Head-To-Head: Google Nexus 7 Vs. Apple iPad Mini

Cameras And Sound

The camera competition is a wash. Both tablets include 1.2MP fixed-focus front cameras and 5MP auto-focus rear cameras. Google hasn't put out details much beyond that, but we do know that Android 4.3 supports use of both cameras at once for effects such as picture-in-picture. We also know that the rear camera on Apple's small tablet contains a 2.4f aperture and five-element autofocus lens, and it can capture 1080p video with image stabilization and backside illumination. Apple's 1.2MP front camera (pictured) captures 720p video and offers photo and video geotagging. Both tablets include two speakers and stereo sound.
