Google Nexus 9 Review

Score: 74.5 / 100

Google Nexus 9 is a top-notch Android tablet launched many years ago, including a 2.3 gigahertz Dual-Core 64 bit processing unit, a large 8.9 inches multi touch screen, and 2 cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.6 mega-pixels front camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet device's advantages when we get into specific details.

Google decided to equip this tablet using an extremely powerful 2.3 gigahertz Dual-Core 64 bit processing unit, included in a NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip and a big 2 GB of RAM memory. A good point of this tablet is its astonishing 32 GB internal storage and while it doesn't come with a slot for external memory cards, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications without even thinking about filling the tablet.

Google sells the Google Nexus 9 in three colors: black, brown and white. This device is a compact tablet device, given that it features a 8.9 inches screen and it's just 8.99 inches long. This tablet is thin, being just 0.31" thick. It appears that Google decided not to care much about the weight in this 15.38 ounces tablet.

This device includes a good level 8.9-inches screen with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, which makes all pictures and movies look very nice. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This device features wi-fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) fast data connection and the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device uses a SIM card for GSM services.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back camera and a 1.6 megapixels front side camera. This tablet also shoots videos in Full HD 1920x1080. This camera also includes flash and auto-focus.

The Google Nexus 9 features a large 6700 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide this device with a marvelous battery life. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to get older, although with so much capacity you will probably replace this device before that happens.

This tablet also comes with a few useful characteristics as Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices and accessories) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Google Nexus 9 might not be so convinient considering it is priced $ 249, while other similar tablets cost less than that. This tablet is probably very appropiate for you no matter if you want it for work, are looking for a device to play games, will use this device mostly for social networks or are a photography fan.
