It appears that the Nexus 7 2 is having the same fate as its predecessor, that had some initial bugs when it shipped to the general public. Users are already finding issues related to the new slate and they’re detailed below.


The Nexus 7 2013 tablet is having erratic touchscreen issues and keyboard issues, if we judge by the Google Products Forum complaints. Also, the GPS navigational feature is not exactly working flawlessly. It has been reported that the GPS signal will simply stop working within 2 minutes after it has been turned on. Google is planning on rolling out a fix, but some Nexus 7 owners have already received replacement units.

Strangely, one of the persons who got the replacement unit is claiming that the replacement device itself has some annoyances of its own, like a touchscreen problem. Double taps, ghost taps and erratic glass behaviour are quoted. As usual, we can take these with a grain of salt, since we know how easy it is to fake reports.

    Yup I’m having early adopter issues, with my Nexus 7 FHD, touch screen won’t respond at times, tried the usual suspects, after updates, factory reset, power down (reboot,) but reboot issues with WiFi, launcher etc. Still early days, only been on the market, for what 3 weeks, got mine from B+H photo, took them 2 weeks to ship it, the shipping company didn’t tell me the right day when it would arrive, had to pick it up at the post office. Good at movies, but hardly any 1080p content for android, both my movies 720p, but very true undegraded 720p Cinerama. Got the 32 GB version again, worried that if I ever got some 1080p content to own at a reasonable price, at 3GB each, they’d take up too much space, the new Total Recall cost $13 Australian 720p Cinerama on a bargain. Had 2001 720p Cinerama before same price, so far both have only taken up 3.2 GB for about 4 hours.
