It is that time of the year I think all the rumours are coming true. We had faintly heard that HP would be releasing their smartphone, actually that it is under production and guess what? They day is here. HP has released the HP Slate 6. It is a stunningly thin and a screamingly fast smartphone. The whole name is really long, HP SLATE 6 VOICE TAB. Jesus, why would anyone do that to themselves? Anyway, the phone is really very nice overall. To know about the specifics, read on people.

Design

The thing that will wow you the most will be the amazingly sleek and slim chassis. HP Slate 6 Voice Tab is razor sharp and really astonishingly thin. It almost seems fragile but the solid metal is really strong. Though the phone is really large, because of this thinness HP Slate 6 Voice Tab just fits right in. But because of the large dimensions overall, you will have a hard time to get your single thumb all around it. The built quality is really amazing. It is of top quality and you will have no complaints from it for the price you are paying.

Display

You will be delighted when you have the first glance on the display. HP Slate 6 Voice Tab fancies a 6 inch 720p HD display. That is, a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The colours are really nice and vibrant. The detailing is really sharp but not as sharp as a full HD display. But the colours on this display are better than most full HD display by a margin. HP Slate 6 Voice Tab surely has one of the most stunning 720p displays.

Camera

The camera on board is full of disappointments. HP Slate 6 Voice Tab has a 5MP primary camera which takes very dull photographs which are neither rich in colour nor in detailing. It is probably the worse off camera around this price tag. The saturation is just not right. Nothing about HP Slate 6 Voice Tab’s primary camera is right. The front facing camera is decent for selfies and video calling.

Software

HP has put their own little skin on the Android here. It runs on their UI over the Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean. I don’t think you can get a KitKat v4.4 update so doesn’t buy this thinking you will get it done. The user interface is nothing we have not seen before on Android, it seems pretty ordinary. You can tap into Google Play store for your apps.

Performance

There is a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor providing HP Slate 6 Voice Tab the fuel for your apps. The processor in neither MKT nor Qualcomm and not even Intel, it is just something else. It is surely enough to give even Asphalt enough power to go on smoothly on your phone. HP Slate 6 Voice Tab also gives you 1GB of RAM for amazing multitasking. The battery on board can last up for at least a day without any problems. Internal memory on the HP Slate 6 Voice Tab is 16GB expandable to up to 32GB.
