REVIEW: Google Made A Tablet That’s Better Than The iPad Mini

It’s still tough to think of Google as a hardware company. –

But in the last year and change, it’s been surprising everyone with a string  of great products. There’s the Nexus 4 smartphone. The Chromebook Pixel laptop. The Chromecast video streaming dongle for your TV.

And now there’s an update to its well-reviewed 7-inch tablet, the Nexus  7.

The new Nexus 7, which is built by Asus, improves on the original in every  conceivable way while still keeping the price low at a very reasonable $229. If you’re looking for an affordable,  smaller tablet, the Nexus 7 is the first device you should look at.

The Best Tiny Tablet

Simply put, the Nexus 7 is a better overall tablet than Apple’s iPad Mini.

It has a sharper screen, it plays full HD video, and it has better speakers  that play in stereo.

And you get all that for $100 less than the iPad Mini. Even if you want to  double the  Nexus 7’s storage to 32 GB, you only have to pay an extra $40,  not the $100 Apple charges you. That’s an incredible value.

Design-wise, the Nexus 7 has been slimmed down from last year’s version. It’s  a bit lighter and has thinner side bezels, all wrapped in a nice-feeling rubbery  case. My only problem with the design is the abnormally-large top and bottom  bezels around the screen. They make the Nexus 7 look slightly out of proportion.  Overall, the Nexus 7 isn’t as eye-catching as the iPad Mini, but it’s definitely  not ugly either.

The Nexus 7 is the perfect size too. It’s small enough to hold in one hand,  but the 7-inch screen is large enough to enjoy videos, books, and games more  than you can on a tiny ~4-inch smartphone screen.

Thank you, TiA
