It might look like any other notepad that has flooded the market but the Nexus 7 by Google released in 2013 is really a nifty gadget to own, not only by the rave reviews but by its functionality.
After releasing the original Google Nexus 7 last year in August, the company decided to do an improved version of the tablet on the popular reviews the original device got in the market.
The best of it is its sleek and slender demeanor that makes it easy to carry around. The tablet which is fitted with near field communication capability runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean making it easy for users to download and enjoy apps from Google Play.
The gadget is part phone, part tablet with an option of using a microSim card or opting to use a wireless connection or even using both to the maximum features out of it.
Nexus 7 makes for a good gadget to read and to play games on. The 7.0 inch gadget has easy adaptation to 2G, 3G and 4G networks and runs on Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU making it faster in performance, compacted by a 2GB RAM.
The device is fitted with an LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors and measures 1200 x 1920 pixels protected by the corning gorilla glass technology laying aside fears of breakage and scratches.
Taking a picture with this device will not make you look weird as is with a normal 11 inch tab. Its 5MP camera enables you to take great shots with the screen allowing for focusing.
If you are an ardent Android user, using this device will be easy. All you need is either a microSim or a wireless network that will give you access. You will have to use your Gmail account if you have one to access all of the Google service on the device.
The need to have a microSIM might be a hindrance in the continent as many users still have the standard SIM size. Lumia phones are also facing this challenge but it might be a marketing gimmick (once you go MicroSIM you can’t go back).
The best use of this tablet is probably what all avid tech users would prefer: Good for reading and gaming. Thanks to its light weight, users can read or game for hours without feeling discomfort.
