Acer Iconia A1-811 and GOCLEVER ARIES 785 – two tablets with almost identical specifications identical diagonal, resolution of approximately the same functionality … Is the – apparently – the same unit may be something different? We pay attention to the most important aspects of everyday use and try to answer the big question – which one would be better for you?
Given the objective of the arena – a direct comparison of the two 7.85-inch tablet with built-in 3G modem – we will look at every aspect of what we touched upon in individual tests. For direct duel becomes Acer Iconia A1-811 and GOCLEVER ARIES 785 There are maybe the unit with the same price cap as the Acer costs around $ 1,000, and GOCLEVER 350 gold less, but are characterized by a very similar technical specifications. What makes both of these tablets? What are similar, and where much other? The equipment we will evaluate in five categories:
- Design and ergonomics;
In each category, you can get from one to five points. Before we begin, let us remember, however, profiles of each candidate.
Acer Iconia A1-811
GOCLEVER ARIES 785
Construction and Ergonomics
Prefer plastic tablet, but better made, or aluminum, but with a slightly lower standard?
Acer Iconia A1-811 tablet is entirely plastic. The device does not impress prestige, is a solidly made and certainly does not fall apart at the first thought of falling. The equipment measures 209 x 146 x 11 millimeters and weighs 430 grams, it is neither a value too high nor particularly low. MicroSD card slot and SIM are on top, but there is no fear of putting forward their case. [Nggallery id = 456 template = techmaniak] GOCLEVER but in the same dimensions wins. 8 millimeters thick and weighs about 60 grams less (and the same diagonal screen) might suggest that the tablet is more modern in design. Of course, a separate issue is the capacity and size of the battery, but more on that later. ARIES 785 is also a large part of the tablet in aluminum, although combining the plastic on the rear panel, leave much to be desired, and are noticeably uneven and bend under pressure. MicroSD card slot and SIM locked behind plastic flaps.
EVALUATION: Construction and Ergonomics
Acer performed better, but GOCLEVER is more convenient because of the smaller size and the included carrying case. There is no way any of the tablets assessed differently, in the section dedicated to the construction, appearance and ergonomics are we to draw.

Both tablets have a 7.85-inch IPS screen with good, very similar viewing angles and color reproduction similar quality. Iconii image may seem slightly more reddish, slightly warm. Resolution Acerze and ARIESie is identical – is 1024 x 768 pixels.By means of calculating the number of candelas per square meter, we can say that the brightness maximum are able to offer individual tablets. In a dimly lit room enough even such small amounts as 120-150 cd/m2. The lighter areas will need to be a minimum of 200 candelas per square meter. Outside, in bright sunlight, you will need to use your tablet, which exceed 350 cd/m2 brightness. All conditions are met by only GOCLEVER, neither one nor the other tablet can not but commend particularly sophisticated anti-reflective coating. [Test slug = "screen-battery" virtual = "TEST_JASNOSC_AKU" product_id = "19454.19412"] ARIES 785 has to offer a brightness of 411 cd/m2 (minimum: 54 cd/m2), while the Acer monitor to highlight the exceeding 271 cd/m2 (minimum: 33 cd/m2). [Test slug = "screen-battery" virtual = "TEST_NIEROWNOMIERNOSC_AKU" product_id = "19454.19412"] Uneven illumination allows you to specify that, where the LEDs harder, and where less. Carrying out the 9-point measurement, we found that both products are characterized by irregularity limit (8.1% for Acer and 12% for tablet GOCLEVER), which does not affect the feelings of Use.
In this section wins GOCLEVER – the tablet with a modem brightness is very important, because only the high rate allows for efficient use of the mobile Internet Options. [Boiling name = "DISPLAY"] ACER ICONIA A1-811 | 3.0 | GOCLEVER ARIES 785 | 3.5 | [/ temperature]
Acer included at the beginning of a distinct advantage over Aries – no HDMI with which easily send an image to a larger monitor. But that external differences to an end, in both cases we find Bluetooth, Micro USB slot and microSD card slot. From the USB OTG tablets both boast high compatibility, but only Iconii A1-811 was able to recognize the media with NTFS partitions. None of the tablet reads the content of external drives without power, but it will be able to work with USB hubs (active and passive), pendrives with FAT32 drives mice or self-powered. [Test slug = "OTG" format = "table" product_id = "19454.19412"] GOCLEVER ARIES 785 offers a 2-megapixel main camera, while in Iconii A1-811 introduced a matrix with a resolution of 5 megapixels with autofocus clearly more efficient. From the front, and one, and one tablet have a 0.3-megapixel sensor. In Acerze GPS seems to work a little faster, but this difference is not significant. 3G modem, but, it works the same way (3G/HSPA + 900/2100 MHz) in one and the other device, effectively connecting to different networks – including a Aero2. The quality of calls over Wi-Fi are both tablets almost identical, the differences seen in the graph can be classified as acceptable by the so-called scale. measurement error. The value fit for comfortable use networks to recognize the scale of -70 dBm. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "negative" product_id = "19412.19454"] Both Acer and GOCLEVER based on disk with a capacity of 8 GB, of which the user is about 5 gigabytes. The role of internal memory in both cases full turn – respectively – 0.91 and 0.98 GB. We also have expandable memory with microSD cards up to 32 GB. Iconia gets here, but less for the lack of portability of some applications.

Tablets testing during video calls on Skype, films, using the Internet via Wi-Fi and 3G. The screens on both devices set the brightness of the white equal to 120 cd/m2, which resulted in authoritative and comparable results. The last section is devoted to energy replenishment time using the supplied charger. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "video-wifi-off, Internet-wifi, internet-3g-wifi communicator, load-ac" product_id = "19454.19412"]
In both cases, the operating times of the distance from the wall is good, but the Acer Iconia A1-811 comes to the clear lead when using Wi-Fi, a little less when surfing using 3G modem. The other sections are close to each other. [Boiling name = "BATTERY"] ACER ICONIA A1-811 | 4.5 | GOCLEVER ARIES 785 | 4.25 | [/ temperature]
The same system, similar optimization
Tablets are under the control of the same chipset – MediaTek MT8389, based on a four-core processor ARM Cortex-A7 with frequency of 1.2 GHz and a PowerVR SGX544 graphics. Active support gigabyte of RAM for smooth working Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. In any case, you can not complain about the speed of the scroll desktops, run more applications or web browsers work (which include testing synthetic prove located below). There is a chart-topping systems and are also slightly weaker than comparably priced Rockchipów RK3188. However, media library can boast of good energy efficiency and sustainability work, which in the world of low-cost Android tablet may be crucial. Interestingly, the processor in Acerze obtained in Quadrant benchmark score almost 20 percent higher, the application examines the overall performance of the system (device), so we consider it to be the most important. ARIES 785, in turn, could boast a slightly better results in GFXBenchu. Results are derived, respectively, of the Quadrant Pro, AnTuTu (version 4), 3DMark, An3DBenchXL and GFXBencha. At the end you will find a summary of the performance of the two most popular browsers – Photo and Chrome. If somewhere lacks a particular outcome, this means that the tablet was not able to complete the test.

Neither Acer nor GOCLEVER also do not support DTS audio, which checked with the MX Player with the latest codecs package. Starting 720p clips goes without a problem in any case.

[Temperatura_arena] As you can see, in the evaluation of the overall small advantage noted on the side of the Acer Iconia A1-811. Tablet turned out to be better equipped – it has HDMI, it also has a better camera. There is no way the Taiwanese brand product does not appreciate a great time for battery life – there are perhaps a lot better than those recorded by the tablet GOCLEVER, but still. Last Iconia is a distinctive feature of the overall performance, which determines the Quadrant Pro as ten percent higher than that of the cheaper product. GOCLEVER ARIES 785 is mainly cheaper, which explains such no HDMI. It's also much lighter equipment with TVs, which can not be overlooked in the world of tablets with 3G modems, but the graphics card, which as indicated by the synthetic tests doing slightly better than the twin module Acerze. GOCLEVER also adds useful in box case with stand – trying to use the same accessory in Iconii will have to purchase them on their own. We suspect that both of these devices will be satisfied. Those who seek above all we can clear the screen and ARIES-785 in good conscience recommend, if you want a little while longer operating time on battery power, and a little higher overall performance, reach for the Acer tablet.
