Device & Specs

Device & Specs

With a far better processor, far better interface, and an astoundingly superior screen, and just about nothing inferior to the Kindle Fire, the Google Nexus 7 is the far better tablet for the same price.

Screen

The Google Nexus 7 's screen is hands-down the best screen on an Android tablet so far, so we find it hard to make a fair comparison here.

Battery

The Google Nexus 7 has hands-down the best battery we've ever seen.

eReader

Here is an area in which the Google Nexus 7 falls a little bit short, as all Kindle devices can borrow from the Amazon Lending Library, as well as local libraries. In terms of content libraries, the Google Nexus 7 can't compete just yet.

Internet

With an impressive array of wireless capabilities and internet features, the Google Nexus 7 leaves the Kindle Fire in the dust.
