4 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Tablet Reviews

We checked 6,464 owner and expert reviews for Apple tablet computers and found that on average Apple has excellent ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Apple has excellent ratings specifically for its A7 processor tablets.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

Across all the tablet computers of a similar age and type to the iPad Air the internal storage capacity range from 8GB to 130GB. The iPad Air has one of the larger internal storage capacity (64 gigabytes) amongst A7 processor tablets of this age.

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] (128GB), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519391_price] (128GB) both from Apple.

Fairly Large Screen Size

Across all the similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad Air the screen sizes range from 7.8" to 9.7". The iPad Air has a quite large screen size (9.7 inches) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Recording Mode

This tablet computer has a 1080p|720p video recording mode, which is typical of many A7 processor tablets that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Not 4G Compatible

The iPad Air is not 4G compatible. Most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been available for more than two years are also not 4G compatible.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144809_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3G Compatible

Most tablets of this age and spec are not 3G compatible. The iPad Air is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit


The average weight of tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Air is 390g. With a weight of 469 grams, the iPad Air is fairly heavy compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Three Years Ago

Apple released the iPad Air over three years ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519374_price] which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the iPad Air has a pretty average rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablets that are a comparable age to the iPad Air.

Chart Edit

Two Processor Cores

The iPad Air is a two processor core tablet computer. That's average compared to the other 25 tablets that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

Other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available which you might also want to look at include the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a tablet computer with more processor cores then you might want to look at the Gigaset QV830[plb_2981383_price] (4 processor cores).

The iPad Air 2 is no doubt a five-star product. However, while Apple may have improved the processor, added Touch ID and tweaked the display in the Air 2, we don't feel it's enough to justify... Read more…

Slim and light (although a little thicker and heavier than iPad Air 2)
