Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A30 Tablet Review

 

New, new, new. Fresh Android, new Intel SoC, better cameras - Acer's Iconia Tab 10 aims to be better than former models. We tested the 10.1-inch tablet and now reveal whether it is worth purchasing.

Slip-proof casing, Powerful SoC, Full HD screen, No adware, Swift Wi-Fi module, Pencil-use option, Accurate touchscreen, Low surface temperatures, Speakers' rich sound

Only middling battery life, Increased standby consumption, Screen has greenish tint, Mediocre image photo quality, Poor GPS reception, Pressure-sensitive casing can be warped

Acer's Iconia Tab 10 A3-A30 gives a good presentation, and shows clear improvements over former models. However, it messes up in some details. For example, the casing could have been more stable, the battery life could have been longer, and if the...

Acer Iconia Tab 10 review

  (Rating Hidden)

There's been a bit of a boom in cheaper big-screen tablets, and the 10.1-inch Iconia Tab 10 faces stiff competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7. It's well built, but does Acer's Android tablet have any distinguishing features to...

Fast tablet but...

 

" Coming from a 3 year old tablet to this, the difference in speed is astonishing. 2gigs of ram makes a big difference to browsing the web - flicking between tabs in Chrome is instant and the system doesn't "forget" that I'm using an ad blocker. The...

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Nifty tablet, but not quite perfect

 

" Full HD (1920 x 1200) display, a good camera and a bit more RAM than most. Only gripe is the sensitivity of the screen which seems a bit inconsistent; sometimes it needs quite a poke to get a response, others its so sensitive that links open randomly...

Tablet

 

" Got this as a cheap alternative to an i-pad and glad I did its quick easy to use and looks good to. Picture quality as good as any of the more expensive ones . only bad point is there isn't a proper case for it. But still worth every penny. "
