Google Nexus 7 (2013) Review

August 6, 2013 by Louie Tran Reads (26,716)


Google Nexus 7 III’m going to admit that I’ve never been a fan of Android tablets. From what I’ve seen in the past, they were slow, laggy, and the obvious stuttering got on my nerves. I was impressed with the original Nexus 7 but decided to stick with an iPad mini because Android tablets weren’t there yet. The second-generation Google Nexus 7 changed all that for me.

Sure it’s $30 more than last years model, but everything about it from the design, apps, and operating system have come a long way since then. The increased performance, amazing screen resolution, and continuous growth of Android have made this a winner. It’s by no means perfect and there is no one-size-fits-all device as everyone’s needs are different, but if you factor in what the Nexus 7 has to offer for what it’s priced at, you get a great value when compared to the competition.


  • Excellent overall performance
  • Amazing screen quality
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Solid Build Quality
  • Lightweight Design
  • Great value for the price


  • Some apps still need to be optimized for Android 4.3
  • Google needs to catch up in app library
  • Oversized bezels can be awkward
