What no Nexus 7 comments yet?

>What no Nexus 7 comments yet?

lol, well you aked for it, so here you go...

The Nexus 7 is cheaper, has a higher screen resolution(1280x800 vs 1024x600) and newer OS version (jellybean vs ICS) and a quad core processor vs dual core on the Galaxy.

For the Galaxy it has a micro SD slot so you can add an extra 32gb card, whereas the Nexus does not, this could be a siginficant feature for some.

Dont get me wrong, i like the Samsung, both it & the Nexus are great little devices, personally for me the screen resolution would probably swing it towards the Nexus.

But if you prefer the Samsung the Richer Sounds deal bobcsg noted above could save you an extra £10.

Still can't decide between this and Nexus 7! Both will work with a host usb so lack of expandable storage on the Nexus 7 isn't that much of an issue. In fact I think that has pushed me nearer to the Nexus 7.

If this was £169.99 without arsing about over the cashback with Samsung it would be a real bargain and surely make it non-viable to buy any of the cheaper Androids.

I assume host USB means you can attach a USB storage device to it - does it then work in the same card as SD card would and run applications of it and would I need to root Nexus 7 - sorry I'm more an Apple person but thinking of jumping ship due to £££s - now that my TomTom got stolen my main purpose would be to use it as a GPS device with Navigon/Tomtom software .

Running apps from sd isn't as straight forward under ics/jb as it was in 2.3.x

for running apps you use the 'internal' storage (under 2.3 there was a simple option to move an app to the SD card for apps that supported it, but not in ICS or JB as standard) however unless you have a huge array of apps installed its not likely to be a problem. For apps like navigation the data takes the majority of the space not the app itself. The SD card is more useful if you want to store a lot of music or a few movies on the device.

>>I assume host USB means you can attach a USB storage device to it

Yes, for devices that support it, a host usb cable about (£4 on ebay) allows you to plug other usb devices into the tablet, rather than the other way round. (ie connecting a device to the tablet to access, rather than accesing the tablet from another device like a computer).

So you can plug in a USB stick, or your camera, for example and access it from the tablet, to view or use it as additional storage.
Some devices also allow you to go further and plug in 3G dongles as use them on non-3g enabled devices! (im not sure if either the Nexus or Galaxy would support this (3g) though as it depends on apporopriate drivers being there)

It can be done using Super aTool Box play.google.com/sto…=en

Just so you know, the Apps2SD feature doesn't work on the GTab2 ICS even though it works on mobile phones such as my ICS GS2 :-S
I've been doing a lot of research to see if there is a fix for the lack of Apps2SD all morning, I have yet to come across anything as a guy at work is selling this quite cheap :-(

I am still not convinced that the price is at a point where tablets are going to be something everyone buy's. Yes if it had a celuular chip and could make calls or it had a real slide out keybpard and if the 10" was only weighing in at around 300g . But i am sitting here thinking i would be wasting money buying this at even £169.00 I just do not see myself using it as much as that . If i was going to fully replace a laptop yes then maybe with a slightly bigger screen , say 13" i would be happy at this price point but for a 7" device it just seems like it should be under £100, and not just by a pound.

I saw the new 10" tab2 with pen input advertised on youtube and seriously looked cool for people that are into art and drawing,but still cannot justify myself paying above £150 for it, i am not sure how much it goes for but i am sure it will be well over £200.
I am waiting, with all of the competition (and really tough competition) starting to come from China i think it will not be long before the there is a 13" for around this price point with quad core processors and amazing screens. There is a big market out there if only they could get the price of the top devices to a point where it would be an impulse buy for many people.Even a 13" screen would be usable if it was thin and not too heavy.

Ok.. time for a Daft question from a technophobe... how easy would it be to list on ebay. I`m looking for something a little easier to use for my mum and she would only be surfing the web and a bit of listing on eblag and the thought of endless phone calls I would get with a laptop just makes my teeth ache but maybe a tablet would be easier for her... Thoughts anyone??

Good idea I would think. Much less to go wrong with a tablet and you can even get an ebay app on android which would simplify the process further.

Hi I always do my listings on ebay off my phone or tablet now, samsung galaxy ace & samsung galaxy tab. quicker and easier than on the pc using the android app and you dont have to take a pic and transfer it to your c. just snap it with your phone or tablet and its there waiting.

As to the previous question of installing apps to the SD Card; there are a lot of theories out there. Some are suggesting its an ICS limitation, others think its down to the hardware makers (techies believes its an ICS thing)

There are solutions, though they are not simple. Some of the solutions are device specific. For example, there are 2 solution for the Samsung Galaxy S3 that I am aware of. One involves rooting the device and using some 'binding' software; a more interesting solution (complicated but works) is convincing the device that the internal memory is the external, and the external is the internal, so if you have a 64GB micro sd card, them that becomes the internal giving you alot more space.

As for simpler solutions, there is hope. It is believed that its just a matter of time before an app is released that will allow you to do this. Some are hoping that the makers of the android operating system will release an update restoring the feature (as found in Android 2.3) to move apps to the SD Card, but I doubt this will happen. Am sure the software makers left the option out for a reason, one which is more related to making more money.

I can't see how names like Samsung can roll out 7 inch tablets with HD screens, the latest processors etc, etc for more than a penny below £100??!! These aren't 'not for profit' organisations - materials do cost money and aren't created from fairy dust.....

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to get one of these for sub £100

pannan

hi pannan, i'm interested to know what device/android version you are doing this with, it was an option in 2.3, and some newer HTC devices, but it is not a standard option in Jelly Bean or ICS (unrooted).

Sorry to go off topic a little guys so are you telling me that you cant download and run apps to SD card natively on the top android phones, because that was one of the main reasons i would of considered upgrading from my iPhone 4 to a 16gb S3 with a 64 micro SD as i need the extra storage etc.

basically yes, without using some third party app that can sometimes do this, and then depending on the app thats being moved . But, remember were are talking apps here, not data, so if you have 8 or 16Gb worth of apps then that is a lot !!

you can put data, and your own files, movies music, whatever..., on the sd card and access them directly,

(unless you go back to gingerbread, andriod 2.3, where there was an option for this i would suggest looking on the forums on xda-developers.com for anything like this)

As pointed out by M1KEs, you can move data to the SD CARD, but cannot install apps to the SD CARD. I was a little stunned when I found this out, as it was (as you) one the key reasons I bought my daughter an S3.

Am sure its not an impossibility, just a matter of time before someone creates a simple app that allows you to do it, as there already exist ways in which to do it (someone just needs to simplify the process for us non-techies).
I know its a pain, but its really a case of just hanging on a bit more. I wouldn't let it stop you buying an S3.

The only real competitors to the S3 are the yet to be released Iphone 5 and the HTC One X+, but again, HTC seem to be going down the none external memory path of late, and as for the Iphone 5, there are many rumours of what this device may include, one things that seems consistent is that it won't have external memory.

such a shame about the resolution

and ics

Cold.
John Lewis deal for same price but 2 year warranty is significantly better.

what is the point of a tablet pc?

I'm torn between getting a nexus 7 and other tablets like this. The issue for me is the build quality of the nexus, lots of people have had issues with theirs. I'm not sure if i can be bothered sending tablets back and forth as well as hoping that it doesnt develop future problems. How easy is it to send the nexus 7 back for a replacement?

Your worried about filling 16gb of internal storage with apps!? With that many apps it will be quicker to locate what you need on the play market and download it than scroll through pages and pages of apps to find what you need. I struggle to fill 8gb with apps and I have over 4gb worth of games.

At the moment I have 5 games on mine between 1-1.4gb each so wouldn't take that much filling realy. I'm always having to delete good games just to get the next one.

How come this USB Storage Not Supported from Anandtech states external storage via OTG is not supported?

Just had a play with this in Currys........wasn't overly impressed personally!

I've just bought one from pc world. I'm impressed. God knows how I claim the cashback though. Can anyone help?

Thanks to all for the feedback to my earlier post regarding storing apps seems its not possible yet - some have said that you can store data on the memory card - does that include app data e.g. GPS maps?

Couple of weeks ago I got a 16GB iPad from work to play with and two weeks later I have ran out of memory - I want something that at least has more storage option - if Google closes it down like Apple then I'll have to look at Win 8 tablets options.

is cashback only applicable to students?

For those wondering about moving apps to SD and whether the nexus is good. ...
I have a HTC desire, Samsung galaxy note and a nexus7.

Among them the nexus7 is the best if you need lots of space for apps. The HTC desire is cramped by poor internal memory. The note although good with 16gb but the memory management is poor as only 1.9gb available for apps of which only about1.7gb its actually available where as on the16gb nexus7 even though same amount of memory as
the Samsung galaxy note but the memory management is miles better. On my note it **** bricks after about1.5gb of apps but in comparison my nexus 7is still going strong after 7gb of apps. That is the nexus7 is doing fine with about 5times the apps the Samsung galaxy note sh1ts bricks with.

Hope this helps those people wondering if the nexus7 is having enough memory for apps. My nexus 7 had at the moment about 514 apps! Midst people would not have even 10% of that. So rest assured the nexus 7 will do fine with the apps you throw at it.

If you need more memory then there are more options without rooting.... mifi, Kingston wi drive, seafarer go flex drives and portable drives or any Wi-Fi drive or use various apps on your phone for it to act as a file server for your nexus7. Our if you want to root there are various idiot guides to rooting the nexus7 after which you can install the stick mount app and can then connect via otg cable to hard drive our flash drive etc.

If you need more info about three nexus7 and Android apps then see various videos on some of the play lists on this link youtube.com/ especially see the two nexus7 play lists and car Mods play list. The sanding tablet will most likely have similar memory management like my Samsung galaxy note which is sh1t compared to the nexus 7 memory management. The nexus7 is slicker and faster with nearly five times as many apps as on my note. So physically the sane will hold true for Samsung tablets as well. Hope this helps some people make up their minds.

Plus points for the nexus7....
Great screen
great battery life even better thean my note by miles
Slick device
Stock Android so faster updates for software and latest software

Negatives. ..
No SD slot but can root if needed and then can mount flash drive or use Wi-Fi drive or mifi without rooting.

It great for carrying in your coat pocket, satnav, surfing, YouTube, Skype, games, videos.

You don't need a keyboard as TouchPal is great for typing and better than Swype. It is a waste of time buying a keyboard as I feel TouchPal app is better option
