Acer Iconia B1 Tablet Pros

Acer Iconia B1 tablet comes with 7 inch display and the display resolution is 1024 x 600 pixels. It weighs 340 grams. The design and the weight allow it to be carried to anywhere.  This budget tablet comes with connectivity ports including 3.5 mm headphone jack, micro SD card slot and others.  It is provided with 16 GB of internal storage and there is provision to expand the memory up to 32 GB.

Acer Iconia B1 is powered by 1.2 GHz dual core processor combined with 1 GB RAM which promises good performance.  It was launched for a price of £155 but in recent times it is available for only £97 which makes the tablet interesting. Small size, low price and the memory expansion facility are the advantages with the tablet.

 Acer Iconia B1 Tablet Cons

Acer Iconia B1 comes with bulky plastic chassis and may not appear attractive to some.  The front panel make the tablet look cheap.  Another big disappointment with the tablet is that it has no primary camera.  There is only small camera facing the front side which is suitable only for video chat but the self portraits taken using this camera give blurry images.  The display and the resolution are not up to the mark.  The viewing angles are narrow.  The operating system is only Android 4.1 which some customers can feel outdated.  There are no preloaded apps also.  The battery of the tablet gives very short life. The low resolution of the screen also disappoints the customers.
