Solid Tablet Brought Down By WiFi Issues
J. O., Amazon
27 October 2013
Summary: I purchased this tablet back in April 2013 from a local retailer. It runs all desired applications without issue, but when the battery drops below 50%, the wireless begins cutting out with frustrating regularity, around three or four times a minute for around two to five seconds each time. I purchased this tablet for use as a productivity and entertainment tool, and while it mostly succeeds at the former, it fails pretty miserably at the latter.
Amazing Tablet......until it stopped working properly
1 October 2013
Summary: This tablet was amazing when it came out of the box. The screen is crystal clear, and it just felt very fluid when I was using it. But no more than a week into owning this device I had problems. First off, this device takes FOREVER to charge! If you have it plugged in and are using it at the same time, it doesnt even charge, instead it just sort of idles.
Summary: I bought the Nexus 10 in late December of 2012 and as of today I will have sent it back for hardware malfunctions three times. When it's not the screen and battery failing, it's the wireless card failing to connect to the majority of wireless networks. And when it's neither of those, then it's a complete memory crash where I lose all of my material. This machine has simply been frustration after frustration.
Summary: This tablet has everything to be awesome. But it is not. It seems the OS has a bug that makes the tablet reboots randomly or freeze (many times a day). If you search on the internet you can see I'm not the only one with this problem and Google it is taking forever to fix it. Today I left my tablet at home, battery 100%... And when I came back from work the device was turned off (battery 0%)... and NO heavy apps were running ... Only the basic android stuff ...
Summary: I wanted to love this tablet so badly as I tend to love everything android. Unfortunately, the tablet is plagued by a number of major issues. It is not nearly optimized enough for the new a15 chip set. This thing should be able to handle basic computing like browsing the web and navigating the interface no problem but it clearly strugles. The standard chrome browser is a joke and the letterboxing, crashes, and slow page rendering is inexcusable.
Summary: I don't know about you, but whenever I see negative reviews shouting things like "It's TERRIBLE!!!" or "BUYER BEWARE!!!" I immediately assume there's something quite wrong with the author of said review. I mean, we're talking about big name, heavily reviewed products made by some of the biggest and most dependable names in technology, surely the product couldn't be THAT bad, could it? Well, sadly, in the case of the Nexus 10, it most certainly can.
Summary: I am a fan of Android in general and I have an Android phone, which I love. We also have an iPad2 in the house that is shared among the parents and children. The iPad delivers more overall. Here's what I don't like about the Nexus 10: 1) Only the supplied cable gives a decent charge, despite the fact that it is chargeable by any mini-USB cable. I have plenty of other chargers in the house and they don't do the job. Samsung nerfed it. Totally inexcusable.
Summary: I bought the Nexus 7 for travel and liked it so much that I decided to buy the Nexus 10 to use at home. The Nexus 10 screen was gorgeous, Jelly Bean 4.2 had lots of neat features and the build quality was excellent so I quickly learned to love my new tablet. That is until it started misbehaving. It began with Chrome becoming unresponsive to touch inputs followed by a spontaneous complete shutdown and eventually a reboot.
Summary: The tablet has nice lines, clear screen, and is light to hold. That is about all of the positives I can think of at the moment. The negatives are: The volume button placement and screen on/off makes no sense. Plus, volume up/down is backwards when pressing it. The lack of a physical home button is quite annoying as well. The battery drains very quickly for a tablet. The tablet crashes at least once a day and requires a hard reset in order for it to work.
