80% Acer Iconia A1 review: budget Android tablet with a microSD card slot
Source: PC Advisor English
The budget Android tablet market is a brilliant arms race. The Acer Iconia A1 is right in the mix as one of the best tablets in terms of value for money. If you're looking for something to surf the web, use social networks and watch videos on the A1 merits consideration. The fact that it has a microSD card slot makes it a really attractive tablet for £149.

Comment

Model:

Acer has joined the bandwagon of budget tablets by releasing the Acer Iconia A1 product range. The Iconia A1-811 is a 3G version of the tablet. The specs are pretty decent and while the built quality is not spectacular, it looks passable. This Android 4.2.2 (JB) tablet weighs around 430 grams and features 7.9” Active Matrix screen. The plastic screen might not be as rigid as glass, but it will do. Form factor and finish makes it look like something that is quite comfortable to use even if it is not made from premium materials.

The 4960 mAh Li-ion battery powers the MediaTek 1.20Ghz Quad-core processor and 1 GB RAM. Battery life is average and can last a weekend of web browsing with a couple of movies thrown in as suggested by Acer. The device comes with a 16 GB storage space and here is the tiny but surprising part; it comes with a MicroSD slot. This allows even larger savings with the possible addition of a 32 GB memory card instead of purchasing a higher memory capacity tablet. The tablet comes with a rear 5 megapixels and front VGA camera. Acer has kept the software clean with minimal bloatware and that is a good thing. The Acer Iconia A1-811 is value for money with enough capability to make the average user contented.
