I resisted iPads for so long but now cannot live without it.,
This review is from: Apple IPAD AIR WI-FI 16GB 16 GB 1024 MB 9.7 -inch Retina display (Personal Computers)
I am an Apple sceptic, I used to use my iPhone 4 religiously but had been tempted away by the newer Android powered devices. I had however always liked the idea of an iPad and with the redesign of the iPad air decided to go for it and buy one, specifically the 64gb black version.
Firstly, the price, yes, it's eye watering. Once the device was bought home however any sense of buyers remorse disappeared. It booted up quickly, synchronised with my computer, downloaded all of my music onto itself within a few hours and loaded many of the apps I used to love.
Build quality is superb, it feels like a stunning piece of engineering and really is comfortable to use for hours on end. Buying a case was a must though as any thoughts of scratching it or risking damage were frankly horrifying!
The quality of the retina display is well commented and I can only confirm that it's superb. Photographs look vivid and crisp, videos look outstanding and watching live TV (via Sky and BT Sport) is a joy.
I am sure I am only scratching the surface of the device's capability but I already love it. I cannot stop using it, plus there is no need to regret not purchasing the 4G version as it can use my work phone as a WiFi hotspot, it will work anywhere!
I know that there are equally capable android tablets out there but for the full experience of use I cannot recommend the iPad Air enough.
