I was hoping for a good speaker - bummer
« on: July 29, 2012, 06:38:43 AM »
Do a Google Search on Nexus 7 speaker quality .  .  the reviews describe it as worst-in-class for a tablet.

I am all Android, but my wife has an iPad and the speaker is really good.     

I was ready to order a Nexus 7 because of its smaller size and the Android platform, but if they completely blew-off speaker quality, I guess not.

The 7" form factor isn't a good excuse.  I have a retired Nokia 5410 phone that has half the size of any smart phone and it plays music better than ANY Android phone.

How much can a speaker that sounds like an iPad speaker cost ?  .... just do it . . I really wanted a smaller Android tablet.

I think the speaker on my iPad2 is no different than the N7. My iPhone4 has a better speaker but I think they all have basic sound quality. Use ear buds and you will hear a huge difference. Don't rely on the device's speakers.

Use headphones or a compact bluetooth speaker.  OK, I know, that's just another piece of gear, but for an add-on to an extremely inexpensive tablet, what the hey.

Yeah the N7 has a great speaker for being a tablet in general so not sure what your reading but its the same or better than an iPads.

I wish the speakers faced forward. Otherwise, I think they're fine.
