Its battery life is estimated at up to 8 hours. The tablet has an internal storage capacity of 32GB which can be expanded. HP Stream 7 is also equipped with two cameras, the rear camera has a 2MP resolution and the front one offers a 0.3 MP resolution which, of course, won’t allow to take catwalk pictures. The tablet has 802.11 b/g/b/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

But to call a spade a spade, there are some disadvantages when you buy a cheap tablet. For example, the image is not crystal clear because of low resolution, the tablet can break easily because of low-quality material and the shape may not be as trendy. However, let us not forget that if you buy one of these tablets, you’ll get one year of free access to Office 365 and 1TB of Microsoft OneDrive online storage.
