The Acer Iconia Tab 8 A1-840 is an Android tablet that made its market debut in the fall of 2014. Its release was met with praise for an impressive build and high-quality aluminum finish. Reviewers couldn’t stop lauding its sharp Full-HD LCD 8-inch display as well as the reliable performance offered by a very capable Intel Atom CPU and 2GB of RAM. Its battery life was also commended by many, but the same can’t be said about the cameras or the low 9GB of internal storage space available. Be that as it may, the Iconia Tab 8 A1-840 has more than enough positive features that help it to leave a very good overall impression.
