• A Comprehensive Duel between Top Tablets: Google Nexus 7 vs. Apple’s new iPad

    Posted on July 27th, 2012 David Brooks | 99 comments

    Ever since the official release of Apple’s iPad, it has been the best seller in the tablet market. For a long time, it remains to be at the top of tablet market, though a lot of other wonderful tablet devices have been continuously challenging its leading role, like Motorola XOOM, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Asus Transformer Prime, and various other Android tablets. The iPad continues to stand head above water over its rivals, especially since the release of the new iPad, which further more makes Apple iPad an undefeatable myth. Various tablet manufacturers are trying to produce a tablet that could match iPad. Amazon has had success with its budget Kindle Fire, but has limited the device to the US audience thus far. In an attempt to gain traction in the tablet market, Google has followed suit by releasing the 7 inches Google Nexus 7, one of the most powerful tablet rivals to challenge Apple iPad so far. Today, I would like to put Google Nexus 7 tablet head-to-head with Apple iPad in key features to make a comprehensive comparison. You can get the information from this duel and decide which one suits you most. The comparison will mainly focus on the following areas: design, display, processor, OS, camera, media, connectivity, storage, battery, price, etc.

    Google Nexus 7 Vs Apple New iPadDesign and display: The 7” Google’s Nexus 7 looks glossier than other tablets in the market. It’s also very convenient for you to keep Nexus 7 into your cargo pocket but can’t with the 9.7-inch iPad. As for display, no tablet could be compared with the Retina Display of New iPad, not even Nexus 7. Google offers IPS display of 1280×800 on its 7-inch Nexus tablet where as Apple offers 2048×1536 pixels IPS panel on its tablet, which means that you can watch 720P DVD movies on Nexus 7, but on the other hand you can watch full Blu-ray movie on the new iPad.

    Processor: The new iPad runs on quad-core 1GHz Apple A5X processor and got 12-core GPU, while the Nexus 7 chomps down with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, which runs significantly faster and is expected to deliver a better and smoother performance.

    Operating system (OS): Google’s Nexus 7 runs on the latest Android operating system, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, which is claimed to offer Project Butter user interface. While the new iPad now runs on iOS 5 and in few months it will be updated to iOS 6.

    Camera: The iPad’s rear 5MP iSight camera might not deliver the best shots, but it’s simply nice to know that the option to snap something is there – plus, it deepens its value over its rival. The Nexus 7 packs only a front-facing camera that’s accessible by specific apps – with no dedicated camera app to snap photos or videos.

    Multimedia: There’s little difference between these two tablets in playing music, but the Nexus 7 provides cool 3D carousel sound. The audio quality is also excellent on both tablets. As to the video playback, due to the Retina Display, there’s no doubt that the new iPad would become the winner.

    Connectivity: Right now, the Google Nexus 7 is available in Wi-Fi form only, while the iPad is available in Wi-Fi and a variety of 3G/4G LTE options. As for other connectivity options, they both pack Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, the Nexus 7 has a GPS while the iPad has it in the 4G version only.

    Storage: Google’s Nexus 7 comes with an internal storage of 8GB and 16GB in two versions where as New iPad’s on-board storage are 16GB, 32GB and 64GB on respective versions. The new iPad obviously provides more choices.

    Battery: Battery is always a concern of smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. Both devices provide users a day long use. But due to the different display size and resolution, the new iPad would make some concession in battery use.

    Price: Google has price tagged Nexus 7 at $199 (8GB) or $249 (16GB) with $25 of Play store credit and Apple seeks $499 to $699 for the Wi-Fi model and $629 to $829 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
