Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Iconia Tab W510


7.0
Like most Android tablets, the user interface is standard Android without customization.

6.5
The audio is bolstered by Dolby Mobile audio enhancement, which makes a noticeable difference, provided you tweak the bass and treble levels.

7.0
Performance is also brilliant, with the Tegra 3 chip purring inside, and breezing through apps, video, music and games without any worries.

6.8 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The screen is bright, clear and vivid and offers great viewing angles.
by TechRadar (Mar, 2011)
Images are bright, colours vivid and the viewing angles are excellent (something that the Advent Vega can't claim).
by TechRadar (Mar, 2011)
This lock-screen tweak is our first look at Acer's big ICS customisation job – the Acer Touch Ring.
by TechRadar (Jun, 2012)

Apps

Grab a Bluetooth mobile keyboard, and you're ready to tackle image transfer from your camera, MS Office documents, movie watching, web browsing and email.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
The front 1MP camera is good enough for video chat, and our Skype partners reported we were easy to understand and we looked passably sharp and colorful.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
SoundHound is great for tagging music.
by TechRadar (Jun, 2012)

Operating System

It's fast (aside from Android's occasional hiccups), more stable than other ICS tablets we've tested so far and it should be reasonably future proof.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
It's a hardware setup, with a few cutbacks admittedly, that rivals anything at the top of the Android pile – with the benchmark scores to back that up.
by TechRadar (Jun, 2012)
Apple's iOS isn't about to appear on a third party machine, but the imminent release of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) for tablets must surely have tempted Acer as well.
by TechRadar (Mar, 2011)

Operating system

Acer has had a good stab at the hardware, but much of this is completely undermined by its choice of OS.
by TechRadar (Mar, 2011)
While it lacks the straight compatibility that Microsoft Windows OS offers, it does potentially make for a more suited OS for day-to-day tasks.
by TechRadar (Mar, 2011)
The only app that could foreseeably get in the way is the McAfee Virus Scan Mobile monitor, which constantly lurked in the multitasking bar or scanned files when I worked with the tablet.
by The Verge (May, 2012)

Battery

Our tablet typically lasts 10 to 11 hours of actual use time on a charge, and that translates into several days on a charge with moderate use.
by MobileTechReview (Apr, 2012)
My everyday use is a bit on the heavy side — web browsing, streaming music for a bit of background noise, a few hours of gaming — but the tablet kept on chugging for just about 10 hours.
by The Verge (May, 2012)
It's fast, fluid, feels great, has good battery life, and Acer didn't overload it with custom crapware.
