Test: Acer Predator 8

The need for a game pad is still not obvious, but the Predator 8 has clearly biases.

Acer has kept on with mobile devices for a long time, but the core business lies in the personal computer world, and it is also from there you downloaded brand Predator. Predator series is aimed at gamers, which means that it focuses on the highest levels of performance, and a design adapted to the target group.

The computer world has a little slower paced than the mobile world, and even within the performance area for game geeks, a product that is new for much longer than it does for mobiles. Tablet Predator 8 was launched last autumn, therefore, but it took some time before now found also to Sweden.

In the mobile area is prestandarejset as I said still pretty quick, and although we’ve seen a trend towards a slowdown shows Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset 820 that there is still a substantial lift from the performance area.

Acer Predator 8 has not a Qualcomm chipset, but an Intel Atom chipset. Speaking to this autumn’s launch adds itself the in the same County as the other top models, but since then it has thus reached a new generation with substantial lift in performance, allowing Acer Predator 8 drops a bit in the right performance which should be one of the main selling points with the brand name Predator. Admittedly, we have not yet seen any Tablet using Snapdragon 820, but it’ll only be a matter of time.

In addition, if you are in here and compete on Apple’s core area. Is there any Apple successfully put the powder on it to bring up the performance of games and 3D graphics to Ipad series, and it has also received the game developers with itself in a way that Google can not use.

Well, let us assume that it is Android you want. There is not direct any device on the market right now that has significantly better performance, and although you can get larger and more high-definition screen is the screen on the Acer Predator 8 sharp and bright. 8-tumsformatet is not such a bad thing for the game. Bigger than a mobile screen, but small enough that you don’t need to have your device in your lap, or keep it with your other hand to tap on the screen.

If the format is good for gaming so the screen is a little less well suited for feature films. The screen is in 4:3 format instead of the more elongated 16:9, and when you watch the video, you get less screen real estate than you could expect from 8 inches.

The design is retrieved from Predator-computers and can best be described as aggressive. The sharp corners and angles do not just plate comfortable to hold, but you need not worry that it will slip out of the grip.

The protruding corners also contains a plate big balances, a speaker at each corner. I would not use them to listen to music with, but you should watch the video, or play games, they provide a speaker sound far above average, with a stereo effect that is noticeable.

Plate main Achilles heel is the battery life. If you are planning to see a movie or sit a longer sessions, you must ensure that the plate is loaded before and be prepared to download it again when it is ready, it is sufficient only for a few hours during intensive use.

In addition, you should make sure that it is the supplied charger. It is capable of charging plate with good effect, but when I try a randomly selected regular mobile phone chargers would have more hours to charge the battery than what it took to discharge it.

Another area where one can see that the plate is actually from last fall is the system version. Nothing wrong with Android 5.1, but power management features in Android 6 had come in handy here, and that’s the version we have the right to expect of new devices today.

Acer has made a lot of additions to the system, and some can be categorized as smart features while the other is more distinctly the bloatware. It features such as the ability to bring a plate by pressing the five fingers on the screen, or to split the screen and running two apps in parallel. There are also a number of third-party games, Acer and cloud services that Asphalt 8 and an app store from Gameloft. Cloud services for backup and image storage works well, but you have probably already such services from other providers where you already skuffat into your data.

Acer has a trick to take from the PC world to justify the Predator 8 as just game plate: Haptic feedback. It is usual to find in joysticks and the like to create the feeling of actually, for example driving a car on bumpy surfaces. This means that there are several trills in the unit which can provide various kinds of vibrations and combine them together to give different sensations.

In the game Asphalt 8 which is preinstalled and where you get a bundle of credits for in-app-purchase on the purchase with the plate you can feel how it works. Is not it a bit more dynamism in the vibrations than you’re used to, but it is quite subtle, and more a gimmick than a genuine sales argument.

Acer succeed thus not entirely convince that this is the plate you will choose if you play a lot of games. Android is simply a bit of standardized, and unlike the PC-world there is also not much hardware like keyboard or controller you can play around with.

It’s still a able flat in the smaller format, with a really good performance, and for features that require the speaker, you really sound. But battery life seems like an almost fatal constraint to a plate that is aimed at just such power-users that drains the battery really fast.

On The Other Hand
Erik M: a tablet that is used mainly for games (which the tablet doesn’t?) never gets better than the games that are available for it.What can speak for the Predator’s price, but the quality is low. The latest Ipad models, however, even the good speakers in each of the four corners, and above all much better both battery performance and apputbud.

Questions & answers
Has plate performance in tight?
It cannot be said, there is a better chipset today, but the place still in the top tier among tablets.

The plate becomes warm during use?
Yes it is getting it, but I’ve been through much worse and I think the are doing decently.

There are some fun accessories?
At the launch were promised that a series of matching accessories, but we have not found any of them in Sweden.

An option-Small Tablet
Huawei Mediapad M2 has a similar format and price, but can also serve as a telephone.
