Found 26th May 2015
Went to Staples Baird Street Glasgow on a wild goose chase for £25 Kindles. None to be seen but noticed they had the Nexus 7 2013 16GB for £75 and the 32GB for £95. Great price imo. Can't link as website says tablets are in store only.

ehhhhh... not exactly.

Nexus is ARM and so has substantially better native app support. Those two you picked out are Intel and although Intel made a nice and dandy ARM machine code translator for their mobile chipsets, that translator comes with performance hits (FF Record Keeper stutters on my better specced tab). In some cases, there is no app support (for example, the Halifax app crashes on my Yoga 2). Also, those two you picked out has their own manufacturers bloatware included. Also, being Nexus, it is first in line for Android updates (still waiting for lollipop on those two you picked out). So easily better? Well, not easily.

Are they brand new boxed or demo pieces?

Intel is built into the SDK, since a long time ago. Compatibility is only an issue on very old applications that weren't updated for Intel.

A bargain, mine still holds up well.

i managed to get hold of the last 16gbs from eastbourne (sorry eastbourners) delivered to my local and i am loving it

it updated to 4.4.2 then 4.4.3 and then 4.4.4 in quick succession and has now come up with the install for lollipop 5.0.2 which i will do later

so so much better than the 2012 nexus 7 which i am selling to cex!

The performance of the Intel Z3580 is comparatively better than the snapdragon 600 in the nexus 7, even after the machine code conversion performance hits.

Plus, the S8 is still on sale for 69quid at very, and has a bigger screen and microsd slot. Granted the battery life leaves something to be desired but the Nexus's battery isn't exactly superb either...

Nexus updates are really cool but Lollipop performance on older devices or even newer ones hasn't been superb, with those memory leaks that still exist in 5.1.1 requiring a reboot once every couple days..

It's debatable but entirely depends on who's buying I suppose.. General consumer should definitely look for the bigger screen Lenovo S8 with micro sd expansion in my opinion..

Wolverhampton area?

I'm working on this at the moment. My amplifier just arrived and will work with Nexus 7 in my car.

If I leave it much longer the setup will be worth more than my motor!!

i know its only a couple of quid, but might be handy changing prices to £72.99 and £92.99 respectively.

if I would swap the speakers for something decent that would be the same. Hopefully my car will go up in value and upgrades pay back.

this device is still brilliant and as it's a google one is still kept bang up to date. currently has Lollipop 5.1.1. For this price, it's a great offer

Decent tablet but definitely slowly showing it's age. Lollipop isn't all that great, I preferred KitKat.

Would highly recommend the 32gb though if you're wanting a fair few apps and games (Just having all GTA games on mine filled it up extremely quickly)

Are these actually worth it or spend a little extra for better ?

Better like what?

I got this tablet in late 2013. Not standing the test of time very well. Battery has gotten progressively worse and the latest updates make it noticeably slow. When I first got it I was amazed at how responsive it was. Now I'm constantly amazed at how slow and laggy it can be

Agreed, I wouldn't say they are better. Prefer my Nexus to the Hudl2 all day long (no experience with the S8 though)

You won't get any software updates any time soon from Tesco.
N7 is on 5.1.1 now, I would expect an announcement very soon to get the next Android M.

From hearing all the issues with lollipop I'd call that a blessing.

lollipop is not all bad. people take time to get used to a new OS.

my Nexus 7 is still going strong. had it for 2 years but battery life is amazing and also the responsiveness.

never had to struggle for any compatibility issues unlike with Intel tabs. so yes these are definitely better at this price point.

Memory leaks?

Yeah I hear about those issues ... but personally not had any of them on N7 2012 & 2xN7 2013. Only my kids play games on them, and I watch films and light web browsing. I know my kids play FIFA on N7 2013 but I'm sure if that app really pushed the tablets to breaking points.

Nexus 7 or LG G pad 8.3??

Nexus 7 or LG G pad 8.3??


I personally would go for the LG ... this is my daily tablet because the battery lasted quite long compared to my Hudl2 <--- gathering dust. Plus I've got 5.1.1 on my LG now.

Bargain. Had mine 18 months.

My next tablet will be 8" though. No plans to currently change, however!
