Both devices run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, the Liquid S1 is powered by a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A7 MTK 6589 CPU and PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 only has a Dual-core 1.4 GHz CPU.The Samsung Mega smartphone does have a better battery at 2600 mAh; the Acer Liquid S1 only has a 2400 mAh.

When you look at the specs on both devices there is not much in it, when the Acer Liquid S1 releases this year we would have trouble choosing the best smartphone. Guess it would have to come down to brand really and we believe many would choose the Samsung, but if you chose on specs alone there is not a lot of difference.

So, when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 vs Acer Liquid S1, which one would you choose?
