It's true the Nexus 10 is definitely more powerful. The dual-core Cortex A15 at ?1.7GHz? is quite a power house. The iPad 4 does have its own pros though, such as a more powerful GPU -- by about 60% in the Egypt HD test.

More battery life along with faster performance.

Yes they optimise it very well. The Swift cores in the A6 and A6X have very aggressive power management. They idle very low. On top of that they're using Samsung's High-K metal gate on a 32nm process which both reduces power consumption and leakage.

because cpu performance matters a lot on a tablet?

the nexus 10 has like 40% less battery

Always take power consumption numbers and battery life with a pinch of salt.... different people get difference results.

I heard that there are talks about switching manufacturers (I imagine the recent lawsuits are probably a contributor). Any idea on how their future chips will be affected by this considering they use Samsung tech?

What do you need a native Youtube app for? You can view Youtube videos without any issue in the web browser or you can go to the App Store and download the official Youtube app or one of a dozen other highly rated ones like Jasmine and McTube.

The youtube app is not supported on ipads since iOS6.... so why should I have to use another method?

I can download other map apps and the official youtube app from the app store.

So, you = failure...

You want me to link it for you?

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/youtube/id544007664?mt=8

I'm using the official Youtube app on my iPhone 5 and iPad 2 (with iOS 6). Want a screen shot?



GPU + battery performance is far more important than CPU for tablets. A6X's CPU is more than good enough, however the PowerVR SGX 554MP4 is far far stronger than what's in the Nexus 10. Not to mention the better battery life + the unrivaled number of tablet optimized apps.
