Review Acer Iconia A1-830 Tablet

 

8-inches of metal. You're looking for an affordable tablet that is compact and stylish? Then you should look at Acer's Iconia A1-830 that wants to convince with a metal back and Intel Atom processor for a price of 170 Euros (~$233).

Stylish design, Light and slim, Metal back, Micro-SD slot, Decent cameras, Bright screen, Relatively high application performance, Good battery runtimes, That Acer consistently works on its tablet and has improved it considerably

No unique design, Touchscreen could be sleeker, Older Android version, Imperfect viewing angles, Screen's low resolution, Short warranty period, The screen could have a higher resolution by now

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...

Solid aluminum build. Affordable. iPad-like 4:3 screen ratio

Low-resolution display. Mediocre performance. Weak battery life

The Acer Iconia A1-830 is notable for how closely it hews to the iPad mini's design, but it's also a serviceable budget-friendly Android tablet in its own right.

Acer Iconia A1-830 Review

 

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

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.

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.

Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet Review

 

Acer has really come out swinging with this device. Not unlike what Motorola did with the Moto G, here Acer creates a tablet that looks great and works great at its price point. At $180 USD, this device is ready to take on the rest of the market at...

Acer Iconia A1-830 review

 

Acer's Intel-powered A1-830 is well-built, but not without some cut corners Remember Acer? The company that, upon Android's introduction, stepped out of its Windows-powered comfort zone and introduced the Iconia A500, a clunky but noble first stab at...

Premium, high quality design ; Easy-to-hold 4:3 ratio ; Nearly stock version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ; Affordable $180 price tag ;

Disappointing display ; Abysmal camera, both in terms of interface and results

Acer did a fine job following up its A1-810 tablet, even if it didn’t give it much of a spec boost. With an exponentially nicer build quality, a unique 4:3 screen ratio and a nearly-untouched Jelly Bean experience, the 830 is a fine device. At just...

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.
