Great design but the battery can't even last a day, you have to charge it 2-3 times a day and some other games don't work but the performance of this device is good.
I just got mine today. Was casually loading some photos on it and it just pinged off and won't power back on. No dropages or anything.
Just to let you guys know even though the Acer specs says up to 32 gb expansion iv tested a 64gb micro sd straight into the micro sd slot on my unrooted devices and reads it perfectly the exact sd card i have used with it is sandisk ultra give a shot
Just Got My Acer Tab From School and i was wondering how does one get mobile networks cause i have been searching and there's noluck and i find it useless if i wont be able to access the internet from home
I have been trying to root this device and find it impossible. I have rooted many devices before but this one does not seem to have anything to root it
My Iconia Tab 8 is in Android 4.4.4 and SPLIT-SCREEN is not showing in chrome (I know chrome is supported by the feature) kindly help please..
Acer Iconia is not switching on, it seems it is not charging the battery. What can I do?
Serious issue with the power button, randomly it will not power on even you try for 20-30 min, send it back, they said nothing wrong, fedex it to me, then issue come out, THIS IS A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT!
Stookie, 08 Jan 2015Took tablet home and was easy to set up. Was pleased with tablet until I plugged in headphones... moreYou have to set the volume using the hardware keys so that the warning dialog about the safety of using high volumes will be displayed. You have to click ok on that dialog so you can use the higher volumes.
The sound, speakers, and headphone crackles on this Acer tablet was what lost it for me. I went for another tablet with louder clearer speakers.
But the other features (eg. HDMI, cpu, ram) on this tablet (FHD 1920x1200 version sold at Amazon) were the best compared to the competition. It also had the best 3dmark gfx benchmarks compared to other tablets at this price, so that made it a hard decision for me. This is a perfect tablet esp. the true FHD version(if you can live with subpar speakers) and slightly less bright LCD screen. HDMI is also this tablet's saving point.
Took tablet home and was easy to set up. Was pleased with tablet until I plugged in headphones. I could not believe how bad the sound was when playing youtube videos. Every time tried to put sound up to max (which was very poor at maxium level),the sound reverted to default about halfway along bar. I first thought headphones were at fault, so used headphones with cheap MP3 player & headphones were load and clear. I don't know how Acer can sell a tablet with so so poor sound with headphones. If you like to listen to your tab in whisper mode, then this is the tablet for you.
i have acer portable projector. which model acer tablate is compatible to connect directly to projector?
I bought three of these for my sons on Christmas and every one of them have issues stemming from the power button. Two shut off by themselves and at times refuse to power back on and the power and volume buttons popped out of place on third tablet on Christmas day. My brother in law bought four for his girls and has experienced the power issues on two of theirs also. Not sure why I expected more as I only paid $100 each thru Costco but I figured if they were selling them I'd be getting a quality product. Glad I have my old Apple products so they can have games to play . I definitely would not recommend this tablet to anyone
I Agree this tablet is great on speedy performance, but the competition is there: Lenovo s8-50, Asus me572, and samsung galaxy. It's close but Acer has hdmi & barely beats them in benchmarks. So all of them remain equally good choices depending on which form factor you like, small, thin, better sounding speakers or brighter sharper screen ,etc. I had both Acer& Lenovo but ended up keeping Lenovo. I would have kept both if I needed 2 tablets.
