Price comparison

Design

1.weight

355g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

9.5mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

127.7mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

213.9mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

259.49cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.resolution

1280 x 800px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

189ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

8"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has an IPS screen
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has a touch screen
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.33GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

1GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

32GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Supports 64-bit
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
6.semiconductor size

22nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

0.3MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has a front camera
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
4.Can create panoramas in-camera
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

4550mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a battery level indicator
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.Supports widgets
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.
2.is a multi-user system
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
3.The browser has word wrap
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
4.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
5.Is free and open source
Acer Iconia One 8 B1-820 (Android 5.0 Lollipop)
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
6.Has offline voice recognition
