Q & As

Much improved My young son has an original model Nexus, so I bought this Nexus for use with Android apps at work. This 2013 version is a good advance. The screen resolution is crisp and sharp, but the biggest improvement is with the battery life - sleep mode doesn't drain the battery as the old model does. 04 September 2014
Great piece of kit I bought this as a Birthday present for my wife who is generally not interested in technology at all. I was going to buy an ipad mini but she has an android phone so wanted to keep the same OS for her. I was a bit dubious as I have a Nexus 10 that I think is very poor when put up against an ipad but the reviews swung it for me. I'm glad I did as it's an amazing little device for the money.. Great screen, perfect size, fast and responsive. Battery life could be a bit better but it's not bad by any standard. I would thoroughly recommend. Service from John Lewis was excellent as usual. 03 September 2014
Like it a lot Has some great features, such as the number of tabs that can be kept open. A few quirks I'm still getting used to, but overall,great. Would be better if it were a Nexus 8, but that's just my eyesight! 25 August 2014
Absolutely SUPERB I spent a long time trying to decide which tablet to buy before settling on the Google Nexus 7. I am really pleased with my purchase as it does absolutely everything I need it to do; efficiently, effortlessly & superbly. Compared to the tablets I have previously owned, this is by far the best. 05 August 2014
better than an iPad! At first I was considering getting the iPad mini with retena display (as I take a keen interest in photography so a high resolution screen was a plus for me) after a little reasrch the nexus 7 dident seem to be the most powerful tablet on the market but in its price range it destroys the competition. I have run some very heavy games on the nexus with no lag at all. The narrower size of the nexus means that it can be held in one hand with ease and comfort, the sound from this divice is fantastic as it has dual speakers and finally the disaply is stunning, very sharp colours not oversaturated like other diveces and the refresh rate is high so video is smooth. 01 August 2014
Excellent Android Tablet Fab Google Tablet - does everything an IPad does and more for a fraction of the price. Well built and great size for a ladies handbag or satchel - love it and would recommend it. 30 July 2014
A treat to own. Simple to use, but with so many uses. Fulfils the promises of the product description, 22 July 2014
Good value for money Works really well but would help first timers like me if there was some sort of instruction manual! Have to rely on my grandchildren for help! 22 July 2014
