This is a superb piece of kit. I don't have an iPhone and was keen to avoid the apple route but whilst the market is flooded with numerous different manufacturers offerings, its difficult to find something as good as let alone arguably better than the iPad. Having spent hours researching, one common conclusion was that the nexus 10 was the best out there. What they've done is take Samsung's exceptional hardware and complement it with pure android software. The result is a brilliant tablet which has relegated my laptop to rare use.
I like: - super sharp display (best pixel per inch ratio around at the time of purchase) - extremely responsive touch screen, very smooth - front facing speakers so sound is not muffled when tablet is laid flat - gorilla glass screen so can take a vigorous beating from a one year old - wide selection of apps available on play store - decent build quality
I'm not so keen on: - battery life not overly great. 6 - 8 hours based on average usage; reviews of other tablets seem to indicate a longer battery life available elsewhere - no expandable memory options. I have the 32gb option for that reason but one of the reasons I prefer android phones over apples is that expandable memory facility. - sound can be a little tinny. Toshiba's excite pro has Harmon kardon speakers, albeit rear facing. - don't expect a quick charge. A huge battery and will take a while charging. I leave mine overnight as it takes a good few hours.
All in all very pleased with the purchase and happily recommend.
I have an iPad 3 and this Nexus is just as user friendly and the battery lasts just as long, if not slightly longer. Because the Nexus is a Proper Android device being Googles own tablet, the O.S gets the latest updates a lot quicker than any other device.
I needed an Android Tablet for all my Apps that I got from Amazon that I couldn't play properly on the Kobo Vox.... When my son mentioned to me about the Nexus 7 I was interested yes! but then in the Kindle Forums someone told me about the Nexus 10 coming and when I realised it was a Samsung tablet I wanted it there and then.
I kept the Google playStore page up refreshing it every few hours, until about 2 weeks later luckily the Nexus came available. Ordered it straight away on the Sunday Evening and by Tuesday Morning I was connecting the WiFi....it came that quick I was really and truly amazed. The service I had from Google was outstanding, the after sales.....having a Free Phone Number to help me setting everything up and they talked very clear which I was really pleased about.
Because I got it direct from Google themselves I managed to get the 32GB, but it's a shame that you cannot add a Memory card into the device. I was extremely pleased how Google had set the tablet up to be so clear, it's really user friendly. The Nexus is such a beautiful device, so smart and the touch screen is so responsive.
I wanted an emoji keyboard, like the ones I have for iOS on the iPads and this is it, or very similar as I actually got it from GooglePlayStore for free - this one from Amazon costs £1.27. But it can be used alongside the normal keyboard for Email and typing on-line. Just set the emoji to the 'default - keyboard and enjoy the smilies and pictures whilst typing Emails and on-line. I have recently purchased the brand new Nexus7 which is a perfect size for reading as I do find this Nexus10 much to big to read with. Also I received the Nexus5 phone for my birthday and the emoji keyboard works fab on all three devices...use it whilst writing SMS on the Nexus5 also which is terrific
The speakers are a tiny bit quiet for my liking, but you can actually get an app from Amazon *Speaker+boost* so you can play your music just like its got surround sound. But if you would rather listen with the head phones, another app in Amazon from the same developer *Earpiece* The only trouble was getting my Nexus directly from Google ....the charger started messing up so I had to find another one instead because I knew the device itself was ok. A lovely reviewer found the very Charger that I needed as the Nexus is a 2amp device. New Micro USB Mains Charger For Blackberry PlayBook Nexus 7 Fire and Kindle Fire HD You really do have the best of both worlds...Amazon App Store and Google PlayStore.
Playing music, games, reading and watching films on this Nexus is terrific. I still use my iPad, but I'm so overwhelmed with this device....you can't buy any better in my opinion and its so comfortable holding it in your hand to play games or reading. I could actually keep praising the Nexus because I love it so much and the fact that you can store all your music, books and games in the cloud from Amazon and Google I am using the Nexus all of the time, maybe a tiny bit more than the iPads. If someone told me about a year ago how much I would be using an Android device today I would never of believed them because back then I was never comfortable with Android, but they have come on Massively over the past year.
I did originally buy a case for the Nexus, but I found it to be too heavy so I have removed it out of the case and now I am hoping that I can get an sleeve to protect it when I carry the Nexus in my bag. Because the Nexus 10 is so slim, I have got it in my dressing gown pocket so I can listen to my music whilst I'm walking around the house doing other things at the same time....I never thought I would be able to that with such a big device like this, but that's because it's so slim and light like I mentioned
Beautiful tablet. Fast processor and crisp screen. The best tablet to watch video on with its aspect ratio and detail. It is let down by the fact that SkyGo and some other TV apps don't work on it with some odd excuses from Sky citing technical diffculties in rolling it out. They have been using the same excuse for over a year now saying they are working on it and will roll out soon! They managed to roll it out for the Nexus 7shortly after release.... Go figure. Discussion on the internet suggests may be due to Sky tie up with Apple on 10" screens. Don't know about that but is annoying and doesn't sound like they have very good technical staff otherwise. Apparently there are work arounds you can find on the internet. It may be worth having a look as it does appear to work from discussion with friends.
Weren't too sure re purchasing but liked the look of tablet so traded in galaxy note 10.1 and got this instead. No fancy touch wiz just the raw android experience. The screen is sharp and crisp. The only gripe I gave is lack of external memory. UPDATE 4 Months down the line this lovely tablet has begun to malfunction. Started with periodic freezing and then the infrequent static lines across the screen which started to become more frequent. The system also started to resetting itself as well after a long period of freezing. This would all stop for a day or so then start again. I was able to manage the recent 4.3 update which for a short time seemed to of stopped the problem. A few hours after the update the tablet started malfunctioning again. I loved this tablet and was disappointed that I sadly had a faulty one. Subsequently returned to Amazon.
I bought this product after looking at a range of high end tablets and settled on the Nexus 10. This offered almost everything I could possibly need in a tablet like full access to the android play store, high spec hardware and a high resolution. The performance on this tablet is amazing, It's so fast and snappy and is a real joy to use weather you're playing games or watching movies.
There are only two issues which turned out to be a real deal breaker for me. Firstly the build quality. While this did initially feel quite solid after playing around with it I started to notice the plastic back has a very noticeable flex on it. If you use a back cover or case then you most likely will not notice this.
The second problem was the most concerning, the LCD backlight display had a noticeably uneven backlight on one side of the screen. While it's not easy see while watching a movie or playing a game the problem becomes very clear while a light/white background is displayed. One side of the screen was a lot darker than the other and was very distracting when trying to read on the tablet. As I first though this could have been a faulty tablet I sent it back an ordered another tablet that was available from a different seller. When it arrived the new nexus 10 had exactly the same problem. A bit of google searching found forums with members talking about the same problem so it became clear it was more of a manufacturing defect. As some people are quite happy with the tablet it would seem some people probably didn't notice or just not that bothered, but considering I spent £400+ on this device I was very disappointed.
Because reading is one of the main uses of my tablet I could not get use to the display problem so I returned it and bough an iPad instead. It's a real shame because it's actually a very good tablet aside from the backlight issues.
