If you are a person who travels most of time then Nexus 7 is best for you because it fits best in your pocket but if you stay most of your time in home or office then go for Nexus 10. Both the tablets can be portable but due to small size of Nexus 7, it is easy portable.

Nexus 7 has 1.3 Ghz processor of vnidia tegra 3 while Nexus 10 has 1.7 Ghz processor of Exynos 5 which has A15 Cortex ARM chipset in it. Nexus 10 is faster and reliable than Nexus 7. So playing games on Nexus 10 is more fun and enjoyable. The graphics card of Nexus 10 is also faster than Nexus 7.

Extra storage for Nexus 7 and Nexus 10

As you know both tablets come with internal memory of 16 GB and 32 GB but you can enjoy extra space in these tablets also by external resources. Here are some resources you can use to increase more space for your needs:-

  • Movies and shows on Google Play
  • Read books from Google Books
  • Find music on Google Music
  • Read magazines on Google Magazine
  • Google Drive
  • Also you can use your Wi-Fi connection to connect others resources on net which provide extra space.

Note that both these tablets don’t support external memory so you have to depend upon the above resources as I mentioned to get more space.

Camera comparison between Nexus 7 and Nexus 10

It is strange to hear that Nexus 7 has no rear facing camera while Nexus 10 comes with 5 MP of rear facing camera which is best to capture high quality photos. You can have fun to chat on skype with both these tablets and enjoy video chat on both these tablets. But Nexus 7 has 1.2 MP of front facing camera which is lower than Nexus 10 front facing camera which is 1.9 MP. So the webcam in these tablets are different in quality.

Nexus 10 has also built in LED flash which helps you to capture photos in dark areas. These tablets consume android jelly bean OS and enhances nice features to capture photos and record videos. You can capture photos at different angles without losing the quality. You can also check your face in webcam just like you are standing in front of mirrorJ.

Wi-Fi and HDMI connection

In Nexus 7 with 32 GB version you can have high speed internet surfing with 3G while in 16 GB model you can have Wi-Fi availability with which you can connect to the internet. Hope that you will find Wi-Fi spots near to your location.

Nexus 10 has HDMI port which you can use to connect your tablet with high resolution TV and share your tablet screen.

Other features include GPS, Bluetooth and NFC.

Flash player support

By default both the tablets don’t have flash player installed because jelly Bean not have flash player. But you can install flash player if you want in Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

Battery comparison between Nexus 7 and Nexus 10

Nexus 7 has battery of 16 Wh while Nexus 10 comes with battery of 33 Wh. As Nexus 10 has high resolution so it uses more battery but it lasts for 8 to 9 hours usage.  On other side Nexus 7 can run continuously for 7 to 8 hours at one charging. The battery usage depends upon how you use your tablet. Both tablets have good battery you can use for longer without charging.

Final Thoughts

If you have good budget and want large screen then go for Nexus 10 and if you want to have tablet that you can also put in your pocket and is also low budget then Nexus 7 is good choice. Nexus 7 has quad core processor also. I have noticed one thing in nexus 7 that it is little bit dim in screen lightness as compare to other tablets in the market like iphone mini whose screen is lighter. So if you want to use Nexus 7 in day time outside the room then you will have trouble to see the screen.

Anyways both these tablets are modern and have latest version of android in it. So which one you choose?
