A decent tablet for light users
Display and Configuration
The Acer Iconia One 8 B1-850 tab comes with an 8.0-inch HD (800 x 1280 pixels) IPS display with the pixel density of 189ppi which hampers readability under direct sunlight. The tablet is powered by a quad-core Cortex A53 processor with the clock speed of 1.3GHz. A 1GB RAM and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU is coupled with the processor for seamless multitasking and gaming experience. Android V5.1 (Lollipop) runs as the OS.
Camera and Battery
The tablet comes with a 5 Megapixels main camera which is further enhanced by features like face detection, geo-tagging, self timer and digital zoom. The front camera is a 2 Megapixels unit which helps in video calls and basic selfies in good lighting conditions. Both of these cameras suffers a bit in low lighting conditions. A 4,600mAh li-po battery supplies all the needed juice to this tablet which gives ample hours of talktime.
Storage and Connectivity
The Acer Iconia One 8 B1-850 packs 16GB of internal storage which provides great space to store all the important data. The memory can be further increased up to 64GB with the help of an external microSD card. The connectivity options are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, MicroUSB port, OTA sync and Tethering.
The tablet comes with decent specification, this should be good for people who are looking for tablets in a budget for watching movies and games. However, the absence of 3G and voice calling are major drawbacks.
