Hello, I was looking to buy a 7" Android tablet. Can you guys tell me which is the best one? I was conflicted between the Nexus and Galaxy. 

Or if there is any other one.

the new Nexus 7 is hands down the current best 7" tablet on the market right now (by both price & specs at that)

Thanks guys!

 

NP.  The N17 2013 is a great tablet.  Best resolution you will get currently on that size tab.  Easy as hell to root as well and I applied the Clean ROM to it.  Clean ROM is as close to stock as possible and it is smooth.

The only objection I have to the Nexus tabs is the lack of a memory card slot. Since it's made by Asus and others of that brand have them....

I'm well aware of the love for the Nexus tablets, but I've had a Samsung Galaxy Tab II for about 8 months and I'm very pleased with it, something else you might look in to.

i have a 7" galaxy tab II and a first gen Nexus 7; and the quality difference between the two would actually surprise you. the nexus 7 (both first & second gen) are a lot higher quality over the galaxy tab II (especially with the screen)

Yep the 2013 Nexus 7 is hands down the best 7" tablet out there right now.

Hello,

The Nexus 7 is so dominating the tablet section it is almost scary....

I also suggest the 2013 N7.

 

The only objection I have to the Nexus tabs is the lack of a memory card slot. Since it's made by Asus and others of that brand have them....

USB OTG? Granted it wouldn't travel as well as a tucked away SD card, but if you buy a 32 or 64 GB version you surely have at least close to enough storage I'd think and you can plug in the USB OTG+USB drive for extra stuff you may need.

 

Just depends on what you need it for an what space you need. I'm replacing my head unit in my car with a N7 so I got the 8GB version and am just gonna plug in a 64 GB USB drive, but that will be mounted and never moving so that works great for my situation.
