Comment

Model: The Acer Iconia A3-A30 is an Android tablet with pre-installed Android 5.0 (code name: Lollipop). It has a capacitive multi-touch touchscreen with a size of 10.1 inch, LED backlight and IPS-technology. The display screen has an oleophobic coating and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to protect it from physical damage. Acer has incorporated the Intel Atom Z3735F quad core processor clocked at 1,33 Ghz and 2 GB RAM in this model. Audio is boosted with Dolby Digital Plus technology for better entertainment experience. It weighs about 540 g. The Acer Iconia A3-A30 has a 5 MP primary camera and 2 MP secondary camera. The primary camera is capable of recording 1080p videos (Full HD).

The Geo-tagging feature is available to tag the location of the photo taken. The memory card slot in this model is capable of supporting memory cards with a capacity of up to 128 GB. This tablet lacks cellular connectivity and relies on the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual band WiFi for internet connectivity. It features Bluetooth V4.0, Near Field Communications (NFC) and microUSB v2.0 for media transfer. The non-removable lithium ion battery rated at 5910 mAh lasts about up to 7.5 hours during multimedia use.

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).
Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

0.54 kg:

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.


72.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
