Tablet weighs 340 gram so it is difficult to use for long durations due to more weight than most other tablets but the smartphone is lighter.

Sound features are same in both tablets.
No alert types are available in Nexus 10 and Nexus 7. These have loud speaker facility with stereo speakers. Also, supports 3.5 mm audio jack for hearing audios through 3.5 mm jack head phones.
Samsung Google Nexus 10 and Asus Google Nexus 7 are available in two versions. One is 16 GB internal memory version and other is 32 GB internal memory version. If you want lot of storage space to store data then you can choose 32 GB or you want less then choose 16 GB. But note that the price of 32 GB is more than that of 16 GB internal memory. But the main differences are RAM facility. Nexus 10 has 2 GB RAM and Nexus 7 has 1 GB RAM. These are do not support external memory for storing data. In my opinion, there is no need to buy 32 GB internal memory for ordinary use. But if you want to store lot of movies and audios, then you can choose 32 GB internal memory. Any way it is a premium feature for Samsung Google Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 tablets. So we can conclude that it is not enough for storing data in tablets.
In my experience Nexus 10 is better than Nexus 7. Because it has double RAM than Nexus 7. Other features are same in both devices.
Data transfer features
Samsung Google Nexus 10 does not support any network features. Because it is not a GSM device and we cannot use GSM features in anywhere. So it does not support GSM, EDGE, and 3G features. But we can access internet through WLAN only. It supports data transfer facilities like Bluetooth and USB version 2 facilities. Its Bluetooth version 3.0 with A2DP facility provides faster data transfer between other Bluetooth devices. Near field communication facility also provides beautiful data transfer facility with dual side. So we can conclude that there is no problem in transfer data in other devices. But we can only access internet through WLAN. So it is a disappointment from this tablet.
Samsung Google Nexus 7 does not support any network features like GSM are EDGE; it is not a GSM device. Same as Nexus 10 it can access internet through WLAN only. It has Bluetooth and Micro USB facility. Near Field Communication is also available in Nexus 7.
In my opinion, Nexus 10 is better than Nexus 7 in data transfer facilities. Nexus 10 has USB facility and Nexus 7 has only Micro USB facility. NFC is available in dual side in Nexus 10. But, Nexus 7 has only NFC facility.

Secondary camera is used for video calling with peoples. Samsung Google Nexus 10 has 1080p@30fps video recording facility with which we can record large amount of HD videos through this tablet. So we can conclude that it is a good feature from Google because it has good quality camera and video recording feature.
Nexus 7 has 1.2 Mega Pixels primary camera on the rear side. It has 720p video recording facility and video calling facility.
In my experience, Nexus 7 is not good for image capture and video recording. Also, no secondary camera is available in Nexus 7. So Nexus 10 is good in camera and video features.

It provides better performance from this tablet. Also, it has Mali-T604 graphics processor for better gaming experience. So it is good for gaming and other performances.

In my experience, Nexus 10 is better than Nexus 7. But, Nexus 7 has Quad-core processor. Anyways, Dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor is better than the processor of Nexus 7.

This is a bit of a biased article going for the Nexus 10.
Nexus 10 does not have Tegra graphics card. Many games are specified as "THD" (google THD Android games). Will these run on the Nexus 10?
You forgot to mention the "bulk" of the Nexus 10. I can easily fit my Nexus 7 in my pants pockets.
I can't comment further because I don't own a Nexus 10 myself, but I am a proud and happy owner of Asus Nexus 7. Peace out.
