Really convenient to hold in one hand or two:
One of the best things about a smaller tablet like the Nexus 7 is that you can hold it out in public, in one hand or two, standing or seated, without feeling as ridiculous as you would holding a larger dinner plate. Google Nexus 7 is the perfect size for the purpose.

At 325g, the Google Nexus 7 is a little lighter than some of its current 7in rivals, such as the 425g BlackBerry PlayBook and 344g Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. This sort of weight makes it possible to use comfortably one-handed, but if you’re used to the feather-light body of a Kindle, it will feel a little heavy.
Build quality with a low price
Google’s tablet is well made and feels like a premium product, almost making us double check the price. We should remember it is with a 200 USD price tag but with high quality both in hardware and software.
The scratch resistant Corning glass sits neatly flush with the metal frame and the same is true of the rear cover. The buttons and ports also feel solid, not cheap and nasty like we’ve come to expect from budget tablets.
The Nexus 7 has a surprisingly good line-up of hardware for a tablet with a budget price tag. For starters it uses the same nVidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor found in many high-end tablets. This is backed up by a healthy 1GB of RAM.
The highlight for us is the 7in screen which uses a backlit in-plane switching (IPS) panel with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The display has excellent contrast, brightness and viewing angles. The level of detail is high thanks to the 1280 x 800 resolution giving a pixel density of 216ppi. This is higher than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) which costs more.
We found the screen good for browsing the web, playing games but even more so for watching films and other video content.
Unfortunately a cost cutting measures mean there’s no microSD for expansion. This is probably the biggest let down about the Nexus 7. Asus told us there is less focus on local storage with content stored in the cloud. However, the Nexus 7 isn’t equipped with 3G capabilities.
In an attempt to save costs there’s no rear facing camera present on the Nexus 7. This doesn’t bother us much seeing as smartphone cameras tend to be better and more suitable to use. More importantly than a rear facing camera, there is a fairly decent 1.2Mp front facing camera for video chats, though.
There’s no camera app pre-installed so you’ll have to visit the Play Store to get some software to utilise the camera. We found the picture quality easily adequate for taking a few snaps and video calling.
