Apple iPad Air 2 Review

128 GB Wi-Fi Only     See other variants reviews Score: 8.36/10

Apple iPad Air 2 is a very high-end iOS tablet launched some years ago, coming with a big size 9.7" multi touch screen, a powerful 1.5 GHz 64 bit CPU, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera.

Apple decided to build this device with a Apple A8X system chip, including a good performance 64-bits processor clocking at 1500 megahertz and a large 2 GB of RAM memory. This device has a 128 GB impressive internal memory and whereas it doesn't count with a slot for external memory cards, it is still enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about how much memory is left.

Apple made a really good design job making this tablet weight only 15.41 ounces. About its materials, this tablet is mainly created with Aluminium, giving this tablet a quality design and better resistance. This device is sold in 2 different color options, gray and gold. Being just 0.24" thick,this tablet is incredibly thin and good-looking. While this tablet is just 9.45" long and 6.67" wide, it manages to hold a 9.7" screen.

Apple designed the Apple iPad Air 2 with a good looking 9.7 inches display, and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 , providing this tablet with a good image quality. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Apple iPad Air 2 has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera. The iPad Air 2 also captures 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 120 frames per second (4 times slower than normal videos). In addition, the camera has a large number of great characteristics: auto-focus, fast burst mode, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

The iPad Air 2 offers wifi capability (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high performance connectivity or fast 3G data connection, over 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 works with both GSM and CDMA.

This tablet counts with a 7340 mAh huge non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the iPad Air 2 with an incredible battery duration. An issue to consider is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts losing capacity, although with its 7340 mAh you will probably discard this device before it becomes an issue.

This tablet also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth tablets, computers and accessories), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Apple iPad Air 2 is being sold for just 485 dollars, incredibly cheap comparing with other similar tablets. The Apple iPad Air 2 is probably a great option if you will use it as a gaming tablet, want a work tablet, will use it mainly for social networks or you love taking photographs. The iPad Air 2 is packed with USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
