Google has gone all-out to supply this and future devices with easy-to-use, practical applications such [email protected] and Google Events that people actually use on a regular basis.
7Home Screen Ads Are Not a Positive Presence
Nexus 7’s home screen shows not only application icons, but also covers of books and magazines that are preloaded on the device, such as a novel, “Esquire” magazine, and a movie. Recommended apps, books, music and movies are also displayed when swiping across to a secondary home screen. The icons represent the useless bloatware and adware that already clutters too many desktop and mobile PC home screens.
8Accelerometer Has Mind of Its Own
This view-balancing device is picky about when it decides to work. The normal view it offers is vertical. However, many people prefer a horizontal view most often. We could not induce the device to change over during a browsing session, for example, or for simply navigating the device. Thankfully, it went horizontal for the movie, as it did for the camera. It’s apparent that the Nexus 7 isn’t like the iPad, Motorola Xoom or others that allow users to deploy any view desired.
9Pricing: Reasonable, Indeed
10Bottom Line: The Nexus 7 Is Highly Recommended
The Google Nexus 7 is highly recommended for excellent performance, feature set, battery life and pricing.
