    This December has been interesting! Been saving up all year for something cool tech wise - had a few thousand dollars

    However I ended up with some medical bills and lose almost all my money

    Spent what I had left on an ipad 3rd gen....but it was a lemon and I sent it back......didn't want to go through the hassle of repairs as I was fed up.

    Checked out a few tablets here and there - was hoping for the nexus 7 but the 199$ was sold out - and I felt very iffy ordering anything online again (after the ipad hassle)

    so a sad sento and my dad went browsing in the mall....and we stopped Walmart - and WOW they had the nexus 7 32 gb...yeah it was 249 full price - but I didn't mind....i decided to buy it! and i tell yeah this thing is awesome - it met all my expectations and even my dad loves it!

    I am disappointed that it doesn't have a rear camera....anyone else? but who cares - it was meant for me, it chose me like harry potters wand chose him...and i shall treasure it!

    so yeah life is tough, but every once in a while it throws you a break...still gotta lotta tension with financial issues (medical bills, insurance over payments - etc) but just trying to take it one day at a time, focus on the present - and taking things as they come and what I can do right NOW.

    I have heard of this but mine has never experienced this issue. I have a 16 GB version.

    To answer your question about the camera, I gave my son and grandson each an N7 32GB (I already had one), and neither one of them or myself miss the rear camera. Actually, I have no use for the camera that it has.

    Don't focus on what it can't do. But what it can do!
    Loving mine from day one and only thing I don't really like is the speakers. Nice set of headphones, problem solved.

    Glad to hear you are happy with you n7. I like mine, but it is kind of glitchy compared to my iPad. Most of the issues I have are related to WiFi switching from access points.

    Regarding the rear camera I never use the one on my iPad, so I can't imagine using one on the n7

    Which app is a good replacement for the "play movie and TV" App? I'm guessing that's the video player but I hate all the suggestions and the way it.is. I'd like a App that works on n7 that can play avi, MPEG and etc...

    As for the music.player mine came loaded with a bunch of "free music" can I just delete them? Do y'all like the music play App or would u recommend something else?
    thanks

    True, you may never personally have a need, but consider this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho....php?p=2471616

    To the OP, enjoy your N7 and here's hoping for a healthier and less financially straining 2013. Good luck!

    should I update to 4.1.2? I feel scared in case it screws up or something...

    Also, how is file managing when you plug it into a computer? On my Optimus V I would wipe the delete stuff on the SD card a lot, and I don't want to accidentally delete something on my n7 and have it stop working.

    thanks

    you mean 4.2.1?? I would say update it. the worst that could happen is you have to do a factory reset to fix issues.
    better do it now than later when its ok to do a factory reset.

    google updated to 4.2 and then they have an update to 4.2.1.

    here is the first thing i did when i got my Nexus 4 and nexus 10.

    connected to wifi but didn't login with my gmail id and password.
    updated the software to latest(twice, there were two updates) factory reset it and then logged in as normal.
    No issues what so ever so far.

    So if i factory reset it will go back to 4.1.1 or whatever?

    because

    Thanks, BTW if I do a factory reset, (I'm not rooted or anything) will it take me back to 4.1.1? I don't mind if it does, just curious.
    Nope. It'll just delete all the data on it, making it just like it's fresh out of the box.

    Swipe down from the right upper side to pull down the quick settings menu. Tap the Auto Rotate icon to lock/unlock screen rotation.

    Keep in mind that some apps force rotation even if rotation for the N7 is locked. Other apps just don't rotate even if rotation is enabled. And other apps just go with the flow! For controlling how individual apps rotate, and even to force a non-rotating app to rotate, install the Ultimate Rotation Control app.

    if you update to 4.2.1 and do a factory reset it will remain in 4.2.1. the only thing that will be deleted is user data.

    Assuming you're using a PC, it's pretty much like exploring any drive on your computer using Windows Explorer. You always have to be careful about what you're moving around and deleting, even on your computer, but it's no more complex when browsing the N7. I don't think you have access to critical operating system files, so no worries there. Just stick with your media and document files, and you'll be fine.

    By the way, an alternative to Windows Explorer is an app called AirDroid. This is a free app.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....sand.airdroid

    AirDroid let's you wirelessly control your N7 or any Android device using the internet browser on your computer (your computer and N7 must be on the same network). It provides a very nice and simple interface on your computer that basically lets you operate your N7 from your computer, including allowing you to wirelessly transfer files between your computer and Nexus 7, meaning no USB cable is used. The advantage is that the interface for doing this is even easier than using Windows Explorer. The disadvantage is that if you are transferring files, the transfer is slower than connecting with a USB cable.

    I've had this problem, but no reference of the 20% level, my battery registers 0% and I am just leaving it plugged in for a while to see what happens. I got the unit about 3 months ago, used it for a while and set it aside. Just tried to restart today, and there's no battery power. I came to this group via a Google search and currently just letting it charge. I wonder... the battery icon appeared for about 15 seconds and disappeared, so I am not sure if it is actually charging. Anyone know about this--no light "on" or other indication of "charging?"
