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 respo... Full review
I understand the the phone costs the same as a weekly grocery shop for a family of four but I would not recommend it for anyone. There are more than a billion people in the world who have a Facebook account and everyone takes pictures on their phone. Th Liquid M220 might allow you to browse your timeline but it will struggle when it comes to uploading your (hazy) photos there. You are better off taking yourself to CEX and buying a second-hand Motorola Moto G or even an iPhone 4 for £95. And if it is a Windows phone you truly want, a Microsoft 535 with 8GB internal storage will set you... Full review
As long as you never lose sight of what the Acer Liquid M220 is supposed to be – an affordable, entry-level smartphone – you’ll likely be satisfied with it. For what it is, Acer’s first US smartphone offering impresses. It has great battery life and offers all of the same functionality of other Windows Phone 8.1 devices (whether or not this appeals to you is another issue all together), just for a much lower price point.
Sure, the lowered cost means modest specs and a hit to its display quality, but what the Liquid M220 lacks in flair it makes up for... Full review
Experience shows that expectations have to be reduced slightly in relatively inexpensive tablets. Acer's Iconia One 8 is no exception and has only a 720p screen, a not entirely stable plastic casing with some sharp edges, and slightly too quiet speakers. The variety of adware also mars the impression the same as the clear performance loss after a prolonged load for which we deducted a point in the rating.
Acer particularly emphasizes the touchscreen, which is in fact quite suitable for sketching because it implements inputs very accurately. The low black level and a rather color... Full review
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... Full review
