Still Going Strong!
« on: July 15, 2015, 08:05:32 PM »
Just installed a new battery in my Nexus 7.  After three years, this is still my go to tablet.  Anyone else still using theirs on a daily basis?


I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

I handed off my 2012 N7 to my wife, and I've been using the 2nd gen N7. Both still going strong, though the wife's is pretty laggy. I'm curious: Did you change the battery yourself, or have someone else (e.g. a tech service) do it? If you did it yourself, where did you purchase the battery?
Cheers,

Bought the battery on Amazon for $18.  Took me less than 15 minutes to pop the back and change the battery.

Still using mine, but had to replace the screen as half of it had gone into "max headroom" mode. Bought the screen from Amazon and watched all the tutorials on YouTube to work out the minimum dismantle method.
Lollypop sucks on it, so I'm looking into "optipop".
