There's little to get excited about with the Acer Iconia Tab 10 but that's fine with a very affordable price tag of £179. It's plain in appearance and quite heavy but apart from a few too many pre-loaded apps, the tablet offers good performance and decent storage plus a handy microHDMI port. Overall it's a good choice if you're looking to spend under £200 on a large Android tablet.

The Iconia Tab 10 is a fairly unimaginative budget Android tablet that is noticeably light on innovation and features. The device has an unassuming design and offers slightly below average camera and processor performance compared with most other Android tablets. However, when you consider the £180 price tag this is to be expected. The Iconia Tab 10 offers a stable way to access the internet and mount basic productivity tasks, making it a solid, if dull, choice for buyers on a budget looking for a 10in tablet.

Model: The Acer Iconia Tab 10 is made from silky white plastic and sports a sharp 10 inch display that is designed to be used in a landscape orientation. The 10.1 inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. This HD display features the Zero Air Gap technology that ensures increased vibrancy and image sharpness. The viewing angle is considerably wide at 170 degrees due to its IPS technology. There is a rather wide bezel around the screen. So, your thumb can rest there without interrupting the screen.
The tablet is also reasonably thin at 8.9 mm thick and weighs only 540 grams, which makes it extremely light in order to be held in one hand. This tablet is powered by a quad core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8127 with a 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. This storage can be expanded up to 32 GB as there is a microSD slot available. The OS on this machine is an Android 4.4. There are a rear camera with a resolution of 5 MP and 2 MP front camera. The main attraction of the Acer Iconia Tab 10 is its relatively more affordable price and its 10 inch display, which is rare for mid-range tablets nowadays.

The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.
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.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
