So with that, we’re now happy to recommend the Nexus 9 as an Android tablet you should buy. The hardware has held up reasonably well to punishment, and the software has finally gotten up to our standards after the latest updates. If you’re looking for a larger Android tablet, the Nexus 9 should now be in the conversation.
With the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablets with 4:3 aspect ratio and drool-tastic Super AMOLED screens soon to come, I don’t see how the Nexus 9 can even stay in the race. Unless Google does a massive price cut. And even then … no microSD card slot.
