HP Slate 7 hands-on review: welcome to the party [MWC]

8 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The HP Slate 7 does just enough to differentiate itself from the competition because of the cameras and Beats Audio support. But it isn’t a hugely impressive tablet. While it’s good enough for very basic pootling about in Android, using email and browsing the web, it’s not the tablet you want if you...

26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: While the announcement of the Galaxy S4 from Samsung was a huge deal at MWC, we can’t help feel more excited about the release of the HP 7 Slate, but only because the tablet was there to be touched.

HP Slate 7 Review

Expert Review

11 July 2013
  • Conclusion: We like the 8GB Slate 7 at its current price point of $139.99 (with the instant rebate), but we’d like it a lot more at $99, which is where the market for entry-level 7-inchers is headed. And that’s where we think the Slate 7 belongs.
  • Pros: Storage is expandable via MicroSD card, Attractive, sturdy design, Pricing is competitive so long as $30 instant rebate holds
  • Cons: Relatively low-resolution display, No GPS support or gyroscope sensor, No HDMI-out

Review HP Slate 7 Tablet

30 June 2013
  • Summary: Affordable entertainer. HP's seven-inch Slate 7 tablet brags to be an able companion for all multimedia situations and is partly available for far below 150 Euros (~$195) despite this versatility claim. We took the manufacturer at its word and tested the Slate 7's capabilities in our test course.
  • Pros: Solid casing, Bright screen, High viewing angle stability, Latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version, Decent application and gaming performance, Low purchase price, The good performance despite the budget price. The Rockchip RK3066 SoC delivers enough power for all requirements placed on games and apps.
  • Cons: No GPS module, Awful webcam, Weak primary camera, 12 month warranty, A tablet that boasts multimedia use should feature better camera modules. The webcam is virtually useless although the 3 megapixel primary camera shoots feasible pictures.

HP Slate 7 Review

24 June 2013
  • Conclusion: There aren’t many Android tablets under $200 worth your time. There’s a certain threshold to inexpensive slates – stay above it and value balances out with price and performance, dip below and you might as well have just flushed that money down a toilet.
  • Pros: Runs Android 4.1, Decent performance
  • Cons: Poor quality display, Some OS elements look odd, Mediocre battery life, Below-average camera

HP Slate 7 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
7 June 2013
  • Summary: The Slate 7 is also priced too closely to the $199 Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD, which offer sharper displays and better performance. Another option is the $99 Hisense Sero 7 LT -- which has half as much storage as the HP (4GB vs. 8GB), but otherwise similar specs -- for $70 less.
