Pretty nice tablet for its price.

When it comes to the hardware the only issue is ram and that its only a dualcore.
When browsing with more then 3 tabs while having music running in the background, things can randomly crash or shutdown along with a lowram message in the corner of the screen.(Happens with the webbrowser the most.)

Handles games like Worms,Worms 2 and Carmageddon on android and even emulating games fine. (up to some ps1 titles)
Tested Grand Turismo 2 and Grand Turismo 1.

Handles NES,SNES,GBA,GBC,GB fine ofc ^.^ (have to get used to touch controls ofc heh.)

(It helps alot forcing no other apps to be running aswell.

Go into the developer options
('Background process limit' set that to 1 or 0 then it runs nice and smooth when browsing and other simple things.)

Only thing is that touch might stop responding in some apps if you havent restarted it in a while.
like Death Rally,Carmageddon,RE-VOLT

It has no official support for 'Sonic Dash' for example but managed to install it via external apk files and it ran a bit slow at times but worked pretty ok no graphical glitches but a bit random framedrops at times.

Heavier games like 'Sonic allstars racing transformed' is not a pleasant experience though.
Graphical glitches and random blackscreens is very common on lowend devices like this one.

Quake 1 touch is also running pretty well.

im using this tab for a while now and i'm very satisfied with it so far.. there are a lot of reviews says it always closes on them.. but need to think because of low specs u don't have to bombard it with a lot of games.. i only have two games (plants vs zombies and zombie tsunami) and lots of epub and ebooks; the tab works great! i also use it for net surfing and it works great as well, cam is not good but its ok i don't do selfie..resolution is somewhat pale compared to my samsung.. audio is good but not loud, i used earphones and audio works well, overall, this tab works great for me but if u are up to gadgets, this will not suit you, but if u already have one, the technique is not to install too much apps.. this comes in handy, i use it during my class and monitor students attendance.. very affordable too.. i know Acer is a reliable brand, thanks Acer..

All tablet or gadget sort of will lag when we try to install all of the games and applications on it not thinking of its limit. Its wise to uninstall unwanted apps before we install new ones. Hope this helps. Mabuhay Manila!

This tablet is very reliable, im using it everyday for browsing the net over wifi. Im also satisfied with the battery life, however poor resolution and angle makes no sense for its durability. Its up to you to manage its resources. Techie fellas know what I mean. Acer is acer. A descent tablet for its price. Thanks.
Mabuhay Manila!

I think the cost of this tablet is very high in comparison of its facilities. On line Shopping companies are taking its advantage selling two time cost of actual price. Since this tablet is providing as few as now a days requirement people like me harassing due to loss of hard earned money after its purchase.
