Q & As

Awesome device, can't fault it The best tablet I've had (well the second!). It was recommended by a friend, and he was right. It feels heavy for it's size, but is solid. Does everything you'd expect, with great updates as it's a Google branded device. 7" is smaller than my last tablet, but it works well and is more comfortable to use and carry. 30 July 2014
Wonderful bit of kit I bought this as a birthday present for my wife, we had already bought three of the original 2012 nexus 7s when they came out for myself and kids so we knew what we were buying. But the latest version is sleeker, has a better screen, forward & rear facing camera and just feels/looks better. The wife was delighted with the gift and is looking forward to getting her music, movies and books installed on one device. We chose John Lewis mainly due to the excellent service we had received in the past but the two year warranty is also very reassuring. I would strongly recommend a nexus 7 over any fruit based alternative, and also very strongly recommend the Newcastle branch of John Lewis as they have never let us down. 19 July 2014
seems good for the price I have been largely pleased with my Google tablet. A bit more help and information setting it up would be a bonus and I think my tablet has a flickering screen so will have to be replaced. 12 April 2014
Thankful for the new age I've been retired for twenty years and have 4 computers, Windows 7 and 8. I didn't think I needed a Tablet as well, but the Nexus 7 is quite incredible! I can set alarms, record reminders on my calender, translate to speak with foreigners, control the films and music from my computers to my TVs, all by voice command. Life has suddenly been made simple in my old-age - I just hope my mind stays alert enough to see the many advances which I'm sure are still to come. Enjoy a Nexus 7 while you still can... 08 April 2014
Better than an iPad I gave up my iPad and bought a Nexus 7 because it is pure Google and therefore not filled with manufacturers own apps. After six months I find it reliable and so easy to use. It is so much lighter than my iPad so I am able to read in bed with ease. I have been an Apple user for twenty years but cost and poor reliability have finally made me switch to Nexus products. They are so much better, I wish I had done this before! 08 April 2014
Disappointed I researched tablets and went for this one - click and collect, collected it in store on Saturday, set it up and fully charged it that evening (all was well and I was enjoying using it) and switched it off. Monday evening I tried to switch it on - it went to the loading symbol and stayed there for 10 hours until the charge ran out. Tuesday back to John Lewis who gave a refund (they would have given a replacement but I didn't want that). Poor show for the Nexus, excellent customer service from John Lewis and back to the drawing board for me. 02 April 2014
Loving our nexus 7 We have had our nexus 7 for a few weeks now and it's a great device. It gets used in our house several times a day for checking email, social media, internet browsing, video watching, note taking, weather forecasts, and more. We love the multiuser feature so everyone can have their own profile. 04 March 2014
Good software poor hardware This was the first Android-based product in a household filled with Apple devices. It was purchased as a gift for our daughter. On paper and in initial use it was clearly a better value and performing product than a basic iPad Mini, but within four months it fell apart - literally. The charging point (a micro USB type) fouled the connecting pin and pulled it out of its housing. This also created a loose connection. It has been sent for repair/replacement by John L, but it will be sold on regardless by us and replaced with an iPad Mini, which uses the simpler and more robust lightning charge lead. Why? Because it would appear to be a common fault and we have never had a problem with any of our Apple products over the past 10 years or so. 25 February 2014
