hp slate 7

 The Slate 7’s no-frills 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and 1GB of RAM put in a decent effort — in theory. According to our benchmark tests, the Slate 7 scored within a reasonable distance from its current competitors, but the numbers don’t paint the most accurate picture.

The good: The HP Slate 7 is a durable 7-inch tablet, includes an expandable storage option, and has good gaming performance. Beats Audio effectively enhances bass-heavy music through headphones or earbuds.

The bad: The screen’s resolution is eye-squintingly low, large apps take a long time to load, and its cameras produce washed-out, dull-looking shots. Also, there’s no GPS, and Android 4.1.1 can feel a bit archaic compared with newer versions of the OS.

The bottom line: The HP Slate 7 strips out way too much to make its low price, and what’s left can’t compare to the Nexus 7’s offerings.


The Slate 7’s battery life isn’t exactly mind-blowing — the tablet comes equipped with a 3,500mAh lithium polymer battery that’s almost enough to survive an entire day of light usage.

For a casual user, the Slate 7 might be a good enough tablet, but at this price, good enough just doesn’t cut it. Simply put, the display is disappointing, even for a budget product, and the specs prove better in theory than in practice.
