Got mine the week of release. I dropped it once and the left speaker grill has a chip, and the removable back door creakes in one corner when pressed, but otherwise it's mint. I absolutely love it. I've got it unlocked and flashing has been a joy (partly due to functionality such as the soft keys being placed so stupidly close together on stock) The only performance issues I can recall was on the fresh install of kitkat ota, but I've since gotten it cleared up. It's very nice to hold the large screen and it's very fun to use. I couldn't see myself getting a smaller tablet in the future

Mine dates from the first month of release.

Not a problem or complaint with the device. I do have a leather cover, and have dropped it on concrete from armpit level once. No damage, but not advised.

Mine has held up just fine. Have never dropped it or abused it, though. Use it almost every day for a few hours. I think the battery life is a little less than it was, originally. Had some major slowdown and crash issues after one of the OS updates, but a cache wipe fixed it. I use a Moko thin case and it looks brand new.

I keep mine the same way. Case and screen protector before I even turned it on.

Mine is still running strong. I am tempted by the new tablets coming out but not enough to replace my Nexus 10.

I received mine in Dec 2012, No problems to speak of. Has held up well. I have a couple of scratcheds on the bezel glass that are totally my fault for using a stone coaster to prop it up on my ottoman when i knew Darn well that my dog weighs enough to bump the ottoman. As it stands I dont expect to look for a new tablet until Google stops updating this one.

I bought my tablet the first day. I only mainly use it for web browsing and watching movies. I don't play any really intense games. So, I can't comment on if others would think the processor is under-powered compared to other tablets.

The only thing that hasn't held up is battery life. After a year it no longer holds a full charge. It drops straight to zero and shuts itself down without warning after it gets below 40% battery life.

I am now having the exact same problem at about 1.5 years. I have seen others mention it too. Maybe it is time to replace the battery? I thought it would hold up for at least two years if not longer.

Third Party DIY Nexus 10 Internal Battery Replace & Review - xda-developers

I have had my N10 well over a year now but not 1.5 years just yet and the battery seems to do OK. I use it quite a bit and it still works great. I never leave it plugged in though. I have not used the charger that came with it, I have mostly used the charger which came with my S4 phone and before I got the S4 I used the charger that came with the S3. N10 has been a great tablet for me. Don't know what I will get if I ever decide to replace it. I know it won't be an IPAD though.

As I recall you wasted that money by buying through back channels from God knows who because it was never suppose to be sold in your country in the first place. Who knows what that person did to that tablet before you got it. Always buy NIB and from a legit supplier.

From everything I remember reading your posts you weren't going to have a warrenty because of how you got it and what you did after. So why did it end up going back to Google anyway.

Have a problem with the device turning itself off and then it will not start up ...Read this thread on this forum . It happened twice this week. Can this problem be fixed permanently without going through the lengthy procedure described in the thread?

If your tablet is one of the first sold (been in use a long time), it is likely the dreaded battery wear symptom. It has started happening to me... I will have 80% charge and then it will pop up a message very quickly about battery low and then shut down. Game over- time to charge with "80%" battery left. Many people have reported similar issues. Now I never really know how much battery life I have on the N10, it is annoying. I can understand battery wear after near daily use for 1.5 years, but what I don't understand is why the battery meter is so grossly inaccurate now.

When it gets annoying enough, I suppose I will replace the battery... but that time hasn't happened yet.

I'm still really enjoying mine. I ordered it on launch day and got it a couple days later. I use it everyday and it goes with me pretty much everywhere I go during the workday. I use it at least 2 hours everyday. I use it for gaming, web surfing, social media, Music streaming to Bluetooth speakers, YouTube, TV watching and movie watching & Chromecasting. Its always been in a case since the day I got it. It has a couple small dents on the corners that are visible when out of the case from a couple of drops and always being in my truck or with me when I ride my motorcycle. I feel for how much I use it, where I use it and how long I've had it, it has held up extremely well. I'm really looking forward to the rumored 8 inch Nexus tablet. I've always thought that would be the perfect size for me. There are times when I wish my Nexus 10 was just a bit smaller, but the Nexus 7 its just a bit too small for me.

Meh... Not satisfied with mine. Has always rebooted frequently, now up to daily. Never got speaker issues sorted out, for some reason I can't video chat without the audio breaking up severely. Surprisingly battery life still seems very good. But because of the instability I use it very little.

Have you tried to reset it? I use video chat all the time with no issues. What speaker issue do you have?
