Is there a problem with the build quality of the new Nexus 7?
The new Google Nexus 7 has some welcomed changes such as a higher screen resolution to 1920 x 1200. That gives the tablet a pixel density of  323ppi, among the highest for a tablet. The Tegra 3 processor has been replaced by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Pro S4. The slate is thinner and lighter than the original, is 80% faster and has 4X the graphics performance.

Earlier today we told you that some retailers have been selling the tablet on Friday even though the launch date is actually July 30th. Which brings us to one of our loyal readers who managed to purchase one of the new Nexus 7 tablets from a GameStop today. After taking home the tablet and using it for 10 minutes, look at what happened to the Nexus name on the back of the tablet. As you probably know, ASUS is the company behind the Google Nexus 7, both the OG and the new versions of the slate.

Has anyone else had any sort of problem with the build quality of their new Nexus 7? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.
