So which is better? We asked on our Facebook page for responses and did a small poll and the Nexus 7 came out way in front.

Here’s some quotes:

Without a shadow of a doubt for me the Nexus 7 wins the tablet war this year, the iPad mini was a novelty when it first came out as it had a decent screen and was more portable than larger tablets. However the new Nexus 7 blows it out of the water with a much better screen, more power and I personally think a much sharper looking design

Richard Querrey –

I’m a big Apple fan but even I have to concede that the Nexus 7 2nd generation is the better device, the screen is better and it’s just a more consistent performer in all areas. I think Apple will have to respond here because yet again they are falling behind. The new mini has to have a retina display.
