Google Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB Review
Massive internal memory sets this tablet apart. This phone’s internal storage capacity amounts to 32GB. This means that users of the Nexus 7 need not worry too much about surpassing their storage capacities. All your data will be safely stored for you to access as and when needed. Nonetheless, the tablet lacks provision to expand your memory hence the 32GB internal memory is all you got.
Apart from having more storage space, it comes with 2GB of RAM, which means that the Nexus 7 has faster responses and can run more apps at once than your average handheld. This is because where as in phones and tablets with less memory you will have to keep clearing your cache memory, with the Nexus 7 (32GB) you do not need to clear cache as often. Thus, any delays are eliminated and you can use your tablet happily and easily. The device is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon and an Adreno 320 GPU. This edition of the Google phone totally outperforms the original version of the tablet in all performance tests despite the fact that it was released barely a year ago. When it comes to the dimensions, the Google Nexus 7 is 2 mm thinner and 6 mm narrower than the original Nexus 7. When compared to the iPad mini, it is a full 20mm narrower.
Connectivity on this mini tablet is not only by the regular Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC you can now connect to the internet using 4G LTE. This is an exciting feature which makes connecting to the internet even faster. Download time will be further decreased, you can have a video chat while you are on the move and watch movies anytime and anywhere. 4G LTE also enables your tablet to access internet anywhere there is coverage even where there are no Wi-Fi networks available. The slimmer, lighter tablet has a slightly narrower width which might go unnoticed to the naked eye but will fit much better in your hand. The Nexus 7 is made with plastic which apart from being light in weight is not as aesthetically pleasing as if the tablet’s body were made of a metal such as aluminum. A soft, smooth rear adds to your comfort when handling this mini tablet.
The Nexus 7 now has its stereo speakers placed on either end of the tablet. The end result is that sound on this tablet is much better and has fewer chances of being muffled. Another significant feature of the Nexus 7 is the notification LED which is situated below the screen. With a 5MP autofocus rear camera, images are not particularly of high quality. The 1.2MP front-facing camera will do just fine as a webcam. Running on an Android 4.3 KitKat operating system, its app screen has a solid black background instead of the typical Android opaque background. The transparent status bar is also missing. The Nexus 7 you can create restricted profiles that will allow multiple users to use the mini tablet with parental controls in place. Hence, your data and different permissions are protected from children and prying eyes. Response times are quite fast. Gorilla Glass protects the screen and viewing from different angles produces images that have good contrast and vibrant colours.
