It seems like every time you turn around these days, there’s a new tech product launching. How are you supposed to keep up with it all? I mean, who has time to read every review out there? Well, lucky for you we’ve done the research for you. We pulled multiple reviews together into one, quick overview for you. You’re welcome.
• Cost: $200 for 8GB, $250 for 16GB
• Overall Look and Feel: The Nexus is sleek and smooth, with a leathery back to keep it from slipping right out of your hands. It’s light as well, roughly half of the weight of the iPad, so it’s easy to tote around. The Google Nexus 7 LCD screen is…what else but…7-inches. The 1280×800 IPS touch screen is sans retina display, but we’re ok with that.
• Hardware and Functionality: This Android device is well-designed and comes with powerful hardware, thanks to Asus. The tablet responds smoothly to touch, even when scrolling, playing games and even HD movies, thus rivaling the iPad. The battery life is pretty good, coming in at about 7.5 hours (assuming you’re not streaming the full TOTR trilogy) under normal user scenarios.
• Other Perks and Notable Mentions: The tablet comes with voice- command search, has a 1.2-megapixel camera (front-facing only), and boasts the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean system. Overall, the device is very user-friendly.
After reading the Google Nexus 7 reviews and ratings, we feel that this is a great device for anyone looking for an affordable, quality tablet that can fit most purses, messenger bags, and even perhaps your pocket. Word on the street is that the Nexus 7 might just be the best tablet thus far. And, starting at $200 for the 8GB, it’s a great deal. Final thought: Don’t forget to insure it.
