The Google Nexus 7” developed by Asus, was the first tablet to really give the iPad a run for its money. With a very high spec, and a very decent price, it was clear why.

I have had the Nexus 7 for longer than any of my other tablets. The large storage (32Gig) and incredible speed and clarity made it a no brainer for me when wanting to start on my Tablet journey. Not to mention if Google put their name to it, I thought it cannot be bad!

The device itself sits in your hand perfectly, even my wife with her smaller hands has absolutely no problem. Its front is glossy and expensive looking, and matt finished back keeps it durable. It is not prone to being scratched, a big concern of mine. Straight out of the box and you are taken through a set-up wizard which takes no more than 5 minutes. This is actually essential and worth doing as once complete you are as good as a pro at navigating the device and using its functions.

It also has an easily customisable interface so you can make it unique to you and your habits.

The screen when sat next to an iPad mini is almost as good. The 1280 x 800 pixel display makes it the best in the category under $300 and that working alongside its NVIDIA Tegra 3 graphics controller make playing even larger games great fun. Movies are as good HD quality as most peoples TV! Having this clear a display also make the world of eBooks a much more enjoyable place as unlike other tablets, words are as clear as a book itself. If not clearer!

The Nexus 7 is also feature rich, preinstalled with everything the average user would require, but also boasting access to the Google Play Store, free and paid apps are plentiful.

Now this is a tablet that really can give your laptop a run for its money. I use Google docs for word processing, editing and reading all type of documents from PDFs to Excel spread sheets. The keyboard is responsive and clever quickly learning your style and adapting to you.

On the down side, the only two things I can come up with are its poor rear fitted speaker, that is just too quite for my liking and the front facing 1.2 mega pixel camera is just about good enough for Skype, but that’s about it. Sad considering my mobile has a better camera!

Having let my 4 year old daughter play with all my tablets, this was no different. She enjoyed it as much as any other and I am happy to say that it has survived being dropped more than once. Although I do not recommend that as we were probably lucky. A carry case, as with all tablets is essential.

You can also rest assured that this device will last, as updates are just frequent enough not to annoy, but to me it is an assurance that the developers are not forgetting about us. The Google Nexus 7 is considered our Editors Choice and highly recommended when considering your options.
