This year before the Apple company there was a special task. It was necessary for it to make something more perfect, than iPad 2 though that owing to the popularity and languid development Android-planshetnikov in general and did not need updating. Therefore kupertinovets decided to concentrate on the main problem in 2nd "tablet". And, we will tell frankly, the spent efforts did not pass in vain. New iPad became even more ideal, having overtaken own next competitors on all lines.
The box of new iPad differs nothing from packing of a last year’s planshetnik. Qualitative white cardboard, small quantity of waste paper, cable, charger and two small apples stickers. The main difference from all other generations — a picture of iPad, on спрингборде which it is established new «обоина» blue color.
Frightened of responses of the first buyers of iPad 3, I got it from a box and began to twist it in hands. I tried to feel the grown weight and thickness, but, fortunately, neither that, nor another could not behold. Having found the button of inclusion/blocking of Home, I pressed it and saw it — the new screen with permission 2048 on 1536 pixels!
Eventually after the iPhone 4/4S screen it is possible to look at the iPad screen with the same pleasure! Icons of standard applications and all interface of the iOS operating system simply revives in the face of. I for a long time peered at Facetime and Real Racing 2 HD icons, but I did not manage to make out though some hint on pixel. The text in already updated for the Retina-screen of new iPad chitalka looks simply smartly, conceding to the traditional periodical press only the worst behavior under direct beams of the sun.
As I tried, in speed of work of system I did not see a gain. Started various applications, HD videos on Youtube, played GTA III and Real Racing 2 HD, but did not see any features of the refreshed chip of Apple A5X with 4-nuclear GPU which is used in new iPad. Let’s wait specialized toys from developers from Epic Games, and then we will already draw any conclusions.
The iPad chamber stopped to be pozorishchy got a 5-megapixel sensor with the whole bouquet of new functions (an auto focus, focus on тапу, definition of persons, video shooting in a format 1080p with 30 frames per second). It is heavy to imagine the person whom the new planshetnik as the basic of the photo tool will use, but I nevertheless decided to take a picture on the street. Quality of the picture became very better, though noise were not gone anywhere.

After 15-minute testing of the iPad chamber of the third generation I eventually for myself thought that its absence on a back cover of a planshetnik at all would not upset me. It would be much more interesting to receive the improved face-to-face chamber for Facetime/Skype-conversations. The existing VGA parody, to chagrin, spoils all reminiscence from the Retina-screen of high resolution.
As a result, all innovations of the third iPad can be divided into two categories — what will be useful to the Russian-speaking person living on this party of the ocean, and what will be only pleasant, but a useless additive. The Retina-display, the improved chamber concern the first пт, possibilities of the 4-nuclear graphic chip and Blyutuz of version 4.0 in the long term. To the second — support of LTE networks, voice typing a la Siri (it is natural, without Russian support) and the increased capacity of the accumulator (holds 9-10 hours). New iPad became better, quicker and is a little most functional than last generations and already deserved to get rid in the name of figures and letters and to become an imenovaniye nominal. iPad — the best device in the class, and new iPad to that only the next proof.
> Arthur Malosiyev’s outlook
A year ago I did not begin to take myself iPad 2, being happy first generation of a planshetnik. But it was at present established it is time to be updated, because resources of "first" began not to suffice certainly. In February to me beaten bu-shny iPad 2 got to hands, but with the whole screen, and month I enjoyed its society. When the box with iPad 3 appeared at my place, at first I rushed a testitis …
Speed of opening of games and sites
I tested speeds of work of iPad 2 and 3 on the games Mass Effect Infiltrator and Sky Gamblers. Here fighting draw. Differences are in respect of graphics, about it read below.
At work on the Internet of iPad 2 is slightly weaker than new model, but the difference is so small that it can be not considered. For fans of figures I can provide data of 2 tests which we measured yesterday all edition.
– Air (i7) – 586
– iPad 3-100
– iPad 2-98
– iPhone 4S – 76
– Galaxy Note – 55
– iPhone 3GS – 38
– iPhone 2G – 8
– Air (i7) – 246
– iPad 3-1818
– iPad 2-1772
– iPhone 4S – 2150
– Galaxy Note Samsung – 2925
– iPhone 4-3410
– iPhone 3GS – 5113
Samsung of Galaxy Note got here not casually, it was offered by Roma Yuryev to show Android OS possibilities. Numbers which are brought in the father-in-law above, are received on a "naked" insertion Nouta. But after Rum перепрошил the phone for a kastomny image of CheckROM NoteHD V5 and Franko kernel #7, finally that speed Nouta increased in 1.8 times and it outstripped in the iPad 3 tests. Here that the manual kastomizatsiya of the Android means.
As well as Kostya Gribanov, I did not see distinction in speed.
To compare quality of a photo of iPad 3 to iPad 2 there is no sense therefore the "third" I ran in the chamber under a sensitive eye of iPhone 4S. In comparison with iPhone 4S pictures on iPad 3 turn out less saturated. Same optics, and here sensors different. On iPad 3 costs cheaper.
I poorly represent the people running down t
he street, and photographing on iPad, but at the expense of weight of a planshetnik in pictures there will be less razmytost, than on the same iPhone the Sensor of iPad 3 is comparable with iPhone 4 – there and there information Omnivision OV5650 with a working range of temperatures from-30 to 70 ° processes C and the size of an active cell 1.75 microns (against 1.4 microns at iPhone 4S).
Further, video. It acts in film in 1080p at 30 frames per second. An example of record look below.
Work of system of stabilization leaves much to be desired. Probably, because it program, instead of optical. Where to find the Off trigger that it completely to disconnect?
The face-to-face chamber remained without configurations.
If can find approximately, where iPad 2, and where iPad 3, you Robin Hood.
The most part of people even from a half a meter cannot precisely tell, what model of a planshetnik at you in hands. The width and height of iPad 3 remained to the same – 185.7 x 241.2 mm, and the thickness increased on only 6 10th mm – with 8.8 to 9.4 mm.
iPad 2 from above, iPad 3 from below
In similar configurations of iPad 3 iPad 2 on 50 гр because of the battery is heavier.
The capacity of the iPad 3 battery increased actually in 1.7 times (6930> 11560 mAh) as the graphic chip and the monstruozny screen demand more resources. And as the result, is charged a planshetnik about-oochen копотливо: only 20 % for an hour in a rest mode.
It is curious that in the car at the started navigator and activated GPS iPad 3 charging from the lighter can be stretched for some days.
ОООООО! In THE NEW IPAD Vtyuritsya WITHOUT MEMORY ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF the Monitor is POSSIBLE!
When you transfer a look from iPad 2 on iPad 3, arises deja vu, as in case of comparison of the characteristic of screens on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Having fixed a view of iPad 3, any more on anything another more will not want to look.
Was: 1024 x 768 pixels
Became: 2048 x 1536 pixels
In other words the density of points increased in 4 (four!) time at the same diagonal in 9.7 inches. Because of it on the iPad screen the 3rd pixels at all are not felt. Let’s compare?
Feel a difference? You should feel it! For everything the 2-nuclear processor of Apple A5X with the 4-nuclear graphic chip which surpasses the latest NVIDIA Tegra 3 platform in the lines (on it answers ASUS Transformer Prime) works.
For desperate gamers of iPad 3 – that the doctor registered. Let’s look at screenshots of a shooter of Mass Effect Infiltrator. It seems to me, you can find, where that. If doubt, press pictures (attention! 2 Mb not very well what).
My verdict is as follows:
1. If you have no iPad and you doubt, what model to take, buy iPad 3.
2. If you have iPad 1, safely change it for iPad 3.
3. If you have iPad 2 and it is necessary to you only for check of mail, surfing in a network, communication in social networks, wait a year more.
4. If you like to read from the screen, take iPad 3. Eyes to you will say bolshushchy thanks.
5. If you have an Android, good luck!
