Nexus 7 2013

Best 7-inch tablet

Key features:
  • 7-inch 1,920 x 1,200 pixel IPS screen
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU
  • Android 4.4
That the ancient Nexus 7 is still on our list tells you a lot about quite how good it really is. In tablet terms, this is a grandad at the very least. However, it still holds up because of its great screen, slim ’n’ smart design and that a decent processor and vanilla Android provide great performance. Even in plain benchmarks, the Nexus 7 still outperforms many budget tablets – maybe things haven’t come on quite as much as you’d guess in the last 18 months.

The only lingering issue is that tablets like the Hudl 2 offer a bit more pure hardware for a bit less cash. You’ll generally have to put up with a a few software idiosyncrasies, though, so the impatient among you may still be better off with the Nexus.

Price: £179.99
