I like how Apple is called out for using inferior technology (that it specs and designs itself) when it also uses its own In House OS.
Android is free. It's cheaper to tweak a free OS for your device than build your own that repeatedly aces benchmarks

I use ipad 2017 9.7 heavily for over a year now and rarely any issues have occured if at all.

"The screen is awful" when 4k content isn't even readily available for mo... morelets do a comparison shall we:
Samsung Tab 3 launched March 2017, This ipad March 2018
Screen: Super AMOLED 16MColors, ipad 2018 still using 20+ year old LED...LOL
Camera: Yes people use it 13MP/5MP, ipad 2018 8MP/1.3MP...How do you video conference with a resolution from 1997???? LOL
Pencil: Samsung Included, Ipad 2018 $100
You said cheap? Let do math if you can. Samsung LTE $600 & Decent Case = $640
Ipad 2018 LTE $460 plus pencil $100 plus case $600 (ipad cases rarely $40 fyi)
Battery Life: Easy Tie My S3 still gets 10 hrs of video over wifi
Battery Charge: S3 fast charger 5% to 100% 4 hrs with 50% in 1 hr
Ipad2018: Well this is a fact, it takes about 18 hrs. I know because my wife has one.
Storage: Mine has 32GB w/64GB added which came with it BTW. Ipad 64GB, you do not want to know the price for the 256GB version...OMG
If you don't work then $330 iPad is not bad but you are paying for inferior technology. Only thing that works great is iOS and the processor combo, my parents and my wife like Apple because its easy. Its like a 70's station wagon with a 454. Fast and easy to drive. I need split screen and video conference on the go. Just can't do that with the iPad. I'm not a hater since we own an iphone 7s, ipad mini 4, iPad Air 2, Macbook Pro that was $2800 and this new addition, all my wife's.Me S9+ G-Tab 3, HP Spectre 360 2-1 4k Touch, Asus ROG (back-up laptop) G-75s. Tech on my side is incomparable because they all use different processors, screens, GPUs, RAM. Apple is the same tech different shape! Besides the Mac Pro which has the same specs as my spectre minus 4k touch and m.2 HDD, but for $1300 cheaper!! Its about preference and value. This is MY opinion so don't respond with anything but your own OPINION. Please be logical and don't say "no one uses the camera". Why would Apple include Facetime preloaded, or Bloatware as you call it if no one uses it? Prove me wrong.
Just some other fun facts. I stream and control anything to my Samsung Tv and LG with $55 Chromecast 4k HDR. And there is plenty of content on Netflix & Online. Ipad....lol
AnonD-4616, 29 Mar 2018Show me one better tablet which can draw illustrations with oen or pencil. I'm a Designer and ... moreUnder $300? Where? I can't find it for less than $329 wifi only, add data and jumps to $460 and does not come with the pencil, thats another $100. Add a decent case and we are at $620 or $680 (cases with keyboard) plus easy. What are you talking about? Cheap? Whats with the 1990's front camera for facetime 1.3Mp??? Seriously
for me i have the ipad and to be honest its really worth buying the camera is good the processor is super fast the battery is long lasting and its support apple pencil
Anticleon, 10 Apr 2018Take the idea he is has conveyed, not the grammar. 2GB RAM? Lol. This is already unusable. for android devices? yes 2gb ram is unusable but you cant deny that iOS is different beast when come to RAM management.. i mean look iphone X, its still using only 3gb ram and yet it can manage many app/games easily. Also i look up gaming review for this ipad and damn it can run many games that i interested very easily compared to any android tablet in same price range.
AnonD-716026, 18 May 2018There's no point for a review anywayWhy not? Apple Pencil Support, new processor, or is it because it's not an Eastern made product like the new Samsung Tab that's coming out?
Jman, 17 May 2018Still no review, yet they are all over the next Samsung tablet. There's no point for a review anyway
Limsk, 13 May 2018Can anyone advise if I can install WhatsAppÂ’s in this lpad. How?you need a LTE supported (sim card) ipad model to install whatsapp. In just WiFi model you cannot do that.
The battery life is very good but the charging sucks so bad. It takes forever to charge this thing with the given charger.
E1ronia, 04 May 2018Great product indeed! Really fast without bugs. But the battery.. how long it lasts?iPad 9.7 battery life is superlative, the best of every mobile device.
Great product indeed! Really fast without bugs. But the battery.. how long it lasts?
