iPad Mini vs Nexus 7 2 comparison video anthology
The new Nexus 7 tablet has just been officially introduced, and the second-generation of this tablet is bound to find plenty of buyers in various regions worldwide. Any new smaller tablet device will always be compared to the iPad mini, so today we want to share with you an iPad Mini vs Nexus 7 2 comparison video anthology.
Before we detail the comparisons we’ll give you a quick rundown on specs of each so that you have an idea before you view the videos. The iPad mini released last November and is powered by a 1GHz Apple A5 dual-core processor with a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display offering resolution of 1024 x 768 and 162 ppi.
It has 512MB of RAM, and comes in 16, 32 or 64GB storage options (non-expandable). The iPad mini also has a 5-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and runs iOS 6, upgradable to 6.1.3 with a planned upgrade to iOS 7.
Moving on to the Google Nexus 7 2 made by Asus, this has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, and 7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with resolution of 1920 x 1200 and 323 ppi. It has 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage (non-expandable). The Nexus 7 2 has a 5-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capture, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and it runs stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The cheapest iPad mini price is priced at $329 for the 16GB variety. The Nexus 7 will release at the end of this month in the US followed by other regions, and the 16GB version is $229.99 so there’s a substantial difference in pricing. Now we’ll move on to the selection of YouTube videos that we’ve embedded below this story.
The first is an 8-minute look at the Nexus 7 2 vs. iPad mini and gives a good roundup of details about these two tablets. It gives side-by-side specs and dimensions and weights as well, in a very clear comparison. The second video is a much briefer comparison of the new Nexus 7 2 vs iPad mini at just two-minutes long but power packs a lot into that time. It concludes with a look at the advantages of each tablet side-by-side and you can also vote on your preferred choice.
The third video is the Nexus 7 2nd Gen vs iPad mini and is basically a table of specs for easy comparison of one against the other. Specs of the new Nexus 7 tablet are clearly superior to the iPad mini, and at a far cheaper price it looks like a no-brainer. However, some people will choose depending on which operating system they prefer. We should also bear in mind that an iPad Mini 2 is expected to launch later this year that is likely to have improved specs at around the same price.
