Apple iPad 4 Review & Specs

Apple iPad 4 is a solid iOS device, including a huge 9.7 inches capacitive display, a powerful Dual-Core processing unit running at 1.4 gigahertz, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera.

Apple sells this device with a good performance Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1.4 gigahertz, bundled in the Apple A6X system chip and 1 GB of RAM memory. Graphic calculations generally uses a lot of processing power, so it also has a PowerVR SGX554 GPU clocking at 200 MHz to improve overall performance. This tablet counts with a great 32 GB internal storage memory and while it doesn’t have a slot for external memory cards, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without thinking about filling the device.

iPad 4 Review

This time, it seems like Apple didn’t care about the weight in this 23.35 ounces device. This device is available in 2 different colors, black and white. The iPad 4 is a very compact tablet, considering it features a 9.7 inches display and it’s just 9.5″ long and 7.31″ wide. The iPad 4 is just 0.37″ thick, making it one of the thinnest tablets nowadays.

This tablet has a very good 1536 x 2048 9.7″ screen, making everything look very good. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The iPad 4 counts with WiFi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a router), 4G LTE high performance data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a bit slower 4G technology or 3G fast connectivity, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a Micro SIM card for GSM services and it can work with both CDMA and GSM carriers.

This tablet has two cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. It also films videos in 1920×1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. In addition, the camera includes a few useful characteristics like auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.

This tablet also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
