Using the tablet outdoors is possible as its screen has a decent brightness output, but you'll have to cover it with your hand when the sun is shining right at it.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


You only get sliders for brightness, contrast, and exposure adjustments, as well as a timer and a resolution setting.

On the other hand, its viewing angles and color accuracy are decent – likely superior to what you'd get out of a basic notebook/netbook, for that matter.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
If you'll be using the touchscreen interface to show off your sketches and designs to someone, taking advantage of this feature is recommended.

Operating System

The OS is compatible with a vast array of legacy Windows applications, which is a huge benefit.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
It will last for about 9 hours on a single charge – almost as much as an iPad or a high-end Android slate.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
But while it is an okay Windows 8 tablet, we can't really recommend it as a notebook/netbook replacement.

Operating system

Stability improved, however, after we installed a software update provided by Acer.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
Naturally, the software merges whatever audio files you have stored in the Music folder with your audio library.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
Conclusion: The Acer Iconia W511 is clearly aimed at tablet buyers on a tight budget, or simply people who aren't willing to spend too much on a Windows 8 hybrid device.

Instead, there's a microUSB port that you plug a special adapter cable (included in the set) into, and then you can hook up USB devices to the Iconia 511.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
You can even charge a smartphone in case you have its USB cable handy, which is neat.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
You can connect all kinds of peripherals to them, such as thumb drives, a mouse, or a USB hub.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)


Overall, the music player works, but we're not too happy with it as it lacks in features.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
That's why all your new emails and messages are synced and waiting as soon as you press that “On” button.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2013)
For some people, that will do just fine, but storing music, movies, or other large files on the device might be a problem.
