Hello! I have a few question about the build quality of HP Prime.
Is it really "hi-end class" calculator from HP?
1. What is a matrix of display IPS or TN+film?
2. What is material covered of display? Gorilla Glass or Plexiglass?
3. What is a quality of keyboard? Is it like old HP15C?
Thank You!

1) not sure, looks worse than my phone (amoled) but for the resolution I think whatever they use is perfect
2) normal plastic in my opinion
3) like the latest 50gs

1. Not 100% sure on this, but I would assume TN.
2. Hardened soda-lime glass.
3. Basically the same internal design as has been used on all the current/recent HP calcs like the 10bII+, 50g, 12C, etc.

Thank You for the replies. I think about the matrix can be judged from the viewing angles.

The screen is probably TN. I have compared it to 2 laptops, Asus VivoBook Flip (under $1000) and MSI gamer laptop (plus $2000) and it behaves exactly as the first one. The second one does not shift colors while the angle increases as the calculator.

It does not really matter for the calculator though.
