Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review: In Depth
6 days ago
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
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: Google and Samsung have launched a strong product in the market that is available for just 400 Euros ($530) dubbed the Nexus 10 . At least, when it is not sold out. The slim casing featuring a rubber coating is very satisfactory and the unadulterated Android OS version 4.2 and a two year warranty make a positive impression. The connectivity is limited due to the lack of a card reader.
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
Conclusion: There’s no doubting that the Nexus 10 is currently one of the very best tablets on the market. Its gorgeous screen, super-smooth operation and wealth of features combine to produce a tablet that, at last, fully showcases what the Android platform is capable of when applied to tablets.
Pros: Gorgeous, high-definition display, Slick operation and fast processing, Sits comfortably in the hand (in landscape mode), Android OS offers lots of flexibility and customisation
Cons: Jelly Bean 4.2.1 prone to freezes/random reboots, Rubber finish might not be to all tastes, Connectivity could be better
Conclusion: Offering a good few quid saving on the new iPad, it’s hard not to be impressed with the Nexus 10. Video is superb and music isn’t far behind, while the interface, features and content offerings are thorough.
Pros: Philips Fidelio M1, Slim and light, Fast interface, Google Play content, Excellent video, Good sound
Cons: Philips Fidelio M1, No 3G/4G model, Needs more tablet apps, Lacks premium feel
Excerpt: The Google Nexus 10 was an entirely expected model late last year, taking on the iPad in the 10-inch segment and joining the Google Nexus 7 on the virtual Play Store shelves. With a stunning screen, fun rubber body and a lower price, is this the tablet you should be craving?
