Nexus 7 Review

haha, i'll probably still get one tbf even though it does piss me off. I wish asus would have released the original Memo 370T. I'm sure theres plenty of jelly bean tabs on their way though, so suppose there will be something for everyone anyway.

Tbh if I were you, I would wait and see if asus release a nexus 7 with a an SD card slot or a 32gb version

There definitely won't be a Nexus 7 with a microSD slot. It is a shame, you're right, I should have added it to the 'cons' list, i'll do that.

Many thanks Paul. Any word on an Asus only, no Google idiocy, version of the tablet? They had a working 370T design ...

Who do you think develops Android? Why is it "Google idiocy", when their amazing system makes it work seamlessly? I am not a fanboy by the way - just asking.

No Google, no Android; no Android, no Nexus 7... kapiche? :P

Hi Paul, I've got a Nexus 7 running JRO03D (MoDaCo Custom ROM Jr5) and a Samsung Galaxy Nexus running JRO03C (MoDaCo Custom ROM Jr2) and cannot get NFC working between the two. Is there a known issue with NFC and Modaco ROM's?

Thanks for your help.

Jared

No, nothing I've changed that should cause an issue?

Hi Paul,

I was trying to 'beam' something from an app that didn't support it! It's working great now. Cheers

Spam? Seriously... this must of taken ages to write, all of which I read and it's a great review. This helped me make my mind up and thanks Paul!

I think he is referring to the gmail screenshot. Paul has "999+" messages in his spam folder.

Hi Paul,

I haven't received my device yet, but I thought you might be able to weigh in on dispay stuff.

I'm sure that you are aware of the display issues, particularly the "Intensity Scale" calibration.

http://www.displaymate.com/news.html

I wonder if this can be remedied? If it's a calibration issue can it be adjusted?

Thanks!

Transformers is only streamed if you don't download it ;).

<snip>

Transformers is streamed, and books aren't that exciting. A few actual clips, or some mp3's would have been good. Also a game or some kinda of interactive app, you know something to play with when you first get it, but before you settle down and start using it in anger.

I think that if Google had produced a fully packed device, then the OEMs would be screwed as there would be very little for them to differentiate from the reference design that the Nexus 7 basicaly is.

For a lot of users the Nexus 7 is great. Maybe not perfect, but damn good value for money. Other devices will come out with a MicroSD slot, better camera, USB port, HDMI port, etc.

To is it looks like a nice thing, and some things can be fixed with third-party apps. Still, I wonder about the WiFi part at the launch... If it isn't online, I cannot use it?!

Great review. Disadvantage is the lack of microSD expansion slot and 3G option. the Nexus 7 = mini tablet.

Paul, I agree with you on the Nexus 7. Would love to put one through it`s paces and put the "Doctor a day" fruit to shame.

Thank's paul. The review is great. But the tablet shouldn't have a Nexus name. Nexus must produce with great effort, not best effort :)

And since the Apple win versus samsung, google must be creative produce new design. I love apples, but hate apple :)

The Nexus line is meant to define a minimum standard that Google expect from manufacturers, not the highest spec device possible. Otherwise the manufacturers can't differentiate their products!
