Since the ASUS Google Nexus 7 appeared on the scene, competitors in the 7-inch class have had a much more difficult time of it.  Many a nerd has turned coat on the competition and now favor the better-equipped Nexus 7. There’s so much buzz about the Nexus that other tablets are getting lost in the fray. Mr Ritchie from Australia has now ventured to make a meaningful comparison between the Nexus 7 and one of its competitors, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

The device is Samsung’s cheapest tablet, and has only two cores, a CPU from Texas Instruments that clocks  a little low in comparison and a lower resolution. Samsung’s tablet has more memory, a camera to offer on the back and a microSD card slot to sweeten the deal though. The Nexus 7 has the advantage with the Tegra 3 quad core and the 1024×600 resolution as well as with the price. The 8GB model of the Nexus is under $200 while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is closer to $300.  Ultimately, Google’s tablet is superior to the Samsung model in many respects, not least because of the expected updates, but how exactly do the two competitors look in a direct comparison? The answer is found in the following video:

    The Nexus 7 is a looser due to the numerous screen issues as well as build quality. Samsung makes a better product than ASUS. It’s just that simple.

    TouchWiz is crap… Any overlay over stock is crap and bloatware, so Nexus always wins.

    Is that so important? Just install another Launcher you like. Makes more sense to compare which hardware is better suited for you.
