Asus Google Nexus 7 (2013) review: The magnificent seven

 

A year after the original took the tablet market by storm, the second generation ASUS Nexus 7 has arrived to take part in an altogether different ballgame. With the first generation of the compact slate having established the Nexus 7 brand as the most...

7" LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, 16M colors ; Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box with the best update support in the business ; 1.5 GHz quad-core Krait CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, Qualcomm...

Awkwardly positioned stereo speakers ; Poor video codec support out of the box ; Memory not expandable ; Limited availability at launch

After taking the new ASUS Nexus 7 through the hoops of our review process, we are happy to tell you that the slate is almost everything we hoped it will be. As a successor to the most popular tablet in the Android kingdom, the 2013 Nexus 7 ticks just...

Nexus 7 review (2013)

 

The Nexus 7 is definitely the best bang for your buck, and is still affordable enough for most budget-savvy shoppers.

Beautiful 1080p display ; Improved performance ; Incredibly loud sound ; Wireless charging

Weirdly proportioned bezels ; Battery life not as long as the original Nexus 7's

When the first Nexus 7 came out, we applauded Google's willingness to sell it for less than $199. Even though the new version is an extra $30, we can confidently say it offers the best bang for your buck -- yes, that includes the iPad mini, though...

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.

Nexus 7 review: the best $200 tablet you can buy

 

In 2008, when the Eee PC was revolutionizing the computing world and driving every manufacturer to make cheaper and smaller laptops, Sony washed its

Quality look and feel ; Great display ; Solid performance ; Killer price

Limited storage

Google's first Nexus tablet is a home run, besting the Kindle Fire and handily securing the position of the best budget 7-inch tablet.

Still the Best Android Tablet

 

When Google debuted its first Nexus-branded tablet last summer, it was pretty much everything we wanted . Its pint-sized body was handsome and speedy, the display was beautiful, and it ran a version of Android that (finally) felt like it was made to...

Google Nexus 7 (2013)

 

Google's Nexus 7 continues to set the bar for small-screen tablets with a perfect balance between price and performance.

Fast. Well-built. Excellent battery life. Well worth the money.

Some third-party apps must be updated for Android 4.3.

Android 4.3's other flagship feature makes this an excellent kids' tablet, although not quite as good as the Amazon Kindle Fire with FreeTime. Android 4.2 let you create multiple user accounts on your tablet. Now, "restricted profiles" let you create...

Google Nexus 7 ( 2013, Lollipop)

 

Also, at $230 (for 16GB), it's still an affordable tablet with one of the highest values in the market, despite a $30 price hike over the previous generation. The $270 32GB Wi-Fi model and $350 4G LTE version are even better values, especially compared...

The Nexus 7’s razor-sharp full-HD screen, silky smooth performance, long battery life, meager weight, and affordable price make it the best tablet value on the market.

The back is missing the soft grippy texture of the original, screen colors lack accuracy, and there's no microSD support. Android 4.3 has few useful interface improvements.

Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.

Pound for pound, the Nexus 7 is the best small tablet you can buy. It houses a ridiculously sharp, bright screen, its gaming performance is second only to the fourth-generation iPad, and as a Google-branded tablet it will always see the latest version...
