The 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet (2012) from ASUS represents a premium Android-based device that delivers the best Google experience available on a tablet. Aside from including easy-to-use software and state-of-the-art hardware, the Nexus 7 is the first tablet to ever feature Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Jelly Bean brings intuitive controls and a plethora of customizable options. With smarter notifications, beautiful new widgets and home screen customization, the Nexus 7 takes advantage of Jelly Bean's easy to use drag-and-drop controls.

Finding that perfect balance between practicality and mobility is a difficult task. Fortunately, the Nexus 7 combines both into a slim, lightweight tablet with a perfectly-sized 7" IPS display, Wi-Fi wireless connectivity and 4G mobile broadband for accessing the Internet from anywhere. Plus, with a 1280 x 800 native resolution, you'll be able to enjoy deeper black levels and vibrant color when playing your high-definition video content. The screen is made of scratch-resistant Corning glass so you don't end up with unwanted marks when carrying your Nexus 7 around.

Mobility is key for any tablet and the Nexus 7 is no exception. It is only 0.41" thin and weighs less than a pound so you can carry it around with you wherever you go without adding any bulk to your bag. You don't have to worry about low battery life either since the Nexus 7 can run up to 9.5 hours during HD video playback. Actual battery life may vary with use. 9.5 hours was achieved by playing a 720p video at 100 nits brightness with an external headset, Wi-Fi turned on and logged into Gmail.

Note: The nVIDIA Tegra 3 processor can run at 1.3GHz in single-core mode.

High Performance in a Slim, Portable Package

You can also tap the microphone on the keyboard and use your voice to type out your emails, SMS or anything else you want to text. The Android Beam makes it easy to share contacts, websites, apps, maps, directions and YouTube videos to other people close by.

    The deciding factor for me to buy this tablet was the fact that my two boss' showed me their new gadgets at work knowing that they too are techie fans. We always compete to see who has the best technological wonder in their hands at work. They pushed me to get one by showing me all the features and all the applications that you can use with the GPS, gyro, etc. and I was sold. What amazed me was the fact that you can do many things at the same time without any lag due to the Quad-Core Tegra 3 microprocessor with 1GB RAM. It's just that only a few places here in Hawaii sold it. B&H came to the rescue when I saw that it was on sale and I grabbed the 4G in a heartbeat. The only thing I wished there was on this tablet was a rear facing camera just to take pictures but then again, my cellphone takes awesome pictures and it transfers easily through bluetooth to each other. It's well constructed and very sturdy. I'm still learning on what it can do and I'm doing my best to push it's limits but it still passes my expectations. It's way cheaper that the other competitor brands and it's way worth it.The reason why I didn't buy the iPad mini was beacause the iPad mini was basically an iPad2 in a smaller shell and looked like a toy for little kids. The employees at the "A" Store said that the iPad mini didn't have a great resolution as well admitted that it was an iPad2.

    I am giving this 3 stars, it would have 5 if the unit worked correctly. I must have gotten a bad unit (it happens). Even though I am having to return the unit is great thus the 3 stars
    The issue is that it will not hold a correct battery charge. I have had several issues since receiving (it has been on back order)where the unit registers 0 battery, and will not accept a charge regardless of how long its plugged up. Finally it accepted a full charge after several resets, and I was able to use the unit. Then it died in hand with 50% registering on the battery meter. So its back to B&H.......
    My original purchase was the Wifi only and I realized that this was being released in the 4g. Wifi unit I owned worked flawlessly, and loved it so much I opted to send back and exchange for the 4g version as it opens up use everywhere. The 4g unit was on BO (new product) for several weeks of which I had no tablet, and missed this unit.
    Well, got the 4g, and as stated had issues. But, with electronics things like this happen.
    Glad B&H is such a great retailer!

      Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with 4G:

      I loved my Google Nexus 7 because of its awesome storage, great feel, excellent graphics. I dont want to take photos with my tablet so the front-only camera wasn't a problem (the later version has a back camera as well). BUT THEN I was told to upgrade my system to 5.1 Lollipop, and just before that, some apps had started to misbehave - so I did - and it was a disaster. Crashes, blank screen, apps not responding, hard to turn off… eventually it got slower and slower and finally wouldn't start up. Now it's in the shop and I hope it comes back soon because I miss it.

      Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with 4G:

      This device has been a major disappointment and has proven to be faulty from the very first app download. ASUS's turnaround time for repair is at least 3 WEEKS. And they are completely unapologetic about that length of time, as well as for the faultiness of the tablet. Four thumbs down. (Boyfriend agrees!)

        By jim

        from birmingham

        Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with 4G:

        Decent tablet, but doesn't have the horsepower for Android 5.0+. It was reasonably slow before any OS updates and unacceptably slow after installing lollipop. Old hardware and new software not a good combo here. The screen is also lacking in clarity and contrast, but for the money, if you're willing to stick with kitkat, good value tablet.

            Comments about ASUS 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet with 4G:

            I bought this for my 89 year old mother. She has been using a laptop for years and just wanted to sit in her soft chair and play games or check her email. This is the right size to handhold and still see a large, sharp image. Setup was fast and easy, and I was surprised that there is a slot for a sim card. Don't recall seeing it in the specs - and don't need it now - so it may be a useful feature in the future. I have a 10" tablet now and really would consider getting this one for myself. It would be easier to handle and would allow me to take it to more places. I highly recommend it. I tested many other teablets of the same size and found this one the easiest to use and the smoothest operating tablet for this and even higher prices. Just get it!

                    I really love my new Tablet!! I have had iPads and was worried I wouldn't know how to use the android. But, it is very easy to use. And, I didn't think I would be able to read it outside, but I can. Not in direct sunlight, but in the shade is fine. The battery life is great too.

                          I bought this tablet for my wife so she wouldn't have to go to the computer room to look up a receipe on Food Network. My wife is not a technology type person and recently retired so she is pretty set in her ways, I thought why not so I bought it. At first it was Gee Thanks Dear, but now she loves it. It worked out well and was great buy.

                          Prefacing my review with the fact that I've had this device for less than two weeks so haven't experienced all of it yet. This is my first tablet, and I'm fairly simple with my computing needs, so this one has fit those needs, as well as my lifestyle, perfectly. I travel often, and often out of the country, so I don't want to pack around a laptop, of any size! It was a little glitchy at first after downloading about a dozen apps and I was instructed by Asus (who has provided great customer service, thus far) to do a factory reset, after which it seems to be running well. I was bummed when I learnt that I couldn't install Adobe Flash Player on it, because it isn't compatible with the system, but I was led to Dolphin Browser (Google Play Store) and was able to get it via that browser, which you have to use in order to access the Flash. So, everything's pretty much good to go...for the moment! All around, I'm really liking this device so far. Super-easy to use, lots of storage for lots of apps, books, and whatever else you might want on there. B&H got it to me- on an ISLAND out west- within three business days. Love these guys. And I got a free Versasleeve with it, that was offered when I ordered it. Which is also just enough of what I need. Satisfaction, indeed.

                            Primarily the Nexus 7 was purchased for reading ebooks. The screen is much easier to read than my former ereader(especially in the dark when my husband is sleeping). It will also serve as my new, up to date, navigational device and for a few specific apps which were easy to download even for someone with very limited technical ability. If I have any questions, I go to the internet with my inquiry and have found the answers within minutes. I would highly recommend this tablet.

                              This is my 2nd Nexus 7. I love this tablet.
                              1st one gave up after 3 years. I think thats great for a tablet that I use everyday. Games,shopping,movies its fantastic for all.
