Apple iPad Air 2 Review

128 GB Wi-Fi Only     See other variants reviews Score: 79.3 / 100

Apple iPad Air 2 is a wonderful tablet launched back in 2014, having an extremely fast 1500 MHz 64 bit CPU, a big size 9.7-inches multi touch display, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet's advantages when we get into specific details.

Apple decided to sell this portable tablet with a Apple A8X chip, including an extremely fast 64-bit processor ticking at 1500 MHz and a huge 2 GB of RAM memory. An amazing feature of this tablet is the 128 GB big internal storage memory and while it doesn't count with a slot for an external memory card, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without worrying about filling the tablet.

Apple has made a very nice optimization job making this tablet weight only 15.41 ounces. This device is sold in two colors, gray and gold. About its construction materials, the iPad Air 2 is majorly made of Aluminium, giving this device a top level design and improved resistance. This tablet is incredibly thin and stilized, being just 0.24" thick. This tablet is a compact device, taking into account that it features a 9.7" screen and it's only 9.45" long and 6.67 inches wide.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. This tablet also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow-motion videos at 120 fps. The camera also features a lot of interesting characteristics like auto-focus, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, HDR mode, time lapse video and geo tagging.

Apple equipped this tablet with a interesting 9.7-inches screen, and a 2048 x 1536 resolution, which makes everything look very nice. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The iPad Air 2 counts with Wi-Fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed connection type and the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection and it can work with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This tablet also comes with a couple nice characteristics as Fingerprint Identification, Bluetooth and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet has a huge 7340 mAh non-replaceable battery that provides the iPad Air 2 an incredibly long battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to lose capacity, although with its 7340 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes an issue.

This tablet may not be such a good choice considering it is priced $ 271, while many similar portable tablets are quite cheaper than that. No matter if you want a work portable tablet, want a portable tablet to play games, love photography or are looking for a tablet mostly for internet broswing and social networks, you will probably love this device. Apple packs the Apple iPad Air 2 with USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
