At a price of $249, it's hard to see the A1 830 as good value, even if it does compete on price quite well with Apple's own iPad Mini, which Acer is drawing heavy inspiration of.The problem is there are better options for a little bit more out there, and...

The Iconia can't match up to the Nexus 7. The screen, power levels, battery life and software will all...

At a glance, it's almost a dead-ringer for Apple's smaller tablet, sporting a very mini-like physical design, right down to the 7.9-inch display, thin brushed-aluminium chassis (with very iPad-like curved corners and edges) and the placement of the power...

Unless you want an iPad or iPad mini, it's not easy to find an Android tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio display. Acer comes to the rescue with an 8" midrange Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio IPS display, Intel Atom dual core CPU and...

Overall, I like the Acer Iconia A1-830. It's quite a powerful tablet, but at a pretty low-end price point. Given the competition in this space, the A1-830 is quite an attractive option, but it's not without issue.There are a couple of areas I feel Acer...

You might not immediately think of Acer when looking at tablet options, but if you are on a really tight budget and want to give a 7.9in Android tablet a go, it would be worth glancing in the direction of the Acer Iconia A1-830. Its biggest problems are...

The Acer Iconia A1-830 is inexpensive, well finished and decent for multimedia purposes. But it also has puny battery life and low brightness. All in all, for the price, we think it's an alright...

£139.99 Argos.co.ukLast year's Acer Iconia A1-810 had promise but also some glaring shortcomings. The latest edition, the Iconia A1-830, offers significant improvements like somewhat more modern specifications for a price well under $200.This is a...

Chris Burns Today we're having a look at a tablet that's very familiar, yet a whole new concept in Acer's brand of tablet releases. Here with the Acer Iconia A-830-1633 , you're getting an Android tablet that's working with a 7.9-inch display...

With its Iconia A1-830, Acer shows that it might not have as much experience with tablets as with laptops, but that it is able and willing to continuously develop its product. Thus, the Iconia A1-830 is clearly an evolution compared with the A1-810 ....

The Acer Iconia A1-830 is notable for how closely it hews to the iPad mini's design, but it's also a serviceable budget-friendly Android tablet in its own right.

By Android Police on

Overall, I think this little Acer tablet is a good value at only $180. Sure, it only has a 1024x768 display, but that's on par with the first gen iPad Mini, and it's nearly half the cost (the original Mini still sells for $300). The performance and...

Acer's Intel-powered A1-830 is well-built, but not without some cut cornersRemember Acer? The company that, upon Android's introduction, stepped out of its Windows-powered comfort zone and introduced the Iconia A500, a clunky but noble first stab at the...

Acer has made a decent tablet with the A1-830. It looks like an Apple iPad Mini — which is a good looking tablet — and it will easily perform most tasks without any trouble. Furthermore, the $249 price is...

The Iconia A1, or to give it its full name, the A1-830 is a new version of Acer's original A1 Android tablet but still featuring Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean - there's no word on when a newer version of the OS might be available for the device. The Iconia...

The price makes the A1-830 even cheaper than the £269 iPad Mini and £200 Google Nexus 7 . However, with both the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini featuring superior specifications, some might question whether price alone will be enough to secure a place for the...
