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
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: It lacks the razor sharp design of Asus’ top line Android tablets or the extended wealth of functionality available with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 , but hot damn, there’s no arguing that the Google Nexus 10 triumphs over them with its hard to believe price point of $399! Considering that it’s featuring the highest resolution display to grace a tablet thus far, it’s absolutely hard to fathom how it’s priced the way it is.
Pros: Incredible high resolution display, Very good $400 price point, Stellar battery life
Cons: No 4G/3G verison, Some software bugs with Android 4.2, Choppy performance every now and then
Conclusion: Having thoroughly tested the Nexus 10, we have to say we are very impressed. Despite having a dual-core processor the tablet is more than powerful enough, easily matching the performance of its chief competitor, the Apple Ipad.
Pros: Fast performance, good screen, decent battery, reasonable build quality, Jelly Bean is the best Android version to date.
Cons: No 3G connectivity, no 64GB model., The comments I'll get from Apple fanboi trolls for liking an Android tablet.
Excerpt: There are now dozens upon dozens of different Android-powered tablets available on the market but with the introduction of the Nexus 10 , Google has raised the bar for everyone. The 10, which runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), measures a hair less than 9mm thick and weighs just a little over 600 grams. Its most prominent feature, a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, is one of the best.
Conclusion: Anyone with high tablet performance expectations but a relatively limited budget has just been given one heck of an early Christmas present by Google. The Nexus 10 is supremely capable, despite a few performance hiccups, with the ever-improving Jelly Bean and that pixel-perfect hi-res display to tempt you into Android slate territory.
Pros: Detailed display, Ooodles of processing power
Cons: Needs more tablet-optimised apps, Display can sometimes wash-out colours
