Comparisson review

Nokia Lumia 2520 has a general score of 7.94, which is a little bit better than the iPad Air's global score of 7.84. Even being the best tablet in this review, Nokia Lumia 2520 is a way heavier and thicker tablet than iPad Air. Nokia Lumia 2520 comes with Windows RT 8.1 OS, while iPad Air comes with iOS 8.x OS.

The Apple iPad Air features just a bit better hardware performance than Nokia Lumia 2520, because although it has an inferior number of cores and a smaller amount of RAM memory, it also counts with a 64-bits processor and a faster 600 MHz graphics processor. Lumia 2520 has a little more vivid display than iPad Air, because although it has a just a little less pixels per inch in the screen and a quite lower 1080 x 1920 resolution, it also counts with a little bit bigger screen.

The iPad Air features a much greater storage capacity to install applications and games or saving photos and videos than Nokia Lumia 2520, because although it has no SD card slot, it also counts with 128 GB internal storage. The Lumia 2520 features a camera that is very similar to the camera in iPad Air, and although the Lumia 2520 has a much bigger aperture to capture better low-light photography and a much more mega pixels back camera, they both have the same 1920x1080 video quality and the same 30 frames per second video frame rate.

IPad Air features just a bit longer battery lifetime than Lumia 2520, because it has 8820mAh of battery capacity instead of 8000mAh.

Nokia Lumia 2520 is not only the best devices between the ones we are comparing, but it's also a lot cheaper, which makes it a no doubt choice.
