Reviews for the Acer Iconia One 7 B1-730

60% Acer Iconia One 7
Source: PC Mag English
There's no glaring flaw with the Acer Iconia One 7, and many of its shortcomings can be forgiven considering the low price. Still, the low-end Android market is as competitive as ever, and better, equally affordable options are in abundant supply. The Hisense Sero 7 Pro matches the One 7's price, but offers a better display, longer battery life, and HDMI out for mirroring media content on the big screen. The Nexus 7 is better still, but the $100 price gulf is substantial, especially in this price tier.

The $129 Acer Aspire One 7 provides a solid Android experience in an attractive and affordable package. However, to achieve this price, Acer cut some big corners, with a dull screen, subpar battery life and poor cameras. For $10 more, the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 offers a brighter, more colorful screen, superior cameras, much longer battery life and a slew of helpful software.

PowerVR SGX544: OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible with 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.32 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
