    Unless you want an iPad or iPad mini, it's not easy to find an Android tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio display. Acer comes to the rescue with an 8" midrange Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio IPS display, Intel Atom dual core CPU and cam...

    Good: Intel chipset, Diagonal size, MicroSD card expandable memory, Metal body with stereo speakers

    Bad: Low pixel density, Poor color interpretation, Runs an older version of Android, No microHDMI port

    £139.99 Argos.co.ukLast year's Acer Iconia A1-810 had promise but also some glaring shortcomings. The latest edition, the Iconia A1-830, offers significant improvements like somewhat more modern specifications for a price well under $200.This is a 7.9-inc...

    Good: Well-built aluminum chassis, IPad-like 4-to-3 display aspect ratio, Decent audio, display quality for price

    Bad: No HDMI-out, Mediocre cameras, Short battery life

    If imitation is truly the sincerest form of flattery, then the tablet we’re looking at here today, Acer’s Iconia A1-830, borders on idol worship.Granted, in one way or another, every compact tablet (which we define as a model with a screen from 7 to 9...

    Good: Affordable for 8inch tablet; Sleek design; Handy Acer Cloud software

    Bad: Dim display; Underwhelming speakers; Belowaverage battery life; Older version of Android

    As far as affordable Android tablets go, Acer's Iconia A1-830 is the category's prettiest entry yet. For a compelling $179, the iPad mini lookalike offers a 7.9-inch display and an Android Jelly Bean experience with Intel's Clover Trail processor running ...

    Good: Stylish design, Light and slim, Metal back, MicroSD slot, Decent cameras, Bright screen, Relatively high application performance, Good battery runtimes

    Bad: No unique design, Touchscreen could be more sleek, Older Android version, Imperfect viewing angles, Screen's low resolution, Short warranty period

    We tested the precursor about nine months ago: Acer's Iconia A1-810 . That was a decent tablet, but it had a few weaknesses in form of a low resolution, faulty GPS, and seemingly cheap feel. Now the successor, Iconia A1-830, wants to improve a few things....

    Today we're having a look at a tablet that's very familiar, yet a whole new concept in Acer's brand of tablet releases. Here with the Acer Iconia A-830-1633 , you're getting an Android tablet that's working with a 7.9-inch display with a moderate resoluti...

    Good: The $179 Acer Iconia A1830 is stylishly thin and performs consistently smoothly during casual use. With a smooth aluminum back, it feels solid yet comfortable to hold, and it has a microSD card expansion slot.

    Bad: It runs an older version of Android; performance lags if multiple apps are open or if multitasking; the screen resolution is low for today's standards; it no longer offers a microHDMI port

    The Acer Iconia A1-830 tablet is the designer handbag knock-off of tablets. It looks like a high-end purchase, but it simply -- and fashionably -- fulfills basic needs at a reasonable price. The 7.9-inch slate resembles an Apple iPad Mini at first glance,...

    Good: Solid aluminum build. Affordable. iPadlike 4:3 screen ratio.

    Bad: Lowresolution display. Mediocre performance. Weak battery life

    You almost have to applaud Acer for its brazen, shall we say, homage—the Iconia A1-830 is one of the most faithful iPad mini$525.00 at Amazon copycats I've ever seen. Does that mean it's a complete write-off? Not necessarily. For $179.99 (16GB),...

    But despite its lack of a blockbuster hit, Acer has honed its Iconia line into a budget-friendly, solidly built alternative to its expensive competitors. Last summer's A1-810 was built to compete with the iPad mini for half the price: the end product was ...

    While many budget smartphones have come a long way in proving that "affordable" no longer necessarily means "bad" over the past few years (Moto G, anyone?), the budget tablet is still oftentimes a gamble. On one hand, devices like the Nexus 7 provide a...

    The price makes the A1-830 even cheaper than the £269 iPad Mini and £200 Google Nexus 7 . However, with both the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini featuring superior specifications, some might question whether price alone will be enough to secure a place for the A1-8...
