To the end of the year 2015 there appeared plenty of new interesting tablet models. We have chosen three models by Acer, Asus and Dell, which in our opinion are the best in ratio of characteristics and price.
So, let’s see what latest tablets are worth your concern – Go to the next page!
Acer Iconia Tab A3-A20
Iconia equipped with Full-HD resolution display, has a thin body (about 9 mm), and made in a nice white color.
Viewing angles are wide. When you rotate the screen relatively to the straight line view, brightness is not as good, but the correctness of the colors is unchanged.
Tablet doesn`t bend when a moderate force is being used, despite the fact that only the rear part of it is made of aluminum; everything else is made of a tight plastic.
The tablet is very comfortable, in large part due to a fast processor and responsive screen.
Android 4.4, 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core processor MediaTek MT8127 and graphics accelerator Mali-450 MP4. We are not saying that these are top characteristics, but within the below-average price range, tablet`s performance is acceptable.
The tablet has two cameras (4 Mpxls and 1 Mpxls, with minimal resolution of 2560×1440 and 1280×720 points, respectively). Both the front and the main cameras are able to make quality photographs; especially in conditions with normal lighting and a stationary object. A variety of shooting modes, like panoramas or HDR, adds even more joy.
Average price – 160 $.
