The Nexus range is Google’s very own flagship range of Android devices, including smartphones and tablets. And if you’re an avid Android fan, these devices will allow you to enjoy the purest, most basic performance of the world’s most popular smartphone OS. So, which of these devices is the ideal pick for you?
Google Nexus 4: The latest Google Nexus smartphone is one of the hottest phones on the market currently. Brought out by LG, unlike its predecessors that were made by Samsung, it packs in quite a punch in an extremely reasonable package. The Nexus 4 sports a 4.7-inch display, is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. It has an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP one in the front. Pick this up if you’re looking for a powerful smartphone that you can use for gaming, work, multitasking, etc. The unlocked version of the Nexus 4 costs $299.99 for the 8 GB model and $349.99 for the 16 GB model.
Google Nexus 7: Google’s foray into the world of tablets was very well received as the Nexus 7 went on to become one of the most popular tablets of 2012. With a 7-inch HD display of 1280X800 pixel resolution, a quad-core processor and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, it made headlines mostly due to its price-tag. What can we say, it definitely is one of the most affordable, yet powerful tablets out in the market. Starting at just $199.99 for the 16 GB model and going up to $299.99 for the 32 GB model with 3G, it makes for a commendable alternative to even the iPad Mini. If you’re browsing in the market for a portable tablet that you can carry around with you all day long, the Nexus 7 is surely for you.
Google Nexus 10: Buoyed by the success of its 7-inch tablet, Google went on to announce a 10-inch tablet later this year. The Nexus 10 was developed in collaboration with Samsung and comes with a 10-inch screen with an amazing resolution of 2560X1600 pixels. We’re sure you’ve forgotten the iPad’s Retina Display by now! Powered by a dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, this one’s even equipped with two cameras unlike the Nexus 7 – a 5MP camera in the rear and a 1.2 MP one in the front. It starts at $399.99 for the 16 GB model, while the 32 GB model costs $499.99. The only downside? The Nexus 10 only has WiFi connectivity and can’t be used on 3G or 4G networks. You can consider the Nexus 10 as an alternative to the iPad, but only if you’re looking to use it on WiFi networks – we’re not quite sure how much work can be done on the move with the Nexus 10 though.
