  1. Acer Iconia B1 Review

    We had high hopes from the Acer Iconia B1. We hoped the performance and the build of the device were better. We liked the raw Android 4.1.2 experience and the touchscreen response as well as audio was nice. Games and apps too ran well. The device however has an underwhelming build, low battery life and didn’t play HD .MKV formats. SD AVI files however ran well. If you have a budget of Rs. 8,000, you can consider this device for the raw smooth Android experience. If you can extend you budget by Rs. 2,000, you will have quite a few better options at your disposal.
