Oh you people. :D
For ages there were comments how Apple is too expensive. And now they launch more affordable model that still does things greatand everyone bashes it to grave.
I dont need stylus, two tone or what not. Not dor the price of 700USD. 330USD for fluent tablet that 99% of use for consuming media is perfect compromise. Apple finaly gives choices to consumers and i applause to it.
And i still cant believe that people argue about amount of RAM/megapixels. It just DONT work that way. You cant compare nVidia to ATI by sheer amount od RAM, and you CANT compare products that are different OS. NVidia ALWAYS has worse specs on paper and is ALWAYS better than higher spec ATI. And cists more. I have ATI but that is just how it is. There is real world usability. And i dont mean geekbench. You take tablet, use it and see how responsive it is. Android will lag because it is jack of all trades OS. Samsung doesnt spent money to develop it from scratch, LG dont, Huawei dont etc. And that is why Android is not optimized. And its why ita cheaper, too. They dobt spend 5% of resources on developement of Android OS while Apple does. And they charge it.
Its like bashing Windows PC for costing more than Linux PC. There is a price when Windows is included with pc, and its usually around 100Euro here.
Stop hating and realize that we, consumers, profit from competition. :)
Dont cheat by apple ipad that more cheaper than android tablet. When you use apple ipad, you will addictive by mac os software. The apple phone is bad to android phone and more expensive than android phone. The camera was bad on apple phone that it the most higher is 13Mp , the android phone has higer camera phone than apple that was can up to 23Mp . The graphical core on android phone was higher than apple phone that is the android phone can up to deca core 10 core processer than 6 core processer hexa core in apple phone. Dont compare the low cost android phone and tablet to apple phone. Compare some such as sony, sony XA1, Oppo and asus! when you use apple mac os tablet!you must hate to use android software phone. Dont be fool to you. Use your mind!
My first tablet and I am pleased with my choice. Didn't want to go with an android tablet as recently bought an iPhone and wanted a tablet that works with my phone. I went for the 128gb wifi + cellular option, haven't had a chance to really try out the cellular apart from a Speedtest but overall the device works and does what I want it to do, it can play games, watch videos, browse the internet - fantastic.
The screen is brilliant even though it isn't laminated like the air 2 but my mother has an air 2 and side by side you could hardly tell the difference!!!
just got this dude with 128GB storage,
and i hate some aspect,
such as air gap, since everyone else mention it, I wouldn't notice if everyone else not mention it, good news is space gray one make it least visible
everything else is still good, and iOS 11 on this device still acceptable, some stutter still there since it still BETA, and its been huge speed bump from my iPad 4th,
and for people wanna buy 32gb variant, i think u should consider the bigger one, since just from apps and some games my iPad already have 100gb storage left, while with 32gb variant u only have about 27gb free space, thats not included some offline videos, movie, etc
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2017Listen Apple, there's still a huge market for iPad Mini. Do something about it, please.Stop buying iPad Pros, boycott it! Its a selling gimmick from Apple to boost profit only. Then maybe iPad mini will get some love.
See what iPad Pros have done to the iPad market.
1. They suck up all the good CPUs.
2. They introduce worthless accessories, like the smart keyboard / pencil.. without mouse.
3. The price shoot thru the roof. While iPad mini should have A10, and iPad should have A10x now, while cost the same as before.
4. They try to attack the Pro and business markets, only to be laughed at by Pro users and business people. i.e. achieve nothing.
5. They spend worthless time innovating with the pencils, as if the entire Pro industry are artist and drawing people.
6. They totally destroy the smart cover usefulness with putting you in the lock screen, so you have to press the touchID or home button to access your home page if you have notification or passcode enabled.
So simple to make a good iPad product.
1. SMS / Voice call.
2. Mouse / trackpad support, for those who like a keyboard.
3. Revamp smart cover, to work well with touch iD, simplify the process.
I just bought mine last week and so far everything's great EXCEPT when it comes to video streaming. I love the big screen so it's perfect for watching videos which is the main reason I bought this but when it comes to watching on Youtube or videos on the web its really really bad. I cant mainly blame it to my Internet connection because I've compared the load time from my old android tab. What should I do?
AnonD-681268, 01 Jul 2017Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1... moreI forgot to add. The quality of refinement in the highest volume is not the best. It's in the ok margin. But it is not the clearest. Don't be discouraged to buy. It's just not the best. It is not as bad as you think. It rly won't catch your attention until you rly listen to it.
AnonD-681268, 01 Jul 2017Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1... moreHey, it's quite ok. I just bought one yesterday and it works like a charm. It has loud speakers. Louder than my a5 2016 and 2017. Like a lot louder. It can fill a room quite ok. As long as it's just a bed room. It's pretty loud. Also I don't think downgrading is a recommended option. For the price it's rly worth to buy this new one. Although if you have the cash go with the pro.
Hi everyone plss how's the sound quality iam curious plss tell me is it worse or same as air 1 how how good is it slashing their price means downgrading something right
I Sold my iPad 4 for 199$ just because of iOS 11 and this iPad,
well even there is some price difference in my Country like 390$ for 32gb instead of 329$ i still can call this affordable, for an iPad, and for iOS 11.
i just need hope there is no lag since A9 chip need to push 1536x2048 pixel instead 1080x1920 pixel on 6s+
best p/p ipad.
due to the non-laminated screen, it's not a huge deal while retina display is so beautiful.
no pen - no problem, i can use adonit pen as well
no smart keyboard - no problem, i can use 3rd bluetooth keyboard as well (like logitech,..)
40 grams heavier is really a big deal for you? absolutely not.
i love it.
Listen Apple, there's still a huge market for iPad Mini. Do something about it, please.
Apple is simplifying its iPad product lines, and trying to dominate the market by offering:
iPad for regular users with value price.
iPad Pro for power users with premium price.
AnonD-675133, 06 Jun 2017It may be a "budget iPad", but it's a pretty sweet one for the price ($300 from staples.com). ... moreYup a dub!! $300 what i paid bargain for apple product best there is in tablets! ......Only thing i wish they'd put FLASH on it ughhhhhhhhhhh
AnonD-675897, 09 Jun 2017Should I get this or the iPad mini 4? I am an iPad 4 user and is thinking of an upgrade to... moreiPad mini 4 won't be slow at all but I recommend this device 1 because it support better multi tasking due to better chipset 2 it will be easier for you to taking notes using your stylus because of a bigger screen. other than that I think the only difference is size of the screen.
Should I get this or the iPad mini 4?
I am an iPad 4 user and is thinking of an upgrade to help in my post-graduate studies. I like the screen size and portability of the Mini 4 but I'm worried that it will slow down after some time because the Mini 4 is already 1.5years old.
AnonD-673762, 01 Jun 2017should i upgrade to this cause i have a ipad 3 its not working well?What is your usage of your iPad???? If ordinary tasks and playing games Is your purpose it is more than enough. finally apple came up with something valuable for purchase and that's this device I purchased an iPad Air 2 1.5 year ago for 130$ more on a lower specs and both perform relatively the same I played some games on both of them are very smooth but if you are a graphist or a designer go for pro model they handle designing apps better. There is no obvious difference for playing games between pro ones and air 2 or this =)
AnonD-674656, 05 Jun 2017This is a budget iPad, not an iPad Pro successor.It may be a "budget iPad", but it's a pretty sweet one for the price ($300 from staples.com). Does everything I need it to do and does it well.
