Acer Predator 8 Philippines: Price, Specs, and Review

Acer Predator 8: The ultimate gaming tablet

The Acer Predator 8 is a gaming tablet for that comes with impressive features including a 4420mAh battery capacity, 8-inch display with 1920x1200p resolution, and a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. It is the ideal tablet for gaming, as it can run games smoothly and make them look great, thanks to its bright and clear display that improves graphical performance. Here is a rundown of the Acer Predator 8 specs and features.

Premium build and feel

The Acer Predator 8 comes with a plastic body that is topped with red, silver, and black hues. The back and front edges have a sheet-metal finish that feels nice to the touch. On the front, you will find the 8-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display and the 2MP front camera that offers decent shots for your social networks. On the back, you will get access to the 5MP camera and the two grips that offer the vibration feedback which Acer calls the TacSense. This feedback buzz when gaming is caused by two motors in the device, which provide vibration similar to phones.

High-quality display

The 8-inch, 1920x1200p display is vibrant enough for playing mobile games and watching movies. With the MediaMaster app onboard, you can configure the display levels easily. When playing games in FHD resolution, the display on the Acer Predator 8 does the job. While the visuals look subpar in QHD, the Predator 8 has a resolution similar to the Nvidia Shield. You won’t get undefined or blurry visuals and you will get maximum brightness that is just right for your eyes.

Neat interface

The Acer Predator 8 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop that offers a neat interface with plenty of options that enable you to customize the home screen. This will save you the hassle of rooting your device or diving deeply into the system settings.

Satisfactory Performance

The Acer Predator 8 houses a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz which delivers a satisfactory performance when running apps and graphics-intensive games without any hiccups or slowdowns. And with the device’s 2GB RAM, you can look forward to a seamless switching in between a few apps and smoothly running mobile games.

A decent set of cameras

Acer equipped a 5MP sensor on the back of the Predator 8, which offers decent images in optimal lighting conditions. The front camera also has a 2MP resolution and captures videos in 1080p at 30fps.

Impressive battery life

The Acer Predator 8 houses a 4420 mAh battery capacity which can last up to 8.5 hours on moderate use. It will last longer on minimal use of various smartphone functions including browsing, calling, messaging, gaming, picture-taking, and opening documents.

Acer Predator 8 Price Philippines

As of writing, the Acer Predator 8 retails at around PHP 13,000. With this affordable gaming tablet, expect a range of great features as already mentioned above.
