Acer Iconia Tab A500

CNET

  • Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab A500 tablet is a relatively heavy hunk of plastic, but its Android 3.0 Honeycomb software is a treat. The A500 will be even more fun to use when Google makes it easier to find dedicated Honeycomb apps.
  • Cons: Good Honeycomb apps and widgets are currently hard to find; plastic case looks fairly cheap; heavier and larger than the Xoom.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Review

TechSpot
8 February 2014
  • Conclusion: While taking these sample photos and videos, I can give some feedback on using the screens under direct sunlight. With both tablets set to maximum brightness and auto-dimming disabled, the iPad 2 was much easier to view under these conditions. At times the Iconia Tab was nearly unreadable. Furthermore the grid system that I mentioned earlier was extremely visible under direct sunlight and quite distracting.

  • Summary: Whether it likes it or not, Acer's got a reputation in the consumer electronics business: its computers are rarely the most well made, but they're always the most affordable on shelves.

  • Pros: Crisp, bright display, Commendable Dolby sound quality, Costs less than $500
  • Cons: Less battery life than other tablets, Mediocre camera quality, Slightly thicker than other Honeycomb tablets

ACER Iconia Tab A500 Review

SlashGear
8 November 2011
  • Conclusion: This is a tablet that you're going to decide on purchasing based on your love for the brand Acer, your love for the unique light aluminum back end, or your dislike of the rest of the Android tablets on the market. If I only owned this tablet and an iPad 2, would I use this tablet more often than the iPad? Personally, yes, but that's because I'm hardcore Android Community and I've gotta represent. Might someone else use the iPad 2 more? Probably.
