84% Acer Iconia One 8 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
And yet another One... Acer's Iconia One 8 tablet is inexpensive, easy to handle and comes with Android 5. Read in this report to find out whether the tablet has been made with bargain hunters in mind or if it will also be suitable for more demanding buyers.
80% Acer Iconia One 8 review

The Iconia One 8 isn't as good value as the Tesco Hudl 2, but its Precision Plus touchscreen does give it a fun, extra feature to make it stand out. Its snappy internals are also great for its price, and its excellent build quality and wide range of colours give it more personality than other £150 tablets. If you're not fussed about its sketching capabilities and want a longer-lasting battery, though, the £150 Asus MeMO Pad 7 ME572C is a much better buy.

Hands on: Acer Iconia One 8 review
Source: Techradar English
The Iconia One 8 feels like a good tablet for its low asking price, but it's mostly down to Acer's Precision Plus technology. It's the sort of slate that would be perfect in a classroom or for any budding artists who wants something better for sketching.

Acer Iconia One 8 hands-on review: Android Lollipop tablet is cheap and cheerful
Source: PC Advisor English
There's not much to get excited about when it comes to the Acer Iconia One 8. But this little tablet is quite good looking, very affordable and comes with almost stock Android 5.0 Lollipop making it potentially a great value purchase for those not looking for frills.

Acer Iconia One 8 (2015)
Source: Trusted Reviews English
With a budget device like the Acer Iconia One 8, it all comes down to price. The UK pricing for the old version was £120, and the European pricing for this new version is €179, which puts it at around £130. For that price, you’re getting a fair cop from Acer. It runs Android 5.0 with ease, the touchscreen is receptive, there are two cameras, and you’re getting a HD display.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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).
Z3735G: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel (32 bit) DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
8":

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.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.34 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


82%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
