2013 Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet Review – Same Name, Big Improvements
15 October 2013
Excerpt: The 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 has been available for a couple of months; I recently decided to make the leap from a 10″ tablet to this 7″ beauty. While there isn’t a new name, I have to say Google has done a great job refining this popular tablet.
Cons: It almost needs a new name so you can more easily differentiate between this and the previous Nexus versions
Conclusion: The original Nexus 7 was a genuine game-changer - an Android tablet that was reasonably priced and offered incredible power and a version of Google's OS which actually worked properly on a large-screen device.
Excerpt: It was a bit of a wait, but the 32 GB version of Google’s 2013 Nexus 7 refresh is finally available in Canada, and I got my hands on one. I’ve been using it heavily for the past week and a half or so, and I am completely in love.
Summary: The 2nd-gen Nexus 7 is, without a doubt, much better than the old one. From the form factor to the hardware, all aspects of the tablet have been improved. New technologies like LTE and Qi have also been incorporated and the shortcomings of the older model have been fulfilled.
Conclusion: The Nexus 7 is likely the highest performing tablet on the market. On paper it looks amazing and in real world circumstances, gets the job done. I firmly recommend this device, if you ever had a cheap $100 Walmart tablet or something by Aluratek, you owe it yourself to get this.
Pros: Killer Processor, High Resolution, Good Battery Life, Android 4.3 is all you can ask for, Videos and Audio quality is solid, Rear Facing Camera, 5 MP
Cons: Most comics, manga and magazines not optimized for high resolution, Fairly Expensive at $259, Availability is low right now, NO SD, Front Facing camera at 1.3 is still rather low
