Introduction

Samsung and Apple have been ruling the tab market since long; and with the introduction of PC tablet, they became the ultimate and undisputed name in the industry. But with the launch of Google Nexus 10, the competition seems to look even tougher. A 10 incher, the latest tab is a result of effort from both Samsung and Google.

Though the tab is sure to cost your pocket, still it is worth the money you spend on it. Google Nexus 10 Price in India is around INR 34,000.  Manufactured by Samsung, it is the second tablet in the series. The first one, Google Nexus 7 was made by Asus. Let us magnify what this new tablet has to offer.

Design & Feel

Google Nexus 10 measures 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9mm in dimensions and weighs 603 grams, making it quite sleek but bit heavy, though lighter than iPad. Though the device doesn’t look to impress with its finishing and design, still its rounded corners look more practical than the sharp edges of iPad.

But when you actually hold Google Nexus 10, it gives a feel that the device can survive the drop compared to iPad. Overall, this 10 inch tablet looks comfortable to hold owing to its design and structure.

Hardware & Performance
