    its too too bad the technology media hasnt fully reviewed the google nexus 7.2 and its horrible problems, including not booting, automatic rebooting, gps problems, not able to turn it off, having to reset settings over and over again. got mine on the last wed in july, i think. sunday problems…on phone for 4 hours with google & asus. fixed, supposedly, same problem wed. then again friday….when i returned it. google NEVER made an announcement of problems or fixes. we’ll see what happens with kit-kat. i am so FRUSTRATED & DISAPPOINTED WITH GOOGLE FOR PUTTING OUT Such a faulty product. must i go to apple to get what i need?

    How do I block it? I don’t want the “OK google” crap, nor do I want the SMS app.

      In Android Play store, select Menu (the 3 dots in the upper right), select Settings, and turn off Auto-Update.

      If you really want to control your own device, rather than letting Google handle the details for you (which is safer and far more convenient), you might google “cyanogenmod”. But remember – if you fail to keep your system up to date with security patches, you could be road kill. With great power comes great responsibility – or so I hear. ;-)

    ‘OK Google’ is already out with Jelly Bean – it’s on my S3 running 4.1.2… Unless you’re talking about a different version?

      This one is just always active on the home screen

        You can turn on or off the always listening feature just as many other settings on the device.

    Trolling. What’s the difference between a Samsung troll, and a IFruit troll? Samsung paid kids. I FRUIT people do it for free . Truth. 7 is a wonderful device without any of the issues described above.

    I have zero issues with my Nexus 7 (2013). It has great battery life and no lag. I do not like the camera, but I didn’t buy it for the camera. Who uses the camera on a tablet?

    As usual, another tech article that I wasted my time reading only to learn nothing.. Nada!

      Brilliant waste of time of an article that should have been no longer than a tweet

    This article is nothing about, waste of time
