Engadget Review

The Nexus 7 is definitely the best bang for your buck, and is still affordable enough for most budget-savvy shoppers.

Pros
  • Beautiful 1080p display
  • Improved performance
  • Incredibly loud sound
  • Wireless charging
Cons
  • Weirdly proportioned bezels
  • Battery life not as long as the original Nexus 7's
