    Default Nexus 7: Any good?

    Hi I'm thinking if getting a nexus 7 2013....I'm new to tablets and need to know how good it is, I recently got myself a kobo arc, its ok but can't get all the apps I'd really like, I.e real racing 3, fb pages manager, and football live streaming etc.
    My biggest dilemma is a nexus 7 2013 or a Acer icona 10.1 inch 32gb.....being a Google tablet would all apps be available? Would all the latest software updates be first on Google nexus?
    Thanks in advance for your help

    While I don't have a Nexus tablet myself, I have seen many people praise it throughout the forums.
    As for your choices, I would pick the 7" tablet. My personal opinion is 10" ones get to be too big to hold for prolonged periods of time.
    Not all apps are configured to be tablet apps, but you should have many more options than the Kobo.

    No contest--get the Nexus 7. It will be generally be more compatible with apps than the Acer 10" tab, and from a performance standpoint, the 2013 N7 blows most every other tablet out of the water. I agree with Golfdriver97, the 10" size isn't very portable, while the 7" size is very versatile.

    I received mine on Christmas day, and now I only use my laptop to pay bills. As for a 10 inch tab they are a pain after a while.

    Like Joe_Fresh I got my Nexus 7 for Christmas. This is my first tablet. I really can't find anything negative to say about it, and I'm a picky consumer. What is the model number of the Acer Iconia you are considering? The A3?

    You can compare specs here:
    Acer Iconia Tab A3 vs. Asus Google Nexus 7 (2013) - GSMArena.com
    If that isn't the model you were considering you can change it at the box at the bottom of the page.

    You should also look here:
    Tablet Finder and Compare

    The Nexus 7 is a solid choice. The size is perfect and it's one of the best values you can get from a named brand tablet. I have a Note 10.1 2014 and the Nexus 7 and I spend 75% of my tablet time on the Nexus.

    I've had both models of the Nexus 7. They make for a fantastic 'remote' for media of all types (photos, videos, music, etc.). Check it out:

    Nexus 7 is absolutely phenomenal!.....if you are willing to accept the fact that there is a better than average chance that you will have to go through the headache of exchanging a few first to get a good one.

    In my view, the Nexus 7 is indeed the best tablet at 7 inches you can buy, and at a price you can't ignore.

    No doubt it's a great tablet, especially for the price! Just saying you might have to "try" a few times before you get a good one.

    I come from a history of tablets. I had a Xoom, and my wife has had a couple of iPads. A year ago, I upgraded my Xoom to a Nexus 10 tablet, and love it. But, I always had that nag to own a Nexus 7 also, although I knew that I probably wouldn't use it much. Eventually, desire won over practicality, plus a great sale price won out, and I purchased a Nexus 7. Now I use it 70% of the time, over the Nexus 10, mainly for the convenience of grabbing it for something quick, or sticking it in my pocket and running. I love my Nexus 10, but am madly in love with my Nexus 7. It is absolutely fantastic! Don't pay attention to the negatives on here. They are probably Apple fanboys. My Nexus tablets, especially the N7, runs circles around my wife's iPad. (Don't tell her I said that.)

    I remain of the opinion that the N7 is still the best buy you can get right now. The Note tablets and Xperia Tablet Z are ok but cost too much for what you get, and I prefer the N7 to the Gpad (both regular and GE versions) even when the Gpad is on sale. I doubt very much anyone is going to surprise me with a $250 tablet I'm going to like better between now and the 2014 N7. If they do, I'll still hold off until the next Nexus tablet hits the shelves regardless before I decide.
