Good: battery, screen, Jelly bean, build, size, well everything
Bad: well maybe no 3g, but hey thats what my phone is for, plus tethering is the solution
Comment: hv been holding of buying a tables for sometime now. I have had Iphones and Android phones in the past and after the pros on cons of the OS's I prefer Android as its far more customizable and less limiting. So this ruled out the Ipad as is more of a cross between an Ipod touch and a iphone with a big screen.
When this tables came out I instantly knew it was for me:
Size = perfect for tables
OS= running latest android OS
Build= is solid
Screen = is great full HD
Only thing I thought what about 3G connectivity, as its only wifi. But then again thats not a problem as all i need todo is tether my Nexus S and away I go I have internet access on the go, with out the need of an additional data plan.
I' very happy with this table and with a price of £200 its a bargan
Good: Low price, Jelly Bean OS, lack of proprietary clutter, power, price, Google integration, portability, screen
Bad: Lack of memory expansion
Comment: I will comment when I get one
Comment: It's not a great device for south asian country like Bangladesh. Here Wi-Fi hotspot is not available like us or uk. So a SIM card, microSD memory card along with a front facing camera for Skype or any kind of video chat would've been better. If Google add these in their next nexus with the same price then I want this device.
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.
