I am trying to decide between the two also, the nexus has higher resolution and quicker updates and better cpu, but the Samsung has USB OTG and a rear camera and touchwiz

I cant pick between the two !!

Im looking at buying one of these or the nexus 7.

I have viewed them side by side and seem to think the screen looks clearer and brighter on the samsung.

But I'm also undecided

this has expandable memory with the nexus does not, thats a plus!

The nexus is technically better.... But the Samsung is more than capable, for me it's the Samsung as sd essential... Clouds are all well and good via a decent wifi connection which also happens to be the time when you don't really need them

As this is only 8GB the fact it has a MicroSD slot is better than the nexus without

the Nexus has OTG? Using a 32GB Lexar class 10 in an adapter for movies and emu roms

The Nexus 7 will get all the new android releases within weeks of the official release whereas you'll be waiting months (if not forever) for Samsung to even decide if they're going to update it or not
The Nexus S is getting JellyBean whereas it's sister Samsung phone (Galaxy S) didn't even get ICS!

if the memory of the nexus 7 isn't a problem, then definitely buy the nexus 7. have a play around with it if you already haven't. its a great device, specially with jelly bean.

Not sure if it's hot...a deal maybe

im waiting for a decent 7 with 3g compatability!

Well then they'll be stuck with 8GB for apps then.

Rooting and a custom rom is a must for low storage devices like this.
The Nexus just about has enough.

and tethering to your smart phone is hard?

Does this have hdmi out?

Nexus7 is only wifi... but GT7 has 3G and can also be used as a phone if u wish to... you can root it and have any of the custom roms available on XDA to make it up to date....did the same on my original Galaxy Tab(1st Gen)

unfortunatly need the p3100 for that and its hellaspensive!

Love the little things the nexus dose, like when u shut the case it turns the nexus of and when u open the case it turns it on

u can use the nexus as a phone if u wish, just need an app for phone to tablet

Just order from John Lewis... you get 2 years warranty and you can still claim the £30 back.

Decent but for same price £169.99 (albeit no quidco) I'd buy from John Lewis as they give you a 2 year warranty & better after sales support.

Playbook is crap and is a rip-off even at this price... you will regret if you decide to keep it..

I would buy it from JL with 2yr guarantee + 30 sammy cashback...

I have used very before, IMO they are great!

Yeah and according to Samsung's T&Cs all UK retailers qualify for cashback claims. So this can be got for £150!

Wait for a Nexus deal with a voucher code and get a 16gig nexus 7. Lower res, worse processor, worse software and support on this compared to the Nexus. Also the Nexus has the really nice feeling back on it, it's the only tablet/phone I've ever held that actually feels nice rather than it's gonna fall outta your hand.
Edited by: "Jimmyray" 2nd Aug 2012

PERSONALLY am waiting for the nexus but daughter wants one and if you could get the very code£30 off plus sammy deal and quidco would make quite a bit of saving.##
may give very a call and cancel nexus and see if i can transfer code , as am sure once the nexus is back in stock everywhere then other vouchers may popup ....
