Google Nexus 10 Tablet Review

The rear part is smooth and has fine finishing with rubber plastic, logo at the center and on the top we find a rear camera lens with LED flash. In the landscape mode we find speaker grilles present on both sides of the device. We find several ports and connectors all through the sides of the body; the top corner is covered by a power button and volume rocker and the bottom part with a magnetic Pogo Pin Charger for the Nexus. The left side is fitted with a USB port and a head phone jack, the right side is equipped with HDMI port. The device can also be charged using the USB port besides Pogo Pin charger. The front part is designed with a large screen above with a camera lens and below with sensitive keys in which we found a LED key for notifications. This is a beautifully crafted tablet with all the necessary buttons for easy use.

The 10.1 inches TFT touch screen powered with Super PLS offers a high resolution display of 1600×2560 pixels. The picture quality is good and the display is perfect, sharp and crystal clear with a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch. The color saturation is balanced in a good manner and the viewing angles are fine. This supports a multi touch system where the touch responsive is very quick. The Gorilla Glass 2 protection prevents the screen from scratches and noise. This may be the best display compared to the other devices and the screen experience would be exciting for anyone.
