The 1,280x800-pixel resolution packed into a 7-inch display gives visuals like text and graphics a sharper look than what I'm typically used to seeing on most 7-inchers.

We've already mentioned how jaw dropping the display resolution is, but it's worth noting that it has superb viewing angles too.

Reviews Word on the street

Nexus 7 II  vs

What's Hot: Relatively affordable tablet with very good core specs including an excellent full HD IPS display, fast CPU, full wireless radios and dual cameras.
Nexus 7 II

The $270 32GB Wi-Fi model and $350 4G LTE version are even better values, especially compared with similar configurations of the iPad Mini.
Nexus 7 II

Display quality is good, with a sharp image and commendable (if not searing) top brightness.
Nexus 7 II

Featuring a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD display, it simply delivers the goods in the details department, as its 323 ppi pixel density is undoubtedly breathtaking for its screen size.
