The second-generation Nexus 7 random reboot problems should have been fixed by now considering it has been almost 2 months since we first reported the issues, but this doesn’t seem to be the case if user feedback is anything to go by.
Only in the last few days we have seen Nexus 7 2 owners talking about the random reboot still being a big problem for them. Product Reviews received feedback from one of our readers a couple of days ago and they stated, “I have the reboot issue with my 2013 Nexus 7 and I’m sending mine back to Asus under RMA”.
This user is not alone and we have seen others claiming their Nexus 7 2 reboots randomly every couple of days, and while some people had luck in getting the Android tablet returned to stores after constant rebooting problems, others haven’t been able to take the device back.
