It actually holds up very well. Actually, there’s very little to choose between the two.
I must state that both devices are completely brilliant. Neither one would make for a bad tablet choice, so either way you’re onto a winner.
Due to a closeness of the competition, a lot of the answer is going to be subjective. Because I am a much bigger enthusiast of Apple’s iOS than We are of Google’s Android (though I do like Android lots) I’ll say that the iPad is a better deal. Again, that is just my belief. I’ve been using Apple computers for numerous years now and We would in my opinion not go over to anything else.
So, in order to respond this title in more detail, I went in for a 2nd opinion. To the end, I spoke to Seb Warren, who is a founder of the brand new online customer tech group AppleFanBoii, as well as a technology expert and all-round nice guy.
For Seb (who, admittedly, is a little biased) the Google nexus 10 has immediate reward over the iPad in the areas of price and also the customizability of Android (compared with iOS). “Personally, and this is coming from an Apple fanboy, Android wins” he said, “The iPad 4 continues to be running iOS 6, which includes a boring, stale design. However, you can make the Nexus 10 your own”
He then went to redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow ‘Apple-ites’ (they hate it we call them that) by admiring the iPad’s user-friendliness “If you’d like a tablet pc for ease of use, then its iPad 4 obviously” he laughed, before adding “…and also the display is beautiful”.
In terms of basic stats, the Nexus 10 is lighter than the iPad 4 by some 50g, which is substantial and renders the Nexus as the more transportable of the two. Yet, the apple ipad 4 has a slightly better battery life. The iPad also has an option for up to 64GB of space for storing, whereas the Nexus only goes as high as 32GB.
Which really amazed me is that the Google nexus 10 in fact has a higher screen resolution than the iPad 4. The Retina Display may be a great bit of branding, but recent tablet pc’s, like The Microsoft Surface, have equalled it (and also bettered it a couple of times) in terms of screen quality.
Oddly, very tech minded amongst you may well find the Nexus 10 to be a better experience; it’s also the choice to make if money can be a large factor in your decision. Yet, the apple ipad, with its winning mixture of dependability, sterling status, ease of use and access to best app store around is certainly worth the extra cash in my view.
