Overall and Final Verdict
At the end of the day I’m a little torn. The New”ish” Nexus 2013 is without a doubt a big step up from the previous model. The only exception to this was in the CPU testing where the results were hit and miss. You get a rear facing camera, better gaming performance, wireless charging, twice the RAM, and a higher resolution screen, all in a thinner design. The problem for me is as good as this is compared to the last Nexus 7, when compared to devices I have tested in the past year the numbers are less impressive. Sadly Verizon didn’t get the Nexus 7 2013 until a little late in its lifespan (7 months in). On the plus side of things, I would still highly recommend traveling with an LTE enabled tablet whether it is the Nexus 7 or one of the other devices that Verizon offers.
