Google Nexus 7 Tablet

INTRODUCTION:

I’m here with my review of the Google Nexus 7 Tablet. This tablet is actually made by Asus but they combined together with Google to give it the Nexus brand name. It’s running Android 4.1 Jellybean, the latest version of the Android operating system. All this comes in a 7 inch form factor. I’m going to take a look to see why this tablet ranks among the best tablets out there on the market right now. But first I’m going to start with the design and the hardware.

Now, looking at the Nexus 7 it’s not going to jump out at you – it’s not one of these devices that’s designed to catch your eye. But it is designed to really allow for one handed function of a tablet. It only weighs around 340 grams. You can really use this thing with one single hand. On the back is a very nice rubber type of feel which allows you to get a really nice firm grip on the tablet itself. And on down the backside you’ll find the speaker grill, and also on the very bottom a headphone jack, and also a microUSB port. Now on the right hand side you will find the volume rocker and right above that the power button. Then on the front at the very top you will find the 1.2 megapixel front facing camera. This tablet does not feature so if you’re going to be taking and pictures of videos you’re going to need to use the front facing camera. Now this screen is a seven inch screen with a resolution of 1280 by 800. It also has 216 pixels per inch (ppi). Now compare with the current Ipad’s ppi which is 264, you will definitely see that this display isn’t the best display out there on the tablet market. I didn’t have any glaring problems with it. It was just fine for gaming, reading books, or anything like that. I really had no problems with the screen at all.

SUMMARY:

Hardware:
Quad-core Tegra 3 CPU

12 core GPU

1 GB RAM

8 or 16 GB Memory

4325 mAh Battery (9 hours of video playback, 10 hours of reading, 10 hours of web browsing and 300 hours of stand by time. Personal experience: several days without giving it a full charge)

Software:

Android 4.1 Jellybean

New Google Voice Asssistant

Gaming play without problems. No frame breaks or stutter.

Evaluation:

For the money, a very good value. Compares well with tablets in its price range and even a couple hundred dollar higher. Plus, the one-handed use. Only negative: improve camera, a rear-facing camera would be nice.

The Nikon D5300 Reviews From opClarity

Part of opClarity includes reviews for specific products. Sometimes these products are unique to specific stores sometimes they are not. If we have multiple stores that sell a specific product we will try and review each of them. For the Nikon, those who purchase already know that it is top of the line. So generally we just want to give our readers what we do best. Some good text based synopsis. Check back here for more updates with our own reviews and signed videos as well. Rock on!


Video Synopsis & Transcription

Nikon D5300 vs D3300 – 5 Key Differences (0:36) In terms of body design they’re quite similar. They both come in three different colors, buttons and dials, kind of the same. But when we look at the screen D5300 has a bigger screen. 3.2 inches versus 3 inches. One million dots, 900K dots. Well the D3300 has actually got the bigger viewfinder. .85 times magnification over .82. Not really a big difference, though. The real biggie: the 5300 has this (flips out screen). What’s so good about a tilty screen? It’s so you can take good selfies. Cropping out unnecessary stuff that clutters up you frame. Shop logos, rubbish, your friends. Not that easy with a D3300 fixed screen.

In use, the autofocus modes are quite similar. Face detection, contrast detect, forward sensor, continuous tracking, multi-area, selective single point, single point, face detection, live view, continuous, tracking. But there is a difference. The D5300’s points arrange in a fashion that just happens to cover the whole goal but the D3300 has plenty of gaps everywhere, just like the Man United defense. More points, more choice. Either picked by you of if you’re letting the camera do the picking. Better for tacking finer movements. Both of them have wi-fi capability, but not straight out of the box.

The The D5300 has it straight out of the box. The D3300 has it not so straight out of the box. You have to add it on. You have to open the flap and putting the module in. And you can’t close the flap. Also the D5300 has GPS. The D5300 is a more elegantly connected camera for social media savvy people. Also with the wifi ready D5300 you can take photos by yourself of yourself. Both cameras have a graphical user interface and they also have effects and raw processing within the camera. But there are differences. They’ve both got the same filters. But the D3300 has “easy panorama.” The D5300 doesn’t have panorama. In terms of video performance, they both offer the same frame rates. The only difference is that the D5300 has a built in stereo mic. The D3300, only mono. They look similar, they feel similar and shoot quite similar. There are subtle differences that set them apart slightly. The D3300 is a stripped down, good enough for photos and video version. It’s for people who don’t care about having that slight extra ability or integrated wi-fi capability. The D5300 is just that little bit step further into the photography enthusiast side.
