Hey N7 users, i will soon finish my school and will buy a phone/tablet, i am just confused that should i go for a midrange phone like xperia sp or nexus 4(too overpriced in india 400$) or should i get nexus 7 2013 as for my calling/msg purpose i already have optimus one and it is an outdated gingerbread phone, do you guys carry N7 everytime in your bagpack/pocket with your phone or is it irritating to carry it ? I am a geek and i love N7 also because of availability of custom roms and kernels, so please tell me how do u carry your nexus 7 also, what is your daily choice for movies/youtube/gaming/webbrowsing, phone or N7? Thanks in advance

Nexus 7 doesnt do traditional voice or sms, only voice over IP. While this is normally not a problem, could be an issue if you don't have data coverage or wifi available where traditional cell networks still are.

My answer was pretty obvious. Get a Nexus 7 for tablet purposes, it will not make a good phone.

I use my galaxy s3 pretty much only for calls anymore, and do everything else on my 2013 N7. When I'm on the go, I just tether my tablet to my phone for WiFi, if there is none around.

Our contract is up this year, and I'm leaning towards a note3, because its closer to the tablet screen size. I can't see ever going back to something smaller phone wise than my GS3.
Hope that helps!
