HP Slate 7 review: HP's budget Android tablet is less of a hit, more of a miss

Engadget
3 July 2013
  • Summary: 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. It simply can't hold a candle to devices currently (or soon to be) on the market. If this tablet were $40 cheaper, our verdict might be more generous, but as it stands, it's overpriced for the quality you get.
  • Pros: Sturdy design, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Washed-out, low-res display, Latency and stuttering during routine tasks, Disappointing battery life

HP Slate 7 Review

Digitaltrends
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. The HP Slate 7 is *just* on the wrong side of that threshold because of its display. It’s one of the most important elements of a tablet.
  • 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

  • Summary: We like some aspects of the HP Slate 7, but we'd like the tablet a lot more if it cost less. On the plus side, this $169 device has a premium design, long battery life, a microSD Card expansion and Beats Audio. The Slate 7 also performs fairly well with its dual-core processor. However, the low 1024 x 600-pixel screen resolution pales in comparison to the 1280 x 800 display on the $149 Hisense Sero 7 Pro, which also boasts a speedier quad-core CPU.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Beats Audio built-in, microSD Card slot, Long battery life
  • Cons: Low-resolution display, Runs older Android 4.1, Not as fast as competing tablets, Lackluster cameras

The HP Slate 7 is undone by missing features and a dull screen

CNET
5 February 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Cons: 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.

  • Excerpt: It's tough for a PC vendor to transition to the tablet business. At the low end, they need to compete against the Kindle Fire, which is supported by Amazon's store, and the Google Nexus 7. The new HP Slate 7 is HP's first attempt at an Android based device and they chose to go for the low end. At $170, "affordable" is its main strength, but reviewers concluded that they shaved off too much build quality and features in their effort to hit that price.
  • Pros: Low price makes it a good choice for the kids
  • Cons: Very poor display, Short battery life, Bad camera
