    A decent tablet for £130, 23 July 2013

    Originally purchased this due to the death of my previous tablet and needed something cheap to tide me over the tail end of my degree.

    It has to be said for £130 this is a decent tablet. Often compared to the nexus 7, with the subsequent statement that the nexus is a better device, and this is certainly true. But at the time of writing the nexus was £50 more, a substantial price difference for a £130 device. And so corners have been cut. The screen is nowhere near as sharp, yet the screen is perfectly fine for reading and watching movies, and so it is not something I would see as a ‘problem’. The design is nice the speakers come with beats audio too but don’t let that be the selling point as they’re still no great speakers, you’ll want to plug it in to something a little bit better if you want good sound. This has the most welcome addition of an SD card slot which allows a (current) maximum upgrade of 32gb which is always welcome.

    This comes with android 4.1 and it looks pretty unadulterated which is nice as a simple android interface can be updated easier in the future if HP choose to go down that route. Android 4.1 is really the reason anyone would buy this, as android has really matured and runs really nicely on this device especially with the thousands of apps to customise and accessories your tablet.
    Thee cameras are not great, I’d use your phone or a camera for any snaps of decent quality, but it is capable of front and rear camera shots if the occasion ever does call such as Skype.

    The only major downfall of this whole device (as I have been trying to get across the decent if not amazing character of this tablet) is the battery life. Here it falls down a little. Even on standby it can die pretty quickly. I fully charged it, didn’t do anything but leave it on standby for 2 and a half days and it was on 8%. My nexus 4 would last double that if it was just sitting there doing northing. So don’t travel without a cable if you’re going away for more than a day. Oh and WiFi can be a pain, you might need to change your WiFi frequency on your router and the 5g band isn’t recognised, non of which is idea, a shame.

    For the price, I’d buy it again, there is little as good at this price range from a decent well know manufacturer like HP. The kindle fire is a hugely locked down android and so it isn’t worth comparing as the operating systems really are very different.

    So if the ceiling is set at £130, go for it. If you have £170 go buy a nexus.

    Amazing!, 10 Sept. 2013
    Aston Dorsett (United Kingdom) –

    This tablet is great for £99.

    I test various tablets and recently this was the latest one given to me to check out.

    This tablet runs really smoothly.

    I have tested it with games that the tablet should be able to cope with. It passed all like the wind. The 3 mp camera takes decent photos. However, don’t bother trying in a dark place unless you carry a torch around with you.

    Many customers complain the screen looks grainy. No its not so do not listen. Its the type of screen which is different and more efficient than the standard LCD.

    I recommend this product. It’s great value for its price.
