Nexus 10 falls just short of iPad 4 in benchmark comparisons

93

The Nexus 10 has already been dubbed an “iPad killer” (how many times have we heard that before?), but according to a recent benchmark comparison, it falls below the iPad 4 in nearly every performance category. It’s interesting to see that the Nexus 10 fares very well in comparison to some of the top smartphones of the day, but it can’t take the crown for the tablet world just yet. You can check out some of the benchmark results in the gallery below.

So do these results surprise you? Do they have any effect on which tablet you’re going to buy? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Nexus 10 widescreen display is much more appealing than the 4×3 of the iPad… but these benchmarks are disappointing. There’s a $100 price difference for high resolution displays, but the iPad already has games and apps designed for the high-res display AND has a better CPU/GPU combo which came out of the blue. Samsung announced their Exynos A15 processors months ago and took this long to actually incorporate them into their devices. Waited too long I would say.

    Now I would be torn if I were in the market for a new tablet, but I’m broke.

  2. Just to add, even though iPhone 5 also bests the Nexus 4, those are completely different beasts because of the way phone purchasing works. I prefer contract-free phones and the Nexus 4 is very competitively priced, but it’s performance is also disappointing compared to the iPhone 5, although it clearly has the better screen and is much better than other Android phones on the market (i.e. Galaxy S III).

    Because of those reasons, even though it’s not the “fastest” phone overall, it’s a much easier decision to buy the Nexus 4. WiFi tablets on the other hand… they need to stay competitive in terms of performance and price points and it’s hard to choose the (inferior) new comer over the current king even with the $100 difference.

  3. Apple products always do very well in synthetic 3D benchmarks. It never translates in to real world performance though. Try web browsing on both of them and judge for yourself which is smoother.

  4. I did some math – the amount of pixels the Nexus 10 has to push is about 33.2% larger than the iPad 4 (2560×1600 vs 2048×1536), and performance on the iPad at native resolution is 53.88% better than the Nexus 10 at native resolution. Taking the pixel difference into account (subtract 33.2% from 53.88%), then the iPad is only 20.68% faster than the Nexus 10 on a per-pixel basis.

    This is based on the GLBenchmark Fill Test. It just helps to put things into perspective a bit more – my math may be off a bit, of course, but I hope it represents this a bit better. I’ll do a few more calculations and post again.

    • I don’t understand why the Nexus 10 falls so far behind on hte offscreen 1080P test; it must have something to do with the architecture? Anyone care to field a guess?

  5. Ummm…as has been stated many, many times over the years: when have benchmarks ever defined user experience? Also keep in mind that it is well known that some hardware and software is better optimized for various benchmarks. This is why HTC is usually so competitive compared to other Android manufacturers at some benchmarks, Real world experience is what matters, and rest assured the public will be speaking on this, just like they did on the Nexus 7 when everyone doubted it too.

    • Agreed. On some benchmarks, the A6X is more than double performance.

      That’s not just “falls just short”, that’s annihilated. I am an android fan and am very disappointed. But let’s be honest.

      • Yes let’s be honest… Apple pays benchmarck appssites to put them as first.
        Or we also have he option that benchmarks still suck.

  6. honestly ask anyone with an ipad what their clock speed or gpu speed is and watch the stupid looks on their faces. the ipad could be at the bottom of these lists and it wouldn’t mean sh*t people dont buy based on these tests, most people dont even compare products its “i want ianything and ill be happy!” not to say i dont want the nexus 10 on top of the ipad but since i will never waste my money on an ipad the nexus is at the top of other android tablets which i will be buying once its released

  7. Everyone is looking at out-of-the-box specs for the Nexus 10. Don’t. This is a Nexus device. It will not take long for custom ROMs and kernels to be made available for the ’10. Expect a considerable bump in performance when that occurs.

  8. […] It is time for a NO HOLDS BAR fight to the death, match-up between the iPad 4 and the supposed iPad killer, the Nexus 10. Yeah we have heard that name many times. Everyone seems to call any new awesome tablet the iPad killer, and when the Nexus 10 started showing its pretty face around the web, it was certain that it was going to be a killer as well. Then the benchmark tests started. Seems that the Nexus 10 might have brought a knife to a gun fight. The gallery below shows 6 different benchmark tests that not only show the iPad and Nexu… It is time for a NO HOLDS BAR fight to the death, match-up between the iPad 4 and the supposed iPad killer, the Nexus 10. Yeah we have heard that name many times. Everyone seems to call any new awesome tablet the iPad killer, and when the Nexus 10 started showing its pretty face around the web, it was certain that it was going to be a killer as well. Then the benchmark tests started. Seems that the Nexus 10 might have brought a knife to a gun fight. The gallery below shows 6 different benchmark tests that not only show the iPad and Nexus 10, but smartphones and other tablets. The main focus, though, is the comparison of the two tablet giants. Sadly it seems that the iPad out-performs the Nexus 10 in nearly every category. Something you do not really want to hear, but then again, who really cares, right? It is really all about preference, and even though certain tests show that the Nexus 10 does not perform as well as the iPad, it is still a very sexy, high-powered tablet. I do not think this would sway any of you not to get a Nexus 10 if you were thinking about purchasing one. I know it has not changed my mind one bit, and I am still hoping Santa Claus drops one down the chimney, my house does not have. Let us know what you guys think.   Source: Android Guys […]

  45. Totally biased tests. Ok iPad4 has a better benchmark GPU so all the tests show GPU advantage. The reality is that the only advantage of iPad4 versus Nexus 10 is this series of GPU tests , all the others are showing iPad4 far behind. I understand economic importance but this article is not fair.
