Apple IPad Air 16GB WiFi Review
The Apple iPad Air definitely lives up to expectations with its remarkably light frame and high tech features. An exceedingly light body combines Apple's trademark design solutions with excellent sound and image reproductions.
Before the iPad Air was released, some may have argued that it would have been impossible to make tablets any lighter or even that they are already as light as they could possibly be. However, Apple went beyond the public’s expectations by reducing the weight of its already popular product, the iPad 4, by nearly 29% while maintaining and even improving the products functions. The iPad Air weighs in at an astonishing 469g, which is almost 200g lighter than the original iPad 4. The product’s width was also reduced by 10% from about 188mm to 169.5 mm, which is incredibly impressive considering how many features it supports.
For a device with an already impressive track record, the fact that Apple has managed to create a sleek and stylist new interface that has an even better screen resolution, is quite remarkable. This new and improved interface allows text to be more easily read than the previous generation. Apple has also added a scratchproof protective glass that can resist those ever-so-common greasy fingerprints that get left behind after use as well as accidentally dropping the product straight onto concrete. However great the iPad Air’s screen may be, it still fails to solve the issue with reflectiveness. On sunny days, you can very easily find yourself staring more at yourself than whatever it is you are trying to read.
One would think that since Apple is such a powerhouse in the music industry field, its devices would have just as impressive sound systems. The only admirable qualities the iPad Air has in terms of its sound system are that its audio is relatively loud and manages to remain crisp and clear while also more accurately portraying voices. Otherwise, it is nothing short of ordinary but remaining satisfactory enough to its users for continued use. With its rear-facing speakers pointing away from the user, it makes it difficult for unaided listening. The only effective method to fix this is to cup your hands by the speakers in order to aim the sound towards yourself. Otherwise, it would probably be best for Apple to consider looking into some front-facing speakers so users wouldn’t have to grieve about this issue when they are trying to watch that last episode of Orange is the New Black on Netflix.
This device does, however, live up to its creator’s name. It performs wonderfully and the flaws do not even make up for how many excellent qualities Apple managed to fit into this crazy light contraption. With its 10-inch screen and 64-bit processor, it definitely serves as a great next generation device. At approximately $500, it may be a bit pricey for those that are skeptical to the brand, but for an Apple device of this caliber, it is definitely a price worth paying. However, I would definitely recommend buying a screen protector and case in order to prevent the screen from having to endure the infamous cracked screen that a number of Apple devices have suffered in past models.
