Nice screen, brisk OS and a lightweight tablet

from Coolsmartphone

A fairly average contender within the 7″ tablet category this. There were a few too many creaks from the chassis and it twisted all too easily – making the screen produce some strange colours. My main gripes are the sheer amount of apps pre-installed. Sure, I can understand one or two apps, but the entire Amazon suite? This isn’t a Kindle, why is it all here? And why do I need all the other additions too?

It delivered all the apps and widgets fairly trouble-free without any real hint of a struggle, despite only having 1GB of RAM. The on-screen keyboard was responsive and it was light enough to hold in one hand.

As for the cameras, they were really just for show and you wouldn’t want to use them in anger.

It left me with a feeling that this is a tablet within a low price-range that’ll get bought for kids. Those kids will just throw it around and play Angry Birds on it. They’re not going to use the many, many Acer apps or the many, many Amazon apps or the many, many other apps – so why are they really there?...

If you're in the market for a budget tablet you can share with children, I'm sorry to say it, but Acer has missed the mark with the Iconia One 7. Yes, the processor is speedy, but almost everything else I can think to say about the tablet is no better than average.

While Acer has a reputation for providing cheap and cheerful electronics, they usually feel like they'll last significantly longer than the One 7 seems likely to. I can only really recommend it for those looking something cheap to tide them over until they can afford a better tablet, or for those on a very strict budget – and even then, there are still better options around.

Notebookcheck

Offers a ton at a low cost

from Notebookcheck

We are fans of the 7-inch IPS display with HD resolution and good color representation. However, the display could be brighter -- as it is, the tablet is not always useable outdoors. Compared to other devices in its class, the device's application performance is good as well. For its price class, the tablet's graphics capabilities are certainly acceptable and allow for a fun gaming experience at limited detail settings. The WLAN module does its job reliably and well, though it could offer somewhat stronger reception. Unfortunately, 3G is not available, even as an add-on. At 8 GB, the internal storage is theoretically sufficient, but only 3.24 GB remains available to the user. As a result, the tablet will essentially require the buyer to expand the storage space via microSD card. The fact that apps cannot be stored on a microSD card is nothing new in this price class, but this is a massive shortcoming. The stereo speakers generate an acceptable sound -- the camera modules, however, are completely worthless. Still, the tablet's battery life does it credit, even if it cannot last the whole day without some charge time. The creaky case is less appealing, though it is relatively stable and its manufacturing is clean...

All that to say, the tablet does offer a lot of "bang for your buck" -- its price-performance ratio is good. For just 99 Euros (~$134), you can currently get a fun, colorful tablet if you want, but you will have to make a few concessions. If you are willing to do that, the Acer Iconia One 7 B1-730 is a solid entry-level tablet. However, those who have a tendency to make hasty decisions may be better off taking the time to extensively compare the various options, as the number of tablets in this price range is quite high.

If you're on a shoestring budget, it's hard to argue against the Acer Iconia One 7's bargain basement starting price. At $129, it's $100 less than the top 7-inch tablets like the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7, and if you just want a slate for basic tasks like checking email, browsing the Web, and rewatching "Breaking Bad," it's a steal. However, anyone who wants to do more on their slate should keep saving for an upgrade. It will be worth the wait and the extra cash.

Android Police

Good performance for the price

from Android Police

This is a budget tablet. And as such, I think it's OK – it's not super fast, it isn't going to replace a higher-end year-old tablet, and it's not breaking any records. What it is, though, is a good starter device for a kid, an affordable shared device for the family on a tight budget but still wants to have a tablet, or a decent reading companion (assuming you can get past the 1280x800 display. At $130, it makes it possible for almost anyone to own a tablet, which is a good thing...

There's no glaring flaw with the Acer Iconia One 7, and many of its shortcomings can be forgiven considering the low price.

There's no glaring flaw with the Acer Iconia One 7, and many of its shortcomings can be forgiven considering the low price. Still, the low-end Android market is as competitive as ever, and better, equally affordable options are in abundant supply. The Hisense Sero 7 Pro matches the One 7's price, but offers a better display, longer battery life, and HDMI out for mirroring media content on the big screen. The Nexus 7 is better still, but the $100 price gulf is substantial, especially in this price tier.
