Even after one and half year of its release, Nexus 10 remains as one of the best tablets to choose right now. This 2012 tablet made by Samsung still has got no “outdated” label on it. Nexus 4, 7 and 10 are released in 2012 November and after then Nexus 4 is succeeded by Nexus 5 similarly Nexus 7 is succeeded by Nexus 7 2013 model however Nexus 10 has remained untouched as the device still has got good a“spects” for being a tab. Let us see what makes this last tablet from Google still latest.

To be evergreen, any device needs two main ingredients: hardware and software. Nexus 10 software is always up to date as it is in the name Nexus i.e. as we all know that Google rolls out android updates first to all its Nexus devices and then followed to others.

When it comes to Nexus 10 hardware, we first have to talk about the pixel-rich screen, which is a huge 10-inch LPS display with 2560 x 1600 resolution that makes up to 300ppi. This resolution for a 10-inch tab is just awesome and even for now there are a very few tabs in the market right now that can match to this scale. Whether it may be high definition videos or high resolution games, Nexus 10 is a feast for pixel-lovers.

Kudos to the design of Nexus 10 which has overall a very good build quality, feels sleek for that size and the rubber finish makes it very easy to handle. This 10-incher is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which makes it scratch-resistant. One of the best things Google has done is placing the speakers on the front side which make it sound clearer even when placed on a desk.

Nexus 10 is powered by a dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor which is used in chromebooks and is very efficient and just does easy whatever task you throw at it. The graphics are handled by Mali GPU which makes graphics rich with zero glitch and sharp quality. With 2GB RAM on-board everything goes smooth on the machine.

Nexus 10 has got a 5MP primary camera with flash which makes photos look sharp and clear. Nexus 10’s 1.9MP secondary camera is whole a lot for video calling (and also for selfies). Relatively the tabs right now in the market have no huge advantages over the camera features of Nexus 10. In my opinion, moreover a tablet is used less frequently for taking pictures rather it’s often used for video-calling.

Nexus 10 is powered by 9000 mAh non-removable battery which can easily make you away from power socket for a day. With 5 to 7 hours of screen time, this device is a reliable beast to hangout with. Not many tablets have this long-lasting battery even for now.

Specs at a glance:
10-inch screen with 2560 x 1800 resolution (300ppi)
1.7 GHz MT8377 Dual Core Processor
Android 4.4.2
5 MP Primary Camera & 1.9MP Secondary Camera
Wi-Fi, NFC
9000mAh battery

With a 10-inch screen with 300ppi pixel density, 1.7 GHz processor with 2GB RAM and a 9000mAh battery Nexus 10 is a bang for bucks and thus still a top selling tablet. After Nexus 10 though many tabs were released by Samsung and Apple they weren’t highly impressive relative to Nexus 10's price-to-specs ratio.
