Our both devices are easy to carry around though MIIX needs to be packaged between forces in bag while transporting.

With the processor speed of 2.3GHz in Nexus Lenovo is far away with the processor speed of 1.33 GHz. More speed comes with more graphics processing and more productivity in lesser time.

Tablets are more into entertainment business. Another point that is kept in consideration by tablet buyers is the sound quality. A mono speaker is installed in MIIX 3 that gives out thin sound that comes from one side of the device. Connecting external speakers or headphones is recommended for movies. Nexus have BoomSound speakers installed that produces clear and vibrant sound. Unlike other tablets, it’s speakers does not face bottom or back of the tablet.

Because of slim structure and light in weight tablets does not offer much connectivity options but you will be accommodated with all necessary connections. Other than wireless connections; Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC, there are other necessary USB ports and microphone jacks in both of these devices.

Other Features

You cannot call Nexus affordable. This time as google have made it advance and better than previous versions that have also become little bit out of budget. Lenovo is still in your budget and inexpensive. Nexus will stay active for 9 hours and 30 minutes while MIIX 3 will stay with you only for 6 hours.
