Tablets break the 320ppi barrier: new vs old Google Nexus 7 specs and size review

0. phoneArena 24 Jul 2013, 05:21 posted on

The new Nexus 7 tablet by Google is already outed, and with its 1920x1200 pixels of resolution it sports the highest pixel density ever on a tablet. The 323ppi count is just north of the 320ppi mark Apple called Retina Display upon the iPhone 4 introduction, as with that density a person with perfect vision wouldn't be able to tell the individual pixels from the typical distance you look at a smartphone...

The nexus 7 II is probably the best priced tablet with top of the line specs.

If only it ran iOS it'd be a dream come true!

Hey LOSER, go back to Apple and get RIPPED OFF somemore. Apple treats you like a newbie in prison, bend over a take it like a good boy, no lube! Maybe its time you open your eyes and buy a great product thats not made by assh@!es that pretend to be an American company!

Yikes that's a rather angry response! I happen to prefer iOS, which is why I think this'd be great with iOS on it.

Nothing, it just looks and operates in a much nicer way and is more pleasant to use.

Is it any wonder they are so popular? I predict more problems trying to order one when they are put up on the Play store.

Why are you compairing that Sony Xperia Z Ultra in this Nexus 7 2? In price comparison you can even buy 3 - 4 Nexus 7 2.

Doesnt matter if it's cheap it will certainly cost a lot more in non-google play countries
it will be a miracle if it gets priced under the $500 mark in my country

How is the Xperia Tablet Z the best tablet of 2013? We're just over half way into the year, we still have the iPad 5 and second gen Nexus 10 to wait for, as well as Samsung's new Note 10.1.

Also, this new Nexus 7 is better than the Xperia Tablet Z. Exact same specs; quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320, 2 GB of RAM, 1920x1200 display, but the Nexus has a smaller display which means a higher pixel density, and completely stock Android which means it will run a lot smoother than Sony's custom UI on the Xperia Tablet Z. Plus, instant updates from Google instead of waiting for Sony to slap their Xperia UI on top of it.

That screen brightness sucks. The first-gen N7 was 312 nits, and the iPad Mjni is 388. This is going to look dull, even if it is high PPI. Why increase usability in one area, and then completely negate that with a dull screen? Even 400 nits isn't close to the top of tablet brightness (Transformer Infinity, 694), so this is just a step backward.

That's the downside of such a high density display. The more dense the pixels, the brighter the screen needs to be to shine through them, but of course that also increases battery consumption.

Feel like this is aimed at the new Kindle more than anything else. Regardless, it's impressive. I was debating skipping this and keeping my current 7 but I might upgrade after seeing this.

This is the device I will recommend to my (retired, tech-unsavvy) father. The value, screen quality and app availability make it an absolute no-brainer even for Android initiates.

Not sure about 300 nits, decent enough but probably unsuitable for outdoors.
Anyways that thing is BEAST!
If only I had a need for a tablet other than gaming then I'd get it in a heartbeat.

i think qualcomm wants to clear the stock of its snapdragon s4 krait chips in favor of its newer 600,800 line up thats why they are selling it a good price !

People can say a tablet with such a high resolution isn't necessary but once you use one you wont want to go back!
