HP introduced its latest tablet called Slate 6 VoiceTab II carrying a price tag of Rs 15,990. The device is pretty convincing as it appears to be more of a phablet with a 6 inch display that avoids placing a 7 incher next to your ears. This will definitely make it comfortable for voice calling than the tablets. Let’s take a look at the quick review of the tablet below.
Camera and Internal Storage
The device features a standard 8 MP rear shooter with LED flash at its back and a 2 MP front facing selfie camera for video conferencing. This is almost similar to what the other devices in this price bracket come with and it should provide an average photography experience.
Internal storage is impressive at 16 GB and you can further expand this by another 32 GB using a micro SD card. This storage should be sufficient for most users and we do not have any issues in this regard.
Processor and Battery
The HP Slate 6 VoiceTab II uses a 1.2 GHz quad core Marvell PXA1088 chipset that is assisted by 1 GB of RAM. The processor supports FHD 1080p video recording, 3D graphics and other benefits. Also, the 1 GB of RAM onboard should be providing swift multi-tasking and it is similar to what the challengers feature.
Battery capacity in the HP offering is 3,000 mAh that is pretty standard considering the specifications of the slate. We can expect this battery to provide a moderate backup to the device under mixed usage.
Display and Other Features
The HP Slate 6 VoiceTab II flaunts a 6 inch IPS display that carries a HD screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels. There are several other offerings in the similar price bracket and though the device has an average display, it should be acceptable for the pricing it asks.
The tablet has dual SIM card slots for 3G connectivity and runs Android 4.4 KitKat for rich user experience. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and micro USB.
