WHAT IS Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet LIKE?

WHAT IS  Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet LIKE?


Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet is around the size of an ipad mini or a samsung tab 4 7 Inch. The on off switch is on the upper right hand side (with screen facing you) and below it is a rocker switch just below the power switch. There is a space between the two buttons which will allow for elastic bands should you want to get a case for it that has them. That will make it so that the tablet will not be turned on and off by accident. The power button has to be pushed and held for a moment before the unit turns on.

Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet screen is shiny which can be annoying, but that is the nature of the beast.
The touch sensitivity is excellent- I did not find any problems with response time or lag.
The orientation changing when you turn the screen around is also well set. It works nicely and is not overly sensitive.

To input into  Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet, you have a choice to either type or speak what you want the tablet to do. I have to say that this tablet responds very well to either set of input. After working with several i-pads, my daughter constantly raves about how this Acer tablet is superior in the way it responds to input with the microphone than the i-pads are. I have not had any problem with typing into this tablet beyond what I normally do on any unit. The microphone occasionally mistypes a word, but it is not nearly as bad as I expected it to.

Response time of the tablet is excellent. I am quite impressed with how quickly it responds to input without lag or difficulty.

I have put a few apps on this unit which tend to be popular with tablet users. Sketchbook Pro is one of those apps. I really like it. The response time is good, and the app seems to work well on this tablet. I also love the radio app which allows you to listen to radio stations in the area or around the country. With a case that folds into a stand, it is a great panel to use in a room where you want to listen to the radio.

Quite a few apps that come in the tablet already are handy and easy to use. The screen is quite intuitive and easy to use.

Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet is wi-fi accessible to the internet which means that you can not go out in no-man's land to use it like you can an android phone, but you have to be near a wi-fi station to use it.

The wi-fi response time is excellent- although it does occasionally lag when the signals get weak- something that all wi-fi units will do.

Android is a Google engine so everything you do will be monitored by Google or you will be using something they have designed to get where you want to go. You can find other ways to purchase apps if you don't like the Google store, however, such as Amazon.

This tablet comes with McAfee virus scan which is not a huge deal, but I am not sure how to replace that yet, should I desire to do so.

I am not a big advocate of phone and tablet cameras. This one has a decent camera to use on the back, and an adequate camera on the front of the camera to use for Skype which is pretty much all you need. If you want a really nice camera, buy one. For quick pictures to capture something you want to show someone, then this will be fine.

Easy to hold
Screen responsive
Speech recognition works well
Good fast performance
Boots up quickly
Clear screen makes reading books nice
Good colors for photos on the screen (better than laptops)
Power button hard to accidentally turn on or off
Learning is pretty intuitive for first time users

Wi-fi only
Not as easy to use as laptop for extensive typing
Can be a bit clumsy to use at times (the nature of tablets)
Start up literature is a bit underwhelming for first time users


Can you get rid of your laptop to substitute this tablet? My answer would be no.

Even if all you did was go on the internet to wander through web sites, using a tablet is a bit cumbersome if you want to do any kind of extensive writing. If you use the microphone, it will probably be pretty accurate, but you will still have to use the keyboard to correct what is used.

For occasional internet usage, watching videos, movies, and reading books, this tablet is fabulous. I think it works beautifully. I would say that it is just as nice as other more expensive tablets and you will invest a lot less money in it.

If you want a tablet and do not want to pay a fortune for it, this is the way to go. The Acer Iconia A1-830 is an excellent value and I use mine a lot. I just could not substitute it completely for my laptop. I prefer to have a choice in my browser, features, and fine tuning or replacement of parts should I desire to do so.

I do find that having the tablet helps a lot when I want to quickly do something on the internet and don't want to boot up my laptop. This tablet is pretty quick and I like it. If you are a tech fanatic and have to have the biggest and best, you might find fault with  Acer Iconia A1-830-1633 7.9-Inch Tablet, however. It is worth a test run in any case.
