Reviews Word on the street for the HP Slate 7 Extreme

All of this serves to clearly illustrate that a Nexus 7, with more storage, faster app loads, a better-looking screen, GPS, and the latest version of Android is only $30 away.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Don't get me wrong here – it's not a mind blowing difference and you still know you're looking at a 720p display on a seven inch screen, but there's definitely a noticeable improvement.

I personally prefer this stylus, as it just feels smoother and more comfortable across the display.
by Android Police (Jan, 2014)
Most new 7-inch tablets feature minimum screen resolutions of 1,280x800 pixels; however, HP went with a lower 1,024x600 resolution for the Slate 7.
by c|net (May, 2013)


The screen displays distractingly jaggy text in app icons and on Web pages, and both games and movies suffer from diminished clarity.
by c|net (May, 2013)
Having spent quite a bit of time comparing the two with various images, text, and games, I can without a doubt say that the Slate 7 Extreme has a better display than the EVGA model.
by Android Police (Jan, 2014)
Aside from the difference in software version, HP also decided to throw its own bundled apps onto the S7E – HP File Manager, ePrint, and Connected Photo – along with bundled software, like Box, Adobe Reader, and Skype.
by Android Police (Jan, 2014)


A silver embossed HP logo graces the gray rubberized back side, and in the top-left corner sits a 3-megapixel camera, sans LED flash.

At the top of the bezel is a low-quality VGA front-facing camera.
by c|net (May, 2013)
It should be the same panel, but HP has clearly done some things here to optimize the output – it's brighter, color reproduction is better on all accounts (whites still look slightly dingy, but definitely better than on the TN7), and even text looks darker and crisper.
by Android Police (Jan, 2014)


Ports and features have sensible placement, and the rubbery back and metal spine give it a durable feel.

On the bottom edge sits a Micro-USB port flanked by a narrow speaker grille on each side.
by c|net (May, 2013)
HP adds a Beats Audio music-enhancing feature (more below) that seems to make bass more prominent when listening through headphones or earbuds.
by c|net (May, 2013)


And while Beats Audio enhancements work great on your headphones, it does little to improve the tinniness of the tablet's speakers.

The top edge sees a headphone jack, microphone pinhole, and microSD slot gathered on the left, with the power/sleep button on the right.
