Nexus 7 review shouts praise

 

By Posted 17 Jul 2012, 14:04

Getting a Nexus 7 hasn’t been a good experience for a growing list of people and this had been seen in our recent article about the Nexus 7 shipping, which saw well over 100 comments from users that are wondering where their pre-order is? There were plenty of people that have their Nexus 7 on the way, but more seem to be complaining. This is why it’s nice to hear some positive news about the Nexus 7, which is clear when you look at the reviews.

We have included a Nexus 7 video review below that takes a look at that device compared to the Kindle Fire, and also explains how nice it is to be able to hold the tablet in one hand, which they explain is much harder to do with the larger iPad. This video gives you a quick take on the pros and cons for Nexus 7, although most of the review is positive and it’s fair to say that while some people have shipping issues, they’re still positive about the Nexus 7 hardware.

The Nexus 7 review that shouts praise – ABC’s technology channel has been hands-on with the Nexus 7 and couldn’t sing and dance more about how good this new tablet is, although they did start out by trying to see if the new kid on the block could beat other 7-inch tablets. These include Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablet and the Amazon Kindle Fire.

They found the Nexus 7 wipes the floor with the competition, and smashes them on screen quality, although it fails to match up to the iPad’s Retina but this is expected at $200 cheaper. Have a read of the full 2-page review here and let us know if you agree with their findings. In summary the reviewer found that you won’t find a better tablet for $200.

If you were going to buy a 7-inch tablet would the Nexus 7 be your choice, or would you wait to see if Apple release a mini-iPad in 2012? You might also want to see this unboxing video of the Nexus 7, which we posted earlier today and some of our readers might find quite funny.

    Ordered mine through the Google Play store on Sunday July 17th and received it today (Tuesday July 17th) in Richmond, VA.  I must have hit it at the right time.

      That’s messed up! Its good news for you, but I preordered one on July 7 and still no word on conformation yet. I live in PA, maybe that has something to do with it? Google should NEVER do retail, or at least learn from this mistake.

      I ordered mine on Sunday too! The play store still showed it as a pre-order but said Ships Now. I got really excited but unfortunatley I haven’t heard anything… They did charge my bank account yesterday though. But I’m hearing that a lot of accounts have been charged and not shipped even though it says they will charge you when it is shipped

    That should have read Sunday July 15th as in day before yesterday.

    Going on 2 weeks of waiting on Google Play.  Today they changed their shipping time for new orders to 3-4 weeks.   At this rate, (for those of us who pre-ordered weeks ago) it will be faster to just buy an Ipad Mini.

    Ordered on 6/29, received today 7/17. Learning to use it now. I’m an Evo (Android) user for 2 years, iPad for 1 year. I have to say IOS still easier out of the box than Jellybean… but no one asked me that!

    Not too sure why every one is getting angry, there wasn’t an official release date – stop being impatient!

  • Life_goes_on

    If/when this Nexus 7 gets shipped to me, it will be my first tablet.   Does anyone recommend putting a screen protector on it? (like the ones you would put on a phone)?   Or is this a no-no for tablets?
