5. Google Nexus 10

Google Nexus 10

The 10.1 display is one of the biggest talking points on the Google Nexus 10. At 300 pixels per inch it's the highest resolution tablet display on the planet - take that, Apple and your Retina displays.

It's a great performer too. Other than taking a while to process panoramic photos we never felt like it was struggling to keep up. It's fast and smooth whatever you throw at it.

Sure it may not be as stunning to look at, or as well built as an iPad Air, and the lack of expandable memory will irk some, but overall the Nexus 10 gives you a quality, big-screen Android experience which is not to be sniffed at.

On top of that, the tablet has already been updated to Android 4.3 - the latest version of the operating system - showing this is the tablet to buy if you want a larger screen that Google won't give up on.

Quick Verdict

The Google Nexus 10 is easily one of the best Android tablets on the market and while it's not quite as fantastic value for money as the new Nexus 7, it certainly gives Apple's high-priced iPad a run for its money. For the price you're paying, you won't be disappointed.
