Video play is decent, but the sound quality is kinda low. If you decide to purchase this, you might want to buy some speakers or use some earphones/headphones. The display itself is vibrant and appeals to the eyes. Try not to overwhelm it by using too many apps at the same time, it will restart/reboot itself.
Will I buy it again? Well, actually I have, I bought one for myself and use it for drawing and gaming purposes. It's a good tablet for the price that I've bought it (The first one was $109 and the second was $45).
SIZE MATTERS: It's the perfect size to carry with you, fits easily in the hand and is nice and slim
BUILD QUALITY: The tab is sturdy and well built, no cheap plastics or screen gaps, glass screen is what sold me on it. Have used this day in and out for months and still looks like it just came out of the box.
SCREEN QUALITY: Not as good as the IPAD, but pretty darn close. Graphics are clear and crisp, nice bright colors and smooth video playback.
ANDROID: Need I say more? Have yet to have an app which doesn't work on this,easily personalized in so many ways.
Never had a problem with lag during gameplay as of yet, even in RPGs which is a miracle.
HEFTY: for such a small profile tab, the weight is pretty decent, can be a bit tough on the wrists after awhile.
SCREEN SENSITIVITY: The touch screen is EXTREMELY sensitive. Can be annoying when scrolling online or in apps, easy to accidentally click links and buttons.
SPEAKERS and SOUND: I'll be honest. It's CRAP. Better than other android tabs I've had but still needs some work on volume and clarity. If you like loud music in your ear buds, don't even bother.
PLAY STORE SELECTION: Great for apps and games but for movies, music, and ebooks the selection is quite limited compared to Amazon.
I had owned my Nexus 7 for about 6 months. I had it in a case at all times and am VERY careful with my electronics. I have never broken a phone, or my current iPad which I have had for several years. Anyway I had the nexus 7 in my purse. It had been in my purse all day and I had used it earlier that morning. I go to pull it out and it has a slight crack at the bottom.
How the heck it got the crack, I don't know. But since the crack was at the bottom I could no longer use the keyboard. Anytime I tried to type anything the letters would go crazy.
I googled issues with the nexus 7 and apparently the way they are assembled it is a KNOWN ISSUE for them to crack. Many other people had experienced the same issue as well.
If you are interested in buying this product I would definitely say do your research first. I ended up getting an iPad mini and have never looked back.
I bought a Nexus 7 because I was interested in the smaller tablet size but not ready to take a step backward from my iPad 3's performance in order to adopt an iPad mini. The fact that the Nexus has a lower starting price (as well as having saved some reward money from the retailer where I purchased) was also enticing.
It was good to see some of my most-used apps represented in the marketplace, though frustrating to find them so frequently at a markup: for example, iTap RDP for apple devices is a universal app that I can use on my iPhone or iPad and currently sells for $11.99, the same app for Android is $14.99.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the tablet, it's screen is gorgeous, it is responsive and seems never to have an issue completing any task I set out to do with it, and yet... I still reach for my iPad more often than not, and it seems to have simply reinforced that what I want is an iPad mini that isn't a step down. That's all subjective, though. I would not hesitate to recommend the Nexus 7 to any of my friends looking for a tablet. It's far and away better than any of the other devices of it's size that I'd tried out prior to the iPad mini's launch.
