8 Reasons For
Apple Has Excellent Tablet Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Apple tablets and specifically for Apple A7 processor tablet computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent ratings compared to other brands.
A Best Selling Tablet Computer
According to Amazon sales data, the iPad Air is one the fastest selling tablet computer currently available.
The iPad Air is 4G compatible, as are most of the other tablets of this spec and age.
If you want a tablet that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the iPad Air (£318.00), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£424.99) both from Apple.
The iPad Air is 3G compatible, as are most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the iPad Air.
If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might also want to look at the iPad Air (£318.00), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£424.99) both from Apple.
Very Large Screen Size
When compared to other tablets of this type and age, the screen size of the iPad Air of 9.7 inches is one of the largest. Tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the iPad Air have screen sizes of between 7.9" and 9.7", and the average screen size is 8.6".
Flash Storage Medium
This tablet computer has a Flash storage medium, which is typical of many tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
+3 More reasons for
1080p Video Recording Mode
The Apple iPad Air has a 1080p video recording mode which is higher than the 720p video recording mode found on most tablet computers of a similar age and type to it.
A 1080p video recording mode is in fact the best video recording mode across all tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the iPad Air.
A 720p video recording mode is the worst video recording mode across comparable types of tablet.
Features One Personal Info Management App
The iPad Air has a greater number of personal info management (PIM) than most tablets that have been available for around the same time as it. The most frequently featured personal info management app is Calendar, but this personal info management app is not featured on this tablet. The personal info management apps Calculator|Calendar|Events reminder|Games|Notes are also featured on this tablet computer.
4 Reasons Against
Very Low Pixel Density
The lowest pixel density of tablet computers of this age and spec is 260ppi, the highest is 330ppi, and the average pixel density is 310ppi. With a pixel density of only 264 pixels per inch, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly low pixel density compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Air.
Very Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 1.4 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers that are a similar age to the iPad Air. The maximum turbo frequencies of tablet computers that are a similar age to the iPad Air range from 1.1GHz to 3.3GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.1GHz.
When compared to other tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Air that we have checked, the weight of the Apple iPad Air of 478 grams is one of the heaviest. The weights of tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the iPad Air range from 330g to 480g, and the average weight is 390g.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 16 gigabytes, the Apple iPad Air has one of the smaller total storage capacities amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than a year ago is 16GB, the biggest is 130GB, and the average total storage capacity is 55GB.
+1 More reason against
5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this tablet computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the iPad Air.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£295.00) which is cheaper.
Average Rear Camera Resolution
The iPad Air has a pretty average rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the iPad Air.
We compared this tablet to all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£295.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Storage Capacity
The Apple iPad Air has a fairly average internal storage capacity (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been around for a similar time to the iPad Air.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available including cheaper tablets such as the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£295.00).
If this A7 processor tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£424.99) (64GB).
Two Processor Cores
The number of processor cores on the iPad Air is two which is average compared to the other eight A7 processor tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad Air that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2 processor core tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) (£295.00) which is cheaper.
