Many of the tablets launched by Asian manufacturers, especially those based in China, stand out for their tight value for money, but design is rarely the strong point of one of them. Hisense Mirror can therefore be considered as an exception within the norm, since its aesthetic section left us stunned since the first images were leaked a few months ago. It is one of the most promising tablets for this 2015, since to its particular design we must add a good technical sheet and a price that we could consider affordable for everything it offers. If you are interested, we give more details below.
Surely many of you will have thought on occasion how your smartphone or tablet would be if it did not have some side frames, how beautiful it would be and also much smaller, right? Although there are many the manufacturers that increasingly reduce these spaces more and more surrounding the screen in order to minimize the dimensions of the device (especially with the increase in screen size and the growth of the phablets) continue to face a problem: keep the ergonomics and easy grip of the terminal without it being necessary to cover part of the screen, without forgetting that some have a fingerprint reader and this requires a button and a frame to house it.
The best approach that currently exists to these “Frameless devices” is offered by Sharp, with models such as the Aquos Pad SH-05G, a 7-inch tablet presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year. The solution that the Japanese contribute to the problem that we presented in the previous paragraph is simple, reducing to a minimum the frames of three of the sides, keeping the fourth as the main point of grip. This may be an option when it comes to a compact device, but it gets complicated when the dimensions increase. Even so, the Hisense Mirror uses a fairly similar idea.
