Google Nexus 10 Tablet Review

Google's Nexus 10 tablet features immersive HD content, a 2560x1600 display, a dual-core ARM Cortex A5 processor and a unique multi-user experience. Matt Mira and Michael Kosta review the $399 device to see how it holds up to today's tablet standards.

What You Need To Know

  • We like the design of the Google Nexus 10 a lot with its 16x9 aspect ratio, which makes it less square than the iPad.
  • The construction itself is kind of a hollow feeling.
  • The back is a soft rubber, making it good for grip.
  • The whole thing weighs a little more than a pound and feels very balanced as a result of the size.
  • As far as buttons go, there are only 2 for the sleep/wake button and the volume toggle.
  • There's also no SD card slot for expansion.
  • The screen is great and is something called super PLS, which is plane-to-line switching.
  • This translates into an incredible viewing angle.
  • This screen has a higher resolution than the iPad at 2560x1600, which sounds very exciting but is just barely clearer.
  • The color is excellent and the brightness is very good.
  • The Google Nexus 10 is the fastest Android tablet we've ever tested on Gadget Pr0n.
  • There's a 1.7 GHz Exynos processor and 2 GB of RAM with Android's Jelly Bean 4.1.
  • There's also an option for multiple user profiles, so for someone who wants to have a tablet for the family, this is a good option.
  • The battery life is pretty good.
