henry, 23 Jan 2014Hi please help me to buy the ipad air
It is good????
Not just good.
Best battery, best viewing, best gesture support, best sleep wake feature, best game/app enjoyment, and best weight to size ratio.
But its a premium device, make sure you already have enough money for phone and PC/Mac before you consider this.
The other one that comes close is samsung's 2014 edition 10.1 tablet, heavier, less battery backup, harder to navigate and lack of optimised tablet apps.. but cheaper and is a all in one device.. consider the LTE version.
ganagus, 22 Jan 2014No, I don't agree with you. For tasks such as reading an ebook or wathing videos, larger scree... moreThe lack of android tablet optimised apps & the android pain to navigate is the reason for iPad's success.
Android have awesome launchers, but the apps are bloated phone versions. The navigation is horrible also.. the 3 software keys / or the 3 hardware buttons is a pain to press in 10 inch formfactor unless you have 3 arms.
If you have rooted your tablets, you should install GMD GestureControl, you know what you are missing all those great navigation gesture already on the iPad.
kalyan16, 22 Jan 2014Yes i do agree with you, instead of tablet you can go for a fablet like galaxy note 3, xperia ... moreNo, I don't agree with you. For tasks such as reading an ebook or wathing videos, larger screen of a tablet is more suitable. Taking notes with an S-Pen (Samsung Note 2014) is also better done in an 10 inch display.

If you fell like android is waste you can root your android phones and put ios into it or you can make partition of it and use android, ios simultaneously, hmm many people don't know this so they still go for iphone and ipads which have less performance than android phones. I suggest better go with samsumg because we have lot of customization options not only that we can find lot number of features. Present leading(benchmark results) smart phone is samsung galaxy round even better than note 3.

iPad destroy old casual PC using.. never did wait 5 mins for PC to bootup just to browse web anymore.
ios has no back button and overall ios is the worst operating system ...............
i just waste my money.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2014I still have iPad first gen.
It still have the same godly battery.. I never use it.. so i j... moreThats what im saying, people have tablets and are feeling pressured to buy one if they dont have already but they end up collecting dust. I regret buying tablet, its utterly useless for someone who have an ok smartphone with reasonable display size (4 inch is not reasonable size, maybe thats why iphone owners use tablets more than Android phone owners).
Now my daughter want iPad Mini w.Retina, i take the chance since its smaller and hopefully isnt as useless and wasted as a regular iPad or 10 inch androids. I suggested she buy a 5 inch phone instead, much better for games and browsing, a true all in one device but kids, and girls in particular, dont want to be practical, trends matters more.
For adults i think a combination of the hype, lack of knowledge and unrealistic expectations is the main driving force for buying tablets. For iphone owners its the need for a bigger display device, obviously a 4 inch phone is not a viable all in one device.
Ali, 13 Jan 2014Could you help me which one is better? Ipad Air or Mini 2It mostly depends on which size you prefer.
vijju, 20 Jan 2014Apple must have improve RAM for next genWhy?The performance is amazing already.
ozmoi, 16 Jan 2014Well so far the battery life of the Air is great, been using it for two months now for Skype,i... moreI still have iPad first gen.
It still have the same godly battery.. I never use it.. so i just have to charge it 12 times per year. Thats 1 charge good for 1 mth standby ;D. It still receive notification & stuff from apps.
So i will not worry about battery so much.
kevin, 03 Jan 2014my ipad air closes apps and i can't open 70% of apps WTF? i use to love apple and defend ios a... moreMaybe your not closing some of the apps that you use and everything is running on multitasks. it would help if you close some of the apps before you use another app.
ro do a reboot like all electronic devices. my Air is great and really fast. better double check your Air maybe its fake one.
dipak, 05 Jan 2014hey guys can i make call????????????Regular Calls or sms no, you can't. you can use Skype calls,Skype Video, iMessage, FaceTime, viber, etc. Just buy a Regular Phone for calling and Texting.
Enian Look, 07 Jan 2014it has no lag of video chat !Video lags on chat is not a hardware issue. it depends on your wifi or data connection that you use.
Anomynous, 14 Jan 2014Same question here, buying for my daughter, cant decide. How is battery life of Air, anyone? I... moreWell so far the battery life of the Air is great, been using it for two months now for Skype,iMessage,Browsing and etc. At the end of the day i still have 40 % of the battery, with Wifi only. if i use it outside with the Data Sim usually it would ended up 20 %. but that is already impressive with a heavy user like me.
the Question is how long with it stay that way. battery life issue is very common to all electronics just buy yourself an extra charger to bring with you anywhere.

Ipad Air or Mini 2both iPad Air and Mini 2 are good, Since the mini 2 is on retina screen. it looks great on a smaller screen. but if you wear reading glasses, i think the Air is for you because its bigger.
I got the Air because it was a bigger change from the iPad 4. Its way Faster, And it feels great While holding it with the smaller Bezel. and it very thin.
the only change happen on the mini 2 was the speed and retina screen. but still a worthy change if you decide to get the mini 2.
rens, 11 Jan 2014the ipad air wifi and cellular can i used it as a phone like calling and sending sms using as... moreData only, no support for voice or sms over cellular on Apple tablets but you can call and message with Skype, Viber, Whatsapp and whatever you like as long as its using the data connection.
