Reviews for the Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A20 (NT.L5DEE.003)

85% Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A20 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Multimedia central. Acer designed their Iconia Tab 10 A3-A20 to be a veritable home entertainment system. To that end, they equipped the 10-inch tablet with an HD display, a quad-core SoC and a Dolby sound system. Is the 200-Euro (~$225) Android device worth buying? Read our review to find out.
70% Acer Iconia Tab 10 review: A good Android tablet for under £200
Source: Tech Advisor English version
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. 

ARM Mali-450 MP4: OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU for ARM based SoCs with 4 fragment processors and 1 vertex processor.

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.

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

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.

74.25%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
