ASUS Google Nexus 7 16GB review
Google’s Android operating system may well be the most popular choice for smartphones around the world, but tablets with the same touch-friendly interface haven’t quite captured the public imagination in the same way.
That’s about to change, thanks to the incredible new Nexus 7. It’s possibly the best tablet ever made, combining high quality components, excellent performance and – best of all – an exceptionally attractive price.
Designed by Google and built by ASUS, the Nexus 7 has a 7-inch IPS screen protected by toughened glass. That means it’s bright enough to see in broad daylight, is colourful, looks brilliant, and is resistant to scratching too.
It’s also got a 1280×800 resolution, which when crammed into the small screen makes it as incredibly detailed and sharp as any other tablet out there.
The rear of the Nexus 7 is a tough plastic shell that feels well made and high quality to touch. Although the price is truly remarkable, no one can call the Nexus 7 cheap.
Inside, it features 16GB of storage and NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor, which helps to make performance silky smooth while retaining a nice long battery life.
Apart from the price, £199, the best thing about the Nexus 7 is its size. It’s ideal for browsing the web, playing games and checking your email, and strikes a perfect balance between being bigger than a phone and not so big that you might as well turn on the laptop.
It could well be the tablet you’ve been waiting for. Check it out in store and online now.
The best Android tablet yet thanks to a breakthrough price and exceptional performance.
