    Exclamation And the Nexus 7 Killer is...

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus

    Same size, Same weight, Same (roughly) Screen, Same Android.

    The Samsung 16GB can be had for same price as the Nexus 8GB if you look around.

    The BIG one. The Samsung has a SDcard slot.

    Anyone agree?

    Not for me.... Vanilla Android, AOSP support, easy unlocking, factory images for restoring, and a huge and growing development community for all nexus devices. Just my priorities, yours may differ.

    What he said.
    Vanilla Android here too.
    And very importantly IPS vs AMOLED.
    Would NOT touch Samsung.

    That tablet doesn't even bruise the Nexus 7, let alone kill it. Is that the table that just got ICS?

    I'm all for vanilla Android, and the latest updates.

    It has a PLS screen (basically IPS).

    CM10 Jelly Bean is no good?

    I literally spit out my coffee (just like in the movies) as I burst out laughing reading the title of this thread. Seriously Inferior screen, inferior CPU/GPU, weighs more, smaller battery and still on Ice Cream Sandwich and God knows if it will ever even get Jelly Bean. Lol, sir, lol. I need a good laugh now and again.

    This device trashes the SGT7+ and is 20 bucks cheaper.

    I don't think there will be a nexus killer. There is too great of a following in my opinion for the vanilla android and the things you can do with it.

    Laughing is good. I am half joking.
    It is slightly humerus how excited people are about this device from Google that doesn't bring anything to the table except a low retail price.

    You are right. It weighs 5 grams more.
    I'm not sure how much more time you'll get from 300mah with a slightly higher res. screen and the Tegra 3 on the Nexus. It's going to be pretty close.
    Exynos 4210 and Mali-400 with 1GB RAM is no slouch.

    Might want to double check the specs to refresh your memory.

    Yeah, they bring nothing to the table other than a quad core gaming beast with a 720p HD screen and stock Android, regarded by the review community to be the best 7 inch tablet at ANY price. Yep, nothing. The Samsung Galaxy 7+ is a significantly worse device in every single aspect aside from it's SD slot and the N7 has USB OTG. I can't image why you would suggest such an inferior device as a "Nexus Killer" unless you work for Samsung, or bought a SG7+ and are trying to justify your purchase.

    I'm well aware of the specs. They're not close at all.

    If an SD slot is what you care about, enjoy having nearly everything else sub-par in exchange.

    No way the 7+ is better then the Nexus 7.

    I will be rocking my N7 for at least 2-3 updates while the 7+ might see one.

    Pure Android without the need to root. USB OTG. Nuff said.

    Depends on usage and preference. By that logic, a 27" tablet would be better than a 10". Have fun lugging it around...

    That would no longer be a tablet, it then becomes a tv.

    I had a chance to play with the note 10.1 at work yesterday briefly... I really did like it... Especially with the use of the stylus.. Not enough to go buy it, but i really did like how it felt.

    Well it's a terrible multi-media device due to the lack of CODECs Samsung has on their devices (yay for relying on redundant 3rd party apps to do what other devices can do with stock apps, something I absolutely deplore), in addition to the lack of DRM support. It has poor Social Network integration compared to TouchWiz devices. Google has no standard Sync application, so media management is through MTP (Lol, especially if you own a Mac) and PIM management from a desktop is basically non-existent. Some of Samsung's modified apps are superior to their stock equivalents (No device backup/restore, etc. that matters to some people and can be a lifesaver at times). Samsung puts things like Music Recognition in the music app, for example, negating the need for third party apps like Shazam.

    There are lots of areas where stock Android is seriously lacking from a user experience standpoint (Google improved the UI tremendously, but many other shortcomings have gone untouched). That's why most people still buy TW/Sense/Motorola devices in lieu of Nexus devices even when they're on carriers on contract - even after the price drops.

    Not everyone buys a tablet for gaming, and not everyone will spend $199-249 for a 7" tablet to game on when something like a handheld gaming console (PS, Nintendo) or even a real console (XB360, PS3, Wii) which is way superior.

    No back camera on the Nexus 7, either, in addition to the lack of an SD Card Slot, making some applications useless on them, while completely usable on the GT7"+ (i.e. mobile video analysis apps like Coach's Eye).

    The screen resolution difference isn't a big deal, the Exynos performs well enough (and performance helped by the fact that it has to push less pixels), and the AMOLED screen has almost unlimited viewing Angles in addition to being incredibly power efficient if you know what you're doing, so for an enthusiast with a clue the GT7"+ will undoubtedly outlast the Nexus 7's battery, easily.

    I've used a BB Playbook (7" with same resolution) and the difference between that and 720p on a 7" tablet isn't really a factor, IMO.

    Hustle man,
    False. They are different--not inherently better. Better for some needs and useless or inferior for other purposes
