Apple iPad 3 Wi-Fi 16 GB
Advantages: Touch screen, Internet browsing
I currently own an ipad 3 16gb in white. I purchased mine from Amazon at the time as they seem to sell them at the lowest prices. The Ipad also came with a protective black case.
It is slim with a screen size of 9.7 inches. The screen takes up the majority of the front with a slim white border around the edge. The camera is situated at the top with the home screen button situated at the bottom. The case I received is plain black. It folds open to reveal the screen meaning that the Ipad never needs to be removed from the case.
Easy to use?
Yes. The layout and touch screen response is fantastic. In fact it is so easy to use, surprisingly my daughter at the age of 18 months was able scroll through and watch her favourite programs. It has a main screen which you can swipe across to access all your apps. You are also able to save your favourite apps at the bottom making access to them easier instead of trawling through screens searching for the app you want.
Whilst having this function on the Ipad is nice the quality of the photos and videos it provides are not great. The size of the Ipad can make it an inconvenience to carry around and take photos anyway. The photos can often come out blurry. It has a zoom function but this just appears to pixelate the photos even more.
The browser is just as good as using a desktop computer. I now find I use this for internet usage more than the computer as when operating off the wifi it loads pages within seconds. Some internet pages are not ipad friendly but you are able to zoom in and out making the pages easier to read. The keyboard is easy to use. The letters are big enough to tap and if a mistake is made sometimes it will pick it up and autocorrect to the right word. The only issue with the internet is not having the ability to download flashplayer. This can prevent certain videos from working.
There is an app store where you can search for all types. They can be broken down into Free Apps and Paid Apps. Our favourites are the games and television. We use is to catch up on all our favourite programs, watch films etc. It is also used for social networking and the facetime app which is exclusive to apple products is very simple to use and has a great picture.
With all this constantly being operated the battery life seems fantastic. We are able to have hours of fun. However when charging it can take nearly 6 hours to fully charge.
At a cost of nearly £400 I had been reluctant to make such a large purchase but I have not been let down. I am addicted to it and find myself constantly browsing the internet, watching television and playing games on it. Oh and now writing dooyoo reviews. It is great for people of all ages due to its simplicity and never ending amount of things to do!
Summary: A great device which is easy to use!
