ASUS Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet
  • 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.

ASUS Nexus 7 7 inch Tablet
  • 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.
