I am writing this review after using this iPad for 2 years and I am glad I made this purchase.
I was used to working on my laptop and didn't feel the necessity to have a tab with me. With a little motivation, I however decided to go for it.
Pros: 1. Extremely light weight and handy 2. Screen size is adequate and screen is awesome 3. This one I never anticipated - Ebooks... And I am in love with kindle.. never knew this feature would be so helpful. I can carry my entire library anywhere I go. 4. Whole day battery backup. If you use this wisely, it can give you battery backup of whole day. 5. Speed and Processor - in past 2 years, I never, NOT ONCE had any issues with the device hanging or shutting down or screen freezing. I had experienced this in my laptop, android phone but never in this device. (Which also motivated me to buy iPhone)
Cons There are not many cons with this device, but still I am putting down a few just to give an honest feedback.
1. It is compulsory to buy a screen guard and cover with this device. Why can't apple take care of it in the design itself. 2. The speaker is at the bottom, so while using it I portrait mode without headphones on, the voice from video / FaceTime gets blocked. I wish this didn't happen. 3. There should have been a silent button in this device, just like iPhone and other ipad models. 4. File Management is still an issue with this device despite the update in iOS 11. Still there is no inbuilt available to put my PDF, word etc files to access or use them. I still have to either put in cloud or respective apps.
Extremely happy with my purchase, if you already have an iMac then you can't go wrong with this product as transferring any sort of data is a breeze. The display is brilliant and 5 min of charge can last a half hour. Ideal companion for my iMac and I would recommend Apple Music to anyone to use with this iPad, the recommended playlists are awesome !!!
There is nothing to complain about the product. price could be lower but we all know apple products are expensive. Definitely there is something in Apple products. Once you use it, you will not switch it to Android or other OS.
