The new iPad does not really change much over the previous generation iPad but it has got its fair amount of changes. The new connector might look and feel better but the accessories will cost more for a while. Overall it is a decent performer and you would not have anything to complain about.

Apple 32GB iPad with Retina Display and Wi-Fi (4th Generation) (Black) Review by Chayan Mazumder | Flipkart.comnnFirst let me talk about my gadget experience so that its clear how i'm comparing this product.nI have a moto atrix 2 (a good android product), before getting the ipad was using friend's nexus 7(best android tablet no doubt). Used my gf's galaxy s3( apart from the touch nothing excited me).nWell the review will go off track if i talk abt the above gadgets too much. But basically i'm a hard core android user and WAS a fan! nLets compare iPad with nexus 7. And people must be wondering why I'm comparing nexus 7 with iPad 4. One reason, they are phenomenal devices from the two different eco-system (iOS and Android)nnLets talk about the ipad 4 or the ipad with retina display...nPros:n1. Processor A6, the fastest till date (as on 30/03/2013). Game loading time was phenomenally better compared to nexus 7. n2. Screen size is very good for reading and a person who needs accurate representation of colours. Compared to super-amoled, that adds too must of saturation and the white is off. More of a bluish hue. iPad is definitely recommended for photographer ( me being one) colour is accurate, period.n3. Crisp display that will bring out the minute details as-well.n4. Graphics, well use it to believe it. Have compared games like Nova3, mass effect, shadow gun: dead zone, real racing and many heavy games. Its just blows nexus 7 in every aspect. Thought the nexus has chipset, Nvidia Tegra 3. Yet details are missing.n5. The user interface and usability is very smooth. No app crashes, (except for Facebook and Chrome). All the other app are working excellent. And transitions are quite smooth and nice. n6. iPad is a good productivity tool with pages and keynotes. Though they are expensive but is irreplaceable by quick office or kingsoft office. Though the latter too is a complete package. And the former two are sold separately. But they are good. And i have used each one and have thus stated what i felt. n7. Photo editing is also quite nice with the purchased apps. Or if you know how to get them for free( applies to point 7). Some apps are just not made for android. And no one has an answer to why the divide or biased behaviour by devs.n8. Oh last but not the least. Battery performance is just fantastic. No device comes close to iPad in battery backup. My personal stats are 10-14hr of use with wifi connected throughout. And a bit of gaming included. Now the range mentioned by me so vague because i have not computed or tested the tablet for actual backup with gaming. But twice without gaming and wifi connected throughout, got a performance of 13-14 hours.And brightness does play a role here and mine was at 20-25% without auto brightness! nnLets come to cons: n1. Coming from android, missing the file structure very much.n2. Interface is boring and the almost the same brought forward since 2008, when ios was incepted and was called 'iPhone os'n3. User are restricted and ios is not flexible. Eg, a pdf file needs to be added to each individual app that you want to open it with. Like i have adobe reader, goodreader and quickoffice. I needed to add it to each one of them if i need to access the file in all 3 of them.n4. Ipad is heavy and can be cumbersome for user who love light and portable devices.n5. And apple products are delicate. The slightest of nick or bump gives you a dent!n6. Apple is famous for using premium material and aluminium as the back. This results in a week wifi connectivity. Eg, if the wifi signal is week, then iPad will flutter to conmect to that wifi. Whereas Nexus/Samsung products connect to the week signal effortlessly. And this because of the fact that they have plastic backs. n7. All in all IOS is very restricted compared to Android.nnWell i cannot recommend or suggest this product as all boils down to an individual's need. But i am happy with my purchase and love it. Not because i spent a premium price or got an Apple product. But love the product cause of its performance and power!nAnd i am not trashing nexus7. It will be my second best device. If need be. I will write a review on it as-well.nBut for iPad 4th gen, i will rate it 8.5/10.
