Contest: Four Nexus 7 Cases Up for Grabs! (Update: Winners Picked)

Moments ago, we took a look at the official Nexus 7 case. While it may not win awards for being feature-rich, it is a solid option that was actually made specifically for the device, unlike the hackjobs that have been promoted from Amazon. Since the case was pure hotness in many minds and sold out for the first few weeks of the Nexus 7’s life, we made sure to pick up a few extras in case any of you missed out on them. And when we pick up extras, that means you benefit. It’s contest time! 


Update: We have picked our four winners and they have been messaged. Go check your inbox!

Prizes:  We have four (4) Nexus 7 cases to give away to four lucky readers.

How to enter:

1.  Follow us on Twitter and Tweet the following:

I just entered to win an official Nexus 7 case from @droid_life – http://goo.gl/gUGyU #android

2.  In the comments, tell us which Nexus 7 you purchased and what your favorite app has been on it.
3.  Sit back and relax. We’ll pick winners tomorrow, July 31.

Winners:  We will choose 4 winners from the comments on July 31 at 12:00 Pacific.

Good luck!

  • 8gb and so far i like to use the official olympic app to see where the medals are going

  • i bought the nexus 7 16gb recently at gamestop and am loving it. My favorite app is youtube on it because they optimized it for tablets and its real easy to navigate around.

  • I purchased the 16GB version strictly to have the most space available… My favorite app on my new Nexus 7 is twitter.. I picked twitter because I can keep up to date on all my android news by following @droid_life !!

  • I picked up the 16gb Nexus 7. My favorite app so far has been The Dark Knight Rises from Gameloft. I actually wouldn’t have even known about it if not from this site. (Thanks Tato!) It is the perfect game for the beautiful 7 inch screen on the N7.

  • duke69111

    16gb Version. NBA Jam from a couple of months ago has been my time consumer. Larger screen make the game a lot more fun.

  • kellygh5

    16gb. Favorite app is Hangman for kids. It has helped my son who has a learning disability with spelling. I wish there were more special needs apps for android. Nexus 7 is the perfect size, especially for smaller hands. I love it!


    I bought a 16GB Nexus 7 and couldn’t be happier with the tablet. Perfect size for lounging around, watching movies, games, etc. I really like Flipboard on the N7 but almost all the apps I use on my phone look better.

  • Dan

    Got the 16gb Nexus 7. I will enjoy my apps more when my replacement arrives and hopefully has a non-defective screen!

  • bitpimpin

    i got the 8gb version… and my favorite app? NETFLIX!!! say what you want about the “washed out colors” but the screen resolution is AMAZING!

  • The 16GB, just to be safe! The best app on it is, ironically the Kindle App.

  • Amanda

    I got a 16GB Nexus 7. I don’t get to use it much because my daughter took it over. I guess my favorite app is the PopUp! Charlie Brown Christmas.

  • I bought the 8GB I/O model from Craigslist for $160! Love it. Favorite app so far is Music (which controls both my Nexus Q’s).

  • Adam Intinarelli

    bought the 16gb nexus 7..and i couldn’t love it any more than i do. My favorite app to use on the Nexus 7 is hulu plus. this app follows exactly what google made the tablet for (media). the screen is great, and ive been able to watch british televison shows ive never watched before!!

  • ashburn013

    I bought the the 16GB. My favorite app is mint.com.

  • Diana Krenz

    My lovely husband bought me the 16 gb (I thick so he could play with it), which I love. I have been using it non-stop. Right now my favorite app is the London olympics app, purley so I can keep track of the sports.

  • I purchased the 16gb model and my favorite app by far is Chrome. Finally a well functioning browser.

  • 16GB N7 – Google Now & Flipboard

  • 8GB version, im playing FF3 !

  • MJ

    I am going to buy the 16GB Nexus 7 and like to play Dead Trigger on it as the screen on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus is to small.

  • 16gig. I’m liking the Kindle app cuz I finally have a mobile screen large enough for me to actually read some e-books. My local library lets me check out books via Kindle for free, so it’s all pretty awesome!

  • Nexus 7 16 GB, fav app is tapatalk.

  • I purchased a 16GB Nexus 7 through Office Depot. Loving it so far, it is such a better tablet compared to my previous Galaxy Tab 10.1! My favorite app so far is Tweetlanes…cause I finally have a Twitter app that looks good and is easy to use on a tablet! So many others, even the staples like Plume and Tweetcaster just look terrible or hard to use on a Tablet. Loving that a new up and comer is quickly jumping to the top of the list, IMO.

  • I picked up the 16GB version. My favorite app is StickMount to help move files and conserve space on my Nexus.

  • Dwall189

    Picked up an 8gb from google play and favorite games so far are dead trigger and dead space

  • I ordered the 8gb model…it arrives today…I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

    16GB Nexus 7. Favorite app has been the new Voice Search.

  • Raven

    I bought the 16GB Nexus 7 while watching the Google I/O keynote within 5 minutes of it going online. The most useful non-standard app that I use is probably Friendcaster Pro. It allows multiple Facebook accounts so that my wife and I can share the tablet. And, since I do share it with my wife, please let me win this case so that I have an alternative to the bright pink case that she bought for it when she is traveling with it.

  • 16gb here. No favorite app though. The Nexus 7 is blazing fast and looks great. All the apps feel like new.

  • Kevin Olson

    I got the 16GB Nexus 7 and I have to say that Google Currents is pretty sweet

  • Richard Garrison

  • jaxxmjd

    16 GB. I’m loving that HBO Go finally supports Android tablets.

  • I picked up the 16 GB and my fave app so far is Dead Trigger… I also like MX Player and stickmount (for playing USB attached videos)

  • I purchased a 16gb Nexus 7 at a ;local gamestop when it first came out. My favorite app on it is flipboard and pulse, I love waking up in the morning and checking all my feeds to learn the most recent news abt android, technology and videogames, Im addicted to it, its the first thing i do when i wake up. The tablet is amazing and I rarely use my phone anymore although i have a Galaxy Nexus ^_^. All I need now is one of these cases to protect my baby!! Please Droid-Life! Pick ME!!! 🙂

  • I bought the 8GB and my favorite app is Dead Trigger.

  • Phil

    I got the 16 GB version and my favorite app so far is Zinio (while listening to Play Music)

  • 8GB Netflix

  • Just bought a Nexus 7 8 GB at Staples last night. A free case would be great…

  • 8GB. Too much is in the cloud. I stream everything nowadays. I looked at my GNex and it said that I’ve used 8GB. That’s including 3 CWM backups. So I’ll just keep myself to 1 maybe 2 backups on this guy.
    Tie between chrome and play music.

  • Frank Velázquez

    Got the 16GB and should be getting it next week. 😉 cant wait!!!

  • Eldorath

    We bought the 16GB from Walmart the other day… I’ve not had a whole lot of time to play with the device (when I do, it’s Google+ mostly, so that’s my favorite app right now), but my daughter has been playing the heck outta Cut The Rope. She’s also informed us, she wants to get rid of her iPod and replace it with a Nexus7 🙂

  • mastaking

    Picked up the 16 gig, my favorite app so on it so far is NBA Jam, oh wait that app isn’t compatible with my device… My favorite app so far is HBO Go, hmmm… not compatible again.

    My favorite app so far is Bubble Defense 2. Not really but it works 🙂

    Love my Nexus 7

  • R K

    I picked up the “raised glass” 16 GB model from staples…loving it! My favorite app is probably Pulse…lets me keep up with all my droid life news!

  • I bought the 8GB, my favorite app is simply GMail. It just seems to flow nicely on the nexus and I am a big email user so it really helps.

  • I got the 16GB version and my favorite app so far has been VGBA. O yea rockin’ the Pokemon!!!!

  • I bought the 16 gb version. I use it a lot for reading – Aldiko book reader. I love screen. Very vivid colors and the black level is awesome. Great for reading in the dark. Also love IMDB on it. Great for finding out who the actors are when watching TV shows or movies.

  • legalkill

    Didn’t buy yet, keep playing with friends 32 GB. I will probably get the 32GB and watch hulu.

  • Kurt Edens

    I ended up going with the 8GB due to availability. I may switch over to a 16GB at some point and give this one to my sister. As of late I have been playing so many different games, but I also do a lot of browsing with it, so going by my most used app, it would have to be chrome (or the Android Browser from the Gnex JB Build)

  • Kerry Knopp

    I bought the 16GB. I’m loving the magazine app and google music.

  • Xevin

    16GB version. Favorite app is SuperGNES with an SNES to USB OTG controller. Games play flawlessly!

  • Edwin M

    I ordered the 16GB one through Google Play store yesterday so I’m waiting for it to come. When it does come, I hope Dead Trigger is as good on the Nexus 7 as it is on my Rezound.

  • JoshGroff

    Picked up a 16GB last week at Staples, loving it so far. My favorite app for now is probably FF III.

  • Scott Meyer

    The 16GB nexus. Favorite app is a tough one as it all depends on mood. Sometimes I prefer to relax and read with the kindle app while other times I want to play an RPG like MC3.

  • DanSan

    bought the 16gb and really enjoying plants vs zombies…. big time lol

  • GazaIan

    Got the 8GB model, and my favorite app is Dead Trigger. Just love that game, hate its freemium model though.

  • Duncan Manning

    Ordered the 16gb yesterday once it was available again. Noticed its availability due to your tweet faster than google’s email notification.

    So no favorite app on it yet, seeing as I should receive it tomorrow or the next day. Gone from a BN Nook Color, HP Touchpad, Kindle Fire, and now my first Nexus Device!

    • JoshGroff

      Oh the Touchpad, good times. Went from that bad boy to a Xoom LTE and then the N7. I’ll miss having 32GB at my disposal, but at least it makes me cut down to only the good music in my library.

  • dtm4

    I got the 16 GB model and I love it. Everything is better on such a large screen from things like the imdb app to playing temple run or even checking email. It’s all nicer on this sized screen.

    • JoshGroff

      Coming from a Thunderbolt and Xoom LTE, I can say 7″ is probably THE best form factor for Temple Run.

  • i got the 16gb variant and i’ve been totally in love with playing the emulators on here with the perfect grip size and bigger screen compared to my phone.

  • 8GB babay – Samauri v Zombies

  • Bert336

    Helloooosss I ended up getting the 8GB N7 due to the lack of cash since i had already prepaid for my S3. I don’t really Need the tablet but due to an Android Addiction….i couldn’t help it 🙁

    • Bert336

      oh yea the app….
      well believe it or not Google Play movies has been great with the $25 dollar gift we received =D

      • JoshGroff

        I’m saving it for a rainy day, an app that looks good from a Droid Life review, or some more FF games once SE starts popping them out.

  • Bonzix

    Purchased the 16GB N7 as a gift for my dad. G+ Hangout is pretty sweet on the beautiful screen!

  • My favorite app? Hmm, it’s hard to narrow it to one. I love Google Books and the Kindle App. My favorite app that’s new (to me) is Current. Pulse runs a close second.

  • justinmcox

    I purchased the 16GB Nexus 7 and I love the space. i appreciated the posts of people saying that the 8GB is a little short on space. i love it. my favoirte app is Samurai II: Vengence. I’m having fun with it. However a close second is the Swiftkey tablet 3 edition. i love it over stock keyboard

    • JoshGroff

      Well, if someone says Samurai II is good, I guess I’ll download it. 🙂

  • Djsan99

    I would love to have it for myself (16 gig). I would be able to use the Acura app with my customers! Everyone at my store has an ipad, I just can’t be a zombie and use the same thing!

  • AndrewScottRox

    I really like the Kindle app. I’m an avid reader and the 7 inch screen is perfect!

  • robertlwalters

    I bought the 16gb and love every app on it!

  • Steven Trifu

    16gb……and dead trigger

  • r0lct

    I bought the 16 GB model and enjoy the extra screen real estate for every app, even when coming from the “big” screen GNex.

    If I had to pick somethings particular to the N7:Daily app: Chrome – feels so close to desktopGame: Temple Run – Nexus 7 size is perfect for game
    Work: Citrix – provides a great trade-off of screen real estate and portability

  • I bought the 8gb because what I use this for does not require a lot of onboard memory – so far i’ve been sticking most to google apps – reader, play books and music, etc.
    I’d say my favorite app so far is Reader – the 7″ is a good size and lets me keep up with my sites without carrying a bigger screen.

  • I have the 16gb Nexus 7 and I used and like a lot Google Drive.

  • Bought the Nexus 7 10 minutes after announcement in Google I/O on June 27. Gmail is my favorite app.

  • BikerBob1789

    Nexus 7, 16GB. I love reading on it – I’ll say Google Books.

  • goose50

    Just ordered my 16GB Nexus 7 yesterday. Favorite app unknown obviously, but looking forward to reading the Game of Thrones books on that 7 in. display.

  • Michael Sullivan

    I picked up the 8GB Nexus 7 and I absolutely love reading Google Currents on it! I never realized how great Currents was until i got this tablet!

  • cheezer88

    i have the 16gb version. my favorite app is Crackle, it have pretty decent free movies

  • Matthew Cortez

    I bought the Nexus 7 16GB Tablet. I figured, it’s an extra 50 dollars for double the space so I found it to be worth it. It hasn’t come in yet, but I’m certain my favorite app will be the official Droid-Life news app.

    • JoshGroff

      Always a solid app choice, I find I just use the site more though, especially because of disqus.

  • Elliot Kotis

    I bought the Nexus 7 16GB in Australia (Black) its awesome! I love all my apps, my favourite so far would have to be ‘NOVA 3’ by GameLoft it proves that tablets/phones don’t have to be for the casual gamer, and for hardcore gamers, like myself. It has awesome graphics, comfortable controls, fun gameplay, good story line and awesome sounds.

  • Miles

    I bought the 16 GB and my favorite app is Flipboard. Also like Tablet talk.

  • Benjamin Clay

    I bought the 16gb and I like the video playback. I have the olympic app and its been awesome watching all the games.

  • Awisseh

    8 GB after being unable to find a 16 GB (Big up Google Drive and Dropbox). My fav app is instagram. Hi My name is Anthony and I’m addicted to instagram. Can’t really take any pictures with this device, but can look at all of yours! Give me that case @awisseh!

  • 8 GB… Favorite app is Flipboard.

  • David

    8GB as I use coud storage extensively. I use tiny cam monitor to access my surveillance cameras to keep an eye on my house.

  • Bought the 16 GB verson but all of a sudden have the following problem: wifi: connected but usung google play, browser or gmail tells me no internet connection
    Cancelled connection, reconnected, NO difference… Now what?

  • I bought the 16GB model and my favorite app would have to be Dead Trigger and baconreader

  • Frank Urbanski

    I got the 8GB version. I cannot decide if I like the Netflix app better for laying in bed and watching a movie or Chrome for surfing the web while watching TV.

  • koseyface

    Picked up a 16gb at staples by Surprise! Saved on shipping, thought it was meant to be.
    Favorite app: Final Fantasy III right now.

    • JoshGroff

      Great minds. 🙂

  • I purchased the 16gb Nexus7 as I tend to eat up space like it’s pie and I’m a man who loves pie. Definitely pleased and my favorite app to use on it so far is Google’s Play Books as it’s finally gotten me to read again after a lengthy dormant period.

  • Nexus 7 8GB! favorite app? SHADOWGUN, for sure!

  • Kevin

    I bought a 16gb Nexus 7 from my local gamestop and so far i must admit i have been playing Dead Trigger a lot. There has been a lot of talk about Zombie Apocalypses so i want to be ready and decided it would be best to kill zombies in the meanwhile.

  • Murali

    I have purchased the Google Nexus 7 16GB and my favourite app is Flipboard

  • I got the 16 gb Nexus 7 from radioshack, My favorite app right now is flipboard.

  • I purchased the 16GB knowing that I’ll be putting a lot of movies/songs/games/emulators/pictures/EVERYTHING on there…My favorite App so far has to be the Tweetcaster Pro because of the great tablet interface.

  • Nexus 7 16gb, favorite app so far, Netflix, i waste many hours at work staring at new N7.

  • i purchased a 16gb because im a google phanatic, and my favorite has been comic reader thus far 🙂

  • I bought the 16 GB Nexus 7. My favorite app has been Draw Something. My dad has it on his iPad (he got it free from work) and I’ve always been jealous of the details he’s been able to put on it because of the bigger screen. Now I am able to add detail to my drawings because of the awesome Nexus 7, while being able to more portable than his iPad. Thanks for reading!

  • Jon

    I preordered the 16GB version the day after it was announced. I’ve really been enjoying Emit, which lets me stream my collection of movies and anime from my computer over the wifi. Supposedly, it works on other networks too, if I fiddle with ports and such.

    I may end up asking Google for a replacement unit, though, since I’ve been noticing that screen-lifting problem on the left side of the screen, and even after tightening the screws, it didn’t really fix it.

  • ahaltcj

    Snagged a 16GB at Staples around when people started getting their shipping notifications from the play store.
    As for my favorite app I’m gonna have to go with sixaxis controller. It just makes gaming so much better.
    Also I think I double posted… My bad.

  • Snagged a 16GB at Staples around when people started getting their shipping notifications from the play store. As for my favorite app I’m gonna have to go with sixaxis controller.

  • ProfessAndObey

    Can I still enter if I haven’t ordered a Nexus 7 yet? If I win, I can use this case as a reason for me to convince my wife that we should get a Nexus 7. If I won and used this to convince my wife that we should get a Nexus 7, we would get the 8GB version because we live in the cloud and won’t need the extra storage. My favorite app would probably be Minecraft Pocket Edition, as I’m addicted to it on my vNex and Google Now seems most useful on my phone. Please let me win so that there can be another Nexus 7 sold.

  • Got the 16GB Nexus. Favorite app so far – gMail!?! So glad to not be tethered to the compy and to have a bigger screen than my phone. Look forward to exploring Currents, Kindle, and more!

  • wesley

    16 gig and loving dead trigger so much better on a tablet

  • gfr77

    I’m really enjoying reading Droid Life on Google Currents with my new 16 GB Nexus 7.

  • fodawim

    I bought the 8GB because I knew that if I needed more space I could simply use a USB OTG cable! My favorite app so far has been Adobe Photoshop Touch. (you have to sideload it, but it runs great!)

  • Purchased the 16gb model. Moon+ is by far my favorite app. Went through many different ereader apps and this one is the best. Currently reading through A Storm of Swords and loving it.

  • bungadudu

    Would be cool to win a case… 😀

  • I purchased the 16 GB Nexus 7, and my favorite app is Google Chrome….need i say more?

  • I purchased the 8GB version of the Nexus 7. My favorite app so far is Adobe Shadow. I love it because it makes developing web sites for mobile devices so easy and it allows me to have a quicker turn-around time… Which is great for clients 😀

  • Barlog

    I haven’t gotten the money up yet to pick one up but do plan on getting the 16g model from the play store when I do. Getting a free case would definitely help me save some bucks too. And I can’t wait to play the Dark Knight game I just bought so I would have an awesome new game to play with my new N7.

  • got the 16gb version. so far so good. way better than my xoom or samsung 7.7! my favorite game is def dead trigger. the graphics are INSANE! Love tegra 3!

  • Just purchased the 16 gig. Well worth the restock wait. Should be comin’ in within the next few days #geeked! I’d also have to say Im psyched to use Chameleon Launcher when it finally blesses our tablets with it’s grace. also #geeked! (just for good measure)

  • Bought the 8GB model and my favorite app has to be Chrome. How else would I get to DroidLife?

  • I bought a 16gb with full intent to sell and now I can’t let it go. Google now is excellent.

  • I got the Nexus 16GB. Fave app: it’s a tough choice, but I’d have to go with Auralux.

    “I just entered to win an official Nexus 7 case from @droid_life – http://goo.gl/gUGyU #android “

  • ejtsang

    I picked up the 16gb version and so far I really love how flipboard and Google currents look on this 7 inch form factor. Also, although I’m not that much into fort person shooters, I bought dead trigger (before they it went free) with the Google Play credit to check out the power of the tegra 3.

  • Marcus Reid

    Nexus 7 16GB and I can’t get enough Shadowgun..It draws the attention of my co-workers like no body’s business..

  • Jay Bee

    16gb future. Favorite app so far: Chrome! Surfin the net on the n7 is tha bizniss!

  • kauthor47

    I bought the 8GB after realizing something which led to me realizing something else. (realizeption?) I realized that the 16GB version was next to impossible to find and I’d end up paying extra for it no matter where I look for it right now, save the Play Store getting a batch in stock. This caused me to question how much I really wanted the double space, and led me to the realization that the purpose of the tablet is to make use of so many new-fangled cloud features, so I opted for the 8GB and use the extra cash to buy a nice case and screen protector. So far I’ve used about 200mb total, and I’ve been using the thing nonstop and integrating Android even further into my life, more than I ever thought possible.

    My favorite app so far is Tablet Talk. In my opinion, this furthers the connection between one’s own Android devices. For those unfamiliar, Tablet Talk allows you to pair your phone and tablet via bluetooth and/or wifi for the purpose of seeing and responding to incoming phone calls and text messages using the tablet. For example, I have a bluetooth headset paired to my phone – when I’m sitting somewhere reading something on my tablet and wearing the headset, if I get an incoming call, I see the prompt on my tablet, press accept, and then I’m on the phone – all from the tablet. This app alone was one thing that swayed my decision in how much use I would get out of an Android tablet; at first I was skeptical I would keep going back to my phone, but now I’ve seen the light and I never put this thing down.

  • MasterEthan

    I’ve got the 16gb Nexus 7 and my favorite app is Google Play Magazines.

  • 16gb nexus 7 and I love Google chrome! I have it my on gnex but actually having tabs on the nexus is great!

  • I purchased the 16GB model at my local Gamestop. I was the only person to do so in my area. The app that gets the most use on my tablet is definitely Google Drive. The ability to access my files anywhere and everywhere is indispensable. Especially on a tablet with no expandable storage. Loving my Nexus 7!

  • I was stocking them at Walmart and I had to have it so I ended up getting the 16GB version.
    It is awesome! Definitely the best purchase I have ever made!
    Riptide GP is the best app so far on it!

  • Well I could not go with nothing less than the 16gb version, would have preferred sd card support or a 32gb version. My Favorite app has been Flipboard

  • BlkynJ

  • KingDroid

    I purchased two 16GB Nexus 7’s and my favorite app is dropbox. 16GB isn’t enough in my opinion so dropbox definitely comes in handy.

  • KreeTerry

    I just ordered the 16gb version this morning, and I am really looking forward to some serious dead trigger sessions.

  • Josh

    I purchased the 8GB model from Staples.

    My favorite app has been Flick Golf Extreme! Its addicting!!

  • takabanana

    Bought the 16GB version via Staples pre-order; Favorite app so far is definitely Tablet Talk – now I have a reason to leave my cell phone on the charger while I carry the Nexus 7 throughout my house. Until then, texts kept me from carrying the tablet around instead of my phone.

  • T4rd

    I got the 16GB because I like bigger GeeBee’s! My favorite app is MyFace because I love MyFacing!!!

  • Just ordered a 8gig N7 for my step dad(his laptop is like 10 years old) he travels back and forth between the states and Porto Rico and wants to use Google Translate’s conversation mode to speak to the locals and people that rent condos from him…

  • Dc

  • dquicknc

  • Dave

    I purchased the Nexus 7 16 GB. My favorite app has been actually has been a game called Auralux!

  • Matt Donow

    to convince me to purchase

  • zorak19620

    I have not bought a nexus 7, but winning a case would be nice incentive to buy a 16 GB model *wink wink* Also, my favorite app would be the official Droid-Life app of course!

  • I purchased an 8GB Nexus 7 (which has been good to me so far on storage). I have a few games on here, a movie and some pics. The app I really see myself using the most is the game Dead Trigger. With the quad core processor this game handles great! Graphics look awesome and gameplay is good! Definitely recommend to download it especially since its FREE!!!

  • I got the 16 gig and my favorite app has been Google Now. I love seeing the look on my friends’ (with i*hones) faces when it brings up results twice as fast as that joke they call Siri 😀

  • GotSka81

    16GB…would have bought bigger if I could! I love using it to control my XBMC with the XBMC remote app.

  • I just bought my 16g today, but I have jelly bean on my xoom. My favorite app is chrome. Shared tabs with desktop and phone is amazing.

  • Lorenzo c

    Picked up my Nexus 7 at Google I/O :p
    the white backing is pretty awesome and all but can get dirty really quick
    so a free case from Droid-life would come in really handy 😀 haha

    My favorite app at the moment is Dead Trigger, cant get enough of them zombies
    and for a game that used to be only 99c it’s a steal for how great the graphics look!
    Next couple of favorites would be NFS Hot pusuit and Asphalt 7.

    • michael arazan

      the white backed ones should have been the norm for all the nexus 7’s. White backing with the black front makes it look sharp. Maybe someone will make a nexus 7 case that is all white to give that contrast of color

      • Lorenzo c

        Yeah i mean dont get me wrong i love the way the white backing looks because it really makes it stand out and look very sleek and im glad to have picked one up but im afraid it’ll break and then it’ll be ireplaceable. But they should have given the option for buying the white version as well, or like you said maybe some case options will surface.

  • Purchased the 16g model and so far my favorite app has been google reader.

  • Edmund

    I just purchased the 16GB version this morning, waiting for it to arrive. I’ve been looking at different cases and haven’t made up my mind yet. I was thinking of just going stock, and this would definitely help make up my mind.

  • Nick Hatch

    I’ve been waiting for the 16GB to come back in stock and just ordered mine! I’m exciting to use the movie app in the google play store.

  • C C

    On my 5th 16GB N7. So far I’ve only used it for reading and watched a few movies on Netflix. Communication apps such as Gtalk and Voice are certainly my favorite.

  • mattst11

  • harryharry

    8 GB. Probably Google Now right now because it’s the cool new feature haha. Google apps (Talk, Voice, Maps, GMail, Drive) are always up there too!

  • geta2j

    16GB from Staples. Google now. Missing flash though. 🙁 Somebody should make a flash alternative, it (android) is after all open source.

    • Greg Smith

      Root your N7, then flash original Browser and Flash APKs, available on XDA Developers. You can use it alongside Chrome. Instructions are there

      • geta2j

        Thank you Greg! Fast reply. I hadn’t considered rooting my Nexus 7. Are the same risks involved as with rooting a mobile phone? I’d hate to brick my new N7. And my xoom tablet is about to get Jelly bean as well.

  • 16GB for me (why go low?). Dead Trigger looks amazing on this thing, got to be my favorite at this time. (I would have said that Droid Life is my favorite app, but that wouldn’t be honest…wink, wink)

  • I got the 16 GB, and I’d have to say Google plus is awesome on it, I also find myself using YouTube a lot more also.

  • I purchased the 16 gb nexus and my favorite app has been Xfinity player.

  • Diana Klatt

    Pretty much loving the Google Music, it’s great that it temporarily caches songs so you can listen when you don’t have wifi around.

    I purchased my 16GB N7 about an hour after the announcement. So far my most favorite app is Google Currents. I love being able to quickly flip through my favorite sites and blogs. Mass Effect Infiltrator is a close second now that it is available for my Galaxy Nexus 7. (I know, I know… I just think the fact that it is listed in the app description like that is amusing)

  • Hmmm…. Spam my friends and customers for a 1/200 chance to win a $20 case… yeah, probably not worth it. FOR a Nexus 7, that one I would do 😀

    • ArrowCool

      Seriously, if you’re that concerned about it, just set up a twitter account used purely for contests so you don’t bother your followers. It takes all of 5 minutes. I know plenty of people that do this.

      • Yeah, I thought about that. I am probably just pissy about never winning anything. Thanks for the advise though.

  • ma5t3rw1tt

    I purchased the Nexus 7 8GB and my favorite is the Google Wallet. Being able to make purchases in a new way makes me feel awesome.

    Just chiming in, but not entering…16GB Galaxy Nexus and my favorite app is every single Tegra 3 game. haha

  • thistimearound

    Nexus 7 16gb. Favorite app thus far is Dead Trigger. Massive improvement from playing it on my EVO 4G. Graphics are really good and the game play is casual enough to pick up whenever, engaging enough to get lost for some time.

  • whosinaname

    Nexus 7 16gig from Play Store. My favorite app has to be Sixaxis Controller. I love playing zen pinball and Dead Trigger using my PS3 controller.

  • I’ve got the 16GB Nexus 7 and so far my favorite app has been NetFlix. Perfect for watching video just about anywhere.

  • Nexus 7 16GB, Google Now is my favorite app.

  • nightscout13

    I have not purchased a Nexus 7 yet, which is why i would like to win one here. If i were to buy one, it would be the 8GB, because and extra $50 does not justify 8GB more of space. Besides, adding the extra 8GB for ASUS would have costed what, a whopping 20 cents? All Android MFG’s need to stop following Apple’s LAME memory pricing structure. On my GS3 my favorite app is newsy.

    • quiklives

      …you understand that this contest is for the case and not the whole tablet, right?

      • nightscout13

        LOL thanks for that.

    Wish it was an actual Nexus 7 we were entering for. My “tablet money” got kinda forced into new phone money when VZW forced the whole shared plan thing on us. Yeah, I got a SGS3 out of it, but that money was sock drawing it up for a tablet. This tablet actually. DAMN YOU VERIZON!!!!!

  • Kane Stapler

    I got a FREE Nexus 7 for Google I/O. A free case sure would be nice to go with it 🙂

    I’m really enjoying replaying Final Fantasy thanks to the tip here, but I’m getting a lot of use out of Play Books (that still doesn’t quite make sense does it?) and Sketchbook Pro as well.

    • J Dub

      Picked up Sketchbook in the sale Google had a long while back. Was so cheap I couldn’t pass it up. Have to do that with apps that go like 80% off. You never know when you might use them and if you bought them cheap you can’t lose.

      • quiklives

        Yes, exactly this! I bought it then too, and only played with it a little at the time, but I’m really enjoying it now.

  • Musicianguy16

    I got the 16GB Nexus 7. My favorite app to use is Pulse News. Easy to use and very easy to read. I also really like watching TV shows on the Nexus 7. Much better viewing experience compared to my droid RAZR.

  • Got the 16 GB for the wife…but she won’t let me play with it until she has a case…..I needs that. I would assume her fav app would be fertility friend….don’t ask

  • I got the 8gb version because I trust in the cloud and I’m cheap. Favorite app has been Dead Trigger.

  • Mack

    Nexus 7 16GB, from a local Staples. Favorite app has to be Google Talk/Google Plus for video chatting purposes. Never had a mobile device with a front facing camera before and being able to see the face of my better half on a regular basis while I’m away is awesome.

  • I got the 16GB version and my favorite app to use is anything with root privileges.

  • 16 GB version and so far, even though it’s lame to say, Draw Something

  • Alex Dao

    I preordered the 8GB Nexus 7 on the first day. Even though I experienced the shipping delay, the wait was worth it! I’m loving me some Pocket for my offline reading pleasure!

  • TJ

    got the 16GB, so far I’ve been customizing the home screen with widgets and using simple calendar. The App I’ve been using lately is the Live Extra for the Olympics! (Not everything runs smoothly, but I’m glad I’m able to stream what I want on it.)

  • I purchased a Nexus 7 16GB and since the update, my favorite app is Wallet.

    It is easy to reload the Google Pre-paid card, and the looks I get when I pay for my cheeseburger and fries at McDonalds is priceless. The best part, is that no WiFi is needed 😀

  • Ordered the 8GB version at first but my order got cancelled because they couldn’t ship to PO Boxes and took advantage of the opportunity and got the 16GB version instead! 😀
    But my favorite app is Google Chrome, it’s really fast and looks gorgeous! 😀

  • andoird213

    I purchased the 16GB Nexus 7 the day it was introduced at I/O. I’ve been enjoying lots of apps on this tablet, as it’s the perfect size for me, but I’ve really been enjoying playing the game “Oscura.” It’s a fun game with a slightly creepy factor and absolutely beautiful and unique graphics!

  • Got the 16gb version and favorite app/game is Mayhem!

  • Bootleg Zani

    Nexus 7 16 GB ordered from Google Play Store soon as pre-orders went live. My favorite app to date is still Pinball Arcade especially since the new tables came out first on Android and the Google Play Store Credit helped me get the rest of the tables.

  • jjrudey

    I don’t have a Twitter account but I bought the 8GB Nexus 7 and my favorite app has been Dead Trigger. Got it when it was a dollar and it’s proven to be a great way to lose track of time. Especially with a controller.

  • 16gb and I love the Dead Trigger.

  • 16 GB, and it sounds stupid and really not sexy at all, but I really like GMail on the Nexus 7.

  • As far as the app goes… hmm I think Google+ is nicely fit with the app. Other than that FB/Twitter look okay too…

  • elemeno

    16 GB Nexus 7. I’ve been enjoying X-Plane 9. Makes more sense on a tablet than a phone.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I got the 16GB. Best app so far has got to be Netflix! . . . it actually made me get a new Netflix subscription because of how portable the damn thing is. Perfect size for me. Google knows what it’s doing here.

  • I purchased the 8GB one the first day it was announced. I have been nothing but happy with it. I’ve had a tablet before and a lot of the apps just did not seem right on it. With the N7 all the Google Apps work very well and my favorite by far has to be Dead Trigger with SixAxisController (first time I’ve actually used my PS3 controller on a tablet and it is amazing)

  • Alex

    I bought the 16GB Nexus 7 and my favorite app has been Asphault 7. Super fun!

  • I bought the 16gb. And my fav thing about the tab isnt really an app. But i love google now. Its fun to just ask things. Also cool to use compass mode while using maps.

  • moozicmon

    I pre-ordered the 8gb, but ended up finding a 16gb at a Gamestop (on day one!) due to someone canceling their pre-order. Favorite app? I’m obsessed with Babel Rising 3D at the moment…

  • I purchased the 16GB Nexus 7 a few weeks back, & it’s been great. My favorite app for it is Flipboard; always nice to read news & updates on a 7″ screen.

  • thatdorkjordan

    16GB Nexus 7. I love the Paperland wallpaper, and Google+ is really fun on it too!

  • Ravi Rao

    I got the 8GB model when it was first announced. So far, I’m most enjoying the Kindle app and Final Fantasy III. This is the perfect size for reading and gaming.

    Netflix / mobile video in general.

  • YinzerRob

    16gb. Social media apps are much nicer to view than on my g-nex!

  • antwonw

    16GB Nexus 7. Google + Hangout

  • I ordered the 16GB Nexus 7 as soon as the preorder went up on Google Play during I/O. I’ve greatly enjoyed playing Dead Trigger and FFIII on it, but one of my favorite things is just being able to use Chrome and not Browser.

  • I got the 16 GB version and my favorite app to use on it is FlipBoard!

    • oops didn’t mean to comment twice sorry

  • I purchased the 16GB Black one, and Im digging Evernote, Riptide GP and Netflix.

  • Nick Abdelsayed

    I just purchased the 8GB model and just like google hoped I would…I’ve been using the play store a lot to explore content and use up that entire $25 balance that the Nexus came with

  • I pre-ordered my Nexus 7 just before they took the link down June 27th, 5 minutes before they announced it. I have the 16gb.

    It’s the only device I haven’t bothered to root yet, so I’ve been enjoying playing 9 Innings: Baseball 2013. (The app doesn’t like root for some reason)

  • The 8 gig, which was a mistake and Major Mayhem

  • I got the Google IO white version because I attended the conference (obviously). My favorite app is the AndroidMeter application.

  • jstew182

    I understand everyone wanting more Twit follows but I think its ridiculous that all the contest have to deal with social media. There are some of us out here that would like to participate that dont care about social networking.

  • 16GB version. My favorite app at the moment has to be evernote.

  • Kris Jones

    Probably would have to be Final Fantasy, been a great flash back game to play.

  • JDHokie

    Fav apps so far are Dead Trigger and Google Currents … for vastly different reasons!
