The new Nexus 7 in flesh: unboxing video shows us everything
posted by Chris P. / Jul 24, 2013, 6:15 AM
Why all the bravado? Well, a tipster for AndroidPolice has really taken Google's thunder by spilling the beans with a video of the unboxing and a subsequent hands-on which confirms the leaks. If that doesn't quite qualify the tipster for a medal, he's got a bunch of high-res photos of pretty much each and every crack and nook of the new Nexus 7. We even get a visual comparison between the new tablet and its bigger brother – the Nexus 10. Sure, we would've preferred a comparison with its predecessor, but we can't complain at all.
A final recap, for those of you not in the know: the new Nexus 7 comes packing a:
- Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro ticking at 1.7GHz
- A 7-inch 1080p screen with 300 nits of brightness
- 2GB of RAM
- $229.99 for the 16GB version, $269.99 for the 32GB one
- Android 4.3
- A 5MP rear shooter, 1.2MP at the front
- Display 7.0" 1920 x 1200 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 3950 mAh

Lol at Stale Breakfast Remark! I love the way the size feels really comfortable and it looks solid. Liking the specs/design/pricepoint combination. If I have to be really picky, the only downsides IMO are: 1. wished for slightly smaller bezels at the top and the bottom and 2. wished for a bigger battery (if the rumours of the 4000mah are true). Hopefully the 4.3 battery optimizations help. Great considering the price point however. Cheers.

I really feel bad for the person who bought the old Nexus 7 today.

A great price for a great tablet. The only real problem I have is the size of the bezel. I almost think Google could have put a 7.5, or even an 8 inch screen and still maintained the overall size of the device. But as long as the thing performs, which I have a strong feeling it will, the bezel will be a non issue. Rather have a solid tablet with a pretty big bezel than a lagging/stuttering one with a thing bezel.

Noticed the wallpaper demo? Nexus 7 II lags. There is a delay in second that is very noticeable. Androids really a lag OS.
