iPad Mini sure is selling like hotcakes, but the tablet that made 7 inch tablets popular is not Mini, but Nexus 7 tablet. Both tablets look amazing and pack quite a lot of power under their thin shells. So, how do they perform in our benchmark tests? Read more to find out.
Benchmark Mini Nexus 7
Browsermark 122053 123434
Sunspider 1481 1673
Geekbench 752 1379
GL Bench 2.5 25FPS 14FPS
As you can see the iPad Mini beat Nexus 7 in Browsermark (higher score is better), Sunspider (lower score is better) and GL Benchmark 2.5 (higher score is better). Only in the Geekbench benchmark, the tegra 3 powered Nexus 7 beat the iPad Mini and that too by huge margin (1379 vs 752).
Personally, I would still take any Android tablet over iPad Mini as there are just way too many limitation on the iOS platform (to name a few – Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth file transfer, micro SD card support, USB mass storage mode, true multitasking and so on). Heck, even a Windows RT tablet like Surface RT is way better than iPad Mini.
