    I just recently got my nexus 7, so for me to write a full review is not really fair but let me give my first impressions since this product is new and people would like a fresh perspective before buying one. I am quite the android enthusiast. I have only used android smartphones and I have had the first galaxy tab from Samsung so I know a little about how the interface is and I know what irks me about the interface. Since I only got this today I can only give a preliminary review. I bought this device for school, mostly to carry my textbooks and read some book through Amazon's kindle app. It works brilliantly for that, the compactness makes it very easy to carry around. The battery life is adequate but from my usage of it, the battery seems to drain rather quickly. As I understand it, the battery in this second gen nexus 7 has a smaller battery than the first one, but that can be accounted for by the reduction in weight and the new nexus being slightly, but noticeably, smaller than its predecessor. The display is what attracted me most to this device, but this could be its weakest point also. There is something about the display that makes Youtube and Netflix feel a little strange. It could be the aspect ratio but I'm not sure about that. Like almost every smartphone/tablet, this thing is a finger magnet. I don't think it's fair to rate this product down for that since almost every smartphone/tablet has that problem, so I won't rate it down because of that. The size of the display is wonderful if you're looking for something small and portable. The 10.1 inch display on my Galaxy Tab was a bit too big for me to carry around everywhere. This 7 inch display is perfect for my purposes and works like it should. I think this is one of those products that you should definitely try before you actually buy though. I am a android enthusiast so I have gotten used to the interface rather quickly. Other people who have used apple products or windows products may not like the interface as much, but I have gotten used to it. The interface is not without its flaws, but I'm sure developers will be coming out with new ROMs that will remedy the flaws. For this price point, it is difficult to find anything better. I have used Amazon's tablet before, but I personally prefer the Nexus to that. Kind of sucks that Amazon has prevented android users from using the Instant Video feature, but I'm sure work-a-rounds are already going to be coming out for this device in due time. If you're looking for a tablet to use for college and travel, this may be the tablet for you. **This review is for the WIFI only 32GB Second Generation Nexus 7. If you're looking for the LTE version, that will be coming out in a couple weeks for 350. **I know someone is going to bring up this issue so I'll address it before I post this review. The previous Nexus 7 did not have a microSD slot, so why are people complaining about that? You should have seen that coming, and for this price point it cannot be expected. If you need more space go for the 32GB like I did. And Also, the available space you can use for a 32GB is a little over 26 GB. This is probably due to some of the drive being used for the Android interface and some of it being taken from just being formatted. If you've ever formatted a computer you know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Great overall but lost a star for nonworking GPS

    Posted

    Would give it a 3.5 stars truth be told but can't do half stars. Problems: 1) GPS People's problem with GPS is not consistent. You'll read on the Google product support any variations of this: -GPS stops working after 30+ minutes but works again if you restart your tablet whenever GPS can't get a lock. -Returned tablet for 07-2013 mfg date and it works fine now -Returned tablet for 07-2013 mfg date and still has problems -New Google Play Services update fixed the GPS issue -Contacted Google support they are aware of issue and say it is a software issue and not a hardware issue -People wanting to sue -Forum posters being accused of working for Asus or Google to get the problem downplayed on the forums -People saying GPS is useless on tablets when they don't understand why some users are using it (Geosafari research etc.) -Lots of complaints about GPS I personally got the first release batch and at first the GPS was completely nonexistent. After the Google Play Services update, my GPS seemed to be working but then died after 4+ hour of use (not consistent, 20-40 minute here and there). Had to restart the tablet before it would work again. Needless to say, the GPS has issues. It can't keep a lock. I am hoping Google announces something about a fix before I submit an RMA or just use my Best Buy Warranty to swap it in the future. 2) Multitouch I personally have not had any multitouch issues, but people on the forums have been saying double letter clicking to using touch screen app to test and it went sporadic. While I had this happen, I just uninstalled an app and the problem disappeared. I think Android 4.3 is too new and is expected to have app issues so I am not deducting a star for this as it was expected having the latest OS. 3) While the speakers are good, I prefer using my bluetooth speaker for louder sound. However, I noticed that there is an occasional slight delay on what the person says on the tablet vs. the sound coming out. This never happened to me with my Kindle Fire HD. 4) Wish the charger cord was longer. 5) I never understood why the cameras always suck on tablets. Can someone please put an 8 MP with a good sensor to block noise out front camera for skype? Why is it always 1.3 or 2, never higher lol. Back camera is mediocre, has a lot of noise too. Convenient to take pictures of lectures or charts in book though, but I wish they would have a better camera. 6) Stylus for some reason doesn't work well with this screen. But I'm not going to deduct a star for this, if you wanted a stylus tablet the best option is the Samsung Galaxy Note series. What is Great -Screen Resolution is amazing. Sometimes it is way too bright. There are other tablets with vivid colors so it looks very colorful, but this one looks very sharp and perfect "standard" to me and I like that more than vivid. Vivid looks too fake to me, but then again it depends on the person which preference they have. -Can install stock browser and flash. Check out XDA forums with instructions, it works well! Flash video looks crisp on this tablet. Seriously who said flash was gone, Amazon Instant still uses flash. -Easy to hold. I love that it is easy and light to hold with one hand vertically and if I wanted to hold it landscape, there are black bezels large enough for me to grip and not touch the screen. -Sound is great, not better than Amazon Kindle Fire HD but still great. -Always get the latest updates first! Love that about stock Google products. -Battery is surprisingly good for the small mAh size. Overall, if they fix the GPS issue and the bluetooth sound lag this would be easily 5 stars. Until that happens, the only tablet better than this one is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (but that has a flaw of not a high screen resolution). Hope my review helped!

    Loved by Grad Student in the Sciences

    I am a grad student and my laptop is a 17in Sony Vaio that is like 5-6 years old now. With the charger and my case and stuff it weights like 30-40 pounds. As a grad student I have to go to a lot of meetings where I need a computer, usually spread out across campus. Carrying my laptop was quite the burden. Another big important change: laptop gets 40 mins of battery life (brand new replacement battery too), Nexus 7 I charge like once a week. After a ten hour consortium meeting i find the Nexus battery to still be like 60% charged. The Nexus 7 has all but eliminated the need for me to have to take my computer with me to meetings. The difference between 40 pounds worth of laptop and this device was amazing. All I take with me now is the Nexus and a notepad. Still have to haul the computer when I give presentations. I have two downsides with the tablet, but these same gripes you can find in almost every review on the internet: 1) lack of replaceable battery and 2) no expandable storage. The other things I wish it would do is hook up to a VGA projector with a decent Power Point presentation software (I've used the iPad office apps and they are far superior for giving a presentation). This is mostly a software issue with Android in general. I have not found an office suite that meets my needs. The other area where software is lacking is in mathematical software. Matlab has a cloud based solution, but I don't find it particularly useful. Mathematica as well as good lab software are completely absent from any app store I have found. Also I have not found a good calculator that can do complicated operations. All of the calculator and computing apps I have tried have sucked and are not worth the effort. have not tried the Python interpreter for Android, but looks like programming on a touch screen would suck. As this is my first tablet, I really don't know if these software issues are better on iOS or not, except for Power Point type stuff. The iPad works way better as a presentation device. Besides that, I love the tablet. If more scientific software becomes available I could easily permanently replace my laptop with this device. (Are you listening software developers? I would give you money for good Nexus 7 scientific programs!) I also still use a desktop for computationally intensive tasks, but could easily see this tablet replacing all my mobile needs. ~~~~~ More about me so you can see how it fits into my life: Job: Grad student at a university in Chemical Physics and high-performance computing. I also own: HTC One (2013), Beast of a desktop computer (8-Core, 16 GB Ram, 4 Video Cards) Old laptop used mostly as a research storage / presentation device.

    Almost Perfect...

    After one week of use, I am very happy with the tablet and I recommend it for sure, but there's a couple of things you should know before you buy. First, the negatives: Don't even think about the 16 GB if you want to store photos, music or video. The OS (operating system) takes up about 8 GBs on its own, so you will have very little space for media if you go with the 16 GB version. The default music and video player, well, they suck big time so unless you're a big fan of frustration, you will need to download something like MX Video Player and Rocket AudioPlayer. Also, the camera app is pretty much bare bones, I checked out a series of camera and decided on two - FX Camera Zoom and - for fun - Paper Camera. Last in the negative column is the power on/off and volume keys - the designers have made a beautiful device but, due to the beveled shape, the function of those two keys really is lacking. If you put the device in any sort of case, it makes powering on and changing volume an irritating feat, so consider yourself alerted. The good stuff: The Nexus 7 is really beautiful and easy to use, it's elegant user interface is simple to use and the built-in "Google Now" app is fun, functional and easy to use. Also, the swipe style keyboard is the best out there. There's some excellent apps and I've really come to enjoy the Newstand feature. I also recommend downloading the USA Today app as it allows you to download content to read later when you don't have Wi-Fi access. My favorite aspect about the device however is using Chromecast and streaming video to my TV via the Chromecast device which is a remarkably cheap one-time cost of $35. We've streamed video from Netflix and YouTube directly from the tablet and it works great. Enjoy.

    I am about a month into my ownership of the 2013 Nexus 7 (N7) and loving it. If you have a Google account and you use Gmail this tablet is the absolute best. It's like having everything accessible at a single button press. No waiting for Windows or MacOS to boot up - just tap the wake button, swipe the screen to unlock, and you're right into your email and documents with absolutely no fuss. Probably the biggest improvement for me (over the first gen N7) has been the screen resolution. I enjoy playing Minecraft with my daughter and the upgrade in the amount of screen real estate is wonderful. I can see twice as much of the environment on screen at once than I could with the first gen N7 (note, however, that this is not what happens on all apps - most are not resolution dependent like Minecraft). It also makes social media like Instagram, Facebook, and Google+ come alive with the higher resolution and snappy performance. The front facing camera is another great addition but it's not going to win any awards. The camera on my HTC One smartphone is better than this one, but it is serviceable. As for negatives, I scratched the screen on my first gen N7 very early on so I was very careful not to do the same with this one. Just one month in, and having never dropped it or used anything uncommon to clean the screen it already has a noticable scratch. I highly suggest a clear screen protector for it. I have also had some minor sound issues with it that clear up with a power off/power on as well as some glitches and freezes that required restarts. But overall I'm very happy with it and highly recommend it if you need an easy, light, device for getting online. I haven't use my laptop once since I got it!

    This is my second Nexus7 2013 unit. I returned the first one to best buy because the GPS stopped working and I love the device and upgraded to the 32gb version. Its weird but the second one is built with different material on the back (its much nicer than the 16gb I had originally. Also the power adapter is different- this one doesn't get warm at all when charging the tablet. It also had 70% charge out of the box unlike the original unit that was completely dead out of the box! This one also types noticeably better, its more accurate. So far, the only problem has been launching Chrome. Everytime is would crash with an error "chrome unexpectedly quit" weird. So I reinstalled it and its working great. But seriously, out of the box it crashes?? Another difference with this one, the update to 4.3 at the beginning was smoother. And the camera is definitely focusing faster. I still think the average User would return the Nexus 7 2013 because let's face it, we shouldn't be the beta testers for Asus and esp Google!! Overall I am very pleased with the device, I really needed a tablet much lighter than my iPad 4 - it was causing severe elbow,arm & hand pain. The Nexus 7 is light as a feather, and the HD Screen must be seen to be appreciated! (BTW the Nexus7 on display at best buy didn't work at all and all of the displayed tablets were grimy and dirty, covered with fingerprints)

    Hands down the best 7" tablet out there

    • My Best Buy® Member

    This is my first tablet and I am very impressed with the performance of the nexus 7. I held off on a tablet for years because of the limitations tablets faced versus a traditional computer. About a year ago the 7" tablet market started to intrigue me. I wanted something small and fast to take care of my light internet browsing, email checking, youtubing, and to show off my photos with. Overall the 2nd generation nexus 7 looked as if it could do all so I purchased it and to my luck it can do all that and more. Both android jelly bean and the new android kitkat are highly customizable and super easy to use. Web browsing speeds on chrome are blazing fast that are comparable to my MacBook Pro. Anytime I am going to a friends or going to work it is now my goto and is small and light as a feather in my backpack with a slip case. The screen resolution is absolutely excellent, trumping the 1st gen ipad mini and can be called comparable to the 2nd gen mini with retina. Overall I use my Nexus everyday and I could not be happier with it at a price that is a true bargain. With technology "cheap" and "good" usually don't exist in the same sentence, but here it does!

    Excellent tablet without a bunch of sales apps.

    The Nexus 7 has an excellent screen, and is very fast. Part of that speed is that unlike Samsung or most other Android tablets, Google does not bloat the Nexus with unnecessary apps. Most of those unnecessary apps are sales wear, and try to force you to Samsung's (or other companies) sales sites. The Nexus does come with quite a few excellent apps preinstalled. Some of the apps are indeed intended to get you to their marketplace, but they are not intrusive and they do not slow down the machine by operating constantly even when you shut them off. The buttons on the Nexus 7 are convenient, and the whole process of use strikes me as very simple and fast. There is a bit of a learning curve because Android allows you to do things that Windows and Apple do not. This can be very useful, but it also leaves you open to making mistakes and messing things up. One issue with the tablet is that the touchscreen sometimes appears to be unresponsive. It responds well enough, but sometimes repeated taps have been necessary.

    I bought this specifically to dual boot between Android and Ubuntu Touch. So the fist thing I did was unlock the boot loader and root the device. (I strongly recommend that anyone that buys any smartphone or tablet to learn how to root the devices). It dual boots between the two OS's without a problem and once rooted all of the bloat that comes pre-installed can be removed. I really like the rubbery feel back to it, this doesn't feel like I'm going to drop it like I do with most tablets. The screen quality is noticeable better than my Galaxy 10.1 original, much better. It is also faster. It seems to load apps quickly and does not lag or stutter. (but then I don't have it filled with apps like my 10.1 either. Battery life is not that great. I'm not sure why they put in a smaller battery between the original N7 and the 2013 model but it shows. With just some moderate use a couple of hours/day I have to recharge the batter every other day. The speakers are in the back but they sound very good for a tablet. They sound better than my Note 10.1 front facing speakers. The Good: -Screen quality -Fast -Size (you can slip in a jacket pocket) -Easy to hold on to -Pre-loaded with Kit Kat 4.3 upgradable to 4.4.2 The Bad -Locked boot loader, (but everyone does this now a days). -Loaded with bloatware that I would never use, (this was solved by rooting the device). -Battery life is just so so -No expandable memory

    Best Nexus 7 Yet

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    The "New Nexus 7" (2013) is just better than last years model by far. From the moment you pick it up, the device is much lighting and thinner than the previous generation. I do miss the faux leather backing which made the original soft such a pleasure to hold. (Replaced by a soft touch plastic) Upon powering the device on, you are blown away by this display .... Color saturation is much better than the previous generation, display resolution has also been improved 720 p to 1080 p and all this in a thinner lighter chassis. My only complaint with this device ... And I'm hoping it is just a firmware issue ... Is that when using the multitouch feature (meaning more than one finger on the display at one time), it tends to freeze the screen for a second or two). This is especially annoying when you are trying to play a game or pinch to zoom fast. Other than that .... Battery life is amazing ... Full day easy with real use! Display side by side with the nexus first generation is clearly improved in every way. The Snapdragon processor seems much faster than the tegra 3 used in the last gen .... And a rear camera was added (5 mp) with ok quality. For a starting price of 229 ... There is nothing better in the price range. The chrome browser upper search bar portion now disappears once a website is fully loaded and so the entire 7 inch real estate is shown while web browsing which is also another real bonus!

    DontChanceitwithLG

    I really like my Nexus. I got the 32 GB which should be plenty of space for me, so I don't care that it does not have a card slot. No 7-8" tablet is much good for "work" such as word or data processing as the screen is just too small (IMO you need about 12" minimum for that). I use a desktop PC for these things, with a much larger screen. However, it's great for email, web surfing, watching movies and videos, and other such online "consumption." I also use it as an e-reader. For me it's better than a Kindle since it is color and does everything else. See http://www.spanishwaterburycenter.com/learning/technology.html#eread2 for an article about where to buy e-books. I also can type way faster with the Swype keyboard option, which is not available for Apple devices. As a Google device, it gets the Android updates before the other devices. I also did not want the extra stuff that Samsung has added onto Android. I will say that my iPhone 5 works perfectly concerning touch whereas with the Nexus I sometimes find myself poking at it more than once before it reacts. The Nexus is my go-to device for a quick check of email or anything else online.

    I was impressed the second I turned on the Nexus 7 (2013). The display exceeds anything I have used before. The absence of bloatware with Jellybean 4.3 makes apps run like a breeze with its awesome processor. And for less than $250.00? Super! Google Play is easy to navigate and the variety of apps is good. However....when I went to use a mapping app...the bugs began to come out. The GPS kept losing its "lock" on location - all of the sudden the device couldn't "find" itself. I rebooted, the GPS worked for about ten minutes, and then the signal was gone. I did some research on the forums, and sure enough, this was a known issue. I was one of the last to get the OTA update, which was very annoying. Google should know better than to let something this basic get by them -- Google Maps is a big deal, but how well can it work if the GPS keeps losing its location? Since the OTA update installed a couple of hours ago, I've had one of the other mapping apps running, and the location has not been lost. So far so good. This still does not excuse Google for issuing a new tablet with such a software defect. I will not ever try to get anything Google releases so quickly again --- lesson learned.

    good tab but still a few quirks

    my1stnexustab

    i bought this over the asus memo pad hd 7 due to its better specs and google updateability(my word). the tab run everything i thru at it. the camera is ok for picture taking but video recording in good lighting is better. i have had it for 2 weeks now and i had 2 main issues with it. 1. the screen fails to respond in areas sometimes and i have to press the same area multiple times. this happens occasionally when typing or playing my fave game sparkle. my low end galaxy y duos phone touch screen is much better since i've never gotten this issue with it. 2. i had apps stop responding/failing while being used. again this doesn't happen often. i think about 4 times since i had the tab. these crashes occur in chrome, yahoo mail and when the tab sleeps in a game of sparkle( when i close the case when interrupted). i can put my phone to sleep in a game of sparkle then awake and i would resume the game. however, with the tab the game doesn't respond. the issue with sparkle surprised me because the hardware on the tab is superior to that on my cheap phone. i am thinking it may be an UI issue. i don't use the gps for guidance while on the road so i cant attest to issue using it that way. i do use it via wifi to find destinations and a route to arrive (bus, train,). the tab still works good. i'm enjoying it for the most part.

    This is my first real tablet, having used a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a year and a half (love it!). I bought the 2nd gen Nexus 7 because I'm taking a class on Android programming in C#. I use the tablet as a reader and will soon be using it on my new job. Got a bluetooth kb/case and really like this combination. I'm an older user (50s) and have some stiffness in my fingers and right hand. I find the volume control and power button a bit painful to press and hard to feel. They seem to be too thin. It would be helpful if they were either located in a different location or easier to feel and to press. I don't like them at all, but I know the thinness of the case determines some of this. Overall, I love this tablet and will be buying one for my wife shortly.

    I'm bought this the day it came out I'm also coming from an iPad. So far the only thing I miss from the iPad is FaceTime and the clarity of the video on FaceTime. Other then that this device is my new every day tablet. Great device for; reading, gaming surfing the web and outdoor photos. Unfortunately if you have big hands I'd wait for the Nexus 10 to come out, my hands tend to cramp up from holding it for a while because of the size of my hands. Fast and very snappy response from the processor. the battery life easily lasts 24hrs+ with out a charge. haven't tested that out with games but I heavily use this tablet surfing the web, reading, music etc and got more the 24hrs+ with a single charge. Front facing Camera is great for outdoor use, indoor and low light conditions forget it. If you are in any sort of low light condition while taking a photo so much noise will show up in your photo it's ridiculous! I highly recommend this tablet for, reading, using it for recipes in the kitchen, music, surfing, gaming so far it's been a Great device for me.

    Tablet is Great. Some Apps Stopped Working

    Posted
    techguy1986

    Compared to the 1st gen Nexus, this Nexus rocks. It is smooth as silk. Everything runs well and there is no noticeable slow down as the 1st gen Nexus often had. The screen is great. It is hands down the best out there and when apps are updated to support the higher res screen it will be a thing of beauty. That is the one problem with the Nexus 7 and something all buyers of this product should be aware of. App developers need to update their apps. It is not acceptable to have outstanding hardware and have apps that will not work on the new device. Some of the apps that no longer work are MLB TV and CNBC real time. Come on app developers get with the program and fix your apps. Other apps out there have issues as well I am sure. Those need to be fixed immediately and this tablet will earn the top rating in my book because it is a great tablet and an outstanding upgrade.

    Having owned an 8" tablet and using various 10" tablets at work, I found they all had some nice features but were a little uncomfortable to hold. I decided to buy this Nexus 7 inch and have been satisfied by my choice. This tablet has a great screen, sleek design, good sound and a good price. I do wish that I could add additional storage through an SD/micro SD card, however, that isn't a deal breaker for me. Best of all is the uncluttered experience of a true stock Android experience. I never realized how much extra garbage is added by the various manufacturers until being able to use a tablet that comes with an operating system made the way it was supposed to be used. Overall a great tablet. Don't hesitate to get this one.

    I was eagerly awaiting this new Google Nexus 7, as I read rumors about its pending arrival. I wanted a smaller tablet primarily for web surfing and reading e-books. The resolution on this tablet is incredible and it is very fast! It's very thin and light, comfortable to hold. E-books are easy to read. It is also quite reasonably priced compared to other small tablets. The iPad Mini with comparable storage (32 GB), costs more than $100 more. Our family has an iPad, which is nice, but I like the Android ecosystem. Only drawbacks are occasionally when I click a link, it doesn't register. I have used one of the multi-touch screen test apps and I don't have jitter or dead pixel issues. It happens rarely enough that it is a minor annoyance. Overall, I am very happy with the value and performance of the tablet, and would recommend it to others.

Past the avg useful life for most tablets, and was dropped numerous times - No expandable memory, but same as most tablets Conclusion The value for this product pr its price cannot be beat. It is still going strong, January 2017.I have put this thing through the ringer, had to do a MacGyver on it a couple of times, but minor fixes brought it back where other tablets would have died long ago. Even in 2017, it stands on its own against new budget tablets today. Enough to have me eagerly waiting for the next iteration before I upgrade.

    I know there are many people who are complaining about their units having problems with GPS; however, that is not why I purchased it and I'm not going to comment further on it other than hopefully, there will be solution soon to fix the glitch. Overall, I am pleased with it. It is super fast, the screen resolution is absolutely fantastic and I haven't had any issues with the touch screen responsiveness or lack of there. I do find the size a little odd but in that same statement, it is easy to fit in my purse. Setup was a breeze and after the updates, we were up and running. We have both android and iOs platforms in our household and both ecosystems have their pros and cons and I don't feel one is necessarily superior to the other. What works for me, may not work for you but we find this unit to suit our needs well. The price point is excellent. Overall, I would recommend, especially to someone purchasing their first tablet or those with little technology background.
