Deal: 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) Plus Free Leather Case on Sale for $129 Today Through eBay

nexus 7 deal

We don’t know if Google will ever release another Nexus 7 tablet. In fact, the only rumors of a new Nexus tablet center around an HTC-made device with a metal body and an 8.9-inch display. So if you plan to buy a Nexus 7, like last year’s model, you are quickly running out of time. Google has sold out of almost all versions of the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play without re-stocking them for weeks. The only two available are the 32GB LTE model in black or the 16GB WiFi-only version, both of which go in and out of stock on the daily.

If the 16GB WiFi-only version is of interest, hit up eBay’s daily deal today. You can grab a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for $129, but that also includes a free leather case and free standard shipping. The device retailed brand new for $229. Not a bad deal.

  • zizo79

    Just bought a 32GB new for $159 at Staples. There is a $100 off coupon for clearance tablets. Some people were able to score the 2012 N7 for $50.

  • Deepak Dulal

    Okkkk

  • Jacob Kim

    Anyone else notice the Apple USB Charging Cable in the photo w/ the leather case? Lol.

  • pyro74boy .

    I would buy a high-end Android tablet any day over the stupid Apple ipod. LOL

  • James Briano

    This is a good deal; a great device for reading.

  • Raven65

    Great deal on a device that will be useful for years to come regardless of what the next gen of shiny new tech brings. I still use my first-gen/2012 N7 every single day… or should I say night. I use it to read books, email, forums & social media and watch TV shows & movies on every night after getting in bed. If/when it dies, I’ll buy another one immediately.

  • JeffColorado

    You really need to mention in the header that this is a refurbished product. It’s not new.

    • Suicide_Note

      It says it’s manufacturer refurbished in the article itself.

  • pyro74boy .

    I don’t see the reason why anyone would want to buy any hardware from 2013 and with Android L right around the corner unless you’re someone who does not care about the tech then maybe then.

    • Droid Ronin

      Android L should run fine on most 2013 hardware.

      • pyro74boy .

        I’m not saying it won’t I I just fail to see why anyone who likes tech would want to buy hardware that is already a year old. But that’s just me.

        • Joe J

          Loves “tech” but a year old lol . A YEAR!

        • http://www.naskaras.com/ Thanassi Karageorgiou

          I love tech. But I value certain tech over other tech. Example: I was in the market for a 60″ TV a couple of years ago. I didn’t care about 3D, 120htz, SmartTV’s or any other bells and whistles because I knew I’d be attaching a chromecast or Roku or something to it. I bought a year-old LG plasma on an after-christmas sale for $700 shipped. I saved over 60% on the original cost and the TV performs like a beast.

          Same thing with tablets. Not everyone needs android L out of the box. Most folks just want to easily consume media on their tablets regardless of specs.

        • DanSan

          *insert apple product owners here*

    • JeffColorado

      LOL, the 2013 Nexus 7 has awesome hardware…it will handle Android L easily. My nexus 4 probably will too. Android L will run on anything that can run Kitkat. The Moto E is getting Android L, and that is not a high end phone.

      • pyro74boy .

        I’m not trying to make any claim whatsoever that Android L won’t run good on 2013 hardware I just fail to see why anyone would want to spend their money on hardware that is already a year old. I think people can better invest their money on 2014 hardware. Just my two cents for whatever it’s worth .

        • ToddAwesome

          I believe that it’s the cents that are important here, some people don’t want or need the latest tech. I know that’s hard to understand for most of the DL community, but if you’re not a power user, the 2013 model is perfectly acceptable.

          • pyro74boy .

            I guess that if you’re on a budget then I can see your point. But with that being said with websites like Amazon around you can buy just about everything at a very low price. If you don’t care about tech then you won’t care if your phone was made this year or last year I get that and for the most part I agree with you.

          • Joe J

            With android l or 4.4.4 the nexus 7 runs fast and will be an excellent throw around tablet that will be useable for years to come

          • pyro74boy .

            maybe for a few short years but not much longer then that because tech is changing faster then ever before and after a while your going to see a noticeable difference in performance on old devices running the latest and greatest software and if newer software runs like crap on older hardware then I don’t want it in the first place.

          • Joe J

            android l isnt even out but you can have it on the nexus 7. this cost 129 bucks and my nexus 7 2012 with 4.4.4 rooted runs all daily tasks as fast as my g3 one plus one nexus 5 android l .

          • pyro74boy .

            Lets see you make this same claim that your 2012 hardware is going to run 2016 software just as good in 2016 as brand new hardware running the latest version of Android. LOL sooner or later hardware is going to become outdated on your device I don’t care if it’s a nexus device or not this is a fact of life. So don’t quit your day job thinking this way. It some point the overall user experience is going to suck.

          • Joe J

            You still a boy in the way you think.

          • pyro74boy .

            I have done my homework this is not based on how I think this is based on facts. Really if what you where claiming was even true [It's not] then why have even older Nexus devices stop receiving software updates? because newer software is going to run like CRAP on older devices. LOL

          • Joe J

            Did you do your google research? Wow. Nice. Well let me tell you my research. I was a cell dealer for over 5 years for tmobile att cingular sprint nextel and verizon. My other company deals with millions of end of life tech. I have personally owned over 20,000 cell phones. yes owned. My nexus 2012 will run what it needs perfectly fine for the next few years. This 2013 model will do what any other tablet will do for years to come. My lg g3 is currently ranked #1 in geekbench over any g3 in the world yet my “old tech” nexus 7 runs right along with the g3

          • pyro74boy .

            And when did I ever claim to be an expert? oh that’s right I never did. If you’re trying to make some sort of stupid statement that your comments has more value vs mine given the fact that you work in the wireless tech then that was very silly of you because nothing in anything that you just said proves any of my valid points wrong. I made a valid statement and now you trying to insult my intelligence and get off topic. LOL Nexus phones get outdated just like any other phone and that’s a fact that you seem to have a very hard time excepting. I bet you’re one of these people trying to put kitkat on the very first Nexus phone. LOL Oh and you also are aware that benchmarks can be flawed in so many different ways and none of them show these phones performing real world everyday tasks. That’s why I laugh at the isheep claiming that their iphone5s is faster vs the high-end Android phones based only on benchmark scores. We also found out from companies like Samsung that many of these benchmarks are fake. Your quoting benchmarks and I’m talking about real world that’s two completely different things.

          • Joe J

            First off iphone 5s is the fastest. 64 bit lighter os. i have the iphone 4 4s 5 5s . ipad 1 2 Ipad air and mini retina. You make statements without any hands on time with stuff. Vaporware. I have hands on time with many units. daily. Nexus 4 no. Nexus 5 yes. Also im talking about real world use. And yes my nexus 7 2012 runs fast

          • pyro74boy .

            You’re still missing my point when people have tested these two devices [Me included] they could not tell the difference in the smoothness between the iphone5s and the Android phone we where testing with the naked eye. Also trying to compare iOS to Android in terms of performance is not even comparing apples to apples because the iphone is setup to run completely different vs phones running the Android O.S. So of course on paper the Iphone5s runs faster because it’s setup to be used as easy as possible vs Android that is setup to run for the power user who wants to do many different things at the same exact time. So it’s not even a fair comparison because iOS and Android are setup for two completely different types of users.

          • Joe J

            Tested smoothness? what are your metrics in fastest? LOL you need to do more research. I have and had every iphone and ipad since they were first released. I also have a few nexus 7 galaxy tab s 8.4 and a few other tablets. Point blank the 64bit soc in the iphone 5s is faster than android socs coupled with a lighter os. I’m done .

          • pyro74boy .

            Faster at doing what? I too have tested the iphone5s vs phones running Android and at the very least the Android phone I was using was just as fast and smooth vs the iphone5s performing the same exact tasks so please don’t make me laugh because if the iphone5s was faster vs the device that you where using then it’s not being seen with the naked eye. So keep on quoting your benchmarks. LOL Also like I said before these two operating systems are setup to run in a very different way. On one hand you have an O.S that is setup to run as easy as possible and on the other hand you have Android that is setup to be used with features that depend much more on processor performance so this is why the 5s scores better on a benchmark and lets face it these benchmarks already have people like you fooled because even experts have admitted that they can’t tell the difference in CPU performance between iOS and Android when they where using the phones performing real world everyday tasks and I’m quoting them saying this not me. LOL Trust me I know lag when I see it as I have used Android phones that lagged so bad that I never wanted to use them ever again.

          • Joe J

            oh pyro boy you know nothing. The64bit a7 chip has been the fastest chip for a longtime. Apple renders web pages faster than android. You and your lame metric of seat of the pants no lag etc. GTFO I have both and yes android has caught up alot of ways thanks to project butter and lowering resource demands. With your “not going to be relevant in 2016″ No phone tablet will be relevant since by then we will all be on on 64bit android processors.

          • pyro74boy .

            You’re going to claim that I know nothing but yet I have even tested these devices for myself and you have no answer for anything I have said you just keep on saying that it’s faster with no hardcore facts supporting anything you said. And being that you can’t speak for me and the rest of the world then you can’t claim that I’m wrong. I don’t just run my mouth just for the hell of it and don’t go around posting links to benchmark scores. I go by what I know to be true and what I read about and what the experts have even said. Are you even reading all of my posts or I you just replying back with nonsense without even reading all of my posts? because what I have said is true and you can’t claim one phone is faster vs the other because these two O.S run completely different and the truth of the matter is that regardless of what the benchmarks scores say the naked eye can’t tell the difference in performance between smoothness and performance on an iOS vs Android device. My friend even has the iphone5s and my phone is almost two years older and we both admit that both phones perform very well and smooth in fact when it came to voice commands my phone responded a good 3 to 4 seconds before siri did. My phone never lagged behind in anything it did when compared to my friends iphone5s so sell this CRAP TO someone else because I’m not buying your lies.

          • Joe J

            Yes i’m not reading all the jibberish you wrote.

            First off you are the one that said why would anyone buy this 2013 tablet when there are 2014 tablets. Answer : because it $130 bucks and with android 4.4 5 it runs fast for any media consumption.

            Second With every revision of android. Google has decreased system resources and increased responsiveness ie project butter ART runtime. So even phones with old socs and 512mbs of ram can run 4.4

            Third the Nexus line gets the fastest support and android L isnt even out but the nexus 7 has it so its good for years.

            Fourth Your D*mbass brought up apple and how its slower than android but now you are saying how can we compare the two?

            Fifth what crap am i trying to sell? Unlike your ANDROID fan pyro boyism I have phones from windows apple and android.

            Now go do some more research because I’m reading your other comments and you’re coming off clueless

          • pyro74boy .

            Clueless is what you are when you claim that your Nexus device that was made in the year 2012 is going to run just as good or better vs newer hardware. I replied back to you and told you that in a few short years your device will need to be upgraded because newer software won’t run as good on older hardware vs newer hardware and never gave me any sort of hardcore facts supporting this all you did was quote a benchmark but gave me NOTHING proving this in the real world and had no comeback whatsoever and then tried to make it look like just because you worked in a wireless phone store makes you some sort of an expert and where trying to add value to your bias. LOL You NEVER ONCE had any true comeback for anything I said regardless of what your narrow mind seems to think. I gave you valid points supporting everything I said and the best you could do was insult my intelligence and claim that I’m a fan-boy. Also the true experts seem think the same as I do and yet you claim to have worked in the wireless industry for 6 years. Yep you’re one of those people when you come up to me and ask me if you can help me with anything I will say nope I will let you know when I need your help.

            Yes read before replying back again it just makes you look real dumb.

          • Joe J

            First off Im not one of those people that come and ask you if you need help. I’m one of those people where at&t wireless headhunted me and where t-mobile offered me a Master dealership. I’m also one of those where corporate tmobile exec use to call me for fast answers. So many thing you have said are false. Yet you are still here lying to yourself. Also Yes my nexus 2012 with 4.4.4 opens apps butter smooth and on par with my one plus one. I use it often. The nexus 2013 at 130 is an excellent deal and is also FAST. there is no carrier bloat or skin ontop. Its pure android dummy. I have pointed out all your incorrect info yet you still live in this make believe world where you tested your droid with your friends iphone 5s so android must be faster

          • pyro74boy .

            Okay you never said that all you said was you worked there so how was I to know this? You should have been more clear because when you said your a cell dealer that could mean anything. LOL

            I said and I quote [Lets see you make this same claim that your 2012 hardware is going to
            run 2016 software just as good in 2016 as brand new hardware running the
            latest version of Android. LOL sooner or later hardware is going to
            become outdated on your device I don't care if it's a nexus device or
            not this is a fact of life. So don't quit your day job thinking this
            way. At some point the overall user experience is going to suck.]

            Your reply was and I quote [You still a boy in the way you think.]

            You had no comeback for this whatsoever the best you could do was try to insult me and act stupid. So please quit with your nonsense because you’re doing the exact same thing that you accuse me of doing and have no leg to stand on. LOL

          • ToddAwesome

            It’s also a good choice if you want something you don’t have to be overly careful with, given the price you paid. My 2012 N7 recently crapped out, so I’m debating this. I’m someone who generally wants the latest and greatest in tech, but when it comes to a tablet that I want to fart around with, or let my kids borrow, you can’t beat this price.

          • pyro74boy .

            True very True. I have had bad luck with HTC hardware myself and can’t see myself buying anything made by HTC ever again. I’m also not hating on them because both the M7 and M8 look like great devices but after having not one but two brand new HTC devices fail on me unless then six months time I can’t see buying from then again regardless of brand name.

          • ToddAwesome

            HTC? We’re talking about the N7, right?

          • pyro74boy .

            True very true.

          • Joe J

            The m7 and m8 are worlds better than any previous htc device. You’re missing out

          • pyro74boy .

            They are both great devices but I have a hard time giving HTC my money after having bad luck with them the first two times around. I like my Note2 for the time being. I will however be upgrading to something else before October 1st.

          • Joe J

            Ah it all makes sense you are using a note 2 so you arent aware of where 2014 phones stand. I also have a note 2 and im using it as a remote lol

          • pyro74boy .

            Don’t make me laugh I have tired all of the new phones this year the M8 GS5 and LG G3 and I’m waiting to test both the new Moto X and Note 4. The Note 2 as old as it is can still hang with the best of them it’s in no way as good as the newer phones and I’m not trying to claim that it is but it’s the very first phone that has ran this smooth for me with outstanding battery life in the performance was so good that I returned back the Note3 to the store and kept what I felt was the better performing phone the GN2. Samsung bloatware on the N3 drove me crazy to the point where this was noticeable lag on the Note3 when compared to the Note 2. So it was very dumb of you to assume that I have not used any phones that where made in 2014 or even 2013 for that matter.

          • Joe J

            I was one of the first in america to have the note 1 (international exynos) in fact i still have 2 note 1 and 2 note 2s. I also skipped the note 3 because it wasnt a great improvement. But you know what is? the LG G3. Want to know something else? The nexus 7 runs faster than your note 2. So for 130 bucks its a damn good deal

          • pyro74boy .

            Well I should hope that it runs faster it’s a newer device so what are you trying prove to me?. Newer hardware should always run faster vs older hardware because it’s newer and more up to date. This is why I returned my Note 3 and got a refund because the Note2 ran much faster vs the Note 3. Saying that a newer device runs faster vs an older device is not really saying all that much because that’s why people upgrade if a device that is newer still performs slower then what you already have then what would be the point of upgrading in the first place. This is why I kept at least what I feel is the better between the two. I should not have to spell this stuff out to someone like you who claims to work as a wireless phone dealer. LOL

          • Joe J

            You should open up the nexus 7 and see the battery connection. The nexus 7 was prone to having the battery wires disconnect

        • Junior

          It’s worth two cents. Or less.

        • Christopher Moore

          2 reasons. The support these Nexus tabs receive is legendary compared to other Android devices.
          2nd would have to be the price. This is a $100 difference for a nice tablet. I see this tablet still receiving support for another year; at least.

          • pyro74boy .

            True but my point was and still is that at some point the older Nexus devices are going to stop getting updated as well. This sad little story that old hardware running newer software is going to run just as good or better is nonsense after a few short years everything needs to be upgraded to be used the way it was made to perform and with that being said when the latest and greatest versions of Android come out the people that make the software are looking at future devices not a devices that where made 4 or 5 years ago. I don’t care if my current phone can run Android L if it’s going to run like crap and lag then I don’t want it on my old hardware and will upgrade to a new device. Nexus owners this rule does include you as well.

  • Detonation

    “So if you plan to buy a Nexus 7, like last year’s model, you are quickly running out of time.”

    Most major retailers are still selling them, and there was always be the used market which has tons of them. Definitely not running out of time to buy one any time soon.

  • EricMayBell

    Type in CSAVENOW at checkout for an additional 10% off. The total is $116.99. I have to jump on that deal.

    • AZ

      Worked for me. Good looking out Eric.

      This will be my first tablet. I’ve never really had the need but at this price point I couldn’t pass it up.

  • Michael Contreras

    I just don’t see a reason to buy a tablet these days when I have my phone as my go-to device for quick browsing and so on. I used to have the first gen N7 tablet but sold it a year later because I didn’t see myself using it all too often. It may be perfect for older people who don’t use computers that often for anything extensive outside of browsing the web, going on facebook and checking email. Same thing with smartwatches, I just feel like they’re not an extension to your phone, it’s just another device to spend $250 on. I just don’t know any reason these days to get additional devices that don’t seem to trump over smartphones that are basically swiss army knives.

    • Suicide_Note

      I use mine all the time at home, and use my phone mostly when I’m on the go. Reading magazines, news sites, gaming, all are easier on a bigger screen. I also use it to cast content to my Chromecast. It’s a nice little workhorse.

  • T4rd

    Anyone play Clash of Clans on these? Does it play pretty well as far as not having to zoom around while deploying troops? Been considering a tablet just for this game, hah.

  • Christopher Moore

    I bought this tablet at the same cost minus the leather sleeve from the same people. No issues at all.

  • M3D1T8R

    Don’t want the leather case, but this is a heckuva deal. (Using my 32GB N7 ’13 about a year now.)
