Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Android

Android:
"Facebook is super annoying using their android app."
_
"hopefully an update to LOLIPOP wil fix this annoying problem, as well as the problem with the lagging issue from android 4.3 to 4.4 that some people are experiencing."
_
"i enjoyed this slatebook with android 4.4.x when it was working, with that said, i give it a 5 star...BUT im in the process of returning it because i keep getting an error message that says something to the effect of ANDROID SYSTEMUI ERROR, when this happens, i click on the OK button, the error messge box disappear, then it takes me to the lock screen, then i have to unlock, a few seconds later i get the same error...so i couldnt do anything...but it was what i wanted a laptop to be."
_
"The Slatebook avoids all those problems and offers a swift, solid, sensible Android experience that syncs with your other devices in the first two minutes out of the box."
_
"Possible that I have something set wrong or incorrectly in Android that causes it to use a lot of battery on standby, but it's kind of annoying."
_
"This is a really weird laptop because of Android."
_
"best android i have had so far no joke"
_
"Android works perfect offline and syncs via google drive when connected, pure bliss."
_
"I walked into the purchase knowing that it would be only a secondary device...but I love the functionality of Android OS, and the lightweight portability of this laptop is great."
_
"I should admit I expected more from this HP + Android association, but as far as it stands, it is great for me: Barely a standard tablet with a keyboard."
_
"So what platform to choose, I knew that Android, a Linux derivative had the ease of interface; but, I wanted an intel CPU."

Color

Color:
"In short, it meets 90% of the needs at the right price, (though was initally cheaper then the current price, when compared to a Chromebook, the HP Slate 14 is a much better value).Sure I read the professional reviews, color accuracy or resolution is not as good."
_
"Very noticeable color banding, horrible viewing angles."
_
"The shifting of color on the screen is annoying and there seems to be no adjustments to change it."
_
"The unit is solid well spaced keys, a clear image and if you reduce the screen intensity the color to chroma match is much better and still bright enough to see from three feet away."
_
"Given that this is an Android-powered machine, it's unlikely you're going to be trying to do anything requiring great color accuracy, such as heavy photo editing, on this one."
_
"However the viewing angle is not so great, I ended up having to adjust it quite a bit to make sure the colors looked good."
_
"SCREEN: High definition and good color."
_
"Picture quality is as expected from a full HD display and I find the colors to be very good."

Display

Display:
"One major drawback, display resolution."
_
"If gaming is your primary usage, you will probably find this laptop too limiting - it will play games that only display in portrait mode, but much smaller and hard to move around a 14 device at 3.71 lbs."
_
"I would like it in red too...Not So Good:-Very good display but could be better."
_
"Amazing price, bueatiful 14 FULL HD, TOUCHSCREEN display."
_
"Streaming TV on the internet looks pretty good if you're looking at the display straight on."
_
"Yes, this laptop has a crisp display and a comfortable keyboard, but it doesn't have enough specs to recommend it."
_
"It doesn't have blistering speed, lots of storage or the best display but it can do a lot in a small, light weight package."
_
"The Slatebook 14 includes a nice 1920x1080 full HD touch display, a fast Tegra 4 processor and 2 gigs of RAM - making it a very capable gaming and general purpose machine."

Keyboard

Keyboard:
"I HAVE TO CHARGE IT ALL THE TIME, Will not charge unless its turned on, Keyboard is not easy to use as you have to pound on it."
_
"Those are prone to annoying lag, or feel flimsy, or have annoying problems with virtual keyboards popping up, or have cramped screens, and so on."
_
"But the browser experience and general overall experience with android using a trackpad and a keyboard just aren't all that good."
_
"I should admit I expected more from this HP + Android association, but as far as it stands, it is great for me: Barely a standard tablet with a keyboard."
_
"Amazing keyboard, HDMI out, some of the BEST SPEAKERS youll ever hear on a laptop, an HONEST 8 hour battery life."
_
"Well, if you like using the direction keys on the keyboard, don't upgrade."
_
"The keyboard works really well and feels good under the fingers."
_
"This is a well built laptop, the keyboard surround being steel not plastic and the yellow plastic underside is kind of like rubberized plastic."

Quality

Quality:
"high hope, love the concept, solid build quality, Wifi defective, dead on arrival."
_
"If the HP Chromebook 14 could put a quality 1650x1050 or 1080p screen, instead of the crappy 1366x768, I would buy it in a second...but this product doesn't exist."
_
"The screen is 1080p but has terrible quality, you have to be facing the screen perfectly to see its beauty, but if your viewing angle are off by a millimeter everything looks terrible."
_
"For the price I had to pay, for the build quality of this device , for the luxurious keyboard, for the great speakers, for the touchscreen monitor, for the wide variety of applications availabIe for this OS, for the USB 3.0 port, for the 2 additional USB 2.0 ports, for the HDMI port, for the comfort of NOT HAVING A NOISY FAN, for not burning my lap with heat, for being easy to carry, for the 14 INCH SCREEN , for the FULL SIZE KEYBORD I am giving the HP SLATEBOOK 14 a 4 star rating on Amazon."
