Apple iPad Air 2 Review

64 GB Wi-Fi Only     See other variants reviews Score: 9.12/10

Apple iPad Air 2 is a very powerful portable tablet launched in October 2014, counting with a really big 9.7-inches multi-touch screen, an exceptional 1.5 GHz 64 bit processor, and two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera.

About its design materials, this tablet is created with Aluminium, giving this tablet a quality finish. Apple made the iPad Air 2available only in gray and gold. The iPad Air 2 is extremely thin and stilized, being just 0.24 inches thick. The iPad Air 2 is only 9.45" long, but it still manages to hold a 9.7" display. Apple did a great design job making the Apple iPad Air 2 weight only 15.41 ounces.

Apple designed this tablet with a very good 9.7" screen, and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 , which makes it hard to see the pixels composing the screen. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This tablet comes with a Apple A8X system chip, backed up by a very fast 1.5 GHz 64 bits CPU and a great 2 GB of RAM memory. This device counts with a big 64 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't include a slot for an SD memory card, it it is more than enough to store lots of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about filling the tablet.

This device includes Wi-Fi capability (which can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), LTE 4G fast connectivity and the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can connect using both GSM and CDMA.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It also shoots videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 120 fps (4 times slower than reality). This camera also includes a large number of great characteristics: fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, geo tagging and time lapse video.

The iPad Air 2 also comes with a couple nice features such as Fingerprint Reader, Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet has a big 7340 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Apple iPad Air 2 with an amazing battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to get older, whereas with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new tablet before it happens.

Apple is offering the iPad Air 2 for $ 283, which is rather expensive for a tablet this level. If you need a work tablet, you love taking photos, are looking for a gaming device or will use it as a social tablet, this tablet device is definitely a good choice . This device is packed with Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
