can anyone who installed lollipop tell us about it like its pros & cons and if we should install it or wait till another update ????
Fed of Google's negligence for Lollipop update for N7 2013 LTE, installed Cyanogen Mod 12 (device code name deb).
Easy Quick Steps
1) Unlock Bootloader (Nexus Root Toolkit)
2) Install Clockwork Mod (Nexus Root Toolkit)
3) Make Nandroid Backup from your new recovery for safety.
4) Download CM12 Nightly(deb) and GAPPS keep it on your device.
5) Boot into recovery, wipe cache n all
6) Install zip - first CM12 nightly (should be very quick)
7) Install zip - then Gapps
8) Reboot and done :)
With CM12 - everything's working but GPS. Cellular with LTE working :)

Google isn't worried about updating the N7 2013 LTE. If you want lollipop you'll need to root, twrp recovery and install the LL 5.0.1 ROM for codename deb. Also be sure to flash the "flo" 4.04 boot loader before flashing the ROM. We don't even have factory lollipop for the N7 2013 LTE in the USA. Google doesn't give a flying f***!
Do not install lolipop. My tablet became imposible to use, browsers crash, battery drains like crazy, it takes around 2 seconds for the screen to start, etc. Got 5.0.2 yesterday and some problems are gone, but better wait for 5.1

I bought Nexus 7 2013 32gb wifi last month, still dint receive lollipop!! :(
I'm using this device from few months. This is one of the best tablets in terms of display clarity, performance and battery life. I'm on lollipop 5.0.1 recently(downloaded factory image from google developers website, and they also provided flashing instructions). The new lollipop is great as it gives additional 3 hours of battery more than previous versions and the ui os also great. I mainly got this tab to read ebooks, and it gives over 15 hours battery on moon reader, like 2 days. you could turn on battery saver to add extra hours usage(which i usually do, with brightness slightly increased). But video recording is not that great due to low frame rates, not good enough video stabilization and auto focus. no complaints about photos though.

i intend to buy it this month and am worried about battery.. plz explain wat is the problem wz the battery as how long it lasts and wats ur usage ???
Awesome tablet. Got it since it was released, and it still works really well! It costs really little money, but it is one of the best 7" tablets. The only problems are the overheating and battery life. Overall it is worth more than its price.

Since the native way you won't support it out of the box you'll need some app like stickmount whereas with a custom ROM you'll be find
