Hi guys, here is the final instalment of my Test Drive of the New Nexus 7.
I would like to tell you about the moment when it would not boot up or the other occasion when the battery just didn’t last for any length of time. Sorry, I missed the time when the screen display was not what I expected at all. But, unfortunately none of these things have happened and the unit has performed above and beyond the call of duty….
I charged my battery on Wednesday night for usage throughout Thursday and beyond. I did not need to charge it again until Saturday night when it asked me to plug in the charger. I am more than pleased with the battery life and the loadings that it is handling. I have used it extensively and I even decided to run a small game program called Epic Citadel which can benchmark how the graphics are being handled by running it thought the Unreal game engine at HD with all the lighting and shading crunching away….it came in as a premium device in rating and ran comfortably at 56 Fps.
I have ran Google hangouts on it with video function and found the clarity of picture and sound to be brilliant and only limited by the person’s kit at the other end. My browsing, emails and Social Media updates have been no problem to this device and in my leisure time have read a few chapters of a book I am ploughing my way through.
It fits neat into the inside pocket of a number of my jackets and allows my hands to be free to carry other items.
So let’s summarise the whole experience: –
- Light weight and fits into hand and pockets well
- Fast and powerful handling all my daily needs
- Screen resolution smashes all expectations
- Sound is very clear on video calls and music
- Updates and restores your account effortlessly
- Battery life is the best I have yet experienced from all my phones and tablets I have used ion the past.
- Updates software and keeps you up to date on fixes etc.
Yes, I can only recommend the whole experience and I have certainly not come up against any of the problems that may have been reported online about the New Nexus 7 so far.
What tablet are you driving just now and how do you feel about it and how it operates?
Watch this space for more tech test drives and the future of mobile screens on our devices.
Nexus 7 test drives – Thanks for doing all the hard work for those of use who have been considering purchasing a tablet for some time now, but never got beyond the thought process as so little was understood about capability or purpose (after all I have a smart phone and a laptop!)
Having now read the detailed test drives of both the old and new Nexus 7 this has confirmed that this is the one that I should be seriously considering.
Thanks Marion. Yes this all links into phone and the cloud. So all end up on my desktop. It is potable and I link it to my phone for Internet wherever I go. Very useful.
