I bought my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet new in the box from a local retailer. I have gotten every single Android update including Marshmallow 6.0 + the latest update which came out before Christmas which is Marshmallow 6.1. You should be getting these updates right from Google since your using an official device. People are completely wrong about this equipment not being able to run the latest Android OS Updates as Google claims the 2013 version of the Nexus 7 will accept their OS Updates for several more year's and maybe even longer. I would contact Google of you continue to have to sideload updates. Everything works perfectly fine for me, running Marshmallow 6.1.
When bought (Nexus 7 II 16GB WiFi), I was happy with it. But after some time, accelerometer and gyroscope passed away and later on it exited entirely (fortunately data backuped). Now I moved to cheaper K007 and all's fine so far (about half a year).
Since flashing to Marshmallow I also have rotation issues, also had to reset it a couple of times due to bootloop - stuck on logo/app optimisation. Its an old tablet now - these new updates are no longer designed for these models!
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2015how? I got bricked at the time of OTA update. at the time of OPTIMAZATION and it was 68 MB. No... moreI had to enter recovery mode, clear the cache and factory reset mine... I was NOT impressed as I lost all of my data and had to re-install and configure all of my apps again.
It seems there's a bug in that if you have disabled ANY Google apps prior to the update, you'll end up stuck in a boot loop.
Maxi, 15 Dec 2015Today my nexus 7c 32gb got 6.0.1 update how? I got bricked at the time of OTA update. at the time of OPTIMAZATION and it was 68 MB. Now its dead.
Now fully updated my N72013 to 6.0.1; I am totally proud and fond of this 'pretty young thing'...
Bobby, 12 Dec 2015Can we call with nexus 7. Micro sim written in specs Plz clarifyMy Nexus 7 (2013) is LTE-enabled but it is for broadband data only, so I can't make calls in the same way as a cell phone. I do, however, call people's phones using the Skype app and that is just as good. I think you can do that with Google Hangouts. too.
Alejo 007, 13 Dec 2015Can nexus 7 2013 update to android M or 6.0 ? Today my nexus 7c 32gb got 6.0.1 update
Alejo 007, 13 Dec 2015Can nexus 7 2013 update to android M or 6.0 ? Alejo 007: Yes. Android 6.0.0 installed on my son's Nexus 7 (2013) 32 Gb version, bought it about 2,5 yrs ago. Nexus is simply a great device.
*Best Battery Life device ever!!*
Im getting up to 9hr on screen battery life from 100% to 20%!
Still running CM11(Kitkat) and after 2 years usage battery life is still rocking solid!
It has been working excellent for the last 2 years and then the battery just died!
I wish Google didn't stop making the Nexus 7 line, it's probably the best tablet in the market. Perfect size for 2 hazded gaming, perfect size for reading, and web surfing. I think 7 inches is the sweet spot when it comes to tablets. I just hope Google makes a 2016 edition with a 4k screen and snapdragon 820 processor, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Great piece of kit, have it 2 years and hasn't failed me! I also game on it.
6.0 Marshmallow update crashed my tablet. Now it stays frozen on the Google logo during boot up. Contacted Asus, was told it would cost $201.75 just for them to look at it. Only had it 2 years and 3 months, very disappointed! >:/
Got my update 6.0 via OTA, WOW, the battery draining problem is gone :-), the tablet is faster
