This pretty much. The aspect ratio is one of the reasons I prefer the iPad over other tablets.Vaguely related, I'm very happy Apple stick with 4:3 personally. Had 16:9 tablets in the past briefly, everything except video suffers. Not a worthy trade off imo.
As someone who gets motion sickness when they use "shakey camera" - the black bars help me. I like them because I know it's widescreen when it has the bars and I prefer wide-screen to cut off full screen. lol.
That said, shakey camera bothers me the MOST about movies today. Makes me sick to my stomach.
I actually like the black bars. This way, I can have the media controls available on-screen without blocking any part of the show.Hello, i am wondering if black bars bother you when you are watching movies content?
Its huge black bar and many lost space, do you prefer watching on iPad (4:3) or another device in 16/10 or 16/9?
I don't mind it, the only thing I find stupid is that movies can play on my widescreen device but often still have the black bars (essentially defeating the purpose of widescreen TVs.) I don't know why companies do that.
Thanks, I totally forgot why they did it.... but it's still annoying, lol.
