Techbargains Review - Acer Iconia Tab A500-10S16U 10.1-Inch Tablet Computer

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Now that the new Honeycomb version of the Android operating system is out, we wondered how it would fare against the venerable king of tablets, the iPad and its iOS operating system. Would the better specs of the Acer Iconia ($449.99) make for a better user experience?
  • Pros: Fast Processor, Big Screen, Ports Galore, Sound Quality
  • Cons: Lack of Apps, Media Playback and Online Content, Battery Life, Cameras

  • Summary: The Acer Iconia A500 ended up being a bit of a mixed bag and as an overall experience, we were left wanting more. On paper, it appeared as if the A500 can do no wrong what with a Tegra 2 processor under the hood and 1GB of memory.

  • Conclusion: The screen is very responsive and Android 3 is a pleasure to use. Nvidia has added an app store for games, but Acer’s bundled apps are a little uninspiring. SocialJogger brings Facebook and Twitter feeds together, and Photo Browser 3D lets you flick through images using the tablet’s motion sensors.

  • Summary: Das Tegra 2-Tablet von Acer hat als einziges von uns getesteten Tablets einen herkömmlichen USB-Port, an den beispielsweise USB-Speichersticks angeschlossen werden können. Die Verarbeitung ist hochwertig, wobei  das Gerät deutlich dicker ist, als die Konkurrenz von Samsung oder Asus.
  • Pros: Qualitativer Bildschirm, Sehr gute Ausstattung (USB Anschluss), Solide Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Etwas dick und schwer
