Google Nexus 10 Expert Review

Google Nexus 10 is worth a somewhat begrudging look

by Ravi Sinha, on 15 Nov. 2012

When Google first released the Nexus 7, it was universally praised. Not just because it was the first device to feature Android Jellybean or because of its amazing components, but because it packed the right combination of everything into an affordable package. In an age where tablets are getting bigger and more powerful, it was just what the mainstream masses needed. The Nexus 10 on the other hand, is a 10-inch tablet in a sea of competition. Although developed by Samsung, rather than Asus, this time, does it offer a sum greater than its parts? At 0.35 inches thick, weighing only 603 grams, its profile is closer to the plastic-finish of the Galaxy Tab series than the rubberized Nexus 7. It's solid, travels comfortably and is plenty strong, so there's no worry on the build quality front, especially with the display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

Specs:

It's the hardware that's a little concerning. The focus this time seems to be relegated on the 10.1 inch PLS LCD display which packs a shocking 2560x1600 resolution. Yes, that's currently more than Apple's Retina Display, and it looks simply fantastic, though brightness and contrast levels are far from the best. An A15 1.7 GHz dual core CPU with 2 GB of RAM and 16-32 GB internal storage make up the remaining hardware, though a microSD slot is conspicuously absent. Performance is speedy, whether you're handling multiple apps or surfing media heavy websites - the Nexus 10 handles every task with ease but it just doesn't differ very much from the competition (the Galaxy Note 10.1 actually outperforms it). Connectivity is good, with Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth, and the Beam function is incredibly responsive. That incredible display comes at a price though: Battery life is well below the iPad and even the Asus Infinity TF700 tablet, clocking in at around 7.5 hours. Why Samsung included a 5 megapixel camera is also perplexing, but the Nexus 10 fails to deliver. Focus is all over the place, images appeared blurry and 1080p video recording is not worth the trouble. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the new OS here, featuring a swipe-gesture onscreen keyboard, a horrendous 360 degree picture taking app called PhotoSphere and support for multiple users. There aren't as many new features as version 4.1 offered but it still operates smoothly.

Pros:

- Superb display with 2560x1600 resolution
- Strong performance
- Solid and comfortable build
- Features the latest Jelly Bean OS

Cons:

- Battery life could be far better
- Performance not much different from other 10-inch tablets
- Awful camera

Verdict:

We can appreciate Google trying to boost the market with the new display on the Nexus 10. However, it just doesn’t give that “complete package” feel that the Nexus 7, and obviously it won’t be priced for the budget-minded. Keep in mind that there are plenty of other tablets that deliver the same performance with better battery life at more affordable prices. Regardless, the Google Nexus 10 is worth a somewhat begrudging look.

The Superman Display Is Definitely...

3 /5

With everyone going gaga over the Apple iPad series, chances of any worthwhile competition in the tablet market seemed unlikely. Enter Google Nexus 10. After the successful launch and market reception of the Google Nexus 7 a few months ago, all everyone could do was wait for big brother Google to...

Good-But Reconsidearble

3 /5

A monstrous tablet that would most certainly make you think about it. Google chrome plus google's own tablet makes it an absolute killer combination. Lack of available storage option might make you reconsider it.
