Google released the latest and greatest model of their Nexus Tablet, and from the early reviews flooding on-line, it is the tablet to get! The new Nexus 7 seems to take the small tablet crown in just about every category from pixel density, to resolution, to gaming performance.
The new Nexus 7 is an improvement over last year’s model in every appreciable way. The big improvement is the 1920 x 1200 screen, which Google claims has the highest pixel density of any tablet at 323ppi. It certainly looks good, with wide viewing angles and intense colours. This year’s model is just a little taller and a little less wide than the old Nexus 7, which makes it easier to hold in one hand.
At $230, it’s more expensive than the top 7-inch tablets from 2012, but it’s also much better-performing. In addition, it’s cheaper than both the 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and the iPad Mini and yes, performs better than either, despite the former’s better handling of onscreen colors.
While it doesn’t obliterate the competition, the Nexus 7 has enough improvements to earn the small-tablet crown and is the next best choice to the full-size iPad.
The good: The Nexus 7’s razor-sharp full-HD screen, silky-smooth performance, weight, and affordable price make it the best tablet value on the market.
The bad: The back is missing the soft grippy texture of the original, screen colours lack accuracy, and there’s no microSD support. Android 4.3 has few useful interface improvements.
The bottom line: Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
But, the question we all want answered; how does the Nexus 7 stack up to it’s competition? See below why Google’s new Nexus 7 is the Small Tablet King:
