Google Nexus 7 Review

 

It's hard not to have high expectations of Google's new Nexus 7—the original was a standout product that offered a satisfying Android experience in a highly portable 7-inch form factor, for less than $200. Now we've got the new Nexus 7 (is it us, or is...

Nexus 7 Review (2013)

 

Nexus 7 Review (2013) | The new Nexus 7 2013 doesn't disappoint. We knew that it was coming, and that a few things were going to get better (1920x1200 display), but it has exceeded our expectations.

Last year, the Nexus 7 was a great tablet because the experience was very good in relation with the price. The Nexus 7 2 has a very good user experience regardless of the price, and when you take the price into account, the new Nexus 7 is an absolute...

Google Nexus 7 (32GB, Unlocked)

 

The Google Nexus 7 ($299 for 32GB, unlocked), made by Asus, is the best small tablet available today. We've said that before in our Editors' Choice review of the original model. Now it has up to 32GB storage and 3G wireless with either AT&T or...

Plenty of storage. Solid performance. Latest version of Android. Inexpensive, for a cellular tablet

Cellular speeds are more 3G than 4G. Only compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile

The Nexus 7 is the best small tablet on the market, but we'd rather tether it to a 4G smartphone than use the built-in modem here.

Google Nexus 7 (32GB, Wi-Fi only)

 

Several months after its debut, the Nexus 7 is still an excellent tablet. The 8GB version is gone and the tablet now starts at $199 for 16GB. Paying $249 nets you the 32GB version, and the 32GB version with HSPA+ is available for $299.

The Nexus 7 features a sharp screen, a comfortable design, and great battery life at a low starting price. Android 4.2 adds some welcome and useful features.

Android still needs more tablet-optimized apps, newer games have frame rate issues, and HSPA+ speeds seem particularly location-dependent.

With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer.

Google Nexus 7 review: Catching Fire

 

Google's Nexus line has welcomed its first tablet, the Nexus 7. With a promise of solid specs for a low price, the ASUS-made tablet is poised to storm the Android tablet market and maybe even steal a chunk of Apple iPad's market share.

7" 16M-color IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WXGA resolution (1280 x 800 pixels), scratch-resistant Corning glass ; NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset: quad-core 1.2GHz (1.3GHz in single-core mode) ARM Cortex-A9 processor; 1GB of RAM; ULP GeForce GPU ; Android...

The screen is a bit washed out and has poor sunlight legibility ; Non-expandable memory ; No USB mass storage or TV-out ; No mobile data-enabled version ; Front-facing camera only ; Disappointing audio output

So that's that then - it's time we summed our experience with the Nexus 7. The short version is that Google and Asus have done a great job. If this is what Android slates looked like from the start, they wouldn't still be playing catch up with the iPad.

The Google Nexus 7 Review

Google Nexus 7

 

The Nexus 7 is Google's boldest attempt yet to create a hit Android product of its own. It's also a blatant attempt to capture the massive popularity of small 7-inch tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, which have been some of the only tablets...

Fantastic $200 price ; Powerful processor ; High resolution screen ; Google Now rocks ; Android 4.1 is a big improvement ; Runs phone and tablet apps well

App selection not as good as iPad ; No microSD ; Google Play apps aren't our favorite ; No rear camera ; No 3G or 4G option (Wi-Fi only)

It's half the size of the iPad, but the Nexus 7 may be its best challenger yet.

If you've been on the fence about Android, or tablets in general, this is the tablet you've been waiting for.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review: Solid, but Not Revolutionary

 

The Google Nexus 7 tablet resets expectations of what an inexpensive tablet can and should be. Starting at $199, the Nexus 7 clearly guns for Amazon's same-priced but lesser-quality Kindle Fire, which runs Amazon's limited flavor of Android.

Solid design ; Optically bonded display minimizes glare

Lacks a MicroSD card slot ; 8GB model has just 5.62GB of user-accessible space

The best 7-inch Android tablet you can buy today, the Nexus 7 delivers solid performance and usability at a value price; but it also has at-times funky text rendering and its lack of a MicroSD card slot makes the 16GB model the better option.
