Well it has been just over a week now that The New iPad (lets just call it iPad 3) and finally we have finished reviewing the “iPad 3″. You may be asking, Why has it taken you so long to do a review?, well the person who lent their device to us did not receive their device until last Monday and they only lent it to us for Thursday and Friday. Since then we have been busy working on some new ideas and we have just had the time to write our review.
So lets begin. Starting with the new Retina display. The new display is fantastic, we loaded up images, our site and video and had a good look and we could not see the pixels like you could on the previous versions of the device. We looked under a magnifying glass and you can make out some of the pixels. We tested it along side the two previous versions and we noticed a huge difference.
We only tested the wifi version so we cannot comment on the 4G capabilities, but we have heard that bills can be very high and not always available, we are hoping to test this once we can get hold of a 4G version.
We tested the built in cameras and the rear camera has a good quality but you do notice some noise and the front camera looks alright too.
The performance of the device is fantastic you cannot beat it. The new processor it amazing and really makes everything work fine. There is no lagging in intensive games no drop in performance after using it for a long time and having loads of apps open at the same time.
We really do like the device and we all really want one but it means saving money especially in these hard times. We were hoping to find someone who would let us take pictures or even video of us using their new “iPad 3″ which is a shame but we really did like using the device.
Most people have complained of the device being a little hotter. We noticed that but it is not that much warmer.
The only problem we had with the device was the dictation. It really struggled with out name Gromfrog Media, it typed it out as “dom fog media” which is not that good and it really struggled with one of our team (guess what he is Scottish). But other than that is is a a really good device.
We would give the “iPad 3″ a maximum 5 out of 5 for being the almost ultimate device.
