  • Features Vanilla android rocks harder than any oem skin out there. 1st updates. Solid quality. great!
  • Display Sharpest and brightest in its time... and holds up a year later. great!
  • Battery life Battery life is awesome, its the charging time that people have a problem with... heard the pogo pin connector charges it faster. good
  • Ease of use Vanilla android, nuff said great!
  • Storage capacity 16 gb. Nexus products teaches people to use the cloud. Seriously anyone walking around with 8-14 gb of photos and videos on their gadget deserves to lose them. great!
  • Design and form factor Large front facing stereo speakers + snap in magnetized cover= best tablet form factor. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) 1lb, not that heavy... great!
  • Durability Rubber back... pretty resistant... great!
Detailed review
The good: Display, vanilla android, updates from google, zippy, front facing speakers. Best tablet experience ever.
The bad: charge time, chrome browser could step it up some, large bezzels ( just knit picking now)
The bottom line: had it for a year, just got the new nexus 7... I still find that I prefer this one. Hardware could use an update... notice a few lags here and there, nothing major... oh yeah, really really nice display in here.
