Is a 7inch tablet big enough?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm thinking of buying the Google Nexus 7, but i'm not sure if the 7 inch is large enough.

I'd like to use the tablet for perhaps watching movies while i'm traveling or browsing the web.

 

I want to know if the screen isn't too tiny like my phone (galaxy nexus), is too small to use for instance a browser.

I also find the typing experience influential, so i'd like the keyboard to be not too small to type on.

 

Maybe some of you have a 7 inch tablet or have experience with one and could fill me in on these questions.

 

Thanks.

Typing on the Nexus 7 is soooooo much better than other tablets.  It just fits in the hands so well and makes browsing very comfortable.   The screen is an okay size for streaming video, but a ten inch tablet would be better for that.

Hi guys

I'm thinking of buying my first tablet and thought of new Nexus 7. I saw on amazon that many people (87) gave it 1 star,

many have reboot issues, charging issues, build quality issues. Seems to me like 20% of Nexus' have a flaw

Did any of you have any issues?

 

Thanks

You probably shouldn't worry about that too much. It's always the case that you only hear about the people who are having problems. 

Even if it's broken. You still have your warrenty.

yeah, its much better than the ten inch form factor once you start using it, it's so light and portable and the ppi is so great that you will never want to go back

Some 10" tablets (Xperia Tablet Z) feel just as light. That said, you'll be paying a premium for a light and thin 10" tablet.


I need more SSDs.
