Reviews for the Acer Iconia Tab A1-810
Source: Ubergizmo English
The majority of the Iconia A1 is covered in plastic, that majority being its rear panel and the device’s surrounding rim. The back of the Iconia A1 is white, while the surrounding rim has a silver lining. The front panel is completely made of glass and there’s a black bezel surrounding its 7.9-inch display, which is capable of a 1024 x 768 resolution. Even though the Iconia A1 only has 1GB of RAM and a quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor, it felt very responsive and smooth during our short time with it, although that might have something to do with its Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The last of its specs feature a microUSB and microHDMI ports and a microSD card slot.

Acer's Iconia was among the first to pioneers in affordable android tablets. The latest addition, the A1-810, comes with a 7.9 inch size, a quad-core processor and the latest Jelly Bean 4.2.2 operating system. Look and feel of Iconia A1 is nothing special and fails to keep up with the class-leading iPad mini in terms of weight and thickness. Fortunately, a micro SD slot and a micro HDMI port are available. So, consumers can expand the internal memory if needed and HD contents like pictures and movies can be projected projecting HD contents without requiring any extra cables or adaptors.
The Iconia A1-810's 10-point capacitive touchscreen is a LED back-lit panel with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It’s not spectacular, yet reasonable. A distinctive feature is the embedded Android: Touch WakeApp. This configuration utility allows users to awake or unlock the tablets or launch any apps with five finger swiping gestures or two thumbs aside. As a tablet, two cameras are available, a 5MP rear camera with no flash and a 0.3MP front camera. The photos of the 5MP camera may not be the sharpest, but it is sufficient for snapshots. Battery life is pretty decent with an average of 8 hours. The Acer Iconia A1-810 definitely delivers a great value for money and compensates the desire to have a pricey iPad mini instead.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
