Nexus 7 is the latest Google tablet produced under the joint partnership with Asus. It has been considered as the best Google tablet so far, and is offering a tough competition to the existing giants Apple and Samsung, ruling this segment. The beautiful tablet is much more cost friendly as compared to iPad, and runs on the latest Android Jelly Bean. The 7 inch full HD tablet offers a pixel density of 323 ppi, overshadowing any other tablet in the market. You can take above average photos with the 5MP shooter at the back, and the core android interface without any amendments or modifications is the most suitable for android fans. Most of the other smartphone manufacturers in the market often add their own bells and whistles to this operating system, which are loved by a few users, while some others think they just make the OS heavy, and complicated to use. Samsung has their own Touch Wiz, while HTC ships their device with HTC sense UI.
