The Acer Iconia B1 is a good solution for the user who is looking for a small, inexpensive tablet to browse the web, access social networks, read emails, etc. Due to its low cost, it is also a good option for kids.

It is easy to carry, light, and comfortable to use.

In order to achieve a low price tag, the manufacturer chose to remove some features (such as the frontal camera), instead of using low-quality components. Well, the screen has a strange behavior when looked at from the right side, but we were not expecting a top-shelf screen in this gadget.
