3-nity, 10 Aug 2013Bezel is too thick. :)Yeah. Since Asus-Google made the Nexus 7 2 taller than the original Nexus 7, it kinda looks like a tall and skinny 16:9 phablet.
a standard piece launch by google no difects nd is perfect for the student of the institution.
Mark, 10 Aug 2013I'd rather get Xperia Z Ultra.At more than double the price... ???? :-)
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2013This tablet has the same cpu, & gpu of nexus 4No, the gpu is more powerful. Yet, it is cheaper, and what else? Oh, yes… it has a 7" full hd screen…
Peter From Poland, 10 Aug 2013I'm a bit disappointed with video player part of this review... You couldn't play movie, and y... moreOh, come on… have you ever used an android tablet? Just install a good video player, for example VLC (open source and free) and you'll be able to play anything you like!
A great little tablet, I can't wait to see the screen on this thing.
I would go for the 32gb version for sure, 16gb just isn't enough these days, and you're likely only going to have a couple of HD movies on the Nexus 7 at any one time.
A lot of people are waiting for the next iPad mini right now and hoping that it has a Retina screen (try using the original after using the iPhone 5) and if they don't deliver, it could be a bad year for them.
redsky0, 10 Aug 2013Is there any reason you're not testing audio quality like you do with most smartphones?Thanks for putting the audio results in. Pity that results are about as bad as the original Nexus 7. Missed opportunity here for Asus/Google against the iPad mini although I suppose they consider the Nexus more a test device not a mass market product so they don't really care ...
danishdhanshe, 10 Aug 2013Mx player always existsI know it does LOL ! Yet It would be cool if they would just confirm that it plays FullHD movies without any problems.
Still posting S4 benchmarks? GSMArena should delete it because for all we know Samsung cheated on the S4's benchmark specs.

I'm a bit disappointed with video player part of this review... You couldn't play movie, and you just dropped it like that ? Never tried to put something else or play a movie on a player from shop ? That is just weird :o It's like you just dropped this part of review. Ok there is also information about limited tests as it was made off line, yet there is also noting about those speakers. Louder or not compared to old nexus, is it really so weird place in your opinion ? Waiting for updated, full review. As for now it's quite okay :)
