Google Nexus 7 4G Tablet
The Nexus 7 4G is an LTE equipped version of Google and Asus’s latest Nexus slate. Aside from 4G connectivity it has solid specs and an attractive price tag.
The Nexus 7 4G is out now and available for £299, though of course if you want to make use of 4G connectivity on it you’ll have to pay extra for some data.
Google Nexus 7 4G
Google has done well with its Nexus range and the Nexus 7 in particular has proven a very popular 7 inch tablet. That can largely be explained by the low price, but there’s more to it than that.
Its 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM ensure it’s got a lot of power and as it’s running stock Android it doesn’t suffer from the bloat of some competitors, so performance is slick. It also gets day one Android updates and its 7 inch screen is pleasingly high resolution, with a pixel density of 323 pixels per inch.
The Nexus 7 has a long battery life too, which is always important for a device that you’re mostly likely to use when you’re away from home and because it’s only 7 inches it’s small and light enough to be exceedingly portable.
This 4G version of the slate is a brilliant travel companion too, as not only can you enjoy local media on it but with mobile internet you can browse the web, play online games and stream and download music and videos.
Google Nexus 7 4G Release Date & Price
The Nexus 7 4G is out now and available for £299 from Google Play, EE and other retailers. It’s not quite as affordable as the Wi-Fi only version but it’s still a very cheap way to get a 4G enabled tablet and you don’t sacrifice quality by saving money.
Its closest competition is probably the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, which is similarly priced, though you can get a slightly cheaper version with less storage. However the Kindle Fire HDX locks you into Amazon’s ecosystem, while the Nexus 7 is as open as you’d expect an Android device to be.
