Acer Iconia B1-720 7-inch Tablet

Acer Iconia B1-720 7-inch Tablet

The Iconia B1-720 is your family friend and is ideal for families opting for a second tablet. It combines a comfortable design with ideal touch and viewing experiences and helps ensure secure content, right at your fingertips.

The battery on the B1-720 lasts up to 5 hours between charges -- that's 1.4 times longer than the B1-710. It also comes in 2 sleek colours -- grey and red -- and is finished with silky anti-slip and a textured pattern.

Front-facing Speaker and Microphone

The Iconia B1-720 comes with a front-facing speaker and microphone. The speaker provides high volume and immersive sound for music and video enjoyment, while the microphone allows you to hear video calls clearly. It also helps enhance voice recognition.

Comfortable Feel -- Slim and Sleek

For a comfortable look and feel, the back cover has a silky anti-slip finish with a beautiful textured pattern. At just 10.7mm thick, the B1-720 is 14% (1.7 mm) thinner than its predecessor, allowing a more streamlined and sleek design.

10-point multi-touch

At Your Fingertips

One Glass Solution

One Glass Solution (OGS) is a method of touch-panel manufacturing that deposits an ITO (touch sensor) layer directly underneath the cover lens. This stack-up pattern creates a panel that is thinner, lighter and optically clearer (higher light transmission rate). The 4 layers, shown left, comprise:

  1. Device
  2. LCD panel
  3. Protective film
  4. Cover glass and ITO touch sensor
10-point Multi-touch

Take control of your tablet with the 10-point multi-touch panel. You can easily browse, search and zoom on your tablet, allowing an ideal touch experience for playing games and using apps.

How on earth can you buy this much technology for the price you pay? My only problem is learning how to use it to its full potential. Instructional documents are non existent, and even the manual on the Acer website is not particularly comprehensive. Trial and error has got me so far, but I think I will need to look for a book on tablets and/or Android operating systems to get to better grips with it. It is an attractive object, and easily portable, so should be more than adequate for non computer geeks. Highly satisfied, except for the absence of clear instructions.

having just got this tablet I have found it to be superb & quite fast on wifi I have down loaded loads of free apps & have added a 32gb micro sd card full of my films which I can watch when ever I like & change etc.
I only have one problem hence the 4 stars instead or 5 stars, in the adverts on here regarding the use of this tablet it says you can upgrade to kitkat.
I have gone into the system software upgrade & it just says your tablet is up to date, & will not upgrade to kitkat.
can anyone on here let me know if there is another way to upgrade this tablet to kitkat.
the acer website says nothing about upgrading to kitkat.
other than this I am pleased with my purchase.

update: I have now managed to upgrade to kitkat 4.4.2 so everything is now fine & it is a superb tablet for the money.

I only wanted a tablet to use as a secondary device to my main DT PC and this is great for that, i dont bother with music or movies - just mail, game companion apps, internet searches, FB etc and i have had no problems at all.

I bought this as a Christmas present so I had it for ages before it was opened. It is a lovely tablet with good graphics and it feels like a quality item. It gets used everyday for long periods of time and we have no negatives to say. I am very pleased with this purchase and the person I gave it to as a present is delighted with the quality and the style

This device is a close rival to the slightly more expensive Kindle Fire HD, with the added bonus that the Google Play Store is available. If you're serious about processing power, though, look for a quad core device like the Google Nexus 7 (quite a bit more expensive) or consider the Tesco Hudl (same price as the Kindle Fire but much better spec.). Having said that, the Acer copes fine with Asphalt 8 and similar power-hungry games. It's absolutely fine as a PC replacement for writing, reading, and Mahjong! I purchased a refurbished unit for half the price here, to carry around instead of taking my ultra-expensive 10" tablet out of the house regularly.

The device comes with lot of stock apps, which I think a novice would find really useful (if not slightly overwhelming). As a power user, this 'bloatware' is an irritation and I don't believe there's anything here that you can't get for free from the Play Store if you desire. Here's what's included:

- 'Standard' apps that come on most devices, mainly Google products - Chrome (unnecessary as standard Browser app is just fine), Calculator, Calendar, Camera (note only front-facing 'webcam' is available) , Clock, Gallery, Gmail, Email, Maps, Play Movies/TV, Google Search, Google Translate, People (contacts), Google Photos, YouTube.
- Acer apps - AcerCloud offers free storage and links easily to their other apps on the device: Music, Photo, Docs and Video. There's also a Remote Files app that needs your AcerCloud login to work. These appear on the Play Store as abDocs, abFiles, abMusic, abPhoto, abVideo.
- Music/audio stores/players - overkill here, with Google Play Music and 7digital both offering a store and player, plus the Acer Music app above. Also on the device is the Audible and TuneIn Radio.
