Price comparison





We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.



We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.Stylus included
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.



The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.



The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.



Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.



2560 x 1600px

800 x 1280px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density



Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size



The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has an IPS screen
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.


1.CPU speed

2 x 1.7GHz

4 x 1.2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.



Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage



The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.semiconductor size



Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.


1.megapixels (front camera)



The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
2.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

720 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
3.has a flash

A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
4.has touch autofocus
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
5.has a front camera
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.


1.has stereo speakers
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones



More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.Has a radio
Google Nexus 10
Google Nexus 7
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.


1.battery power



Battery power, also called battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy stored in the battery. Measured in milliampere-hours (mAh), it indicates how much electric power can be used over time. More battery power translates into longer battery life.
2.Battery life



The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
3.has a battery level indicator
