ok, based on the previous review about updating the OS, From Jelly Bean to;
KitKat (4.4Â–4.4.4, 4.4WÂ–4.4W.2)
some are good and negative feedback. I guest i'll stay in Jelly Bean for now. Because, I am not encountering any problem or issues in battery life, GPS, or any sensors. :)
For Jelly Bean feedback from me, it is good, battery life is good, other features are functioning well. Sounds is good. I got 1 heavy graphics game (World Of Tanks Blitz) and 1 medium graphics game (Super Robot Wars). :)
I am now, thinking to upgrade this unit (ASUS NEXUS 7 2nd gen 16GB wi-fi) from Jelly bean to KitKat. Any comments about this part? Is it worth it to upgrade to KitKat? Any issues? thanks!

Marshmallow will be the last major update it receives.
Guys, My ASUS NEXUS 7 2nd gen 16gb wifi, can't install some games in google store. error message: "Your Device is not compatible to this version".. any solutions?
well, now it turned on. lucky me. :) but I didn't check carefully what I've ordered.. I thought this is Wi-Fi + Cellular. It's only Wi-Fi.. now my problem is, how can I sneak this in to my office where Wi-Fi tablet is prohibited. Only WiFi + cellular are allowed. hu-hu-hu. I will test now my games World Of Tanks Blitz! and Super Robot Wars (GUNDAM)! YooHooo!
Today I got my ordered ASUS NEXUS 7" 16GB Wi-Fi, first, excited, 2nd, worried. Unit is not powering on even I press the power button more than 1minute. So what I did is, I plugged in the charger to the unit and saw a blinking white LED on top of the micro UBS port. It blinks 3-4 times then nothing.. I tried to power it on and do the same procedure unfortunately it still not turning on. Now, I am searching for other user opinion about this.. Right now I am charging my unit for about 30 minutes.. I will wait till it gets 60 minutes.. hopefully it turn on.. :S

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.
AnonD-475762, 13 Dec 2015Can nexus 7 2013 update to android M or 6.0 ? Today my nexus 7c 32gb got 6.0.1 update
