So far I must say that after using the tablet for a little bit yesterday and this morning I can say this... The screen is 100x better and the battery life has gotten better as well.

It's a bit easier to hold one handed as well.

Nexus 7 is out for deliver today.  Will play with it once it comes.  

 

Edit:  Dylan, ill take some side by side shots with my DSLR camera when it comes.  

 

Good, because I clearly have not mastered the art of amateur photography lol

 

Those aren't even objectively good quality pics, @dmmarck. :-P


I have the Rickets!

Listen, there are few things I do well.  Photography isn't even close to one of them lol

Also, after messing with this awesome piece of tech for the past few days, one conclusion sticks out like a sore thumb:

 

This is the best Nexus currently available.  It has the best internals, the best screen, and the latest software.  If you want a Nexus, or if you miss the Nexus (as I occasionally do, but not enough to revert to the HSPA+ stone age that is the N4), this is the device to buy.

Oh, more thoughts:

 

  • Slight slight slight panel bleed at the top.  Can be ignored easily.  Only found it looking for dead pixels (LOL)
  • Also, I finally unlocked it.
