Tablet Spec Battle: Nexus 9 vs Galaxy Tab S vs iPad Mini vs Z3 Tablet

Browse This Page

Tablets have in recent past gone from an aspirational device to a second fiddle to the desktop and smartphone. With more and more phones going big screen, it seems like the tablet market is being pushed back. But that hasn’t stopped the makers from introducing new generation tablets with evolved features. Tablets are also great portable multimedia devices, and the tablet market has become more interesting this year.

Google has unveiled its latest tablet offering, the Nexus 9, made in collaboration with HTC. The tablet flaunts some impressive features at a comparatively low price and is touted to give the other giants a run for their money. So we put it to test and see where the tablet stands out amongst the current players in the market.

iPad Mini Retina

Nexus 9 surely flexes its muscle on paper as its specs are impressive. Though what really lacks is the absence of  expandable storage. With a good display and a strong processor such as this one, expandable storage would have made it more appealing. Now that Apple is ready to launch the 3rd-gen iPad Mini tonight, we’ll get to see how Apple manages to take on Google’s native tablet. The game is still on.
