Google finally released the Nexus 7 here in Germany and now a lot of people ask me if I can recommend it as an android gaming device. So let’s take a look under the hood of the newest device from Google. I ordered the 8GB version, because I thought that would suffice since it’s enough on my phone. Boy was I wrong, since I always used big SD cards I never realized how much space the additional data that is outsourced there takes up. In reality the 8GB version gives you 5.5 GB to install stuff and if you hit 500MB you get a warning that some services won’t sync anymore. So you have 5GB and the limit for games on the Android market is 2GB, go figure. You can’t install more than 2 or 3 big games on the device and since you will probably want to play high end Tegra games on it, you will uninstall and reinstall the games a lot. I doubt that even the 16GB Version would be big enough for daily usage for me, but at least you could install a handful of different games on it. I’ll also do this review before I root the device, because that is how most users will use their device. Root would bring additional features like the ability to use Joypads per Bluetooth or screen recording, but it can’t fix some hardware problems on the device.
