    Is it true this model slows down in processing power over time. And does a OTG cable work on this to connect a usb flash drive.

    •  

      My launch Nexus 7 still works as it did back then and I also have a el cheapo OTG from eBay that works fine with USB drives

        ok thanks i will get one now

      It's the IO performance that can slow down over time. It's fundamentally a memory management issue, and Android 4.3 provides a fix for all Nexus devices.

      • +2 votes

        Can confirm this. My N7 slowed down a decent bit since I got it, though after installing 4.3 it's quite snappy again.

      •  

        +1 for this as well, although it was still extremely slow on 4.3. Not sure if it was because I installed custom roms over stock, but installing LagFix (root required) definitely fixed everything

      Not processing power, but flash storage fragmentation and issues with unused areas being unreallocatable slowed them down over the last year. However, Android 4.3 introduced TRIM support which fixes those issues, so people's 2012 Nexus 7's have been springing back to life.

      •  

        I thought flash drives do not have fragmentation problems? But guess I know too little

      •  

        Thought the Linux kernel 2.6+ supported trim, guess not on Android?

        •  

          Supports but not necessarily enabled.
          I know I had to enable it on my desktop running Ubuntu 12.04.

    I was wondering how come they can always get cheap tablets…

    •  

      They have trade-in schemes. They get them, send them to EB HQ, they fully replace the housing make them look new and resell… Unless these are brand new than I have no idea.

      •  

        Surely they can't sell a refurb as "new"?

      • +1 vote

        That's not right. These are not refurbished.

        • +1 vote

          Don't know what everyone else got, but mine was definitely 'refurbished' whatever that means according to Ebgames. I called them up and am sending it straight back. It's not right to buy something stated as NEW and then get something with the seal broken, fingerprints on the screen, and animal fur on the USB charger cable.

    Can someone tell me why I SHOULDNT get this. Please. Ozbargain and my bank balance are not very good friends at the moment.

    Well i bought a Toshiba AT100 32GB 3G - $208 off them and it was NIB. Still going strong.

    This is great tablet, last one I bought was a 16GB refurbished one which looks new anyway. All up I already own 3, everyone in the household has now got one, but I feel like getting another one at this price, maybe for the girlfriend? She's an Apple fanboy, but I am seriously considering of dumping her if she don't convert to Android anytime soon.

    Thanks OP! Great price! Was looking for a deal just like this to upgrade my Mum from the Bing Lee $99 Acer tablet from last year…..which will now become a hand-me-down for my nephew.

    Just found how to read usb flash drives without rooting if it works. http://beforeitsnews.com/science-and-technology/2012/12/how-...

  •  

    Does this have a HDMI port?

    •  

      No. The newer model supports HDMI out through a SlimPort Micro USB to HDMI adapter, but the 2012 one doesn't.

      •  

        Can the old model do AV-out in any way?

        •  

          It should be able to do it wirelessly, through DLNA and whatnot (if you have a compatible TV, that is). But no, it doesn't support any wired video-out through the USB port.

          Miracast should work

        •  

          Last I heard, not even 4.3 gave the 2012 Nexus 7 Miracast functionality. AFAIK, only a few custom ROM's can do it.

    Is it international warranty on these

      i dont think 16 gig extra is worth $70

      •  

        Gotta remember that the nexus 7 has no microsd port. If you're using it as a media player that 16gb fills up pretty quick.

    I literally just bought the New FHD one…. Typing from it right now, this is a good deal!

  •  

    differences between this and the 2nd generations?
    also would this much much better than galaxy tab 7.7 (GT-P6810)?

    • +2 votes

      This and galaxy tab 7.7 were neck and neck last year, and depended on what features you wanted most would tip it either way.

      7.7 was slightly bigger, AMOLED screen, SD card slot.

      old nexus 7 i think had better cpu/gpu than 7.7, plus pure android/latest updates.

      Not sure what version of android the 7.7 is on now.

      Old nexus 7 vs new nexus 7: new has heaps higher screen resolution, better cpu/gpu. same android version, both still don't have SD card slots. new one does have slimport hdmi out through the microusb port.

    Gee i was lucky saw this earlier and messed around then i went to buy one and out of stock. So i checked back a few times then it said in stock i guess someone put in cart and didnt buy so i grabbed it.

  •  

    how miracast works. is there a way to miracast from new nexus 7 2013 or nexus 4 to windows htpc or perhaps android TV stick.

    •  

      Miracast requires a special dongle or built in support in the Tv/Monitor.

      Chromecast is kinda like Miracast and Cheapcast is an app that emulates Chromecast effectively turning an Android Tv stick into a Chromecast.

    Any idea if EBGames retail stores will be offering these for the same price?

    Why can't I just have my Nexus 4? Argh!!!

    Has anyone received their Nexus 7? Tracking info for mine has been stuck at the same spot for days.

    32G now is $208.
    Is it a good price?
    can I price match from officework or Myer/DJ?

    Thanks

  •  

    omg just got mine from post office and its dead wont charge and has no power in battery at all, wont turn on are these things re furbished. Not Happy can i take this back to an eb games shop.

    •  

      Are there any signs that it is refurbished? Cosmetic marks etc.?

      •  

        Pretty sure its new it was wrapped like new and to get the inner box out of the outer cover was so hard. I will fiddle more later and if i cant get working it says on receipt i can get a refund at any eb games store.

  •  

    ok I just received mine. Carefully looked for any signs it was refurbished and didn't see anything definitive. Whilst the clear plastic protecting the glass and back could have been put on a refurb, the unit itself was pretty flawless. No signs of any use on the case, eg. marks, dents, stains etc. Unless of course the outside case is all replaced?

    My unit turned on momentarily, but then switched off due to low battery. I had an existing charger which didn't help charge it, as I recalled the Nexus 7 charger uses a lower amperage/wattage/voltage(?) so using the supplied charger did charge it properly.
