The Review: Google Nexus 10

With the release of the Nexus 7 not simply did Google show that Android can be competitive on a small tablet, they also beat the iPad small to sale by several months, giving time for the Nexus 7 to obtain a foothold in the market.

Fast forward to today and Google's set their sights even higher: right into the 10" tablet mix where the iPad rules. On paper the Nexus 10 is impressive with a Retina Display whipping 10" 2560x1600 display, brand new Exynos 5 dual central processor, Android 4.2 Jellybean and a very competing price of only $400.

Taken since a whole with the Nexus marketing which practically assures future updates, the Samsung developed and Google branded Nexus 10 checks a lots of the right boxes. The hardware has a lot in common with the Nexus 7.

The front is dominated by the display with on-screen Back, Home and Multitask keys, with the supplement of a pair of top facing speakers running alongside the edges which do a significantly better job when compared with ordinary tablet speakers.

The back is coated in a single piece of soft-touch plastic which helps you get a good grip about the tablet at the expense of staying a fingerprint magnet and obtaining a slight amount of supply when pressed upon.

Even though the buy nexus 10 is a fair bit wider than the ipad tablet 4 thanks to the 16:10 aspect ratio, it deals with to shave a bit off the weight (603g vs 652g) and thickness (8.9mm vs 9.4mm) which doesn't make a huge difference but it's a pleasant improvement nonetheless.

You may find a fairly standard collection of ports including a 3.5mm headset jack, MicroUSB and Micro HDMI along with a amount rocker and lock option.

These are located at the top left associated with the tablet which is a slightly uncomfortable position but it's one thing you get used to. You'll also find a set of two cameras, a 1.9 mega-pixel shooter up front and a 5 mega-pixel camera out back associated with an LED flash, competent at capturing 1080p video.

The front experiencing camera is perfectly acceptable for video chatting and the backed camera rivals several smartphone cameras, but is quite a bit less useful upon a 10" tablet. Here's a full video review of the Nexus 10 in action. Easily certainly one of the best features of the Nexus 10 is the display screen. With a resolution of 2560x1600 sharpness and saturation are on par with the excellent Retina

Show on the 3rd and Independence day Generations of the iPad. Paired with Android 4.2 Jellybean you can expect very smooth and solid efficiency even with the 4 million+ pixels the tablet has to push. Overall Android 4.2 can be a minor upgrade more than the previous version together with a few nice upgrades including a Quick Settings menu for altering system settings about the fly, new gesture based feedback with a keyboard comparable to Swype and multi-user support for sharing the tablet.

The Google Nexus 10 is the latest tablet sensation. It is better than the ipad, galaxy tab and the surface, all combined. You must get your hands on it, to survive.
Sadly app support continues to be severely lacking about the Nexus, just like all ~10" Android pills. This is less of a problem on the Nexus 7 as many software designed for phones work fine but when you see one thing designed for a 480x800 screen stretched to fit a 10" 2560x1600 display it is a real issue, especially when when compared to the excellent overall top quality of apps upon the iPad.

Granted the Twitter app is one of the worst cases, but you'll come upon poorly scaled software fairly often. Powering the Nexus 10 is actually the new Samsung Exynos 5 dual core processor clocked at 1.7GHz paired with 2GB regarding RAM.

As one of the first new Cortex A15 based devices to hit the market the Exynos delivers stellar performance which we'll get into in a minute. You have the option of buying the Nexus with either 32gb or 32GB regarding storage and the tablet sports a massive 9000mAh battery.
