what a tablet!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Acer Iconia A1-810-L416 7.9-Inch 16 GB Tablet (Pure White) (Personal Computers)
I have to say, this is the best tablet I have owned yet. I have owned at least five tablets within the last two years, and out of all of them this has been the best overall. Except, maybe, for the Acer a 100 I purchased in the beginning two years ago.
this tablet has the same screen size as the iPad mini, but this one also has everything with it including extra SD memory card slot. Also it has the front and rear facing cameras, plus quad core processor!!! Not to mention it has a high definition screen and all the extras including bluetooth 4.0. I can easily hold it with one hand without any issues. Unlike what it says in the description, this comes fully equipped with Android 4.2.2. This tablet is super fast! It also comes equipped with GPS, I opened Google Navigation and within seconds, it connected to satellites and found me within 1 foot of where I was! What's great is the fact that it doesn't have to be connected to the internet for directions. I immediately hopped in my car and drove forty-five miles to my parents house and it got me there in one piece without any wifi connection whatsoever. I can honestly say I think this tablet deserves five stars across the board! Absoluely a fabulous tablet and I recommend it to anyone and everyone wanting a tablet. The best thing about this tablet, is the fact that it is under $200. That is an unbelievable price for a quad core processor for Android 4.2 tablet!!! In fact, this tablet out does earlier Acer models, there are not any heat problems with this model either. Just buy it, you will not regret it! This tablet is even better than the iPad mini easily. Just try it, you will definitely agree. Wow! I spoke this review via the microphone option on my Acer a1-810 tablet. It does great!

How, s the battery life on it? I have the acer A100 and battery life is really short, looking for an improvement.

8hr battery life on wifi- and video, I can be on it all day without re-charging, plus it can set on standby for a few days too

Battery life not as good as ipad mini. But is acceptable.
For the same usage:
I have to charge the Acer A1 once every 2 days.
For the Ipad mini, I charge it every 3 days.

But looking at an iPad mini with dual core vs Acer with quad core, more power to run

read reviews about aser8.1, nobody was happy with the screen performance: difficult to find an exact angle to see better/ how about this model?

Definite upgrade, great performance and 170 degree viewing angles. I am very happy with it

Thanks for your glowing review, what enthusiasm! ! I am wondering: did you use a speech to text writing app? If so, is it on the tab, and how does it work? Thank you, Anne

actually I did use the speech to text, all you have to do is hit themicrophone button and say what you want to say and it types it out, its pretty good too.

Thank you. I've been looking at the two models L416 and L888 and I can't for the world of me figure out how they differ. There is incredibly conflicting information on amazon and even at the acer website, regarding reslution and processor. Would you mind telling us which model you have and what the exact specs are? Would really appreciate it.

I had the same problem and contacted Acer, they said there was no difference, but after purchasing the l416, I found out it has the cortex a7 quad core, and the l888 has the cortex a9 quad core processor, both clock the same at 1.2 GHz, different sites say different things but most say the a7 is a little faster but the a9 is newer and cheaper to make, I am not sure really, but both have same exact specs otherwise, both come with 4.2.2 android, I have the l416 at it is fast. I looked it up on a couple of sites that benchmarked both models and they said the a7 cortex clocked faster than the a9 with everyday use. I have no problems, I really like it. When I was contacted back by Acer they just told me the l416 was for consumers and l888 was geared more for business use. That's what I was told by 2 supervisors at Acer. That's all I know about the differences, hope that helps
