ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet (7-Inch, 32GB) 2012 Model (Certified Refurbished)

Google Nexus 7 is a not so powerful Android tablet released back in the year 2012, packed with a good performance 1300 MHz Quad-Core processor, a 1.2 MP front camera and a good size 7" screen.

The Google Nexus 7 feels a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 11.99 ounces. The Google Nexus 7's thickness , 0.41", is a little bit far from today's standards, but it still feels quite comfortable in the user's hand.

The Google Nexus 7 includes a good looking 7 inches display with a 800 x 1280 resolution, which makes everything look very good. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The Google Nexus 7 is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L chip, holding a powerful Quad-Core CPU running at 1.3 gigahertz and 1 GB RAM memory. To collaborate with graphic rendering, it also counts with a ULP GeForce graphic processing unit ticking at 416 MHz. This tablet comes with a 32 GB amazing internal storage memory and even though it doesn't come with an external memory card slot, it it is more than enough to install lots of apps, games, pictures and videos without thinking about filling it.

The Google Nexus 7 has Wi-Fi capability (although it can't share it with other devices as a mobile mobile hotspot), 4G HSPA+ connection type, which is not as fast as LTE or LTE-A 4G networks or 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device works with a SIM card for GSM networks.

The Google Nexus 7 has only a 1.2 MP front facing camera.

The Google Nexus 7 also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (3.0), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet uses a 4325 mAh great Li-Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide the Google Nexus 7 with an amazing battery life. An issue to take into account is that the Google Nexus 7's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to lose capacity, though with so much capacity you will probably discard this tablet before that becomes an issue.

The Google Nexus 7 is being sold for only $ 110, which is rather cheap for comparing with other similar devices. It doesn't matter whether you will use this device for work or are looking for a gamer tablet, this tablet is the correct option for you.
