I have this now for more than a day. After initial charging (required 4 hours as per Acer), I immediately used it connected to Wi-Fi. With almost non-stop use (screen almost always on at 10% brightness (screen is really great), I got to about 5 hours before the battery went dead. That included about 30 or so minutes of 3D (Asphalt 8) and 2D (PvZ2) gaming. A little disappointed actually. But perhaps it would do better in a video loop test. I hope. Haven't tested it yet. My Asus MeMo Pad 7 HD fared better last time I used it in my initial tests (7 to 8 hrs.), though I think I wasn't connected; just tinkering with the device and playing some games. In comparison, I also have the Asus ZenFone 5 which I bought 3 weeks ago, and that phone lasted 3:45 to more than 4:30 with Wi-Fi on, screen constantly on, benchmarking, playing games, surfing the net, and a lot if background apps. FYI, Acer has 4600 mAh (i didnt know that; it's just listed as 17Wh); MemoPad is rated at 3,950 mAh; ZenFone has 2,110 man juice). HTH
Several people want to know about the battery life. I have had this tablet since June (yes, long before the official release) and so far I have noticed that it's battery seems to give me much less time than what I get out of my Nexus 7 (the only device I have to compare with). The tablet is larger but I doubt the size of the screen is the root cause. It could be software or it could be a difference in running an Intel vs. ARM processor (maybe both?). Real world experience feels like I get roughly 1/2 to 3/4 the battery life of my Nexus 7. It will last me several days with my usual usage but my Nexus will give me more like a full week of similar usage.
Really I wouldn't say it's battery life is terrible considering that I'm used to charging several of my devices every day but I'm sure it could be better. Perhaps a future software update will help.
Kinda disappoint that it don't have gyro sensor.. (helps in certain game titles)..
But if it priced right then I may consider it...
The limitation to 32 GB MicroSD cards is the reason I will not buy this tablet. I already have 64 GB and 128 GB cards.
It would be perfect if the screen is still 4:3 aspect ratio as 830 and 810 series.
Looks great, great specs & you know what - I love these a bit bigger bezels! I don't get the no-bezels-trend with tablets, come on, not everyone has hands big enough to hold it from the back(its a tablet not a phone). Its actually very comfortable to be able to grab the tablet between 2 fingers on the side without warring that you'll touch the screen; that's how I always hold my old galaxy tab. Plus great screen and processor, 2 GB of RAM and probably nice price... good work Acer, I just found my new tablet :)
