In-depth analysis of specs with pros and cons

  • Screen:-A screen size in every tablet and even in Smartphone matters a lot. People are always looking for something big but not that big which is truly annoying. A screen of Google nexus 7 Tablet is perfect as it carries 7” which is perfect for browsing. Apart from this, it has a HD display which makes your movie experience even better. Cons – 7” inch is perfect for website browsing but sometimes it may get tricky to read magazine and books.
  • Hardware:-Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, a perfect platform for multi-tasking work. Such a processor will make the web browsing experience two times faster with flash enabled functionality. This processor consumes low power so ultimately it will enhance the battery life and hence we can enjoy our favorite game in this tablet without any disruption or discharge of battery. There are two options for memory storage: 8GB and 16 GB. Cons – I don’t have any issues with its processor because this processor is perfect for multi-tasking; but one major disadvantage of this tablet is that there is no memory card slot available hence one has limited memory storage. If you are going for a vacation and want to carry some favorite movies in tablet then you can hardly do so. The maximum number of movies you can carry is around 5 to 6 with the provided memory.
  • Camera:- 1.2 megapixels with a front facing camera will give an opportunity to originate a video call. This feature may beat the Amazon’s kindle fire because kindle fire doesn’t have any camera.
  • Size:- Size wise Google Nexus 7 tablet is perfect as we can carry this tablet in our jacket pocket or in handy bag. It has crispy back cover which can make the grip strong.
  • OS:- A new version of Android (4.1) known as “Jelly Bean”. It is Fast & smooth and Simple and beyond compare. Many new features have been added in this new version. One of the most and important feature of Jelly Bean is that it turn off the CPU when screen is in idle mode so ultimately it improves the battery life. I Love this feature because in general, Android based devices have short battery life.

You are not able to use 3G or 4G on this tablet. You can only use internet through Wi-Fi connection.
