YES and it's awesome. Right now I am playing the Room 2, Slender Man, Dr. Who game and yes it has a Google Play store. It has great games that I have tried yet, but going to. All those games you have to pay for, but they are like 2 or 3 dollars. If you like Final Fantasy games they have a few of them on there, Dead Space, which I was surprised in that. They graphics are awesome. I don't see any lag or any sign of slowness in game play. I think the most expensive game I have seen was 15.99 and so far, I think it's worth it.

It could be a "refurbished" model or it could be the 1st generation. This is the 2nd generation. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing the difference between the 2 as the brief description header does not change. If you compare the specs in the full description you will see the difference.

Simple....the 16GB with the higher price is for the 2013 model which also has a higher resolution screen and dual cameras, the 32GB with the Lower price came out in 2012 and only has one camera (rear) and a lower resolution screen, Both Tablets are now running on the latest android OS which is 4.4

I think that the 32gb one that is for $189 is the older version. The operating system is an older version (4.1 jellybean) on the 32gb and this one is the newer 4.3 jellybean.

The processor and a few other things are updated as well.

for taking pictures this tablet (next generation 2013 Nexus7) is not bad. I wouldn't rate it excellent but I would say it's definitely good. You can also upload a free cartoon camera app that is quite fun. But I would not use this as my go to camera. Also, this has both a front and a rear facing camera which makes it very flexible when taking pictures.

Nothing special for photos. But my guess is that if you are using this for a camera you are not a professional as this would be sacrilege. I think for the in the moment area, this serves it's purpose.

however, I am not a pro either and do not try to diagnose the picture for flaws. There is no flash though, so low light may not be all that great.

Its not the best but its not the worst. You could compare it to any 5MP camera phone but definitely not the iPhone or Lumia 41MP. Although it does have panoramic and 360 camera shots its just a tablet and works great for things like Skype.

While tablet cameras are usually not as good as the high end phones, the 5MP camera on the Nexus 7 has been excellent for use at work and home to document my activities and family... color well saturated, accurate color reproduction, sharp focus.... a very good tablet camera!

They will ask you for a Google account. If you do not have one, you will have to create one. If you are familiar with Android devices and use them. You log in with that account.

If you have never used Android software before then it can be a bit daunting. However if you have any ability to use computers then you will quickly figure it out and there is tons of how to do advice on line.

This was how I found out how to set up multiple user profiles.

sadly there is no manual for any modern tablets. Think in 3 phases:
1. how to use hardware (Power button etc this is learned via a tutorial on the device)
2. how to use the os (play with it)
3. what can I do with it (Use your imagination then start reading online and figure out how to get it done.

In order to mimic your phone you'd need an app that does that.

With the Wi-Fi version it would require an internet connection and several apps and services as a workaround. With the 3G version it might be possible with simply Google Voice or a similar app and the phone number from your cell phone. I have only tried with the Wi-Fi version.

It's good, but I certainly wouldn't expect it to perform as a replacement for a high quality video camera.

This is the 2013 2nd edition. If you mean can you record video via the camera, then yes you can. If you mean record things you are viewing on it. Then I am not sure.

There is no video camera app on the device. However I did find a App that helps you access that option. See the link below. I believe you can get to it via the camera function though. It just may not be straight forward.
