    Would not charge pfft

    So, as I only use it for the interweb I bought a cheap galaxy tab!
    Very pleased with it too.
    Now my question how do I update the Android system to latest version please?

    Depends what version of Android is on it already, but it'll be along the lines of:
    Settings
    General
    About Device
    Update Now

    To get to settings:
    Swipe downwards from the top of the screen

    Probably means that Google havent released 5.* for that model of tablet
    I have a couple of tablets here running Android (Tab 3 and a Galaxy Note Pro), both run 4.4.2
    My phone (Galaxy Note 3) is running 5.0

    And therein lies the tale...

    Samsung obviously send out the upgrades to their bigger spending clients first...

    My understanding is the OS will update itself automatically - if the device can take the newer OS, as @Gizmouk said.

    But after the problems I had after my Nexus upgraded you may not want it to! It does now seem to be sorted but it took a factory reset to do it, which turned out to be painless, but I tried all sorts of recommended fixes first.

    Did you look at fixing your Nexus? It is possible for example to replace the battery. There are videos on YouTube covering it.

    Google release lollipop 5 then it's upto Samsung to convert it to their system because it takes them such a long time they then tend to make their new product work with the new release and forget about everyone else but if it's working ok then don't worry about it, just know that your tablet was made for that software at that time ;)

    Had my tab 3 a couple of years now and still running 4.2.2

    Just checked for updates and currently up to date.

    I think the updates are selective depending where you bought the machine.
    buy from an andriod recognised dealer and you get the updates first.
    i bought from an ebay seller so may never get the update.
    bought shirls from america so she stands no chance whatsoever.
