    Default Nexus 7 problems

    hey, I plan to buy a nexus 7 in the next few days. I heard the nexus is a great device but I looked at the reviews in amazon and I saw the most of it is bad.
    They tell on alot of bugs and problems, there is anything that I should know before i buy it? it's not a great device after all?
    Can you guys tell me if you also having a problems with the nexus?

    I had 2 Nexus 7s. One in August and One this month. Neither one of them had any problems. I didn't keep them because I wanted something larger but there were no problems with either unit. It's a good tablet.

    Great tablet, but unexpectedly crashes and reboots every couple of weeks. Tolerable, but an annoyance. Waiting to see if KitKat (or a factory reset) fixes this.

    I had GPS issues early on, but they fixed that in an update. Flawless and excellent device now. Keep in mind when reading reviews that people are FAR more likely to leave a review if they have a problem than if their device works as expected, so problems appear inflated. I don't think most people are having issues, they're just enjoying their devices and not leaving reviews.

    I've had horrible touchscreen issues since the update that supposedly fixed touchscreen issues on two serperate Nexus 7's even the newest update didn't help at all hoping they fix this or mine will be going to Craigslist.

    Since JSS15Q, I've had no problems. Prior to the update though, the GPS was buggy.

    Have you done factory reset since the updates? My GPS issues weren't initially fixed by the update that addressed the GPS issues, but a factory reset took care of it, and it's been perfect since.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you talking about any time you speak into the mic, or only specific situations, like saying, "OK Google"?

    Probably a hardware defect withbthe mic itself, good thing is if you bought it from amazon just send it back for a replacement. Amazon is great with returns.They even pay shipping, you just print out the label to tape on the box, and can even schedule a ups pick up at your house right from then website.

    thank you brosko, I have requested return and posted back as in Jersey they don't have a collection facility (they will refund the postage too) Another is dispatching now, excellent service from Amazon. I just hope the replacement doesn't have the same defect
    Thanks once again

    Obviously, on a forum like this you're bound to get a disproportionate number of messages from people who have had problems. My N7 2013 is working beautifully and none of my friends with N7s, 5 of them, have complaints.

    There are now four in our family all working with no problems. Maybe it's more than just luck. Maybe it's well designed hardware and software with the occasional lemon as with any mass produced product.

    Also, obviously on a forum, like say, a samsung forum, you are bound to get a disproportionate number of people who have had problems with that particular device as compared to those that are there just to praise the device. Makes perfect sense, that's what forums are for, right? Of course.

    The problem is that when comparing a nexus 7 forum to a forum for another device, (lets say, samsung again for example) on the nexus forum there is a seemingly higher percentage of total posts on the forum that pertain to defects in the device.

    In other words it seems like almost 1/4 of all posts on any given nexus 7 forum are complaining about a defect, whereas on the majority of other device forums the thread about a defective device/problem seem to be fewer and further between. Or so it seems, but
    maybe I'm wrong?

    btw I love my nexus 7!
