Here is our round up of Google’s Nexus 10 reviews. Google unveiled the Nexus 10 tablet via their blog on October 29.

According to the press release:

[quote] Nexus 10 is the ultimate tablet for watching movies or reading magazines. We wanted to build a premium entertainment device, so we partnered with Samsung to do just that. Nexus 10 is the highest resolution tablet on the planet at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that’s over 4 million pixels right in your hands.[/quote]

The Nexus 10 will be priced at –  16GB for $399; 32GB for $499. Available on November 13 in the Google Play Store in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan.

Here are the reviews:


Nexus 10 Review – Engadget 


[quote] 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?[/quote]



Nexus 10 Review – The Verge


[quote] The Nexus 10 feels like Google’s open letter to developers. “Look how great Android tablets can be,” the company seems to be saying, “if only you’d make great apps!” The Nexus 10’s display is every bit the Retina’s equal, the build quality is excellent, and it even has a half-decent set of speakers. Android 4.2 is more stable than ever, and Android does a lot of great things iOS simply doesn’t. But you take it out of the box, say it’s beautiful and fast… then what? Apple’s tablet has 250,000-plus other apps that look and work great on a huge, high-res screen, and Android’s ecosystem is leagues behind. The Nexus 10 is a great way to watch movies, but there’s absolutely no way it’s going to replace your laptop the way the iPad could.[/quote]

Nexus 10 Review – CNET


[quote] 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.[/quote]



Nexus 10 Review – Android Community


[quote] With impressive products like the Nexus 7, the new and bigger brother in the Nexus 10 has a lot to live up to. Does it deliver? Absolutely. This is a beautifully crafted tablet inside and out. Hardware and software. Google’s improved the core experience, improved on the tablet UI they appear to be using, and have added all of that to top-tier hardware specs that are almost unrivaled on all levels.[/quote]



Nexus 10 Review – Wired


[quote] 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.

TIRED The same big problem that every Android tablet has — there still aren’t enough tablet-tailored apps available in Google Play. No microSD card slot. Safe, reserved styling doesn’t feel as unique as other Nexus products.[/quote]
