The Nexus 7 was manufactured by ASUS for Google to brand and distribute. It is one of the powerful tablets available in the market today with Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset bearing a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz complemented by 2GB RAM. But just like any other devices, it is not free from problems and errors. In fact, in the last couple of months more users turn online to complain about their experiences with the Nexus 7.

Yes, we will be dealing with problems and errors of this tablet in this post but we just want to make it clear that this article seeks to be more helpful to Nexus 7 users rather than being critical to the device. All problems we speak of here are based on reports we read from tech communities and forums. We aggregate those problems to know which ones are most common. We then find solutions for them and that includes extensive research and conversation with experts and developers or people who have vast knowledge of the issue.

Some of the solutions, however, are based on our personal experience and know-how. We try to reproduce the problem and find solutions for it.

Now, if you have problems with your own device and want to ask questions, feel free to send us emails at [email protected] We may not be able to respond to every inquiry but rest assured we are reading every email we receive and from there we may be able to write another edition of this topic. We also launched a forum for this very purpose, so feel free to register and speak to us.
