Google Nexus 7 Problems Review

Goolge’s new tables Nexus 7 has great hardware specification & low price. With powerful Nvidia Tegra quad core CPU & 7″ 1280 x 800 IPS display, Nexus 7 surprised most people for only $199. However, any products has is shortcomings. We have see some problems of the new Google Nexus 7 tablet.


Nexus 7 has no rear facing camera

In my opinion, the rear facing camera is more useful than the front facing camera. The rear facing camera work under many conditions when you need to keep picture details at the time you are taking picture. Except for taking photos, the rear facing camera should be very useful when used for 2D code scanning or recording business card.

However, the Nexus 7 tablet don’t has a rear facing camera makes it a little frustrating.

Nexus 7 has no external storage support

Nexus 7 has 8GB and 16GB solutions. But both of them don’t support storage card slot. This is for a compact design intent. However, this is not a good idea for customers, especially for those who always watching videos on tablet. If the Nexus 7 can support TF card, many people will choose the 8GB version and then expand storage with storage card. It is much cheaper than purchase a 16GB version Nexus 7.

Nexus 7 has no 3G or 4G version

The Nexus 7 only support Wi-Fi network. The low price makes it can not afford to add a 3G or 4G network module. I think there should be many people will willing to pay more if google can offer a mobile network support. It will be a better solution than iPad if the Nexus 7 can support mobile network.

No rich content

Nexus 7 is much similar to Kindle Fire. But, Kindle Fire is based on largest online store Amazon. Hence, Kindle Fire can offer much more books or videos. After Nexus 7 revealed, Kindle Fire is expected get updated in the near future. If Google can not offer  rich service for Nexus 7, its market will be taken by Kindle Fire gradually.

However, with powerful hardware specs & great support from Google, the Nexus 7 is still the best choice if you want to try an Android tablet.
