Google Nexus 10 Review

16 GB     See other variants reviews Score: 7.85

Google Nexus 10 is a fascinating Android tablet released many years ago, with a really big 10.1 inches multi-touch screen, a very fast Dual-Core processor running at 1.7 GHz, and 2 cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.9 mega-pixels front side camera.

The Google Nexus 10 is a very compact tablet, given that it features a 10.1" display and it is only 10.39 inches long and 6.99 inches wide. This tablet has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches. It appears that Google decided not to care much about the weight in this 21.27 oz tablet device.

This device ships with a Samsung Exynos 5 system chip, including a very powerful Dual-Core CPU running at 1700 megahertz and a great 2 GB of RAM memory. A nice feature of this device is its big 16 GB internal storage memory and while it doesn't count with an external memory slot, it is enough to store a couple hundred games and apps, although it may not be suitable if you are planning to install some of the largest games available nowadays.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 1.9 MP front side camera. It also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. This tablet device also includes a few nice features: flash, geo tagging and auto-focus.

The Google Nexus 10 includes a good looking 10.1" display with a 1600 x 2560 resolution, which makes everything look great. Its display uses True RGB Real Stripe PLS capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Google Nexus 10 packs an incredible 9000 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an incredible battery life. An issue to evaluate is that the Google Nexus 10's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to lose its charge, though with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this tablet device before that happens.

This tablet provides wi-fi connection (although it can't be shared with other devices acting as a hotspot). This tablet doesn't have a sim card, because it's not a GSM tablet.

This tablet also includes a few interesting characteristics like Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Google Nexus 10 is a bit overpriced considering it is sold for $ 140, and many similar portable tablets are sold for a bit less than that. The Google Nexus 10 is definitely the correct option for you it doesn't matter whether you you love taking pictures, need a tablet for work, are looking for a social portable tablet or need a portable tablet to play games.
