Amazon.com : Google Nexus 9 Tablet (8.9-Inch, 32 GB, White) : Computers & Accessories

I've been a long time Nexus brand user, owning the Nexus 4/5/7. I sold my iPad 3 but still retain my iPod Touch 4th Generation as dedicated mp3 player. Furthermore, I employ a Dell Venue 8 Pro running Windows 8.1 as a productivity tablet. Please see my profile for my Nexus 5 and 7 reviews. This review is meant for both the technical savvy and the casual user so bear with me as at times I'll veer headfirst into alphabet number soup talk and at times keep it real simple. I also purchased my Nexus 9 directly from Google Play.

If you're the super lazy kind of person, skip to section (11): TLDR, otherwise let's begin:

(1) Hardware:

Personally, in my opinion, high to medium end devices from reputable brands have reached the point where most people won't be able to tell the difference or the difference won't be something they regularly use. That said I'm still going to cover it. If you're not interested in the nerd talk about hardware, then all you need to know is that the tablet is capable hardware wise for demanding users and absurdly overkill for average users. Skip this section of my review and head on down to section (2): Performance.

Behold, the dual core Denver Tegra K-1, the first official 64bit Android ARM chip on a 64bit ARM operating system running the new v8 instruction set. Now, you're thinking, what's so special about 64 bit and what's so good about the v8 instruction set? Well, that's in section (5). Anyways, the K-1 is a dual core clocking in at 2.5 GHz. It's also paired with a 192-core GPU. Honestly, this to most people is just alphabet soup. I have little but disdain for mobile benchmarks given their inherent problems relating to real world tests, but they do show the K-1 performing exceptionally well.

The tablet comes with 2GB of DDR3 RAM made by Micron Technology, which is kind of disappointing given that Android phones like the Note 4 are clocking in at 3 GB of RAM. Given how the Nexus 9 is a true 64 bit tablet, this is a bit troublesome, see section (5).

As usual, comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS, the last three features provided by a Broadcom chip. The 3.5mm standard audio jack is located on the top. Wi-Fi is upgraded to the industry standard of 802.11ac 2x2 which is also known as MiMO, also referred to as "dual band" which allows for much faster in theory Wi-Fi connections. USB is legacy 2.0 rather than 3.0. There's also an electric compass made by Ashai Kasei. Sound is provided by two front face speakers with HTC's BoomSound. See section (2) for more on the speakers. The tablet also stocks dual microphones. Microphone is decent as I was able to operate the voice commands in a quiet room from 7 feet away with a normal voice level. Sorry kids, there isn't any finger print sensor on this tablet.

The display is sized at IPS 8.9" at a 2048x1536 resolution, for a PPI of 281. Sadly, this isn't my Nexus 5's PPI. Google and HTC went for the 4:3 aspect ratio rather than the usual 16:10/16:9 which are both better for movie watching. There are black bars when I loaded up movies. Take that as you will. The screen is the standard Gorilla Glass 3, meaning it's tough but clear. Sorry kids, no sapphire. The tablet runs really bright at the highest level, but I run my around 35-40% and it's still acceptably bright. Viewing angles are solid and you won't have a problem viewing content from odd angles.

At the moment the notification LED on the screen does not function like the Nexus 5 one does, meaning you cannot assign colors to different applications and people. The developers of the app "Lightflow" are allegedly working on making their app compatible.

The device is just under a pound at 0.936 pounds, so pretty light. The dimensions of the device are 6.05 inches by 8.9 inches by 0.312 inches. I can see these tablets are on super model diets. That can't be enjoyable. Someone get my tablet a double bacon cheeseburger stat! Anyways, you won't get tired holding this thing and if you do, hit the gym.

Your color options are a bit expanded over the Nexus 7, with black, white and sand. Google names these "Indigo Black," "Lunar White" and "Sand." Sand is only available in 32GB and LTE is only available in Black 32GB currently. I ordered the "Indigo Black" version. Typically, Nexus devices have different surfaces on their backs depending on the color with the white tending to be more slippery. As for how much space you'll have left after Android 5.0, well that's in (4).

Unfortunately, Google has kept the no-Microsd slot feature again on another Nexus device. Part of this is due to security as it limits what you can plug into your device, partially not wanting to pay Microsoft the licensing fees for the patents and part of this is just a blatant money grab. The Nexus 9 uses Samsung built MLC NAND storage in either 16GB or 32GB models. Google is charging $80 extra for the 32GB model. Based on wholesale NAND pricing easily found on the internet for contract pricing, that costs Google/HTC around $2.32. That results in markup of 3,448% over wholesale prices and that's a low estimate as I can't find the contract pricing for the 16GB chip. I didn't think it was possible, but someone finally is out charging Apple on storage upgrades. Take that as you will.

Now you're thinking, 3,448% markup? That's insane! And you know what? You're absolutely right. Luckily, the Nexus 9 does support USB OTG. More on that later in section (7).

Whew, that was a bit much wasn't it? Have a section summary!

Pros:Blazing fast dual core 64 bit processor, solid Screen at PPI 281, thin and light, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, dual band Wi-Fi, allows OTG and good speakers and mics.

Cons:No Sapphire, No Microsd, $80 to bump from 16 GB to 32 GB, USB 2.0, only three color choices, and 4:3 aspect ratio.

Other:Only 2 GB of RAM, LTE version and Sand color version to be released at a future date.

(2) Performance/Sound/Connectivity:

The Tegra K-1 has already been extensively bench marked and performance graphically wise is about on par with a PS3 or an Xbox 360. The Xbox and PS3 PC graphical equivalent is around an NVidia 7800/7900GTX. That's very old hardware to PC gamers, but to tablet gamers, that's a big gain. Lots of tech sites will claim that tablets (barring the Microsoft Surface line) are delivering PC performance, but they never actually define what that means. My Dell Venue 8 Pro can run Team Fortress 2. I would definitely not call that PC like performance compared to my Windows desktop or even a basic Chromebook.

Sound is solid for a tablet, which doesn't say much as a run of the mill Bluetooth speaker will provide better sound. It's better than my old iPad 3, but tablet sound still has a long way to go before it can replace a regular speaker.

The Nexus 9 per other user tests and reported on XDA is not slimport capable, meaning you cannot connect the tablet to a HDMI equipped TV via a slimport adapter as video out from the USB port is not allowed. I don't have one of these adapters, mostly because they're fairly expensive.

I've never seen the real need for cellular on my tablets, thus I continued my buying of Wi-Fi only. However, the tablet does offer an LTE version to be sold in the future. The LTE version currently works on GMS, CDMA, HSPA and LTE, meaning it should in theory work on all major carriers in the US, but we'll have to wait for actual bands to be provided. Verizon may make a big stink again about letting another Nexus tablet on their network. You probably just have to buy the Nexus 9 from Verizon if and when they let it on their network if you want a Verizon LTE Nexus 9.

The Nexus 9 will not connect to a Micro USB to Ethernet adapter, or at least the Smays adapter I have for a wired connection. Bluetooth is fine and quickly connects to a variety of devices. Wi-Fi quickly connected to both my regular router and my extender.

(3) Camera:

Cameras include a front facing camera at 1.6 MP at f/2.4 and a back camera at 8.1 MP at f/2.4 both at 4:3 aspect ratio. There's a LED flash as well on the back. Nothing has changed about being silly taking pictures with a tablet camera since my Nexus 7 review. Anyways, iFixit tore down a Nexus 9 and the camera is the same one as the HTC Desire 610, thus a middle range quality camera. Front camera records at 720P where the back camera records at 1080P. Manual exposure is an option in settings. No HDR, but all of the regular functions from panorama, to lens blur and photo sphere are here.

Camera quality is okay for both, with better results in well-lit areas. Image stabilization is about on par with the Nexus 5 and flash is fairly weak. Focus speed unfortunately seems actually a tad slower than the Nexus 5 which already had slow focus speed.

The camera itself is not flush with the back of the device and protrudes a little.

(4) Android 5.0 Lollipop:

Welcome to Google's latest and greatest (yes, I copied that from my Nexus 5 review). Android 5.0, also known as Lollipop brings extra features to the ball game. For one, ART replaced Dalvik, notifications are refreshed to be produced on cards and grouped by types of applications that generate them, and the recent app button shows now a stack of cards rather than applications vertically imposed. ART, or Android Run Time complies processes rather than running then just in time, which should increase performance. ART was previously offered alternative on devices like the Nexus 4 and 5, but it wasn't the default.

Build LRX21R was released a few days ago and is now makings its way to Nexus 9s in mass over the air. Build LRX21R which is a Nexus 9 specific patch to Android 5.0 seems to have fixed a number of software issues and overall the tablet seems faster on opening applications and loading content than it did on the build LRX21L that shipped with the Nexus 9.

Animations have been reworked and notifications are now able to be displayed on your lock screen (similar to how widgets allowed this on Android 4.4). Google seems to have ripped off Microsoft Vista's Aero wheel animation for applications.

Battery life gets a boost from optimizations to restrict the operation of applications. A series of security related improvements are made, including default encryption. If you have an Android Wear device, you can now automatically unlock when a device running 5.0 is close enough, a form of trusted area. I can now see frat boys grabbing an Android smart watch to unlock a passed out friend's phone/tablet.

Like all good Nexus devices, the Nexus 9 has none of the carrier or manufacture obstacles to getting operating system updates. Nor does it have any of the "skins" that companies such as HTC, LG, Samsung and others put over stock Android, meaning the Nexus 9 ships with absolutely pure Android. Furthermore, like all good Android devices, you're free to customize to your heart's content. Don't want any apps on your home screen? That's just fine. Want so many you can't see your background? Go for it. Hate the whole theme that stock 5.0 comes with? Install another launcher like Themer. You decide what your device looks like. That's the power of the Home Depot...I mean Android.

Applications are still kind of lacking for Android in terms of tablet and some apps are simply not going to work on the newest version of Android until developers patch them. Also, many are geared for 16:10 aspect creating some issues with the tablet's 4:3 aspect ratio.

The back, home and recent on screen buttons have been simplified into something resembling the buttons from a play station controller. Home is now a circle, recent apps is a single square and back is a closed arrow.

Android Lollipop 5.0 takes up a little under 6.5 GB of space. My Nexus 9 32 GB fresh out of the box and after a mandatory 264 MB patch had 25.6 GB free. Not as bad as Windows, but still quite hefty.

Widget selection is identical to the Nexus 5 launcher where widgets are selected by holding on the home screen rather than the app drawer.

I restarted both my Nexus 5 and my Nexus 9 and opened Chrome at the same time both on the same Wi-Fi network. The Nexus 9 loaded Chrome faster. I tried the same for YouTube and the Nexus 5 loaded faster. Google Drive they loaded about the same. Google Earth loaded a second or two faster on the Nexus 9. The Nexus 5 loaded the Amazon app initially faster but the Nexus 9 hands down beat it in loading all of the content in the app.

For those of you who refuse to hunt and peck in your typing, Swype works.

The native built in video player won't play MVK, MP4, MV4 or AVI. But it is easy to transfer any file format to the device, unlike iOS.

Finally, if you get bored, go to settings -> About Tablet -> Android Version - Tap a few times till the lollipops come up and then hold. Prepare for Flappy Android! Google built in an Easter Egg clone of Flappy Bird, which is really just a modern version of the classic game Helicopter. See my Photobucket link for more details.

(5) 64 Bit & ARMv8:

As the Nexus 9 is the first Android tablet that's running both a 64bit processor and a 64bit operating system, I felt a need to explain what 64 bit processing actually is and does. Furthermore, the K-1 is one of the first Android oriented processors that is running ARMv8. Explaining 64 bit in detail could take an essay, so here's the simplistic short explanation: Data is processed in bits and 64 bit vs the existing 32 bit allows larger amounts of data to be processed faster in larger registers, thus in theory allowing a device running both a 64 bit processor and a 64 bit operating system to perform significantly faster than a 32 bit processor/OS. 64 bit does not operate 100% faster than 32 bit.

Due to the increased ability to processor more data faster, a 64 bit system like the Nexus 9, iPhone 6, most Windows desktop and laptops and many Chromebooks will consume more RAM. This is why the 64 bit push has generally been associated with having more RAM as 64 bit computing allows a device to access more than 4GB of memory locations. Electronics in history have run into serious RAM related crash issues when a 64 bit device is run on 2GB or less RAM. Many Windows Blue Screens of Death were related to RAM overruns.

ARMv8 is ARM's (who designs the basic foundation for ARM processors that power mobile devices from Apple to Samsung) latest instruction set release. Ars Technica reported that the iPhone 5s's processor gains were 90% from ARMv8 and 10% from various other aspects like 64 bit and processor improvements showing just how important ARM's work is. The K-1's massive performance over 32 bit processors seems to suggest this is true, especially since it is just a dual core processor where many of the 32 bit were and still are quad core processors. Every manufacturer has stated they're moving towards chips running on ARMv8, but this is the first mainstream one to hit the Android market.

(6) Battery & Charging:

Battery is rated at 3.8 volt, 6700 mAh, and 25.46 watt hours with an alleged 9.5 hours of browsing. Gaming will of course reduce battery life and given the graphics core on the K-1, gamers are going to run the battery down. I'm getting about 7-8 hours on mundane usage and charging speed is about average with other tablets.

As much as this tablet represents the future, it also represents the past. No wireless charging available. Personally, I've never been a fan of wireless charging simply because it generates excess heat inside the battery which tends to reduce battery longevity. Wireless charging is without question more convenient, but if you plan on keeping your devices for a while or handing them down to friends and family, extending the battery life of a device should be important and wireless charging doesn't do that. The Nexus 9 is still going to be plugged in and charged via the standard, ubiquitous micro USB.

(7) USB OTG:

USB OTG, otherwise known as On-The-Go is a series of protocols that allows the access of the USB port for things other than charging. The Nexus 9 supports USB OTG meaning that instead of paying $80 for an extra 16 GB of storage at a 3,448% markup, you can instead buy low cost flash drives, SD cards and Microsd cards for 50 cents or less per gigabyte. Couple that with a low priced USB Reader like a Meenova and a low priced USB OTG cable that can be found for less than $2 right here on Amazon and you've got storage to spare. One fabulous aspect of using external media is that it's incredibly easy to share and transfer large amounts of files without using data. Sharing 50 GB of files is not a fast proposition with the cloud.

Unfortunately, the Nexus 9 does not natively recognize most USB OTG flash drives. It will recognize smart phones and automatically start a file transfer. For flash drives, you're going to need some form of app to bridge the gap. USB On-The-Go Disk Explorer has a free version, but I'm just going to use the Nexus Media Importer app I've had for a while.

Nexus Media Importer app works just fine as long as the file format is not exFat. However, it will not play MKV files natively, but VLC will play them from the Nexus Media Importer. There is zero lag on OTG streaming even on 8GB HD quality movies. Keyboards, mice, flash drives are all handled without problem. Also, I was able to copy files back and forth between the tablet and the flash drive.

(8) Build & Looks:

This tablet does look like an iPad. You could probably walk into an Apple store and people wouldn't be any wiser. A metal frame runs around the edges with soft plastic backing. This is a clear improvement upon the Nexus 7 line. The back is a smooth matte black. The buttons for power and volume up/down barely protrude from the case and requires some getting used to. Side bezels are 0.7 centimeters, and top and bottom bezels are slight less than 2.5 centimeters.

(9) Other:

Now, where should you buy this? Amazon offers free shipping and for most states, no sales taxes. However, Amazon's RMA process in the event of a defect can often go hairy as at some point in time, Amazon sends you over to the manufacturer, or HTC to fix your problems. This can result in a run around where HTC will tell you to contact Google, Google tell you to contact where you bought it from, aka Amazon in this case and Amazon telling you to contact HTC. This has happened to more than a few electronics buyers.

Google directly sells this, but charges shipping of $9.99 for three day delivery. There's also sales tax but it's wildly varied from less than 50 cents to $30+. Google however, will take back your Nexus device on RMA without more than a basic inquiry if you bought the device from them. You'll pay more than Amazon, but you'll have a much easier time in case of a defect.

Local stores like BestBuy also sell it with price match to Amazon. Depending on your state, you'll have different sale tax mileage. Note it is obviously easier to return a defective product to a local physical store.

HTC/Google is also selling an origami cover similar to the type that the Kindle Fire line has as well as a keyboard cover that turns it into a laptop.

iFixit gave the Nexus 9 a 3 out of 10 on repair-ability so probably bad idea to go about fixing it yourself.

(10) Quality Control:

Sadly, this Nexus release appears to be mirroring the original Nexus 7 rather than the Nexus 4 or 5 launches with significant quality control issues. While plenty of users are reporting that their devices have zero hardware problems, far too many are reporting significant light bleed, back cover flimsiness, broken NFC, bad Wi-Fi and other hardware issues for those to be outliers. Therefore, in terms of pure quality control issues, my suggestion is to simply wait a few months until the quality control issues are sorted out. When the device is properly made it's amazing, but when it's not, it's terrible.

I happened to get a device with minimal back flex and no noticeable light bleed. During my application quickness tests, I noticed my Nexus 5 actually has more light bleed and I've been using that since November of 2013 without noticing. Mine, like others does get a noticeably warm in the top by the camera during usage.

(11) TLDR:

$399 base unit, lightning fast, newest Android OS, looks like an iPad, Xbox360/PS3 graphics, no Microsd, no wireless charging, USB OTG allowed and no wireless charging.

Conclusion: Phenomenal tablet that's exceptionally flexible and productive but currently hampered by quality control issues. If you're set on buying a high quality Android tablet, wait a month or two before picking a Nexus 9 up.

For some reason I cannot post pictures, so here's my Photobucket album of the Nexus 9: http://tinyurl.com/mb58bcl

Google Nexus 7 tablet inceleme

Android’in yeni sürümü Jelly Bean ile satılacak ilk tablet olan Nexus 7’yi inceliyoruz. Bakalım Google-Asus ortaklığında nasıl bir ürün ortaya çıkmış.

 

Özellikler

Nexus 7, işletim sistemi olarak Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sürümü ile donatılmış. 7″ IPS LCD ekranı bulunan tabletin çözünürlüğü 1280×800. Bu da demek oluyor ki 214 ppi piksel yoğunluğuna sahip. En büyük rakipleri Kindle Fire 169, iPad’in 264 ppi piksel yoğunluğuna sahip olduğunu hatırlatalım. Nvidia Tegra 3 dört çekirdekli (1.3 GHz) işlemciden güç alan tablet 1 GB RAM’e sahip. Dahili hafıza olarak önümüze iki seçenek sunuluyor: 8GB ve 16GB. Maalesef hafızayı genişletmek için  microSD ya da herhangi bir kart girişi bulunmuyor. Kablosuz bağlantı olarak WiFi ve Bluetooth yer alıyor. Batarya 4325 mAh kapasitesinde ve yaklaşık olarak 9 saat kullanım imkanı sağlıyor.

Donanım

Nexus 7’nin ön tarafında herhangi bir logo ya da yazı bulunmuyor. Tableti ters ya da düz tuttuğumuzu anlamanın tek yolu ön kameraya bakmak.

Ön kamera 1.3 MP çözünürlüğünde, ancak Google bu kamera ile fotoğraf çekmemizi istemiyor olacak ki Nexus 7’de herhangi bir kamera uygulaması yer almıyor. Ön kamerayı Skype, GTalk gibi görüntülü konuşma uygulamalarında rahatlıkla kullanabiliyor. Üst tarafta ayrıca bir ışık sensörünün bulunduğunu da belirtelim.

Tabletin arka tarafını incelediğimizde ise şık bir Nexus yazısı gözümüze çarpıyor. Arka tarafta kamera bulunmaması üzücü olsa da maliyeti düşürmek için bu yola gidilmesi normal diye düşünüyorum.

Arka taraf yumuşak bir plastikten yapılmış. Nexus yazısının çukurluğu ve diğer ufak çukurluklar oldukça hoş bir görüntü veriyor ve elde rahat tutulmasını sağlıyor.

Ah, evet bu tablet Asus tarafından üretildi! Aşağıda küçük de olsa bir Asus logosu yer alıyor. Bu yazının altında ise oldukça zayıf bir hoparlör yer alıyor. Daha aşağıda ise microUSB girişi ve 3.5 mm kulaklık girişi bulunuyor.

Nexus 7, 10.5mm kalınlığa sahip. Diğer tabletlere oranla biraz daha kalın olduğunu söyleyebiliriz. iPad’in 9.4mm, Galaxy Tab 7.7’nin 7.9mm ve Transformer Prime’ın 8.5mm kalınlığa sahip olduğunu hatırlatalım.

Google Play artık tablet kullanıcılarına e-dergiler de sunuyor. Türkçe olarak şu an pek içerik bulunmasa da ilerde artacağını tahmin ediyorum.

Google Play’in kullanıcılara sunduğu bir başka yenilik ise televizyon programları. Breaking Bad’in bir bölümünü HD olarak izlemek istediğimizde Nexus 7’nin çözünürlüğünden dolayı aşağı ve üstte az da olsa siyah boşlukların olduğunu görüyoruz.

Pixel yoğunluğunun 214 olması ile Nexus 7 oldukça keskin ve canlı görüntüler sunuyor. Pikselleri yakınlaştığınızda görebilirsiniz ancak normal kullanımda fark edilmiyor. Tabii ki ekran yeni iPad’in yanından bile geçemez ancak Kindle Fire’a kıyasla oldukça iyi durumda olduğunu söyleyebiliriz.

İşte burada Play ikonunun makro çekimini görüyoruz. Nexus 7 RGB piksel dizilimine sahip ki bu dizilimin pentile dizilimden daha iyi olduğunu söyleyebiliriz.

Kontrast ve renklerin doygunluğu açısından Galaxy Tab 7.7 ile kıyasladığımızda Nexus 7’nin geride kaldığını görüyoruz. Burada doğal olarak SUPER AMOLED’in üstünlüğü ortaya çıkıyor.

Jelly Bean

Jelly Bean hakkında söylenecek çok şey var ancak biz özet geçmeyi tercih ediyoruz.

Project Butter: Bu, Google’ın Android işletim sistemindeki takılmalara açtığı savaşın kod adı. Google, başta arayüz olmak üzere uygulamalardaki ve tarayıcıdaki takılmaları en aza indirmekte kararlı. Günümüzdeki çoğu Android tabletler gerek donanım yetersizliği, gerek işletim sisteminin kendisinden kaynaklanan sorunlar nedeniyle yavaş çalışıyor. Arayüzde sağa sola kaydırma yaparken bile ufak da olsa gecikmeler gerçekleşiyor.

Jelly Bean’de arayüz geçişleri, Play Store, uygulama yöneticisi gibi birçok şey  kesinlikle daha hızlı. Ancak Jelly Bean de mükemmel değil. Web tarayıcısında yine çeşitli takılmalar hissedilebiliyor. Google, Jelly Bean sürümü ile bu takılmaları sonlandırmasa da Ice Cream Sandwich sürümüne göre büyük gelişme kaydetmiş.

Bildirimler: Artık bu kısımda sadece şöyle oldu, böyle oldu diye yazılar görmeyeceksiniz. Örneğin biri Skype’dan sizi aradı ve siz bunu sonradan gördünüz. Tabletinize baktığınızda bildirimler kısmındayine  “Şu kişi sizi aradı.” yazacak ancak yanında geri ara, mesaj at gibi seçenekler de yer alacak. Farklı uygulamalarda farklı seçenekler yer alacak ve tablet kullanımını kesinlikle daha pratik bir hale getirecektir. Tablet diyoruz ancak Jelly Bean’in telefonlara da önümüzdeki günlerde (aylarda) geleceğini belirtelim.

Google Play: Bildiğimiz gibi bütün Android işletim sistemli cihazlarda bulunan uygulama mağazası. Ancak güncellenmiş sürümde dergiler ve TV şovları gibi çeşitli yenilikler içeriyor. Ayrıca uygulamanın arayüzü de değiştirilmiş ve daha güzel bir hale gelmiş.

 

Jelly Bean’de animasyonun kaybolması ile birlikte takılmalar da kaybolmuş.Google Play artık dergile ve TV şovları da içeriyor.Bildirimler artık içerik olarak daha zengin. Tabii geliştiricilerin bundan ne kadar faydalandığına bağlı.

Performans

Jelly Bean ile gelen Nexus 7, diğer tabletlere kıyasla oldukça hızlı. Menülerde dolaşırken herhangi bir takılma, gecikme olmuyor. Uygulama yöneticisinde, Google Play’den içerik indirirken ya da oyun oynarken genel olarak sıkıntı yaşanmıyor. Oyunlardan bahsetmişken, Nexus 7’de Tegra 3 işlemcisinin yer aldığını ve bu nedenle Tegra 3’e özel oyunlara ve grafiklere sahip olacağını hatırlatalım.

Nexus 7, tarayıcı performansında ise sınıfta kalıyor. Sayfaların yüklenme süresi ortalamanın altında ancak birden çok pencere açtığımızda takılmalar yaşandığını gözlemliyoruz. Nexus 7’nin stok tarayıcısının Chrome olduğunu da belirtelim. Dolphin HD, Opera Mobile gibi tarayıcılarda ise daha iyi bir performans elde ediyoruz.

İşte karşınızda bazı performans testlerinin sonuçları. Parantez içinde yer alan sonuç ise HTC One X’e ait.

Quadrant: 3549 (4524)

Smartbench 2012: Üretkenlik 3637 (4676), Oyunlar 2627 (2737)

LinPack Pro: 47.17 MFLOP, 1.78 saniye (51.65 MFLOP, 1.62 saniye)

Batarya Ömrü

Nexus 7, yaklaşık 9 saat kullanım imkanı sunsa da şarj edilmesi de 7-8 saati buluyor. Bataryanın çok büyük olmamasına rağmen bu oldukça uzun bir süre.

Artılar

  • Mükemmel fiyatlandırma
  • Harika performans
  • Hafif ve elde şık duruyor.
  • Google Play artık daha fazla içeriğe sahip.

Eksiler

  • Kontrast ve renk doygunluğu olarak ortalamanın altında.
  • Işık sensörü ekranı oldukça sönük tutuyor.
  • Chrome yani stok tarayıcıdaki performans düşük
  • Şart etme süresi çok uzun
  • MicroSD girişi yok

Fiyat ve Çıkış Tarihi

Nexus 7, temmuzun ortalarında satışa çıkacak. Yurtdışında Google Play’den satın alınabilecek. 8GB modelin fiyatı $199 ve 16GB modelin fiyatı da $249. Ne yazık ki ülkemizdeki fiyatlar bu fiyatların 2 katına yakın olacaktır diye tahmin ediyorum.

Sonuç

Google, iPad’i hedef almaktansa Kindle Fire’ı hedef almış gözüküyor. Bana göre de oldukça iyi bir iş çıkarmış. 3G, microSD kart girişi olmamasına rağmen günlük kullanımda işimizi görecek bir tablet olduğunu düşünüyorum. Nexus 7 performans açısından da diğer Android tabletlere kıyasla oldukça iyi durumda. Düşük fiyat ve yüksek performans politikası ile Nexus 7 tabletin iyi satış rakamlarına ulaşacağını düşünüyorum.

Amazon.com: Nexus 7 from Google (7-Inch, 16 GB, Black) by ASUS (2013) Tablet: Computers & Accessories

**REVIEW UPDATED ON 7/30/13 - Updated speakers, "other features", battery life, gripes**

For anyone on the fence, and especially for those frustrated by the performance slowdown issues with the original Nexus 7 tablet, don't let that scare you off from buying the second generation model.

Google made all of the right improvements to the product, and the result is a significantly improved product for a marginally higher cost. Only time will tell if this unit suffers the same performance fate as the original model (for those not familiar, over time, the first generation tablets tended to quickly slow down and struggle to perform even basic tasks like browsing the internet). However, Android 4.3 feels ultra-smooth so far, and I am hoping that Google and Asus learned from their original mistakes.

SCREEN: The new screen is absolutely stunning. Some people argue that the resolution of 323 pixels per inch is unnecessary, but you can really see the difference when you use it in person. Text is significantly sharper and a little easier on the eye to read. Using the tablet to watch videos and see pictures produces a stunning result.

PROCESSOR: This is the #1 reason I'd recommend this new, upgraded Nexus 7 over the older version. The speed upgrade is unquestionably immense, and to those who have used the older and newest model Nexus 7, you will notice and appreciate this immediately. Apps load instantly; the internet browsing experience is smooth and a very welcome upgrade over past performance. It's strange; a few days ago I was satisfied with the decent albeit declining performance of my 1st Gen Nexus 7. Now that I have this new one, I use them both side by side and the older model feels like a dinosaur. This alone is reason enough to upgrade.

SIZE/WEIGHT: The reduced thickness and weight of the tablet is very noticeable. I often times used my old Nexus 7 tablet while sitting in bed, to check email and browse the web prior to going to sleep. Holding the old Nexus in one hand, and the new one in the other, the differences in size and weight are VERY noticeable. No doubt will provide a more comfortable long term usage experience, especially for extended sessions while on flights or the subway.

BATTERY LIFE: After a couple days of using this new Nexus 7, I can confidently say that the battery life has been significantly improved over the original model. My previous session of about 2 hours straight of use (screen on, using apps that draw semi-frequent data over wi-fi) drained only 20% of the battery life. If I project this out, it would tell me that I could get 10 hours of constant use on one full charge. I haven't run through an entire charge yet from 100% down to 0% (I've been recharging after each use), but I'll try to get to that sometime this week and report back on my total real-world battery life.

CAMERAS: Google added a rear-facing Camera on this new second gen Nexus. While I typically wouldn't use my tablet as a camera, I have tried it out and it takes excellent pictures. Focuses quickly, the images are sharp and the low light performance, while not great, is better than I would have expected. The front-facing camera gets more use for me (I use my tablets to Skype with family). The new front facing camera is noticeably sharper and better in lower light situations than the original Nexus 7 camera was. In low light, the old model was almost unusable. The 2nd gen Nexus 7 low light performance is very acceptable.

SPEAKERS: I've now spent some time using this second-gen Nexus 7 side by side with my original Nexus 7. Separately, they both sound very acceptable for speakers from small tablets. Using them side by side, the improvements to the Nexus 7 are very noticeable, and the sound is more clear even at high volumes. I'd say that this new model sounds far less "tinny" than the original Nexus did. Personally, I don't use the built-in speakers often (I'm normally either listening with headphones, or using bluetooth audio to my Logitech Boombox). But for people who do use the built-in speakers to play music or watch movies, you will appreciate the improvement in the speakers.

OTHER FEATURES: Last night, I realized that this tablet is compatible with Qi Wireless Charging, a discovery which made me VERY happy. I use a Nexus 4 cell phone, and I keep it on my nightstand on the Google Nexus Charging Orb. I attempted to use the orb with this new Nexus 7 tablet, and it worked perfectly. You have to sit the tablet landscape, with the orb centered on the tablet, and it synced up and began charging instantly.

COMPARISONS: I will update this section shortly with my comparison review between this 2nd Gen Nexus 7, the iPad Mini, and the Kindle Fire HD, as soon as I've had more time to test them all side by side.

GRIPES AND COMPLAINTS: Here, I'll list any gripes that I have about the tablet. My first major gripe is that I am not a huge fan of the texture/material used on the back of the tablet. It's a slightly rubberized feeling coating, which I assume they did to create additional grip. However, I've been finding that after holding with one hand for a few minutes, I notice the tablet starting to slide a little bit in my hand. I think this is a combination of the new texture plus the fact that it's thinner than it used to be. I'm probably going to be purchasing a case for it shortly, which should alleviate this problem, but it is still worth noting. This is just a personal preference things (if you normally hold it landscape w/ two hands, you'll probably prefer this new texture over the old one).

All in all, I am VERY impressed with how much faster this tablet is than my original Nexus 7 tablet. As long as this model doesn't suffer the performance slowdown issue of the original Nexus 7, I don't anticipate moving this away from a 5 star product anytime soon, but only time will tell I guess. I will keep this review updated as I go, and add thoughts on more features once I test them out further (the speakers, longer term battery life tests, performance slowdown, etc). If you have anything else you want me to address, please let me know in the comments section and I will be glad to address it.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review

Google has released a number of Nexus branded "hero" smartphones in the past, but the new Google Nexus 7 is the first ever tablet to bear the Google Nexus name. Built by Asus, the Nexus 7 also has the distinction of being the first device to run the Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" operating system.

While the Nexus 7 offers nothing to consumers that can't be found elsewhere - save for Jelly Bean - it offers a number of refinements to the Android tablet experience in terms of both software and hardware. And it does it all at a sub-$200 price point that is meant to dethrone Amazon's Kindle Fire as the reigning Android tablet of choice for consumers.

With specs like a quad-core processor and a 1280 x 800 pixel display, that seems possible and likely.

Hardware

From a hardware perspective, the Google Nexus 7 by Asus is not very different from existing Android tablets, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It measures 198.5mm x 120mm x 10.45mm (7.8in x 4.7in x .4in) in size, weighs 340g (12.0oz), and features a 7-inch ~IPS display that is protected by scratch-resistant glass.

Unlike most other 7-inch tablets, though, Google's low cost flagship tablet offers users a fairly dense 1280 x 800 pixel grid to gaze upon. It's not as sharp as an Apple Retina display, but it's very crisp indeed, and it is easy to view both indoors and outdoors alike.

The unit I reviewed is the limited edition Google I/O 2012 version that features a white back cover that is dimpled like a golf ball. The normal retail version features a backplate that matches the front's dark color; it also receives a metallic band around its edge. Both versions run the same quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM, but the I/O version is limited to 8GB of internal storage while the retail version can be had in 8 or 16GB configurations, for $199 or $249 respectively. There is no ~microSD expansion slot, so Google is expecting Nexus 7 users to make good use of its cloud-based Google Play services.

Google and Asus decided to leave out a rear-facing camera on the Nexus 7, instead opting for a lone forward-facing 1.2 megapixel camera for use in video chats. A micro-USB port on the bottom edge of the tablet is used for charging and PC cable access, and it sits next to a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The only other hardware features on the Nexus 7 are the power/standby key and the volume rocker, both of which are located on the upper right hand edge of the tablet.

The main Android back, home, and task switcher controls are provided entirely on-screen, just as they have been by default since Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It makes for a very clean design, and the texture of the rear panel makes it a comfortable design to hold. Add to that a rock solid build and you have a real winner - save for that lack of microSD expansion.

Usability

From a usability perspective, the most interesting aspect of the Google Nexus 7 and its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system is that everything on this tablet works much more like an Android smartphone than other Android tablets. The notification area has been moved up to the top of the screen, the main app tray button is found on the bottom of the screen, surrounded by shortcuts that are available from every home screen. On the 7-inch Nexus 7, at least, the device operates only in portrait mode when on the home screen, whereas most previous Android tablets where expected to be used primarily in landscape mode.

All of those changes make the device much more user friendly in my opinion. The exception, of course, being the fact that the home screen is locked into portrait mode. That makes things awkward when using an app in landscape mode, since you have to physically rotate the device when you jump back to home. I see no obvious rationale for this design decision.

Otherwise, the Jelly Bean OS on the Nexus 7 feels by and large like an over-sized smartphone - think Samsung Galaxy Note on growth hormones. I was never a fan of the Honeycomb user experience, and feel that this more unified experience between tablets and smartphones is a good thing. I'm just not sure I'll still think that when I finally get around to using a 10-inch Jelly Bean tablet...

Other changes to the notification area can be found on phones and tablets alike. For example, there are no longer Honeycomb style configuration buttons for things like display brightness and Wi-Fi. All that is left is the link to the general Settings app and a screen rotation lock.

But what we gain is a new set of notification features. New style notifications can be expanded with a two-finger swipe to reveal more information, and some notifications can even include on-screen buttons for direct actions. The "call" and "message" buttons for missed calls are a perfect example.

Google Now is Google's response to Apple's Siri - of sorts. It can respond to voice queries and will, depending on the request, respond with a "card" of data and, potentially, some very well-crafted artificial speech, or with standard Google search results. The system will also try to figure you out, offering cards based on what it perceives to be your needs. For example, it will show you the time at home when it thinks you are traveling, and it will warn you of traffic issues for what it believes to be your morning and evening commutes, even going so far as to warn you when extra travel time is required to make appointments.

It's all kinda cool, but does not seem to work all that well for me, at least.

The home screen's widget system has received a bit of an overhaul. Unneeded widgets can now be tossed off of the display, obviating the need to drag them to the trash can icon. When moving widgets from home screen panel to panel, existing widgets will attempt to reorganize themselves to make room, and the widget being dropped on a new panel will reduce its own size, if possible, to make itself fit. It's a smooth process.

In fact, smooth is a good way to describe the Nexus 7 in general. Google claims to have spent a great deal of time increasing the frame rate of animations and user interactions on Android 4.1, and it shows. Everything moves more fluidly, and the Tegra 3 processor proves itself to be both cool-running and fast in the Nexus 7.

Amazon.com : Google Nexus 9 Tablet (8.9-Inch, 32GB, Black, Wi-Fi) : Computers & Accessories

I've been a long time Nexus brand user, owning the Nexus 4/5/7. I sold my iPad 3 but still retain my iPod Touch 4th Generation as dedicated mp3 player. Furthermore, I employ a Dell Venue 8 Pro running Windows 8.1 as a productivity tablet. Please see my profile for my Nexus 5 and 7 reviews. This review is meant for both the technical savvy and the casual user so bear with me as at times I'll veer headfirst into alphabet number soup talk and at times keep it real simple. I also purchased my Nexus 9 directly from Google Play.

If you're the super lazy kind of person, skip to section (11): TLDR, otherwise let's begin:

(1) Hardware:

Personally, in my opinion, high to medium end devices from reputable brands have reached the point where most people won't be able to tell the difference or the difference won't be something they regularly use. That said I'm still going to cover it. If you're not interested in the nerd talk about hardware, then all you need to know is that the tablet is capable hardware wise for demanding users and absurdly overkill for average users. Skip this section of my review and head on down to section (2): Performance.

Behold, the dual core Denver Tegra K-1, the first official 64bit Android ARM chip on a 64bit ARM operating system running the new v8 instruction set. Now, you're thinking, what's so special about 64 bit and what's so good about the v8 instruction set? Well, that's in section (5). Anyways, the K-1 is a dual core clocking in at 2.5 GHz. It's also paired with a 192-core GPU. Honestly, this to most people is just alphabet soup. I have little but disdain for mobile benchmarks given their inherent problems relating to real world tests, but they do show the K-1 performing exceptionally well.

The tablet comes with 2GB of DDR3 RAM made by Micron Technology, which is kind of disappointing given that Android phones like the Note 4 are clocking in at 3 GB of RAM. Given how the Nexus 9 is a true 64 bit tablet, this is a bit troublesome, see section (5).

As usual, comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS, the last three features provided by a Broadcom chip. The 3.5mm standard audio jack is located on the top. Wi-Fi is upgraded to the industry standard of 802.11ac 2x2 which is also known as MiMO, also referred to as "dual band" which allows for much faster in theory Wi-Fi connections. USB is legacy 2.0 rather than 3.0. There's also an electric compass made by Ashai Kasei. Sound is provided by two front face speakers with HTC's BoomSound. See section (2) for more on the speakers. The tablet also stocks dual microphones. Microphone is decent as I was able to operate the voice commands in a quiet room from 7 feet away with a normal voice level. Sorry kids, there isn't any finger print sensor on this tablet.

The display is sized at IPS 8.9" at a 2048x1536 resolution, for a PPI of 281. Sadly, this isn't my Nexus 5's PPI. Google and HTC went for the 4:3 aspect ratio rather than the usual 16:10/16:9 which are both better for movie watching. There are black bars when I loaded up movies. Take that as you will. The screen is the standard Gorilla Glass 3, meaning it's tough but clear. Sorry kids, no sapphire. The tablet runs really bright at the highest level, but I run my around 35-40% and it's still acceptably bright. Viewing angles are solid and you won't have a problem viewing content from odd angles.

At the moment the notification LED on the screen does not function like the Nexus 5 one does, meaning you cannot assign colors to different applications and people. The developers of the app "Lightflow" are allegedly working on making their app compatible.

The device is just under a pound at 0.936 pounds, so pretty light. The dimensions of the device are 6.05 inches by 8.9 inches by 0.312 inches. I can see these tablets are on super model diets. That can't be enjoyable. Someone get my tablet a double bacon cheeseburger stat! Anyways, you won't get tired holding this thing and if you do, hit the gym.

Your color options are a bit expanded over the Nexus 7, with black, white and sand. Google names these "Indigo Black," "Lunar White" and "Sand." Sand is only available in 32GB and LTE is only available in Black 32GB currently. I ordered the "Indigo Black" version. Typically, Nexus devices have different surfaces on their backs depending on the color with the white tending to be more slippery. As for how much space you'll have left after Android 5.0, well that's in (4).

Unfortunately, Google has kept the no-Microsd slot feature again on another Nexus device. Part of this is due to security as it limits what you can plug into your device, partially not wanting to pay Microsoft the licensing fees for the patents and part of this is just a blatant money grab. The Nexus 9 uses Samsung built MLC NAND storage in either 16GB or 32GB models. Google is charging $80 extra for the 32GB model. Based on wholesale NAND pricing easily found on the internet for contract pricing, that costs Google/HTC around $2.32. That results in markup of 3,448% over wholesale prices and that's a low estimate as I can't find the contract pricing for the 16GB chip. I didn't think it was possible, but someone finally is out charging Apple on storage upgrades. Take that as you will.

Now you're thinking, 3,448% markup? That's insane! And you know what? You're absolutely right. Luckily, the Nexus 9 does support USB OTG. More on that later in section (7).

Whew, that was a bit much wasn't it? Have a section summary!

Pros:Blazing fast dual core 64 bit processor, solid Screen at PPI 281, thin and light, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, dual band Wi-Fi, allows OTG and good speakers and mics.

Cons:No Sapphire, No Microsd, $80 to bump from 16 GB to 32 GB, USB 2.0, only three color choices, and 4:3 aspect ratio.

Other:Only 2 GB of RAM, LTE version and Sand color version to be released at a future date.

(2) Performance/Sound/Connectivity:

The Tegra K-1 has already been extensively bench marked and performance graphically wise is about on par with a PS3 or an Xbox 360. The Xbox and PS3 PC graphical equivalent is around an NVidia 7800/7900GTX. That's very old hardware to PC gamers, but to tablet gamers, that's a big gain. Lots of tech sites will claim that tablets (barring the Microsoft Surface line) are delivering PC performance, but they never actually define what that means. My Dell Venue 8 Pro can run Team Fortress 2. I would definitely not call that PC like performance compared to my Windows desktop or even a basic Chromebook.

Sound is solid for a tablet, which doesn't say much as a run of the mill Bluetooth speaker will provide better sound. It's better than my old iPad 3, but tablet sound still has a long way to go before it can replace a regular speaker.

The Nexus 9 per other user tests and reported on XDA is not slimport capable, meaning you cannot connect the tablet to a HDMI equipped TV via a slimport adapter as video out from the USB port is not allowed. I don't have one of these adapters, mostly because they're fairly expensive.

I've never seen the real need for cellular on my tablets, thus I continued my buying of Wi-Fi only. However, the tablet does offer an LTE version to be sold in the future. The LTE version currently works on GMS, CDMA, HSPA and LTE, meaning it should in theory work on all major carriers in the US, but we'll have to wait for actual bands to be provided. Verizon may make a big stink again about letting another Nexus tablet on their network. You probably just have to buy the Nexus 9 from Verizon if and when they let it on their network if you want a Verizon LTE Nexus 9.

The Nexus 9 will not connect to a Micro USB to Ethernet adapter, or at least the Smays adapter I have for a wired connection. Bluetooth is fine and quickly connects to a variety of devices. Wi-Fi quickly connected to both my regular router and my extender.

(3) Camera:

Cameras include a front facing camera at 1.6 MP at f/2.4 and a back camera at 8.1 MP at f/2.4 both at 4:3 aspect ratio. There's a LED flash as well on the back. Nothing has changed about being silly taking pictures with a tablet camera since my Nexus 7 review. Anyways, iFixit tore down a Nexus 9 and the camera is the same one as the HTC Desire 610, thus a middle range quality camera. Front camera records at 720P where the back camera records at 1080P. Manual exposure is an option in settings. No HDR, but all of the regular functions from panorama, to lens blur and photo sphere are here.

Camera quality is okay for both, with better results in well-lit areas. Image stabilization is about on par with the Nexus 5 and flash is fairly weak. Focus speed unfortunately seems actually a tad slower than the Nexus 5 which already had slow focus speed.

The camera itself is not flush with the back of the device and protrudes a little.

(4) Android 5.0 Lollipop:

Welcome to Google's latest and greatest (yes, I copied that from my Nexus 5 review). Android 5.0, also known as Lollipop brings extra features to the ball game. For one, ART replaced Dalvik, notifications are refreshed to be produced on cards and grouped by types of applications that generate them, and the recent app button shows now a stack of cards rather than applications vertically imposed. ART, or Android Run Time complies processes rather than running then just in time, which should increase performance. ART was previously offered alternative on devices like the Nexus 4 and 5, but it wasn't the default.

Build LRX21R was released a few days ago and is now makings its way to Nexus 9s in mass over the air. Build LRX21R which is a Nexus 9 specific patch to Android 5.0 seems to have fixed a number of software issues and overall the tablet seems faster on opening applications and loading content than it did on the build LRX21L that shipped with the Nexus 9.

Animations have been reworked and notifications are now able to be displayed on your lock screen (similar to how widgets allowed this on Android 4.4). Google seems to have ripped off Microsoft Vista's Aero wheel animation for applications.

Battery life gets a boost from optimizations to restrict the operation of applications. A series of security related improvements are made, including default encryption. If you have an Android Wear device, you can now automatically unlock when a device running 5.0 is close enough, a form of trusted area. I can now see frat boys grabbing an Android smart watch to unlock a passed out friend's phone/tablet.

Like all good Nexus devices, the Nexus 9 has none of the carrier or manufacture obstacles to getting operating system updates. Nor does it have any of the "skins" that companies such as HTC, LG, Samsung and others put over stock Android, meaning the Nexus 9 ships with absolutely pure Android. Furthermore, like all good Android devices, you're free to customize to your heart's content. Don't want any apps on your home screen? That's just fine. Want so many you can't see your background? Go for it. Hate the whole theme that stock 5.0 comes with? Install another launcher like Themer. You decide what your device looks like. That's the power of the Home Depot...I mean Android.

Applications are still kind of lacking for Android in terms of tablet and some apps are simply not going to work on the newest version of Android until developers patch them. Also, many are geared for 16:10 aspect creating some issues with the tablet's 4:3 aspect ratio.

The back, home and recent on screen buttons have been simplified into something resembling the buttons from a play station controller. Home is now a circle, recent apps is a single square and back is a closed arrow.

Android Lollipop 5.0 takes up a little under 6.5 GB of space. My Nexus 9 32 GB fresh out of the box and after a mandatory 264 MB patch had 25.6 GB free. Not as bad as Windows, but still quite hefty.

Widget selection is identical to the Nexus 5 launcher where widgets are selected by holding on the home screen rather than the app drawer.

I restarted both my Nexus 5 and my Nexus 9 and opened Chrome at the same time both on the same Wi-Fi network. The Nexus 9 loaded Chrome faster. I tried the same for YouTube and the Nexus 5 loaded faster. Google Drive they loaded about the same. Google Earth loaded a second or two faster on the Nexus 9. The Nexus 5 loaded the Amazon app initially faster but the Nexus 9 hands down beat it in loading all of the content in the app.

For those of you who refuse to hunt and peck in your typing, Swype works.

The native built in video player won't play MVK, MP4, MV4 or AVI. But it is easy to transfer any file format to the device, unlike iOS.

Finally, if you get bored, go to settings -> About Tablet -> Android Version - Tap a few times till the lollipops come up and then hold. Prepare for Flappy Android! Google built in an Easter Egg clone of Flappy Bird, which is really just a modern version of the classic game Helicopter. See my Photobucket link for more details.

(5) 64 Bit & ARMv8:

As the Nexus 9 is the first Android tablet that's running both a 64bit processor and a 64bit operating system, I felt a need to explain what 64 bit processing actually is and does. Furthermore, the K-1 is one of the first Android oriented processors that is running ARMv8. Explaining 64 bit in detail could take an essay, so here's the simplistic short explanation: Data is processed in bits and 64 bit vs the existing 32 bit allows larger amounts of data to be processed faster in larger registers, thus in theory allowing a device running both a 64 bit processor and a 64 bit operating system to perform significantly faster than a 32 bit processor/OS. 64 bit does not operate 100% faster than 32 bit.

Due to the increased ability to processor more data faster, a 64 bit system like the Nexus 9, iPhone 6, most Windows desktop and laptops and many Chromebooks will consume more RAM. This is why the 64 bit push has generally been associated with having more RAM as 64 bit computing allows a device to access more than 4GB of memory locations. Electronics in history have run into serious RAM related crash issues when a 64 bit device is run on 2GB or less RAM. Many Windows Blue Screens of Death were related to RAM overruns.

ARMv8 is ARM's (who designs the basic foundation for ARM processors that power mobile devices from Apple to Samsung) latest instruction set release. Ars Technica reported that the iPhone 5s's processor gains were 90% from ARMv8 and 10% from various other aspects like 64 bit and processor improvements showing just how important ARM's work is. The K-1's massive performance over 32 bit processors seems to suggest this is true, especially since it is just a dual core processor where many of the 32 bit were and still are quad core processors. Every manufacturer has stated they're moving towards chips running on ARMv8, but this is the first mainstream one to hit the Android market.

(6) Battery & Charging:

Battery is rated at 3.8 volt, 6700 mAh, and 25.46 watt hours with an alleged 9.5 hours of browsing. Gaming will of course reduce battery life and given the graphics core on the K-1, gamers are going to run the battery down. I'm getting about 7-8 hours on mundane usage and charging speed is about average with other tablets.

As much as this tablet represents the future, it also represents the past. No wireless charging available. Personally, I've never been a fan of wireless charging simply because it generates excess heat inside the battery which tends to reduce battery longevity. Wireless charging is without question more convenient, but if you plan on keeping your devices for a while or handing them down to friends and family, extending the battery life of a device should be important and wireless charging doesn't do that. The Nexus 9 is still going to be plugged in and charged via the standard, ubiquitous micro USB.

(7) USB OTG:

USB OTG, otherwise known as On-The-Go is a series of protocols that allows the access of the USB port for things other than charging. The Nexus 9 supports USB OTG meaning that instead of paying $80 for an extra 16 GB of storage at a 3,448% markup, you can instead buy low cost flash drives, SD cards and Microsd cards for 50 cents or less per gigabyte. Couple that with a low priced USB Reader like a Meenova and a low priced USB OTG cable that can be found for less than $2 right here on Amazon and you've got storage to spare. One fabulous aspect of using external media is that it's incredibly easy to share and transfer large amounts of files without using data. Sharing 50 GB of files is not a fast proposition with the cloud.

Unfortunately, the Nexus 9 does not natively recognize most USB OTG flash drives. It will recognize smart phones and automatically start a file transfer. For flash drives, you're going to need some form of app to bridge the gap. USB On-The-Go Disk Explorer has a free version, but I'm just going to use the Nexus Media Importer app I've had for a while.

Nexus Media Importer app works just fine as long as the file format is not exFat. However, it will not play MKV files natively, but VLC will play them from the Nexus Media Importer. There is zero lag on OTG streaming even on 8GB HD quality movies. Keyboards, mice, flash drives are all handled without problem. Also, I was able to copy files back and forth between the tablet and the flash drive.

(8) Build & Looks:

This tablet does look like an iPad. You could probably walk into an Apple store and people wouldn't be any wiser. A metal frame runs around the edges with soft plastic backing. This is a clear improvement upon the Nexus 7 line. The back is a smooth matte black. The buttons for power and volume up/down barely protrude from the case and requires some getting used to. Side bezels are 0.7 centimeters, and top and bottom bezels are slight less than 2.5 centimeters.

(9) Other:

Now, where should you buy this? Amazon offers free shipping and for most states, no sales taxes. However, Amazon's RMA process in the event of a defect can often go hairy as at some point in time, Amazon sends you over to the manufacturer, or HTC to fix your problems. This can result in a run around where HTC will tell you to contact Google, Google tell you to contact where you bought it from, aka Amazon in this case and Amazon telling you to contact HTC. This has happened to more than a few electronics buyers.

Google directly sells this, but charges shipping of $9.99 for three day delivery. There's also sales tax but it's wildly varied from less than 50 cents to $30+. Google however, will take back your Nexus device on RMA without more than a basic inquiry if you bought the device from them. You'll pay more than Amazon, but you'll have a much easier time in case of a defect.

Local stores like BestBuy also sell it with price match to Amazon. Depending on your state, you'll have different sale tax mileage. Note it is obviously easier to return a defective product to a local physical store.

HTC/Google is also selling an origami cover similar to the type that the Kindle Fire line has as well as a keyboard cover that turns it into a laptop.

iFixit gave the Nexus 9 a 3 out of 10 on repair-ability so probably bad idea to go about fixing it yourself.

(10) Quality Control:

Sadly, this Nexus release appears to be mirroring the original Nexus 7 rather than the Nexus 4 or 5 launches with significant quality control issues. While plenty of users are reporting that their devices have zero hardware problems, far too many are reporting significant light bleed, back cover flimsiness, broken NFC, bad Wi-Fi and other hardware issues for those to be outliers. Therefore, in terms of pure quality control issues, my suggestion is to simply wait a few months until the quality control issues are sorted out. When the device is properly made it's amazing, but when it's not, it's terrible.

I happened to get a device with minimal back flex and no noticeable light bleed. During my application quickness tests, I noticed my Nexus 5 actually has more light bleed and I've been using that since November of 2013 without noticing. Mine, like others does get a noticeably warm in the top by the camera during usage.

(11) TLDR:

$399 base unit, lightning fast, newest Android OS, looks like an iPad, Xbox360/PS3 graphics, no Microsd, no wireless charging, USB OTG allowed and no wireless charging.

Conclusion: Phenomenal tablet that's exceptionally flexible and productive but currently hampered by quality control issues. If you're set on buying a high quality Android tablet, wait a month or two before picking a Nexus 9 up.

For some reason I cannot post pictures, so here's my Photobucket album of the Nexus 9: http://tinyurl.com/mb58bcl

ASUS Google Nexus 7 (2013) İncelemesi

Google'ın 2013 için yenilediği Nexus 7'yi her yönüyle, baştan aşağı test ettik!

İlk Nexus 7, feda ettiği bazı özelliklerine rağmen son derece etkileyici bir cihazdı. Ucuzluğu (daha doğrusu yurtdışındaki ucuz fiyatı), başarısının uzun soluklu olmasında büyük rol oynadı. Ülkemizde şu an yaklaşık 760 TL'ye satılan tablet, kızgın rekabete boyun eğmek üzereydi ki yeni Nexus 7 ortaya çıktı.

Temmuz'da tanıtılan yeni Nexus 7, bazıları tarafından "Nexus 7 2013" şeklinde orijinalinden ayırt ediliyor. Nexus cihazları, bildiğiniz gibi saf bir Google deneyimiyle geliyor, yani Nexus'larda Android'in en temiz haliyle karşı karşıyasınız. Yani Samsung ve HTC'nin TouchWiz'li, Sense'li arayüzlerinden kaçacak yer arıyorsanız, Nexus'ta huzur bulacaksınız.

Ancak yeni Nexus 7'den yepyeni bir işletim sistemi beklemeyin: Cihaz Android 4.2 yerine bu kez Android 4.3 ile geliyor. Cihaz, uzun zamandır konuşulan Android 5.0 veya Google'ın yeni ortaya çıkardığı Android KitKat'tan ise (şimdilik) yoksun.

Henüz Türkiye'de satışa sunulmayan yeni Nexus 7'nin 16GB'lık sürümünün yurtdışı fiyatı, 310 dolar civarlarında. Önceki sürümün yurtdışı fiyatı yaklaşık 250 dolardı, ancak donanımda yapılan önemli geliştirmeler bu farkı karşılayacak kadar iyi. Cihazın 32GB'lık bir sürümü de olacak. Bu sürümün yurtdışı fiyatı ise 375 dolar.

Yeni Nexus 7 şimdilik yalnızca "sadece Wi-Fi" modeline sahip. Cihazın mobil ağ destekli bir modeli de olacak (bu kez LTE destekli bir model de olacak), ancak Google bu modelin ne zaman çıkacağını açıklamadı.

Nexus 7'yi kullanmak

Yanınıza kolayca alıp, çantanıza atıp taşıyacağınız bir tablet arıyorsanız, yeni Nexus 7 tam size göre. Değerli ekranınızı çiziklerden korumaya yönelik bir kılıfa veya bir ekran koruyucuya ihtiyacınız olacak. Donanım konusuna gelince yeni Nexus 7'nin değerli parçalardan oluştuğunu görüyoruz. Ön tarafta oldukça parlak bir Gorilla cam bulunuyor, ekran kapalıyken ön yüzde tek gördüğünüz ayrıntı, video görüşmeleri yapmanıza izin veren ön kamera.

Cihaz önceki sürümüne göre hem daha ince, hem de daha hafif (yeni Nexus 7: 200 x 114 x 8.7mm ve 290g, ilk Nexus 7: 198.5 x 120 x 10.5mm and 340g). Dikkatli baktığınızda cihazın boyunun biraz uzadığını fark edebilirsiniz, ancak bu ihmal edilebilir bir fark. Cihazın LTE sürümünün 9 gram daha ağır olduğunu belirtelim.

Cihazın çerçevesinin etrafındaki plastik, metale boyanmış kısım, yeni Nexus 7'de yok. Dolayısıyla Nexus 7 tamamen siyaha bürünmüş bir tablet. Ekran, dışarıya doğru bükülen kenarlarla bütünleşiyor ve kesintisiz bir arka panel meydana getiriyor.

Ekranın çerçeve boyutu ise ekranı kenarlara daha da yaklaştıracak biçimde daralmış. Bu durum yeni Nexus 7'yi tutmanızı zorlaştırıyor, zira artık baş parmağınızı ekranın üzerine koyup dinlendirecek bir yer bulamıyorsunuz. Bu nedenle tableti tutmak için yeni yollar aramanız gerekecek. Onu tamamen avucunuzun içine alabilirsiniz, ancak bu bir süre sonra yorucu olabiliyor. Bazı kullanıcılar yeni Nexus 7'yi büyük bir telefon gibi altta serçe parmağının, kenarda ise baş parmağının üzerine yerleştirerek de tutabiliyor.

Cihazı elinizde tutmaya çalışırken yaşadığınız bir başka rahatsızlık ise alttaki güç portunun derinize sürtünmesi. Sol köşe ise avucunuzun içine biraz batabiliyor.

Nexus 7'nin tasarımı

Arka tarafın dokulu yüzey yerine mat plastikle değiştirilmiş olması da tutuşu zorlaştıran etkenlerden. Ancak bu çok önemli olmayabilir. Çoğu kullanıcının Nexus 7'sini kılıfla kullanacağını düşünürsek bunun pek önemi yok.

Bir başka küçük sorun, ekranın tam bir parmak izi toplayıcısı olduğu. Bizce yeni Nexus 7'nizi bacaklarınızın üzerinde sık sık temizlemeye hazırlıklı olun.

Ekranın üzerinde kameranın dışında çok dikkatle baktığınızda görebileceğiniz bir uyarı ışığı da var. Güç düğmesi ve ses düğmesi, sağ tarafta bulunuyor.

Cihazın arka tarafına oyulmuş Nexus logosunun yanında bir yenilik daha var: ilk Nexus 7'de olmayan, çoğu kullanıcının ısrarla istediği arka kamera yeni Nexus 7'de yerini almış.

Yeni Nexus 7'deki hoparlörlerin iki adet olduğunu, yani stereo ses elde edebildiğinizi de söyleyelim. Hoparlörler cihazın arka tarafında, üstte ve altta bulunuyor, bu nedenle yatay modda izlediğiniz videolarda size stereo ses sunuyor.

İlk Nexus 7 daha uygun bir fiyat için bazı özellikleri bir kenara bırakan bir cihazdı. Ancak yeni Nexus 7 size bu hissi vermiyor, aksine tam anlamıyla kaliteli bir cihaz kullandığınızı hissedebiliyorsunuz.

Ekran

Bahsettiğimiz kalite farkı, en çok ekranı gördüğünüzde ortay çıkıyor. İlk Nexus 7, 800 x 1.280 çözünürlük ve 216PPI piksel yoğunluğuna sahipti. Bu değerler kötü değil, ancak yeni Nexus 7 323PPI ile iPad'in 264PPI'lik Retina ekranını geçmeyi başarıyor. 1.200 x 1.920 çözünürlük sunan cihazda metinler büyüleyici derecede keskin, resimler ise inanılmaz derecede net görünüyor. Bu kadar net bir ekrana gerçekten ihtiyacımızın olup olmadığı tabi ki farklı bir konu, ancak çoğumuz cep ve tabletlerde bu özelliği arıyor. Ekran camı ve ekran arasındaki mesafenin kısalığı, ekranı daha da güzel kılıyor. Aynı şekilde ekran, farklı açılardan da harika görünüyor - tabletlerin sıkça paylaşıldığını düşündüğümüzde bu iyi bir özellik.

Ekran parlaklığının tableti dışarıda kullandığınızda çok ideal olduğunu söyleyemeyiz, ancak parlaklığı son seviyeye getirdiğinizde sizi idare edecektir.

Tabletin renk üretimi de çok daha iyi. İlk Nexus 7'de sıkça şikayet edilen bir konu, resimlerin soluk görünmesiydi. Cihazın fiyatı, bu sorunu yok saymamıza yetiyordu ancak yeni Nexus 7'de renkler, eskisinden çok daha sıcak. Bununla birlikte ekran, Note 8.0 ve Galaxy S4'ün ekranlarının canlılığından hala uzak. Ancak yeni Nexus 7'nin ekranına baktığınızda asla hayal kırıklığına uğramayacağınızı söyleyebiliriz.

Hayal kırıklığına uğrayacağınız konu, en büyük Nexus 7'nin 32GB depolama alanı sunması olacak. Google'ın şu sıralarda cihazlarına harici depolama seçeneği eklemediği de biliniyor. Dolayısıyla Google'ın istediği gibi verilerinizin bir kısmını bulutta saklamanız gerekebilir.

32GB'lık depolama alanının sizin için 32GB'lık bomboş bir alan anlamına gelmediğini de hatırlatalım. İşletim sistemi, depolamanızın büyük bir bölümünü yiyor ve size sadece 26GB kalıyor. Bu alanı birkaç film ve HD oyunla kolayca tüketebilirsiniz. Dolayısıyla 16GB'lık modelde daha da kısıtlanmış olacaksınız.

Çoğu modern cihazda olduğu gibi yeni Nexus 7'de de ekran parlaklığını ortama göre ayarlamaya izin veren bir sensör bulunuyor. Otomatik parlaklığı kapatıp parlaklığı sonuna kadar açarsanız güneş gözlüğüne ihtiyacınız olacak, ekran son derece parlak.

Nexus 7'nin pili artık 4.325mAh değil. Google son tabletinde bu kez 3.950mAh kapasiteli bir pil kullanmış. Bu değişikliğin Nexus 7'yi hafifleştirmekten başka büyük bir etkisi yok gibi görünüyor. Yeni Nexus 7'nin pil ömrünün, Android 4.3'teki iyi pil yönetimi sayesinde ilk Nexus 7'ye göre daha iyi olduğunu söylemek mümkün. Cihazı uygu modu aldığınızda derin bir uykuya daldığını rahatlıkla söyleyebiliriz.

Arayüz ve performans

Eğer kutudan sizin için özelleştirilmiş bir cihaz çıkmasını bekliyorsanız, yanlış yerdesiniz. Nexus cihazlarının amacı size en doğal Android'i sunmak. Yeni Nexus 7 de size tam olarak saf, değiştirilmemiş bir Android 4.3 sunuyor.

Bu beş giriş ekranına sahip olduğunuz anlamına geliyor. Tabi ki farklı bir launcher kullanmanız ve ince ayarlarla giriş ekranlarını değiştirmeniz mümkün. Çoğu kullanıcı, custom ROM yüklemeye gerek kalmadan farklı launcher kullanma yolunu tercih edebiliyor.

Sonuç olarak yeni Nexus 7'de size sunulan arayüz, önceki Jelly Bean sürümlerine çok benziyor. Android'in önemli özelliklerinden olan widget'lar artık sadece giriş ekranlarınızı değil, kilit ekranınızı da süslüyor. Bu sayede kilidi açmadan önemli bilgilerinize bir bakışta ulaşabiliyorsunuz.

Nexus cihazlarının Android güncellemelerini ilk alan cihazlar olduğunu da hatırlatalım. Yani güncelleme tüm ceplerden ve tabletlerden önce size geldiğinde "Yükle" düğmesine basmanız yeterli olacak.

Jelly Bean'in görünümüne sahip Android 4.3, oldukça karanlık bir renk şeması kullanıyor. Mavi ve siyahlar oldukça ağırlıklı. Bu cihazı farklı kılsa da zaman içinde sıkıcı olabilir.

Ancak arayüz oldukça sezgisel ve içinde dolaşmak son derece kolay. Yeni kullanıcılar menüleri biraz karışık bulabilirler, ancak Android'i daha önce kullanmış olanlar hiç yabancılık çekmeyecekler.

İşletim sisteminde yapılan değişikliklerin çoğu arka planda. Bize görünen birkaç yenilik de var, kullanıcı profilleri gibi. Ancak Bluetooth 4.0, OpenGL ES 3.0 ve daha iyi DRM kodlama bizce daha önemli yenilikler.

Google, yeni Nexus 7'de işe yarar bir ekran klavyesi sunmak için elinden geleni yapmış. Swype ile tanıştığımız, daha sonra Swiftkey'in de aldığı çizerek yazma işlevi artık yeni Nexus 7'de de var. Yine de bazı kullanıcılar Google'ın çözümü yerine Swiftkey'i tercih edebilir. Zira Swiftkey'de klavyenin temasını değiştirebildiğiniz gibi numaralarla harfler arasında geçiş daha kolay.

Performansa geldiğimizde ise tabletin adeta uçtuğunu söylemeliyiz. Project Butter ile hızlanan Android 4.2 ve dolayısıyla Nexus 7'deki Android 4.3, 1.5GHz dört çekirdekli Krait işlemci, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro yonga seti ve 2GB RAM, yeni Nexus 7'nizin takılmasının pek zor olduğunun ispatı. Uygulamalar ve oyunlar hızla açılıyor, widget'larla dolu ekranlar arasındaki geçiş son derece hızlı; üstelik takılmanın emaresi yok.

Benzer şekilde yeni Nexus 7 çoklu görevde de oldukça başarılı. Ekranın altında gösterilen düğmelerden biriyle ulaşabildiğiniz işlev, testimizde 20 açık uygulamayı kolayca yönetebildi. Nexus 7'nin çoklu görev alanında da son derece güçlü olduğunu söylemeliyiz.

Web tarayıcısı

Nexus 7'nin asıl amacı medya tüketmek; yani onu Asus Transformer Prime veya Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 ile karşılaştırmak hata olur. Nexus 7'nin amacı, size istediğiniz zaman istediğiniz içeriği hızla sunmak.

İnternette dolaşırken Nexus 7'nin hızından oldukça etkilendik. Bir tablette hatırladığımız en hızlı web sayfası açma performansını yeni Nexus 7'de yaşadığımızı rahatça söyleyebiliriz. Cihaz, diğer cihazlarda yüklenmesi uzun saniyeler sürebilen masaüstü web sitelerini hızla açabildi.

Web sayfalarına yaklaşmadan bakmak da bizim için oldukça keyifliydi. Yazı oldukça net ki ona yakınlaşmanın hata olacağını düşünebiliyorsunuz. Kısacası Nexus 7'de yazıları okumak son derece kolay.

Yeni Nexus 7'nin Flash desteklemediğini ve web tarayıcısı olarak Chrome'u kullandığını belirtelim. Flash desteğini farklı bir web tarayıcısı kullanarak veya Flash'ı Google Play'den yükleyerek edinebilirsiniz. Ancak bizce Chrome'u bırakıp farklı bir web tarayıcısına geçmek için önemli bir neden yok.

Tabletlerde sorunlu ve yavaş olduğunu bildiğimiz Chrome, Nexus 7'de sorunsuzca çalışıyor. Ayrıca yer imlerinizi cihazlar arasında eşitleyebilmek ve tembelseniz giriş ekranınıza yer imi widget'ını ekleyebilmek harika işlevler.

Özetlemek gerekirse yeni Nexus 7, muhtemelen piyasadaki en iyi taşınabilir internet cihazlarından bir tanesi. Henüz 3G/LTE sürümü olmasa da bu yakın zamanda değişecek. Bazı kullanıcılar 7 inç'lik ekranın web'de gezinmek için küçük olduğunu düşünebilir; ancak onu elinize alıp biraz oynadığınızda fikriniz değişecek.

Filmler, müzik ve kitaplar

Nexus 7'nin ana amacının medya tüketimi olduğunu söylemiştik. Cihazı tek elle tutmanız zaman zaman zor bir iş olsa da koltuğunuzda kıvrılıp kitap okumak veya film izlemek çok kolay.

Yeni Nexus 7, aslında çok daha pahalıya satılması gereken bir cihaz; ancak Google onu ucuza satarak bizlere bir ekosistem satmaya çalışıyor. Bunu sadece uygulamalar ve oyunlar için yaptığını düşünmeyin, işin içinde filmler, TV içeriği, kitaplar ve dergiler de var. Ancak bu son saydığımız hizmetlerin çoğu maalesef henüz ülkemize sunulmuyor.

Ancak Google'ın ülkemizdeki Play Store kısıtlamaları olmasaydı dahi çok ucuz bir içeriğe sahip olmayacaktık. iTunes kadar zengin bir içerik sunmayan Play Store'daki filmler, DVD ve Blu-ray seçeneklerinden genellikle çok daha pahalı. Yine ülkemizde sunulmayan dergi ve kitaplara geldiğimizde ise en çok okunanları bulmakta zorlanmayacağınızı, ancak diğer yayınları bulamayabileceğinizi söyleyebiliriz.

İçerik satın almak veya kiralamak için Google'ın hizmetlerine kısıtlı değilsiniz. Örneğin Amazon MP3 ve Amazon Kindle sayesinde farklı mağazalardan alışveriş yapmanız mümkün.

Stereo ses sunan yeni Nexus 7'nin ses kalitesi oldukça iyi. YouTube videolarının ses kalitesi sizi büyülemeyebilir, ancak Google'ın Debble adını verdiği tanıtım videosundaki ses harika. Ses seviyesi biraz daha yüksek olabilirdi, ancak bu fiyat seviyesindeki bir cihazda daha kötüsünü de bulabileceğimizden bunu eksik olarak görmüyoruz.

Yeni Nexus 7 medyaları Smart TV'nize akış yapacak kolay bir yol sunmuyor. Herhangi bir adaptöre veya uygulamaya ihtiyaç duymadan böyle bir işlevin sunulması harika olabilirdi. Yine de üçüncü parti uygulama iMedia HD'yi denediğimizde harika çalıştığını, YouTube ve galeri içeriğini rahatça TV'ye yansıtabildiğimizi söyleyelim. Uygulama PS3 ve Apple TV'yle bile uyumlu.

Kamera

Tabletle fotoğraf çekmek garip görünmenize neden olabilir, ancak Nexus 7'nin boyutları büyük bir telefona daha yakın olduğundan fotoğraf çekerken daha normal görüneceksiniz.

Yine de yeni Nexus 7'yle çok fazla fotoğraf çekmemenizde fayda var, çünkü kamaranın kalitesi oldukça düşük. Çektiğiniz fotoğraflar çok kötü değil, ancak vasatlar.

Cihaz, 1.2MP'lik bir ön ve 5MP'lik arka yüz kamerasıyla geliyor. İlk Nexus 7'nin en çok eleştirilen yönlerinden birinin arka kamerasının bulunmayışı olduğunu düşünürsek, tableti çevirmeden fotoğraf çekebilmek şüphesiz kullanımı daha rahat, hoş bir işlev.

Kamera yazılımı, Nexus 4'tekiyle aynı. Yani birkaç filtre, beyaz dengesi seçeneği ve geotagging işlevine sahipsiniz. Herhangi bir yenilik yok. Aynısı videolar için de geçerli, ancak artık video çekerken ekrana dokunarak fotoğraf çekebiliyorsunuz.

Fotoğrafların renk dengesinin müthiş olduğunu söylemek zor, kareler ya fazlasıyla soğuk, ya da aşırı sıcak görünüyorlar ve dengeyi bulamıyorlar. Düşük ışıklandırmada fotoğraf çekmeyi ise unutun. Cihazın üzerinde flaş yok; eğer bulunduğunuz yeri zor görüyorsanız iyi bir fotoğraf çekme ihtimaliniz yok denecek kadar düşük.

Fotoğraf çekerken cihazı kımıldatmanız, fotoğrafın bulanıklaşmasına neden olacak. Bu yüzden aksiyon fotoğraflarını da unutun.

Yapay ışıklandırmada çektiğimiz fotoğraflarda karlanmalara rastladık. Gün ışığındaki fotoğraflar ise yeteri kadar keskindi.

Uygulamalar ve oyunlar

Google'ın Android Play Store'u ile iOS App Store arasındaki fark eskisi kadar büyük değil. Her ikisi de yeteri kadar uygulamaya sahip, ancak Google'ın mağazasında daha garip uygulamalara rastlamanız mümkün (Google'ın gevşek kurallarından dolayı).

Bellek kartınız olmadığı için uygulamaların dahili depolama alanını kullanacağını unutmayın. HD oyunlar, özellikle 16GB'lık modelde boş alanınızı hızla tüketebilir. İsterseniz farklı uygulama mağazalarını da kullanabilirsiniz, ancak bu durumda Google tarafından izlenmeyen uygulamalar indirmiş olacaksınız, dolayısıyla dikkatli olmanız gerekiyor.

Nexus 7'nin HD ekranı, uygulamalarda ve oyunlarda son derece keskin görüntüler sunuyor.

Yeni Nexus 7'nin GPS'iyle yaptığımız denemelerde cihazın uydulara hızla ve kolaylıkla kilitlendiğini gördük. Ancak navigasyonu 10-30 dk. kullandıktan sonra GPS sinyalini kaybedebiliyorsunuz - bu durumda tek çözüm cihazınızı baştan başlatmak. Google bu sorunun farkında ve çok geçmeden onu bir güncellemeyle onarmasını bekleyebiliriz.

Pil ömrü

Asus ve Google'ın pil ömrü için yaptığı çalışmaları kutlamamız gerekiyor. Cihazın pil kapasitesi kağıt üzerinde 4.325mAh'den 3.950mAh'ye gerilemiş olsa da yeni Nexus 7'nin pili adeta bitmiyor.

Nexus 7 farklı bir işlemci ve yeni bir ekran kullanıyor ve dolayısıyla onun pil ömrünü eski Nexus 7'yle karşılaştırmak ve puanlandırmak zor. Ancak tabletin beklentimizin üzerinde bir pil performansı sunduğunu söylemeliyiz.

Gerçek hayatta alacağınız sonuçlar, tabletinizi nasıl kullandığınıza bağlı olarak değişebilir. Biz testlerimizde Nexus 7'yi neredeyse tüm gün boyunca kullanabildik.

Tüm Google hizmetleri açıkken yaklaşık 2 saat internette sörf yaptık, yaklaşık 45 dakika Kindle'dan kitap okuduk ve push e-posta almaya ayarlı bir Exchange hesabından 20-30 e-posta gönderdik. Cihazı Bluetooth üzerinden otomobilin ses sistemine bağladık ve 20 dakikalık sürüşümüz boyunca müzik akışı yaptık. Bu yolculuk sırasında navigasyon için Google Maps Navigation'ı kullandık.

Sabah 08.00'da tam şarj ile başladığımız testimizi akşam yüzde 41 doluluk oranıyla tamamladık. 

Yine de ne kadar çok uygulama yüklerseniz, o kadar çok arka plan uygulamasının çalışacağını unutmamanız gerekiyor. 3G/LTE sürüm piyasaya çıktığında, bu sürümün daha çok pil tüketeceğini tahmin etmek de güç değil.
