HP Slate 7 The HP Slate 7 shapes up pretty well with its spec. It boasts an ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage. Importantly the Slate 7 comes with a microSD slot which can expand the memory by up to 32GB, so this makes up for the slightly small storage spec.
While there is a bit of a big gap between where the screen finishes and the edge of the tablet, the overall design of the Slate 7 is pretty good. It sports a nice stainless steel frame, and the device we saw had a metallic grey looking finish to the back (it’s also available in red), the result is an aesthetically impressive tablet. It weighs a pretty reasonable 370g and measures in at 197.1 x 116.1 x 10.7 mm.
The 7-inch screen (which as mentioned above, doesn’t come anywhere close to the edge of the tablet) isn't going to dazzle you at all. But that’s not what you expect from a cheap entry-level device. It has a screen res of 600 x 1024 pixels, and a pixel density of 170ppi, this lags someway behind its two main rivals the Nexus 4 and Kindle Fire HD, which both have a pixel densities of 216ppi. It didn’t look that bad in real life though, to be fair to the Slate 7. Price;$169.00 VS Dell Venue 7 Dell Venue 7inch tablet running Android 4.2.2 Jellybean and upgradeable to Kit-Kat on a 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 16 GB internal memory.The Dell Venue 7 starts at $149 and features a pure Android 4.2.2 operating system. It's lightweight, houses a microSD card expansion, and performs smoothly.The 7-inch IPS LCD brings the 1,280-by-800 resolution and front-facing camera of the Venue 8 to a slightly smaller panel, and it's slightly sharper as a result at 215 pixels per inch. It beats Asus's and Hisense's offerings. Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 7" has the same resolution, but has better color saturation and better viewing angles than the Venue 7. The Nook HD has a 1,440-by-900 display, beating both of these tablets in the high-res arms race.The Dell Venue 7 lasted for 6 hours and 20 minutes on the LAPTOP Battery Test (Web surfing via Wi-Fi), which is longer than the Sero 7 Pro (6:09), but an hour less than the 7:22 category average and more than three hours less than the MeMO Pad HD 7's epic battery life of 9 hours and 40 minutes.
But, Larger games take a while to load, the touch screen is sometimes unresponsive, and battery life only lasts about a day.
The bottom line: The Dell Venue 7 offers a simple design and smooth performance for the right price, but the Nexus 7 is a significant upgrade for not much more. Specifications

VS Lenovo IdeaTab S5000
The S5000 is one of the current mid-range models from a major corporation. With a suggested retail price of $275.Measuring just 7.9 mm, the S5000 is one of the slimmest tablets in the market. It weighs in at just 246 grams (0.54 lbs), nearly one-fifth lighter than many of the premium tablets being sold today. Inside this thin and light frame resides plenty of horsepower, starting with a 7-inch1280x800 resolution, 350 nit brightness and full HD wide-viewing angle display to make it easy to share photos and videos with family and friends.A 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek 8389 CPU acts as the brains for the 3G model, and a MediaTek 8125 processor runs the Wi-Fi-only version. Other components include 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB, an accelerometer, GPS, a 5-megapixel back camera, and a 1.6-megapixel front shooter. Lenovo claims up to 8 hours of life with the included 3,200MAh battery,so you should get around eight hours' web browsing out of the device, or six hours' HD video watching. This figure is decent enough, and matches that of most of its rivals.
