Nexus 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 showcased


The Google Nexus 10 tablet released back in November 2012 and has been a popular tablet choice among Android device enthusiasts. Recently Samsung introduced some new Pro tablets, one of which was the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Today we have a video to share of the Nexus 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 that showcases the best points of each.

There are plenty of people eagerly waiting for the new Nexus 10 tablet to be announced but nothing has yet been made official. The current version of the Nexus 10 is powered by a 1.7GHz Exynos octa-core processor and has a 10.1-inch display with resolution of 2560 x 1600.

It has 2GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage (non-expandable). The Nexus 10 also has a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, a 9000 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, upgradable to 4.4.2 KitKat.

Meanwhile the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is due to release at some point this quarter and features the Exynos 5 quad-core processor or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor (WiFi or LTE version respectively). It has a 10.1-inch Super Clear LCD display with resolution of 2560 x 1600.

Further specs of the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 include 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD to 64GB). It has an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 8220 mAh battery. It will release running Android 4.4 KitKat.

The YouTube video that we have embedded below this article gives a look at the best aspects of the Nexus 10 and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. It begins with showing the plus points of the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 against the Nexus 10, with 12 aspects getting a mention. These include expandable storage, IR blaster, 60fps video, fast Wi-Fi ac, and more.

The video continues by showing the better points of the Nexus 10, such as the fact that it runs stock Android, has a larger battery, will be significantly cheaper, has front speakers and more. Seven points are listed in total but we won’t reveal them all here as you can check out the video for yourselves.

The video concludes by showing all of these aspects for the Nexus 10 and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.2 listed side-by-side. To be fair the Samsung-made Nexus 10 from 2012 was never going to be on a par with the brand new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 as far as specs and features are concerned. You could also save money by buying the Nexus 10, as the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is likely to have a high price to match its specs.

Another thing to remember is that we are still expecting the Nexus 10 2 to be unveiled soon, and that of course is likely to be far better competition for the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. You might also like to check out a comparison of the Nexus 7 2013 vs. new Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.

We’re interested in hearing your thoughts on the Nexus 10 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Would you prefer the stock Android experience of the Nexus 10 at an affordable price? Maybe you’d rather pay more for the new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 when it arrives for sale? Let us know with your comments.

    Total waste of time. You know the next Nexus 10 is imminent yet pitch the new Samsung versus a last gen Nexus. Just a way of getting hits in my opinion. This is poor.

      In fairness to Google they have not said one word about a release date. It has been entirely speculation and “high hopes” that they will release a new 10″ nexus. They very well may decide to drop the 10″ due to poor sales of the original and focus and the Nexus 7 as its sales have been quite good.

    Also I would never buy anything less than 10 inch..my phone is almost 7. The nexus 10 original if an incredible tablet that I think was under marketed. It blows everything out there away. Gaming movies and anything with high video and sound will be a superior experience on this tablet. And it can do all the rest….for hours and hours…like this comparison shows the battery life rocks. The option for magnetic quick charge is great. I have yet to run anything out there that doesn’t fly on the machine. Its sad Google didn’t market this beast better.
