I like my "old" Nexus 7 32GB tablet. It is very portable. It fits in the inner pocket of all my jackets. It can even fit in the my jeans' back pocket; though I do not recommend sitting down without removing it.

As a media consumption device it is pretty decent. I most read with it. Sometimes I surf and I play a couple of games with it; pinball. I only used it to watch 2 or 3 movies.

Since it only bought it at the beginning of 2013, I don't plan on dishing out money for the newer version with better specs like the higher resolution screen.

I have a rubber case protector for it, but it does not project the screen. I also have a wireless keyboard for it too which does protect the screen when not used. However, the keyboard/cover cannot...

The 7 inch tablet is used more in my home than the 10... I think it's more comfortable to use to read on, and annoyingly, my daughter seems to think it's easier to game on than the 10. In my experience gaming on it, I'd mostly agree... Touch controls need to cover too much space on a 10.

Movies are an area where the 10 may be better than a 7 though. When you're going to watch a movie, a big screen is more important than ergonomics!

So, overall, I vote for the 7s.
 
How old are you and how is your vision? My daughter reads and watches video on an iPhone. I am in my fifties and need a 10" screen. The answer is going to vary from person to person, depending on vision and mental flexibility. That is, I grew up with books and I am not flexible to read 1/4 of a page at a time, because my mindset is fixed.

My favorite answer: "It depends." Try a few at a store, or if your friends have them.

I'm finding the Google Nexus 7 screen to be perfect. The light weight is also pretty great, but you have to be careful about what kind of case you end up buying for it. I plunked down for a cheaper model case that ended up being more trouble than it's worth.

A Little off Topic here but I purchased a Samsung Tab3 8.0 a few days ago and Have decided to return it for a Nexus, due to the fact that the nexus has a resolution of 1920x1200 vs. the 8inch Tab 3's resolution of 1280x800. If they made a 8inch nexus would have been a no brainer!!!! Still love Sammy, just disappointed with the Screen. Same Res for the 7inch & 10.1 I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) So go with the Nexus IMO.
