    Forget Price, Best 7" Tablet on the Market

    |
    Posted .

    There's no denying this is a great device for a low price, but I'd put the Nexus 7 (2013) head-to-head with any 7" tablet - including the iPad mini. The hardware is fantastic and wonderfully designed & built. The Nexus 7 (2013) is miles ahead of it's predecessor in every way. The large resolution and high pixel density makes for a beautiful viewing experience, and the speakers are great (the surround sound surprisingly sounds great)! You're running the latest, greatest Android build with a growing number of well designed apps for tablets. I bought my mom a Nexus 7 last year. Since that time she's purchased the new model and sold her laptop. This device can be used by anyone!

    Not only is this a great tablet, they have upgraded (online) it from the 4.3 that it came with to 4.4.4. Talk about standing behind your products; you won't get that with the off brands. Don't ever buy a bargain brand...I bought two and they are useless, and always are getting stuck. It was worth the money to avoid all the frustration of an inferior product.

    Great Little Tablet!

    |
    Posted .

    I got this for College. I found all my books for my classes online in eBook form, so I figured I would find a tablet to put them on, that way I don't have to lug around a bunch of textbooks. I also wanted a screen that had a full HD display (at least 1080p), in case I want to watch High Definition movies on it. I was debating between a large (10 inch) or small (7 inch) tablet. And I wanted something running Android software (or at least nothing Apple related). Also I only had a budget of about $200. This thing fit the bill. I read mostly good reviews for it, so I bought it at my local Best Buy. It is a nice looking tablet, and it met all of my expectations. The display is great. The colors and display are great (1900x1200, even more pixels than 1080p). If you have an android phone, it operates similarly to that. Any app that it doesn't come with, you can find easily on Google Play for free (like a music player or file manager). I was afraid it might be too small, but so far I use it in my classes as you would use a textbook, and it has never been a problem for me. I also watch movies on it, surf the internet, and check email and stuff. I haven't used it to type documents, but I tested the spreadsheet and Word apps, and they work well. Overall, I am in love with this tablet. The only drawback that I can possibly think of is that it doesn't come with any expandable memory options, like a MicroSD card port. I got the 16GB version, and it has not been a problem for me though. I don't mind it at all. If I want to put something from my computer onto the tablet (or vice versa), I just use the USB cable. Simple. Also, although I was reticent to use cloud storage because of the need to always be near an internet connection, I have been using Google Drive and OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) more often recently, and sometimes those things are easier than storing stuff on actual devices. Really this thing is great. I am not upset that it isn't as large as the 10 inch tablets. It has grown on me. I think now I actually prefer the smaller size. It's easier to hold when reading, or watching movies while holding it. If you have the money, and you want a great little tablet, don't wait. Go get this thing. It will make you happy.

    Great tablet for anyone

    I bought this for my sister and her 2 year old child since they'll be on a long flight back home for the holidays. I also purchased a case (from a different site) with a built in screen protector, hard plastic shell, and a think rubber skin for protection since it will be used by a small child. Since it comes with Android 4.3 I was able to set up different user profiles, 1 for my sister and 1 for the kid (it was really easy to do). I set it up with my sisters email account and seeing as she has an android phone, all her apps were automatically downloaded onto the device. I also downloaded a few kid games to keep her kid entertained. With the profile i was able to restrict access to EVERYTHING except for the few kid games under the kid profile. That way she couldn't ruin or delete anything since there is a password on the other account. The screen is amazingly bright and clear. The audio is also pretty good considering the size of the device. I have the original Nexus 7 and there is a noticeable speed improvement over the old Tegra3. While not the newest Snapdragon 800 chipset, i won't be complaining seeing as the price is so good. I bought it at $229 for the 16GB but now with the holidays around you can find the same model for $199.

    Quality Build/Specs in a Budget Tablet

    Posted .

    I had the original Nexus 7 and these are my thoughts after just two days with the new second generation Nexus 7. Great display although I can't really tell that much of a difference between the first generation and second generation. The new version is blazing fast... Even after a complete data wipe and reset on the original Nexus 7 and running an app to clean up the internal memory (The original Nexus had some lag issues as it upgraded to newer versions of android and you needed to clean up the memory drive) The new version is a lot faster.. but webpages and videos load a lot faster and the new Android (My original Nexus is now on Android 4.3 now) is super smooth and even more so with the extra RAM and better processor, you can truly see the difference. The other major improvement over the original are the speakers... The original Nexus 7 had HORRIBLE speakers... even with the volume all the way up I had to use headphones to actually hear anything clearly on the tablet.. Even in a library it was hard to hear let alone if there is anything else going on around you... The new Nexus 7 now has two rear speakers and they are ten+ times better than the original... You can actually hear things without headphones on. I can actually watch video without having to get my headphones or hold the tablet up to my ear to hear it... The touch screen seems a lot smoother to the touch and much more responsive vs the original but it may just be that it's brand new out of the box vs a device that is 13+ months old.... So far after two days things I don't like... The power button is pretty much flush with the rim of the device and it's not as easy to power up as the original. With the original Nexus 7 it took way less effort to power the screen on... with the new one I find myself thinking I hit the button only to have to press at it a couple of times to light up the screen. After messing with it it's just a matter of making sure you put enough pressure and hit the button right. The original device the button sat up higher on the side than on the new one.... But even after two days now I am starting to figure out how to hit it right and I am sure over time I'll have it perfected in such a way I don't have to "Try" more than once.... There are a few Apps that are not optimized yet for 4.3 but that is minimal as android 4.3 was just released a few days ago... Developers will have that figured out in no time. I also have pretty much zero need for the backside camera. It's a luxury upgrade but I don't take pictures with my tablet but plenty of people do so it's a nice upgrade over the original but not something I need or will use much if ever.... in my home my wife and one daughter both have iPad's and my other daughter just got the Galaxy Tab 3 8" tablet.... You can't really go wrong with any of these devices... I've used the iPad and Galaxy Tab 3 numerous times. The iPad is bigger and heavier but Apple puts together a solid product. The Galaxy Tab 3 is bigger than the Nexus but smaller and lighter than the iPad... I don't really care for Touchwiz set over Android. but overall it's a pretty solid device... It comes down to preference.. I use a Galaxy S3 smart phone but it's rooted and I have Touchwiz removed and I run stock vanilla android on my phone. Spec wise your can go wrong with any of these devices.... It's really personal preference more than anything else... I loved my original Nexus 7 and the new one is an improvement over the original. I'd recommend the Nexus 7 but go down to your local best buy and play with the display models and see what you think fits your lifestyle and preferences best...

    Dollar for dollar the best Android tablet.

    Posted .

    I was hesitant to buy this years Nexus 7 based on my experience with last year's model. I bought the 1st generation model a year ago but wound up exchanging it for an iPad mini. I know there are tons of tablets to choose from nowadays with the prices ranging from $60 to over $600 so I'm going to compare the two models that most people will eventually wind up buying as far as the 7"-8" tablets are concerned: the Google Nexus 7 (2013) and the iPad mini (w/o Retina display). I chose these two because they were most similar in price. (The iPad mini w/Retina display costs almost twice as much; the regular mini only $70 more). Here are the pros & con's of both: Nexus 7 (2013) PROS: Excellent screen resolution (323 PPI); quad core processor; 2 GB of RAM; price; nice thin & light simplistic design; good battery life CONS: Some models have known issues; sub par camera; no expandable storage options like many of the other Android tablets; 8" would've better for reading books, especially with the 16.9 wide screen aspect ratio, buggy at times; occasional lag. iPad mini PROS: Perfect size for reading, playing games or watching movies for a portable handheld tablet; extremely reliable and durable (my kids dropped it a hundred times and it still works fine); great contrast for watching movies; excellent battery life; iOS ecosystem with a tremendous selection of apps & podcasts CONS: Low resolution screen (163 PPI) for reading books and articles; dual core processor & only 512 mb of RAM (weak for a $300 tablet); takes about 5 hrs to fully charge; laggy when upgraded to new iOS 7; costliest tablet in its category Since I have both models, I can honestly say you would be happy with either model. If you read a lot books, news articles & emails and price does matter to you, go with the Nexus 7. If you want an extremely reliable tablet that will hold its resale value well and is simple to use and has great color reproduction when watching movies on Netflix, spend the extra $70 and get the iPad mini.

    Best tablet for the price

    |
    Posted .

    Let me preface this by saying that I have personally tested almost every single tablet on sale at Best Buy to a large degree. Samsung, Apple, Kindle, ive tried them all. The main issue I have had with most of these tablets (save for Apple as they run a relatively clean install of the Operating System) is the fact that almost every single one of them has bloatware. What is bloatware, you ask? Bloatware is the extra applications that the tablet manufacturer decides they want to include with their device. This ranges from custom User interfaces (the reason why even though the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and the Kindle Fire HD look COMPLETELY different, yet they are both running essentially the same version of android), to useless applications you never use and can NOT delete off of the device no matter what you do. This bloatware takes up valuable storage, and also slows down the device. This is where the Nexus 7 shines. Nexus 7 comes with a stock copy of Android 4.3, meaning it is as fast and fluid as it gets. Loading apps, switching between apps, loading webpages, even powering the device on and off all benefit greatly from this clean install of the OS. The other main love I have for this device is the resolution of the screen. At 1920x1080 with a high pixel density, it is one of the sharpest images you will get on a tablet, even compared to some of the bigger players such as the iPad with Retina Display. Overall, you can't go wrong with this tablet, though I do wish expandable memory was an option, then it would have been my dream tablet.

    Perfect tablet for all purposes

    Posted .

    I was torn between a tablet, an e-reader, and a laptop. I also enjoy writing simple apps for the Android as well as working on electronics projects controlled via Bluetooth from an Android. I purchased the Nexus 7 16GB and it does it all. It works great as an e-reader using apps I've downloaded from the Google Play - Amazon Kindle and Aldiko. My initial concern was that it doesn't have an external port for xfering data via USB flash drive or from a card reader. But you can by purchasing an OTG cable (about $3) and downloading Nexus Media Importer from Google Play Store. I can also run videos directly from such external devices. So the 16GB onboard storage is not a concern. I've also used it for Skype videoconferencing. Everything works great. I've not had one problem or one regret. I've had it now for about a month.

    Good but with some caviats

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased the new 7" Nexus from Best Buy on the first day it was available there. I've always wanted a 7" tablet and it sounded like this was just the tablet to fit the bill. Instead of spouting all of the features that everyone already knows about, I'll let you know about some of the issues that I have with it. 1) Button ergonomics. I much prefer the power button to be on a different side than the volume control. My Samsung phone has the power on the top (when holding in portrait mode) and this is where I would have liked the Nexus to have but it. When holding it in Landscaped position, it is quite difficult for me to hit the power button. All of the buttons are recessed somewhat. This is great for making sure that they do not get hit accidentally, but I find it difficult to actually use them without actually looking at the unit. The ergonomics of the buttons are not great for my hands. 2) Wi-Fi - I have serious issues with the Wi-Fi on this unit. From my Trendnet TRU-812DRU, the Nexus often drops its Wi-Fi signal and sometimes never even sees it. You might think that this is the routers fault, but I have no such problems with the Samsung phone or with the iPad 3. I can bring all three devices right to the router and the Samsung and iPad both have full signal and the Nexus does not even show the Trendnet signal at all, says its unavailable. If I reboot the Trendnet, it will usually find it again, but it will drop it often. I have no issues with the Nexus with my Linksys WRT310N wireless however. But the wireless signal is not as strong from this device and I prefer to use the Tendnet for wireless. I have had issues with other wireless routers at other locations with the Nexus. I can tell you that when the Nexus does connect with the Trendnet, I can get internet speed test ratings which are 10+ Mbs faster than I do on my iPad., 57Mbs on Nexus vs 40Mbs (download) on the iPad best case. 3) screen - from what I had heard, I was expecting even better resolution on the Nexus 7 than I have with the iPad 3's "retina display". To my eye, I don't think it looks as detailed, although I need to run through a more scientific side by critical analysis of the same photos to really be sure. 4) I'd expect better compatibility by now between Google’s Nexus 7 and Google's Chromecast. While its not necessarily fair to comment about Chromecast support on a Nexus review, I'm doing it anyway. There is as of yet no way to even get output from the chrome browser on Nexus to Chromecast because the extension is not supported on Android. You cannot even view your photos stored on your Nexus on your Chromecast device. The implementation of Chromecast on the Nexus is outstanding for Netflix and YouTube. But that’s about the extent of it, well there is Google Music but the album artwork uploaded to the Chromecast is so pixilated that I cannot put it onto my television. Plus, I have not figured out send the picture to my TV but the audio to a separate Bluetooth device. Who wants to listen to music through their TV? This makes Google music of limited use onthe Nexus with Chromecast. There is also Google + but I not played with it much yet. Now for a bit of good news about the Nexus 7. The Bluetooth signal strength is generally superior to that of my Samsung phone or iPad. I can go further distances with the Nexus away from my Bluetooth devices without dropouts using the Nexus. I still (mostly) love the Nexus. I think the pricepoint and features make it a good 7" tablet.

    Tablet is Portable and Easy to Use

    |
    Posted .

    Had the Google Nexus 7 for about a month now and it works well. It is easy to use and has lots of free apps that are available. It works really fast but that means short battery life. So stay close to an AC outlet. But if you get an inverter you can charge it from your car. Other than the battery life the main drawback is that there is only one port and it is just a micro usb port. I got a double ended usb flash drive to use with it and also got a short adapter cable from the Internet. The double ended usb drive gives me more storage space and the adapter cable lets me connect any standard flash drive to the device. Using a flash drive requires installing Total Commander file manager app and Usb Stick Plugin app as they work together to manage flash drives in the Android system.

    Sets a new standard for 7-inch tablets

    |
    Posted .

    I wanted an iPad Mini, but did not like the low screen resolution combined with the high price. And though I love iOS, this geek needed an Android device to stay relevant. The build quality is not that of iPad Mini, but fits better in hand and pants. The battery life is decent, though I was disappointed the battery smaller than the previous generation. This was probably done to make the device thinner. A few cool Nexus features, though useless to me: wireless charging and NFC. The best feature of the device is the amazingly high-resolution screen. The 1200 lines of resolution beat out 1080p TVs ten times the size. And this is all for $229 base price. At first I was impressed, thinking too good to be true. As I feared, the limitations of the device are starting to show. For starters, most of the apps are just phone apps blown up to a tablet screen. This creates blurry, low-quality images. Apple tablets are not like this. Secondly, the lack of a home button made unlocking a pain for me. However, I was able to find a smart cover that automatically unlocks the screen - no easy task compared to the plethora of accessory selection for Apple products. Micro USB is nowhere near as easy to use as Lightning. The plug only works one way, and is hard to plug in. You can forget about plugging this in to charge while driving, lest you risk veering into oncoming traffic. This tablet has real speakers, on both sides of the device in landscape - perfect for watching movies. Apple devices have their "speakers" both on one of the small sides, which is basically mono in most cases. Lastly, 16GB is simply too small for a device that can do so much. Google had an opportunity to make 32GB the default; the gold standard by which other 7-inch tablets are judged. I can't imagine an extra 16GB or the addition of an SD card slot would have been much. I'm holding this more against myself than Google, though, as I was given the chance to upgrade to 32GB for only $40. But you don't realize how much you need it until you need it. To conclude, this tablet is perfect for those wanting a 7-inch tablet and do not require iOS. I feel overall, the product is actually better than $329 iPad Mini. I have even watched countless video reviews of Nexus holding its own against full-size iPads in tests. For Apple to compete, it has to release a retina iPad Mini soon.

    Best 7" Tablet on the Market

    |
    Posted .

    The 2013 Nexus 7 is a great choice (easily the best choice as of 08/23/2013) for anyone looking to buy a 7" tablet. The screen quality is the first thing that blew me away about this tablet--it is a stunning display. It has a full HD display packed into the fairly small 7" screen. This thing has the same pixel count that my 40" TV has: that's insane. The color accuracy, while not perfect, is much better than other Android tablets currently on the market. This new model is slightly thinner and taller than the first generation, which I wasn't sure I'd like, especially switching from a 10" tablet, down to a 7". I was completely wrong; the width is perfect for holding in one hand, making long reading sessions a breeze. I don't enjoy typing on a tablet screen, no matter the size or form factor, but I use a bluetooth keyboard with this tablet and that suits my needs perfectly. I don't currently use a proper word processor, so I can't speak to it's viability as a desktop replacement in that respect, but it works great for email and taking notes during meetings. Some of the updates that came along with the new version of Android really help this tablet shine. I love the new look and feel (I transitioned from a tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich, so it was a big leap), and, most importantly, the speed. This is the first device I've owned that has access to Google Now and I have to say I'm a pretty big fan of it. It's not anything revolutionary, but it's pretty convenient to get real-time information that you are interested in without having to search for it. The only negatives I've run into are pretty nit-picky. At launch, there were no accessories for this device. It took about a month for some half-decent cases and screen protectors to start trickling through. I have both a case and screen protector for my Nexus now, but both are of less-than-stellar quality; I'm not saying they're bad, but I would have preferred to pay more for accessories with a higher build quality. I can't blame the makers of the tablet for that issue, though. What I can blame Asus and Google for is the lack of connections. I'm all about simplicity, but, out of the box, the Nexus 7 has very limited options for connectivity; however, Google released the Chromecast along with this tablet and that takes care of nearly all of these issues. I would highly recommend purchasing a Chromecast along with this device--it will provide a lot of increased functionality and ease-of-use. Overall, this is the best 7" tablet on the market right now. It's comfortable, fast, and cheap and I can't think of a good reason to buy any other Android tablet right now. Disclaimer: I do not use Apple products, I am not part of Apple's ecosystem, and I will not compare this to an Apple product, because there are very few similarities.

    Nice Easy to Use Tablet for a Moderate User

    Posted .

    I have had this tablet for about 2 months now. I am a fairly low tech person. :-) Not a heavy tablet user. This tablet is sufficient for my uses. Reading email, books, playing games, listening to music, watching Netflix. I have an Android phone and this tablet works & navigates the same way. The screen resolution is very clear. I would not recommend this to someone who wanted to use it for work or study or used it much more than I do. I have enjoyed this tablet and would recommend it for someone with the same level of uses as myself.

    Best tablet at this price.

    |
    Posted .

    Over all the Nexus 7 is the best tablet at this price point. I picked up my 16 GB WiFi Nexus 7 for $199 on sale at Best Buy which put it in the same price range as many of the "bargain" tablets on the market. Despite the bargain price, the Nexus 7 feels very solid in your hand. This is not true of many of the comparable "cheap" tablets, some of which feel as if you could easily snap them half. Despite being sturdy, the Nexus 7 is still light enough to allow several hours of use without feeling too heavy in your hand. In addition to the sturdy build and great price, the Nexus 7 has reasonably good screen resolution. While certainly not as good as the iPad Mini, it is non the less very good quality for most uses, especially when you consider it is $100 less than the Mini. The battery life on the Nexus 7 is decent. I typically get 8-9 hours of use on a full charge, with typical usage being e-mail, watching movies, Kindle reader and some games. The front and rear facing cameras are good and have worked without problem. I have used the rear camera for some short videos with good results, and the front camera has worked very well for Skype. Finally, one of my favorite features of the Nexus 7 is the full Google Play store, which is not available on competitors such as the Kindle Fire HDX and others. In addition to the full Play store, the Nexus does NOT include the proprietary interfaces and bloatware included on many of the competing models. In my experience, the proprietary interfaces tend to cause more problems than they solve, and often slow the operation of the tablets. In summary, if you want a bargain priced tablet I would recommend the Nexus 7. It is a great functioning, solid, full featured tablet that DOESN'T include clunky proprietary interfaces or bloatware.

    Great Tablet! Does everything great

    |
    Posted .

    Let me start off by saying it took me a long time to buy a tablet for me, I thought "what do I need that for"? boy why did I wait so long! I use this thing more than I do my laptop now. So here's my review- This is MY first tablet, ( I bought an iPad 4 but someone else gets to use it) LOL! It's also my first foray into Android. I'm loving the tablet! Getting to know Android is refreshing, so much more "control" over your device than what Apple lets you. (I'm not bashing apple, as I've said I have an iPad, iPhone 5 and 4s) I really want a Nexus 5 so I'll be saving up for that. Anyway, back to the Nexus 7. I love the size of it, very easy to hold in one hand whether that's on the couch, at the breakfast table, in bed, or, ahem.. on the throne. ;) Also love the way Google syncs all music and apps, say I download an app on the computer it automatically sends it to the Nexus. The screen is FANTASTIC! Super crisp and clear, The only issues I have with the Nexus is my "newness" to Android and how things work. but that's not the tablets fault. I've barely scratched the surface of what this beauty can do. OK, I'm getting long winded. To sum this review up is to say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS THING! What you get for the price is amazing, If you are in the market for this size tablet do not hesitate to get it. You will be very happy with it.

    Amazing screen resolution and processing speed

    |
    Posted .

    I'm writing this to respond to the large amount of people complaining about the GPS issues. I was surprised to find out that anybody is even using a tablet for GPS. In fact I had never thought to use the GPS, as I would rather use my phone that has active traffic updates, car accident reports, and the ability to re-route to avoid these issues. I tried it and it worked. That being said, if it didn't work, I wouldn't have cared. Like many, I use the tablet for email, web surfing, and letting my kids play games. For those purposes, you simply cannot beat this product. I'm very picky about screen resolution, and this blew me away. The processing speed rips through any internet searching/surfing one needs it to do. Also, the new Android runs very smooth, and I now feel the need to update my phone to have the same Android experience. The battery could be a little better, but that would be my only issue. So if you aren't looking for a giant sized GPS, apparently this is your tablet.

    Great affordable Android tablet

    |
    Posted .

    This tablet was purchased as a gift, but I spent a few days with it to update it and pre-load it with some desired apps. Everything about it is an excellent value. I do have some complaints -- the rear-facing camera is simply serviceable, and there's no expandable storage as is infamous with the Nexus product line -- but at this price point, these aren't things that I feel should impact the product rating. Besides, there is an argument to be made that you shouldn't really be looking to a tablet for your photography needs. Excluding these nitpicks, this is an excellent tablet, and it doesn't get any better for your money. For fans of Android who don't need bleeding edge specs and want a fast, beautiful tablet, I wouldn't recommend anything else (even the brand new Nexus 9, which seems to have its fair share of preliminary issues.)

    Great product at an excellent price

    Posted .

    I got this as a replacement tablet for my wife, who had the 2012 version and ended up spilling a full glass of water on it. While the 2012 version was already a great product and probably the best 7-8" tablet on the market, this version shows a marked improvement. The form factor is noticeably thinner and sleeker. Another great improvement was the addition of a back camera in addition to the one that was already in front. Aside from its great technical specifications, perhaps the best attribute of the Nexus 7 is that it runs Android OS the way it was intended to be run, stripped of any external manufacturer skins or bloatware. Not only that, but its status as a Nexus device puts it at the top of the line of devices receiving updates to new Android versions almost as soon as they come out. The wife is an avid ebook reader and uses it heavily for that purpose, which is great because you aren't limited to one bookseller's ecosystem. She's also very heavy into social media and websurfing, for which it's also great. There's also a lot of good kids games and apps available. It's an incredibly accessible product for anyone, ranging from the tech-savviest of geeks all the way down to the casual user. It accommodates all needs, which makes it the best on the market for it's class.
