> In reply to Light-kun @ 2014-04-12 13:24 from uS}E - click to readAre you ok there? You reply to a post and you scream SYNC SYNC, who is talking about sync? Its about uploading content, which is a nightmare on iOS, and its a well known problem that is always mentioned by every professional reviewer as one of the main disadvantages of iOS, and you want to fix it by being obsessed with syncing, ok... Good luck.

You know very well whats wrong with the keyboard, why else are some people using third party keyboard apps to write messages and emails and then copy the text and go paste it in the email/messaging app. Its really stupid to try to force "corrected" words on us, always having to manually discard every single word. There are millions of autocorrect jokes on the web and you are saying its good, well...

You are wrong on all accounts. Bigger harddrives are in general faster because they have higher data density and/or reads from more platters simultaneously and thats a well known fact. That doesnt have anything to do with RAM though, you really think RAM is a storage?

I admit RAM wasnt causing the problem but you are still wrong.

Now i just need to find a way to shorten the time iOS decides to go unresponsive during animations and transitions. Would be nice if there were someone useful around.

I found that its iOS that is forcing the animations on me, if i tap anywhere before the animations/transitions are finished it doesnt register the tap, same retard method as WP8 uses, the OS simply does not respond while doing animations and thats hard getting used to, its inefficient and feels slow (not nearly as bad as WP though).

For example when i bring up the keyboard, it doesnt take long but its enough of a transition to make the system unresponsive just long enough ignore the first tap. Same happens when i use the appswitcher and bring up a running app, have to wait till its all the way up on the screen before it accepts input. Really stupid, Android and BlackBerry OS is so much better this way.

How to fix this? Can i turn off animations? Speed them up?

Pls no replys from fanboys who quote wikipedia about things he know nothing and "my dad has da fastest ram omfg"

Wiki A7 chip. You discover its fastest RAM available on the market.. with twice the channel bandwidth of all other chip makers. Only recently qualcomm is trying to catch up.

I ask you a simple question: 500GB harddisk is faster then 120GB harddisk? Ans: NO!. Capacity have nothing to do with speed, simply you can hold more stuff in memory thats all.

And do you have any idea how much memory is needed per OS? No? then don't complain.

You either have a fake iPad air, or use a lousy developed app on app store.

Bought ipad air, its good, much better than Android tablets. Seriously, android on tablets should be banned.

However, air, and iOS being smooth and fluid is a big lie, theres plenty of lag to annoy you, much more than you find in high end android devices like Xperia Z. I never believed ios was as smooth as the fans claim but still surprised. Put focus to a text input field and start typing immediately and often the first key press is not registered. So performance is a big disappointment but the rest is great, for now.

BlackBerry 10 is the fastest and smoothest os i have used on dual core, faster than most quad core androids, but ios doesnt impress, i guess the low ram is killing it, BlackBerry 10 phones have 2 GB, maybe thats why they are so much faster and smoother.

Man, you only have to plug in your device and open iTunes then hit sync. You can uncheck whatever data you don't want to have on your device. And syncing only takes a few minutes. It's as easy as that! You can even sync over WiFi. What is wrong with you, man? :DDDDDD
Btw, the keyboard's great. I don't have a hard time using one on my iPad Air and even on the iPhone 4s.

iTunes nowadays is not mandatory, nor is putting data on iPad requires itunes. And even if you use it, its easy, one press of sync.. ur device is backup.. And u can restore it on any other iDevices with just a click of a button. i have my iPhone 3gs's data on my iPhone 5s.. can u say the same for any android devices? Android = clean slate every 2 years ... no way to backup as efficiently.

And the reason u can have multiple keyboards on android shows how inefficient the stock one is.

> In reply to Light-kun @ 2014-04-04 13:20 from uS{% - click to readEase and functionality isnt the first that comes to mind when using iDevices, especially the keyboard is infinite inefficient and troublesome and by itself a very good reason to not buy iOS. Then iTunes, the true opposite of "Ease and functionality", thats like matter vs antimatter.

The thing is that all in all one have to admit that iOS sux less than Android on tablets, gaming performance for example. On a phone i take Android over iOS any day, neither of them are as good as BlackBerry 10 though.

Of course, the device was freakin' hot (literally). It hanged in the middle of minimizing. Batman then I had to reset the device. It hadn't crashed ever since.

Apple device owners just don't get some of the overrated features of Android. Ease and functionality are what matters instead of those.

Before you buy something, be sure to check the specs and all the things the device could offer you, and please, avoid saying negative things if you failed to do so.
