Entry price, high-end performance. The first Google tablet to sport the Nexus name is at last available for $200 with specs and features that are surprisingly similar to more costly high-end models. Is this a home run? Or is it another Motorola Xoom?

Does anyone really need a tablet? Probably not, when we’ve got phones and laptops that serve overlapping purposes. What makes the Nexus 7 so great is that it fulfills all its duties capably at a price that won’t make you feel guilty should the novelty wear off.

Nexus 7 (2013) vs Nexus 7 (2012) head–to–head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won five of our six categories, we have to say the 2013 Nexus 7 is a serious upgrade. The 2013 model features a more luxurious design, a more powerful processor, double the memory of the 2012 model and, to top it all off, one of the best displays we've ever used. That said, it's worth noting the 2012 Nexus 7 is still a very good device in its own right and it meets all the requirements for most tablet users. For this reason, while the 2013 Nexus 7 is a better device, early adopters who bought the 2012 model should consider whether they really need the added power before upgrading.

As the recent Nexus 7 rumors suggested, BestBuy claims to start selling Nexus 7 on Tuesday July 30th, followed by Staples the next day. The WiFi 16GB model will cost you $230, and for $270 you’ll get 32GB version. There have been many improvements in Nexus 7 tablet this year and the $30 extra charge for fast performing 7 inch tablet is, at least in my opinion, well justified.

If you want a tablet with which to actually do things, the Nexus 7 is the only option here. The other two are consumption devices - designed to be used to enjoy music, movies, games and books, as well as email, social media and web browsing. The Nexus 7 also offers greater variety in the places from which you can source media. But it is not nearly as easy to use as the other two. If you want a simple to use device with which to entertain yourself, you can't go wrong with the Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD. And the greater content available for the Kindle pushes us in that direction.

Overall winner: Nexus 7 Having put all three devices to the test, we have to say the clear loser is the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Boasting average performance and grating software, the tablet doesn't live up to the standards set by its iPad Mini and Nexus 7 competition, even if it is cheap. That said for new users not embedded within any ecosystem, we have to say the Nexus 7 does offer better value for money, costing £100 less than the iPad Mini while boasting better performance, albeit with slightly less solid build quality.

Overall, we’d say the winner from our initial impressions is the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Even though Apple has the gorgeous design and user-friendly OS, and we’re sure the performance will be super speedy like its current iPhones and iPads, the price just doesn’t add up. Paying another £110 on top of the Kindle Fire HD’s price tag for a device that offers the same storage and high quality screen is a tough sell.

The Nexus 7 tablet is in fact a so-called “game changer”, a product which swirls the market and gives other competitors a headache. The best compliment is to say that it feels like a tablet, which could also cost twice the amount and I do not feel that I am exaggerating now.

The Google Nexus 7 is currently selling for AED 1,200 for an 8GB unit which is a bit on the higher side considering that same unit sells for US$200 (AED 740.) At US$200, the Nexus 7 is a steal if you are ok with a small 7” sized tablet and is, without doubt, the best tablet to get. However,at AED 1,200, it is much closer to the iPad 2 which is currently selling for around AED 1,500 and with a larger screen and more tablet like interface, I think is a better buy.

For those looking for a premier, top end tablet experience, Apple's iPad remains the best choice, featuring the best screen on market and a streamlined operating system that allows it to match the performance of similar devices packing more powerful components. This means that while we would recommend the iPad over the Nexus 7 to users with cash to burn looking for a top end tablet experience, we'd equally recommend the Nexus 7 over the iPad to anyone shopping on a budget or casual tablet users looking for basic media and web browsing services.

Admittedly, the Nexus 7 needs a 3G version for true data portability, an absence which might deter some. Likewise, it can't match the media choices of Apple or Amazon and it won’t give the massive battery life of an e-ink reader either. Even so, the Nexus is good enough to make it a logical choice for anyone thinking about a smaller tablet for reading or watching video while out and about, and it's a steal at the price.

As strange as it might sound, my favorite Android tablet has long been an HP TouchPad running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (CyanogenMod 9). Until now, at least. While I still had hoped for more from Google with its first Nexus tablet, I am at least content with what it provided. It's a solid piece of hardware that is available for very little cash, and it works both quickly and smoothly. If Apple's iPad is not your thing, then the Google Nexus 7 quite possibly is.

Google succeeds at shooting Amazon's Kindle Fire out of the sky; the company has delivered a superior piece of hardware at the same starting price. The Nexus 7 also beats out the same-priced Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (an Android 4.0 tablet with lesser performance and half the storage, but with a MicroSD card slot), and it beats out Barnes & Noble's limited Nook Tablet (which adds a MicroSD slot, but is restricted by B&N's custom Android version and the apps approved for it). I like the feel and design of the Toshiba Excite 7.7 better, but that model costs twice as much as the 16GB Nexus 7. Google hasn't positioned the Nexus as an iPad killer, but it's worth noting that the Nexus's price is a 38 percent savings over the cost of getting a larger-screen, same-size iPad 2, and a 50 percent savings over a third-generation iPad.

Whether you plump for the Surface Pro 3 or Nexus 10 really depends on what you intend to do with it. One makes a pretty good makeshift laptop, while the other is still one of the best tablets you can buy but is all but useless for getting work done. As a hybrid device with a large screen and good performance the Surface Pro 3 could prove its worth as a work laptop for many people, although it couldn't meet my specific needs in this regard. And neither would I want it to. For the things I want from a tablet - the ability to get online, watch video, use social media and so on - the more portable, significantly cheaper Nexus 10 with its higher-resolution screen is the better choice.

Summing up the battle of the flagship tablets, the Apple iPad 4 manages to win out by triumphing in three out of the six categories over its rivals. Apple's tablet trumped the Surface Pro and Nexus 10 as our favourite for design and display, and proving the best out of the bunch for battery life. Despite winning half the categories, the Apple iPad 4 failed to win the major battles of performance and software, losing out to the Surface Pro due to its ability to run the full version of Windows 8. However, we felt Microsoft's tablet failed to deliver on too many occasions, such as in design and display to warrant a win over Apple's high-class device.

The Google Nexus 10 is clearly a brilliant tablet. It has high-end specs at a mid-range price, and that alone makes it deserving of attention. Add to that a generally stunning screen and near faultless performance and it really does start to look like an iPad beater. But after spending some time with it we can't quite be as enthusiastic as we'd like. The lack of expandable storage combined with the fairly limited internal storage really hampers its media capabilities. Since tablets are for most people a media-centric device that's a real issue and the single biggest problem with the Google Nexus 10, along with the screen offering slightly muted colours and contrast ratios.

It’s likely most big developers will fall over themselves to get their apps looking right on the Nexus 10, because this is the benchmark 10in Android tablet. The screen is superb, performance swift, and the price remarkable. The extra features of Android 4.2 are valuable, too. We won’t be promoting it to the top of the A-List above the iPad just yet, though. It isn’t quite polished enough, and the iPad’s library of tablet-specific apps means it just about holds the edge.

The iPad 2 remains on sale to give Apple fans a lower-priced alternative to the full-specced iPad. But there are reasons for this situation. The Nexus 10 is heavily subsidised by Google as a means of getting people to use Android and - critically - buy apps and media from Google Play. Were Samsung to make and sell it on its own terms its likely the price would be nearer that of the Galaxy Note 10.1 - nearly twice as much. That doesn't stop it being a good deal of course. That said the iPad 2 remains a good deal. The combination of Nexus 10 and Android 4.2 alone offer a similarly high quality experience as Apple's iPad. So for those who just have to have Apple tech, but cannot afford the iPad 4, the iPad 2 is a decent point of entry.

The Note 10.1 is an interesting and useful tablet. It's S-Pen offers creative options that make it unique amongst today's breed of tablets. It is reasonably priced and performs well. But the Nexus 10 is a game changer: the first tablet that can outperform the iPad, and priced to shift. It's just a shame it is tough to get hold of.

Apple iPad vs Microsoft Surface RT vs Google Nexus 10 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Despite very stiff competition from its new rivals, the Apple iPad retains its crown as top 10in tablet, boasting a compelling complete ecosystem offering, a decent - albeit not on a par with the Nexus 10's - screen, fast performance and excellent battery life. However, we should point out that for those looking for a full-on laptop replacement, the Surface RT is currently the only valid option, featuring support for Microsoft's email and a full version of Office 2013. The only downside of this is that people wanting to use the Surface in this way will have to buy its Touch Cover keyboard add-on, which adds an extra £80 to the device's cost.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Having thoroughly tested the Nexus 10, we have to say we are very impressed. Despite packing a dual-core processor the tablet is more than powerful enough, easily matching the performance of its chief competitor the Apple iPad. Add to this the host of new features included on its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, beautifully crisp screen and sleek design, and we can't sing the tablet's praises enough. For this reason, while we're not convinced it'll win over many users already embedded in the Apple eco-system, we'd fully recommend the Nexus 10 to any Android fan or new tablet buyer.

This is a powerful, effective tablet, especially if you want it for media consumption. It’s great for watching movies, listening to music and playing games, with the screen resolution looking particularly smart and the front speakers beating other tablets easily. The fast processor and 2GB of RAM ensure the tablet rarely slows down either. Does it kill the iPad? Not really, due to Apple’s iOS ease of use and plentiful supply of high-quality apps... but it comes close.

Still, that hasn’t proved a major stumbling block for the iPad with Retina display, and we imagine it will be a similar story here. It’s likely most big developers will fall over themselves to get their apps looking right on the Nexus 10, because this is now the benchmark 10in Android tablet. The screen is superb, performance swift, and the price nothing short of remarkable. The extra features of Android 4.2 are valuable, too. We won’t be promoting it to the top of the A-List above the iPad just yet, though. It isn’t quite polished enough, and the iPad’s huge library of tablet-specific apps means it just about holds the edge. But the gap is narrower than it’s ever been.

Apple's fourth-generation iPad ($499-$829), is our top choice for large-screen tablets. While the iPad and Nexus 10 share similar specs, the iPad's solid reliability and huge library of well-designed tablet apps win the day. While Android is doing well with 7-inch tablets like the Editors' Choice Google Nexus 7, for the OS to succeed on 10-inch tablets, Google really needs to give users better guidance on how to find apps that take advantage of the screen space here.

There’s no doubt about it, the Google Nexus 10 is a fantastic tablet that challenges – and in the case of the 300ppi display beats - the iPad in almost every department. Google has produced a genuine contender that’s slim, light and tactile; fast, effortlessly easy to use and a joy to play with. The screen is a sensation and deserves the plaudits, but the Nexus 10 isn’t perfect…yet. It gets pretty close – especially when you fully embrace Jelly Bean 4.2 – but until Google Play is furnished with more than a handful of 10-inch specific apps the iPad and its choice of 275,000 wins the battle.

There’s no denying that Samsung and Google have put together an impressively specified tablet in the Nexus 10. The incredibly high-resolution display is wrapped up with a very capable processor, and while the Nexus 7 feels like it makes some compromises in order to hit its price point, there’s less of a sense that the 10-inch version was built to a budget.

If you want a tablet for basic things like email, web, gaming and apps, this is the best option for now. It is both cheaper and better than most of the competition. There are a few exceptions: if you want a stylus, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a better alternative, and if you need Microsoft Office compatibility, the Microsoft Surface RT would be better. Unless you absolutely want iOS, there is simply no compelling reason to pay $100 more for an iPad. If you do, well… it’s settled.

The display is good, performance is excellent, you will be the first to receive all the Android updates and the phone simply looks gorgeous. On the downside, there is no expandable storage, the camera is lacklustre in low lighting and the earpiece has audio leaking. If you are searching for a smartphone between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 30,000, the Nexus 4 can be at the top of your list along with the LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 and the HTC One X+.

The Nexus 4 was our phone of last year. A game-changing super cheap but premium smartphone that offered great features, build and performance at a stunning price. Here we pit the Nexus 4 against Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 is a brilliant phone - although it's not without flaws. Here we compare the Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4, feature by feature. The Samsung often comes out on top, but remember that the Nexus 4 is significantly cheaper to buy outright. In fact, it remains an absolute steal at just £239, where the Galaxy S4 is a not unreasonable £450-£500.

Like the Nexus 10, the Nexus 4 is another class leader.

The Nexus 4 goes head-to-head with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5, and while it might lose out in some areas such as slimness and storage options, its £239 price more than makes up for its few shortcomings.

Google Nexus 7 2013

The original Google Nexus 7 was the first mini tablet to be well received by consumers. The Google Nexus 7 2 is the latest, much anticipated release. It is a super sleek 7 inch device with beautiful black lines. It is easy to hold in one hand and it is not just an upgrade of the Google Nexus 7 - it features all new specs and design. The screen is bound to be the Google Nexus 7 2's biggest selling point. With a resolution of 1920x1200, the vibrant and stunning display is one of the best nowadays. The downside is that there are not too many apps available yet, which take advantage of this gorgeous resolution. However, this should change once full HD becomes a more common feature of tablets.

Behind the wheels of this beautiful device is the 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, which gives the Google Nexus 7 2 all the power it needs. Games or high resolution videos will pose no problems. Despite the power, it manages to last up to 10 hours of web browsing or 9 hours of video playback which is impressive. It is a light mini tablet that can be operated with one hand means. So, it is comfortable enough to be used continuously for those 9 or 10 hours. Overall, this is the best option out there for everyone looking for a 7 inch tablet.

Apple iPad Mini 3 vs Google Nexus 7 (2013): pocket-sized tablet comparison
Source: Android Authority English
As much as the iPad Mini 3 is the clear winner in performance, do not underestimate the Nexus 7 and the Android ecosystem. Plainly put, if we shift focus to determine the winner in a bang-for-the-buck perspective, the Nexus 7 is the tablet to beat. Also important to note that many have invested heavily into either the iOS or Android ecosystems, I would always recommend leaning toward the tablet that is from the ecosystem you’ve previously invested in, unless you are in the mood for a new way of doing things. Android fans, be sure to check out the Nexus 9 if you want more horsepower.

The Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets available in the Indian market in terms of the overall user experience and build quality. However, its graphical performance was mediocre, and we did experience odd lags while playing heavy graphics games. Apart from this, the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet handled everything we threw at it with a degree of ease. If we had to mention other downsides to Nexus 7's complete package, they would be that the device tended to gobble up battery life quickly, and the limited storage (26GB user available). Our advice for power users will be to stay not too far from a charging point, as the Nexus 7 tablet tends to get below 40 percent battery within a few hours, which is disheartening.

The 32GB LTE model is priced at Rs 27,999, which feels a bit expensive for a 7-inch Android tablet. However, when you compare it to Apple’s iPad mini with Retina at the same price, the LTE Nexus 7 offers better value as you get double the storage and LTE data too. Given these tablets were only just introduced into the market, the prices should drop in a couple of months. If you don’t need 3G, then the Wi-Fi only version is also a good pick as prices start at Rs 20,999. Compared to the 2012 Nexus 7, the new version has notable changes but honestly, the price difference does seem a lot. If it’s just gaming and casual web browsing you’re after, then then the old Nexus 7 is still a bargain for the price it’s retailing at. However, if reading eBooks and watching videos is something you do a lot, the new Nexus 7 is worth the premium.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won five of our six categories, we have to say the 2013 Nexus 7 is a serious upgrade. The 2013 model features a more luxurious design, a more powerful processor, double the memory of the 2012 model and, to top it all off, one of the best displays we've ever used. That said, it's worth noting the 2012 Nexus 7 is still a very good device in its own right and it meets all the requirements for most tablet users. For this reason, while the 2013 Nexus 7 is a better device, early adopters who bought the 2012 model should consider whether they really need the added power before upgrading.

In fact our only criticism is that, being released just one year after the first Nexus 7, which has also been upgraded to Android 4.3, individuals or firms that invested in the original own-brand Google tablet may not find enough vitally new features to justify upgrading. That said, for new users looking to try out an Android tablet, we couldn't recommend the new Nexus 7 enough.

The Nexus 7 2013 is more expensive than the original but significant upgrades including the design, exceptional screen and added rear camera justify this. Despite still lacking a microSD card slot, it's the best 7in tablet around. See also: New Google Nexus 7 2 UK release date, UK price and specs.

If you're looking for a 7-inch tablet, we'll put it like this: there is no better alternative on the market, right now. If you're an Android fan, snap one up right away. But if you're on the fence, we definitely recommend holding off and waiting to see what the rumoured Retina iPad Mini or new Kindle Fire HD has to offer - though we doubt they'll give anywhere near as much value for money.

The obvious highlight of the 2013 Nexus 7 is the upgraded IPS display, which now boasts a 1920x1200 resolution. Far be it for us to downplay the hype, because as far as we're concerned, this is one of the best looking tablet displays available, if not the best around.

Still, if you're considering a tablet now and are already dabbling in the Android ecosystem, we see know reason why shouldn't take the plunge with a Nexus 7. If you haven't invested at all with Android, you're still in a good place to start. You could wait and see about the next iPad mini, which is advisable for those who have racked up a lot of App Store purchases, but there's no way it'll be as affordable as the new Nexus 7.

The somewhat half-hearted approach to tablet optimisation is a shame and a bit of an issue for the Google Nexus 7, and it's something that holds it back against the iPad Mini. Apple's little tab has endless apps tailored for its screen, and the squatter ratio and extra 0.9in make it more suitable for interaction and creating content.

Should you buy the new Nexus 7? That depends. If you have last year’s model, you might want to hold out another year to see what else Google can cram into an affordable 7 inch tablet. But if you do decide to upgrade you’ll get a better screen, a faster processor, slightly longer battery life, and generally one of the best Android tablets released to date.

The Nexus 7, available within weeks in the UK and already on sale in the US, is without doubt the ‘best of the rest’, and the most impressive Android tablet to date - as well as being a superb entertainment device. It’s still slightly crippled by a lack of decent killer apps, but in terms of hardware, at least, Google has shown it can match Apple, and actually improve on the iPad.

The new Nexus 7 is poised to change the tablet game. It has a display and a price tag that puts the iPad mini to shame, and makes us wonder what's in store for the redesigned Nexus 10. Affordable price tags have bought the Nexus 7 some leeway, but it's no longer the dirt cheap option. Between Apple's premium iPads and Amazon's rock bottom Kindle Fire HD, is their room in the middle for a new Nexus 7?

90% New Nexus 7 2 review: Google's second generation 7-inch tablet
Source: PC Advisor English
I can’t help but feel a little trepidation. The previous-generation Nexus 7 had quite a few issues to contend with after its update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. If I let the battery die, the tablet wouldn’t turn on without a hard reset, and the tablet became buggier and slower to use over time. I hope this new Nexus 7 won’t suffer from those foibles—because if history repeats itself, Google will have to do much more next time around to rid us of our bad memories. The second-generation Nexus 7 offers strong features at an affordable price. If you’re a seasoned tablet user, whether you should buy this tablet will depend primarily on whether you are tied to Google’s ecosystem. Still, this particular device can hold its own against any other 7-inch tablet currently available. At the moment, it has some of the best specs, a bright screen, and a few other little goodies—and it’s hardly a splurge. If you’re in the market for a 7-inch Android device, this is the one to get.

Google Nexus 5

Android users definitely should be giving the Google Nexus 5 a real consideration with its amazing premium tech specs packaged for very affordable price. It comes with the best processor a mobile can currently have, the Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM. So, it easily competes with the other flagship phones out there. Its Adreno 330 GPU promises to be able to run even the most resource hungry game.

It doesn't have problems running anything you throw at it. Its 5-inch 1920 by 1080 resolution IPS display makes things appear gorgeous and crisp on it. It comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and being a Google phone, it promises the latest updates will come to it first before any other. The camera is also a decent enough shooter with 8 MP and optical image stabilization.

Powering all these features is a 2300 mAh battery, which can last a day of normal use. Overall, the Nexus 5 is able to pack a great display with an amazingly fast processor at a great price. The battery is a little small compared to other flagship phones and its camera is mediocre but it gives you the best Android experience.

If you're reading this review and thinking about getting a Nexus 5 then hold your horses. Google has just announced the Nexus 6 (alongside the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player) as its successor. It's made by Motorola and is very similar to the Moto X 2014. However, it's not necessarily a natural upgrade, mainly because it's got a huge 5.9in screen and is supposedly going to cost a lot more than the Nexus 5. We're waiting for a price.

Having won six rounds to the Nexus 5's two, the Galaxy S5 is the clear winner. Featuring a more robust design, superior performance, better camera and clearer display, the Galaxy S5 outperforms the Nexus 5 in almost every way. However, with the Nexus 5 already halfway through its lifecycle as a flagship smartphone and costing close to half the price of the Galaxy S5, the Google handset does present far better value for money and is still a solid choice for any buyer on a budget.

HTC One M8 vs Google Nexus 5 comparison review: which is the best Android smartphone?
Source: PC Advisor English
As we noted when we originally reviewed the Nexus 5, it has the specifications to rival flagship Android phones, but at a much lower price. For a shade under £300, you get a great smartphone with only a few compromises. One is the plastic body, another is the lack of expandable storage. The HTC One M8 may have an aluminium shell (and a choice of three colours) and feel much more like a premium phone, but you'll also pay for the privilege: £550 if you buy it outright with no contract.

The Nexus 5 is a superb smartphone: we like the design; it’s as powerful as they come; the screen is great; it runs the latest version of Android; and the camera – although a weak point – is capable of producing good snaps and video if you’re patient. It’s the price, however, that swings things in favour of this Android handset. At $399 for the 16GB version, and $449 for the 32GB one, it undercuts its rivals significantly. That, coupled with its all-round capabilities, help to push the Nexus 5 to the top of the PC&TA A-List.

The Nexus 5 is a screaming deal. The Google Play Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are no longer easy to recommend, because they cost $300 and $250 more, respectively; while they're both getting Android 4.4 KitKat very soon, they're still much more expensive, and the Nexus 5 neatly splits the size difference between the HTC One's smaller display and the Galaxy S4's wider and more difficult to hold form factor. The Nexus 5 has a faster GPU than both of them as well. But in the end, it's Nexus 5's subsidized price that's impossible to beat.

The Snapdragon 800 SoC, five-inch 1080p IPS display, LTE connectivity and minimalist yet functional design would all be well suited to a handset nearly twice the price, yet the Nexus 5 brings it all together for just $349. Other flagship smartphones may pack more features in one area or another, but the Nexus 5 shouldn’t be overlooked. Top-end hardware, mid-range price and the stock Google experience is a satisfying combination no matter how you look at it.

Premium Android Experience

The Google Nexus 5 is a very powerful 5-inch device that offers a premium Android experience from just about every angle, especially if you're a power user that wants a more performance for gaming, HD video and multitasking. The Nexus 5's build quality is also top-shelf and its display is one of the nicest among the 5-inch devices currently on the market.

Google Nexus 5 video review: A flagship Android smartphone for half the price
Source: PC Advisor English
The handset is average when it comes to battery life. It will typically need charging every night unless you're a light user but wireless charging will help you keep the non-removable battery topped up. The Nexus 5 is a very desirable phone at an outrageously low price. It's the best value-for-money smartphone out there right now but doesn't have the best build, camera or battery life.

With Google Now and voice search Android has been utterly invaded by Google’s services and that makes KitKat scarily powerful. More importantly, with an understated build, terrific screen and unflappable performance, the hardware is a worthy match for the glorious Android 4.4 software. While no device bearing the Nexus name has misstepped, with the frenzy around the 5 it’s impressive to say that it lives up to the hype.

When we reviewed the Nexus 4 we praised LG for creating a smartphone that took a step back from being overly designed, instead letting it become a window for the main event, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Despite that this is without a doubt the best Nexus yet, it’s one of the best Android smartphones available and, in a rather odd twist, it’s probably the best phone LG has made. If we were them we’d be kicking ourselves.

The incredible leaps made by Google’s partners this year can’t be overstated. Each manufacturer has come to the table with a thoroughly unique and compelling user experience. Sony, HTC, Samsung, and LG respectively have all done some incredible things this year. An unfortunate result to this explosion of excitement and flair is how absolutely plain that makes the Nexus 5 look right now.

Although the issues we take with the Nexus 5 are considerable, they're not enough to keep us from recommending this device. One of the issues we have, which is the lackluster camera, might be resolved with a software fix. And even if it were a minor fix, it's not so bad that you'll never be able to take good photos with it. It may not have the tremendous battery life of the LG G2, or the cameras you'd find in the iPhone 5S or Lumia 1020, or the build quality of the iPhone or HTC One, but you're not going to be sacrificing much with what you're paying for the device.

Nexus 5 Review

This isn’t the only smartphone that Android will be rolling with this upcoming season, but it’s arguably the best. The Nexus 4 found its way into more than one SlashGear writer’s pocket, and it’s a device that has stood the test of time since launch for many of the same reasons that the Nexus 5 prevails: price, quality hardware, and the promise of software updates direct from Google. The potential for just such an update is, if previous Nexus devices are anything to go by, a possibility we’d bet on. In fact, with at least as much Google software support and community – whether developer, friendly hacker, or accessory maker – support as was given to the Nexus 4, it’s easy to see the Nexus 5 having massive potential for success. It’ll be interesting to see how well the Nexus line continues to compete with the carrier-subsidized smartphone world, but in the off-contract environment, the Nexus 5 simply has no equal.

The bottom line on this phone is that it’s very nice, very fast, has a very sensitive touchscreen, and pretty great battery life (we repeatedly clocked more than 9 hours with moderate to heavy use, and more than 12 when using it casually). It’s also a pretty great deal for an unlocked phone at $349 for the 16 GB, and $399 for the 32 GB. The screen is gorgeous. The camera is flawed. The photo processing is fantastic. It’s loaded up with Google brains. And mostly, it does a great job of just disappearing like a good phone should.

In absolute terms, the Nexus 5 would earns a “very good” rating, but if you factor in that it costs about half the price of high-end phones, I have to kick it up a notch.

That said, there's a simplicity and cleanness to the design that's very appealing, and a definite advantage for developers in that this phone is designed to be fiddled with. It's also very simple to crack open and replace certain parts should they fail. So, after using it for five days would I spend my own money on the Nexus 5?

The Nexus 5 is an attractive smartphone with an appealing price that will surely persuade many people to pick one up. Though the hardware is fairly mundane, the software will draw attention. Android 4.4 KitKat represents a significant evolution in Google’s OS, and it sets the Nexus 5 apart from the rest of the Android pack.

Price is by far the biggest different between the Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S. Both firms have increase the price of their smartphone compared to the previous generation but there is a big gap between them. See also: Nexus 5: Where to buy. The Nexus 5 starts at just £299 while the iPhone 5S costs a comparatively huge £549 – both with 16 GB of storage. That's the kind of value for money which is hard to argue with but there could well be things that make you pay the extra for the iPhone so we'll look at design, hardware and software.

The Nexus range has taken a real step forward here. The Nexus 4 was a great option for those that don't want to spend a lot, but the handset really began to creak after too long. The Nexus 5, while a little later in the year compared to the other top-end handsets, seems to be a lot more bullet-proof in terms of being able to carry on chugging for a couple of years. And what's better is that this will cost very little to buy directly from Google, meaning many will be able to snap this up and go on a rolling SIM-only deal to give freedom to upgrade when they want.

The reason for believing that the Nexus 5 features a fancy MEMS camera is because its camera module number – IMX179 – points to the Digital Optics' MEMS camera unit.However, Droid Life's detective work sadly casts some doubts. The model number is in fact for a Sony sensor, which just happens to be the sensor used in Digital Optic's MEMS system.

Google Nexus 6

Codenamed Shamu during its development phase, the Nexus 6 apparently lives up to its nickname by being the largest and most powerful Nexus series member so far. Excitingly, it runs on the new Android 5 or Lollipop OS, with all the latest features and enhancements. It measures almost 160 mm lengthwise which is pretty long and some say, probably too large for comfortably handling. Nevertheless, users will be blown away by its 5.96 inch AMOLED screen, which offers sharper contrast and vibrant colors.

The AMOLED technology actually turns off pixels in places that are supposed to be black, which gives a rich lifelike texture to the visuals. The display has a 2K 2560 x 1440 resolution which is on par with many phablets out there. The 13 MP OIS camera feature a ring flash for extra intense lighting during photography. It takes fantastic photos.

Hardware in this phone is also impressive, with a quad core 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB RAM and up to 64 GB storage space. Design wise, it has the signature Motorola curves and comes in either Midnight blue or Cloud white. This is definitely the smartphone to pick if you're into speed and efficiency.

Let’s talk pricing for a moment! With the Nexus 6, it starts off at $699.99 full price, which is undoubtedly on the steep side, but something that’s warranted for something of its caliber and immense size. Conversely, it’s a little confusing regarding the pricing for the Galaxy S6, as various wireless providers and retail partners all have different prices for the 32GB Galaxy S6. Ranging from $599.99 to $684.99, the Galaxy S6 is at the minimum $100 less than the Nexus 6 when it comes to outright pricing.

Whichever phone you end up choosing, just know that it’s going to cost you quite a handful to buy – whether it’s outright or with a contract. Luckily, the pricing structure for the Nexus 6 is pretty uniform whichever outlet you end up going with. So if we’re to look at it from an outright level, you’ll need to fork over a beastly $699.99 to snag the Google Nexus 6. In contrast, depending on where you go, the Galaxy S6 edge will fetch you roughly between $699.99 and $814.99.

If you’re a tech enthusiast, you’re probably sulking (like me), at the fact that a Nexus phone costs over 40k. To the regular consumer though, this won’t matter. So, yes, the Nexus 6 is indeed a good phone to buy. I like the Moto Turbo more, because it’s compact and easier to use, but that’s a matter of personal preference. The choice should actually be that, if you want a phablet, spend about 2k more and buy the Nexus 6. If it’s a phone you want, go ahead and buy the Moto Turbo.

The verdict? We're tempted to say the Nexus 6 had an easy time, but the reality is that so long as aesthetics guide consumers' purchasing decisions, HTC's One line will continue resonating well with buyers. In such a scenario, Google's device strikes us as the more logical pick for the power user crowd, especially the phablet-loving part of it, but not necessarily the masses' favorite.

It shouldn’t be funny, but here’s the moment when we can relax because the “Nexus 7″ name is already used, so we hope that means Google are going to halt with the strategy of steadily making the Nexus display diagonals longer as it’s now gone beyond all limits. If the Nexus 6 successor is also a 6-incher, we would like to see a smaller companion, just like iPhone 6 (4.7″) and its Plus (5.5″) version.

The Nexus 6, on the other hand, can be found on most of the networks on-contract, or comes with the unlocked price of $649, putting it in a more affordable space for those who don’t want to be tethered to their cellular plans.

iPhone 6 Plus vs Nexus 6 vs Galaxy Note 4 review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Winning four of this comparison review's rounds outright, Apple's first phablet is the undisputed winner. Featuring a luxurious metal design, stellar screen, wealth of enterprise security services and above average battery, the iPhone 6 Plus is a great smartphone for anyone in Apple's ecosystem. That said, for those embedded in ecosystems outside Apple's, there is still plenty to like about Google's and Samsung's phablets, which both feature superior rear cameras and an equally impressive array of enterprise productivity services.

Offering a sleeker design, better performance, longer battery life and sharper display, the iPhone 6 Plus is currently the ruler of the phablet market, and the Apple device wins six of our rounds compared to two for the Nexus 6. However, with the most basic 16GB model costing £120 more than the Nexus 6, which features a superior camera, the iPhone 6 Plus' perks come at a premium.

Note 4 vs Nexus 6 review
Source: V3.co.uk English
There's barely a whisker in it, but the Galaxy Note 4 trumped the Nexus 6 in four out of seven categories. Google's latest smartphone would be an obvious choice for those after a stock Android 5.0 Lollipop experience, but we found the Galaxy Note 4 more manageable owing to its smaller screen size and dimensions. It also came out top when it comes to battery life and storage, offering the option to expand the 32GB internal memory via microSD.

So has Google's and Motorola's risky phablet gamble paid off? Yes it has, with the Nexus 6 proving to be an amazing device that comes with some of the latest smartphone and tablet features, a truly remarkable screen and excellent performance. It's genuinely good enough that even if you are wary of super-sized smartphones you may want to put aside your concerns and give it a try.

Google Nexus 6 review: Vision of the future and echoes of the Galaxy Nexus
Source: Androidbeat English
I was prepared to dislike the initially over-large Nexus 6, after a number of so-so reviews around the rest of the tech world. And I accept that Android 5.x is not really ‘done’ yet. But the Nexus 6’s relative purity and its ambition won me over in the end. It’s not that much bigger than the Galaxy Note II that I used for the best part of a year, its screen is (almost) unsurpassed, the speakers, camera and other components are at the very least in the top tier, and – most of all – it’s the best way to stay right on top of what Google is doing with its mobile OS for at least the next 18 months.

Google and Motorola have attempted to move from the low-cost Nexus phones made by LG to something more premium. They succeeded, but haven’t gone far enough to play with the big boys in a competitive phablet market. The Nexus is a good phone that's trapped in limbo. It’s too big and too expensive for most people to want, and doesn’t match the premium devices from Samsung and Apple. Just like the Nexus 9 tablet then.

All in all, there is a lot to like about the Nexus 6 and demand has remained high for the phone, despite its premium price (around $249 w/ contract). The Nexus 6 sold out on the Google Play Store in minutes and has consistently remained out of stock for a few weeks. Carriers are now offering the phone as well, so there are additional options for buying the Nexus 6.

The Nexus 6 is a great quality device, the first phablet that we've seen wearing a Nexus badge. It offers plenty of power, good all-round performance and has a solid build and attractive design. It's the launch platform for Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is much more polished than previous versions, leading to a great overall experience. In that, it's the most accomplished Nexus yet.

80% Google Nexus 6 review: Too big and too expensive to win us over
Source: PC Advisor English
There are some good things about the Nexus 6 including build quality and some top-end hardware such as the screen, processor and camera. However, it's simply too big, unwieldy and expensive to warrant awarding it anything higher than four stars and really get behind it (unless we wanted to hid from something). In the phablet market, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is simply better even if it is pricier and the excellent LG G3 at less than £300 is another thorn in the Nexus 6's side.

Nexus 6 vs iPhone 6 review

The iPhone 6 and Nexus 6 won three rounds apiece, but for us the Apple handset remains the safer bet for enterprise customers. This is largely due to the iPhone's smaller dimensions, which make it more comfortable to use for the majority of people than the phablet sized Nexus 6, and robust security.

The Nexus 6 is a bit of a curious upgrade to the Nexus 5 in that it doesn’t replicate many of the core values that made last year’s Nexus such a hit in our book. It doesn’t dramatically undercut the competition on cost, and its hand-stretching size will be simply too much for some, especially when Android 5.0 doesn’t do anything in particular to really make use of such a large display.

Gizmag recommends the Nexus 6 to anyone looking for a powerful phone with a gigantic screen, quite possibly the most beautiful mobile software to date, and seamless performance. Its build quality isn't on par with the iPhone's, and it doesn't use a stylus like the Note, but if those aren't your priorities, you could easily argue that it's the best huge phone/small tablet you can buy today.

What we have in the Nexus 6, then, is a somewhat mixed bag. In some ways it really excels: you’re getting a fantastic spec sheet that’ll future-proof you well into next year, mated to the most compatible and capable radio stack around, and Lollipop is the prettiest Android release yet. In other ways –like fluidity, display usage, and living up to big promises about the battery life– it falls flat.

80% Google Nexus 6 Review: Vanilla Has Never Tasted So Good
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
If you're trying to decide between phones roughly this size, you have the Galaxy Note 4, iPhone 6 Plus and LG G3 (Review | Photos) to choose from. The G3 is closest to the Nexus 6 in terms of price and is also slightly smaller and easier to manage. The Galaxy Note offers a far more versatile UI and a very capable stylus. The iPhone is way more expensive and isn't as appealing to power users, but its camera is probably the best of the lot. In this company, it seems as though the Nexus 6 offers a pretty good balance in terms of all its features and its price. We just hope that Google and Motorola will follow another industry trend and release a "mini" version soon.

Being new onto the scene, there are several reasons why the Nexus 6 stands out more profoundly than its rival in the Galaxy S5. For starters, there’s no arguing the fact that it’s the fresher of the two devices – aided by its cutting-edge hardware, future proof status, and stock Android 5.0 Lollipop experience. Naturally, too, the attachment to the fabled Nexus series means that it’s going to receive future Android software updates a lot faster than its customized rival.

In every sense of the word, the Nexus 6 is solid. It’s got a truly wonderful operating system, by far the best I’ve ever used. But if Lollipop is a triumph (and it is) the Nexus 6 is basically just a nice win. It’s got great hardware, but not the best of the year in its size category. Mostly, it’s made me very excited about Lollipop—and running it on another device.

Almost hard to believe, the Google Nexus 6 and Apple iPhone 6 bear the same outright price point of $649 – though, you get 16GB of storage with the iPhone 6, and 32GB with the Nexus 6.

If those conditions don't apply to you, I'd recommend the Nexus 6. From its design and ergonomics to its user interface, speakers, performance, and button setup, it's just generally the nicer and more pleasant-to-use device. It does lack the ability to view multiple apps on screen at the same time -- which is a bummer -- but the phone's overall user experience is so much stronger that for the typical consumer, I think it'll be the preferable option. (Not to mention that it's less expensive, which is a nice side perk.)

Source: Reg Hardware English
As a phablet the Nexus 6 holds up reasonably well. It's not as advanced in hardware terms as most of the competition, and is larger and heavier, albeit with a very large screen size. But it's also significantly cheaper than rivals too, and it does "good enough" very well. Design-wise it hides its flaws well, looking a lot thinner than it is, although it lacks the panache of a Sir Jony design and some of the features you'd find in a Lumia or Samsung. It also lacks a microSD port and a removable battery, although the fast charging capabilities of the Nexus 6 are a major plus point.

In many ways, during my time with the Nexus 6 I've felt like I've been reviewing two things, not one. Certainly, the new Nexus is the most obvious, but Lollipop is not only equally impressive in its own right, but arguably more important to the smartphone space as a whole. Many more people will come into contact with Android 5.0 than will buy a Nexus 6, after all, and the improvements Google has made to the platform in terms of performance, flexibility, and semi-intelligent assistance are notable.

Motorola's contribution to the Nexus - and to Android 5.0 Lollipop in general - also includes Ambient notification mode. When a new notification arrives, the lockscreen will light up in a power-efficient (on AMOLED) black and white mode. Notifications in the new version of Android are visible on the lockscreen. You can hide notifications from certain apps for privacy reasons (or just to mute an annoying app). You can mark other apps as "priority" and then use the built-in filter to hide unimportant events from the lockscreen. The wave-to-wake gesture from the Moto X (2014) is missing though.

Google Nexus 9

The latest tablet by Google is the Nexus 9, a savvy piece of equipment designed by premium hardware maker HTC that certainly belongs to the best tablets of 2014. The design of the Nexus 9 uses a metal chassis with a soft back which makes it feels sleek and solid. It comes in colors of Indigo Black, Lunar White and Sand. The 8.9 inch HD display features an astounding 2048 x 1536 resolution which looks crisp and clear. Its size with a height of 7.8 mm thickness is just right for holding and using it comfortably.

Despite its great look, the Nexus 9's selling point is the powerful hardware inside.

Two become one. This time the latest Google tablet is produced by HTC, replacing the models Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It is the first product with the new Android 5.0 Lollipop, and looks pretty good. The new operating system now also supports 64-bit processors, and the Nexus 9 obviously uses one.

Candy lickin' good. The 64-bit version of Android 4.0 Lollipop and the matching 64-bit processor from Nvidia are certainly the big debuts in the Nexus 9. However, the new architecture apparently has some pitfalls and did not run quite smoothly in the test. Otherwise, we missed the attention to detail in HTC's tablet, which could, however, still score with a good performance and decent battery life.

The Nexus 9 is the cheaper option here and will suit those who a tablet for enjoyment but also need to do the occasional bit of light work. However, the Surface 3 is the better package for working with a more suitable design comprised of the kickstand and Type Cover. A larger screen, more storage and useful ports are all big benefits.

If you're looking for an entertainment machine that'll set the baseline for all Android tablets made by top-tier brands in 2015, this is your device. If you want a slightly smaller tablet that rolls with right around the same processing power created by a company that's keeping it up to date just as fast as - or sometimes faster than - Google, you might want to look here.

Overall, it’s difficult to know what to make of the Nexus 9. On the one hand, it has a number of serious flaws, with poor build quality chief among them. Then there’s the high battery depletion rate under load, backlight leakage around the edges of the screen, the absence of a microSD port for expansion and a lack of high-capacity models, all of which dent this tablet’s overall appeal.

But what do I think of it? Well, aside from some questionable quality control regarding the review unit exterior it’s actually quite compelling. The performance is there and the display is pretty stunning, while Android Lollipop is hugely satisfying. The battery life is fairly average, however, and as with all Nexus devices it lacks memory expandability, although connectivity options are plentiful which is certainly a plus.

The Nexus 9 is undoubtedly an aspirational device. For a long time now, Google and the Android tablet market in general have been in a position similar to Amazon’s Fire tablet. This has meant that the margin on the hardware itself has been quite low, and while quality was possible to achieve there were often sacrifices made in order to reach the targeted price point.

Dell Venue 8 7000 vs. Nexus 9: Which Android tablet is right for you?

Honestly, the race would feel more even if the Nexus 9 were priced at $300 instead of $400. But with all things equal, the scales tip pretty strongly in the Venue 8's direction for most people -- again, with the main exception being those for whom the guarantee of always having the latest software is a high priority (regardless of the compromises that may require). That factor is understandably important to a lot of us, and it's something you definitely have to take into account.

HTC have not really been in the tablet business, with the exception to their quite old HTC Flyer. At the time a great piece of hardware let down by a poor software experience.

The Google HTC Nexus 9 provides great performance with an exterior design that is just okay. The fact that it runs on the new Android 5.0 operating system is a definite plus and will appeal to most Android fans. The screen and speakers are about average but Google has made up for this with new tweaks in the operating system and a faster and more efficient processor. The bottom line is there are areas where the Nexus 9 shines and other areas that are just about average.

The Nexus 9 is no iPad Air 2, that’s for sure. It’s a good attempt by HTC and Google, but it falls short on being the perfect Nexus tablet or even the best Android tablet. The $399 ($349 at some places now) Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is a great Android tablet that’s thinner and lighter. Sure, it’s no “Pure Android” tablet, but it’s one of the year’s best Android tablets. The NVIDIA Shield Tablet which starts at $299 for a 16GB model is also a very capable tablet with lots of performance power.

This is a close call as the Nexus 9 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 both have pros and cons. If you don't mind spending more, then Google's tablet has better performance and battery life but is chunkier. Samsung's isn't as slick but is impressively svelte and has features not found on the Nexus 9.

Source: Pocketnow English
So is the Nexus 9 worth buying? Yes – but not at this price point. In our view, unless you’re a developer or a true die-hard stock Android lover, $399 is just too much to pay for the compromises we’re seeing in design, storage, and (to a lesser degree) performance. Google’s fully within its rights to reposition the Nexus family as a higher-end offering and charge more money accordingly, but it needs to deliver a truly exemplary product to justify that. The Nexus 9 is adequate, but exemplary it is not.

One of the reasons the Nexus 9 is taking the fight to the iPad is the screen. At 8.9in it's almost exactly half way between the 7.9in iPad mini and 9.7in iPad Air. More than that, it has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which deviates from the 16:9 form factor of previous Nexus tablets. The resolution might sound familiar too: 2048x1536 pixels equates to a decent 287ppi (that's less than the Nexus 7's 323ppi, though). Here's the Nexus 9 dwarfing the Nexus 7:

These two couldn’t be any more different on the outside, as one impressively stands out for its premium design and svelte construction – while the other follows a more humble and modest path. Mainly due to that disparity, it makes perfect sense why the iPad Air 2 costs $500, versus the $400 price tag of the Nexus 9. Obviously, the difference in that chunk of change is profound, one that favors Apple’s achievement in producing its tablet.

Nexus 9 deep-dive review: Bigger, but not necessarily better
Source: Computerworld.com English
The Nexus 9 is a strange tablet to try to wrap your head around. It's being positioned as a premium product, with a premium price -- but in the real world, it doesn't quite live up to that standard. When I ask myself if the Nexus 9 is meaningfully better than the Nexus 7 that came before it -- better enough to justify its $170 higher price tag -- I have a hard time coming up with a way to answer "yes." It's bigger, sure, but the Nexus 7 has snappier and more consistent performance along with a more impressive display and support for wireless charging. And it doesn't have build quality issues like the flexible back and awkwardly recessed buttons.

The Nexus 9 will likely grow into the world of Lollipop as other manufacturers join the fray and Google, along with thousands of app developers, issue updates to better leverage Android 5.0’s talents and the Tegra K1’s computing grunt.
