Today were gonna be talking
about Apple AirPad 2 review, I know this can be a pretty simple relatively easy Apple AirPad 2 review because overall as a category these iPad’s and basically any large tablet have sort of slow down into this ERASION year by year. We see them get a little bit better but there aren’t that many drastic changes made so really the easiest way to show, this is to give you a list of the ways its changed versus the iPad air one, so these are the changes made to create the iPad air pad 2.
Here comes to the number one is the iPad air to you is thinner and lighter than the first iPad air, so the first one was already really thin and light but this new air 2 is just 0.9 six pounds so lighter and 6.1 millimeters thin so thinner than any other tablet out there, leave me that translates really well from paper and just numbers to real hardware and holding in the hand so the bill that this thing is almost surreal, it’s completely made it metal all around. which is great and has rounded sides and chamfered edges all the way around to you and it kind of feels like the display is attached to almost nothing is at this point I mean this is kinda the reason why I say feels like large tablets are hitting their stride right now if you show this iPad air to someone ten years ago we’ve in five years ago it probably flip out think it’s impossibly thin there’s no way that’s real but it’s not just about fitness a fact that it’s also lighter means it’s just as easy as any other tablet to hold in the hand and while definitely not a one-handed tablet its much easier to hold with one hand and type and poke with the other hand when this happens so late like this so the side dazzles are thinned out a little but there’s still plenty of room to rest your thumb so overall it’s really well thought out, I mean the design we’ve seen it before to set a standard for build quality and it’s pretty deserving of the name unique works with this new thinner and lighter hardware is that the mute switch, that’s been on the site is every single iPad and iPhone since the beginning is now gone it’s been replaced with their software toggle it in the quick sayings IOS 8.
Even think it that the tablet is too thin for this is Just in I guess a design decision by Apple conscious choice to not have it but the other downside going so thin and light is this space in size or bit smaller and that means you have a smaller battery but the thing is it’s still a great battery life for tablet I didn’t even notice having to charge in more adverse is any other iPad it has great stamina last basically all day with any use and has a classic iPad ridiculous standby time where you can leave an 85 percent not use it for a week and pick it up to use it and it’ll be right ready at like eighty-two percent so technically yes it is a smaller battery it’s a 15 percent smaller cell coming at seven thousand three hundred forty million barrels and yes I should be mad at them for sacrificing battery just to make it thinner again but it’s at the point where I haven’t actually yet noticed a difference in battery life so I guess that’s something I OS on a tablet has going for it now one the biggest.
Best improvements on the iPad air to you is its new display it’s still a Retina display and it still has the same for by threeaspect ratio and 2048×1536 resolution so the same great colors and color reproduction a brightness levels and everything like that but it’s now a fully laminated display which actually ironically means less air between the glass and the panel so this and the anti-reflective coating is supposed to give the new screen a much more glare free look at the image is closer to the surface of the glass and actually started pretty much seem like I was touching the pixels like the image was floating right on top of the iPad as I touched a and the right to display looks great except I really thought that about the old iPad screen so maybe they all agree honestly probably won’t be able to tell the difference in TC them side by side actually think time losses speed test accidentally does a really good job showing the difference between the display on the iPad here two and the original a rolling Apple after I watch it but besides that I did knows a little bit of a black cap around the edges a display just a little bit of a gap it’s something I’ve noticed other laminated displays have to you and it would be a little distracting sometimes but a lot of times I just didn’t even notice and would be less noticeable on the grey iPad which has black friend basil’s instead of white.
