Nexus 9 vs Yoga Tablet 2 8 inch
Nexus is more compact, lighter and slimmer
Nexus has less bezel area 30% vs 39% for Yoga
Res. 2048x1536 vs 1920x1200
Nexus tops Yoga because of larger display, better Colour Reproduction, sRGB Coverage and higher Contrast Ratio
Great for browsing photos
Aspect Ratio: 4:3 vs 16:10
Yoga is better for watching videos, Nexus is better for everything else
Tegra K1 vs Atom Z3745
Atom Z3745 is slightly less powerful than the previous generation Tegra 4
Tegra K1 is the successor to Tegra 4
So Tegra K1 absolutely blows out the Atom in terms of performance specially in Graphics
Both are 64bit
But the Tegra K1 has access to the more powerful and efficient V8 instruction set as it is an ARM based processor
Yoga has 16 GB + Expandable Micro SD
Nexus loses to Yoga as it has only 16 GB of non expandable memory
Both support USB OTG so you can attach PDs, External Hard Drives, Keyboard etc.
16 GB is sufficient for Apps, Heavy Games can be backed up and installed later, USB OTG can handle your Multimedia
So Nexus 16 GB should suffice the casual user
Both have 2 GB RAM
Nexus has Android 5.0 Lollipop from day one!
Lollipop is way better than Kitkat. It has ART which gives Twice the Performance of Dalvik in Kitkat
Yoga has Android 4.4 Kitkat it will receive Android 5.0 in mid next year if at all
Nexus has Unprecedented Support that Yoga can only dream off!
Atleast 3 years of instantaneous Android Upgrade to the Latest ver. straight from Google
Lifetime support by XDA community
Moar ROMs! Moar Tweaks, Customization! Moar Everything!!
Yoga has questionable Upgrade Cycle and XDA Support
Nexus could have scaling issues with some Apps at the start due to its 4:3 AR but should be resolved soon
Nexus is a bestseller and will be given priority by the Developers for their Apps and Games
So expect optimized Apps and Games for Nexus 9
Nexus has access to Tegra Zone which has highly optimised games for Nvidia hardware, a Gamers' Delight
These games take advantage of the dedicated AA, Shader, Dynamic Lighting, Ambient Occlusion etc. of Nvidia GPUs
Yoga has 4G Nexus has WiFi only
But if you tether your Tablet to your Phone then this shouldn't be a problem
Also this way you save money by having just a single Data Plan
Both have stereo speakers
Nexus has more colour options
Nexus has a huge choice of Accessories, Peripherals, Docks, Cases etc. from other vendors
Yoga does not
Bought this tab yesterday... just tested it for few hours...
- build quality - great
- display - amazing
- sound - good
- UI - Installed Nova launcher over it - nice
- performance - played Beach Buggy & Soulcraft - smooth
I'm happy with it!
