- Should i buy a Nexus 7
Looking to buy a tablet for surfing the net etc instead of shutting myself away upstairs on the pc and was wondering what you all think to the Nexus . Also up for a phone upgrade in the next few days that is likely to be Android based so thought the 2 would work well together . Also noticed that Amazon are launching the new Fire HD shortly , could this be worth waiting for ?Posted 7 years ago
Wife has already got an Ipad 2 which i like , but it is hers as she’s been hinting at alot lately , but i don’t want to spend that kind of money .dhMember
Amazon uses a different marketplace by default, so your app purchases from your android phone won’t show up on your amazon tablet. You will probably be able to root it soon thought to avoid that.
Personally if it was me, I would wait until we here what the price of windows 8 tablet will be, might be quite good that…if price is competitive.Posted 7 years agospeed12Member
Been playing with my Dads Nexus 7 this weekend and it’s a very impressive bit of kit. I have an iPad myself an the Nexus is as good if not better in some ways. Wasn’t convinced by a 7″ screen originally but it fits very nicely in the hand. Screen is great, very quick, feels great. And great price!Posted 7 years agouponthedownsMember
The Nexus 7 is a nice bit of kit- fast and smooth. The 7 inch screen is great for reading books but not so good for web browsing- if you put an unzoomed web page on the screen the characters are too small to read and you have to then zoom in and start navigating up, down and side to side around the page with gestures. 10 inch screen is much better for surfing as when you put the whole width of the page across the screen the characters are big enough to read and you just have to scroll up and down which I find a much better browsing experience.
Personally I’m holding fire and hoping Google come out with the Nexus 10 soon which I think they’ll have to to answer Amazons Kindle HD 10 incher.Posted 7 years agoEdukatorMember
My Nexus 7 was sticking in the lower gears and then changing up randomly. 4th gear was making nasty cracking noises under load. I took it out of the hub, gave it all a good lube with gearbox oil and it now changes nicely. However the cracking noises in 4th gear under load continue. Any ideas?Posted 7 years agoTom BMember
I got mine through mobile.co.UK galaxy s2 plus nexus on voda with 600 minutes unlimited texts and 1gb data. 33 quid per month. You can get much better deals on orange though. Unfortunately I don’t get a signal at home on Orange so had to opt for the voda deal. Well chuffed though, and the tablet is awesome. (Typed from my nexus):-)Posted 7 years agoDobboMember
Got mine yesterday, the new version of Android is so slick it’s a pleasure to use. Also as I use Gmail, Google Calender, Picasa and Play it just syncs and fits straight in.
You can manage all your apps from your PC using play over the wirless as well which is great for browsing and managing all the apps.
Great for gaming doing Osmos HD on it is a real time waster…
For the price I don’t see what there is to loose getting it now, if something significantly better comes out in 6 months time I’ll get that and give this to the GF as a “present” 😆Posted 7 years ago
Question (I’m not very good techy) – if I buy a Nexus 7 – is it easy to link up to my separate 3g phone to use the mobile’s internet allowance – is it easy/just a simple cable/synch? Thinking of getting a S2 on 3 and buy the Nexus cash. If I was to use the phones internet connection on the Nexus would I use the phones processor speed as well? (bad).Posted 7 years agoDobboMember
On the phone set the wireless as a hotspot give it a name and key then just connect the Nexus to the phones wireless network (same as any other wireless network).
I use the GF’s S2 on Orange to do it, works well.
EDIT: the 3G would limit the speed not he phones processor I would imagine.Posted 7 years ago
