  • 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

    This 7.9-inch Android tablet, an unabashed iPad Mini clone, is built well and looks good, but battery life is among the trade-offs for the under-$200 price. ...

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

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

    Acer's Iconia A1-830 is an affordable Android tablet that packs an 8-inch screen in an attractive design, but don't expect blazing performance....

    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

    With its Iconia A1-830, Acer shows that it might not have as much experience with tablets as with laptops, but that it is able and willing to continuously develop its product.Thus, the Iconia A1-830 is clearly an evolution compared with the A1-810. It fea...

  • Chris Burns 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...

    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 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features....

    Good: Solid aluminum build. Affordable. iPad-like 4:3 screen ratio.

    Bad: Low-resolution display. Mediocre performance. Weak battery life

    The Acer Iconia A1-830 is notable for how closely it hews to the iPad mini's design, but it's also a serviceable budget-friendly Android tablet in its own right....

  • Acer's Intel-powered A1-830 is well-built, but not without some cut cornersRemember Acer? The company that, upon Android's introduction, stepped out of its Windows-powered comfort zone and introduced the Iconia A500, a clunky but noble first stab at the i...

  • Overall, I think this little Acer tablet is a good value at only $180. Sure, it only has a 1024x768 display, but that's on par with the first gen iPad Mini, and it's nearly half the cost (the original Mini still sells for $300). The performance and bui...

  • 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...
