Nexus 10 – Pros. and Cons.

Reviews | Thoughts By 5 years ago

*NOTE* – I am writing this blog from a user point of view not a critic or developer.

I use it about 5 hours a day and its been more than 6 weeks since i am using it so i think i can write a about its noticeable pros and cons from a user point of view.
As a user i just love it. I hardly use my Mac Pro now for things like YouTube or web browsing.


  • Amazing battery life.
  • Screen is really gorgeous – Best screen i have ever laid my eyes on.
  • Fast, smooth and responsive – Android is definitely getting better with each version. Hardware on Nexus 10 made Android run flawlessly. When i first came to know that it doesn’t have a quad core processor, i was bit disappointed but i don’t see or feel the difference. It is as fast as any quad core device out there.
  • Looks awesome.
  • It feels really good in hand.
  • Sound is awesome – speakers are loud and clear.
  • Gaming experience is great, if game support this much high res. So far i found that Gameloft and EA games are well compatible with it.
  • Light weight
  • Micro USB
  • Worth every penny i spent.


  • Build quality is not as good as competitors but we should keep in mind that its much cheaper than its competitors.
  • No good accessories available yet.
  • Random reboot issue is still there. No fix out yet.
  • Jelly Ban 4.2 is bit buggy as compared to 4.1.
  • Screen fades out while interacting with widgets on Lock Screen.
  • Nexus 10’s high resolution can be a disadvantage as well. I didn’t find a single app (except google ones) that supports the Nexus 10 really well.

Overall i am happy with it. I just want google to fix all the bugs in Jelly Bean 4.2 as soon as possible.

    can’t wait to see some good accessories for this!
