Google Nexus 7: White vs Black

by birtanpublished on May 27, 2021

Hey guys Mike here the Detroit Board with a look at the white Nexus 7 this will be a quick video because I've already done a review of the Nexus 7 and I'll post that link in the description below but this is available in 32 gig capacity only does not have a 16 gig capacity so this retails for 269 there's also no cellular version right now it's not clear this is a limited edition model that will disappear like the white Nexus 4 about time will tell so let's go take a look at this as you can see we have the whites back panel while the front remains black so I'm just gonna push this through just laying it right

Out and we're gonna go ahead and cut these tabs here and go ahead and lift the lid and as you can see pretty much looks like a black Nexus 7 until you take a look at the back and there we go we have a white back panel we're gonna set that aside for just a minute while we clear the accessories out of the way so we have our paperwork pretty standard stuff in multiple languages tells us about the fact that has NFC and wireless charging what actually doesn't say that but it does it has a volume rocker volume rocker our power button warranty and CP information and we have more

Stuff in other languages and pretty much the same stuff we're familiar with we do have a micro USB charging cable as well as the standard yeah Nexus 7 wall adapter with a seuss branding so the wrapper shows off some of the ports and Bunz power volume as well as our USB port and if we look on the back you can see our white Nexus branded back panel you can also see that the buttons also match with the white panel so that's nice now let's go ahead and peel off the plastic envelope just slide right out there we go now if you bring in the Black Nexus

Again you can see we have that rubbery texture versus that harder sort of sandblasted texture on the white model we still have the same camera module same color with that black surround and that anti-reflective lens over the top of it you see our stereo speakers here we've got the same cutouts looks like for both of them same headphone jack with the same insert the buns you can see here are also glossy so we have a black glossy versus a white glossy buttons on the white version power on and off button as well as our

Volume rocker up and down and they feel the same no differences there you also have a microphone just next to that volume rocker in the same location on the bottom we have our USB port as well as our speakers so again we have stereo speakers on both ends down here and at the top so we have stereo in both landscape orientation and portrait orientation alright so I'm just gonna tap and hold the power button to power this on for the first time and we can take a look at the front of the device which does show off some of the color here most of it does disappear but you

Can see around the edge we do have white and if you look really closely you'll see it right there it looks like it's actually running an older version of Android so Android must be Android 4.3 so we're gonna have to update that but if you look here you can see that we have that white bezel which does show off or on the side now it looks like this has been sitting around on the shelf a while because it is running Android 4.3 so if we go to about this tablet in Android 4.3 so it looks like we'll have to update this to 4.4 now generally speaking you probably don't

Want the white bezel surrounding a screen on the Nexus device just because you have this black bar surrounding the Android control so now if you have a black bezel here I pretty much doesn't look like they're part of the screen so it doesn't look like a chunk of the screen is blacked out just looks like they're off screen control so it looks a little more seamless in this case now viewers of my videos will remember that when I reviewed the Nexus 5 both the black and white model I mentioned that I prefer the black mouse because it had a unibody construction with a nice grip

Herbal texture on the back and sides now the white version has a glossy plastic surrounding the bezel so when you're handling it just feels like cheap plastic it doesn't have that nice quality feel of the unibody rubberized black version so I do like the back panel on the Nexus 5 but I don't like the plastic along the side so that's the distinguishing feature here now the Nexus 7 has the same plastic on the back but it's much more uniform it's got a nice unibody construction that versus the Nexus 5 and white and it's very similar to the Nexus 7 again same

Unibody construction but the material is different we have a rubbery material on the back here versus a slicker more sandblasted texture on the white Nexus 7 now the benefits of this design is that it's less prone to showing fingerprints because it's less likely to pick them up and the white is just harder to show fingerprints on now it's also a harder plastic so you have to worry about it staining now if this were a softer rubbery material it may pick up dirt a bit more but of course on black it doesn't matter so it can be a rubbery material so generally speaking I don't

Really prefer one over the other but I think the white Nexus is a little more special so I think this is the one I'll keep alright guys so that's gonna do for me in this quick video looking at the white Nexus 7 I hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you again in the next one
