Tremendously powered Tablet flavoured with Jelly Bean
HP Slate-7 tablet sports a 7-inch HFFS display and has a display resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system and has got itself powered with a 1.6GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor assisted by 1GB of RAM.
The Slate-7 tablet from HP packs a 3MP rear camera along with a VGA front-facing camera. It houses an internal memory of 8GB along with a Micro SD Slot for memory expansion via Micro SD card.
HP Slate-7 is built especially for those who desire to flaunt their device exhibiting the most technologically advanced features and thus, is quite capable of giving a tough competition to the HCL Me Y3 which is available at a higher price and has Dual-SIM capabilities. However, it lacks a Jelly Bean OS.
A titan of Silicon Valley, HP has seen more than its fair share of struggles over the past few years. The company long has grappled with the tablet formula, though often at the mercy of whatever Microsoft pushed down from Redmond. They've launched several Windows XP and Windows 7 convertible tablets, and most recently launched a pair of Windows 8-powered tablets. But they've all been more PC than mobile device. The most spectacular of HP&...
Pros: The Slate 7 ships with nearly "stock" Android 4.1.1 and offers (in theory) better sound quality thanks to Beats Audio integration. Additionally, the tablet is well put together, with a metal band around the edges and a nice soft-touch backing.
Cons: But for all the goodness that comes with practically unadulterated Android, the tablet is a massive letdown. The screen is just awful. And so are the speakers. And the cameras. And despite internals that should compare favorably to older tablets like the
Verdict: At $169.99, the HP Slate 7 seems like it could be a good deal near the bottom of the Android tablet scene. But as decent as the implementation of vanilla Android coupled with Beats Audio should be, the experience is compromised from the start an expe...
Overall: First let me tell you the accessories you will be getting out of box .
The tab itself and the micro USB charger with US Pin. No data cable , earphone is available. You can use any other micro usb charger to charge this tab. Or you have to buy some converter/spiker to use the charger that comes within the box.
The pros about the Tab, it has very good display when you compare it to other tabs in this price range. you will get 5.8 gb of internal storage and it does support micro sd card. I have found the normal tasks, net surfing very smooth, no lag at all. And the normal games run very fine in this tab. Didn't run heavy games on this, I use iPad Mini for that.
Now cons, the speaker volume is very low, the usb and bluetooth connections are of older versions, hence the are very much slow. The main camera quality is not that great(though they are providing front facing camera at this price range which I feel is great)
Now the verdict, Obviously I didnt expect it to perform like ipad and all, But it fulfilled all my expectations except the speaker volume, for which I am deducting one star :)
I would not suggest it for heavy users, this is more apt for our parents or students. I bought this for my mother and she is quite happy with it ...
