The good: The Nexus 7 features a sharp screen, a comfortable design, and great battery life at a low starting price. Android 4.2 adds some welcome and useful features.
The bad: Android still needs more tablet-optimized apps, newer games have frame rate issues, and HSPA+ speeds seem particularly location-dependent.
The bottom line: With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer.
nexus7 is the best $280, i've spent all over of my life
by Modirniya on December 12, 2012
Cons: a little heavy
Best screen views of any 7" I've seen!
by wayneshaw on December 7, 2012
Pros: You name it!
Cons: Don't like that the home screen won't switch to landscape, but using an add on to make that happen, so no big deal.
Perfect combination of power and portability.
by x0lani on November 29, 2012
Pros: The screen looks good, and it's fast enough for the way I use it - which is mostly email, diary, news reading, and social media. And, the price is right.
Cons: It could use 3G and an expansion slot, but I suspect it would have to cost more.
Awesome tablet, everything you could want, weak screen
by GoolarnGoolyah on November 12, 2012
Pros: Fast, great screen resolution, viewing angle, good speakers, lots of apps, fantastic to use, easy to mod, light, could fit in my man pockets with ease. Great to take everywhere! Good battery life. Just works well.
Cons: The screen is very weak, breaks way too easily (google it to check, irony there). It is also difficult to repair (lack of parts), expensive to get repaired.
Summary: If you want a slate to take everywhere, do everything, fall in love with, enjoy life with, this could be the one. I have a Kindle Fire and two iPAds. ...
Summary: If you want a slate to take everywhere, do everything, fall in love with, enjoy life with, this could be the one. I have a Kindle Fire and two iPAds. Fire is bulky, not as easy to carry around. Being from Australia there is no integration for apps unless you set up an account in the US, get an address and US debit card. Painful. The Nexus 7 just worked straight out of the box (lovely box too). The iPads are awesome, tough, great, easy to use, sooo many apps. But just too large for taking everywhere. I am getting the iPad mini (wifi+cellular) so I can get gps (why they don't have it in the wifi model I do not know). But the Nexus 7 is so cheap I would happily buy one again. If the screen didn't break so easily, I would give it 6 stars, but since its out of five, I drop one star for the screen.
OK, I like it

Pros: Great screen, very fast, long,long battery life, I do like Jelly bean, perfect size to hold, Great E-reader. Touch screen works really nice.
Cons: I do miss the camera, NO flash player drives me nuts sometimes, Google chrome is ok but it just feels kinda incomplete. No HDMI out

Summary: If you are not an Apple fan or just don't want to spend allot of money on a toy and yes Tablets are really a toy. The Nexus 7 is a great tablet I have never been a fan of android phones but I do really like this tablet, it is nice to hold easy to run Google has more than enough apps to keep you happy. I had a playbook before the Nexus and I do miss the back camera but it was not a deal breaker,Over all it is a very good Tablet.
Fast and easy to use.
by SantaFean on September 4, 2012
Pros: Size is nice. Easy to carry. Sharp screen. Plenty of apps that make sense for me to have.
Cons: None really as I knew what I was getting. Back camera? No big deal. No cell service? Did NOT want it. Getting rid of cell phone in October when contract is up. Use the 7 with Skype. Wi-Fi seems to be everywhere!
Summary: Did not want to buy an Apple product. They have enough of my money, ha! Looking to use more Google products and services to be more productive. Using Google voice, ...
Summary: Did not want to buy an Apple product. They have enough of my money, ha! Looking to use more Google products and services to be more productive. Using Google voice, mail, calendar and mapping. All for work. This product serves my purpose as it is light, easy to carry, battery is good, speed of programs is good and did I say I like the size? I bought a leather cover for it too which works as a prop up for viewing. The price is great.
Form factor makes so much more sense once you use it.
by renGek on August 21, 2012
Pros: Size, weight, price, smoothness and overall abilities. Voice control is quick, responsive and very accurate. Offline voice dictation is a nice touch. Ideal for my travels. No interference from a dumb cell carrier..verizon.
Cons: Would like to see a smaller top, left and right bezel but a slightly longer bottom bezel since thats where I hold the tablet most of the time.
Summary: You can't go wrong for $200. If this was priced at $300 its still a good deal considering how much it can do. And for some reason everyone wants ...
Summary: You can't go wrong for $200. If this was priced at $300 its still a good deal considering how much it can do. And for some reason everyone wants to do a 7" form factor now. Not concern about the lack of hdmi, the only true missing feature on this as I can find ways around all the other missing things like sd card by rooting. Not so concern about hdmi missing because my phone can, the laptop and desktop that I have at home connected to my tv can as well so I am more than well covered. Besides I have yet to use hdmi out from my phone. This thing is going to keep you tablet satiated for a while. And if not, it wasn't that big of an investment anyway.
Had it for a month, no crashes no weird issues. No other devices that I possess or used works as well as the N7 for reading magazines and books. My 10" tablet just doesn't work for reading. I always end up being very aware of the tablet after 20 minutes and always end up shifting my arm or propping the tablet up. N7..don't even notice it. 10" tablets are basically like reading a text book sized book. For me, the smaller form factor feels more natural.
Hands-down the best tablet available today.
by makalive45 on August 11, 2012
Pros: Hands-down the best tablet available on the market today. Size and customization blows the iPad out of the water. Buttery smooth thanks to Jellybean. And of course, Google Now and the voice recognition makes Siri look old and outdated by comparison.
Cons: The one major flaw is the tiny memory space. 8GB or 16GB? Man, if you download a few games and add a few movies, it's already full. The fact that there's no ability for added storage is a major downside.
Summary: Overall, Nexus 7 is definitely the best tablet on the market, especially for the price, making iPad look outrageously overpriced. I've owned a couple of tablets in the past, ...
Summary: Overall, Nexus 7 is definitely the best tablet on the market, especially for the price, making iPad look outrageously overpriced. I've owned a couple of tablets in the past, and I never used them to the extent that I've used the Nexus 7 in just a few weeks. It really has made me optimistic about how incredible and essential a tablet can be to my daily life. Definitely didn't feel that with the iPad.
THe best tablet for portbillity and performance.
by Ryan-az on August 1, 2012
Pros: Very smooth, no lagging
Screen is sharp and vibrant
Quad core processor (Up to date with todays tech)
Cons: Not the best sound

Summary: The best tablet i've own. At just $200, I'm glad I didnt need to break an arm and leg to be one of the cool kids to have a tablet. I cant say much other then a near perfect product. Very satisfied.
Awesome budget tablet!!
by bling581 on July 30, 2012
Pros: It's light and sleek with a great looking display. Right from Google so no bloatware with Jellybean that's sure to receive all updates. Performs all core functions of a tablet beautifully.
Cons: Really could've used a micro-SD slot. Speaker is a little poor, but I have no need to listen to music on a tablet.
Summary: If storage is an issue you can get 2GB of cloud storage with Dropbox, or more if you use several different sites for storage. Doesn't help with stuff like ...
Summary: If storage is an issue you can get 2GB of cloud storage with Dropbox, or more if you use several different sites for storage. Doesn't help with stuff like app space or HD movies, but everything else you can throw on the cloud when you don't need it.
