Time to refresh the Nexus 7 with a new model and new specifications. Asus is still producing the device, receiving a serious speed boost, a better quality display, a rear camera and new features. At $220 the new Nexus 7 presents itself as a remarkably attractive proposition for people who want to read, watch or play.

The 2013 Google Nexus 7 is more expensive than the original and sees only a small change in the design, while its exceptional screen and added rear camera help justify this price hike. It's still lacking a microSD card slot but for many people with be the best 7in tablet around.

The Nexus 7 2 is better in almost every single way than its predecessor. It’s slicker, faster and sleeker than any other 7-inch tablet on the market right now, and only the rear facing camera lets it down. At £199 it’s also a little pricier, but well worth the extra pennies.
