iPad 2nd Gen Review

1 Reason For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablets

We calculated the average reviews for all Apple tablets and also specifically for Apple A5 processor tablet computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

6 Reasons Against

Not 4G

Most tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago are not 4G. The iPad (2nd gen) is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might also be worth considering include the iPad Mini, or the iPad Mini (£365.40) both from Apple which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

Tablets that have been available for around the same time as the iPad (2nd gen) have internal storage capacitys of between 4GB and 64GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the Apple iPad (2nd gen) has a quite small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Tablet computers with a larger internal storage capacity that might be worth considering include the iPad Mini (32GB), or the iPad Mini (32GB) both from Apple which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

The biggest main camera resolution of the iPad (2nd gen) is 960 x 720 pixels. That's 25% less main camera resolution than the most common main camera resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad (2nd gen)

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this Apple tablet computer was released.

Average Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of 1 gigahertz, the Apple iPad (2nd gen) has a pretty standard processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the iPad (2nd gen).

If this Apple tablet computer has too few processor coress then you might want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (£499.00) (3 processor coress).
