Sometime at the end of last month, there was a new update rolled out for the Google Nexus 7 (2013) which allegedly fixes some issues with the tablet’s touchscreen, but it seems that not all the problems have been handled properly by the JSS15Q update. Among these reported issues by irate users included double taps, phantom taps and overall erratic behavior, in addition to GPS issues. I guess that some users are able to live with such glitches, at least until a proper fix is introduced, while others might be turned off by the experience.
In fact, there has been some new purchasers of the tablet who reportedly are still experiencing some issues with the touchscreen display, and even after installing the JSS15Q update. Speculation is rife that this particular issue might involve incorrect calibration and it might be fixed through another update. If you own a new Nexus 7 (2013 model), how has your experience been so far? Has it put you off Google’s hardware at the moment, or do you have faith that Google will make all things bright and beautiful in due time (even so, hopefully this is done sooner rather than later). If you are an affected user, have you returned your Nexus 7 for a new model, or has applying the update helped you?
