Wi-Fi Only 32 GB     See other variants reviews Score: 70.7 / 100

Google Nexus 7 (2013) is a breath-taking portable tablet released back in the year 2013, with a comfortable 7 inches display, a very fast 1.5 GHz Quad-Core CPU, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 megapixels front side camera. But it's time to get into some more details.

The Google Nexus 7 (2013) ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip, including an exceptional Quad-Core processing unit ticking at 1500 MHz with a large 2 GB RAM. To collaborate with graphic calculations, it also has a 400 MHz Adreno 320 GPU. A key feature of this tablet is its inmense 32 GB internal memory and although it doesn't include an SD card slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications without having to worry about filling it.

This time, it seems like Google forgot about weight optimization in this 10.23 ounces tablet device. The Google Nexus 7 (2013) is quite a compact tablet device, taking into consideration it features a 7" screen and it has just 7.87" long. This tablet is just 0.34 inches thick, making its way into the thinnest tablets podium.

This tablet features two cameras, a 5 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. This tablet also films videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD). Additionally, the camera features auto-focus.

This tablet is equipped with an absolutely amazing 1200 x 1920 7 inches display, giving this device a very detailed image quality. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 300 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch gestures.

This tablet counts with wi-fi connection (although it can't provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance data connection and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSPA and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This device also features many useful features as Wireless charging compatibility, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other tablet devices and accessories) and GPS, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet packs an incredible 3950 mAh Li-Polymer replaceable battery providing this tablet an extremely long battery life.

Google offers the Google Nexus 7 (2013) for 215 dollars, which is not a very good offer for this kind of portable tablet. This device is a great option for you it doesn't matter whether you need this device for work, want it mainly for social networks, you love taking photos or will use it to play tons of games.
