Android gaming tablet : Predator 8

Acer Predator 8 tablet was launched in September 2015. The tablet comes with a 8.00-inch display with a resolution of 1900 pixels by 1200 pixels
The Acer Predator 8 is powered by Intel Atom X7 processor and it comes with 2GB of RAM. The tablet packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Acer Predator 8 packs a 5-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 1.92-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The Acer Predator 8 runs Android 5.1.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth. Sensors on the tablet include Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.

Software and Performance
The Predator runs a stock version of Android 5.1 Lollipop, so if you're already an Android user, you know exactly what you're getting. Out of the box, the 32GB tablet has 21.6GB of available storage, which you can easily expand via the microSD slot. There are a number of pre installed games, like the aforementioned Asphalt 8 as well as Clash of Kings, along with apps like Dropbox. Acer includes a bit of bloatware, like Acer Caring (a diagnostics app) and Acer Suggests (an app that helps you find other tablet-optimized apps), but they can be uninstalled to bring you back to a stock Android experience.
That said, you should keep in mind that Android isn't exactly a haven for tablet games. Yes, there are plenty of tablet-optimized games available, but you'll still encounter games meant for smaller phone screens that are simply scaled up to tablet size, so this doesn't make for optimal visuals.

The tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor that clocks in at 1.6GHz, with 2GB of RAM. It scored an impressive 73,020 on the AnTuTu benchmark, which tests overall performance. This is stronger than the Galaxy Tab S2 (52,137) and the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 (45,891), though due in part to the Predator's lower screen resolution; the other two tablets have to render graphics at 2,048 by 1,536.
Game performance was extremely smooth in testing.  The graphics-intensive Asphalt 8: Airborne was fluid, and the visuals really pop thanks to the integrated Intel graphics chip. I played a little bit of Hello Kitty CafĂ© to take a break from the intensity of Asphalt, and as you can imagine, gameplay was just fine.
The Predator 8 has two cameras: The 5-megapixel rear-facing camera takes a few seconds to lock focus, and shots are generally pretty grainy. The 2-MP front-facing camera is good enough for video calls, not much else. That said, you're probably not buying this tablet, or any tablet for that matter, for its cameras.
