Good javascript, bad white brightness, average contrast

Not long after being presented, we have a lot of comparison reviews about hardware, performance, design, etc. between Nexus produced by Asus with other competitors in the market. There is a benchmark grade as well. According to the detailed test of Anand Tech, although using Tegra 3 chip (1.2 GHz, and 1.3 GHz when only one core is used) and graphic clocking (GPU) just reaches 416Mhz but the JavaScript benchmark score is quite impressive with the first position. SunSpider JavaScript benchmark software reveals the responsive speed of Nexus 7 is 1,665.9 milliseconds while iPad 2012 just takes the second place with 1,795 milliseconds.

In another benchmark on web-browsing speed (BrowserMark), Google Nexus takes the second place just behind ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity with 128,474 (to 129,777). Meanwhile, GLBenchmark 2.1 Egypt shows that Nexus 7 reaches 63.2 fps (lower than other 4 tablets) and iPad leads this test with 140 fps. A disappointed point on Nexus7 is the screen brightness when displaying white color. Anand ranks this tablet at the bottom of the ranking list with 312-nit brightness while ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity was ranked first with 964 nits. To compensate, the black color is doing good with the second place. In the contrast screen test, Nexus 7 is not really good when ranked in the middle. Nexus 7 has panel IPS with 400-nit brightness, 1,280x800 resolution and size of 7 inches.

Google announced that Nexus 7 would be released with 2 versions: 8GB and 16GB with the price from $199. It is known that the usable capacity of the 8GB version is 5.92 GB only, which means 2 GB is for OS and other apps. There is no memory slot while the usable capacity is just 6GB so it might be difficult to save data in Nexus 7. And the computing cloud is not available all the time.
