Asus Nexus 7 + Mobile

Verge Review

I've owned too many tablets over the last three years, and not a single one has had cellular connectivity. I've always bought the Wi-Fi model because I don't want to pay for extra data, I don't want to be beholden to yet another data plan or contract, and don't I already have this great phone in my pocket that can do all the things my tablet does? And that will tether to my tablet if I really need it? So when I started playing with the Nexus 7 with mobile data (which I'll call the Nexus 7...

    I bought my Nexus 7 32GB from Staples after returning a Samsung Galaxy Tab. The Nexus 7 is a clear improvement over the Galaxy Tab. That's not to say that the Galaxy Tab is a terribly tablet, but with ICS (4.2) software update out of the gate, I enjoy the performance much more. However, it's still an Android tablet, which means that it's good for little more than random apps, internet, and email. A good tablet it is, but now that I have a Surface, I'm underwhelmed by iPads and Android tablets when it comes to functionality. I'll hold on to it for a little longer, but I'm anticipating getting rid of my Nexus 7 in the next month or two. The display is both great and not so great. Good color vibrance, but barely visible in well-lit areas, especially sunlight. It's also prone to scratches. Within a week of purchasing, I had a light surface scratch on the glass just from leaving it in my car and carrying it in my pocket. My guess is keys or leaving it face-down too often open it up to damage. So if you do buy one, get a screen protector or be careful with it. It's probably the best 7" tablet to buy, especially with the price @ $249.99 (WiFi) and $299.99 (data-enabled). But the other side of the coin is that performance problems DO exist. Android offers a lot and it's better than ever before. However hangups and crazy UI design still happen too often. I don't know if Google has what it takes to iron this stuff out. If they do, I can't see Android becoming a consistently smooth and user-friendly OS for a couple more years. The hardware is only as good as its software.

    Its got all the good things, like price,design,battery but its sucks hardly when it comes to app, can you imagine running500k+apps which were designed for 4-4.7 inch displays on a 7 inch tablet?

    Any wonder's on why am switching to iPad Mini? Its worth a switch with 275k+ tablet apps under $330. Apple wins and Google Wins Here too :)
