Acer Iconia W4 review: a big upgrade to a small Windows tablet


Acer's Iconia W3 wasn't quite the best introduction to 8-inch Windows tablets; we liked it, but its subpar display and modest performance kept it from

Much-improved display ; Above-average battery life ; Good performance for the money

Slightly bulky compared to other 8-inch Windows tablets ; Subpar speakers

The Iconia W4 may not stand out in any one area, but it's a textbook example of how to do a small Windows tablet with a solid design, a pleasant display and long battery life.

The Acer Iconia W4 is a well-designed 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with a gorgeous IPS display and very good battery life.

Beautiful display; Long battery life; Solid build quality; microHDMI port

Heftier than 8-inch competition; Lackluster camera; Speakers a bit soft

Acer's Iconia W4 is a very capable Windows 8.1 tablet that packs a beautiful display into a sturdy frame. We also like that the Iconia W4 offers a micro HDMI port, which lets you easily share content on a big screen. However, while the W4 is sleeker...

Windows 8.1 tablet is highly evolved

Excellent screen ; Office included ; Battery life

Processing power ; Port selection ; Misleading storage capacity

If you pick up the Acer Iconia W4 tomorrow, you're unlikely to be disappointed. It can perform a far wider range of tasks than your average iPad or Android tablet thanks to the inclusion of Windows 8.1 and the ability to install legacy Windows programs.

Acer Iconia W4 review


The Acer Iconia W4 is the company's latest stab at a Windows 8 tablet. It's a step up from the earlier W3 model thanks to Intel Bay Trail Atom processor innards and a higher resolution 8.1-inch display. That's Windows 8.1 in an 8.1-inch tablet - it...

Good screen viewing angles, full Windows 8.1, decent battery life, super-fast browsing, microSD storage

Can lack performance speed, plasticky finish, screen resolution could be higher

Acer's latest Windows 8 tablet improves on its predecessor in almost every way. But is that enough? Find out in our Acer Iconia W4 review

A solid 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with good battery life

Good battery life ; Improved display ; Micro HDMI support ; Office comes pre-installed

Slightly sluggish performance ; Uninspiring design ; Too much bloatware

The speakers, meanwhile, aren't anything spectacular. The twin speakers sit on the bottom edge of the tablet and in landscape mode it’s very easy to cup the one furthest away from the Home button. They are not very powerful and while it doesn't suffer...

Review: Acer Iconia W4


The Acer Iconia W4 is an inexpensive and reasonably nippy Windows 8 compact tablet.

The Acer Iconia W4 is a huge improvement on its predecessor, largely thanks to the inclusion of an IPS screen and faster processor. It also narrowly beats the VivoTab Note 8 thanks to eMMC storage, improved battery life and additional video output. It...

The Acer Iconia W4 is the company's second stab at a compact Windows 8.1 tablet, and it hopes to make amends for last year's disappointing Iconia W3. On paper, it does everything right: the Iconia W4 packs in a nippier Atom Bay Trail processor, bundles...

Acer gets it right on the second attempt: the Iconia W4 is an inexpensive, reasonably nippy Windows 8 compact tablet
