Nexus 7'.. Do I need it?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
G'day guys,

Just wanting some input on if I should grab the Nexus 7', It'd be cool for in bed and movies and games like GTA III and Vice City. But it's main purpose is to view books for uni, obviously I need text books but my sister had a brillant idea of getting a tablet and getting ebooks (PDF's) for cheaper. I actually Google'd around and can get one of them for nothing straight off the bat!

I guess I just need someone to push my over the fence on this idea, I don't think I'll get in trouble for not having the hard copies of the books as opposed to the ebooks and the battery life is good enough for say 6+ hours at a time?

Another thing to add is are there any other tablets that would suit me better, and what sort of cables/adapters are useful/needed? Along with a case suggestion.

I'll be getting the 32GB one most likely as I'll probably end up needing the space and i've got the money, it's kind of a shame that there is no SD card slot, that really made me not like it to be honest and another thing to add is the Tegra 3 good for games? smile.gif

EDIT: Also, does anyone know where I can buy ebooks cheap? tongue.gif

Nexus 7 should be able to read pdfs fine. I imagine there might be some pinching and zooming going on to be able to read textbooks on it though. What's your budget? The 10 inch tabs would probably be quite a bit better for pdf's tbh.
post #3 of 16
I bought the 16GB version a few months ago. But I can't really find anything to do on it, so its just gathering dust now.

I used it to play a few games (temple run, jetpack joyride), and the graphics was pretty smooth. My Sensation XE seemed slow and laggy after playing on the Nexus 7. I didnt run anything that requires a lot of juice, so I can't really judge the Tegra 3.

Reading PDFs on it is a blast. I downloaded a copy of Reader's Digest, and it was a pleasant experience especially with the picture quality the screen provided. I'd like to add here that the 7" screen felt perfect for reading PDFs. 10" would've been way too big for me. Also, when lying down, my hands started to get tired after a while since the tablet isnt as light as the magazine wouldve been.

About battery life : I've had the opportunity of using two android devices and while they are really useful in many situations, the battery really is a downer. Even with the really high capacity battery that the Nexus 7 has, I had to keep the brightness lowered at all times. Although the battery runs out quicker while gaming, reading PDFs also require a hefty amount of juice. I went on reading on it for 3 hours straight and it required 50% of the battery, if not more and that too with the lowered brightness. So I don't think it'll last for 6 hours. But I think you should be good for at least 5 hours.

The Android OS itself felt way better on the Nexus 7 than it did on my Sensation. Getting around is easier, and the touch screen is really good and responsive.

About storage capacity : Whichever tablet you go for, get the highest amount of storage you can get if there is no card slot on it. Trust me, you're going to want and need it. Also you should know that the 16GB version only has 13.xx GB of space available to the user while the 8GB one has only 5.xx GB. So don't expect the full 32GB on the 32GB version either.

The Nexus 7 is my first and only tablet, so I do not know if any other tablet would suit you better. But I should note that when I bought it, there were almost no tabs within the Nexus 7's price range. But brands like Acer and ASUS probably have tablets as cheap as the nexus, so you may want to check them out before you actually buy it.

Hope this helped! Good Luck! thumb.gif

The Nexus 7 for my wife for the exact same reasons is at the top of my list too. Just waiting for her money from college grants before actually making the purchase.

For storage issue, I'm just going to get her an OTG cable so she can hook up a flash drive or SD drive if needed. So we're going for the 16gb version. I think having only 5 gb of space is just too tiny for college uses.

As for finding ebooks, you're on the right track. Search by both the isbn numbers or the actual title. I've always seem to have the best luck with Cengage or Amazon for lowest prices.

For the past few semesters we've been sticking with getting eBooks instead of textbooks but wife is getting tired of sitting at desk to read them.

I use mine to read scanned notes and textbooks. It is great for one handed reading. I will say that it is hard to navigate large text books with this thing. For instance, if a homework problem is one page 500 and the chapter material for that problem is a couple hundred pages elsewhere you'll be scanning pages for awhile. Also, a friend of mine got the bigger Nexus 10 to replace his 7" samsung tablet for PDF book duty. The Nexus 10 was just too big, so he only uses the 7" now. I tried the 10" out and didn't like it, too large for comfortable use. The 7", to me, is just perfect for handheld pdf reading.

I have the 16gb model and ran out of space fairly quickly; however, Dropbox offsets this. The google play store has a Dropbox application that integrates very well with the device.

As the above have stated, the battery life is one of the only downsides. You will have to charge this thing up each night. I don't think it's that big of a deal, just hook it up to a laptop usb port or AC plug before you go to sleep.

Yes, that is what I figured. 7' is perfect as I find friends iPads (Regular ones) slightly too big. The Nexus 7 is probably a tad small for what I want but pinching and dragging isn't too bad I don't think. I plan on charging it every night and i'm sure it'll have enough battery for lectures, I will be turning the screen brightness down of course for some of the time and turning Wi-Fi off for lectures, I may even root the tablet and downclock it to save battery for lectures then run it at stock for when I'm not in lectures.

This is good to know some information from someone with the same idea, I actually found a few of the books for free on the Internet and already grabbed them tongue.gif
I understand that the 8GB model is way too small.. I will personally be getting the 32GB variant myself as it is only ~$40 more here locally and it is just easier and more futureproof. I swear someone said that it has a SD card slot though.. rolleyes.gif

Also you need the kindle app for rented books yes? tongue.gif

Not here, it is the only non dual core/low end tablet here really. Everything else is instantly $350+ and they're not as good (I don't like ACER either), upon further investigation I have found out that it's an ASUS made/designed product and I had a good time with my ASUS laptop and monitor. Again the touchscreen being responsive is good, but it wouldn't matter that much as it's only for reading PDF's as it's main priority, of course I am going to have music and such on it though...

Doesn't bother me all that much, it should be pretty good. A 10' tablet feels too big to me and costs a lot too much. ($120 more for the 16GB one) over the 32GB Nexus 7'.

As to the person that said that "text books with lots of pages", one of mine that I have is literally 1000 pages of text. Surely though I can just "go to page" or "Search for page" etc?

Cheers, this has really pushed me over the edge about buying it. Just going to double check all the books that I need are available, I might even ring the uni and ask if a tablet would be a good idea for in lectures and stuff tongue.gif

I don't like Acer either, its just that I read somewhere earlier that they're supposed to release a $100 tablet.

I don't know how GSMArena came to that conclusion, but from personal experience I'd say it should last about 5-6 hours for continuous use. To further reinforce this point, I'd like to share my experience of using the Sensation XE. (Different devices, but still). GSMArena says it should last 7h 20m but it lasts me ~2 hours with simultaneous gaming and listening to music. So I'd take what GSMArena says about battery life with a pinch of salt.

Yeah, I assumed that it'd be in the ballpark..
I'd prefer the Nexus though because it's used widely and I really don't like Acer and their uptimes....... They had Acer desktops/laptops at my college. They were always breaking etc.

I only plan on it being on and scrolling around in one PDF and no Wi-Fi, no music or games so battery life should be moderate. smile.gif

I understand that the 8GB model is way too small.. I will personally be getting the 32GB variant myself as it is only ~$40 more here locally and it is just easier and more futureproof. I swear someone said that it has a SD card slot though.. rolleyes.gif

Also you need the kindle app for rented books yes? tongue.gif

Only if you rented it from Amazon. At Cengage, they create a library in your account and you can read them via any browser. And I think you can save to your desktop if needed offline.

Ah yes, well I might have a look at Cengage. I will need them to be available offline on the tablet.. I take it that is possible?

EDIT: Okay well Cengage don't have any of the books I need :/
I Google'd for "Cengage eBooks" and I was looking "Cengage Brain"
