Like I said, Google Nexus 10 is simply beautiful and the built is just out of the world. It has those correctly implemented curves not just to make it look sophisticated but also to feel nice in the hands. It is kind of heavy as a device for your hands, it weighs about 607 grams. But yeah the overall design has led to easy portability as usage. Everything on the Nexus 10 is well measured. It comes only in black colour.


The massive 10 inch display is a high definition one with pixel density as high as 300ppi. Even the full HD 1080p videos move flawlessly on the display. The streaming rate is just wonderful and the GPU handles it with ease. You can just keep it at a distance and view videos on it without a problem and thanks to the IPS technology a wider view enables more people to view the content. Reading is an absolute bliss and with interactive dedicated reading apps, it is an experience renovated.


Rear or the primary camera on the Nexus 10 is a 5MP one and the front one is 1.9MP. Unlike the Nexus 7, camera on Nexus 10 is not rubbish. Images from the primary camera is well detailed and almost with balanced colours. The images are easily under saturated. Video recording is quiet nice, it can capture 720p HD video but obviously not as good as camcoders. Front camera takes pretty noisy images but good for video calls. They need a lot of improvement in low light conditions.


Out of the box you get the Nexus 10 comes with Android v4.2 Jelly Bean updradable to v4.3 Jelly Bean which brings bunch more APIs and also profiles. With profiles you can limit various access permissions to other users on your Android device. The good ecosystem has allowed developers to create great apps dedicatedly for the tablet. Your kids have bunch lot of interactive apps to help with their education and play time.


The powerful Dual Core chipset powers this beast of a tablet and gives fuel for the amazing capabilities this tablet has. Compared to the younger Nexus 7 which has 1GB of RAM, the Nexus 10 comes with 2GB of RAM. It allows you to multitask with more applications and interact faster. It does have the near field communication (NFC) compatibly to share files or simply pair to 3rd party hardware. The storage options are 16GB and 32GB with no external expansion.

Final Thoughts

You got a really powerful well-made tablet here. The 10 inches allow you to do so much more. Do hold it and see the difference in just the way it makes you feel. It is awesome on looks and performance both and that should seal the deal for you.
