Nexus 10 video review


The Nexus 10 is a 10in Android tablet designed in a landscape orientation. It has a Gorilla Glass 2 front and plastic casing and is comfortable to hold in either landscape or portrait mode. It's thinner and lighter than the most recent iPad at 9mm and 604g. Here's our Nexus 10 video review.

Phyical power and volume buttons are located on top of the tablet while ports are located on the sides. Build quality is excellent but not quite up to the standards set by Apple.

There's a thin plastic section which surrounds the rear facing camera with a spotted pattern.

Samsung has equipped the Nexus 10 with its own 1.7GHz Exynos 5250, a dual-core processor based on the ARM Cortex-A15 architecture. Backing this up is an impressive 2GB of RAM.

In the GeekBench 2 test the Nexus 10 crushed its rivals with a score of 2505. A new tablet record proving this is one speedy tablet. Its nearest competition, the iPad 4, scored 1769.

The Nexus 10 couldn't beat the iPad in every benchmark, though. It scored an average of 1329ms in the SunSpider JavaScript test – a respectable result but the iPad 4 managed a swift 854ms.

In terms of graphics, the Nexus 10 is very competent. In the GLBenchmark test it managed a good 27fps thanks to its quad-core Mali-T604 GPU. The result is better than the iPad 3's 22fps but not as good as the iPad 4's 39fps.

Aside from the scientific numbers, performance is excellent. The Nexus 10 quickly responds to any input or command. Apps open quickly and pinch zooming in the Chrome browser is silky smooth.

There are two storage options to choose from with the Nexus 10 – 16GB of 32GB. Like Apple, Google has decided to not include a microSD card slot for additional storage. If 32GB isn't enough then you'll have to opt for a tablet with a memory card slot or a higher capacity of internal storage.

The last two iPads have had an impressive Retina quality screen as a great selling point. The Nexus 10 goes even further with a whopping 2560 x 1600 resolution – the same as the 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display. Google calls it the "world’s highest resolution tablet display".

A pixel density of 300ppi is nothing short of incredible. Everything displayed on the screen looks super sharp and detailed. We found the screen very responsive and viewing angles are astounding.

At 16:10 the aspect ratio is good for watching films, and there's also the bonus of front facing stereo speakers – much more appropriate than a lot of tablets which have rear facing mono speakers.

There are two decent cameras, too.
