Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch Review

Score: 9.44/10

Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch is a brilliantly designed tablet released in 2016, packed with a big size 9.7 inches display, an extremely powerful Dual-Core processor ticking at 2.26 gigahertz, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 megapixels front side camera.

Apple made this tablet in three different color options, gold, gray and pink. This device has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.24 inches. Though this tablet is only 9.4 inches long and 6.6" wide, it is able to fit a a 9.7 inches display. Talking about its construction materials, this tablet is majorly made with Aluminum . This tablet feels much lighter than what you would expect from a tablet this size.

Apple ships this tablet with a very fast 2260 MHz Dual-Core processing unit, packed into an Apple A9X APL1021 system chip with a large 2 GB of RAM memory. This tablet has a 256 GB huge internal memory and whereas it doesn't come with a slot for SD memory cards, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without worrying about running out of space at all.

This tablet includes a good looking 1536 x 2048 9.7" display, providing this tablet with a good image quality.

The iPad Pro 9.7-inch offers wi-fi connection (although it can't provide it to other devices around, as a mobile mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high performance internet connection and fast 3G internet connection, over HSPA and HSUPA technologies. This tablet works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This tablet has two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and a 5 megapixels front camera. Its back camera has an aperture of 2.2 so it can shoot beautiful photographs even in poor lighting situations. It is also able to shoot 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos up to 240 frames per second (8 times slower than reality). In addition, this tablet's camera also includes time lapse video.

This tablet also features a lot of useful features like Fingerprint Sensor, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (4.2 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch uses a 7306 mAh amazing Li - Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to consider is that the iPad Pro 9.7-inch's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, whereas with this big battery you will probably replace this tablet before it happens.

Apple is selling the iPad Pro 9.7-inch for $ 1029, which is not a really offer for a tablet device this level. This device is definitely a good choice for you it doesn't matter whether you want it majorly for social networks, are looking for a gamer portable tablet, want it for work or love photography.
