I think around 5.5gb and you can do factory reset on the device which makes it like new out of box.

Do you have a link for the one you tried? Just to keep tabs on the good and the bad.

How many other people have had the raised left side of the screen issue?

I'd get on the phone and ask for another cross shipped. I'm like you: If I buy something I want it pretty much perfect so, if I ever have to RMA for failure, there will be no issues as far as any physical damage I caused. See if you can get 1 cross shipped and if so, just use that one til it arrives. ASUS really needs to tighten down on their QC with these things already.

Good luck, bro.

Haven't got around to those yet but, this one seems to be okay. The reviews call it basic but, it's got over 27 thousand 5 star reviews out of 32 thousand users. The 2 Nexus 7 reviews are 5 star and claim it's great. I've got it bookmarked for when I'm done sorting my other things first.

Nexus 7 Factory Reset.

I never looked at my starting available space but, with the 16 GB model I have a 720p 1 GB movie (Drive) and ~ seven 720p music videos local, on top of my games and apps and I still have ~ 8 GB left.
Our Stuffz.... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Apps:
  • KIII TV 3 News
  • News Republic
  • Caller Times News Paper
  • BBC News
  • Equalizer
  • Skifta
  • MX Player Pro
  • MX Player Codec (ARMv7)
  • Dice Player
  • iHeartRadio
  • Adobe Air
  • Astro File Manager
  • NBC Olympics (useless)
  • Food Network Mobile
  • Dolphin HD browser
+ the 15 or so basic Google apps that come preloaded.

Games:
  • Dead Trigger
  • Dark Meadow: The Pact
  • Blood and Glory (Not Rated version)
  • Rip Tide GP
  • Jewel Stars
  • Jewels Deluxe
  • Zen Pinball (with 3 added tables)

1) You can store 20,000 of your own uploaded songs on Google Play and 2) with Skifta (free) you can stream movies/music/photos from your pc to the Nexus 7 via LAN and 3) if you root and use a USB-OTG cable with a flash drive you can take tons more stuff along with you. You can fill one of these little guys with a ton of music (320 kps .mp3s or FLAC files) or a few movies Handbraked to the 1280 preset for a file about 1-1.5 GB for access when you don't have a connection to the net...just pop it onto the cable and enjoy.

The QC issues are causing a lot of people head aches but, it's hard to find a better deal at this price.

Before I head out: Try this game if you haven't already, it's kinda cool: Blood & glory (Not Rated version)

It's really a shame they cut out the micro sd port. I think I could get by with the 16 GB as long as I don't put any music on it. I understand it is meant to be a media streaming device primarily, but I can't understand why it has become an obsolete feature in some tablets and phones.

speaker boost https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.omegacentauri.SpeakerBoost&hl=en
music volume EQ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hr.podlanica&hl=en
volume control + https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cb.volumePlus&hl=en
Volume+ free https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.FREE.android.lvh&hl=en
Again, speaker boost seemed the most effective out of the free apps(going so far as to warn device damage if set too high), but volume+ (paid) would appear to drive similar performance w/ better EQ options.
Note:(simply cranking the volume slider to 100% will not max out MEDIA/APP volume, the N7 has a default 70% media/app volume adjustable in the settings directory)

Agreed, I am hoping that Asus releases a similar device with their own branding with a Micro SD port (and hopefully HDMI out).

Oh for anyone wanting to look at the remote desktop apps. Highly recommend splashtop 2. It's full HD 1280x800 like your N7 screen. When you login to your desktop the app automatically changes to screen to view what you view. Only downside is I haven't been able to get 3D games to work yet...
But check her out! I can login anywhere and check out my PC status and folding status..makin sure everything is still crankin.

and anyone else notice the wifi is a little weak?

I'm looking for games for my n7 and I'm not afraid to say I have high standards, standards that won't be met by a five star rating system or "OMG guhyz this game is so cuhl! smile.gif". Is there a site I can go to with an empirical rating system, something adequately comprehensive? I'm in the market for solid lengthy expriences, not mini games and even well ported but mindless shooters.

If anyone has any RTS or RPG recommendations, I would give em a look aswell.

Its over £5 that splashtop2 app, seems pricey that. Theres few others that are free, is this one worth paying for?
