Editor's Review
By Seow Tein Hee, Digital Life, The Straits Times | 31-05-2013

In this line-up, Google's Nexus 7 - made by Asus - is undoubtedly the definitive affordable Android tablet.

At 340g, the tablet did not strain my arm even after an hour of reading. With its 10.5mm profile, the tablet fitted snugly in my bag.

The textured rubber back provides a firm grip.

The 7-inch display is adequate for reading webpages or an e-book, while the screen resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels is not too shabby for viewing high-definition movies.

But its limited internal storage and the lack of a microSD slot will require you to be vigilant about storage housekeeping.

This is the tablet for Android fans who want plain vanilla firmware. This model has the advantage of being first in line to receive the latest Android updates. Its Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor deals smoothly with resource-intensive games such as Dead Trigger and movies with fast action scenes.

With moderately intensive use - Websurfing, checking e-mail and the occasional e-book reading - the tablet managed more than a day's worth before its batteries needed recharging.

The Nexus 7 is by far the best Android tablet for those on a budget. The big drawback is its limited internal storage.
