"It gives me exactly what I need in a Tablet."4.5 starson by keithianw
Pros: Very Light for its size and power, form factor, speed, apple ecosystem, screen, available apps,battery life, there is just nothing missing for me personally that makes me want to look elsewhere.
Cons: -I still feel like edges could be even flatter where the glass meets the side so that there would be zero ridge. Same issue on the phone.
-I still wish it could be even lighter which I'm sure they will be.
-I want even better battery life :-).
Summary: -Finally light enough so I don't feel I need a Mini with a smaller screen. When traveling and watching movies, Mini felt too small and some text on internet and apps felt way too small.
-Great screen quality. I don't care if there are other tablets with screens with higher pixel density. To the naked eye, this is the perfect screen for reading and watching videos.
-Form factor is perfect for holding and doing all the things I normally want a tablet for (internet browsing, games, movies, news apps, apps in general across multiple categories, Facetime with family across the country, etc).
-Battery Life is excellent, but I still wish it was even better.
-I could care less about the fingerprint scan. I mean it takes one sec to put in a 4 digit pass code and when I'm at home I really don't need that at all.
-I've had a few apps crash, but that is iOS7 which continues to improve. It doesn't happen too often.
-To sum it up, it just feels like a premium device where you are not sacrificing anything and it does everything I want it to do that I wouldn't do on my heavy gaming laptop. Highly recommend if you are coming from an Ipad 2 or a Mini and miss a bigger screen...or if you are coming from an Ipad 3 or Ipad 4 and dont want a smaller screen but beg for something lighter.
