What Do We like
The display of this Iconia device is 8 inches. It comes with an LED 720p (1280×800) high definition display that shows every image and video with great detail. It is a touchscreen device, and this IPS display also supports multi-touch of up to 5 fingers. The true tones and rich colors of this display will mesmerize you. It barely misses any detail from delivering to you.
There are two cameras on this Acer tablet, one is on the back, and another is the front-facing camera. The rear 5MP camera can record 720p videos and capture decent quality images with proper visibility and clarity. The front-facing camera is a VGA 2MP camera that works well. It provides enough quality for you to do a video call.
The battery backup of this mid-ranged device is pretty good. It comes with one lithium polymer batteries that will last for 3-4 hours on continuous video playback (Depending on the screen brightness). If you are using this for your work purpose, then on a full charge this device will give you a battery back up of 10 hours. You can easily complete your day’s work using this tablet.
The configuration of this tablet is pretty decent from every aspect.

Android 7.0 enables your device with many extra features and the 16GB flash memory is very fast in reading and writing too. All over the performance of this Iconia device is decent.
What We Don’t Like
There is only a single speaker on this Iconia tablet. The sound gets distorted if you play any audio track at a higher volume, there is no noticeable bass, and the sound is not loud at all. In crowded places, you won’t be able to hear anything.
This can be said as one of the decent products from the Iconia series. Acer is providing with pretty much every feature one finds in a decent tablet. The performance is also quite good for this price range. This also comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty on the product and accessories too. The build quality is good and recommended for daily usage. This product is good value for money and is worth buying.
