Normally, we’d say that the numerical figure attached to cameras don’t matter when it comes to defining their quality, but with this comparison, we beg to differ. Hands down, the 5-megapixel camera of the Nexus 10 blows away the measly 1-megapixel snapper of the Surface RT right out of the water. Above all, it’s the sharper visuals produced by the Nexus 10 that obliterates the hazy and flat images put out by the Surface RT. In terms of color reproduction, we notice more saturation going on with the Surface RT as well. Sure, it’d take a lot for us to instinctively use a tablet to snap photos, but if these are the only things around at the moment, we’d undeniably stick with the Nexus 10.

Quite simply folks, it’s hard to imagine we’re dealing with “high-def” video recording here, but the Nexus 10 appears to be the lesser of two evils. As a whole, they’re nothing impressive over other things, however, it’s the slightly better looking details of the Nexus 10’s results that makes us choose it more. Unfortunately, they share the same distractive element of heavy artifacting, which regrettably softens their results.

Frankly, there are specific aspects with their music players that stand out – such as the cool 3D carousel feature of the Google Play Music app and the overall dynamic visual of the Surface RT’s music player. Partly due to the positioning of its speakers, which disperse audio towards us as we’re holding it, the Nexus 10 pumps out the stronger volume tones.

Posing very little for the two, high-definition 1080p videos play flawlessly thanks to their speedy processor. However, the added brilliance factor of the Nexus 10’s display makes it easily the preferred tablet to watch videos.
