Nexus 7: The Best Tablet

Every company that manufactures anything that’s capable of computing seems to have been releasing their own lines of smartphones or tablets. Just when you thought that everything is already out there, a search engine giant releases Nexus 7: fearlessly predicted to Samsung and Apple a run for their money.


Here’s a run-down on what you can expect from gadget farm’s newest produce.

Ports and Aesthetics

Unlike other tablets released during the late 2011 to 2012, Nexus 7 has a micro USB port at its base, which may be used for both data transfer and charging. Its top has a3.5 mm earphone socket, which can also accommodate a 3.5 mm line-in microphone. The Nexus 7 might not be the slimmest tablet out there with a thickness of 10.5 mm, but it is definitely one of the lightest ones: weighing only 340 grams.

It’s as heavy as a 700-page standard size paperback. With neatly trimmed sides and curves and a dimpled back, techies will find this gadget very easy on the grip despite hours of usage; and kind of slip resistant too.

Screen Resolution

With true HD capabilities, courtesy of Asus, you will be deeply satisfied at how Nexus 7 produces vibrant and ambient textures on its screen. Considering the price, you will definitely get more than what you had bargained for. Nexus 7 also produces fairly good off-axis views. On screen texts are smooth and crisp. The multi touch controls are responsive all shades of colors, including black, are obviously bolder.

Camera and Photo Quality

It may surprise some but Nexus 7 doesn’t have a camera at the back. Gadget-manufacturing giants opt to have front and rear-facing cameras in their tablets, but the people behind Nexus 7 chose to have its only camera situated at the front. The front-facing camera is a 1.2 megapixel snapper suitable enough for close up visuals during Skype video calls. Tablets are not recommended to be used as everyday cameras, so most gadget consumers certainly don’t mind.

Latest Android Version: Jelly Bean

Another edge over the competition would be the inclusion of Jelly Bean in the mix. Being the latest android version,Jelly Bean is faster, slicker and has a much smoother user interface than Ice Cream Sandwich. Jelly Bean paved the way for the release of Google Now, which is noted to be the most anticipated app of the year.

Google Now enables Nexus 7 users to have “presumptive information”. You may input your meal plan week per week and it will tell you the ingredients needed and how to cook those dishes in advance. You can schedule a trip a month from now and before the actual trip, Google Now will tell you the modes of transportation available, how to get there and how much is needed to be spent to get there.


Google did a good job in deciding to tie up with Asus in the manufacturing of Nexus 7. With an NVidia Tegra 3 processor, you can run and browse through almost all apps and sites with ease. You can throw any high definition movies and multi task in between programs and Nexus 7 will still work like a charm.

Nexus is available in 8 GB and 16 GB models. Internal speakers function well even if the bass is set all the way up to the maximum level. Battery life is impressive as well. It can go on until a maximum of 5-6 hours of straight internet browsing, playing and multitasking. On top of the various third partycasings available for Nexus 7, there are also extra batteries, which may be purchased separately.

For the people who are looking for an alternative tablet that can match the most expensive tablets from Apple and Samsung, Nexus 7 is the best alternative. Nexus 7 is not as pricey as the other high-end brands, but it functions just as well and more.
