    Loving my Nexus 7, although it does seem to get drowned quite easily and become incredibly slow. Clearing the running apps doesn't seem to help either? Also a bit concerned about the battery, I reckon I'm only geting about 3-5 hours but I'm willing to chalk that up as new toy overuse before it becomes a real worry.

    Gutted that I bought a Nexus 7 Griffin case from HMV (as it was half price). Made specifically for the N7 apparently. Problem is, it completely covers the lock/power button, partly covers the volume and completely covers the headphone jack. Who the fuck checks these things? Don't have the heart to return it considering how depressed everyone looked in the store. Managed to mod the case with some magnets to take advantage of the auto unlock, but the volume slider and headphone jack is still useless.

    Take it back and get a refund on the case. Then out the money towards a poetic case on Amazon. Better in every way.

    Was that aimed at me? Actually it only says "charged" on the lock screen if its switched on. I know it sounded stupid, but I wanted to make sure to maximise the battery life by charging it properly the first time. On apple devices the charge symbol changes to tell you its done even when the device is off.

    I use Battery Bot Pro shows percentage of battery life left as a number top left of screen, and when you pull down the top draw quickly tells you how much life is left in terms of hours etc.

    Has anyone bought a cheap unofficial Nexus 7 dock anywhere? I was tempted to get the official one, but I still think 25 is a bit steep.

    My Nexus 7 screen is craked and no longer responds. I'm fucking gutted, and angry at how fucking easily it happened. Is there anything I can do? A quick google shows up awful CS by ASUS and insane costs for replacement.

    Has the glass cracked or the screen? If its the latter, you may as well chuck it in the bin.

    Yep, I cracked one last year, had to buy a new one as it cost near enough the same to get it repaired. I use the old one with a mouse now and the missus has the new one.

    The funniest part though (for me) was that I cracked it the same way I did my Archos 10.1, I dropped it 30cm onto my bed. Not a hard surface, but the double down duvet of my bed! :D WTF?!

    Thought as much. Fucking fuck. It's less than a month old.

    Will any old mini usb to usb adapter work, the screen is still legible but it doesn't recognise touches at all.

    How did you crack it? Did you sit on it or was it the sausage fingers?

    I don't know which I'd prefer.

    Yeah works fine with any USB host adaptor, but you lose quite a bit of functionality as, obviously, multi-touch doesn't work any more. I rarely use it these days, I tend to nick the missus' Apple tablet.

    Anyone know if the Nexus 7 is due an upgrade anytime soon? I'm about to take the plunge but suddenly have the fear that it'll get an update next month...

    Wierd. I know an ipad mini is not a nexus, but they both do the same things. Once i got my ipad mini, i ran out of reasons to really use my S3. I currently use it in the gym, or on the loo at work and thats it. All other times i much prefer the larger tablet

    A big part of it is because I'm in my flat I'm always in close proximity to my computer, so I don't need it for around the house browsing. Out and about I always have my phone but it takes a special effort to take my Nexus out with me.

    At the minute I basically use the Nexus as a comics reader (no bad thing as that was its intended purpose anyway) and a second screen when playing older steam games that don't do well with the interface.

    Although after putting Perfect Viewer on my S3, the AMOLED screen makes comics look mighty purdy...

    July? That's annoying. I could easily wait until May, I could stretch to June, but July is AGGGGESSS away.

    I want a new toy!

    I doubt it would be leagues ahead of the current Nexus 7 anyway. Plus no doubt with Google's track record of actually getting shit into your hands, they will be out of stock until September.

    Got myself an OTG USB cable for my Nexus, plugged in my PS3 controller and it just works. No rooting or fuck acting about with the device at all.

    Shadowgun is excellent with it. Haven't tried it with anything else yet mind.

    That sounds good, is it really that easy?

    I would be tempted to actually game on it if I had a controller. Touchscreens and tilt are utter bollocks.
