    Wow r u kidding me????? I just bought this phone for my mom the other day and I was playing around getting it all hooked up for her and just for fun I ran it against my nexus 7 on speedtest.net and it smashed my tab on all 3 tests. Both running on a strong WiFi connect. I'm totally impressed with this phone. Aside from the screen and the cheap appearance in my opinion this things a beast. I keep asking myself what's the catch. Going to metro to cop an other for myself as a back up. This things screaming for devs to funk on. Custom recovery guys please!!!!

    whats a speedtest got to do with anything other that internet connection???

    I give the lil Motion due credit, nice lil device esp for $100, but doesnt compare against a N7 in any shape, form, or fashion!!! lol ;)

    Oh and hollar at LG for locking it down tighter than a nuns legs when it comes to slow development. ;)

    I totally agree on all fronts. I was just blown away when I ran em side by side. IMO I would give up a pinky before anything got between my n7 and I. Lol!!!! I think its the first device I've been content with at stock in my life. All being said though......definatly heading to metro to scoop up another as a back up for my esteem. Hundred dollar instant insurance plan. Can't beat it.

    He said no, he likes big screens, but I'm sure he plans on devving on it once LG or someone finds a way around the locked up bootloader.

    it and the Nexus, but I dunno if I can do it any justice with all the other Dev's they both have. lol

    but I will be doing my own AOSP builds along with CM10 builds, tho the CM10 builds will most likely just be me compiling it. ;)

    idk why they decided to only put 1g ram in the n7.

    is that the max for wee-tablets and phones these days still.

    i mean even on my computer with 8 gigs of ram running gentoo theres still almost atleast 1.5 gigs loaded after boot with a fair amount of stuff going on, normally before fully booted theres only 500ish being used.


    yes it's likely you wouldn't need more with the n7 or any tab/ phone, but why not be greedy if you have the option, 512 mb more isn't going to hurt it's weight or anything lol.


    why would you spend 250 on 16gigs 1.3ghz and 1 gig of ram.

    i guess it's just for the screen ;/

    the jump from dual to quad in the cpu's case isn't enough to reel me in, not with out atleast half a g more ram, maybe a full one if they really wanted to make me want to buy it.

    what's the manufactures price on providing ram for the mb's on these phones/tabs, obviously it's built in on the motherboard, but really it cant be that much more expensive, didn't asus build the n7? this asus notebook i'm using now was like 750$ it has a frikken intel i7-2670QM (4 cores, 8 logical processors) +8gigs ram and 680 gig hard-drive. (not to mention a little geforce GT 540m)

    so that leads me to believe it wasn't them who made the choice on hardware to price ratios.

    actually, i suppose if you scale the n7 up to spec you might get really close to the pricing on this notebook, besides internal storage obviously


    maybe it is a good deal ;/

    compare the N7 to any other 7" tablet out, its def a deal @ $199 & $249, and most def the best 7" tab out.

    embedded tech cost more than component tech like laptops n PC's. Only device out with 2GB or RAM is the S3 and some are saying thats too much lol.

    I think Google/Asus did a nice job with the Nexus 7, need to tighten up on QC tho. ;)
