Reviews for the Acer Iconia Tab A110

Were it not for the subpar screen and battery life, the Acer Iconia Tab A110 would have made an interesting alternative to the Nexus 7, as many people have complained about the lack of microSD expansion and micro HDMI out capability. Unfortunately, the screen is a significant downgrade, the overall design feels cheap, and the A110 is more expensive than the Nexus 7 even though it offers half the internal storage. On top of that, Google has moved onto its next version of Android, 4.2, and though it's more of an incremental upgrade, there's no telling if or when the A110 might see that update. If you absolutely must have microSD and HDMI out on your tablet, the A110 could make a suitable option, but otherwise, just spend less and get more with the Nexus 7.

The Acer Iconia Tab A110 doesn't stand up to the obvious competition from the Nexus 7, let down by a chunky design and low-grade screen. It's more expensive than Google's tablet, with less storage, so unless you need a microSD card slot or micro HDMI port, you’ll find a better all-round device in Google’s subsidised Nexus 7.

The A110 has a less impressive screen than the Nexus 7 and a lower capacity battery. On the other side of the mattress, it has a Micro SD card slot and an HDMI port. In my book that makes it a close call, although Android updates will roll out to the Nexus 7 faster than to the Acer. If display quality is your main desire, buy the Nexus 7 but if it’s storage flexibility that floats your boat, then the Acer is definitely worth a look.

Ever since Samsung released its low-cost 7in Galaxy Tab 2 earlier this year, manufacturers have been falling over themselves to release low-cost compact tablets. First there was the excellent Nexus 7, then we saw the Amazon Fire HD, and there are more launches just around the corner. Not a terrible tablet, but the Nexus 7 is superior in almost every way – and cheaper.
