Nexus 7 32GB from Google™ (2012)
OK but get the 2013 model
I liked this tablet until 4.4.2 came out... then, the tablet kept saying the CPU usage was 85% and 60-80% of the ram is used for the OS! i was also disappointed that there was no camera on the back of the tablet as I expected, and if you crack it, its a total loss (buy a new one because screen replacements are $150-175)
"Bang for your buck"
This is a great tablet running with really good hardware. Some people complain about no rear camera but almost everyone has a smart phone to take photos. Great screen resolution,Very fast processor for new advanced games on google play, And great for browsing web ect.....
Best for your money for this size.
I had tried many tablets before buying this one, whether friends' or in a store, but this one stood out right off the bat. I even tried an iPad to be fare, using it for a week. Still went with this for several reasons. The build quality is very sturdy. The screen is amazingly clear. Even in bright light, it is still visible with the auto brightness feature turned on. This thing is fast, too! Paired with a decent wi-fi signal, and I see NO lag with websites or even video streaming. The battery has lasted me 10-22 hours depending on usage - I actually had to watch back to back episodes on Netflix before noticing anything different. The only thing I was slightly disappointed with was the screen cracking, but that took someone knocking it out of my hands forcefully for that to happen (ie normal drop it was fine). The PRP I bought took care of that though, so overall AWESOME! I have had this since December 2012 and haven't looked back. The fact that it also fits in my cargo pocket is great as well. I have not seen anything that the iPad could do that this couldn't, other than take pictures - who really wants to hold a massive screen up and possibly block other people's views just to take a picture when a phone camera or regular point and shoot would do fine? The only real complaint I had compared to some other tablets was the lack of accessories (dedicated music doc, etc) and HDMI. Small price to pay for this fine piece of hardware.
Best Tablet for Travel
When I first got my nexus 7 i was hype. It took me literally on hour to figure the whole thing out. It has a better app store than apple too. Apples apps are mostly to demos if they're free! But when it comes to the nexus almost all of the best apps are free. It also has a great WiFi connector. the picture is extremely sharp too. It gets pictures to the last pixel. The only flaw is there is no camera in the back. TOTALLY BETTER THAN THE KINDLE PRODUCTS!!!!!!!!
A great Tablet, I get a good connection with the wi-fi. Pictures are clear and crisp. No slowdowns. It is a great tablet.
This tablet is by far the best and fastest tablet i have ever owned. I just came off of apple products to android and i have to say i am enjoying them much more because of the freedom and flexibility of android. I would defiantly recommend this to a friend or family member.
Well I've always wanted an iPad. But today I just decided to buy the nexus 7 and give it a try. And I'm so glad i did. its a wonderful piece of machinery. It not the biggest tab out there but what it lacks in size it makes up with fluidity and smoothness. I honestly couldn't be more satisfied. I've only had it for one day and I love it. Plus it pretty cheap for a tab. Great job Google. Makes me not mind that it runs on a android os so much. Definitely recommend. And one last thing I've been using for about 3 hours now and the battery still going strong. Get it!!!
Unstable OS and horrible customer support by Asus
I received this product as a gift for my birthday in August. I was really looking forward to this tablet and was very happy to get my hands on it. I loved it for the first two months that I used it until I had to upgrade the OS. Since then I've had to send this piece of garbage in three times now to be able to use it and every time I received it from Asus it was in worse shape than when I sent it in. It is so bad now that I just got it back a few days ago and haven't been able to turn it back on at all even after letting it charge for two full days. Save your money and get an Ipad, and I'm saying this as someone who thinks that an Ipad is overpriced. At least with the Ipad I know it would have worked. This is also just a review of the product and not Gamestop in anyway. I've never had any issues with Gamestop's service and continue to use them for my gaming purchases.
I don't usually do the review thing,but I felt like the Nexus 7 deserves one.If you're thinking about getting a tablet,I definitely recommend you give this one a look.This little guy is fast,has a sharp,clear picture.Games and video look great.It's great to have when you're on the road,don't have access to a computer,don't feel like dragging out out your laptop,or whatever.Skip the extra expense of an iPad,more bang for your buck here.One more thing,get the 32GB,you'll be happy you did!
WOW by far the best collaboration...
I usually don’t write reviews but this tablet is just out of its league. for starters the 32GB for 249 is a killer price, you won’t find a tablet this size that can compete with the Nexus 7, the rubberized back plate is perfect but I do recommend getting the Asus Travel cover being that its fits real snug to the device and also protects your screen it’s a MUST HAVE. For those who don’t know Asus to me makes the best tablets in the world, paired with Google and they have a GEM. It’s the perfect size, plays game flawlessly but I do recommend getting the games that are recommended for the tablet to fully see the power of Tegra 3. I have no complaints other than it does not have a Micro SD card slot so that why I got the 32 GB. if your thinking of getting the 16gb version PLEASE don’t and just shell the extra money on this one, cause it’s better to have more space then to just out of space then later on down the road you will kick yourself for not getting the 32gb, I know this cause its happened to me in the past lol. One thing many people don’t know. being that this tablet is a Google tablet but made by Asus you won’t have to worry about if your device will ever get to see the newest android unlike other devices that take 1 year to update their tablets Google is almost always updating their OS as soon as a new one comes out. So think no more, get the tablet and join hundreds if not thousands who have got this tablet, because it will not disappoint and you just cant beat that price...hope this review helps make your mind...( english is not my first language lol so sorry for any grammar or errors, but im sure you will understand what im trying to say )
