Reviews for the HP SlateBook x2

74% Review HP SlateBook x2 10-h010nr Tablet | Notebookcheck
Handy detachable. The 10.1-inch SlateBook x2 joins the 11.6-inch Envy x2 and 13.3-inch Split x2 as one of HP's key products in the detachable notebook category. It is also the least expensive model of the x2 series at a starting price of $480 and is one of the earliest tablets to sport the Tegra 4 APU. We take a closer look at the Tegra 4 hardware and Android 4.2 software in this full review.

In an already congested convertible market, the HP Slatebook X2 simply doesn’t do enough to stand out of the crowd. It does offer a good typing experience and the Tegra 4 innards means it's fast, but there are plenty of nagging issues to raise. It’s pretty uninspiring to look at, the screen is not best in class and more disappointingly, the battery life is pretty average for a device of this kind. The HP Slatebook X2 is a powerful Tegra 4-powered Android convertible let down by an average battery life and disappointing screen. It's not dreadful by any means, but there's little here that makes it stand out.

60% Review: HP SlateBook x2 – Not Ready For Work
Source: Techtree.com English
While it’s great that HP is experimenting with the SlateBooks, the problem lies in the fact that this product is still a work in progress. Most of the issues we had with the HP SlateBook x2 are more to do with software rather than hardware itself. For an experience like this, you need to make much better and tighter integration for the product as a whole, and this means re-thinking everything, not just slapping on tweaks.

The HP SlateBook x2 is a fast hybrid device and performed quite well in most of the benchmark tests. Barring the cramped keyboard, reflective screen and the below average audio experience we did not find anything missing in the device. Lack of 3G may be an issue for some. Sure the rear camera is a disappointment, but that should never be a consideration while buying a hybrid device. The only competition it faces is from the Snapdragon 800 sporting Sony Xperia Z Ultra, but then that is more of a phablet and addresses a different set of audience. The price of Rs. 39,900 is on the higher side for what is essentially an Android tablet with a keyboard dock. The only audience we can think of for the SlateBook x2 are people who want a long lasting battery life and a dedicated keyboard for their tablet. Since this is the only Tegra 4 hybrid we have tested so far, we would like to try out some more Tegra 4 or Snapdragon 800 devices before we can go ahead and recommend the SlateBook x2.

HP takes on ASUS with a dockable Android tablet

This probably goes without saying, but the HP SlateBook x2 is only a smart buy if you intend to make good use out of the keyboard. It's important to remember that the dock isn't a fun extra here: it comes in the box, and it defines the way you're supposed to use the product.

For Rs. 39,990 you have a lot of high-end tablets at your disposal. Sure, the highlight of the HP Slatebook X2 is the Tegra 4 chipset powering it and it is a beast especially if you are one who would like to play games on the device. We'd recommend you stick to the tried and tested iPad 4th gen, Samsung Galaxy Note 800 and more available in the market if you want a good overall performing tablet.

As you may have noticed, there's plenty of competition in the Android tablet space. The SlateBook x2 lacks the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1's pen support, and it's not the sweet deal the much smaller, lightweight Google Nexus 7$229.99 at OfficeDepot is. The Apple iPad remains our Editors' Choice thanks to its app selection, and you can always add Logitech's excellent Ultrathin keyboard, although that combo costs more than the SlateBook x2. But if you want a 10-inch tablet that doubles as a keyboarded productivity machine out of the box, and fast performance is a priority, the SlateBook x2 presents a compelling—if somewhat flawed—option.

In short: the HP SlateBook x2 looks good, is well built, has a great screen and Tegra 4 is an exciting prospect. If Android is the right fit for your tablet needs then the sub-£400 price tag seems very fair to us for what's on offer. Keep eyes out for this release before the end of August this year.

Comment

Model:

The HP Slatebook is a nifty tablet with a keyboard dock, making it a candidate for those looking for an allround netbook/tablet combo. The design looks a little antiquated: Matte black plastic covers the keyboard side and the outside is grey and unassuming. The weight is light, though the device is slightly thicker than most of the other 10 inch devices out there. The plastic feels sturdy enough, and it sits comfortably in the hand during tablet use. It runs the Android OS on the 1,8 GHz Nvidia Tegra 4 quad-core processor with a 72-core GPU and it features 2 GB of RAM. All of this amounts to good performance and most demanding games run well on the HP SlateBook x2. However - and this applies to everything about the HP SlateBook x2 – there are better devices for less money.

The keyboard is unfortunately cramped and the touchpad is tiny, which does not allow long periods of comfortable use. There are plenty of other better designed tablet/netbook hybrids out there – or even tablets with great keyboard dock accessories. Another letdown comes in the form of the 1920 x 1200 resolution screen, which is sharp enough, but there is an unmistakable yellow tint that puts an ugly cast over anything white on the display. Again, many other devices offer better resolutions and less of an ugly view. Overall, in light of all the downsides, the HP SlateBook x2 offers little value for the money. Perhaps if the price drops, it would be worth what it offers, but not until then.

10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
