Cherry Mobile Tegra Note 7 vs Google Nexus 7 (2013)

When the Cherry Mobile Tegra Note 7 came out a lot were debating if this could go head-to-head with the Google Nexus 7 2013 thanks to its lower price tag and extra features. To find out, let’s compare the two 7-inchers in a spec battle to see which one has the advantage on paper.

Summary of advantages

Cherry Mobile Tegra Note 7:
• Slightly higher clock speed
• Expandable storage
• micro HDMI
• Pressure-sensitive DirectStylus
• Larger battery
• Lower price tag

Google Nexus 7:
• Higher resolution
• Gorilla Glass
• Bigger RAM
• Bigger internal storage capacities
• Better front camera
• NFC
• Quick OS updates from Google
• Thinner and lighter
• LTE model available

LTE connectivity is also one of the main features of the Nexus 7, however, it is only available for the more expensive 32GB variant. An LTE-capable CM Tegra Note 7 with 16GB capacity is also on the way which should be more affordable.

As for benchmarks, although they do not always reflect real-time performance, the Cherry Mobile Tegra Note 7 scored way higher than the Google Nexus 7 2013. (AnTuTu Benchmark results were taken from the CM Tegra Note 7 with Android 4.4.2 and Nexus 7 2013 with Android 4.4.4.)

    Mas malakas ang GPU ng nvidia. Pero ill go for the nexus 7 tablet pa rin if i will buy a 7in tablet. I don’t know how cherry will handle services for NT7.

  2. RJ Ignacio says:

    You forgot to include that Nexus 7(2013) comes with wireless charging capability.

    There are also deals on ebay to get Nexus 7(2013) refurbished for cheap, around 160USD if you get lucky :)

    Antutu benchmark score!! Really?!

    Anyone who knows Android and tech would still go for the N7. Panalo pa rin ang N7 sa display, build, RAM and connectivity.

      Actually. Kung build na sinasabi mo e yung exterior. Oo maganda. Pero may hardware flaw tong N7 2013. Yung touchscreen sobrang flawed. Sa XDA may fix, though for 1-2weeks lang mararanasan. Then magloloko nanaman touch screen ko. Hindi lang ako nakakaranas nito. Binasa ko buong thread nung fix. Bumabalik at bumabaalik talga. Sadyang flawed tong touchscreen. Based on exp lang a? Saka hindi lang to by batch. As in madami talagang N7 na flawed.

      @Bert wala akong naexperience na sinasabi mong flawed touchscreen.

    try reading this thread. sa N7 2013 Philippines na group madami din nagpopost about their TS problems.

    The CM Tegra Note’s HDMI out is not an advantage. The Nexus 7 has Slimport for HDMI out.

  8. mark says:

    I have the nexus7 gen1 and gen2 and handsdown sa asus ako dto. Isa pa sa d nila nbabangit. Developers support, custom rom, kernel, tweaks for sure selling points yan sa isang android enthusiast.
