    Default What is the thing you dislike about the Nexus 7 the most?

    I haven't even been using mine a week yet, so I'd love to hear from those of you who have had it for months. My personal worst is editing typos. It is SO hard to touch right in a word where the typo is to edit to mistake. Even waiting for the blue tab to come up and trying to drag that around isn't very effective because they don't zoom and shift the bubble up so that it's not under your thumb. That is one thing that was great about my iphone 3GS, it would zoom in where you're touching to drag the cursor around and have a little zoomed bubble ABOVE where you're touching. No zoom AND no shifting means you have to hold the device at a slant to even see a tiny cursor.

    Yes, I have to agree with that. My Razr Maxx's Swype keyboard has 2 big advantages over the N7's Swype-like keyboard--it has directional cursor movement keys, and I can capitalize words easily by swyping from the first letter to above the keyboard, and then proceeding to the 2nd letter.

    But the HUGE advantage of the N7 over anything iOS is that you can do something about it--i.e., install a better keyboard!

    I wish it had MHL or mini HDMI would make it perfect in my eyes. I have used DLNA when I can but it's not always easy to do so.

    Well, the things i dislike the most is there is no MHL or mini HDMI like what Randall2580 said and maybe that it doesnt have a microphone Jack or rear camera, other than that I love all the features and overall the entire device

    I dislike most that it can neither create any WiFi hotspot (ad hoc or infrastructure) nor can it connect to an ad-hoc hotspot.

    I love my keyboard, I'm using the swiftkey 3 trial. I dont think that relates to selecting the screen. I'm always going to make typos.

    Also, it doesn't seem to continue loading pages in the background when you switch tabs or browsers. =/

    My biggest annoyance is the power consumption while sleeping. I want something like Windows' hibernate where it's OFF for power purposes when the magnet in a smart case puts it to sleep. Instead, the Nexus 7 seems to be a light sleeper that wakes periodically to do stuff, even if it keeps the screen dark.

    I dislike the lack of a rear camera...

    And as others have said, you should try out some alternate keyboards...

    I use Smart Keyboard Pro and LOVE the Custom Auto Text...

    I setup 3 letter acronyms for emails / paragraphs that I send often and only have to type 3 letters ...

    Check your battery stats to see what app(s) are waking it. That is the source of your problem...

    I personally leave Wifi on during sleep so that Gmail and Reader refresh...

    I dislike the hairline crack that mysteriously appeared in the lower left corner of the screen.

    I'd say the lack of a rear camera. I can't really use my Nexus 7 to scan papers. Yes, I tried. It was a horrible experience. lol

    I also wish I could add an SD card.

    Everything else I absolutely love.

    What I really don't like is that it doesn't have a rear camera.

    After reading an article way back when (cnet I think) about how google was selling these at $10 over cost, I think I most dislike all the whinny babies out there who don't seen to understand that in the real world it's "Price, Quality, Speed,.... pick any two"....

    I can't stand the glare on the screen when outside or in the gym, and the fact that everything I download that isn't from the app store is too dark for me to view unless I am in an almost totally dark room.

    My biggest annoyance with the Nexus7 is it's lack of ability to show up as a drive letter on a connected computer. MTP is a rather lame substitute.

    Don't like how easily the screen turns on while in my pocket. I've sent quite a few "ahv a7r 2@$ tonight %43^d aaaf" messages to people.

    With the next iteration of the N7 in the works, now is a good time for threads like these... the hope is that Google/ASUS improve upon a great tablet... the N7 is awesome but does have some flaws...

    None of them are deal breakers (otherwise I wouldn't have bought one!) but I would have liked

    SD slot
    HDMI out or Miracast (preferably)

    but I love that it's light, quick, easy to pick up and use, has 32Gb and I consider it great value.

    You need to check what apps are awake. I shut my case about 11pm with 100% charge and when I open it about 6am still have 100% That's with WiFi left on.
