Google Nexus Player review

 

The story of the Google Nexus Player isn't really about a set-top box. It's about Google, about the fact that no tech company has yet figured out the perfect way to insert itself into the four-plus...

Pretty, intuitive interface ; Voice search can be really powerful ; It's a Chromecast

Not nearly enough apps or games yet ; Best features only work with Google apps for now ; Some quirky software bugs

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 with mobile data review

 

I've owned too many tablets over the last three years, and not a single one has had cellular connectivity. I've always bought the Wi-Fi model because I don't want to pay for extra data, I don't...

Incredible price ; Jelly Bean is a big improvement ; Solid design that feels great in your hand ; Always-on connection is a nice change

Tablet app selection remains thin ; New Play stores still don't offer enough content ; Limited storage options

Unless price is the only consideration, you should always buy a data-enabled tablet

Google Nexus 7 (32GB, HSPA+) review

 

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.

Lucky Number 7

 

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

This is the Android tablet you’ve been waiting for. Beautiful, detailed display. Handsome design and fantastic build quality. Jelly Bean feels like it was built for the Nexus 7. The first 7-inch quad core tablet, it has Porsche-like speed and agility

Android still doesn’t have enough tablet-optimized apps. No rear camera

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.

Google Nexus 7

 

Google and Asus smack it out of the park with the Nexus 7, a terrific small-screen tablet that's an incredible value at $200.

Fast. Well-built. Well worth the money

Very limited storage. Google Play media store doesn't quite work. No HDMI or MHL to connect the tablet to HDTVs

Google's Nexus 7 ($199 for 8GB, $249 for 16GB) is a game-changer. The first tablet with Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean," it's the most bang for the buck you can get in the market right now. It's versatile, well-built, fast, and a lot of fun to use. It...

Google Nexus 7 review (2013)

 

I make a lot of aspirational purchases. I constantly buy books I really ought to read, subscribe to magazines that are so good the one time a year I actually get around to opening them, and add movies like Schindler's List to my Netflix queue because...

Incredible display ; Thin and light ; Solid performance

Big, awkward bezels ; App ecosystem still lags iOS

My new default answer to "what tablet should I buy?"

Nexus 7 review

 

Google's Nexus 7 tablet is not exactly a surprise. Nor is the fact that I'm able to work on a review of the product just hours after the device was announced. For years now, Google has had the uncanny habit of not only making...

Incredible price ; Jelly Bean is a big improvement ; Solid design that feels great in your hand

Tablet app selection remains thin ; New Play stores still don't offer enough content ; Limited storage options

This isn’t just an excellent tablet for $200, It’s an excellent tablet, period

The Google Nexus 7 Review

 

I viewed Google I/O, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) and the first Nexus tablet as Google's last chance to deliver a knockout in the tablet space before the onslaught of Windows 8 and Windows RT devices later this year. While the show was undoubtedly a...
