wanderer, 11 Aug 2014The limitation to 32 GB MicroSD cards is the reason I will not buy this tablet. I already have... moreIt has quite a lot of internal space as well, but do you really need all that memory?
It's a very powerful and competent tablet.
For this price, I can't see any competition.
I am very satisfied with this Iconia.
acer, 26 Dec 2014How to move apps on sd card for this device?AstroFile manager app already comes with Acer & is seems faster, so use that for file transfer. Hold down file you need and menu shows copy and paste function.
acer, 26 Dec 2014How to move apps on sd card for this device?File manager app by cheetah allows it. Hop down file brings up menu for copy,cut,paste. Not sure if there r better apps to do it faster.
My first day using, got 7hrs 20min from 2hrs video from ext hdd in airplane mode brightness down, and atleast 3+hrs light webpage browsing with very little video streaming, maybe 1+hr idle time. Got through most of the day with light casual use. I noticed cpu-z identified DPI of display as 320. Is there a way to turn it down to 240dpi to get smaller icons and characters on screen? (maybe rooting?)
Just finished installing the latest update. Split screen only works with a few apps, chrome and youtube in particular. I hope they add split screen support for more apps. Android version is still 4.4.2.
Theres a new update available for split screen support among other things. Downloading it now.
user, 22 Dec 2014the battery drains fast....Have u tried turning brightness setting down all the way and put it on airplane mode.? It supposed to get 5-7hrs doing that. But as you use wifi & turn brightness up and have too many unnecessary software auto updating, that may be reason for the draw on battery (eg.3-4hrs). I'll be receiving one of these tablets in a couple days, so I'll give my own feedback of battery later.
anybody got the latest android 4.4.4 kitkat for iconia a1 840 FHD? and how is it? is the android 5 lollipop available. when do they release?
Rentaguru, 04 Dec 2014I am not having the problems with battery life and regularly get 7-8hours of use with both WiF... moreWhat do you do exactly when you're surfing? Read? I get 4hours of straight heavy web browsing.. This includes video streaming... Also not just reading... YouTube with Facebook videos as well.. Battery is terrible really...
I am not having the problems with battery life and regularly get 7-8hours of use with both WiFi and Bluetooth on and in use.
I suspect that this is connected with the fact there is no ambient light sensor and the fact the Intel SoC does something rather clever with the back light and the display. This can be seen it you go to adjust the screen brightness manually .... you will find there is virtually no difference in screen appearance with maximum and minimum settings. It appears the SoC actively reduces the backlight while changing the display to minimise power usage. With the brightness control wound down to 0 to 10% I find the screen is still legible in all but bright sunlight and I get a long battery life. If I wind the brightness all the way up the screen isn't much brighter except in bright sun and I get the 4 or less hours battery life others appear to get.
The sdcard is NOT limited to 32gb as I can use both 64gb and 128gb cards.
The battery is really poor... Continuous WiFi with moderate volume for youtube won't reach 4hours from full charge. It's snappy with a very beautiful screen. But the battery is truly a major turn off....
Bought this 3weeks ago.... The tablet is snappy and all... But the battery i judt poor... Does not follow what it has declared... 3hours of WiFi is jut poor... That's from full charge btw
BTW is anyone else experiencing blacking of part of the screen for a split second particulary in chrome but Ive noticed it on the app menu and on es file explorer. It seems to be a rendering issue since I think the popup menu in chrome and the on screen buttons and the notification bar are still displayed, but Im not very sure since it happens so fast.
