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