The new Nexus 7 was released in the summer and was enjoying some rather impressive sales seeing as though the iPad mini 2 had yet to be released for a few more months. The former device had all the makings to beat the latter in terms of specs and price, but now they are battling it out for sales in the build-up to Christmas, some of you who have yet to purchase one of these models would like to know how they compare.
Apple’s iPad mini Retina is the name of the 2nd-generation model and had its release date just last month, and constrained production has had an effect on sales, although as yet Google and Apple have yet to release any sales figures.
To help give you an idea of how these two tablets compare to each other we thought you might like a selection of video reviews, all of which tests multiple factors of both tablets.
In the first New Nexus 7 vs. iPad mini 2 review we are treated to a gaming, boot, web browser speed test. Some of you believe that it is silly to test these as the price of each shows that they cater for different budgets. However, what it does show is how well the Nexus 7 2 holds its own against the more expensive iPad mini 2.
The second video is another take on the performance comparison between the two tablets, and the previous mini as well. The reviewer has used geekbench 3 and gfxbench to run the tests.
If you can’t get enough of these 2013 Nexus 7 and iPad mini 2 comparison review videos, then we have thrown another in for good measure.
Now would be the ideal time to purchase a Nexus 7 because you will get $25 Google Play Store credit for free up until March 2014. There will also be a discount on the iPad mini Retina tomorrow in the Apple Black Friday sale, although we are not certain how much the discount will be, although it could be as much as 10 percent off.
Some of you might have a dilemma this Christmas, as you might be looking at the iPad Air vs. iPad mini 2 to see which of the two suits your needs best.
