New Nexus 7 Review
I’m an Apple fan, however i was actually pretty enthusiastic about testing the Nexus 7. Developed in collaboration with ASUS, Google has repeated with the similar name, Nexus 7, to its 2013 edition also. A key benefit concerning the tablet: It packs among the latest edition of the Android operating system. Additionally it has wonderful technical specs and costs lower than Apple’s iPad Mini by having Retina Display. Unlike most 7-inch tablets in portrait mode, which are uncomfortable to carry in single hand, the Nexus 7 easily fits in one hand. It’s got a basic design, using the screen in the front along with a matte finish black back. The headphone jack is at the top, power key and volume controls upon the right panel, using the charging port with the bottom. The high resolution display is bright and sharp which makes reading text and watching multimedia content a great experience. It has even got wide-viewing angles. The essential function keys- back, home and multitasking – are placed at the lower end of the display, where they stay throughout. The touch response is good and I instantly got utilized the onscreen keyboard. It’s got multiple home screens and all the apps are neatly placed in the application tray.
A smooth performer, the Nexus 7 runs on Android KitKat. It quickly loaded pages on the Chrome internet browser and I was capable to play heavy graphic games with no lag. Other than the Play Store for downloading apps, there was also a Google Play Games icon. By clicking on it, I could play games and invite contacts from Google circles to compare scores. Similarly, Play Movies & TV and Play Magazines direct one to the special pages designed for this purpose on the Play Store. The tablet houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core chipset clocked at 1.5 Ghz and is joined with a 2 GB RAM. To be available 16 GB and 32 GB storage capacities, I received the former for review, which is Wi-Fi-enabled and doesn’t support cellular connectivity. There’s a 5 MP rear camera with auto focus which can be used for casual imaging. The performance is matched using a good battery backup that lasted over eight hours on only one charge.
