Acer’s Iconia Tab 10 is a perfectly functional tablet, with the battery life and value-for-money being its banner features. It is placed in the same bracket as the iPad Air 2, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, based on the size, but when it comes to the price tag, it is significantly cheaper, in the ballpark of USD 170 (~ INR 11,000) which is a fraction of the cost of the other two.

That said, this is for average users, who are looking for a bigger screen to do everyday things like reading emails, browsing the web or even writing out word docs/blogs. Photos and photo editing are a no-no as the screen won’t do justice to your media (more on that later).

It is a nice looking tablet with a clean and simple design. With its size, though, it is can be awkward to hold in one hand thanks to it’s largish 10.1-inch screen.

Speaking of which, the screen is 1,280×800 pixel Active Matrix TFT LCD screen, which is not pin sharp, but can be considered good enough for watching things on. It is touch sensitive enough for regular typing and scrolling without any glitches. The screen is also protected by Gorilla Glass, which should ensure it survives scratches and minor collisions (in the bag).

Under the hood, it comes with 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8127 for a processor, paired with 1 GB RAM. The tablet should be good for you if you are someone who likes to run a couple of things simultaneously on the tablet. The tablet comes with 32 GB internal memory, thankfully expandable with a microSD slot.

Acer has never really had much of a reputation when it comes to cameras, and the Iconia’s 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front facing snapper don’t do anything to challenge that reputation.

Operating system wise, the Iconia Tab 10 rides vanilla Android 4.4 KitKat, which Acer has thankfully not tampered with! Most manufacturers in the market today load their devices with their own user interface, a skin on top of the OS, customizing the user experience, not necessarily always in a good way. Though a few people might be disappointed that it does not come with more updated versions of the OS, especially given that the devices this year are on Android 7.0 Nougat – but with the processor that’s driving the machine, a heavier OS may’ve sunk it.

Keep in mind though, that the tablet’s speakers – a pair of Dolby-certified ones sit on the rear of the device are easy to block with your hands in landscape mode. As a result of that, the sound quality also suffers when the tablet is placed flat on surfaces like tables or beds, as the speakers get blocked/muffled.

The nicest thing that can unfortunately, be said about the tablet is that it is adequate; it does not excel in any area whatsoever. There isn’t anything about the device that can particularly be disliked, but the fact is that the rivals in the market are markedly superior, and will practically wipe this one out soon enough.
