Comparisson review

The Apple iPad Air 2 is a bit better than the Lumia 2520, with an 8.01 score against 7.94. The Apple iPad Air 2 is a newer tablet, and it's also incredibly lighter and thinner than the Lumia 2520. The Apple iPad Air 2 works with iOS 8.x operating system, and Lumia 2520 comes with Windows RT 8.1 operating system.

Lumia 2520 features a little bit better looking display than iPad Air 2, because although it has a little bit less pixels per inch in the display and a little lower 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, it also counts with a little bit bigger screen. Nokia Lumia 2520 counts with a bit more powerful processing unit than Apple iPad Air 2, because although it has a 32-bits processor instead of 64-bits, and they both have 2 GB of RAM, the Nokia Lumia 2520 also counts with a larger number of cores and an additional graphics processor.

The Lumia 2520 has a much better memory capacity for apps and games than iPad Air 2, because it has a slot for an SD memory card that allows a maximum of 32 GB and 32 GB internal memory capacity. IPad Air 2 features a much better camera than Lumia 2520, because although it has a way tinier diafragm aperture which is not nice for capturing photos or video in poorly lited situations, and they both have the same 1920x1080 video resolution and the same video frame rate, the iPad Air 2 also counts with a camera in the back with a higher 8 megapixels resolution.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 counts with a bit better battery lifetime than Apple iPad Air 2, because it has a 9 percent greater battery capacity.

Although Apple iPad Air 2 is a better device, it costs a lot more money than Nokia Lumia 2520, and it doesn't have such a good relation between it's price and quality as the Nokia Lumia 2520. So if you need that extra features, you can buy the Apple iPad Air 2, but if you don't you can save some dollars and buy the Nokia Lumia 2520, letting go some specs and features.
