The following is an extract of an Acer A1-810 tablet’s concise review/comment from the web.

The A1-810 was launched and put on the market in May 2013.
Since then, several firmware updates were implemented by Acer to improve on its system.
The Acer A1-810 was launched with Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS.

In July this year (2014) Acer pushed out a major firmware update for the tablet to be placed on KitKat 4.4.2 finally.
With this system OS update, Acer A1-810 users would received a value added feature that is embedded deep within the operating system:  Android ART runtime!

Be reminded that the Android Runtime (ART) feature remains a default system process runtime for the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop so far. Though it can be selected as an option for devices on the KitKat 4.4 but many OEM manufacturers choose to block out the ART from users. It could be that manufacturers feel that it might not run properly on KitKat OS versions for many apps.

However, Acer has chosen to implement the choice of ART option on the KitKat update on its Acer A1-810 tablets. And the result is that ART works extremely well on the tablet without problem. Acer engineers must have worked very hard on it to ensure such a great software optimization.

How do users of Acer A1-810 turn on the ART option?
First thing first, go to Setting ~ About Tablet to tap numerous times on Build Number to activate the otherwise hidden Developer Options.
Then proceed to Select Runtime (tap on ART) within the Developer Options and the system will reboot itself (also to update all apps). There you go. The ART (Android Runtime mode) will be activated.

My experience of using the ART on Acer A1-810 has been very positive. Apps and system UI perform in smooth and fluid manner.
Antutu and Quadrant benchmarks also clearly indicate big improvement in overall system efficiency.

In addition to using ART Android runtime, users should also download the latest Google Now Launcher (as follows) to further expend their Android experience.
