18% cash back from quidco makes this tablet
£138.50



Now I would just need Amazon to pricematch this
Hi, is 16GB enough? I have absolutely no technical knowledge, just noticed that you can get this with 32GB - was just wondering! Just want it for watching movies when travelling and general emails and checking web. Thanks anyone!

The 16GB version will have about 11GB free for the user. If you mostly just stream things and browse the web, it should be enough. People need more storage for when they store local files like music.

The problem is lack of expandable storage. Still tempting though.

Thank you rev6 for explaining clearly - I think it will suit me perfectly! Appreciate your quick response!

The Nexus 9 supports OTG so you can always plug in a USB flash drive for extra storage. Not quite a micro-SD card slot but better than nothing
Tip:

If you want to collect from Argos, use the FastTrack system and pay online (not in store).

That way you have distance selling protection and can return the tablet if you don't like it. Buying in-store or reserving online only allows you to return if faulty.

This is excellent advice!
My Nexus 9 is 16GB and no avoiding that the storage limitation csn be a pain at times, for example, when downloading a movie or TV show and there isn't sufficient space. Using an OTG cable with a memory stick to play stored media works flawlessly every time. It's all worth it though for the truly ace screen, the superfast performance and having pure android lollipop as google intended it to look. Being at the front of the queue for future updates is a bonus. Overpriced when £299 but a bargain at £179.
Google made their annual announcements yesterday and there was no mention of a successor to the Nexus 9 or indeed the (superior IMO) Nexus 7. I was waiting to upgrade my 2013 N7 but am now instead going to consider the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact - it appear to be the 'spiritual successor' to the N7 at least in terms of specs if not price point.
I did try a Galaxy Tab 8.4 S but it was too big and with too much bloat..

If you want to watch downloaded movies when travelling that are actually on the device then you will struggle and be quite limited with a 16 GB device and always wish you had bought a 32gb or one with an external SD slot.
If you mean watch movies through the internet then this will be ideal as long as you have WiFi access.
I often travel abroard with about 25gb of movies and iPlayer programs on my lenovo tablet that has a SD card slot.
I sold my 2013 Nexus because I was fed up deleting files to make room.

These are available on eBay with Argos for the same price with instant collection.

But if you have the 10% code (targeted not everyone has it) then you can save more.

is the battery life any good on this?
i've had enough of samsung tabs - they don't support OS updates for older tablets...

Yes, I see what you mean, we do travel abroad often and would not like to be restricted. Thanks, appreciate your help!

Oh FFS, bought mine 2 weeks ago from Argos for £200.
Stomp stomp stomp.

Couldn't you use an OTG micro USB stick? I've been looking into getting one for my Nexus, seems like a good idea. Cheap too.
Remember you can always use a memory stick or card reader and SD card thanks to the USB OTG support. Really good if you want to carry loads of films with you. 64GB memory sticks are less than £20.
If you are goinv through an airport today, check the dixons price. Their double the difference promise could grab you a bargain if they have not yet updated their price to this... Argos is one of the stores they do. I got a nexus 9 for £104 last time prices came down.

No technical knowledge, all you want it for is movies and email, therefore why do you need one of these??

I bought an otg memory stick stick when I had my nexus and to be honest it worked OK but was a lot of faffing about with another device to loose.
Plus you can't charge your nexus and use the memory stick at the same time.

I don't understand why devices like this don't have more than 1 USB port.

It is a tablet thickness and space are important. Ports eat space needed for bigger batteries.

Google don't want you plugging anything in, they would prefer you use their cloud services.

I doubt internal space is the problem here. I'm not just talking about Nexus devices either.

This is excellent advice!


Though I think you'll find that you'll have to be persistent and quote the laws to the instore manager who'll either dismiss you and get rid of you or contact head office for guidance. Unfortunately these shops tend to think they make the law and can override statutory rights.

Bottom of the page here:

They have a form etc to follow.

So yes, might not be able to return to a store but they have a system for dealing with it.

What do you need to plug into a tablet that can't be covered by Bluetooth?

What do you need to plug into a tablet that can't be covered by Bluetooth?



My X360 controller isn't wireless. USB headphones/DAC. OTG cable for extra storage. Wired mouse/keyboard (maybe possible with a USB hub). And other wired devices. While being able to charge at the same time.
Are there any decent deals on the 32Gb version anywhere?
Lots of comments about using OTG USB memory due to only 16gb on board. It sounds very appealing, but I used a dual port (USB2 + micro USB) with my Nexus 10 whilst travelling this summer. They eat battery due to being 'warm' (OK freaking hot mostly!) when connected to the micro USB port. I didn't find it to be a viable workaround for limited storage v movie/music whilst on the go.
Thanks, I can get a further 7% of that.

so how does it work. Do I need to buy and then ask them to match?
Would this item solve the issue of charging the tablet while using a memory stick?
ebay.co.uk/itm…091
Sorry just read it properly. It can either charge or use OTG but not both at once
Wow this dropped price fast. I remember only last year I couldn't decide between an iPad Air 2 and this when they were roughly the same price.
