The Nexus 7 from Google was released in the month of July, last year and was the talk of the town at that time. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 had another fate: people were expecting too much from the tablet and it came somewhat like a disappointment. We’re going to compare these two tablets and figure out which are the differences and which one would be the best buy.
Asus Google Nexus 7
Google and Asus didn’t focus too much on the design of this device, the simplicity of the outlook leaving some people wondering if it’s even worth looking into the specs the two companies invested in this tablet. Let’s take a closer look and figure out for ourselves what Google and Asus wanted to achieve with this device.
Design & Display
We are really pleased with what specs we’re seeing in the display department. The tablet is equipped with an IPS LCD display that is LED backlit and that measures 7 inches. The screen resolution rendered on this display is of 1200 x 1920 pixels, while the pixel density has 323 pixels per inches. The result in graphics is quite great. The display also has multi touch capabilities, being able to recognize 10 fingers at a time. The Corning Gorilla Glass is present for a plus in screen protection.
Specifications, Camera & Battery
The processor that powers the Asus Google Nexus 7 is a Krait working at 1.5 GHz paired up with the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset from Qualcomm – this guarantees a smooth performance. It also has 1.5 GB of RAM backing up the processor. The operating system the tablet runs on is Android Jelly Bean, which you can upgrade to Android KitKat. As for battery, the unit is non removable but holds a very impressive capacity of 3950 mAh.
Unfortunately, the tablet does not showcase a SIM card slot, which means that GPRS and EDGE services are not available.
If you like Asus and Google’s tablet, then you can purchase the 16 GB (internal memory) version of this device at the price of $210.00.
