Staples Magic Easy Button and Nexus 7 Review

staples google nexus 7 review

I am in the thick of moving.   Today I can say that I have about 85% of our belongings packed away and ready for moving day.  It is amazing to me how much stuff we were able to store in our tiny 961 square foot home.   Now one of the things that made my packing a little easier is the Nexus 7 tablet that Staples sent me to review.

Also, that easy button made for some fun times distracting the Little while I was in the midst of packing up 10 years of living.  He was hitting that thing like he was playing a champion game of whack a mole.  I wasn’t surprised that in my dream that night the background soundtrack was someone repeating “That was easy.”

But back to the Nexus 7  32 GB which can be summed up in one word:  AWESOME.  I’m seriously  in love with the tablet and having a hard time from keeping Mr. Bejelly from hogging it.

It’s fast, light weight and loaded with apps such as Gmail, Youtube, Chrome and more.  You also download more via the app store.    The 7″ display is 1280-by-800 high-resolution  and the battery life lasts forever – over 9 hours of s of HD video playback, 10 hours of web browsing, 10 hours of reading and up to 300 hours of stand-by time.  Also, you can not beat that it comes with 32GB of memory.    I’m pretty sure this is more memory than my first computer, lol.

The very first thing I did on the Nexus 7 was Skype with my parents.  Most of my family lives in Arizona so I am usually burning up the internet tubes chatting with them.   The quality of the picture and sound during our chat was so much better on the Nexus than on my laptop.   My mother told me she could see my pores, not sure if that is a good thing or not,  but I will only be Skyping on the tablet from now on.

My only two issues with the tablet are the shiny screen which makes it hard to see in the sunshine and that the screen surface turns into a fingerprint screensaver after a few hours.   Besides these two issues, this tablet is a must have in my book.

The Nexus 7 32 GB retails for $249.99 from Staples.   You can also grab your own Staples Easy Button for $5.99.   Don’t forget to follow Staples on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about their products and deals.

    My husband bought one of these for himself in November. He really likes it too. The only thing that annoys him is that some of the Android apps aren’t compatible with it (or so the app description says) and that a lot of the apps he has crash a lot. For the price of it though, it definitely is a great little tech gadget.

    I love my tablet. 7″ would be a great size to stick in a purse (and then use while waiting for appointments or in the carpool line).

    My girls love my “easy” button and push it all the time. That looks like a great tablet. I’ve never really tried anything other than an iPad because we’re an Apple family.

    ughhhhhhhh we are moving too. It sucks!!!!! We get our keys on Monday and I so wish I had an Easy Button since I’ll be trying to move everything by myself with the 2 1/2 year old with the hubby at work.

    I’ve got the same Nexus and love it too! I just bought a screen protector that is matte instead of glossy helping to hold down on the glare and fingerprints!
    Bought it from Amazon, pack of 3 made especially for Nexus 7.
