Google Nexus 7
Advantages: Awesome high-resolution display incorporated right into a refined, comfortable design.
Disadvantages: Not enough grand Android tablet apps in contrast to iOS. Lacks microSD card slot.
When I first held the original Nexus 7, I felt it was a small chubby. At 10 mm thick and over 300 grams, it just didn't appear to me as a premium slate. The very first-gen Nexus 7 had a decent quantity of bezel approximately its show, too. Of course, for the price you still got a great deal on this device but these were among the most obvious design trade-offs to keep the price below $200.
With the 2013 Nexus 7 my opinion has completely changed. The device is wonderfully constructed, and gives no indication of its affordability. It's thin, it's comfortable, it's light, and there's an ideal quantity of bezel around the display. Furthermore, the mixture of tough scratch-resistant glass and soft-touch plastic makes the Nexus 7 physically feel really nice when you're holding it, but equally tough: there's no flex within the build at all.
From the instant I powered on the new Nexus 7, I knew the refreshed model would easily be the best 7-inch Android tablet you can buy. With an incredible 1080p display that's ideal for gaming, reading and video watching, plus a design that's slimmer and lighter than last year's model, Asus clearly knows how to refine their designs to supply a solid tablet.
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. For just $220 you're netting yourself a premium-quality system at a fantastic price, making it hard to pass up for anyone considering a portable, multimedia tablet.
Summary: The device is still a superb choice for just $220
