The ASUS built Google Nexus 7 is what experts call a true budget tablet. Google Nexus 7 has tech specs that are actually better than most of the high end tablets, while not compromising over the build quality at all. And now that we have another set of benchmarks, Nexus 7 just got another category where it puts other high end Android devices to shame.
If you have already experimented with your Nexus 7 (rooted) then it is almost impossible for you to not be familiar with the Trinity Kernel, which has quickly become one of the favorite software mods for devs.
You might be surprised to know that Nexus 7 in spite of being a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core beast and having an unbelievably high 1.64GHz clock speed, manages to score over 7000 while still maintaining a decent battery life.
In case you don’t remember, then here is a quick recap of Nexus 7 tech specs. Nexus 7 features a 7 inch 800 x 1280 pixels display, 1GB of RAM, a 1.2MP camera for video calling, Android v4.1 Jelly Bean and as mentioned earlier, the Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-core Cortex-A9 processor.
In the screenshot on the right, it’s noticeable that Nexus 7′s benchmarks easily put devices like HTC One X, ASUS Transformer Prime, Motorola ATRIX 4G, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and many more high end Android tablets and smartphones to shame.
So what do these numbers tell you about the Nexus 7? Well the answer is, they are nothing more than numbers, unless of course you are a benchmark junky. The main reason for that is because benchmarks don’t take factors like enhanced UI and real world speeds into account. Or if told in a nutshell, the benchmarks are not even close to what Nexus 7 or even any of the above mentioned devices are out in the wild.
Anyhow, most of the people will agree that Nexus 7 itself is a great device for $200 and doesn’t need any benchmark tests to prove it.
