Samsung Google Nexus 10 Reviews


Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review at Gizmodo

If the radio issue I experienced was a fluke, then very probably. For watching videos, browsing the web, viewing images, and casual gaming, this is simply the best tablet out there, and at $400, it’s a good deal cheaper than the iPad. That said, gaming fanatics may want to drop the extra cash on a ten-incher with a quad-core processor, or sacrifice screen size and get the Nexus 7, which has the Tegra 3 and will be updated to Android 4.2 in the weeks to come (and only costs $200).

For now, since Joe didn’t have any radio problems, we’re going to give the tablet the benefit of the doubt and give it four stars. It’s a very luxurious tablet at an extremely competitive price. It’s like the Nexus 7 has a fancier big brother. Whether that fanciness is worth an extra $200 is up to you. We can concretely say that it’s the best full-sized Android tablet experience we’ve had, and it probably edges ahead of the Nexus 7 as well.

The Nexus 10 will be available November 13th, at Google Play. The 16GB model will be $400, and the 32GB model will be $500. We’ll be updating once the software is final, and star rating is subject to change. Read more...

Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review at Wired

Gorgeous display is among the best on any tablet. Samsung’s Exynos processor and 2GB of RAM kick out beastly levels of performance. The 5-megapixel rear camera is good, and features like Photo Sphere make it better. Android shows up as Google intended, with no alterations. Timely software updates, straight from Mountain View. Grippy coating and a thin, light profile make it easy to hold with one hand. Read more...

This tablet retails for $399, which is cheaper than the standard iPad. However, I’m not pitting one against the other. What I can say is this: If you are a Google account holder and Google product user, then you really should think about picking this device up. Sure, it’s not perfect, and I’m not thrilled that Samsung made the device.

I thought that Asus did a way better job with the look and feel of the Nexus 7 than Samsung did with this device. However, it’s not horrible; in fact it’s quite solid. The idea that Android’s OS might be better on a tablet than iOS might be jarring for you, and trust me, I surprised myself with this line of thinking. What I’m saying is that for my daily usage and lifestyle, this really is the case. Read more...

Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review at CNET

The Nexus isn't an iPad-killer. At least not in its current state. There are still a few performance issues that Google needs to iron out, and until we get more information on the Pogo charger's pricing and availability, the slow charging issue will remain a particular sticking point. I'm also eagerly awaiting how the apps situation pans out leading up to release. There are a few apps that look great on the tablet, but I want to see more than a handful.

You'll still want to make the iPad your first choice thanks to its years of refined performance, apps selection, and content ecosystem. If you're going for Android, right now it'll depend on what you're looking for. The Transformer Infinity has a brighter screen, better camera, and a built-in storage expansion option. However, the Nexus 10 has superior design and performance, and the features available in Android 4.2 may be worth price of admission alone. However, thanks to the prerelease issues mentioned above, I can't give it an unqualified recommendation in its current state. Read more...

The Nexus 7 impressed us on nearly every front. What few flaws there were we more than forgave thanks to its bargain-basement price. At $400 to $500, the Nexus 10 is actually on par with many other 10-inch Android competitors -- even a little more expensive than some -- and, with average performance in most areas and sub-par battery life, it's relying on that incredibly high resolution and fresh Android build to set it apart. Sadly, neither is enough to distance this tablet from the competition.

The resolution is indeed quite nice but in many ways, the Super IPS+ panel on the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is even nicer, and other than that new keyboard there's nothing much in Android 4.2 to get excited about right now. Of course, the true beauty of the Nexus line is that when 4.3 rolls around this slate will be the first to get it, and that is certainly worth something. But is it worth enough to make up for this tablet's other shortcomings? Read more...

Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review at SlashGear

There’s no denying that Samsung and Google have put together an impressively specified tablet in the Nexus 10. The incredibly high-resolution display is wrapped up with a very capable processor, and while the Nexus 7 feels like it makes some compromises in order to hit its price point, there’s less of a sense that the 10-inch version was built to a budget.

That, and Jelly Bean 4.2's software improvements, only serve to highlight the lingering drawback to Android tablets: the shortage of good applications. Android phone users have a significant number of titles to choose from, but too many expect tablet users to make do with magnified versions of the same on their bigger screens. When you’re talking about a panel as pixel-dense as the Nexus 10, that’s a travesty. Read more...

The Nexus 10 brings with it some enhancements for tablets, the key one being the high-resolution display. It's a glorious thing to behold and it's difficult to cast our eyes on lesser Android tablets now as a result.

The performance is great too, with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean feeling snappy as you move around. Apps open quickly and Chrome pages load in a flash. It's also a much better tablet OS than older generations of Android have been - even if we're just talking about minor nips and tucks here and there.

But if you want longer battery life, or the option to expand the storage, then you might be drawn to something like the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, which offers you more flexibility for storage, greater endurance and a great display, but costs substantially more. Read more...

Samsung Google Nexus 10 Review at TechRadar

The Google Nexus 10 is clearly a brilliant tablet. It's got top-end specs at a mid-range price; that alone makes it deserving of attention. Add to that a generally stunning screen and near faultless performance and it really does start to look like an iPad beater.

But after spending some time with it we can't quite be as enthusiastic as we'd like. The lack of expandable storage combined with the fairly limited internal storage really hampers its media capabilities. Since tablets are for most people a media-centric device that's a real issue and the single biggest problem with the Google Nexus 10, along with the screen offering slightly muted colours and contrast ratios.
