Nexus 9: Top 10 features of Google’s iPad Air rival

The Google Nexus 9 was unveiled alongside the Nexus 6 smartphone and is the second tablet built by Taiwanese firm HTC.

HTC attempted to join the tablet market in 2011 with the Flyer. However, with a disappointing set of internal specifications and a heavy design, the HTC tablet never lived up to its name and failed to take off.

A few years on HTC has clearly learned from its mistakes and has loaded the Nexus 9 with a wealth of top-end components and innovative design features.

In fact, the Nexus 9 is so full of interesting features some users have justifiably been left confused, or missed some of its best assets.

Here to help we’ve picked out the Nexus 9’s 10 best features.

10. Sleek design

Thanks to Apple’s efforts, everyone now expects their devices to be sleek, sexy affairs, with gorgeous curves and eye-catching lines, and the Nexus 9 definitely has it going on in the design stakes.

As we noted in our Nexus 9 review, the device is light and easy to hold, thanks to its 425g weight and 154x228x8mm dimensions, and the build quality and style make it a lovely thing to use and just generally fawn over.

Furthermore, the Nexus 9 comes in a variety of colours, as opposed to basic black like previous Nexus tablets, and is also the first Google tablet to include metal in its design.

This means it has metal sides that connect to a matte finish polycarbonate back. It doesn’t quite match the feeling of quality of the iPad Air 2, but it does feel significantly more top-end than its predecessors.
