*********************************************

After buying two kindles from zavvi and waiting for the "We have no stock" I have been looking all over the web trying to find a semi decent tablet at an ok price.

These seem to fit the bill, previously refurbs were selling at this price...

1gb ram
Android 5.0 (lollipop)
Pants camera but should be ideal for the kids (unless you can splash out on Apple devices or stretch to a nexus?)

10% cashback via quidco if you pay in store on a pre registered card (wait 24hrs for activation)

Also spend a penny more to get a 5 pound gift voucher... (do 5p carrier bags count?)

It doesn't get great reviews although they take into account the higher price when this tablet was released.
I'd pay the extra £15 for this Nexus 7 2013. Twice the screen, twice the CPU/GPU, twice the RAM, Android 6.0.1 today.......Not twice the £.

No mistaking the nexus beats this tablet.

For my twins id prefer to buy a new one that might be a under powered but still run the child friendly games. Argos seem to be good at returns/replacements too not sure on CEX

If replacements are on your mind, even though CEX now have a 2 year warranty, you may have better luck with Argos. On the other hand, buy something underpowered and your twins will be moaning a few months down the line when the tablet grinds to a crawl. If your buying 2, consider one of each?
This tablet is probably the best kids tablet ever, both my kids have them, we originally went through 4-5 other tablets before the acer...kitchen drop proof and a very stable ROM that the android O/S runs on, 100% recommend

Has the nexus at cex been posted on here as it is quite a hot deal (99.99 new at argos)

The used Nexus 7 2013 for £65 and brand new for £99 from Argos are both hot deals. People see the £99 price tag for a 7" tablet and don't understand the power beneath the bonnet. It may be 3 years old now but that 2GB ram means it smokes the competition. This isn't at the expense of battery as its running Marshmallow which includes the awesome Doze.

If it on 5.0.X I'd steer well clear. 5.1 & 5.1.1 aren't too bad. Not much chance of updates once they've got your £ though....
I want to get one for my son but I'm not sure. Is there tablet that would be better than this for kids?

I agree with you.

But 2 notable things to consider between Nexus A & Nexus B are these:

Argos Nexus 7 is Brand new! (unless you buy it as a Refurb off of their Site?).

CEX is most likely what we could roughly deem as a Refurb from the start?, as it comes to you as Second Hand anyway? (unless its sold to you as otherwise ..... ) lol. :-)

Depends what they will use it for. Like Masteryates said the nexus 2013 (at argos is 99.99 brand new) is a much better tablet and is 65 second hand at CEX.

My two are 2 years old so no social media apart from youtube for videos and cbeebies apps etc.

Thanks I bought it today and my 5 year old loves it. It's actually perfect for what he requires. Thanks for posting!
Just picked mine up too. Its Android version is 5.0.1 if anyone is interested (update check didn't work) I also bought an eva foam case with handle but need to perform a little surgery to access some of the ports whilst in the case.

Also picked up the Sony DJ headphones reduced to 11.99 which look quite smart.
