    It's been a while

    The last Apple product I owned and purchased was an iPod Classic many years ago. From that time up until most recently, I have avoided Apple products. The iPhone? Not my liking. The iPad? Same. I had no interest in either of those, as I have used Android for years. But things have started to change in the tablet landscape on Android. It got.... worse. My last tablet is a Nexus 9, manufactured by HTC. It was a cool device at the time. But for some unknown reason, performance has started to slow down to a crawl. It got to the point where I couldn't stand it any longer. And the current market for Android tablet is rather dismal, especially since I do not want to compromise on anything. Samsung's offering on the high end was more expensive than this iPad model. And there's nothing else in the horizon for Android tablet. Coming from Android, it has taken me a few days to get used to how things work in iOS -- how to move icons, how to make app folders, etc. Using the iPad is different. But one of the biggest drawback to using iOS is being unable to arrange your icons the way you like it. I like clean interfaces, especially for the home screen. I have tons of anime/manga illustrations and they all look pretty. And it's a darn shame I can't give those images the kind of love that they can get on Android devices. Other than that, the user experience has been good, as I expected anyway. The hardware is beefy and so far, it has lasted on idle without a recharge far longer than I expected. There isn't much to criticize on for the quality of the product. But it's not all sunshine and roses. Initially, when setting up the iPad for the very first time, it prompts me to activate. As to why, I do not know. However, it failed to activate. Wireless network settings checked out OK. And when that failed, I had to yank out my guinea pig laptop and try to activate it thru iTunes. That also failed. Frustrated at how this could be happening, I Googled the issue. Turns out that Apple uses something so proprietary and so suspicious that my router's firewall blocked it. How? Why? I don't know. All I know is that Apple should not force me to work around this problem by placing the iPad in the DMZ temporarily just to activate it. Despite the initial setup hiccup, I'm not entirely convinced that Apple and iOS is the superior mobile device platform. I'm more comfortable with Android as a whole. But in the tablet space, Android is the biggest loser. As a device user, I use whatever works. So if you're in the market for a tablet, don't bother with an Android tablet unless it's made/designed by Google. And since there is none (in the $300-$400 price bracket), the only option is to go for the iPad. And unlike Samsung's Android tablet offerings, you'll get security and iOS updates faster and sooner (as opposed to waiting 3-6 months).

    A great iPad just got even better

    When Apple came out with the 2017 model iPad at a reasonable price, it was enough to convince me to buy it. I thought it was great, but I always wished it had support for the Apple Pencil. I bought a passive stylus that was actually quite good, but it wasn't the Pencil. So, when the 2018 model came out and included support for the Pencil, I was back again! I took the plunge and bought the new model, as well as the Pencil. In short? I love it! Should you go out and buy this new model and get the Pencil? That depends. I was interested in doing a lot more handwriting, and maybe a little drawing. For handwriting, you can get results almost as good as the Pencil by using a good passive stylus such as the Adonit Jot, together with the great app Goodnotes 4. If all you do is handwriting, I'm not sure it would be worth it to spend the money for the new iPad and Pencil. If, however, your iPad is a couple generations old or you want to do some serious digital drawing, then this is a great option at a much better price than you'd get buying the iPad Pro. The iPad 2018 sports the A10 processor, which is just a bit slower than the A10X in the Pro, but you really won't notice the difference. Also, don't be swayed by those who act like the non-laminated screen is a deal-breaker. It isn't. Yes, a laminated screen is definitely better, but it's not worth spending hundreds more. And unless you're a serious artist, you probably won't miss the real time color calibrations of the iPad Pro. If that matters to you, you probably need to buy the Pro anyway. I think Apple has given us a fantastic tablet at a price that makes sense. Those who criticize Apple's use of the older form factor seem to miss the fact that this is the very reason why it's available at such a good price. This strategy got me to buy, and if they keep this up, I plan to be an iPad customer for years to come!

    Good, but I returned it

    I gave my son my 2017 Fire HD 8 because his tablet was getting buggy. I also was lacking a laptop. I have loads of Apple products - iPhones, Apple TVs, and a Mac Mini - so I thought I should try an iPad to take the place of my Fire HD 8 and serve as my laptop. Not a great plan for me. I like a physical keyboard. Yes, I know I could have got a physical keyboard for the iPad. But I also prefer using a mouse to navigate rather than touching the screen while working. I thought of just using the iPad for watching shows in bed. But you can do that on other tablets which cost a lot less than the $299 or $329 you'll pay for this iPad. I got another 2017 Fire HD 8 for $60 on sale at Best Buy. For my laptop, I will use a Chromebook and utilize iCloud. The iPad 6th generation is fast and buttery smooth. It runs all things iOS 11 and will run 12 in the fall. But it lacks the anti-reflective coating found on its higher priced siblings. There is glare which bothered me. The iPad 6th generation is good, but it didn't work out as a combination tablet/laptop for me.

    Perfect for its purpose

    This iPad satisfies most of the users' needs. It is fast, smooth, easy to use, can be paired with Apple Pen and Apple Keyboard. The biggest difference to me with this iPad and the iPad Pro is their display. One of them renders faster, making the animations look smoother. However, if you were an owner of a previous iPads and you were satisfied with them, there is no need to make a leap to iPad Pro; iPad Pro should be bought by the ones who actually use it for art/work, or serious tasks. The rest who play Hay Day, FarmVille, etc., and use iPad for basic tasks like viewing simple documents,browsing and emails should get the new iPad. Price is a big difference here; you can buy two iPads or one iPad Pro. That does not necessarily mean iPad Pro is twice better than iPad; their purposes are different.

    2018 education revised iPad

    So this is the new 2018 9.7" iPad that was announced by Apple at the special Education event. In comparison to last year's 9.7" iPad, this iPad boasts a better processor and apple pencil capability. Some disadvantages you may or may not notice while using the product is the screen is not laminated so there's a layer of glass between the screen and the user's fingers or apple pencil, it's more profound if you have an iPad Pro beside but otherwise, you might not even notice it. The camera is of average quality, again not probably something you will notice unless you have another iPad or iPhone to compare to. One interesting note is the inclusion of the first generation TouchID sensor versus the ones you find in the latest iPad Pros and iPhones, my first instinct is that it works fine but maybe a little slower and not as consistent as the second generation but that's the tradeoff Apple made for the pricing.

    Best Purchase of the Year

    At first I was debating on buying this new iPad or the 10.5" iPad Pro. I watched a lot of reviews on YouTube, and read a lot of reviews on the internet. I reviewed each, and I compared them. I realized if I get an iPad Pro today it will be old and a new one will be out soon. This new iPad just came out, it has a great price tag, and the main reason why I wanted it is for the Apple Pencil functionality. I have had it for over a month now and it has been my favorite purchase so far for the year! I bring it every where I go, I use it for work and for personal. The apple pencil functionality is what makes me love this buy. So if you are buying this iPad i suggest to add the apple pencil with it. I would recommend it.

    The Power of a Notebook Computer

    Long story short, I ended up attending a very important event and wanted to take notes for it. I was always looking to take virtual notes like the surface pro but the lack of sync hassle free and iPhone to Mac laptop ecosystem just never worked out. Not to mention my surface would also crap out multiple times and was very irritating. Ended up pulling the trigger for $299 for this iPad and grabbed an Apple pencil while I was at it. Throw in a Folio case and my goodness! For $500, the most power packed super fast easy running, writing, journaling, syncing, device to have. Hands down. Took 50 pages+ of notes. No issues. Get the app "GoodNotes" for $8. You won't regret it one bit.

    iPad that supports Apple Pencil

    I already owned an iPad Pro 12.9 inch and it was just too big for me to enjoy and use while traveling back and forth to work and home. I like to be able to write on paper but I waste so much paper so I wanted a tablet that I could write on during the day with no lag time. I did a lot of research about this iPad before I bought it. And I have to say, I love having a normal sized iPad that I can use an Apple Pencil on and take notes and write without killing trees. I use the Noteability app and it’s amazing, worth the buy!
