Mobile Tech Review: Acer Iconia A1-830 8 inch Android Tablet Video Review (includes video)
Unlike the Kindle Fire HDX and 2013 Nexus 7 that sport 7″ widescreen displays in glorious full HD, the Acer Iconia A1-830 has a 1024 x 786 display. But for $200 how much can you expect?
The Nexus 7 is getting a bit long in the tooth and the 7 inch screen is just too small for many. The Acer A1-830 ups the ante with a larger screen, expandable memory, Intel processor and a $179.99 price. The tablet is not perfect; the speakers are sub-par and the screen could be better. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive, well-built Android tablet, this may be it. It is a good quality tablet. Recommended.
