Nexus 9

Originally reviewed by 07 November 2014

Best 8-inch or 9-inch Android tablet

Key features:
  • 8.9-inch, 2,048 x 1,536 IPS LCD screen
  • Powerful GPU
  • Good battery life
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
The Nexus 9 looks starkly different to Google’s previous tablets. It is far broader and the 8.9-inch display, with an aspect ratio of 4:3, isn’t as good for viewing widescreen movies as previous Nexuses, but games and apps feel much nicer. Colours are excellent, viewing angles are good and the 281ppi screen is nice and clear. At 425g and 7.9mm thick, it’s also comfortable enough to hold for extended periods of time.

One of the standout features is that, unlike any of its rivals who will have to wait for the software, it ships with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The battery life, combined with the powerful GPU, allow for an excellent gaming experience. The 8- and 1.6-megapixel rear- and front-facing cameras aren't the best you'll ever come across, but it's a terrific piece of kit nonetheless.

Price: £299.99 (£319 at time of review) / $349.99
