You should be able to upgrade your 2012 Nexus 7 to 4.3 (I have). Can you make a comparison of the two tablets running 4.3?

Yeah sure. I think I'm going to do a factory reset of the old N7 (8GB version with slow memory) just to make it completely fair. Then I'll do some side by side stuff with them.

I don't think its going to be much contest though. Multitasking on the new model is just so much better. Today I was syncing my Google music collection to the new device and the UI, task switching, etc stayed fluid. Even brand new the old N7 would start to lag if I downloaded a lot in the background, i guess due to the slow memory. For single task use like Chrome, I bet the difference isn't nearly so big though.

I did some benchmarks tonight and theres basically no difference that I can see. Haven't done a full wipe though.

Subjectively it feels a little faster.

I'm confused: did your benchmarks show similar numbers between the 2012 and the 2013 editions of the Nexus 7? That doesn't sound right.

Sorry I misunderstood. I upgraded the 2012 tablet to 4.3 but it didn't really change any of the benchmarks.

Would you mind measuring the output impedance of the 2013 Nexus 7? RMAA results would be nice too, though I don't expect them to be audibly bad.

Something is up with the 2013 Nexus 7ís GPS

Quote:
PhoneArena has spotted reports from users complaining that the GPS in the new tablet becomes non-functional after a period of sustained use, and only rebooting the tablet will bring the GPS sensor back from the dead.

So I got one of these today, the first day of its being available here, switched it on, and it updated the system plus about 15 of the core Google apps - Maps, Chrome etc.

It's really nice - the screen is better than that of my Xperia Z.





Not quite as high a benchmark as the Xperia Z and just above the Xperia SP:
