The New iPad Review

No surprising appearance

There are not any new things on the appearance of the new iPad. This may be a continuation of unity of the user experience. The new iPad is similar to iPad 2 from the appearance and feel of handling. The new iPad is a little heavier than the iPad 2, by almost 50g. Although it does not accord with Apple's consistent design principles, but considering the upgrade hardware, are in reason.

An integrity upgrade around the Retina screen

Performance of screen is always one of the parts Apple is proud of. The introduction of Retina really gives many people the reason to buy the new iPad. The media in the trial, used the "Stunning (excellent)!" to describe the 2048 x 1536 resolution, pixel density of 264 ppi screen.

More powerful graphics processing ability with upgraded hardware

Another huge upgrade is iPad's processor - A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives, In order to deal with the extra computational cost needed by the screen resolution increases. From the common operations, media playing, 3D games playing, the new iPad keeps the old smooth feeling. Furthermore, the performance of iPhoto and iMovie applications in the new iPad is also impressive. Even when dealing with photos or videos in high resolution, iPad's faster processing power reflects the results of the hardware update.

More excellent imaging effect and the HD video capability

The iPad rear Camera follows the Camera module on iPhone4S (using the name used on the Macbook - iSight, and the front camera is still Facetime Camera). The new iPad is packed with 5-megapixel camera. According to the existing iPhone 4S performance, the new iPad shooting results should not be disappointed. Moreover, in this iOS 5.1 update, iPad's camera app is also designed again. The shutter button changes the position, so that users can more conveniently take pictures with the new iPad.

4G LTE network support for dealing with big flow data transmission

The increase of screen resolution directly lead to the data's increase. This requires the device to have more powerful data transmission ability. Apart from the bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE network also enables iPad's data communication to become more powerful.

The regret: No Siri

No Siri - this may be the biggest dark horse. Since Siri is introduced to iPhone 4S, people all think that Siri will be transplanted to the new iPad. However, Apple only adds the Voice Dictation to the new iPad this time. And what is worth mentioning, through the field trial, the new function - Voice Dictation, requires the network for running normally, which makes us more puzzling why Siri hasn't appear in the new iPad.
