Reviews for the Google Nexus 7 2013

85% Review Google Nexus 7 16 GB 2013 Tablet | Notebookcheck
The next Nexus. The first generation Asus Nexus 7 was arguably the best 7-inch tablet for $200.. so why mess with the price? While the new Nexus 7 does cost $30 more than the original, it manages to improve every aspect both inside and out. See how this hot-selling hardware holds up in our full review below.
Nexus 7 vs Nexus 9 comparison: Google's tablet gets bigger and better
Source: PC Advisor English
The Nexus 9 is undoubtedly better than the Nexus 7 with a more powerful 64-bit processor, better cameras and front facing stereo speakers. The screen is bigger too but there's a drop in pixel density and an increase in price. Stand by for an update once we get our hands on the Nexus 9.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact vs Nexus 7 comparison review: Sony's new 8in tablet is a strong Nexus 7 rival
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, both the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Nexus 7 are brilliant smaller tablets. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact will offer you more in the way of power, connectivity, battery and capacity, but it'll cost you £100 more, so it really comes down to your budget on this one. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that there are rumours that the Nexus 7 is going to get an update soon, so it might be worth hanging on to find out what Google has up its sleeve before you buy the current version.

Now thinner, lighter and faster than 2012′s model, Google’s Nexus 7 brings an exemplary mix of power and portability in a 7-inch tablet format. It’s not an all-encompassing multimedia powerhouse, but the Nexus 7 really can’t be beaten on value if you’re after a compact and robust Android-powered tablet.

New Nexus 7 2 (2013) vs iPad Mini tablet comparison review: Apple's best value tablet can't beat the new Nexus 7
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
The original iPad mini is a really good deal. If I was investing in a new iPad it would be the one to go for. It's priced to shift and despite a display that has now been superseded by the best it remains a great device. But as Android has improved the Nexus devices have queered the pitch for everyone else. The Nexus 7 2 is not just cheap, it's really good too. And so if you are prepared to take a dive into the waters of Android, it is a great choice - and cheaper than the cheapest iPad.

Google Nexus 7 vs LG G Pad 8.3 vs Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 review: What's the best small and cheap Android tablet?
Source: PC Advisor English
Despite being the oldest tablet here, the Nexus 7 remains our top-pick. It's the best all-rounder but the other two contenders are still worth a shout. The G Pad feels the best and has some extra software features which are really handy. Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 8 is cheap, good looking and has a great design – just be prepared for lower grade hardware and performance if you opt for this one.

If you're looking for a 7-inch tablet, I'll put it like this: there is no better alternative on the market, right now. And be aware of that qualification, because markets change very quickly. The Nexus 7 wipes the floor with the competition but Google could have worked at 100% rather than 97% to make the Nexus 7 the one to beat.

Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets available in the Indian market in terms of the overall user experience and build quality. However, its graphical performance was mediocre, and we did experience odd lags while playing heavy graphics games. Apart from this, the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet handled everything we threw at it with a degree of ease. If we had to mention other downsides to Nexus 7's complete package, they would be that the device tended to gobble up battery life quickly, and the limited storage (26GB user available). Our advice for power users will be to stay not too far from a charging point, as the Nexus 7 tablet tends to get below 40 percent battery within a few hours, which is disheartening.

100% Google Nexus 7 (2013) review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Google Nexus 7 2013 costs £199 directly from Google for the 16GB, Wi-Fi only edition. That's £40 more than the previous model, but we feel the increase is justified based on the increased performance, sleeker design and vastly improved display. It's feels like a top-end device now, one which holds up well in comparison to the more expensive iPad Mini, and is very much deserving of our Best Buy award. If you're on a tighter budget, the £130 Asus MemoPad HD 7 carries on where the original Nexus 7 left off, but right now this is the best 7in Android tablet around.

The 32GB LTE model is priced at Rs 27,999, which feels a bit expensive for a 7-inch Android tablet. However, when you compare it to Apple’s iPad mini with Retina at the same price, the LTE Nexus 7 offers better value as you get double the storage and LTE data too. Given these tablets were only just introduced into the market, the prices should drop in a couple of months. If you don’t need 3G, then the Wi-Fi only version is also a good pick as prices start at Rs 20,999. Compared to the 2012 Nexus 7, the new version has notable changes but honestly, the price difference does seem a lot. If it’s just gaming and casual web browsing you’re after, then then the old Nexus 7 is still a bargain for the price it’s retailing at. However, if reading eBooks and watching videos is something you do a lot, the new Nexus 7 is worth the premium.

90% 7-inch tablet showdown: Kindle Fire HDX vs. Nexus 7
Source: TechHive.com English
The Kindle Fire HDX. It wins on the strength of its superior interface and software/content, though it excels in other matters, too. I found myself using the Fire HDX more often than the Nexus 7 to watch movies and to read on the train ride home. Its smaller size and convenient content carousel help guide you to exactly what you’re most likely to use a tablet for, without having to sift through a library of apps or spend hours setting it up. The HDX is also a keen choice for technologically challenged family members, as it offers better out-of-the-box functionality.

If we disregard the confusion with the name, new Nexus 7 made a great impression on us. We would have liked for it to have a better design and to be made out of better materials and for its price to be the same as the predecessor’s at the time of presenting, but everything else is more than excellent.

Although the Nexus 7 has only an average camera, no expandable storage and a selection of tablet apps that doesn’t quite cut it up against the iOS App Store, the device is still a superb choice.

The Nexus 7’s screen bests every rival for pixel count and sheer quality. The components outstrip virtually everything out there – so performance is slick. The chassis is slimmer, lighter and more comfortable than before, and the 16GB and 32GB models cost less than £239. It'll also be first in line to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update.

Nexus 7 (2013) vs Nexus 7 (2012) head–to–head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won five of our six categories, we have to say the 2013 Nexus 7 is a serious upgrade. The 2013 model features a more luxurious design, a more powerful processor, double the memory of the 2012 model and, to top it all off, one of the best displays we've ever used. That said, it's worth noting the 2012 Nexus 7 is still a very good device in its own right and it meets all the requirements for most tablet users. For this reason, while the 2013 Nexus 7 is a better device, early adopters who bought the 2012 model should consider whether they really need the added power before upgrading.

The new Nexus 7 once again redefines how much tablet you can expect for under two hundred quid, just as the original did. In every single measurable way the new model is a big step forward from the old, being smaller, lighter, more powerful and possessed of a much improved display. Despite one single niggle - there’s still no physical storage expansion - the Nexus 7 still easily deserves the title of the Best Tablet in the World.

What you get for that premium, however, is a superlative piece of hardware. It’s the fastest, lightest, thinnest, narrowest, highest-DPI compact Android tablet – and because it’s a Nexus, you know the OS will be supported for the foreseeable future, while not getting bogged down by third-party “enhancements”. If you want a cheap and capable tablet, the Nook HD is still a tremendously tempting bargain. If you’re in the market for something more elegant, more capable and more future-proof, however, the new Nexus 7 is more or less irresistible.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Summing up, we have to say we're impressed with the new Nexus 7. While it's not a milestone moment in Android's history in the same way its predecessor was, Google and Asus have made the right changes. Featuring improved performance, a new rear camera, amazing display and completely reworked design, the Nexus 7 2013 is currently the best tablet in its size and price bracket. In fact our only criticism is that, being released just one year after the first Nexus 7, which has also been upgraded to Android 4.3, individuals or firms that invested in the original own-brand Google tablet may not find enough vitally new features to justify upgrading. That said, for new users looking to try out an Android tablet, we couldn't recommend the new Nexus 7 enough.

The somewhat half-hearted approach to tablet optimisation is a shame and a bit of an issue for the Google Nexus 7, and it's something that holds it back against the iPad Mini. Apple's little tab has endless apps tailored for its screen, and the squatter ratio and extra 0.9in make it more suitable for interaction and creating content.

90% New Nexus 7 2 review: Google's second generation 7-inch tablet
Source: PC Advisor English
I can’t help but feel a little trepidation. The previous-generation Nexus 7 had quite a few issues to contend with after its update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. If I let the battery die, the tablet wouldn’t turn on without a hard reset, and the tablet became buggier and slower to use over time. I hope this new Nexus 7 won’t suffer from those foibles—because if history repeats itself, Google will have to do much more next time around to rid us of our bad memories. The second-generation Nexus 7 offers strong features at an affordable price. If you’re a seasoned tablet user, whether you should buy this tablet will depend primarily on whether you are tied to Google’s ecosystem. Still, this particular device can hold its own against any other 7-inch tablet currently available. At the moment, it has some of the best specs, a bright screen, and a few other little goodies—and it’s hardly a splurge. If you’re in the market for a 7-inch Android device, this is the one to get.
