5 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Tablet Computer Reviews

Apple A7 processor tablets have excellent ratings on average and across all tablets Apple is one of the leading brands.

4G Compatible

The iPad Air is 4G compatible. Most of the other similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad Air are not 4G compatible.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4G compatible tablets currently available including a cheaper tablet computer such as the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519391_price] or you might consider a better rated tablet computer such as the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple.

3G Compatible

The iPad Air is 3G compatible. Most of the other tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Air are not 3G compatible.

There are a number of alternative 3G compatible tablets currently available which you might also want to look at including a cheaper tablet computer such as the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519391_price] or you might consider a better rated tablet computer such as the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple.

Fairly Large Screen Size

With a screen size of 9.7 inches, the Apple iPad Air has one of the larger screen sizes amongst A7 processor tablets of this age. Across all the A7 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago the screen sizes range from 7.8" to 9.7".

There are a number of alternative 9.7" tablet computers currently available which you might want to look at including a cheaper tablet computer such as the Apple iPad Air[plb_2981411_price] or you might consider a higher rated tablet computer such as the Apple iPad Air[plb_3809771_price].

1080p Video Recording Mode

This tablet has a 1080p|720p video recording mode, which is the most commonly found video recording mode on similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Heavy

Across all the A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for more than two years the weights range from 330g to 480g. At 478 grams, the iPad Air is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the iPad Air.

Chart Edit

Very Low Pixel Density

The lowest pixel density of tablets of a similar type and age to the iPad Air is 260ppi and the highest is 330ppi. The Apple iPad Air has a quite low pixel density (only 264 pixels per inch) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Short Browsing Time

With a browsing time of only 9 hours, the Apple iPad Air has one of the shorter browsing times amongst similar spec tablets of this age. The browsing times of tablet computers of this spec and age range from 9h to 10h.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the iPad Air over two years ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Air has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Air.

Other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available that you might also want to look at include the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] both from Apple which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 32 gigabytes, the iPad Air has a fairly typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets of this age and spec.

If you are looking for a tablet computer with a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to consider the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] (64GB and cheaper), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519391_price] (128GB and cheaper) both from Apple.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution

The iPad Air has a pretty average rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad Air.

There are a number of other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper tablets such as the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] both from Apple.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two Processor Cores

The iPad Air is a two processor core tablet computer. That's average compared to the other 25 A7 processor tablets that were launched around the same time as the iPad Air that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 2 processor core tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144811_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

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)
Still comfortably fast enough for almost all apps and games
Beautifully designed and built
Will start to feel slower as time passes and more demanding apps are released
