Acer Iconia Tab A110 nearly looks like the more popular Google Nexus 7. But upon closer inspection, the Tab A110 is noticeably heavier and thicker. The device has reasonable build quality and it looks generally robust, but some users may not be too fond of the plasticky feel and boring slab-like design.
The microSD card slot is poorly designed and it looks like an unsightly gaping hole. Acer previously told us that the display will have a glass layer, but it’s actually made of plastic. There should be no performance issue, as the Tab A110 also uses quad-core Tegra 3 CPU and 1GB of RAM. Tests using various benchmarking materials show that the tablet is generally on par with the Nexus 7.
Unfortunately, the 8GB of onboard storage looks paltry, while Nexus 7 16GB and 32GB are already available. Tab A110’s display falls massively short when compared to the Nexus 7, with its 1024 x 600 pixels resolution, which is equal to 170ppi of pixel density. Viewing angles are nowhere near being exceptional and the display surface is set a bit too deep into the device.
