dealsasus google nexus 7 7" 32 gb internet tablet for…


Recent reports on slowdown after 6+ months of use have turned me off of this device. I've always had a lot of faith in the Google experience devices but it appears that Asus stocked these with some rather poor quality memory sticks


@banerules: All SSD (flash ram) storage devices slow down as storage is filled and spare space goes away. The slowdowns on Nexus 7 devices are largely ameliorated simply by deleting a few gigs of files and freeing up some spare area.


@banerules: All tablets will eventually succumb to this issue. But you can't add "memory sticks" to a tablet mobo, and even so, RAM has nothing to do with such. The tablet has bloat-ware but that's where flashing comes in handy. If you were running an Android device, it's necessary to perform this action to allow room.


I've had mine for over 6 months with constant use and it's still as fast as the day I bought it.


I pre-ordered it when new and have had it about a year now and it was only slow when completely filled. The 32GB model would be able to hold quite a bit before slowing down. That said, it has been a year and a new model should be out soon.


Can someone comment on how the Nexus 7 stacks up against a modded Nook HD 7? I got the Nook last month and wanted to gauge how much buyer's remorse I should have. I love the screen on the Nook, but hate the skin/UI.


Might want to mention it is a refurbished model.


It is widely rumored that a new model will be released in July.


@uhmbob: If you hate the UI, the Nexus 7 will be a better product. Honestly though, I'd wait a month to see what else comes out. It can't hurt, the price of the Nexus 7 can only go down.


Straight from Google is the only way to buy an Android device. All the 3rd party skinning done by amazon, b&n, samsung, etc just craps up the device. Also, because it is straight android, you can actually get OS upgrades instead of running 2+yr old code.

I have one and I don't like the flex the tablet has, but you'll see that in about any plastic-bodied device.


@sgrizzle: I would agree with you, but honestly, I absolutely love my Galaxy Note II. It offers tons of useful features that Google hasn't added yet. I'm still a huge Nexus fan but was surprised at how much Samsung has improved their UI.


@banerules: omg. Listen to the other people here. You see ONE report on some damn show and you take that as gospel. You have a wealth of information at your fingertips. Use it. It will show you that it is not something that "just happens" with this tablet. Grab it. It's fast. Don't fill the damn thing up with useless apps.
