Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review
I've had it for a couple of weeks now and am still to recharge the battery. This is a massive selling point for me as my Apple batteries seem to die incredibly quickly, particularly when using Bloglovin'. Another plus is that you can have different secure 'profiles,' allowing others to use the same tablet whilst keeping the owner's profile totally secure. I'm excited to share it with Ash so he can do all his Christmas shopping online... for presents for me ;)
The only negative feature is the camera. First of all, it took me AGES to find. The Nexus doesn't come with a camera app so I had to download 'Camera Launcher for Nexus 7' from the Play Store. When I did find it, I realised that there was only a front-facing camera. Sure, it's a total treat for selfies (see below!), but not so great when you want to Instagram things which aren't your own face.
All in all, the Nexus has taught me that Apple isn't the only way forward, and that the Android market can be just as satisfying - if not more so. I am loving having this tablet to whip out when my iPhone screen isn't quite big enough, and it's definitely winning over my iPad right now.
Google Nexus 7 is available from Argos from £159.99.
Are you an Apple lover like me, or do you use an Android? Which tablet do you prefer?
PS. Thank you Ash for taking these photos of me in Cafe Nero, Wells!
