Acer Iconia A1 Hands On Review

 

Acer didn't just show two Windows 8 machines today, the Aspire R7 and the Aspire P3, but they also took a moment to give its new Android tablet, the Iconia A1, its own moment in the sun. The Acer Iconia […]

Acer will be making two versions of the Iconia A1 available: an 8GB and 16GB version, which will retail for $169 and $199, respectively. At this point, there’s no specific release date for the Android tablet, but an Acer representative says the Iconia...

Acer's Iconia A1-830 is an affordable Android tablet that packs an 8-inch screen in an attractive design, but don't expect blazing performance.

Affordable for 8-inch tablet; Sleek design; Handy Acer Cloud software

Dim display; Underwhelming speakers; Below-average battery life; Older version of Android

For $179, the Iconia A1-830 is an affordable tablet that offers a fairly big screen for a low price. We also like the metal back, which gives this slate a sturdier feel than some other low-cost slates. Unfortunately, the somewhat dim screen and...

Acer Iconia A1-830 review

 

The iPad Mini is a popular tablet for plenty of reasons, including its 7.9-inch, 4:3 display (which is great for reading books and magazines), and its attractive aluminum and glass shell.

Attractive, iPad-aping design ; IPS screen ; MicroSD card slot

Short battery life ; Loaded with bloatware ; Less stable than other budget tablets ; Low-resolution screen

Acer’s latest budget tablet is attractive if you crave that iPad look, but underneath, it’s underpowered and overloaded with pre-installed apps.

The Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet is the designer handbag knock-off of tablets. It looks like a high-end purchase, but it simply -- and fashionably -- fulfills basic needs at a reasonable price. The 7.9-inch slate resembles an Apple iPad Mini at first...

The $179 Acer Iconia A1-830 is stylishly thin and performs consistently smoothly during casual use. With a smooth aluminum back, it feels solid yet comfortable to hold, and it has a microSD card expansion slot.

It runs an older version of Android; performance lags if multiple apps are open or if multitasking; the screen resolution is low for today's standards; it no longer offers a micro-HDMI port.

The Acer Iconia A1-830 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features.

Functional budget slab with a surprising amount on offer

Acer Iconia A1-830 Android tablet review

 

Acer has made a great 7.9in tablet, but it lingers behind its established rivals.

Sub-$250 price ; Aluminum rear casing ; 2MP front cam with face detection

Low resolution screen

Acer has made a decent tablet with the A1-830. It looks like an Apple iPad Mini — which is a good looking tablet — and it will easily perform most tasks without any trouble. Furthermore, the $249 price is attractive.

Hands-on at CES 2014: A budget Android tablet with the same screen size as an iPad mini

People expecting the Acer Iconia A1-830 to be a cheap iPad mini will likely be disappointed. It looks like an iPad mini, but the Android OS means it's nothing like an Apple tablet. It's also not particularly remarkable in terms of the specs it offers,...

Review: Acer Iconia A1-830

 

Not as good as the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HDX 7in, but Acer's budget 7.9in tablet performs well for the money.

Like the Iconia A1 before it, the Acer Iconia A1-830’s price is good. However, unlike its predecessor, the A1-830 delivers passable performance and screen quality, plus a more solid build. In the overall scheme of things, the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire...

Acer Iconia A1-830

 

Last year's Acer Iconia A1 7.9in Android tablet failed to impress us: its low £169 price was unable to make up for a grainy screen and lacklustre performance. This time around, Acer has fitted the Iconia A1-830 with a higher-frequency, dual-core Intel...

Not as good as the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HDX 7in, but Acer’s second stab at a budget 7.9in tablet is a good performer for the money

Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet looks like an iPad Mini twin

 

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the new Acer Iconia A1-830 Android tablet for the iPad Mini – its design is virtually identical to the popular Apple device.
