Re: I dropped my new nexus 7...
asus does not build tablets with drops in mind. they never do damage testing. the plastic on kids mcdonalds toys are stronger than what asus uses. you'd think they'd fill their tablets internals with foam by now to at least absorb some of the impact and keep internals from bending or flexing.....nope. I really wish google went to someone else to make the nexus 7......asus has horrible build quality across all of their products. every asus motherboard i've ever owned, had problems, and a few of them fried out of nowhere, taking other components with it. every asus monitor i've ever seen, had at least some backlight bleed if you looked close enough, and ANY backlight bleed is 100% considered a manufacturing defect since it's ENTIRELY avoidable with ease. anyone who tells you otherwise either doesn't know better or are soo used to asus products lack of quality control, that defective has become the norm.

while the nexus 7 has great specs and a great price, the internal components are more fragile than the screen itself, and the screen is pretty fragile as it is. it's less like glass and more like paper thin plastic. if you look at the internal design, there's huge portions of empty spaces behind the screen. the screen is essentially on a frame that runs along the border of the screen. it's like this product was designed to break eventually, and probably was.
