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

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

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

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.

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.

Google Nexus 7 (32GB, Unlocked)

 

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 cellular modem here.

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.

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.

Review: Google Nexus 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

 

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. Excellent battery life. 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.

For more on the many improvements in Android, see our full review of Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" (4.5 stars).

The Nexus 7 (2013) Review

 

Truth be told, Google has made (or at least directed the making of) some of the best tablets on the market today. The original Nexus 7 was groundbreaking in that it offered a totally usable platform, married to the latest version of Android, for $199....

The original Nexus 7 gave us a decent Android experience at a very low cost. This year ASUS and Google raised the bar for sure. The new Nexus 7 is no longer just a decent tablet at a good price, it's an incredible tablet. With this Nexus, it's clear...
