Great tablet but very small .
I have this identical model . Probably used about 10 Times .
It’s going on eBay tomorrow.
Good tablet. I have one. High price for old technology tough. Cold.
Ours showing it's age, even when factory reset after latest goog updates, very slow to boot even with no apps, but still decent enough once it gets going, and is still very compatible with latest apps, but bit expensive for a 32gb refurb.
Cold. My dad's old nexus 7 too slow now. A refurb hudl 2 might be better. Shop around for a yoga tab 2 10 inch for around 90 100 on ebay which my son uses daily for minecraft and has awesome speakers and built in stand
Having said that. This is 2013 version so maybe faster than my dad's original? Still I think there is better bang for buck out there.
Android 4.3?

Good luck installing anything from the play store with that! I've just had to use my old Android 5 phone for a bit and hardly anything would work.

The original was a bit of a dog, this version is better in every way and is still a high quality item compared to what passes as an android tablet today. These make great sat navs, they have a compass unlike most new ones, or take it one step further and build a whole car system around one.
This is at least £50 too expensive. I’m pretty sure a couple of years ago these were £70-80 brand new in Argos so they obviously feel they have gained value rather like an old antique!!!
This was a great tablet, but this price is insane for old tech It's worth half that now. You're better off buying a kindle fire and sideloading rooting it. They drop as low as £30 about 5 times a year.
Tbh these are quite high in value due to kali linux. Even 2012 preowned ones fetch over £35
In its day it was hard to beat but the lack of Android updates means that it is slowly dying a death. I would have hoped that Google would have supported it for longer. It is a pity that most companies stop supporting hardware that it only a few years old. TomTom have just said they are stopping support for Sat Navs bought over the last couple of years or so, supposedly because it is harder to update the maps. Apparently free lifetime map updates means free until TomTom stop doing them and not until you stop using the device. Anyway at least Microsoft try and support old hardware with software updates. I have a very old notebook that runs Windows 10 fine.
Seriously? I bought it new in 2013 for not much over that price, I think £135 .. it is a paper weight now, as it is too to be of any use
Sorry but this deserves the frostiness.
The build quality of the 2013 nexus 7 puts some £200 2017 tablets to shame . Mine still runs super quick but it’s been used very little and always updated . Average price on eBay for pristine condition is £75-85 so it’s over priced .

When they say 'lifetime' of maps or 'lifetime' guarantee or such like it's always caveat-ed by 'the lifetime of the product' which means the time they decide to give support for a product. Typical life time of a phone or satnav is 12 to 18 months before it's superceded. It's a meaningless great sounding advertising trick that tricks many.

Its funny that this has probably had more major updates than most other Android devices:-
4.3 to 4.4
4.4 to 5
5 to 6

I've bought 5 of these for family and friends over the last 3 years and they are all still running beautifully considering there age. In 2013, this was a high end product, FHD screen, NFC, Wireless charging, 2GB RAM etc. Many new tablets today still don't have these specs. Having said that, £126 is too much for a 2013 product.

Totally agree . The screen is still up there with £150 2017 tablets .
Excellent tablet, despite nearly 5 years old the screen and processor still better than some of the new tablets coming out now with MediaTek SoCs which says something about the state of tablets now. Anyway this price is just crazy still.

If only someone could open them up, swap out the 2GB ram for 4GB, SD600 for SD820/835 and replace the battery, you'd be good to go for the next 3 years or so.

I rooted mine and have an old OS running on it, maybe android 5 or 6. I use occasionally for vids, browsing and gaming but it still holds up considering.

I don't wanna update as I fear a newer OS will slow it down.
I bought one of these in 2014 for £150.

Basically, I echo the comments above. The tablet is a bit small - next time I'll buy an 8". I often have issues browsing when it slows down due to pop ups, and other compatability issues with certain websites. The screen will often become unresponsive to my touches and I have to reboot, which is annoying as the reboot is slow. (Yes, I clear the cache).

However, if you stream something from youtube or bbc iplayer, the quality is very good. (I don't know how this will be replicated if connected to a large TV?)

Next time I'll go elsewhere though.
As this is unsupported by Google, a better and cheaper buy would be an Asus Memopad. They have memory card slots as well
Got one at this price back to 2014..

It's subjective though. Mine (running LineageOS for Android 7 with continued updates) gets used every day, and I think it's the perfect size, especially when travelling, as it's no bigger or heavier than a paperback. I must be in the minority, though, as it's hard to find decent sub-8" tablets these days.

To be fair to your comment, it really kind of depends on as to what you're pitching for, to be honest?.

Eg. Whats App ONLY needs a minimum of Android 2.3+ to install/run/perform?, so ...

Whereas other's like Tango, Viber, Skype and the like, you're looking at somewhere more in the region of Android 4.0+ instead?.

And even Media App's like, eg. ShowBox, Popcorn Time, Mobdro and the like, you're again looking at Android 4.0+ again?.

So, like I mentioned before, it really kind of depends as to what you're really pitching for ... :-)

Lol, just over 3.5+ year's ago, they were about £99.99/£100 new, in Argos - as I know, as I was considering getting one from them at the time, lol, I didn't buy in the end, as I ended up buying something else after that (but that's neither here nor there).

As around mid-2014 to early 2015, that's the general price that they were on Argos across the board - after having dropped from their £150-£200+ price from 6+ months before ...

I think the NEXUS 7 was a beautiful Tablet in it's day (and still is!). :-)

If I could trade-up some of the other Android Tablet's I've had in the past for one of these, I would ...

But for £120+ for a 2013 Android Tablet?, nope!.

Considering around 2015 you could still buy these new for around the £100 mark?.

So for x-years on + a refurbished Model (and NOT a new one instead?), then realistically something around £60+ mark is more tenable? (or preferably less than that even?!), looks more the mark to me ... :-)
OP .. can you believe this:

"Asus Google Nexus 7 7 Inch LED 1.5 GHz 2GB 32GB Wifi - Black - 2013 Version

That's the price I now get, when I click on your link above. :-(

Lol.
