iPad Air review: a heavyweight contender for the best tablet ever made

gearburn.com
8 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The consensus is that this is the first, real successor since the last major iPad, the iPad 2. And that consensus is correct. The iPad Air not only feels different (lighter, faster, less calories) but it is different, from the way it has been designed, to the hardware lurking inside it, to iOS 7 itself. Everything Apple has been working on up until this point has culminated in the creation of the iPad Air.

Apple iPad Air 16GB WiFi Review

thinkdigit.com
18 December 2013
  • Summary: This is truly the new iPad we've wanted for a long time, at least as far as the design and form factor is concerned. With the iPad Mini, it was clear that Apple's focus would be on improving the portability and use comfort. The only drawback is that the thinner aluminum on the back does not feel as solid as the previous generations. But, without doubt, the best tablet in the market is now even better.
  • Pros: Weight shed makes a lot of difference, Very sophisticated design, Good battery life, Retina Display still rocks
  • Cons: Pricey proposition, for the higher storage versions, No TouchID

Review Apple iPad Air Tablet

Notebookcheck
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Love is in the air. The fifth generation of Apple's big seller is now available for purchase. Finally, the California-based company unveils a thinner device -- and at a height of a mere 7.5 mm (~0.3 inches), it has certainly earned the name "Air". The new A7 processor, familiar from the iPhone 5s, is at work in the newest iPad as well -- and it even clocks at a higher frequency than in its pocket-sized sibling. How did the iPad Air fare in our test laboratory?
  • Pros: Bright, high-contrast display, Excellent color reproduction, Good touchscreen, High-performance SoC, First-class manufacturing, Very long battery life, Fast browser performance, Fit for VoIP audio/video calls, Very good speakers..., The iPad Air is thin and lightweight. Even just its appearance makes it stand out from the crowd. Also, the Retina display is still an excellent piece of equipment. Its color accuracy is especially fantastic.
  • Cons: ...which are unfortunately poorly positioned, High surface temperatures under load, No current data transfer standards, No Flash support, The iPad's connectivity options are still somewhat meager. Apple should work on this in the future.

iPad Air review

19 November 2013
  • Summary: Let's murder a metaphor. In June of 2010, two months after Apple had shipped the first iPad, Steve Jobs sat on stage with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the D8 conference and compared tablets and PCs to cars and trucks. “PCs are going to be like trucks,” said Jobs. "They’re still going to be around. They’re still going to have a lot of value. But they’re going to be used by like one out of x people.
  • Pros: Amazingly thin and light, Terrific battery life, Excellent performance, Class-leading app selection
  • Cons: iOS 7 still glitchy in places, Gets expensive fast, Safari icon remains an abomination

Apple iPad Air: The TechSpot Review

TechSpot
19 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The display on the iPad Air is no longer the highest resolution panel found on a tablet but it continues to look as good as ever. I have zero complaints with the IPS display as colors and text were sharp and vivid while brightness remained a strong point. The 4:3 aspect ratio will still cause some to gripe compared to 16:9 offerings that are more suited to video and the outdoor performance isn’t anything to write home about.

iPad Air Overview

13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: After a lot of speculation and waiting Apple finally revealed a set of new iPads to the world a few weeks ago. While we still are waiting for the new iPad Mini we have gotten our hands on the new iPad Air and are putting it through the test to see if it is a worthy successor for the previous models.  The new iPad Air comes with a much sleeker body as well as upgraded innards making it one of the best ~10 inch tablets available right now.
  • Pros: Excellent screen, Much improved design, Fast, Excellent app-selection, Perfect for reading comics and magainzes
  • Cons: iOS needs a bit more innovation, No fingerprint sensor

Apple iPad Air Review

11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: It has arrived, Apple's fifth-generation iPad Air has not only been given a new light-sounding name but also an agile redesign that replaces the original bulky picture frame-like bezel design we are all familiar with ever since the inception of the first iPad, and those palm-digging tapered edges for a more utilitarian design.

Apple iPad Air review: the same as before, only better

pocketnow.com
10 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Calling this device lighter, thinner, and more powerful may sound like some buzzwordy, marketing nonsense. We thought so ourselves at first. But after using it for a week and comparing it to last year’s iPad 3, we’re convinced this was exactly what the aging iPad lineup needed more than anything.
  • Pros: Gorgeous, crisp display,  Very lightweight and portable,  Impressive performance with no notable issues,  Long battery life,  An endless amount of available content to consume
  • Cons: The iPad Air was released on November 1 with a base price of $499 plus tax for the 16GB model. Each higher-capacity model increases in price by $100, meaning the 32, 64, and 128GB will set you back $599, $699, and $799, respectively.
