Nexus 9 Design 

In the event that it were all down to appearance and construct quality, the responses to those inquiries wouldn't be especially positive. Pull the Nexus 9 from its case and the first thing you may ponder is the place all your cash has gone.

The Nexus 9 is ringed with brushed aluminum, which looks shrewd enough, its finished with smash and scratch-safe Gorilla Glass 3, and it has a pleasingly moderate appearance, as well. Tragically, however, its undermined gigantically by shabby feeling plastic on the back and disappointing form quality.

Tap the back daintily and it gives disconcertingly; curve the tablet and the entire thing squeaks and moans. Pull at a corner of the board and it begins to leave far from its mooring, in spite of the fact that the back isn't designed to be client removable whatsoever. In the event that you pick the "lunar white" or "sand" adaptations, be arranged to get the cleaning fabric out every now and again: it gets grime like no one's business. Then again, pick the "indigo dark" form.

The main positives are that its relatively light – truth be told at 425g it weighs a part short of what the proportionate ipad Air 2, and its more diminutive general size (it measures 154 x 7.95 x 228mm) methods it is workable for people with huge hands to handle in one glove. Else its a bit of a dissatisfaction.

Nexus 9 Prices, Alternatives and Features 

Generally, Nexus gadgets speak to phenomenal quality for cash, and that balances any issues emerging from somewhat mediocre form quality and features, and at £319, the Nexus 9 absolutely undercuts the ipad Air 2. On the other hand, simply being less expensive isn't adequate nowadays.

At this price, the Nexus 9 is in immediate rivalry with the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (£319), the Samsung Galaxy S 8.4 (£275), the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet (£369) and the first ipad Air (£319), all of which offer more features, have a more appealing design, or both.

Also to add to its troubles, there aren't that numerous alternatives for would-be buyers. You can purchase a 32gb Wi-Fi adaptation for £399 and 32gb 4g rendition for £459, yet that is your part.

Nexus 9 Display

The Nexus 9's screen brings about a significant improvement early introduction. Turn the tablet on, and you're welcomed by a brilliant, lively, completely clear picture. It measures 9in over the slanting, so its a touch more modest than the ipad Air 2's showcase, however with an indistinguishable determination of 1,536 x 2,048, it barely exceeds it for pixel thickness, at 284ppi.

We likewise like the 4:3 viewpoint proportion this determination conveys. Regularly, the screens on Android tablets are 16:9 or 16:10 undertakings, which feel somewhat clumsy to use in picture mode. Here, we ended up characteristically utilizing the gadget as a part of representation introduction. Urgently, it provides for you a lot of room to peruse most sites at their full width without needing to zoom in.

In our specialized tests, the numbers look great, as well. At most extreme shine, the IPS screen outmatches the ipad Air 2, arriving at 456cd/m2 on a full white screen (contrasted and 402cd/m2), and complexity is a fine 1,092:1. Shade exactness is great without a doubt, with a normal Delta E of 1.53 and a most extreme of 3.52, and the presentation is equipped for showing 94.9% of the srgb color array.

Notwithstanding, there is an issue, and its a really huge one: around all edges of the showcase is a tender white gleam – proof of major backdrop illumination spillage. This is especially detectable – and occupying once you see its there – amid motion picture playback, when the light is evident against the dark bars above and beneath your film.

Nexus 9 Performance 

As far as performance there's less to gripe about, however the Nexus 9 still doesn't post a totally unblemished set of results. In the engine is a double center Nvidia K1 chip running at 2.3ghz and a Nvidia Kepler Dx1 GPU, joined by 2gb of RAM, and this consolidation performed splendidly in the benchmarks, impending a nearby second to the ipad Air 2 in the all the more requesting tests.

That may be a blip, on the other hand, following when all is said in done utilization, we never felt needing for velocity. The Nexus 9 feels just as responsive as the ipad Air 2, and nothing we had the capacity toss at it made it such a great amount as break sweat. Plainly, the Nvidia K1 is profoundly fit.

Nexus 9 Android 5 (Lollipop) 

The Nexus 9's fundamental fascination isn't its performance, on the other hand, its the product installed: Android 5 (Lollipop). What's new? With Android's greatest ever redesign, its hard to know where to begin, however the most evident change is in the visuals.
