The iPad Pro 9.7 is apple's latest tab and it doesn't disappoint.
I personally wanted to see if this is any good and if it can replace my MacBook Pro so I went ahead and bought it from iPlanet store. Price on amazon is shockingly higher than apple's official price....apple has dropped prices on iPad and I got mine at 65,900.
The display of iPad Pro 9.7 is amazing! The resolution is sharp enough for most eyes but the selling point here is the true tone display...you may think it's not worth talking about but having used it I can say that it's one of the best tech available right now....it makes everything easier on your eyes.Other than that it's worth mentioning that the display has greater efficiency compared to iPad Air 2 display....if you're planning on comparing this display to iPad Pro 12.9 then do note that the contrast on iPad Pro 12.9 is higher and blacks are inky black on 12.9...that said it does support Apple Pencil
The design of iPad Pro 9.7 is pretty similar to iPad Air 2 but you've got a camera hump at the back, 4 speaker grills and a smart connector for keyboard
The iPad Pro 9.7 is faster than the iPhone 6s in fact in geek bench it comes closer to the iPhone 7....A9X is a beast overall.
CPU and GPU provide 2x faster performance than iPad Air 2,multitasking is a breeeze as well
I get around 7-8 hours on heavy use and 10-11 hours on regular the supplied charger is 10w instead of 12w from Air 2
It supports the same sensor from 6s without any OiS, front 5mp camera has Retina Flash and rear camera can shoot 4K and Live Photos..
It runs on iOS 10, but it doesn't have 3D Touch....it does have additional features for pen input and a Pro level keyboard which has special commands in certain apps
Overall it is a great iPad I don't see any cons in it since iPads are used as benchmark for tablets these days,
There's no calling feature but if you have an iPhone then it can receive calls...
Airdrops works brilliantly with my MacBook Pro
So is iPad Pro a laptop replacement?
I think it'll replace 80% of the things you do....but apps like photoshop,illustrator work best on laptops and even for coding you'll need a laptop but for browsing web,typing word docs,music needs etc it's the best.
Also, do note that after iOS 10 upgrade you'll have around 230gb free and to be honest one can even live with 32gb storage,256gb is overkill.
