The 8" 4:3 aspect ratio on tablets makes viewing web pages perfect, especially at this size. I also have the 8 inch lenovo yoga but its just too difficult to view webpages on such a thin viewing screen.
The miracast wifi direct works great, it connected to my lenovo wd100 dongle on the first try, without any issues at all. It also connected flawlessly via bluetooth to my new hardon karmon bluetooth over the ear headphones.
No problems connecting at all via wi-fi, it connects via dual bands at 2.4ghz and at 5ghz without any issues whatsoever.
The tablet also has an hdmi port, even though most sites dont even list it as a available port.
The HP Slate S8 also has an included internal app for controlling the processor speed and power. There are three levels, maximum, balanced and power saver, on the power saver mode the processor only utilizes only 2 of the 4 available processors. On balanced it uses all four but limits the frames per second and at maximum it uses all 4 and lifts the frames per second limit. If you arent playing games or multi-tasking i have found that cutting back on the processor really saves your battery.
In the end, i highly recommend this tablet
