iPad 4 vs Nexus 10

Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

  1. Overall this was well written. My one issue with your article is the OS portion. I have used both IOS and Android heavily as I am a tech at a law firm and I support IOS, Android and Blackberry smartphones. It is my honest opinion that Android is far more intuitive and easier to use. Anything beyond making phone calls and browsing the web is more difficult on IOS than Android. Those two simple tasks are just as easy to do on Android. I am surprised that you specifically mentioned menus in favor of IOS as that is one of my biggest complaints about the OS. Android provides much easier menus for navigating through the UI. The fact that the Android OS provides a back button to go to the previoius screen/menu is a great strength that it has over IOS.
    I will grant you that IOS is more efficient on the hardware, however a big part of that is that IOS doesn’t do as much as Android. With extra things like Widgets, Live backgrounds, and Adobe Flash, the hardware is simply being asked to do more. Again though, IOS is quite efficient so I won’t argue that it rises above Android in that regard. I don’t believe it is as large of a difference as you make it out to be though. Also, Android has all but caught up to IOS on the amount of total apps in the market. Google Play and Apple App Store are now both in the 700,000 app range. Apple still has a slight lead on the app count. As for tablet specific apps, you are correct on your numbers. However, I do find that most of the phone specific apps work fine on the tablets.(High end games/apps aside)
    Again, this was a well written article and I found that all of your categories other than the OS were unbiased and balanced. I credit you for not going with your personal opinion on the “tied” categories and just giving them to Apple because they are Apple. I also credit you for not giving the win to Nexus 10 based on specs alone when other factors will apply to those “tied” categories.
