New Nexus 7 vs original Nexus 7

Last week, Google announced the latest addition to the Nexus family, the successor to last year's wildly popular Android tablet, the Nexus 7. But is the new Nexus 7 a worthy addition to the family, a worth upgrade to the original?

We've had the 2013 Nexus 7 in our labs for several days now, and figured it would be appropriate to compare it with last year's model. We know it's updated and offers newer specifications, but is it worth the upgrade? Watch the video to find out!

I can't believe how Google gave us a crappy firmware on the old Nexus 7.
It's so slow and buggy

My local Walmart has Nexus 7 2013 for $150! Should I get it?

Автор Objectified Cross ( назад)
That's the fucking problem right there.
They cheaped out on the fucking Tegra 3 model they used.
Maybe if they used the fucking T30 or T33. But noo it had to be the slowest
model. The T30L.

To fix a nexus 7 2012 (might also work on 2013) that won't boot. Step 1.
Hook the tablet up to a USB charger. Step 2. Wait 50 minutes and then
unplug the tablet. Step 3. Press and hold the power button and when the
screen lights up, plug it back into the charger. Step 4. Let it charge to
100% and then unplug the tablet and turn it on!

it is sent by some youtubers that installing the upgrade of lollipop 5.1
will fix the lag and other issues in the 2012 version of Nexus 7 is that
or should I just go ahead and buy the new up to date Nexus 7 and will it
give me the same problems later on.

Автор XMasie Thomas ( назад)
I love the tablet except for after 3 months to 4 months of use it slowed
down so much that's barely usable Does the newer 2013 newer version slow
down to a crawl Bailey unusable with a 45 seconds to a minute lag time like
the 2012 version??

My old nexus 7 is still holding up really well and is actually a lot better

I just did an Antutu benchmark on my 2012 Nexus 7, and it hit almost 18000.
I don't know where you're getting "barely reaching 12000"...

(I know, it's old video.)
But I hope the Lollipop will be fast as Google said, up to 4x. I want
faster Nexus 7 2012 !

What did he do to slow his old model down? I was testing it against my old
model and mine seems as fast as the new version. I guess he did what they
do when they compare Apple and Android i.e. have programs running in the
background on the Android device. I expect he did this to make the video
better as if there were not much difference it wouldn't be so interesting
to watch.

yes the old nexus 7 slowed down but did u try to clear the cache forcestop
apps or anything?

Автор Robyn Madsen ( назад)
Also, the charging port on my nexus has broken completely. I've gone
through about 4 chargers in the last 5 months and this whole time I've
thought it was a problem with the chargers I was buying but lo and behold,
the port itself has completely blown out! I've decided not to get it fixed
and instead I bought the official nexus charging dock on Amazon this
morning. Hopefully it'll charge just as fast.

You can pick up a 2012 nexus in the UK for £99 in a lot of places at the
moment. It's not as high spec as the 2013 model, but it's a steal for a
basic tablet.

Even tho I got the older tablet,I think the 2nd is better!but compare the
older nexus 7 vs iPad mini or air! d:

Автор Gary Kennedy ( назад)
OK I agree, i was hyped in 2012 when Google announced their first 7 inch
tablet. Got it and was very happy with it; but looking back now, yeah it
isn't all that great. It still gets the job done however so I'm keeping it
until i see what 2014 has to offer.

Автор Andrew Hickey ( назад)
Well my original nexus 7 does not drag or stutter at all after a year of
use... of course I use cache cleaners etc..I wonder if the reviewer did
likewise before this comparison test? I do think the new model has a better
screen, no doubt, but I would question some of the other performance issues
highlighted ...

I think the lag in first gen nexus 7 has been fixed with "fstrim" in 4.3.2.
It was because of the storage drive.

I own the new version and enjoy it very much and glad to see mine is
better. Than the old one. I have had Asus tablets before and found on some
of the new models they skipped on some features but not with one it really
good like it better than my Ipad 3.

was so laggy and has low speaker..

I got the new (2nd generation) Nexus 7 in July and since day one it's had a
problem being used on surfaces. The touchscreen becomes mostly unresponsive
if it's not touching something that's grounded (myself, sitting on my
laptop, being plugged in, etc.). Do you know of any workaround?

Автор The SuperUser ( назад)
If you optimize and maintain your old nexus 7 correctly, it will outperform
any new one easily. If you get any lag at all on the old one, you have
poorly maintained it.

Dude, your Nexus 7 2012 is way more slower than mine! Yes, the 2013 model

How come there such a lot of spammy post crap on these videos. I personally
wanted to earn real money via the internet and I didn’t believe in a single
thing. The thing that helped me was in fact looking at proof of cash flow.
I discovered it within the Zutore Cash System site (Google it) and I
started earning cash online.
