Nexus 7 Review – Conclusion
The 2013 edition of the Google Nexus 7 may be the oldest of the current crop of flagship 7-inch tablets (it was released in July), but it gives up nothing on the devices competitors have launched in the few months since. In fact, the Nexus 7 has gotten even better since the summer, after Google began rolling out the Android 4.4 (KitKat) update to Nexus 7 tablets early in November.
If you saw a Nexus 7 review earlier in the year that reported touch screen responsiveness issues (and again, I did not run into that myself), the KitKat update reportedly addresses the issue in affected units.
Bottom line, if you’re looking for a high-quality, high-performance tablet that offers the best of Google’s Android operating system, then the 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 should be at the top of your list.
The $229 base price is tempting, but the 32GB version for $269 is the sweet spot, doubling your storage (lots more games, app and movies without reloading) for only $40 extra.
All in all, the new Nexus 7 is one of the best tablets out there — whether you’re comparing it to other 7-inch tablets or other Android tablets.
