Appearance

Acer Predator 8

The device looks very stylish and original. We immediately see that the device is designed for gamers. Unfortunately, the plastic and the metal is present only in the form of overlays on dynamics and a narrow strip in the back. I would like to see him in more. But the plastic is not as slippery as metal, and is not so strongly heated, which is important for powerful gadget. The Assembly is not perfect, but it is due to overly complex structure – in some places, joints slightly creaking.

Display and sound

Screen Acer Predator 8 leaves a dual impression. Here we use a very bright matrix, which displays information under the rays of the sunlight and protected good protective glass. But have a claim to the saturation of the picture – producer is too «pulled up» the contrast of the matrix and raised the color temperature. In the end, looks like a IPS AMOLED, and looks not very good. It is well suited to games, but here are the photos and movies on Acer Predator 8 do not look natural. But the sound did not elicit comments. Four dynamics of delight high volume and good volume. The headphones still at a high level.

Performance and games

Filling in the Acer Predator 8 is very powerful. Moreover, it is specially powerful for games. The installed processor operates at the level of the flagship tablets, overtaking them due to the graphics in mobile games. Even the original architecture of the processor is not affected when running applications. Everything just flies. And dual vibration feedback gives you a certain «wow-effect». To play on other tablets, after Acer Predator 8 will seem less fun and exciting. Emulation of games from PS One can also Acer Predator 8 on «cheers», fps never drops below 60 frames. In class «tablets to 10 inch» the hero of our competitors simply do not.

Camera and autonomy

Camera Acer Predator 8, as we have said, both pyatimegapikselnaya. And here they are more «for show». However, it is typical for most tablets. Only the front camera makes a good selfie, and when making video calls can be useful. More from Acer Predator 8 is not worth waiting.

Autonomy also cannot be called a strong point of our device. This is the fault of unbalanced processor. In the end, with average load the tablet is discharged in 4 hours. Resource-intensive games will drive you to the wall even faster. And this is a big problem. Because the tablet is designed for gamers. It is unlikely you will be happy with a discharged battery after two hours of gaming on the train. And charging from a PowerBank device is very slow.
