    Hello,

    I have a question about FaceTime quality on iPad Pro 10.5. While quality of the front camera in camera app is awesome, in FaceTime is blurry, and noticeably less crisp than on my iPad Air 2. Anyone noticed? I think that this is a software bug, let me know if Yours is the same.

    Best regards

    Dawid

    FaceTime only broadcasts at 720p to save bandwidth.

    I know that, but the picture is less crisp on facetime on pro 10.5 than on Air 2

    I used facetime last night for the first time on my 10.5 and I was just thinking how nice and crisp it looked honestly. I am accustomed to my iPhone for facetime, so I'm not sure how it compares but it definitely looked great to me. My old iPad I haven't used to facetime for quite some time so I'm not sure how it compares.

    I use FaceTime nightly (I can't hear on the phone) and I've noticed a real improvement of video quality on my 10.5 vs my Air 2.

    I Think that I figured it out. Air 2 front camera handles better low light situations (thanks to less megapixels). In good lighting front camera of 10.5 shines. In FaceTime too.

    I was going to say I agree. I noticed the quality on the 10.5 for FT was lesser to my wife's 9.7...as well as the speakers.
