Sounds frustrating. Surely Asus and/or Google will get things squared away. #nexus7bricked to find out more. There seems to be a lot of traffic on Twitter and the internets in general for this to be just a few Android users with an anomaly.
I used to have a Nexus 7.
I liked the form factor, but the performance was poor and the digitizer was UNSAT when it came to precision. I learned a very important lesson: The spec sheet is a lie when it comes to Android devices.There is something about them that makes them perform terribly…even with 2X the hardware and 1/2 the display to push.
After a few months of ownership, I went to Best Buy to see if I could exchange it for something else. I still had the box and all the innards in pristine condition. They offered me a pair of fake vampire teeth….and they were used. Some kid left them there because even he didn’t like plastic.
Best deal I ever made.
