HP Slate8 Pro Review: So Close, Yet So Far

 

I want to love this tablet for several reasons, but for each positive quality it possesses, there's an equally as destructive flaw. The size is nigh perfect, and the 4:3 aspect ration, while initially different, is pretty fantastic. The display is...

HP Slate 8 Pro

 

The HP Slate 8 Pro treads directly on iPad Mini territory with its 8-inch 4:3 aspect ratio display. When compared with the original iPad Mini, the Slate 8 Pro's IPS screen holds up rather well. It has a resolution of 1600x1200 pixels, which results in...

Fast and smooth performance, Sharp and vivid display, Excellent battery life

Poor quality front camera, Issues with touch sensitivity

HP Slate 8 Pro

 

HP Slate 8 Pro an 8-inch tablet with 1600 x 1200 pixels screen. It packs NVIDIA's powerful Tegra 4 quad-core chip, 16GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi connectivity and a microSD memory card slot.

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

Solid tablet with Android Lollipop

Writing on paper with Duet Pen resulted in inconsistent results for us

Great while it lasts

 

Good picture quality and resolution. Not slow either.

Its impossible to charge. I've used 7 different chargers to plug into this thing and nothing will charge it, not even the cable it came with. I guess these are the disposable cameras of the tablet era. Once its dead its dead. I bought two of these and...
