Pros: the performance of this tablet is blazingly fast as well as well above the expectations of many. Owing to the OS (Google Jelly Bean), this device provides no discomfort at all when you are switching tabs or toggling apps navigating through the menus and everything that can be done on this tablet. The frame rates are superb while the preloaded and updated apps from Google are a cherry on the top. Playing games is quite an enjoyment as the screen is vibrant and crisp. Being lighter than kindle this one is easier to carry around and also an improvement over the predecessors.

Cons: The worst part about Google Nexus 7 is more surprising than heart breaking and that is it does not have an expandable memory. Another feature that is missing from this small wonder is the HDMI port found on all of its rivals. The lack of any voice assistant to help you play with your device is also a big drawback as all the rest have this feature although you will find basic voice over search feature. The small size though does not provide much when reading magazines but the lack of creativity in design is also something that disappoints you.

Although Nexus 7 is winning hearts all across the realm of tablet world, it has a long way to go before it can really make a difference. Google ha s to do something about the expected features that are lacking in this device otherwise it will just fade away like many others.
