A YouTube Review
Review from the Verge, YouTube again:
gsm arena HTC Nexus 9 Review:
“The HTC Nexus 9 is a proper, no-compromise Android tablet flagship. By combining sleek design, top-notch build quality, immensely powerful hardware, and spanking new OS version, Google’s slate is probably the best challenger to the Apple iPad.”
Not so kind words:
” A thin, light device; a great screen with a white-bleed caveat; a plasticky body with a weird pressure-point issue; and a cool screen-tap-to-power function that’s mostly required because the power button stinks. That all adds up to a tough sell on a crowded showroom floor; anybody working on commission will almost certainly turn to other devices if they plan to meet their holiday sales quota.”
A more promising review:
“Modesty, that’s what makes the Google Nexus 9 an unsuspecting threat in the tablet space. The specs and design aren’t insanely out there, to drastically separate it from the existing crop of competition, but rather, it’s what it delivers with its overall package that gives it such an inviting presence – one that undoubtedly embodies all the qualities we want in that near-perfect tablet.”
” The HTC-made Nexus 9 is among the best Android tablets in terms of pure performance. In that regard it lives up to this tradition, and also shows that despite taking a few years off, HTC can still go toe-to-toe with other Android OEMs in the tablet game.”
Android Police Review
“Do you want the newest, fastest* Android tablet there is? And one with a very good screen? This is it. Those are, basically, the things the Nexus 9 has going for it. It’s not beautiful (YMMV), it’s not particularly well put together if you ask me, the battery life is not great, and even if it is fast, it’s not jaw-droppingly responsive all the time.”
“The Google Nexus 9 is the first tablet to run Android Lollipop 5.0, which should receive timely updates. It performs steadily with many apps open, and switching between them is fluid. Its streamlined construction has a deluxe, comfortable feel.”
Would be able to add my own, on my N9 bought in John Lewis on Wed, but it’s for my birthday and *she* won’t let me play yet :-(
