Something has put me off using the iPad air for the year and a half I've had it and I think its the display glass. Its amazing how something as subtle as the sound it makes when you hit the screen affects the user experience. If you slightly hit the display with your nail it makes a horrible hollow plastic sound and a normal finger tap also has a louder and deeper noise than a "true glass" display. ITs amazing, this has really put me off using the device. The original couple of iPads it felt like a mobile computer screen whereas the air feels like a cheap plastic piece of trash. So there must be something going on with the display glass, I think they made it thinner to make it lighter and are using some type of glass / plastic hybrid. Is it "gorilla glass" or something, does anyone know? Well its just dawned on me whey I don't use the iPad much anymore and its this horrid display "glass" - I also notice it leaves smudges much more than the iPad 4 display which seems to be actual glass. I wonder if this is a sign of poor judgment since Steven Jobs left, as someone must have tested this thing and not noticed the display made the device horrible to use. I hear the iPad air 2 solves this issue by removing the air gap, but Im sure its the same type of plastic/glass hybrid which may mean it still smudges more. Seriously considering if the iPad 4 was the last great iPad, it seems apple have sacrificed quality for thin and light stats. What puts me off the iPad air 2 is the LOSS of battery life compared to the air and the screen distortion and vibration. - To release a device with worse battery life than previous generation is a deal breaker to me I think. ipad air 3 - I hope apple increase the battery life again and sort out the vibration and screen distortion issue (WHICH SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN IF THEY HAD TESTED THE PRODUCT BEFORE SELLING IT) even if they have to make it 1 or 2 mm thicker, don't you think thats a better trade off? I have a feeling apple will sneak in and extra gig of ram to the iPad air 3 in October so that iOS 9 screen sharing will work smoothly on 3 gigs and tempt Air 2 owners to upgrade from what will eventually be a laggy and stuttery performance after future versions of iOS 9 come out.
