Playing with the tablet briefly out of the box, we’re digging the fluid and smooth movement it’s exhibiting right away. Moreover, we’re able to navigate across the homescreen in portrait with a live wallpaper activated with no detrimental levels of slowdown or lag being witnessed. Call it a relief or something, especially when other previous tablets exhibit choppy movements in portrait navigation, we’re undoubtedly enchanted to see it running at a good pace.
Running the Quadrant benchmark app on the ICONIA TAB A100, it’s able to muster up scores ranging between 1,788 and 2,075. Obviously, they’re good, but nothing great when you compare it to the 3,000 and above scores put up by the Samsung Galaxy S II. Nevertheless, they’re simply only benchmark scores – so it's up to the individual to realize if they're worth believing. Secondly, we’re able to see the tablet cough up a total score of 5,039 on the AnTutu benchmark test. Again, it’s an admirable score, but nothing mind-blowing.
In the short time playing around with the Acer ICONIA TAB A100, we’re content by its performance and execution so far, but of course, we’ll be handling it more extensively to better gauge its overall performance.
