Samsung Nexus 10

Verge Review

Tablets are in a funny phase. For years, Google and Microsoft were content to sit back while hardware partners used their software to make tablets. But as the iPad gobbled up the market, it became clear that the strategy that worked for Microsoft with PCs wasn't going to work with tablets. So both companies got in the game, Google with the Nexus 7 and Microsoft with the Surface. Google certainly shook up the 7-inch tablet market — it's the best Android tablet I've used, and the only one I've...

    The Nexus 10, one year on, is still a fine tablet. But it's starting to show its age. The overly-bezeled design, while somewhat organic and friendly to hold, is dated at this point. The plastic strip on the back of the chassis never fit properly to begin with and has only jutted out further with the passing months. The same issue occurs with the strip that also has the Book Cover attached- either strip doesn't quite fit. The camera app went to the dogs after Android 4.3 arrived- it's now impossible to take a photo in a timely manner, or share it, because the app will likely crash. The front-facing speakers were, and still are, a good idea. Performance is generally smooth, except for stutters while apps update (more pronounced than on any device I've seen), the usual lag to rotate that's characteristic of Android devices, and inexplicable freezes while using Chrome (Chrome Beta has no such problems). Battery life is extremely solid- I've gone through two school days with this device on occasion. The Android app ecosystem is, of course, diverse, but tablets still need more purpose-built apps. It's still a fine device. But I'd definitely wait for the new Asus model.

    While I don't own this device yet (but plan on getting it for my birthday/Christmas present, which is really soon), based upon what I've read about this device and reviews I've watched, my review of it is reasonably accurate. I feel that with this device, many things for Android tablets will begin to improve, or at the very least, it will begin the push for more innovation and incredible hardware. Plus, do any of you people know an iWhore, who likes to brag about their "Retina" Displays? Shove this in their face and I can imagine that they will shut up almost immediately. Besides the fact that Apple's "Retina" marketing term is bogus, this tablet meets their Retina requirement for phone displays.
