The Nexus 7 (2012) was the original Nexus tablet from Google. Released to much fanfare and public excitment the 7″ tablet was a hit with consumers and critics.
The form factor proved a big win, so much so that Apple were forced to copy the smaller size prompting the release of the iPad Mini. The overall spec was like nothing that had been seen pairing a fast processor, top range screen and priced well below the competitors at the time.
Is a Nexus 7 (2012) edition worth buying? The first generation Google tablet is still a great device and there is no doubt it will get used regularly by any owners. Mine still gets used around the house by one family member or another, despite owning newer models too.
If money is no problem, then I would definitely go for the latest model, the updates are worth paying for. However if you get offered a second hand first gen Nexus 7 tablet then it is well worth a look especially as, being a Nexus device, it has received a number of great Android updates since first release.

Nexus 7 (2012) Buyers Guide
The Nexus 7 (2012) is essentially obsolete. The Nexus 7 (2013) was better in every way. You might want one for a custom project, for example if you need a screen for a car dashboard or I’ve even seen one used to create a HUD on their bathroom mirror!
If you are keen to get hold of one for whatever reason then you’ll have to look on ebay. You want to check that the screen is in good condition, no one wants scratches, and hope that the battery hasn’t been done to death – they can’t be replaced without opening up the tablet, and original batteries will be tired by now.Are you looking for the best place to buy a Nexus 7 (2012)?
