The iPad 2, an amazing continuation from the fantastic iPad 1, but a step behind the iPad 3. But for the average person they all do basically the same thing, it's just performance may differ from one model to the next.
Anyway for anyone that doesn't know what an iPad is, it's a tablet computer. You can store/listen to music and watch videos, browse the Internet and download and use a unreal amount of applications for all uses that can be downloaded from the App Store.
As with a lot of Apple products they can seem a little pricey compared to other similar products on the market. But let me assure you they're not very similar, what may appear to look like an iPad type tablet, inside is struggling to even match half of the iPad specifications. The iPad 2 is a reliable and durable machine, that couldn't be anymore easier to use due to its large, clear touch screen. It has a powerful processor that means apps run smoothly and hardly ever crash, the iPad runs at speed!
I mostly use my iPad for browsing the Internet, I do a lot of online shopping on it, the large screen allows for easy viewing. Rather importantly as well is the fact the browsing software is completely safe from Internet viruses and malware, making it trouble free.
The battery life is surprisingly long, a full battery lasts for approximately 8-9 hours. Allowing you to watch and play for a substantial amount of time! One issue I have noticed is that it does seem to take longer to charge than other apple products for example my iPhone 5, but that could just be me.
Videos can be watched in basically HD quality and take barely any time to load. Sound playback is superb and the volume does reach a high level.
Overall I would recommend everyone to get an iPad if they can, it's makes jobs so much easier and quicker and will save you time in numerous ways!
I purchased this watch about a month ago now and to be totally honest I couldn't be anymore happy with it! Obviously it does what it's meant to do, which is tell the time. However it's feels very light and doesn't weigh your wrist down, it doesn't cause any discomfort to wear at all! Sometimes you even forgot its on your wrist, it can be worn with ease. The watch face is clear and easy to read also. The clasp on the strap is secure and doesn't accidentally pop open or anything, and the strap itself is easily adjustable to make it fit your wrist.
Aesthetically it's extremely pleasing, the watch is sleek and elegant, and can finish off any outfit you want to wear. It can be worn with shorts and a t-shirt to complement a casual style, but on the other hand can be worn with a shirt and trousers to add that crisp finish to any formal attire.
With my service provider having just offered me an unrefusable package for the new iPhone 5, I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it! When you first hold it, it's deceiving light for its size, but nevertheless feels strong and sturdy. It's sleek, refined and a pleasure to look at it, it just oozes elegance. However this elegance has to be protected, one thing I have discovered about iPhones over the years is that they're a magnets to scratches, so a case is definitely advisable. The larger screen allows for more icons to be present on the home screen, adding a fifth row of icons to the screen.
Anyway, aesthetics aside let's look at the phones technical performance. Through the removal of a layer of glass from the screen, Apple have made the phone feel sharper and more responsive to the touch. It's quick, and due to its new, more powerful processing unit, you can play games and load data almost lag free. There is a issue though, all this power comes at a cost, the battery life is significantly crippled! There are ways to reduce the drainage, for example lowering the brightness, but overall the battery life has been somewhat of a nuisance to me at times! I think Apples next invention should be a spare battery you could carry round, they'd sell out in seconds! However regardless of poor battery life this phone is fantastic, it does carry a hefty price tag that can put a hole in most people's bank balance, but in my opinion it's worth every penny.
