Not the fastest tablet nowadays but decent value and on a par with the spec of other cheap tablets in this price range.
12mth warranty and a decent retailer

Not a bad price but buyers beware the last update for this tablet was lollipop and it made 2 of these I owned unusable as they virtually ground to a halt!

Great tablet, but very very very... dated. The one big drawback of this one is that it runs Android 5 very very very.... badly. I went back to Android 4.4 (KitKat) on mine, because I could not bear the sluggishness.

If you do expect to have this for a long time, get something else that can run Android 5 / 6 smoothly.

Yup same here.oO

Im still using mine and when rooted with cyanogenmod it is a much better experiance. Agreed though with Lollipop it kills the performance

I honestly couldn't recommend a 2012 Nexus at half this price.

As others have said the updates made the tablet practically unusable and the battery absolutely dire.

There has to be better options at this price range for a 7" tablet.

We tried giving ours away to a friend last year who didn't have a tablet and they ended up giving it back

Gotta agree with the above comments - I've just had to order a new tablet because mine is now so slow and the battery only lasts a couple of hours max

I took my 2012 Nexus 7 back to kitkat and it still works great.

I followed this androidpit.com/how…xus to take it back to kitkat.

Nice find and as others state runs well on Marshmallow custom Roms

Just installed Cyanogenmod on my old N7. So much better than marshmallow. This thread reminded me about this so thanks all!!

Yeah lollipop ruined my nexus 7, then my son dropped it and smashed it to pieces which didn't help

avoid...update ruined mine so I risked rooting it....fail. I use it as a keyboard cover now for the keyboard I bought as a nexus cover.
