    This one works well. But only for reading and surfing ie studying. I don't think the specifications are good enough for its use as a laptop. Memory is 32gb and ram is only 2gb. But display is great and size is very comfortable for reading and even youtube. I was tired of reading on my phone as I didn't always want to switch on the bulky laptop. This ipad solved my problem.

    But i bought it during the Diwali sale for only 18.5k as there were multiple offers at that time. So my review is based on that price. For 24.4 k I'm not sure whether it's a wise buy or not as it's on the expensive side.

    If you can wait for sometime and if you want this iPad then you can see if prices come down. At 18.5k it is totally worth it! But at 24.4 I feel it's expensive.

  • Koi bhi tab le lo. Padhne se matlab Hona chahiye.
    Main toh abhi bhi Apne 4 Saal puraane Lenovo tab se padhta hoon.
    How does it matter if it has the latest processor or most updated firmware.
    What do you need? a pdf reader/editor, some storage, decent screen size, few news apps and Evernote. That's it.
    Yeh toh sab mein Chalta hai.

    Koi 1 lakh Rs Ka tab leke bhi Nahi padhta air koi 5k ke tab mein bhi UPSC clear Kar leta hai
    The day we decided that the worth of an individual was determined by their performance in an examination, that was the day Education failed us.

    बने पुजारी प्रेमी साकी, गंगाजल पावन हाला,
    रहे फेरता अविरत गति से मधु के प्यालों की माला'
    'और लिये जा, और पीये जा', इसी मंत्र का जाप करे'
    मैं शिव की प्रतिमा बन बैठूं, मंदिर हो यह मधुशाला ।

  • iPad soch k lena bhai.

    You will not be able to add music easily. Photos transfer easily nhi hongi. Har cheez k liye ya toh ShareIt use karna padega ya iTunes (which might not be installed on your friend's laptop) ya internet/cloud. I own an iPad.
    -songs can either ONLY be synced with iTunes; or you have to use a third party music app; or do not sync with iTunes and just drag and drop to iTunes; and all of these require either an Internet or iTunes software.
    -If I have to watch a movie on VLC I cannot add subtitles easily. Computer se transfer karke hi VLC mein subtitles aate hain and this requires iTunes (or I can use wireless ftp transfer within VLC)
    -Siri is not as good as Google assistant.
    -Any small damage to the device and you will have to shed another fortune on repair.
    -sharing with a friend via Bluetooth highly cumbersome (even with ShareIt, both must have ShareIt and it asks for creating a hotspot first and android to apple transfer is a little difficult)
    -if you are at a friend's house and you want a movie/pdf/audio from his laptop you will either have to share it via cloud or install iTunes on his laptop or install ShareIt or use a third party file management app from AppStore which allows wireless sharing. (Unlike android where just plug a USB and copy paste)
    -the Apple data cable is not a micro USB. So at a friend's place also remember to carry your data cable (or use wireless methods of transfer)

    More recently Apple has been going for data obsolecsing => devices ko kisi tarah se slow ya obsolete kar dena. Many devices are getting slow because of iOS updates. If you do take an iPad, DO NOT UPDATE THE iOS beyond iOS10.

    If you are going for android try to take at least >4GB RAM. Nhi toh hang hota rahega.

    If you are already invested in an Apple ecosystem, you can still think of buying an iPad. Even in that go for mini because it is affordable and light weight. 10" and more is not needed and hinders portability. For eg, reading a newspaper with a 10" would give you more screen real estate, but your hands will get tired after some time; playing a racing car game would tire you earlier than an 8" tab. One disadvantage of an 8" is that the split screen feature (in both android and Apple) would not be as useful as in a 10" tablet.

    And before deciding the size, it is advisable to go to a store and hold a device in your hand, judge the weight in your hands, hold it with one hand and then both hands & in portrait and landscape mode.

    Apple does offer good customer care if you are within warranty period. And holding an Apple device in your hands is a different experience altogether. But all of this comes at a premium.
