With its high-end specs and stock Android 5.0 Lollipop version, the Nexus 9 surely has a lot to offer. It is an ideal alternative for people who don’t need the best tablets in the market, such as the iPad Air 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablet. It comes with guest accounts management and parental controls. The stunning audio technology should deliver an excellent experience. It also has a lot of things to offer and will deliver a far better experience compared to many ultra-affordable, no-name brand models in the market. With the Nexus 9, users shouldn’t have too many things to worry about. They’ll get better overall features and much better hardware specs. Here are five interesting things about Nexus 9 tablet:
1. Good Display and Audio: The Google Nexus 9 is capable of delivering stunning audio and video quality. It is a perfect companion for many occasions. Like the iPad, it comes with 4:3 aspect ratio on its crisp 8.9-inch display. The front-facing dual speakers should deliver great audio quality for watching multimedia content and playing games. Users could also stream Google Play Movies & TV, Hulu, YouTube and Chromecast to a big screen display. According to various reviews, the Nexus 9 delivers among the best display quality with its Quad HD screen resolution. As comparison, the speakers of Galaxy Tab S don’t face towards users and this could result in rather muffled sound quality.
2. Android 5.0 Lollipop: The Google Nexus 9 comes with the improved and redesigned software version, the Android 5.0 Lollipop. Users will get an immediate update to any incremental Android Lollipop updates. The Lollipop delivers many changes, such as fluid and smooth interface. It comes with the powerful Nvidia processor that allows for 64-bit computing for improver gameplay and better performance. All the best and most demanding Android apps and games should work flawlessly on the Nexus 9. This is surely just one more reason to buy the Nexus 9 tablet.
3. Kids Mode: The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean introduced the multi-user account management. It can be applied for a few purposes, such as for Guest Mode and Kids Mode. It is possible because the Nexus 9 supports different accounts. It means that parents can make any apps and games available for them, but the Kids Mode will allow users to specify a few games at a time for their children to use. It is not only for controlling on how many games children can play, but there will be no risks of deleted apps or changed settings. There are other tablet models that support Kids Mode, such as the Amazon Kindle Fire, but not many other high-end models offer similar things.
4. 8 Megapixel Camera with OIS: Not everyone is expecting to capture great pictures with the tablets, but the Nexus 9 can produce more than decent snaps. Its 8Mp camera comes with an LED flash and OIS feature. While these features won’t replace our DSLR anytime soon, there will be significant improvements in low-light situations. Photos will be less blurry due to shakes when users take a picture. There is also a lens with f/2.4 aperture and this should help to improve the overall quality.
5. Great Price: Obviously, the Nexus 9 isn’t the cheapest Nexus tablet ever, but it is probably a model with the highest relative value. It comes with aluminium bezel, impressive performance level, great design and many others. That said, the iPad Air 2 is still more expensive than the Nexus 9. The 16GB version of the Nexus 9 is available for $399, while the 32GB model is $479 and the 4G LTE version with 32GB storage is $599. As comparison, the iPad Air 2 starts at $499 and the most expensive one with 4G LTE connectivity is $829. It is clear that the Nexus 9 is a great tablet with interesting pricing.
