Good: 1. front facing camera 1.2 2. IPs screen 3. OS Jelly Bean 4.1 4. Made With Asus and Google which makes the product stand out 5. Slim and Thin 6. Comfortable with holding unlike the have iPad 7. The 7'' screen makes it easy to carry around 8. Quad Core Prosser
Bad: Noting really...
Comment: In my opinion its amazing tablet and so many people worry about the memory and where to store your multimedia:-) problem has been solved now you can use 6 apps to store all your multimedia media:
2. Asus webstorage
5. Google Drive
6. Android Storage
And to be honest the best one is box with provides you 50gb of free storage.
About the rear camera you look stupid taking pictures with a massive tablet. Now these day we smartphones which are better and higher pixels.
3G you don't really need it there are so many WiFi hotspots.
Comment: Brilliant tablet
Comment: Your review reads just like the one on CNET USA
However what you omit to say is that the Nexus will not sove your Music to Google Cloud in the UK USA ONLY and there is limitations on films due to lack of Google getting distribution right in the UK
Therefore it as useful as a brick for those who want to save and listen to their music
Comment: it's excellent!
Good: everything, slick screen super fast looks nice
Bad: lack of landscape options
Comment: bought the 16gb yesterday, google play store was out of stock for the 16gb but managed to get it in tescos of all places, battery life is good looks stunning and the best thing of all is i have a windows 7 phone and the latest update has enabled internet sharing so my phone now has its own wifi hotspot which allows my nexus 7 to connect to my phone over wifi so i can use the internet anywhere on my nexus 7 brilliant, i have a 1 gb data plan per month on my phone so we weill see how that holds up, i paid £199 for the uk 16gb version and i think this is brill for the price also came with £15 free google play app downloads
Good: Speed, screen, build quality, high spec components. You can feel the quality and robustness of the product when held in the hand.
Bad: No flash, no sd expansion, dropbox constantly crashes and wont sync, kindle app doesn't sync with, or recognise, all media held on kindle.
Comment: I've had this device for a few days now. I haven't tried everything yet but it lives up to, and beyond expectations. I bought the NEXUS 7 so that I could sit in front of the TV and surf or read or watch a movie if the TV sucked. And it often does!!
I love the feel of the Nexus. It's easy to use, feels of real quality and is as fast as you want it to be. Lack of flash is a pain but hopefully HTML 5 will fix that. The constant failure of dropbox is a significant downer as I like to update files and folders often and have to revert to my PC for this function.
The failure of the kindle app is another significant downside. The Nexus is great for reading but as this app won't sync with all of the content on my kindle it fails miserably on this front.
All in all this is a great product. I believe the problems currently experienced will be resolved and the Nexus will be everything it should be. I still think this is a very worthwhile purchase and at the price, you just have to buy it!!.
Comment: Looking through your review I saw NOTHING about Music. From what I can find out I can ONLY send my Music to their Cloud if I am in the USA. That therefore is the greatest reason NOT to buy it.
Maybe you know differently??? If so please tell.
Good: Very fast and smooth. Applications download without fuss. Plenty of functionality. Great screen, viewable at many angles
Bad: Default font on browser rather too tiny. BBC iPlayer app needed for Jelly Bean OS.
Comment: Perhaps some people who now own the Nexus 7 are a little disappointed after all the hype, but not me. The price is staggeringly good. Only 12 months ago, we were being asked to pay over twice the price for, say, the Blackberry Playbook or the HTC Flyer and even though these are good machines, they don't have the sheer grunt of the Nexus 7. Other manufacturers are falling over themselves to match prices - for example, the Motorola Media edition is now reduced by at least £50 (as cheap at the Nexus 7). £200 is now the new benchmark for a premium 7" android tablet, a price that the original Amazon Kindle Fire will have to undercut significantly if it is to be available here in the Autumn from Waterstones. Though I have the original iPad, which I have used daily, I can see that it will be supplanted for most things by this product. The weight and size are just right, somehow, and your arm doesn't begin to ache after a few minutes of holding it.
Good: It's fast
Bad: Dim screen, shocking splashy sound quality, chunky and cheap feeling
Comment: Bitterly disappointed with this lump of rubbish.
Expecting great things after the reviews; basically a small form- factor Android IPad.
What I got was a piece of rubbish.
The worst things; the screen is dim and after finding the adjustment through the menus nothing really happens when you turn it up; add to this the sound - splashy, nasty and simply unacceptable; the feel - its chunky and feels awful in the hand.
I have an IPad 2; that's a keeper.
My Nexus is on EBay; if you still believe the hype, go for it.
Bad: cost of some apps
Comment: purchase process should be streamlined
