Can't imagine this thing even existed. Whaat??!!! And was out of reach for a younger me. Smartphone tech really becomes redundant fairly quickly.

There is an LTE option for this device. Not to be rude, but these specs are a bit incomplete.

I had this tablet with android 5.1.1 and it was unusable: too slow, it almost got thrown across the room on many an occasion. Factory reset helped a little but not much. I rooted it and installed android 7 AOSP from here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-7/development/rom-android-7-aosp-grouper-t3467514
It is not a trivial process: I used Nexus root toolkit to root the device and load TWRP recovery firmware on.

All I can say about the new firmware is WOW. This is a completely different device and is actually usable for light tasks. It will bog down when loading snazzy webpages or applications for the first time but catches its breath after a few moments.

Still using this in 2020, 8 years after I first bought it. It's obviously not as fast as new devices but it still does the job I want for it (ie reading ebooks in bed, web surfing, etc). I've also upgraded the OS to Cyanongenmod, which gave it a new lease of life.
