Good: Great device, smooth and snappy.
Bad: No back camera
Comment: I brought this for children, lovely device.
I Found the cheapest price of Google Nexus 7 in this website, also there you find the most complete & useful Review of this cool tablet! Just click here :
Good: fast, ease of use, loads of apps, reliale
Bad: no sf card . no camera and on my model no 3G
Comment: Knowing the limitations i purchased it and am happy with the tablet with its limitations
Good: Level of cutomization, graphical capability from quad core proc., battery life, input variability (talk to text, talk to search, cursive to type, cursive to search, bluetooth keyboard integration etc.
Bad: speaker level.
Comment: This is an excellent product with a low price point, powerful graphical interface and highly creative customization capabilities with strong battery life. I can stream US cable tv shows in Sweden, write with a stylus as if it is a journal, reconfigure the user interface with third party launchers, play games, create work product with MS Office equivalents and use multiple inputs including voice to text and voice to search, cursive to text, cursive to search. Inclusion of an OTG USB adaptor mitigates any outboard memory shortages. There are solutions using cloud services, and software allowing one to control your pc or use your pc to organize your tablet..even the ability to (with n7player) pull from your iTunes library and download video from the net. What more could you ask for for 250 dollars (32 gb model.)
Good: The quad core processor and ram make the tablet amazing fast. Interacting with teh Nexus7 is so smooth and easy, its becomes intuitive as you forget about any interface limitations. and Jelly bean is beautiful.
Bad: While you can get an OTG cable and do a whole lot with the Nexux7, the lack of an SD slot is strange. But the most concerning part of the Nexux 7 is the GLASS. This cant be stressed strongly enough...there are countless thousands of reports of the Nexus7 screen cracking under very normal use. And trying to get ASUS to replace the unit is proving very difficult for almost everyone. Its a problem.

Good: New Android, all cool latest stuff
Bad: no rear cam, Asus
Comment: I've got over the fact that there is no rear cam which I think is weird as there's one on 10 but not on 7 what the..
but anyway I may buy a new device and I've been researching and sometimes it comes back to the nexus 7 or 10 and then i think whats bad about this (as comparing to 10) then I think oh yh Asus now I kno that doesn't automatically make it bad and this is a brilliant device but it keeps putting me off; summary: I am likely to get this if i get a new device depending on my bbudget
Good: Display Speed Apps
Bad: Speaker Battery Life
Comment: Very good device love it. I wish the battery life was better (only 7 - 8 hrs)
The speaker is a Mono one and so goes a bit crackly
Comment: I recently attempted to replace a broken screen on my Google nexus 7 from ETrade Supply. I’m a novice so I did some web research and learned that the LCD screen is affixed to the glass (ifixit.com); so I ordered what I thought was the whole thing. When I searched for replacement screens, I came to ETrade Supply and ordered the replacement screen.
It turns out that ETrade Supply sells these parts separately because they contend it is really quite common to remove the adhesive binding the LCD screen to the glass and digitizer. Maybe an expert from the US can either set me or them straight… here is their contention after I realized I was sold not the broken glass and LCD but the LCD only:
“You could also buy a digitizer touch panel as well as an adhesive, and put the parts together yourself, though I suggest this be done only by professionals. So if you chose this method I would further suggest taking everything to a repair shop and asking for them to assist you.”
“The part you ordered was the “OEM Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet LCD Screen” http://www.etradesupply.com/oem-asus-google-nexus-7-tablet-lcd-screen.html. This piece comes with nothing but the LCD. We have sold several thousand of these exact units, but usually to repair shops since changing only the LCD is very difficult”
The moral of the story, be careful when ordering from ETrade supply, my mishap caused me to waste $80 and need to pay to ship the part back to Hong Kong to get a refund! But that’s not all! Before I knew they ship this mystery part, they made me do the following before offering I could ship the part internationally on my own dime.
1) Download WEA Form for Replacement.
1. Take some high definition photos explaining the claim. The photos should include the following:
• Evidence showing the part is purchased from ETrade Supply.
• Evidence showing where and what the defect is.
2. Send it to email@example.com to conduct an Evaluation.
2) Then, after ETrade receives and reviews the form:
1. Print the attached WEA form.
2. Send it along with the defective part to the address of ETrade Supply Asia-Pacific warehouse in Hong Kong, China:
ETrade Supply International Limited,
RM 703 Kowloon Building, 555 Nathan RD,Kowloon Tong, HongKong
Telephone: +852 30696827
All of us in the bay area are starting to see this going sideways, $80 mistake, 1 hour to fill out the silly TPS report and then international shipping? How much does a new Nexus 7 cost?
