Are the new features of the new iPad worth it?

top 5 features of the new iPad

The third generation of Apple’s tablet, the iPad 3, the new iPad, the new iPad 3, or however you want to call it, was released on 7th March and entered the UK market nine days later. Probably one of the most awaited gadgets this year, however it seems that some of the owners were a bit disappointed as they expected far more from the latest model.

If you are one of those users who keep asking the same question whether the new features of the iPad 3 are worth it, we have composed a list of 5 major improvements so you can decide.

Top 5 improvements of the new iPad

1. Display

The iPad 3’s Retina Display is a massive improvement and it’s definitely better than his older brother’s one. The display has astonishing 2,048 x 1,536 pixels resolution which comes to a density of 264 pixel per inch. No doubt that your photos, videos and games will be brighter, sharper and as Apple says, more lifelike.

2. Design

The design hasn’t changed much and it looks very similar to his previous version. However, if you hold it in your hand you can feel the difference as it’s slightly thicker and about 60g heavier than his brother iPad 2.

3. Camera

Apple has played a lot with the camera here and it’s fair to say that moving from 0.7 – megapixel to 5-megapixel is a huge and impressive jump. You are definitely ‘good to go’ and can take quick and good quality photos, shoot HD videos or make Skype HD FaceTime calls using the front camera.

4. Network

4G speed would be great advantage however this network still isn’t available in the UK, and, even if it’s launched, UK owners would not be able to use this network. The simple reason is that the American 4G LTE version runs on the 700 – 2100MHz spectrum, while the UK’s 4G LTE network would operate on the 800 – 2600MHz.

5. Processor

iPad 3 has a dual-core A5X processor which adds more power to graphics so you can enjoy better visual quality when playing games. It’s also worth mentioning that battery life remains the same and you will get up to 10 hours of power.

It’s fair to say that the new iPad  is a great upgrade and has a lot to offer however if you are an owner of the older version you are not missing a lot and it might be worth waiting for the next version.
