The All New Nexus 7. Whats New?

Leave a Comment
Launched about a year ago, Google's Nexus 7 was the best small sized tablet which became a tough competitor to the apple iPad mini. It was fast, slim, powerful and extremely portable but now the best small tablet just got even better. Lets check out what all new feature Google has added in this small beast and also what all old features Google has removed from it. So, lets begin.

Do Read Our Welcome Post

Hello All. Welcome To Techie

1>All New Design 

First of all the new Nexus 7 has now become slimmer and more beautiful yet not much beautiful to please our eyes. Though Google has reduced the size of the bezels on both the sides it is still very large, the bezel at the top is almost 1 inch in length! . The 7 inch tab fits perfectly well in hand - it's neither too big nor too small. Just perfect!! The texture on the back of the tablet has been removed and maybe due to that the phone might not feel so grippy as it was in the previous Nexus 7. Though the texture is subtracted from the tablet, there is a addition of a 5 MP on the rear and stereo speaker on the tablet which is so damn awesome. Even though the power and hardware has increased the tablet has become 50 grams lighter which make it really easy to use.

2>All New Display

The old Nexus had a fair display with an amazing 221 ppi but the new Nexus 7 has got a full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels along with an outstanding pixel density of 323 ppi. Surprisingly, the new Nexus 7 also gets the honor of the becoming the first tablet with such high pixel density. Google has made the colors more bright and vivid so watching movies, playing games or even reading magazines in the tablet becomes a wonderful experience. The resolution and the color output seems to be marvelous and the display of this tablet takes it to a whole new level.

3>Mind Blowing Software

The Nexus 7 gets the latest flavor of android that is Jelly Bean v 4.3. Even the previous Nexus 7 had Jelly Bean but it was v 4.1 . This clearly indicates that there is no major improvements in the operating system  but minor changes can be noticed. Jelly Bean suits the tablet very well and is nicely optimized for the tablet. There are a large number of apps and games available on the play store which suit the tablet very well. As the Nexus 7 comes with a powerful processor and chipset with 2 giga bytes of RAM gaming on the tablet is really easy. There are no lags even in the heavy games and hitting high scores is a piece of cake.

4>Superb Performance With An Awesome Hardware

  The New Nexus 7 is also made much powerful. It comes with an awesome Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 pro processor which is clocked at 1.5 GHz along with a Adreno 320 GPU at 400MHz. With 2 GB of RAM on the board, multi- tasking on the tablet has become way more easy. With such great power, one simply can't even think about lag even while multiple tasking. Opening heavy games along with lots of other software is not at all a problem. This tab just can handle everything.

Even though the performance and the power of the tablet has increased, there is no decrease in the battery life of the phone. Instead, the battery backup has been increased which adds up as a great and astonishing feature of the tablet. The new 5 MP auto focus camera at the back of the tablet, though new, is also capable of capturing photos at 1080 p. There is also an option of 4G LTE  on the tablet. It even gets a dual band WiFi , and the latest Bluetooth 4.0.

5> Price

As the Nexus 7 has got lots of updates in it, the price has also got a little bit higher. The prices are:

1> New Nexus 7 16 GB WiFi = $229 [Price increased by 30$]

2> New Nexus 7 32 GB WiFi = $269 [Price increased by 40$]

3> New Nexus 7 32 GB WiFi + 4G Cellular = $349


Though the New Nexus 7 has been made way much better, we feel that we are missing some features. The major thing is that even in the New Nexus 7 did not get a Micro SD slot. Some other noticeable cons are that the texture at the back of the phone is removed which reduces the grip of the phone in ones hand and also it is said that the colors are not accurate. However we did not find any other cons, We feel that the New Nexus 7 is a great phone. There are lots of improvements in its features and the addition of a rear camera has been a fantastic idea. For all the features in the New Nexus 7 Tablet, one can simply buy it without even thinking about the price which is yet not so expensive.
