Comparing the two, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Google Nexus 10 is too tricky, because both the competing products have so much in common and that is the reason why ordinary users will not be able to tell the difference. The only differences that common users can tell will be the glaringly apparent look and feel, but that is a subjective issue, and therefore cannot be much commented upon. Another important point to note is that the Google Nexus 10 itself is manufactured by Samsung under Google’s brand name. It is therefore natural to see Samsung’s philosophy and quality in Google Nexus 10 as well.
