Acer Iconia Tab 10 review  June 28, 2020 – 08:31 am
An affordable 10in Android

The Acer Iconia Tab 10 is the Taiwanese company’s 10.1-inch entertainment-focused tablet. It's in the same size bracket as the excellent iPad Air 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, though it’s significantly cheaper at just £179.99.

“See the difference and feel the beat” is the Iconia’s tagline. We disagree, since both the screen and speakers have a few problems. It’s a perfectly functional tablet, with battery life and value being its biggest strengths. However, the funky-looking Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+, now available for £169.99, is better overall.

Acer Iconia Tab 10 – Design

Its glossy white plastic fascia is attached to the tough aluminium rear via a white plastic frame. The curved corners and sides feel nice in the hands, though the frame itself isn’t quite uniform with the front face. It juts out a little, which is annoying because it digs into your thumbs when you’re holding it. The primary camera also sticks out of the rear side, which is unusual and unsightly.

You’ll struggle to hold it in one hand for long periods of time, but 520g is light for a 10-inch tablet at this price. The slightly larger Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 weighs significantly less, at 465g, but also costs over £200 more. Meanwhile, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ weighs a monstrous 626g.

The Iconia Tab 10 is a friendly size too, at 256 x 171 x 8.9mm. However, in portrait mode it looks awkwardly tall and thin, but we’ll focus more on that later in the review.

The Iconia comes with 32GB of flash memory as standard, but you can expand this via the microSD card slot. There are ports for Micro USB and HDMI too, which is a generous offering overall. In landscape mode, all of these, as well as the power button and headphone jack, sit on the left edge. While this setup will please most left-handers, it also makes it tricky to hold the tablet when headphones are plugged in, since the jack sits exactly where your hand would usually be.
