Google Nexus 7 Release Date Nears, Has a Faulty Display, ASUS Responds

Google Nexus 7 Release Date Nears, Has a Faulty Display, ASUS Responds google nexus 7 tablet by asus e1340892791125 250x300Google Nexus 7 release date still has some more weeks but the ASUS built Google Nexus 7 is already seeing complaints regarding its screen.

According to AndroidPolice, they got hold of a Google Nexus 7 Tablet whose screen was subjected to some serious image retention problem.


Or, if explained in more simple words, the image of the previous screen was left on the next screen for almost 2 minutes on the display of Google Nexus 7.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Has A Faulty Screen?

A similar problem was noticed by AndroidPolice on at least two of the Google Nexus 7 tablets at Google I/O. The worst thing about this problem is that it takes several minutes for the imprint to fade away, even when switching between apps and home screens. The intensity of the imprint varies with the color that’s being displayed but the stock wallpaper just makes it even more noticeable.

AndroidPolice has received a response from ASUS which said they are unable to see the same problem in the production units of Google Nexus 7 Tablets (I/O units are pre-production units). So this display problem might only be in the first few units of Google Nexus 7.

Google Nexus 7 boasts its Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9 processor complemented with 1GB RAM making it an ideal device to do some heavy multitasking. As by its name, Google Nexus 7 features a 7 inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen making it a perfect choice for watching HD movies on its resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. However, Google Nexus 7 has some downsides too for instance Google Nexus 7 has only a 1.2 MP front camera for video chatting; no rear camera, no microSD card slot, no cellular connectivity( available in WiFi only models) and Galaxy Nexus comes with only8/16 GB of internal storage.

Even though we were not expecting an Apple like screen quality from Google Nexus 7 Tablets for a budget of only $200, I personally will never put my money on a tablet which has a faulty display as this one.

    “Google Nexus 7 is already seeing complaints regarding its screen”

    Yeah ok, because they’ve released so many nexus 7 tablets already. The only ones who got tablets were stupid google I/O attendants and they got the tablets before they were completely finished.

      Well Phil it definitely sounds like this is written by someone who loves Ipads a little to much

    Then you are stupid as fuck then, it’s google. If there’s something wrong, they will fix it.

    I second and third the above comments. How likely is it that this issue is going to exist on any other tablets? I haven’t seen any other complaints from other people, and the title is extremely misleading.

    On a side note, other articles on this site seem to favor Apple a little more than Google. I’m voting they are all fanboys of Crapple.

      @Anon
      He’s talking about how the the public didn’t expect the Google Nexus to have the same screen quality as the Apple iPad, not that the screen was made by Apple. If it said the opposite like “Even though we were not expecting a Nexus like screen quality from Apple iPad tablets”, I bet you’d agree without hesitation. But guess what? Google doesn’t make it’s own displays, this tablet is manufactured by Asus!
      By the way, putting an “i” in front of an unpleasant word makes you look like an android fanboy, unless that’s what you’re aiming for…

    meh, you’re just an apple fanboy. you’re a total douchebag and you should stop writing shit like this. I hope you know why everyone here hates you.

    God I hope not, my kindle fire suffered from this, I would play solitare all the time and when I would quit the game to do something else. I could still see the cards in the back of the screen sometimes for 30+ minutes. After a while I just got used to it and didn’t notice it as much anymore. I trust google with my money though.

    “I personally will never put my money on a tablet which has a faulty display as this one.”

    Uh – according to your own article, it’s questionable whether the Nexus 7 has any display problems at all. Sounds to me like you’re just fishing for bad things to say and, coming up empty, are being forced to manufacture them.
