The right size at the right price!,
This review is from: Acer Iconia A1-810-L416 7.9-Inch 16 GB Tablet (Pure White) (Personal Computers)
This is the tablet I've been waiting for forever! I have an apple ipad mini and I love the screen size over the more common 7inch tablets most brands are offering now. I love the fact than I can view flash content videos which the mini iPad couldn't do.
Enter the acer a1:
It has the lovely 7.9inch screen ratio 4:3 for better web browsing. I'm not fond of 16:9 formats.
Quad core - Boot up is 1 sec slower than ipad mini.
HDMI !! Very useful for playing movies on.
External sd! I just inserted a 16GB microSD - it works :)
1)Larger, thicker and 100g heavier than ipad mini.
2)Front camera is pretty bad for webcam. Acer placed the 5MP camera at the back.
3) Although the resolution is supposedly similar to Ipad Mini, the Acer is really less sharp and has yellow cast in the whites. The screen is really not as good as the IPAD mini. Image looks sunken in - unlike Samsung & Ipads - image appears near surface of screen. (viewing angle is also not as good).
4)Battery life is not comparable to iPad mini - ipads are invincible when it comes to battery life.
5)The speaker is too soft!
6) Web browsing tends to hang sometimes.
At half the price it is very good.
Plus i can now watch flash content and live streaming, which the main reason I bought this pad for.

I realise a bug in the Acer A1 8100:
Took 4 hours to trouble shoot.
If you enable the 4 tap image enlarger (correction: its actually 3 tap image enlarger - under settings=> accessibility), the tap function of the pad delays up to a second making it impossible to play pinball and all tap games.
So I disabled the 3 tap imager enlarger under "settings=>accessibility" and the tap becomes ultra responsive now.

Hi annie,.. it's under accessibility. It's 3 tap and not 4 tap like I mentioned.

You need to turn off "Magnification Gestures" under Accessibility. I was having the same touch sensitivity issue. Once I turned that feature off, it was fine.
