> In reply to SamsaraGuru @ 2014-12-22 09:28 from jCqY - click to readThanks a lot for helping me out. I thought only my n7 2012 hasnt received OTA update due to some problem... as 2 of my colleagues already have android 5.0 in their n7..so I was worried... they might have flashed the rom on their own, I guess, if asus hasnt released OTA... Also sir, I would like to ask you one more question..how much screen on time you get for the battery to drain from 100% to 5%? I get close to 3hours and 15 mins screen on time on gaming and surfing. Is this normal?

I think the wisest course of action is for us to wait until Asus has the build properly attuned to our tablets rather than jump the gun, and install the factory build and find out that we just have to undo it later.

Though it always is nice to know that one has the latest operating system, truth be told, we probably would have a hard time telling the difference. If Asus has not yet released lollipop over the air, is probably because there is a good reason that they are fine tuning it to make sure that we don't end up with problems someone in another comment here mentioned about how it is slow down his tablet he had to reinstall Kit Kat.

There is no more important virtue nor quality of character that we can cultivate and which we must master then patience

Upgraded from an ipod touch 4g. Browsing is faster,yes, but gifs load very slowly. Flash is pretty slow too but fluid once started. Must turn wifi off with bluetooth headphones (same issue on ipod) or playback is intermittent. Good battery life. Can last 4 days with minimal use. Gaming is flawless. Screen makes funny sounds when pressed but good construction nonetheless. Do not recommend lollipop, i downgraded to kitkat too. Charges reaaaly slowly. Don't think the asus charger provides more than 800ma, though it's rated at 2A. Best bargain at 130 usd! New nexus is far more fragile and scratches easily.

Great tablet although I had to roll back from lollipop it completely slowed and spoiled my tablet, it's not hard to re-flash back to kitkat and then it's back to being fast again.

My Nexus 7 2012 is now an aggravating piece of junk since lollipop, even after a factory reset. Every system, process, or app has screwed up consistently. Time for a new tablet. (Or was that the plan all along?)
Does it work on new tablets?

Hi guys ! I updated my nexus 7 to lollipop when the ota update cane. Just as everyone else my tab got stuck and was very slow. Finally I have found the solution to get back the old smooth kit kat like experience. These are the steps I followed.
1.uninstall all the aops I don't use regularly.
2.update all the apps via Googleplay store.
3. Hold the power button for around 15 sevs where the device will automatically shut down and restart.

Another thing to absolutely follow is IF you open a guest profile close it as soon as you finish using it as it slows the tab a lot. As soon as I closed my guest profile !y tab was back to usual performence.


I read after backing up the data doing a factory reset also helped some users but so far the above !method has
