Earlier this month we’ve seen a leak of a tablet with too much bezel on it, that tablet didn’t have a name, up until now that is. HP launched that bezel-heavy tablet under the “HP 7 Plus” name. This is now the most affordable tablet in the HP line, going for just $99, we have to admit it looks cheap and quite frankly rather ugly, but the price is low so we can’t complain much.
Regarding the hardware we’re looking at a quad-core tablet featuring Allwinner Technology A31 chip with four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1 GHz, alongside it we have a Power VR SGX544MP2 GPU. Allwinner chips are mainly used for budget devices in China. HP 7 Plus has a 7″ (as the name states) display 1024×600 in resolution. The device has 1GB of RAM, 8GB storage expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB), 2MP back and 0.3MP front cameras and it is powered by 2800mAh battery. As far as software goes, Android 4.2.2 is powering the tablet and it is a near stock version of it, which is a good thing.
You can’t expect much from a tablet priced at $99, now can you. You get what you pay for and for that price we can’t complain much, it’s not the fastest tablet in the world, far from it actually but you’re not going to spend much either.
