Google Nexus 7 (2013): The Best Android Tablet Yet

Graphics testing
3DMark Performance

3DMark Ice Storm is an OpenGL ES 2.0 benchmark test that uses fixed off-screen rendering at 720p then scales the output to fit the native display resolution of your device. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests designed to stress the GPU performance of your device and a physics test to stress its CPU performance.

Google's Nexus 7 tablet took pole position in every single subsection of Futuremark's 3DMark Fire Storm test. Another impressive showing for an SoC that's clearly up to the task of gaming.

AnTuTu Android Benchmark
Subsystem level performance measurements

The Android-based AnTuTu benchmark does a nice job of measuring individual subsystem level performance for our tablet competitors here, with models for CPU, GPU, RAM and IO (or storage subsystem) performance.

When examining all the compute subsystems within the Nexus 7, there really aren't any weak points to be found. The CPU and GPU are blazing fast for this class tablet (or any mobile device, really), and RAM and I/O performance both hold their own. Google and ASUS clearly put together a tablet that will remain relevant for a long while to come.

Nice, an EC! I think I might hold off for the third-gen since nothing is holding me back that much on the original-gen, but it IS tempting the heck out of me. The performance-boost is intense.

I have one and it is a nice device. Big step up from last year's model, which I sold on eBay.

My main issue is that the GPS function works poorly. No way to use GPS in the car while tethered (why does my iPad work and my Nexus 7 doesn't!)

No micro SD card slot so I hope USB OTG works well.

For a device that has all the bells and whistles, great looks and a massive appeal to the tech-savvy, why, why, WHY leave out a microSd Card slot?? Someone please give me ONE good reason.

No reason except for maybe cost but that's a pretty weak reason.

Can you play Facebook games on it like The Price Is Right slots?
