What the Critics Are Saying...


Digital Versus

The Acer Iconia A3-A10 is a middling tablet with middling finish and middling performance that don't necessarily ruin the experience, but do properly reflect what it is: an entry-level product wandering aimlessly between two generations.

- Axel Mendy / Romain Thuret, Digital Versus
PhoneArena

The Acer Iconia Tab A3 is a well balanced tablet for its modest price tag. Its solid build is not going to wow you with premium materials, but is ergonomic to handle, and the chipset chosen is not a speed demon, but does its job fine, decoding every high-res video thrown at it. Our only major gripe...

The Acer Iconia Tab A3 is a well balanced tablet for its modest price tag. Its solid build is not going to wow you with premium materials, but is ergonomic to handle, and the chipset chosen is not a speed demon, but does its job fine, decoding every high-res video thrown at it. Our only major gripe is with the screen resolution, which looks rather aging on a 10” tablet this season.
