    My wife has a Nexus 7, and I don't know which type she has. I see that Android 5.xxx is in there. How do I find this info?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    All it says in "Model Number" is Nexus 7...Build number is LRX22C.

    Does this help?

    Thanks

    If it has a camera on the back it's a 2013. If no camera, it's a 2012.

    Hi

    The 2013 has a camera on the back, the 2012 does not.

    ^^^That. If you have a lense on the top right on the back, its a 2013 model. Also, the back of the 2012 model is sort of dimpled where the 2013 model is smooth.

    It has a camera (2013)...Could only give out one best answer (3 the same), so I gave it to the first one to answer.

    Thank You all very much. :D:p:)

    I have the 2012 one. I did not really see a reason togo to the 2013 one, the difference was not worth the update. I might be getting a new one soon though.

    I've just got a 2013 one. The difference is amazing. No more waiting for a minute when I change the orientation of the screen, which is what happened on the 2012 after it got Lollipop. No more apps crashing.
