It’s now 16 months since the release of the Nexus 10, and while the tablet only received mixed reviews, it wasn’t long before the Google and Samsung tablet was selling out fast because of such high demand. Okay, so we know that the Nexus 10 was far from perfect, but then again some of you would agree that the tablet was ahead of its time and so there was always going to be a few issues.
There were two major software updates to make the Nexus 10 an even better device, but there is only so much software can do, which is when we have to start thinking about the hardware. Over the past year and four months questions have been asked as to how you would change the Nexus 10, and the most popular answer was battery life.
The reason for this is because the Nexus 10 battery life is around three hours less than its nearest rivals at the time, and there is possibly an even larger gap now. That’s not all, as the time it takes to charge the Nexus 10 battery is an issue as well.
Let’s say that your battery is low and then plug it in while watching a movie or a graphic intensive game, then you would hardly see the battery life indicator move.
Having said that, many Nexus 10 owners have been happy with the battery, although we are sure they wouldn’t say no to a larger battery, along with faster charging?
It’s all very well talking about the likelihood of improvements to the battery, but we’d be happy if Google would just announce a new Nexus 10 for 2014. So far, all we know is rumors, with the latest suggesting that the Nexus 10 2 will not be released due to a possible 8.9-inch model.
However, one of our colleagues has already seen the second generation Nexus 10, and finds it hard to see that Google would take things that far only to end it at the final stage. The worrying thing is, all this uncertainty has led to many of you forgetting about the 2014 Edition Nexus 10 in favor of other Android tablets instead.
