Thanksgiving day means the start of the shopping season.I am also planning a shopping list for this crazy shopping holiday. Actually I am more into electronic products. Like the coming Google Nexus 10(nexus 7 is already on sale at Google Play Store) and iPad 4. May be you are also stuck with which one to choose, so today let's have a tour with what's the difference between them.
Google nexus was released on the end of October this year which get the 10.055 display screen, and the resolution up to 2560×1600(which you can play 1080P video easily) and The number of pixels per inch reaches to 299 ppi which is much more than iPad 4. It has almost reached the standard of the retina screen. This will enable to display the video in a more delicate way. That's what a lot Android tablet manufacturers are doing in the coming days. For the display screen is another focus of competition after the competition in the dual core processors.
When Apple released its New iPad, it was regarded as the best performing screen, even iPad 2 is under this standard.iPad 4 take the same display screen like the New iPad, which gets the 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS TFT screen,resolution 2048×1536,the number of pixels per inch reaches to 264 ppi. iPad 4 still gets 4:3 screen aspect ratio,this the important feature of Apple iPad.
Although Nexus 10 gets many highlights,there is no doubt that the ultra-high resolution screen is its biggest selling point.As expected,Google tried to take advantage of this biggest selling points to inform that Google Nexus 10 is very suitable for reading e-books and magazines.It has a resolution sufficient to provide the visual experience of the printing quality of similar paper.Apple iPad 4 does have better contrast and viewing angle
2 Workmanship and design
In addition to the configuration and performance that everyone concern,the workmanship and design are also the important factor which the consumer consider to buy a product or not.From the appearance of Nexus 4 and iPad 4, we can fell that they get totally different design style.
Nexus 10 is very thin,mainly due to the relatively light materials.With a very strongly plastic feel and painted matte texture coating in the back,the beauty and touch feel may be less than the iPad 4, but more scratch-resistant.
From the look,iPad 4 is a copy of the new iPad. And thick body fell show the high design level.iPad 4 gets the aluminum shell. If not protected well, it will be scratched after a long time use.
You can also discover that as for the different screen size and aspect ratio,Google nexus 10 has a more slender body. For the Dimensions, Google Nexus 10 is 263.8×177.8×8.9 mm,weight 603 g; iPad 4 is 241.2×185.7×9.4 mm,weight 662 g.
As for a new iPad, iPad 4 made some changes based on the former. It didn't get a new name like iPad S/L due to it gets new 1.4 GHz dual core A6X processor and four core PowerVR SGX 554MP4 graphics processor, with which other iPad products are not equipped with A6X processor perform twice better than A5X, so do the display performance, but the power consumption has been effectively controlled.
Nexus take the Samsung Exynos 5250 dual core processor， which goes better than any Android device in the processor performance as well as the graphics processor performance. The picture below is a fill test, you can tell the difference between Nexus 10 and iPad 4.
For Google Nexus 10, it gets 2 GB RAM, providing 16GB, 32GB two capacity versions. It does not support microSD memory card expansion.
iPad 4 gets the 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB versions,not supporting microSD memory card expansion.However,these capacity version can almost meet the daily need for personal use.
When it comes to connectivity,iPad 4 gets a very distinct advantage which is it support to connect to LTE. But the Nexus 10 only gets the 3G version, not include the 3G+WIFI version.But you don't have to be impatient if you are an Android tablets fan,Google will add the 3G version Nexus 10 like Nexus 7 later.
iPad 4 is equipped with a 5 megapixel main camera and 1.2 megapixel front camera;Nexus 10 has a 5 megapixel main camera and 1.9 megapixel front camera.
As the matter of high resolution,Nexus 10 is the only one with a large capacity battery can be comparable with the iPad 4.The battery capacity of Nexus 10 is 9000 mAh,11560 mAh for iPad 4. Wish Nexus 10 with such a large capacity battery will be able to run a full day.
