Nexus 9

 

What we do like is the direction in which the Nexus 9 is taking Google's tablets. 8-inch-plus non-widescreen tablets like this will no longer be small-brand oddities, and that's a very good thing. We don't think it'll take the Nexus 9 18 months to be...

Big, sharp screen ; Powerful GPU ; Good battery life

Not as swish as an iPad ; Backlight leakage ; Slightly disappointing stereo speakers

Has Google finally unleashed an iPad Air beating slate?

Android Lollipop ; Great speakers ; 4:3 aspect ratio

Below par display quality ; Boring design ; No micro SD slot

Google Nexus 9 review

 

Android 5.0 Lollipop looks great on the Nexus 9, but it's uncompetitive in most other areas at this price

4:3 aspect ratio works well Android 5.0 Lollipop Fast performance Strong battery life

Lacks fine detail in video Music performance is poor No microSD card slot Uncompetitive at this price Design could be better

All this comes together to leave us feeling rather underwhelmed by the Nexus 9. Its screen size might be appealing for its mid-size approach, and its inclusion of Lollipop will be a draw for pure Android fans. But when it comes to performance, the...

Google Nexus 9 review

 

We get our first lick of the Lollipop with the Nexus tablet

Big, sharp screen ; Powerful CPU ; Pretty and new Android software

Screen has some small issues ; Android 5.0 still needs some tweaks ; Only available in 16GB and 32GB versions

Power, stamina and that great Nexus simplicity, but Google's new tab isn't flawless

Nexus 9 review: The cutting edge of Android tablets

 

The Nexus 9 is Google's new tablet, launching with a new version of Android - Lollipop - and bringing 64-bit hardware and software with it. The Nexus 9 sits at the very cutting edge of Android tablets. We like the design, the size is practically...

Nice design, plenty of grip, great speakers, latest version of Android, loads of power, wonderfully natural display

Some early app compatibility problems, average camera, no microSD storage expansion, some display edge bleed

The Nexus 9 sits at the very cutting edge of Android tablets. We like the design, the size is practically portable and we think Android 5.0 Lollipop makes some fundamental changes that make Android better. There's no question that this is a better...

Nexus 9 hands-on: Your next Nexus tablet - Pocket-lint

 

Google calls the Nexus 9 a tablet for mover and makers, perhaps an indicator that the new Nexus tablet is going to be pitched at productivity, rather than

Nexus 9 review

 

Google's Nexus tablet is bigger in size and price

Ideal 4:3 aspect ratio ; Android 5.0 Lollipop ; Knock-to-wake feature ; Strong speakers

Pricier than before ; Subpar display quality ; Uninspiring design ; No micro SD slot

Google Nexus 9 is an 8.9-inch upgrade to last year's Nexus 7 and a great introduction to Android Lollipop. It just doesn't measure up to the iPad Air 2 in more ways than one.

Nexus 9 review - still a great buy, if you can find one

 

Still our favourite Android tablet to date, the Nexus 9 is now something of a bargain

It's also worth remembering that Android devices support proper multiple user accounts, so a single tablet can be shared among two or more people, with each having their own apps, homescreens, browser favourites, email and more. It's a great idea,...

Nexus 9 review - the best Android tablet yet now just £200

 

The best Android tablet to date, and a real challenger to the iPad Air 2, the Nexus 9 raises the bar for Google-powered slates

The Nexus 9 is among the best tablets we've ever seen. The screen is wonderful, the battery life is fantastic and the build quality and design are very close to the very best from Samsung, Sony and Apple. If you're looking for a powerful Android...

Google Nexus 9 review

 

UPDATE May 2015: Right now the Android 5.1.1 update is rolling out to the Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi models first, LTE later) which includes a few usability tweaks and adds some nice security features.

Previous Nexus tablets, particularly the Nexus 7, have been hard to beat for value but that's not the case for the Nexus 9. It's not a bad tablet - especially if performance is a priority - but the screen isn't perfect and neither is build quality. The...
