LG's small Android tablet has a great build that should help it stand up as a potential competitor to the iPad mini. It has a sharp display and a thin body, and with 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 600 processor, it's built to be a snappy performer too.

Description

Google's 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 sheds 2mm and 50g compared to its older brother, but still manages to add in a rear camera and a high-res, 1920x1200 323 PPI 7-inch display. The tablet runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and comes in Wi-Fi only and LTE flavors, the latter of which is capable of running on Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile's LTE networks. Google is promising 10 hours of battery while web browsing over Wi-Fi.

The second entry in Google's line of Nexus tablets, Nexus 10 is designed by Google and manufactured by Samsung. It features a plastic unibody frame and a display with 300 PPI. Google's Play store has been updated with HD content to support the new high resolution display. The device has a removable panel on the back that can be replaced with special covers specific to the device.
