"A nice 7" tablet that gets the job done"3.5 starson by thisistheslam
Pros: Very nice, vivid, HD screen. Right size. Premium look. 32GB of internal storage. Android 4.1 upgradable to 4.2 out of the box. Solid battery performance. Decent speakers for 7" configuration.
Cons: Android still hasn't wowed me. No expandable storage option. Screen is not built for direct sunlight. Screen isn't very durable (scratches easily). Wasn't easy to find the 32GB internal-storage option.
Summary: If you have no other tablets, the Nexus 7 is a delightful little portable device to suit your simple needs. Email, web browsing, apps, music, and video all do well. The problem still remains on Android as an OS. You can't do a lot of things you should be able to do: Flash, true productivity, real multitasking, approachable navigation, spam/spyware protection out of the box, expand the storage. When I get down to it, I realize I'm not happy with either the iPad or the Nexus tablet. Android has improved over the last year greatly, but that only means it runs a little better and looks a little nicer. I love the choice with Android, which is why I avoided the higher priced iPad Mini or iPad tablet. But when I got a Surface, I realized I didn't have any viable need for the Nexus, which is why I'm likely ditching it to get some money back. It's good, but not the best you can get. However, if price is the biggest dictator for where you money goes, the Nexus 7 does feel premium enough to warrant your cash. It felt better than the Galaxy Tab 2 7" that I had prior to it.
