The 1280 x 800 display means text appears sharp and clear, and with suitable font size tools, even those with poorer eyesight should be able read easily on the tablet.

The smooth texture on its back combined with its trim size and light weight made the Slate 7 Extreme cozy to hold in either one or both hands.
