What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS Google Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet (2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC)
  • Amazed just how easy to connect new Nexus 7 replacing old one and get all existing apps downloaded, installed and connected.
  • Very impressed, easy set up, good battery life, nice screen, connects to 5mhz wifi and simply flies.
  • Beautiful design, excellent OS, light, sleek, brilliant HD screen, wifi connectivity fine, my girlfriend loves it. I have nothing more to say.
  • Have had problems getting it connected to our Broadband/Wi-Fi account - a Talk-Talk engineer is coming to sort it out--a little frustrating though as there were no instructions with the Tablet from the seller.
  • The storage on this is quite low though at only 16GB however I've never found this to be a problem as I use cloud storage for most things such as pictures and music.

  • I have a good connection, (fibre broadband) a decent screen refresh time, and the opportunity to access a great deal more if I want to, including the Prime benefits.
  • This is a very good tablet, long charge life, good screen and a lot of storage capacity.
  • I love the size of it and the storage capacity, Alexa is a bonusxxxx.
  • I am very pleased and the storage capacity has been excellent for my needs.
  • The Fire HD comes with the ability to increase the storage capacity substantially via a memory card and I think that was the main selling point in relation to the size.

What customers say about "Display"
ASUS Google Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet (2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC)
  • First off, the picture quality is fantastic. You can tilt the screen in any direction and it doesn't fade or lose clarity.
  • Packing this resolution into a 7" screen means no visible pixels which is a worthwhile bonus.
  • It has a good screen - clear and sharp with rich colours.
  • Superb battery life not bogged down with bloatware, connects to WiFi easily, nice size, a very dependable tablet.
  • I thought a small screen would be an issue but it works well and you can increase the font size to make it readable.

  • The HD Video is excellent and I get good clear images on both Prime Video and Netflix.
  • The Kindle Fire HD10 has an excellent 1920 x 1200 HD screen with super picture quality for watching movies, YouTube etc.
  • Screen quality and speed of operation compare very well with my much more expensive iPad Pro 10.5.
  • This Fire is so easy to use I can see my laptop becoming redundant. The screen resolution and picture is amazing.
  • The quality of the screen is excellent, bright and good resolution. The unit also feels robust.

What customers say about "Processor"
ASUS Google Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet (2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC)
  • I bought it mainly for watching vids so can't comment on the gaming performance but everything I've done on this tablet has been fast and smooth.
  • The performance hasn't dropped since its purchase. Everything runs smoothly, the screen is as bright as ever.
  • Perfect in every way, quality tablet with no hitches/glitches or lagging.
  • This is great. It's so much better than my gen 1. The processor speed is better, the screen is sharper and it's a great size to fit in your pocket. I use it every day. Love it! Love it! Love it!
  • Screen quality is great and we've yet to trouble the processor, which seems to take everything in it's stride.

  • The new processor is much quicker than the previous version. It's very good for browsing the web.
  • The processor speed is great and for surfing the web it does everything you’ll need.
  • Great tablet processor very quick and easy to navigate. Would still like it to be BT compatible but not the end of the world
  • Processor kinda weak, close all the background app for avoid problems.
  • Thing is the underlying version of Android is ancient. And processor is slow. Tablets have moved on as have requirements and this tablet cannot cope.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS Google Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet (2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC)
  • Sound is excellent. Not at all tinny, in fact the amount of bass surprised me.
  • Together with the stereo speakers, the tablet is very good for watching TV and movies on, too. Amazon Video works a treat.
  • The sound is surprisingly good for such a small device.
  • The android OS allows you to create restricted user profiles for kids. Simpy a great product.
  • The sound volume is louder than previous gen but still not as loud as it could be!

  • The battery is OK but nothing special so be prepared to have to charge it frequently depending on use.
  • So far I have had no issues with WiFI connectivity or video quality when streaming.
  • The tablet’s operating system is slick and fast to use and the presentation looks great as you scroll through the various themed pages.
