Let’s see Acer Aspire Switch 10E review below; the tablet is aimed to young generation which also available in a variety of color options.
Talking about the design, the Switch 10E almost looks exactly same as any other 10-inch tablet. However, unlike other manufacturers, Acer decided to launch with various color options. Thus, this tablet will be available in six colors such as sky blue, orange, pink, purple, as well as in standard gray and white. Now we have a white color option here.
The back cover of this tablet is made of ordinary plastic, stylized fabric. It feels like something between a hard fabric and paper. In terms of manipulation, holding the tablet in the hands is very comfortable and easy.
On the left side a power button, volume keys and a Windows function key. The keys are short and a little bit harder, to push it, we have to make little effort. On the right side all the connectors and ports such as microphone, memory card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro-HDMI and microUSB ports.
At the bottom you can see the charger pin and two hinge for the keyboard dock. Although the weight is 630 grams can not be called a small device, but we did not feel much discomfort while holding it with both hands, while the thickness of device around 11 mm.
The screen parameters of the 10E is not much impressive, but do not rush to jump into any conclusions. Let’s start with the good, it has a 10.1-inch IPS display with HD (1280×800 pixels) resolution, it has an oleophobic coating, and it is very cool, the finger slides easily on the display surface, and remove the scratches and fingerprints is much easier.
It is also equipped with a good anti-reflective screen filter. Of course, the display is almost completely fades in direct sunlight, but if you work indoors or outdoors in less sunlight, the image can be clearly visible. In addition, there is no problem with Windows icons, all the elements are large enough with HD-resolution.
Now reveal some cons like comparing some of same price segment tablet devices, lower resolution, again the low brightness and quite average viewing angles.
Acer Aspire Switch 10E tablet comes with a detachable keyboard. It uses magnet technology, at the lower end, when you hold the tablet to the keyboard, it is automatically pulled, but sometimes the magnets occasionally missed it. The structure itself is very secure, to detach tablet is very easy, but you need to make a little effort.
In general, Switch 10E has four different usage modes such as tablet, laptop, tent and stand modes. If you are using any other mode except “laptop”, the keypad is automatically disabled in this case, therefore, no need to worry about accidentally pressed. In laptop mode, the keyboard slightly raised, and it is very nice, typing becomes much easier.
The touchpad is also quite large and slightly elongated in width. It has a smooth surface, the finger slides perfectly on it. If we talk about the shortcomings, the lack of an additional battery in the docking station, and only one USB-port.
The tablet runs on Windows 10, all nice features were provided with a free annual subscription to Microsoft Office. New system has become much easier, both in general and in terms of using its touch interface. You will be comfortably used even in a desktop mode, all the elements are now quite large.
