Overall the Nexus 7 is a great table that currently has no competition whatsoever.
It clearly outperforms the Kindle Fire as it features a faster processor and full Android 4.1 operating system. Google+ integration is definitely a nice tool that can make your life easier. The battery life is also good, close to 10 hours, so it is enough for a whole day of entertainment.
It’s not heavy, it fits the hand nicely and it has a beautiful 1280x800 screen, perfect for ebooks and magazines. It will play demanding games, play HD video and at just $199 it is without a doubt the best bang-for-buck tablet on the market today. The $249 16GB version is also a good deal and since the Nexus 7 has no microSD slot, it might be a worthwhile investment.
Build quality is good, the soft, rubberized finish on the back feels pleasant and durable. The lack of a rear facing camera could be an issue for some users, but you will have to learn to live without it.
In any case, if you are in the market for 7-inch tablet this is definitely the device to go for and we really can’t recommend it enough.
