Ipad Air Review
Ipad Air comes with 64 bit Apple A7 dual core 1.4 GHz CPU, plus 1 GB of RAM and a 5 megapixel BSI camera at the back.
Inside the box we find the usual charger and Lightning USB cable, plus some leaflets on how to use the device.
The body build with aluminum material and at the bottom we can notice a pair of stereo speaker. The iPad Air also features dual microphones on the bottom edge to capture clearer sound and reduce background noise during FaceTime calls.
It measures 240 x 169.5 x 7.5mm compared to the 241.2 x 185.7 x 9.4mm iPad 4, which 28% lighter and 20% thinner than old iPad Retina by using Apple’s own stats.
The screen is perfect and i didn’t encountered that few iPad Air owners have been complaining about issues with the screens on their new tablets. Reports have mentioned dark vertical or horizontal bars and yellow tint on one side.
Cameras also get an update with the iPad Air that offers 1080p video calling instead of 720p on the last model. It also has a new 5-megapixel shooter that gets bigger pixels on the sensor, which does lead to better photos.
Buying Guide: iPad Air Or iPad Mini 2
At the end of iPad air review, some apple users may asking which iPad should i buy ? The major different is is the display size, 9.7 inch vs. 7.9 inch which iPad Air and iPad mini 2 specs are same in many ways – both iPads are retina display, same processor, same cameras, same camera and others.
