The Nexus 10 does not need to fear competition from Samsung. Google's smaller Nexus 7 is the portable counterpart from Asus. Cupertino puts a strong rival into the mix with the iPad 4. Choosing the operating system is a personal preference. New to the...

Google Nexus 10 review: Perfect ten


Android took the smartphone market by a storm, going from a nobody to the one to beat in just a couple of years, but tablets proved a tougher nut to crack. Google and partners have only recently started finding their pace and giving the dominating iPad...

10.1" 16M-color Super PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WQXGA resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels), 300ppi density ; Scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2 ; Exynos 5250 chipset: dual-core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor, Mali-T604 GPU, 2GB of RAM ;...

Non-expandable memory ; No USB host (can be enabled with an app though) ; No mobile data-enabled version ; Poor video-codec support out of the box

The Google Nexus 10 is a tablet that's near impossible not to like. It has the best screen on the market and is first to bring the new generation chipsets. It also runs on the latest version of the world's most popular and feature-rich smart platform...

Google Nexus 10


The Motorola Xoom marked the arrival of Android tablets almost two years ago, but since then, the space hasn't had many success stories. We've seen dozens of 10.1-inch tablets from the likes of Samsung, Asus, Acer, Toshiba, and others, but few of them...

Highest resolution of any tablet ; Android 4.2 UI is fast and easy to use ; Pure Android experience means you’ll get updates ; Comfortable to hold

No microSD or expanded storage ; Battery life lower than competitors ; Google Play Store lacks tablet apps

Though battery life and processing power take a slight hit due to the insane pixel count of its screen, the Google Nexus 10 is the best 10.1-inch Android tablet we’ve ever used. If you can live with the lack of tablet-optimized apps on Android, this...

Google Nexus 10


Google's Nexus 10 tablet ($399/16GB, $499/32GB) is nearly perfect on paper, with the highest-resolution screen in the business, a fast processor, the very latest version of Android, and an elegant design. But it's not as good in practice. During...

Super-sharp screen. Powerful processor. Only 10-inch tablet currently available with Android 4.2

Buggy. Real-life performance doesn't match up to hardware specs. Difficult to find good apps

The first 10-inch tablet from Google, the Nexus 10 is gorgeous, but even at the latest Android version (4.2), the software still feels like a beta test.

Google Nexus 10 review


The Nexus 10 sets the standard for other tablet manufacturers. If Google can persuade developers to fill in the gaps in the app market, then it will deserve to be wildly popular.

Highest-spec tablet on the market, but cheaper than the competition ; Very good screen, very good audio, very good processor ; Android 4.2 is mature and usable ; Build quality bodes durability

Few tablet-specific apps ; No 3G or LTE connectivity ; Needs a lot of charging ; Few enterprise-friendly features

Note: the prices (RRP=recommended retail price) quoted below are for the 32GB version of the Nexus 10, as reviewed here:

With a beautiful design, fast performance and sharper screen than the iPad, the Google Nexus 10 is a top-notch Android tablet.

Attractive soft-touch design; Ultra-sharp 2560 x 1600 resolution; Excellent audio; Fast overall performance; Charges via microUSB; Astounding Photo Sphere camera function; Long battery life

Tablet app selection small compared to iPad; Shallow viewing angles; No microSD slot; Uneven graphics performance

Click to EnlargeThe Nexus 10, and its Android 4.2 operating system, represent the next great leap for Google's OS and Android tablets. With a sleek design, razor-sharp display, fast performance and innovative new camera features, the Nexus 10 has...

Big 10


Google and Samsung have teamed up to create the new Nexus 10 tablet. Play with it for a few minutes and it becomes obvious the two companies have exercised their many powers to get everything right. Now if only it had some awesome apps.

Google Nexus 10


Editors' note (December 6, 2013): We've lowered the performance score of the Nexus 10 due to recent releases of more powerful tablets in the marketplace.

The Nexus 10 has a beautifully sharp screen. It's light, durable, and receives regular OS updates. Photo Sphere is an incredibly cool concept. Google's content ecosystem is only getting better.

The included charger isn't fast enough to power the battery while playing a game; even while idle, it charges painfully slowly. There's no storage expansion option, and apps that take full advantage of the screen are currently few and far between....

The Nexus 10's durable design, consistent updates, and good performance make it one of the best Android tablets to date.

Google's Nexus 7 demonstrated that the search giant should be taken seriously in affordable tablets; now, the Nexus 10 has arrived to prove Android has big-screen star quality. Offering a display that out-Retinas Apple's iPad and no shortage of...

Of course, developers will only begin coding for slates when there’s a sufficient market for their apps. Google can’t make every app that Android tablet owners might ever want to use: it needs to motivate third-party developers to wade in. Compelling...
