Here’s how to make a Smart Cover for your Nexus 7 for under $10.00


Wednesday 18th of July 2012 / talkandroid.com
Last week we showed you that the Nexus 7 was set up for smart covers. Now a lot of devices are in the same boat so it remains to be seen if we will ever see actual smart covers for the Nexus 7, but if you’re clamoring for one, you can make one for as less than $10.00. By the way, if you don’t know what a smart cover does, it will toggle your screen on and off when you open or close the cover. How does it work? With magnets. I know some of you might be afraid of Do It Yourself projects, but trust me, this one is easy. Hit the break to get started.//There is a generic case for the Kindle Fire on Amazon for $5.99 (link below). If you’re a Prime member, you can get it shipped in two days for free. If you’re not a member, you can still get it shipped for free, but it will take a little longer.This case will fit your Nexus 7 leaving all ports and buttons exposed except for the speaker in the back. It also has a hand strap which lets you easily hang on to your Nexus while you read, but it also happens to be the perfect place to insert a magnet. Most fridge magnets wi

Bluetooth keyboard case and rotating folio case uncovered for Nexus 7


Wednesday 01st of August 2012 / androidspin.com
Oh how we love our accessories and new accessories for the ASUS Nexus 7 are easily a welcomed sight. Just a few days ago we got a look at a few new items that are headed out soon. Among them was a POGO Dock, premium cover and travel covers. All are cool and useful in their own right, but we always want more. It looks like ASUS has a few accessory tricks up their sleeves. One of which is the snazzy Bluetooth keyboard case. As you can see, you slip your shiny Nexus 7 inside and when you open it up you have access to a BT Keyboard and a handy little flip out back so it stands up. Of course the keyboard will be much smaller than one is used to, but if you write lengthy emails, need to do some work or for just about any other reason, it will be a welcomed addition. Of course you can always connect up a different BT keyboard to the device too, but having it all packed inside one case sure is convenient.The second item that was discovered is a rotating folio case. It securely holds your Nexus 7 and provides protection from outside damage with the flip cover. Where it stands out a bit

Need help save Asus Nexus 7 ASAP


Thursday 25th of October 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi. It was my bad day. the worst day I ever had in my whole life. In one day, just 2 days ago, and a day before, i charge my lovely nexus 7 to get ready use on the next day. On tomorrow morning, I bring my lovely nexus 7 with me to the school. During the day, I did't use it at all. I swear the battery must be at 100%. After i went home, open its cover, press the power button to use. And guess what, nothing happen. I tried hard reset, already tried push volume+/volume- and the power button for over 60 secs. And nothing happen neither. There are nothing happen on the screen. there are no google logo, or the X logo. Look like the the battery died. How come? I just used it for several months. So, the help in this article would be useless because I can't go to to bootloader. http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...nexus-7-a.html. How can I restore my nexus 7? not possible. It already death for 3 days. Please and please I really want to use it. Are there any other ways to make it turn back on.

Nillkin Stylish Colour Nexus 7 Case


Friday 21st of December 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
At first, I just got a cheap case. It was rather bulky and quite ugly. I had a look around and case looked the best (I bought it from an eBay seller, took a few weeks to arrive from abroad). While the descriptions say leather, it clearly isn't anything like leather (which is one of the reasons I picked it). It's made from what I think is PVC and polyester. The back of the case is pretty solid and the Nexus 7 clips in pretty tightly - it required a bit of force to get out, but nothing that could damage the tablet and case. The front is similar to Apple's smart cover, with the three segments that can be used as a stand. The inside is a lovely-feeling brushed microfibre. It has a magnet for the sleep/wake function (considering how thin the case is, it's quite impressive that you can't tell that a magnet is in there). There's no magnet or anything to keep the front cover down, so it can fall open, but I can't think of any situations where the case will be at an angle where it would fall open. With the front open, the way it can bend makes it very comfortable for using in portrait mode.

Android Forums - View Single Post - Accessory KaysCase Google Nexus 7 Case - Back Case or Leather Case


Sunday 22nd of July 2012 / androidforums.com
I got the case from KaysCase that folds open and the cover can be used to prop up the device a couple different ways. I will link to it when I get the chance. Not sure if they're doing this with all of there cases that they sold at launch, but I received a stick-on magnet with a small sheet of instructions for placement. I also received an email from KaysCase just before my case arrived, explaining how I should discard the magnet, since it was not thoroughly tested and has been found to not work. Kind of janky in my opinion. Also, I will say that I am not impressed with the product at all. Yes, it is a ten dollar case, but the folding cover function does not work as pictured on the product page because of a folding seam that cripples the stand when you attempt to set it up. I will provide a picture.This is a picture from the Amazon product page:Reality:EDIT: I suppose you can see the seam in the Amazon picture picture also, but there is physically no way to get the device to stand up as pictured. The weight of the Nexus 7 buckles the case at that crease. Bummed. With that said, the u

Nexus 7 (2013) drop test video: the new Nexus doesn’t make it


Sunday 04th of August 2013 / androidauthority.com
After having dropped a variety of gadgets to see how they fare against all sorts of hard surfaces – including last year’s Nexus 7 – we did the same thing with the new Nexus 7 (2013 model).We would have expected the device to survive the test better than its predecessor, and to some extent it did so. But (spoiler alert!) while the device survived the first drop – falling on its back – receiving only some minor scratches, something unexpected happened: the device would not turn on after. Despite receiving more damage in its respective drop test, the Nexus 7 (2012) was still turning on, and its touchscreen became unresponsive only after successive drops, once damage to display was significant.We then continued our drop test with a few other drops. We let the new Nexus 7 fall on its sides but also on its display.Naturally, more damage was done to the gadget, with cracks on the display appearing right after the first drop on the side. While the device didn’t split open, after the third drop the back cover snapped out – with some effort we could have pried it open.After the f
