Google recently updated its popular Nexus 7 tablet, bringing welcome upgrades to display, performance, and features while keeping wallet-friendly pricing.

The refreshed 2013 edition makes a strong value play for Android fans wanting a portable yet powerful small tablet.

Sporting a slim, no-frills design, the svelte second-gen Nexus 7 impresses out of the box. It sheds weight and thickness over its predecessor while featuring sturdy plastic construction with grippy backing.

Google and Asus finessed the form by shrinking side bezels, better optimizing one-handed use. Landscape mode particularly benefits from balanced front bezels.

Visuals take a quantum leap thanks to a drool-worthy 7-inch 1080p screen. The super-crisp 323 ppi density pulls everything into sharp focus, lending unprecedented clarity to apps, videos, games, and web pages.

Even small text dazzles. Vibrant images also stun thanks to excellent contrast and color accuracy.

Matching the brilliant display is equally fluid speed from a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

Though not cutting-edge, the nimble 1.5GHz quad-core chip laughs at demanding tasks like HD gaming. Impressively optimized software earns praise too.

The clean Android 4.3 build and 2GB of RAM translate to seamless daily use free of lag.

Google packs in several other crowd-pleasers as well. Stereo speakers crank loud, relatively rich audio for gaming and video.

Long battery life keeps you powered through a full day of active use. Wireless charging support offers added convenience for power users.

Alas, a few flaws nag. Mediocre cameras bring blurry, dull shots. Some speaker distortion also creeps in at lower volumes. Lack of microSD and a sealed battery may disappoint hardware tinkerers.

But these prove minor gripes given the entry-level configuration’s thoughtful design and downright dazzling display.

For those craving a portable slate equally suited to reading ebooks or Netflix, the 2013 Nexus 7 retains Google’s mojo. It brings meaningful improvements absent from many rivals, cementing its stature as the small tablet to beat.
