Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review: In Depth
5 December 2013
Conclusion: If anyone ever wondered why Google didn’t bestow the coveted Nexus status upon the XOOM from Motorola, it’s because it wasn’t ready for it. The Nexus brand signifies quality and a combination of geekery and consumer usability. The Google Nexus 10 by Samsung is the first 10-inch straight tablet running Android that strikes that balance. No keyboard docks or S-Pens, this is standalone good. Don’t get us wrong, the OS still needs to improve.
Pros: Reasonably priced, Excellent screen, Android 4.2 is best version so far
Cons: Tablet app choice is limited next to iPad, OS still needs improvement
Excerpt: Google Nexus 10 is a 10.1-inch tablet which screen has a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels, 5-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and flash, 1.9-megapixel front-facing one, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 16 or 32 GB of built-in storage, while Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is running the show.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Excerpt: Alongside a reasonably attractive (if a little plain) industrial design the Nexus 10 packs a world-first feature in its 2560 x 1600-pixel display based on Samsung’s own PLS tech. That smashes through Apple’s iPad Retina record (at 2048 x 1536 pixels) – for pixel counters that gives the Nexus a pixels per inch (ppi) count of 300 compared to the iPad’s 263ppi. At that kind of resolution it’s admittedly rather difficult to tell the difference between the two however.
Google Nexus 10 – Google’s bid to dominate the tablet market
6 February 2013
Conclusion: The price of the Nexus 10 is especially enticing – for all the specs and the awesome display, you will still be paying $100 less than the iPad 4. The pricing starts at $399 for the 16 GB version and $499 for the 32 GB version – if you want the best tablet there is, this is it.
Summary: To conclude, the Nexus 10 is an amazing device. The build is great, the design is sleek, the hardware is impressive especially the display, and it has the performance you’d expect from an elite Android tablet. Compared to the iPad, it is definitely lighter, thinner and has a better display in terms of pixel density. It is also cheaper compared to other tablets plus, being a Nexus device, you can be sure that it gets timely updates.
Summary: High-end meets budget. Google throws down the gauntlet and challenges Apple and Microsoft with its new offering. The Nexus 10 offers up-to-date hardware and a high-res 10.1-inch screen for a price starting of 400 Euros ($530). Is it the perfect gadget for the living room?
Pros: Agreeable feel, workmanship & stability, Comparatively slim and light, Micro HDMI & NFC, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (Vanilla), 24 month warranty, Generous (virtual) keyboard, Application and graphics performance, High-res & bright PLS screen, Stereo speakers' position, Good battery life, The good performance of the incorporated components, the fast Vanilla Android (4.2.1 Jelly Bean) and the stereo speakers' positioning.
Cons: Moderate connectivity, No model with 3G or LTE module, Memory expansion not possible, Camera modules could be better, Very reflective Gorilla Glass 2, The option to inexpensively expand the memory using a card reader and a Nexus 10 model featuring a 3G or LTE module.
Summary: There are so many good features about the Nexus 10, from its amazing ultra-high resolution display to its extraordinarily fast processor and the fact that it runs the latest version of Android. It also has excellent battery life and connectivity, provided that you don't mind the lack of a 3G/4G option. The only weakness is the relatively modest amount of storage, made worse by the lack of a memory card slot.
Conclusion: The Google Nexus 10 is a tablet that's near impossible not to like. It has the best screen on the market and is first to bring the new generation chipsets. It also runs on the latest version of the world's most popular and feature-rich smart platform and that Nexus middle name is assurance enough of staying up-to-date for quite a while. And all of this at a good $100 less than what the main rival would cost you.
