Apple New iPad 3 Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: The new iPad is without doubt the best tablet Apple has produced. The screen is fantastic and far better than any screen currently being used on a tablet. Apple’s iOS operating system is incredibly easy to use, but at this point it feels that it's lagging behind rivals, especially with Windows 8 on the horizon. It's not about usability - the new iPad is incredibly user friendly. There are however value adds that should be there that aren't.
Pros: Best screen on a tablet, Gorgeous design, Fantastic camera
Cons: 4G won't work in the UK, 16GB storage will fill up very quickly
Excerpt: The new iPad (aka iPad 3) comes with an improved 9.7-inch 2048x1536 pixels Retina display, 5-megapixel iSight camera on the back, front-facing camera for video calls, and 16, 32 or 64 GB of built-in storage. Additionally, you will be able to choose between Wi-Fi only model, 3G (CDMA or GSM-based) and 4G (LTE) one.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: If you are an iPad 'one' user, or a user of any other tablet available in the market, then you should consider the upgrade to the New iPad. If you are an iPad 2 user however, we suggest you skip this iteration and wait for the fourth generation iPad as that will be a better value for money upgrade for you.
Conclusion: Ratings breakdown. I deducted 2 points from the Design since this is an iPad 2 with increased weight and thickness. The Hardware is a 10/10 because of the display and actual real world performance. The camera was deducted a point because it’s on par with the iPhone 4, not 4S. The Battery was deducted a point because it did not beat the iPad 2. Value is a solid 10 because of the components, the number of dedicated iPad apps, and Apple products high resale value.
Excerpt: As was widely anticipated, Apple unveiled the third-generation iPad last March 7 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Analysts speculated that we would see the iPad 3 or perhaps the iPad HD but Cupertino defied all in attendance by simply calling it "the new iPad.
Excerpt: If the tablet market of 2012 were a monarchy, then the iPad 3 Wi-Fi would be the one you'd find sitting comfortably atop the throne. The kingdom's crown jewel? You guessed it: a sweet, sweet apple with a little bite in it. With the iPad 3, Apple has taken everything good about the iPad 2 and injected improvements all around. Design-wise, its undeniably as beautiful as any contraption made of glass, metal, and plastic can be.
