[MR] iPad 3 with LTE, Quad-Core Processor and Retina Display Set for March Launch - Page 11

post #101 of 253

^One great thing about 2012 is that cell phone batteries weigh about 25g and are fairly small, hence "lugging" them is no longer a problem.

Add to that, battery management has improved with Android 2.3.x, with even better optimizations for 4.0 ICS.

Looks like a very impressive tablet. By far better than anything else currently offered. This is coming from a huge Android fan and proud owner of a G2X and a Lenovo TPT. What has always impressed me though, is that when Apple releases new products, Android manufacturers soon follow with products that are in many cases just as good or even better. I'm pretty sure there are a number of tablets that most would consider equally footed with the iPad 2 and some that are even better.

Since the iPad 3 is so impressive, I can't wait to see the Android responses that follow.

If the PPI of the iPad 3 is anything close to the iPhone 4/4S, then no, nothing even comes close to it. What I'd really love to see is a tablet with a super high PPI and a Super AMOLED+ screen (and no Pentile). That would be breathtaking.

Forumviewer, I don't think you grasped what I was trying to say, not that I expected you to....

My original stock battery would last me an entire day, and I am a very heavy user. I do tech support for an office of 100+ users and my phone functions as a constantly used tool to manage user accounts, email, im etc. After a full day of use from 7am to 11pm I still had at least 15% of a charge. I only upgraded to a higher capacity battery because I wanted to, not because I had to. The new battery ($30 from Amazon) last me at least two days, sometimes three. My point about being able to change the battery was that i could take extra batteries with me if I am going somewhere that will not have a place for me to recharge. If I want to go camping for the weekend I can easily take an extra battery or two and function for several days without having any access to electricity.

My girlfriend has a spare battery too and has gotten into the habbit of recharging her battery with a small plug in charger. She just swaps the battery out when it runs down and she never has to plug her phone in to recharge it. That seems to be what she likes to do, and she has to the freedom to do so.

You really don't see any advantages to anything outside of what Apple offers you. How you can be so blindly devoted to a company like that I have no idea.
I got tired of their "our way or the highway" attitude years ago and never looked back.

The last straw for me was when I dropped $300 on an iPod that needed a new battery after about 15 months. They wanted almost $150 to replace the battery, thankfully I could do it myself as I work on electronics daily. The second battery lasted about a year and now the third one no longer holds a charge. I haven't bothered to fix it because it is such a pain in arse to take the thing apart. I have also replaced the main board and the screen in it over the time that I have owned it. I am to the point that I want to just throw it in the trash. My droid X2 has replaced it anyway.

^ I'm talking LTE. You mustn't be. From all the reviews I've read, no LTE phone will last all day on a single charge when connected to an LTE network (with heavy usage, as you describe).

It's always funny to me when I read anecdotes from Apple bashers. I simply do not believe that your iPod's battery was that bad. I had a first gen iPod nano that still kept a charge after 5 years. I have an old iPod Video that still keeps a charge, 3 years later. My previous 3GS always kept its charge. My wife's 3GS always kept its charge. And like I said, no cell phone I've ever owned in the last 12 years had battery problems (phones that long pre-dated my first Apple device). My old flip phones, Creative Zen mp3 players, etc etc. So I'm just going to call shenanigans on your pretty little story, because I'm just not buying it. Especially your quoted charge of $300.

Further more, in my previous post, I said "to each their own". If you're fine carrying around spare parts for a cell phone, more power to you. I am not, I expect more out of my devices, clearly you do not.

At the end of the day though it doesn't really matter unless there are apps to take advantage of the extra power. And that's why Apple has a giant leg up on competition.

A5 only wins in the linpack benchmark against the xoom which is only possible due to the java helping

The only issues I have with Apples tablets are their lack of support for editing document without paying through the nose for Pages, which then has formatting issues and the overall lack of really useful applications that customize how you use your tablet. I really think Android is pushing towards the business sector (with Google sync etc.) while the iPad is aimed at more personal/home use. For example, I got an Asus Transformer TF101 for my fiancee for Christmas, with the intention of trading it back in for a Transformer Prime. She is going to be starting a practicum for her teaching degree in a month, and needs something to have her lesson plans on the go and keep up with evaluation of students. She has an iPhone and a Macbook, so I really considered the iPad, but then saw the issues with Word and Google Docs, and the fact that the keyboard for the Asus Prime turns it into a high powered netbook made the choice pretty clear.

We traded the Asus tablet for an iPad at her request, and then immediately traded it back. Apples tablet and Android's tablets are identical guys, they have basically the same important apps, they both run smoothly on similarly priced products, they both have similar touch interfaces, they all have similar high resolution IPS screens. The only real difference is being open-source vs. closed and tightly controlled, and I think consumers are starting to realize "I can't do that on my iPad" is a frustrating reality. It was for us. We couldn't sync in Google docs and calendars without a lengthy run around. We couldn't edit Word documents. Typing was a hassle. Even though my fiancee has an iPhone and is used to that sort of interface, the iPad feels like it has SOOO much wasted space with the gigantic size of all the launchers, and we couldn't do much to change that. We have the Transformer Prime now and it is great. ICS makes it even better. The access to the file system is alone worth it if you like to know what's going on in your tablet. I'm not saying the iPad 3 won't be great- if I had no use for word documents, typing in general or having a customizable interface I would have gone for the iPad. But to me, the iPad feels like more of a toy than a on the go useful computer replacement. Regardless of the internals, the iPad is going to have the same fluffed up and ultimately redundant marketplace due to the tightly controlled nature.

The processors aren't made by them, the screens aren't either, same with the LTE receiver and pretty much everything else.

CES had a lot of tablets with similar specs...which makes sense since the technology is available to anyone. Apple doesn't really make anything other than the case and the OS...and I'm not 100% sure they make the cases.
