How To Root & Install Recovery in Nexus 7 2 (2013) FLO

nexus-7-2013

 

The original Google Nexus 7 by Asus really kickstarted the market for the mini tablet, and was launched well before Apple’s iPad mini, pitting it against the Kindle Fire. With this second generation, Google has really declared war on the iPad mini – and with a screen that’s the highest resolution in its class.

While Apple reportedly struggles to make a mini with a Retina display, Google and Asus have unleashed the new Nexus 7 2 with a jaw-dropping 1920×1200 display such to turn Apple green with envy.

In fact, it’s not just the screen that’s had a major upgrade. Gone is the slightly tacky rubber back, replaced with a much smoother, grippy rear surface and new, sleek black lines that make this look, well, cool – something unheard of in the Android tablet market until now.

The Nexus 7 is, without doubt, the best non-Apple tablet on the market. The speed, screen and attention to detail make it head and shoulders above the rest, and nipping at Apple in terms of design and feel.

It’s easy to use and hold in one hand, and thanks to the placement of the speakers, also an excellent portable media viewer, managing to eclipse even the Kindle Fire HD and the bedtime tablet of choice (and much more portable than the iPad 4, Apple’s big boy tablet which has a comparable Retina screen).

For owners of the original Nexus, this is also worth a look – it’s a complete overhaul rather than an upgrade, and one look at the gorgeous screen in action will have you rushing to Google’s site to order.
