iPad Mini Vs Google Nexus 7




The iPad Mini vs Google Nexus 7 has been touted as the most important battle in the 7 inch tablet segment. Both of them have their Pros and Cons, while the Nexus 7 is powered by the Android OS and great connectivity. The other one is a device from a company that has revolutionized mobile technology. We will compare some of its important features which we hope will provide some valuable insights. We tested both on this great site M88asia which has a very wide selection of great online casino games and works on both operating systems.

DisplayOne of the main reasons that people get an iPad is to read e-books; hence it is important that the device has a good display.


The Apple iPad Mini cannot be technically considered as a 7 inch tablet. It measures up to 7.85 inches. It offers a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. However, the display cannot be matched to the quality of a retina display available in the larger iPad. This is one of the weakest points of the iPad Mini.

The Google Nexus 7 has a slightly improved resolution of 1280 x 800 that provides 216 ppi density.  Now from a distance there might not be much of a difference between the two devices in terms of display but on closer inspection one may find that the Google Nexus has a better display. The Nexus 7 also boasts of better viewing angles and outdoor visibility.

ProcessorThe iPad Mini runs on a 1GHz A5 processor and has a 512 MB RAM like the previous versions of iPad such as the iPad 2. However, the Google Nexus tablet is more heavily loaded with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU with a 1 GB RAM. Despite the better features, both the devices are more or less the same in performance. However, when it comes to playing games, the Nexus 7 can boast of an edge with its better features.
User InterfaceThe Apple iPad features the iOS6. The developers at Apple have stuck to their simple and user friendly design. They have not introduced any special features for the iPad Mini. For those who like their devices simple and easy, this would be a great choice. The Google Nexus with Jellybean 4.1 has several great practical features. Some of them worth mention are the Google Now and the enhanced voice search. The fact that Google has several apps that can be used in a connected way like Google Drive, Gmail etc also provides an additional convenience.

BatterySince both the devices are intended for on the go usage and celebrate their mobility it is necessary that they have a good battery life. After testing under maximum load it was found that the Apple iPad Mini lasted longer when compared to the Google Nexus 7. Even though the Google Nexus lasted for one day, the iPad went up to 1 ¼ of a day.
Pricing and ConclusionWhen compared to the 330$ price tag of the Apple iPad, the Google Nexus provides better value for money at a 200$ price tag. The device has a better list of specifications, is more portable and is almost similarly matched in terms of user interface. However, the more aesthetically inclined and simplicity loving folk can always opt for the Apple iPad Mini.
