Retina Display screen is impressive at first sight, but graphic processing also surprises the most demanding users
The third generation of the iPad, with the long-awaited screen Retina Display, came to Brazil . Although Apple does not have changed the design and the new iPad have stayed until he got a little rounder, the left screen and processing all jaw dropped again.
He still doesn’t have-and probably never-some items much applications, already present in Android tablets. But the new iPad (which is not called iPad 3) remains the King of the portable.
- Bright Screen, well defined;
• 1080 p video recording with stabilization;
• Powerful Processing;
• Large base of applications available;
• Already have 4 g support (but still compatible with 3 g).
- No native HDMI connection;
• No microSD card;
• Can heat up a lot;
• No loud stereo speakers;
• More heavy and thick that the previous model.
The new iPad is not very different from the previous model, but the new generation of iPad is imperceptibly greater than the previous one. In addition to weight, which went from 607 to 662 grams, the thickness of the tablet went from 88 to 94 mm. You can’t feel it easily, but it is interesting to note that Apple gave up “smaller than the previous” to fit its components safely. This does not prevent, however, that the new iPad worry a lot more than the iPad 2.
Also you can’t speak of design without citing the cover especially designed for the iPad. The Smart Cover does not protect the back of the tablet, but if turn on-almost magic – to it through magnets, calling the iPad automatically when it is opened. Folds also allow it to be placed in two angles: standing, as a, or lying down, as portarretratos on a typewriter.
The highlight of the new iPad is on the screen. Retina Display technology, which brings greater definition and shine, now in the tablet. And is impressive: became impossible to see the pixels of the screen without the help of a magnifying glass and the colors and brightness gives an “up” in any photo, video or application. The higher definition let well-designed applications look more realistic and more beautiful. It’s as if they had “passed a Photoshop” at all.
Capacitive, multitouch, she is backlit by LEDs and features IPS technology-better to see in more acute angles. Are 9.7 inches with 16 million colors and 2,048 by 1,536 resolution huge pixels, with 264 pixels per inch (DPI). Apple claims that the screen has fingerprint-resistant coating and greasiness, but doesn’t work in practice. The screen is also scratch resistant but, when in doubt, it is better to buy a film.
Hardware and processing
Processing, in General, improved. Although use the same CPU as the iPad 2 – Apple processor 1 GHz with two cores A5X-, now it comes with double the RAM, 1 GB. But the graphics processing unit (GPU) makes a difference, running in four cores (quad-core).
In tests conducted with benchmark applications (Gensystek, LinpackBenchmark, PawaMark) the new iPad have done well. In relation to the first model of the iPad he give a bath, especially if it concerns the processing of games, shown by the PawaMark application. Infinity Blade, role playing game using the Unreal engine to run, had excellent performance.
Are present all sensors: compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and ambient light. Under connections, he is virtually complete, but keep an eye on the model. It has WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 – no data transmission – 4 g (in which the 3 g works perfectly) and GPS with A-GPS (with WiFi only models do not have GPS). Depending on the operator, now you can also use the Wi-Fi Hotspot.
Operating system and usability
For those who already know you, I don’t need to explain. For those who never had contact, I say: move this system is simple. The transitions are smooth, the look is beautiful and you can find everything you need with just a few clicks. The settings of each application are in the General preferences of the appliance, all together.
The only thing that is really need are widgets on the home, like Android does. They make easier the access to certain information. The Flash went out once again, but everything indicates that it will not last long. With iOS 5 there is also a system of notifications, among other tasks. Too bad the Siri – operating system for voice-is not present.
In the physical aspect, I can say that it could be better. The metal rear needs a cover, as well as slip with ease from the hands, also scratches too. The screen with bright glass may bother you in the daylight, and the fingerprints come up with ease. Your weight is not the best to use in bed. Heavier than many books, it can become a nuisance. The same goes for watching videos.
The most interesting are those using the cameras of the tablet. We have FaceTime, a video chat that works great-just who owns Mac or other Apple devices. Could not miss also the Photobooth, program known among Mac users. It allows you to take pictures with cute or funny effects. You can play for more than 1 hour with your friends.
And finally, the iMovie. It doesn’t come with the iPad, but is an essential app. With it you can shoot with the iPad and quickly already go editing everything very simply. Want to add one more scene? Direct film in the program and enter in the film. With some effects available, the end result is very interesting.
Some people miss a few apps that the old iPad had not: weather, stock exchange, clock, calculator, voice memos. Are really important, but Apple must have known that there are third-party applications a lot better than the ones offered.
You can’t forget the super base of applications that Apple has: currently, there are almost 600,000 (part of them was originally developed for the iPhone, but is compatible with the iPad). The disadvantage in relation to the Android store is that many things are paid, and if you have ever had an Apple tablet and want to switch to Google’s system, will stay with the heart hurt in losing all the money you’ve spent on apps in the App Store.
We had a major upgrade. The iPad 2 was only 0.7 megapixels on the camera back and the new comes with 5 megapixels. The front camera is still VGA, but works perfectly for the Photobooth and to chat via video. The focus is automatic, and there are also image stabilization. If you prefer, choose the focus with the touch.
Now the iPad also writes in Full HD (1080 p) with up to 30 frames per second, audio and video stabilization. None of the two functions overrides a compact camera – in fact, it’s not very comfortable filming or photographing with the tablet – but fared well in low light and very well in good light conditions.
Music and media
As well as the screen already shows, the iPad is perfect for media. Your external speaker is not great, since it’s not stereo, but you can watch movies without problems. And nothing prevents you from buying a pair of quality speakers to view your videos. It doesn’t come with headphones, so if you want to listen to music discreetly, will need to put your hand in my Pocket (again).
If you are in the House of a friend and want to show movies from the trip, have Apple’s digital AV adapter (sold separately) and plug the iPad on TV with high definition up to 1080 p. It plays videos and audio in any format, simply have the correct application for this. And for those who have the Apple TV, it does mirror up to 1080 p.
He’s not very comfortable to just listen to music – a device smaller is better-but for a follow-up while you perform other tasks (like writing or play) serves well, and has good internal sound. If you are a fan of buying songs, has access to the iTunes store, which also serves to rent movies.
Battery and storage
Apple promises 10 hours of use with Wi-Fi, videos or music and 9 hours with the use of the internet by 3 g/4 g network. During testing, we reached 8 hours using 3 g and 9 hours on Wi-Fi, but it obviously can vary according to the websites you visit, applications that uses, among others. The average is good, although the ideal would be to rely on a battery lasting 12 hours.
The store hasn’t changed at all. Apple still does not-and nor should it do that any day – microSD card input (although there is a SD adapter), but on the other hand offers good internal storage. Our test model has a respectable 64 GB space, but there are also versions with 32 GB and 16 GB. The 16 GB requires attention to what you put on your tablet: movies or magazines can end quickly with the space.
What’s in the box
If it’s Apple, it’s minimal. No headphones or use manuals. Inside the iPad box succinct you find the tablet, the connector cable, power adapter and a small basic documentation, plus two adesivinhos of Apple.
Who it’s for
Those looking for the best tablet on the market, there’s no way, just choosing the iPad. Who goes near it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 , the option for those who prefer Android. But if you’re looking for the best, the iPad is still dominating in questions of quality, design, processing, screen, and other applications.
And if you’re a fan of Apple, can perform the previous model your iPad with security to be buying a device best. The improved screen and processing have made a difference, and the 2012 version of the Apple tablet is almost everything you always wanted to (always missing something).
