Google Nexus 10 review
7 January 2014
Summary: Tablets are in a funny phase. For years, Google and Microsoft were content to sit back while hardware partners used their software to make tablets. But as the iPad gobbled up the market, it became clear that the strategy that worked for Microsoft with PCs wasn't going to work with tablets. So both companies got in the game, Google with the Nexus 7 and Microsoft with the Surface .
Pros: Fantastic display, Fast, smooth performance, Great battery life, Good speakers for a tablet
Cons: App ecosystem woefully lacking in tablet apps, High-res screen clashes with some low-res Android graphics, Materials not as good as Nexus 7
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.
Conclusion: The Google Nexus 10 is by far the best “big” Android tablet we’ve ever seen. The screen alone puts it ahead of the competition, but it still lacks the superior build quality of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer series and the fourth-generation iPad. It also lacks the latter’s made-for-tablet apps, and Apple’s eco-system of wireless streaming, accessories and covers. But if you’re tied to Google, and if you can find one, you won’t be disappointed.
Pros: Let’s just say it: the screen on the Google Nexus 10 is phenomenal. It’s every bit as stunning as the Retina Display on the third and fourth generation iPads. It really has to be seen to believed: it’s like a printed sticker on of the glass, and makes reading a delight. After using it for a while, you’ll never want to go back. Android 4.2 meanwhile is fantastic, particularly on a tablet of this size. It’s come along away from the early days of 3.0 “Honeycomb”. It’s fa...
Cons: We could complain about the Google Nexus 10’s build quality: its plastic back is a little creaky, and lacks the cool, beautiful look of a metal-backed iPad. But starting at a very tempting £319, it’s also £80 cheaper than the entry level Retina iPad, so we suppose it goes with the territory - it's not chunky, anyway, at a pleasant 8.9mm deep, and easy to grip. More of a problem is one that Google needs to address with Android tablets as whole: the screen ratio. The wi...
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.
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.
Pros: 10.1" 16M-color Super PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WQXGA resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels), 300ppi density, Scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2, Exynos 5250 chipset: dual-core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor, Mali-T604 GPU, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 16/32 GB of built-in memory, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1.9 MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Front-mounted stereo speakers, Standard USB port, microHDMI po...
Cons: Non-expandable memory, No USB host (can be enabled with an app though), No mobile data-enabled version, Poor video-codec support out of the box
