Excellent device.... Shame about the screen.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple IPAD AIR WI-FI 16GB 16 GB 1024 MB 9.7 -inch Retina display (Personal Computers)
Many people(elsewhere) are complaining about the ipad airs screen quality, which displays a yellowish(dirty) tint down the left side of the screen. This is a disappointing lack of quality control for a premium product. I have tried two ipad airs and both have suffered from this fault. Beware of this when purchasing. The device itself is indeed very good but the screen issue brings the score way down.

Also its slightly thinner than pref it appears making it slightly more fragile, different to touch & slightly more noisy when tapping.. A minor inconvenience, not to deter from purchase.

Though in this respect IMO the screen quality feels like cheap plastic and understand this is not the case (see link)

No issue here with tint or screen thickness

You must be okay with cheap plastic feel of screen, when I'm paying £400 I expect a lot better and this was the main reason I returned it for a refund.

What did you buy to replace this product? I'm eager to see which product had better build quality than an apple iPad?

I replaced mine with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 , superb build quality, excellent user functionality, quality responsive screen, used it now for 2 months, best tablet I've used by some distance'

Wow, I find that difficult to believe - we have both and the Samsung gets left in the cupboard whilst we fight over use of the i-pad3. Our next buy, for sure will be an i-pad , but just not yet sure which model.
