Despite the claim that Google's Nexus 7 tablet has beefier specs then the iPad mini, it must come as some what of a shock and a big embarrassment that the iPad mini not only smokes the Nexus 7 in performance, but it smokes it even when running Google's own apps!
At least that is the claim made in this post, but what has got to be even more embarrassing for the search giant is the report that its premium tablet, the Nexus 7, the one tablet that many claimed not only was equal, but even superior to Apple's own, is now apparently dying much, much too soon!
According to this report, the Nexus 7is now causing quite an uproar among many of its early adopters who are complaining that the device is apparently already beginning to fail, and experiencing frustrating lag and frequent periods of unresponsiveness.
According to Dustin Early, writing for AndroidAndMe:
"I can’t find one person who has been using the Nexus 7 for an extended period of time, and hasn’t seen a massive downgrade in performance,"
"One year later, the Nexus 7 has gone from the best to worst tablet I’ve ever owned."
Wow, that's almost as embarrassing as Microsoft desperately paying developers to actually write apps for its Windows phones, and, most likely, Windows 8 tablets, as well for all I know!
Considering the above reports, it's no wonder even a long time Android tablet user would end up praising the iPad over his own preferred brand. As Russell Holly, for Geek.com, wrote:
I got the same questions over and over again when I announced to my friends that I was getting an iPad mini. What about the (non-Retina) screen? What about the decreased specs? It’s so much less than the Nexus 7 on paper, how could you justify spending more for it? In fact, I found that the iPad mini outperformed the Nexus 7 in every real world test I could find. Even apps that were demonstrated as shining examples of the power inside the Nexus 7, like Dead Trigger, play better on the mini. Apps load faster, websites load at about the same speed, and unless you are holding the tablets three feet from your face there’s not a whole lot of difference between the two displays. The quality of the screen, meaning the tone of colors, how bright the screen gets… is all Apple. Asus’s screen doesn’t come close.
In conclusion, apparently the old adage, "you get what you pay for" may be a put down, but apparently it still holds true!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this beautiful Wednesday morning, June 19, 2013
