This past weekend I made my first roadtrip with my Nexus 7. It was so perfect for everything that I needed it for - google drive, pdf viewing, games and movies. I could not be happier with my Nexus 7 and Jelly Bean
Only major problem I have had with Nexus 7 is the headphone audio volume is too low. I checked online and found others have the same issue so it is not isolated to my Nexus 7. The same headphones have plenty of volume on other tablets including Kindle Fire where I have to turn the volume down at times while I can barely hear it on the Nexus 7 at full volume.
I have been using Kindle Fire at the gym to watch videos and was hoping to use Nexus 7 instead but the lack of volume for headphones in a noisy gym makes that a no go.
One other minor problem is that battery life isn't very good for Nexus 7 compared to other tablets (iPad and Kindle Fire). I usually charge those other tablets with quite a bit of use about once a week whereas the Nexus 7 doesn't last much more than a full day without requiring a recharge even with light usage. This morning it was down to 25% (yesterday afternoon it was 75+%) so I decided to turn it off to prevent the battery from completely draining before I got home from work.
Thanks. I did end up getting the nexus 7. I think the battery is fine. I had a Nook and used it a lot so I am used to charging it everyday. I don't see myself using headphones a lot, s I don't think that will be a problem. I am enjoying it so far. thanks again.
I preferred Nexus 7 over SGT 2 7.0, because Samsung is very slow to release Google OS updates while they customize their TouchWiz interface, also I ran few benchmark tests and found SGT 2 7.0 scored way below my Galaxy Note phone which is no match to a Quad Core Tegra tablet.
I am actually debating between the two myself. But the fact that the Nexus 7 doesn't support 3G is a huge let-down for me personally. Where I live, WiFi hot-spots are few and far between, so it does make a huge impact in my consideration. The lack of expandable memory is also disappointing, but one I can easily get past. Might wait for the next iteration of either device before I pick!
