Acer Predator 8 video review: a failed game tablet

Vidéo : The Acer Predator 8 is a tablet for gamers. The idea is OK, but its futuristic design is so bad it will hurt your hands.

The Acer Predator 8 competes with the NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1. Unfortunately, it loses on almost every aspect : the tablet doesn't offer the same performances as the K1, its battery life is average.

Most importantly the design is a big failure : the 4 speakers located in the corners have pointy edges, which ruins the handling, It's supposed to feel good in the hand, thanks to rubber pads on the back, but the edges will hurt your palms. And quite frankly, it looks like an accessory from a futuristic alien race.

Which is too bad, as the screen looks pretty nice, and the 4 stereo speakers adjust to the tablet orientation, just like on the iPad Pro. If you're looking for a good Android tablet for playing games, the NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1 is a lot better, and even cheaper !
