[Official] Google Nexus 7 Owners Club - Page 138

post #1371 of 2571
Just read that the Nexus 7 is only capable of 3G and not 4G. Can anyone confirm this? So this Sim card wouldn't work if I tried. If that's the case, I'd rather not pay $50 extra as well as extra $ for a data plan just for 3G speeds. Well, this guy doesn't know what he's talking about so I don't think I trust him. At this price, it's pretty much used+free case or brand new without one. Do they still have the play store $25 credit on buying this new?

Also, does rooting void the warranty?

Well I have an HTC Rezound, it has terrible battery life on 4G and I heard somewhere that HTC phones don't make good tethers? (Something with Foxfi)

I use my ATT Galaxy Note i717 running Novena.DXLJ2 ROM to tether to my nexus 10 and gf iPad 3 and it worked great. Battery drains on the note even when plugged in but can use all 3 devices flawless and I have 3 batteries for my note.

Hey guys, I have been keeping an eye out on one of these... Mainly one just for book reading, quick web browsing, chatting and movie viewing on the go...
To tell you the truth, I played with it at MicroCenter and it just seemed a bit thick, thick framing, and the lack of MHL (HDMI) and no MicroSD slot is what prevents me from getting this...

I have an iPad 1, which my son basically owns, and it was perfect for what I listed above (except the lack of movie viewing of MVK files)...

The 10 inch iPad was a perfect size for typing as a keyboard... How is this for the experienced users? Especially ones who also own an iPad?
I am an android person, but one thing I do not like about Android is the keyboard which Apple tends to exceed at (my opinion)... I tend to make a lot more mistakes(on my Galaxy S II 4.2 keyboard - also tried swype, swift x, and just stick with the stock android keyboard), and upon using the Nexus 7, it seemed almost the same...

I agree with you that Apple has the keyboard down. I don't like the variation between the iPhone and iPad (keyboard), but that's a different story. The keyboard is ever-improving on Android, though (IMO). If you like the 10-inch size of the iPad, going to the Nexus 7 is probably going to be a huge change. The actual size of the device is about half the size of an iPad. This benefits it, though, because it lets you pretty much type without extreme stretching (landscape might obviously be harder with smaller hands).

I still like my Nexus 7 over my Fiance's Ipad 2. I find that her Ipad is too big and clunky for my tastes. Now thats not to say that I wouldnt enjoy an Ipad Mini. I like the smaller tablet way better. I have a dodocase on my Nexus 7 and it feels just like I am holding a small journal. Not very heavy or anything like that.

As for typing I have never had much trouble with the nexus 7 but I can't honestly say that I've written out very many long things on it either. If you feel like you will be using it for note taking you could always get a stylus and use some of the apps made to take advantage of a stylus or you could get an otg cable and hook a real keyboard up to the tablet.

I use mine mainly for web browsing and reading. It has served its purpose very well.

Okay, this might be stupid question but this is what is stopping me from getting the 3G version. If I tether my Nexus 7 to my 4g smartphone, would it boost the nexus 7's speeds if I had the 3G version? Or would I only need the wifi version to tether it to my 4G smartphone?

The 3g model will not benefit in any way, shape, or form if you are going to tether it to a 4g device.

In fact. All you need is pdanet and foxfi to tether via bluetooth(between the nexus and your phone which saves battery over wifi) and you will get blazing speeds. Thats how I do it when I tether my razr maxx to my nexus 7.

I have an HTC Rezound.. will that work? (I read somewhere that it doesn't with FoxFi, but I can't recall where).
post #1380 of 2571
I will say with a strong passion that the Nexus has no comparable apps, or any that are close to those like Noteshelf or PenUltimate (for the iPad). The iPad was truly the best tablet to use with a capacitive stylus.
