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
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.
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: The Nexus 7 impressed us on nearly every front. What few flaws there were we more than forgave thanks to its bargain-basement price. At $400 to $500, the Nexus 10 is actually on par with many other 10-inch Android competitors -- even a little more expensive than some -- and, with average performance in most areas and sub-par battery life, it's relying on that incredibly high resolution and fresh Android build to set it apart.
Pros: Incredibly high-res display, Front-facing stereo speakers, Latest and greatest Android build, Great gaming performance
Cons: Middling overall speed and battery life, Display lacks contrast
Summary: The Nexus 10, and its Android 4.2 operating system, represent the next great leap for Google's OS and Android tablets. With a sleek design, razor-sharp display, fast performance and innovative new camera features, the Nexus 10 has vaulted to the head of the pack among 10-inch Android slates.
Pros: Attractive soft-touch design, Ultra-sharp 2560 x 1600 resolution, Excellent audio, Fast overall performance, Charges via microUSB, Astounding Photo Sphere camera function, Long battery life
Cons: Tablet app selection small compared to iPad, Shallow viewing angles, No microSD slot, Uneven graphics performance
Summary: If you are after a 10" tablet then the Nexus 10 is a great option, a beautiful high definition screen makes watching films a pleasure, it's powerful and fast, some may find the rubber finish not to their taste.
The Nexus 10 is a great piece of hardware only let down by a lack of tablet-optimised apps

Summary: The Google Nexus 10 is a thin and lightweight tablet with an exceptional screen and a competitive price. It's only let down by a lack of expandable memory and the fact there's not enough third-party apps optimised for its larger screen size.
Pros: Excellent screen & speakers, Good ergonomics, Smooth performance
Cons: Tablet app ecosystem needs work, Bland looking design, No removable storage
