Apple iPad 4 Review

Apple has its name synonymous to class and innovation. Apple iPad 4 has been a significant development to iPad since iPad. iPad 4 has a better and faster processor, it sees through fast response and performance. Apple iPad 4 comes with Siri which can do much more and recognises speech better than on its earlier platform. Most of it has still remained to same yet so different.


Design

Apple has yet again changed nothing about this 9.7 inch tablet, even in terms of design. It has the familiar minute curves around the corners tracing the edges really well. For a tablet this big, the Apple iPad 4 is extremely thin at 9.4 mm. It’s comfortable to move it around since it is not too heavy either, it weighs about 650 grams. The built is what Apple is known for, the amazing metallic finish feels amazing in your hands and there is nothing you want to change about it.

Display

Apple iPad 4 Display
The iPad 4 also fancies a 9.7 inch retina display with the same resolution of 1536×2048 pixels that we saw on the iPad 3. The detailing of everything you see on this beautiful display is really sharp. The colours mix up really beautifully. View it from every angle and yet the display does not lose its brightness and is still visible. 1080p full HD content looks very beautiful and moves like liquid on your screen. The Quad Core graphics on board help your display view your games in the best possible way. Long hours of entertainment and reading or gaming never get old when you have an iPad 4.

Camera

The primary sensor on the iPad 4 is the same 5MP one on the iPad 3. But there is the much needed improvement upon the front facing camera which is now a 1.2MP camera which can stream 720p HD video over video calls. FaceTime is available via Wi-Fi. The 5MP camera takes pretty nice photographs but let’s face it, your smartphone is going to be the device you use and if not then a point and shoot or DSLR if you really care about the image. Casual photographs are nice and sharable on social media.

Software

Apple iPad 4 comes with iOS 6 out of the box and soon will be getting the iOS 7 which is iOS completely redesigned and with tons of new features. Siri is an integral part of iOS 6. Siri can book you movie tickets or tables. It can check weather, it can calculate, it can set you a reminder and it just can do so much more than I can tell you. When iOS 7 comes this fall of 2013 you will be pleased to have this even more.

Performance

Lag is not something you experience much in Apple products thanks to their dedicated processors and thoughtful OS. Apple iPad 4 comes with Apple’s A6X chip clocked at 1.5 GHz and is Dual Core. This has massive power to run the heaviest of apps without a problem and the 1GB of RAM supports it all the way through. It comes in a Wi-Fi model or the Wi-Fi + Cellular with each a 16GB/32GB/64GB of memory.

Final Thoughts

Apple iPad 4 is again one of its kind and the best 10 inch tablet in our eyes. There is nothing more we would want in a tablet. There are no useless features you find on other tablets, I mean if you have fingers why would you wave your hand to see the time or look for notifications. It is powerful, gaming is no where better than here with the fast processor and brilliant graphics with a great display size.
