I got a Phantom 4 recently, and the iOS app is a little more advanced than the Android iteration (I have a Galaxy S7). Since I wanted a tablet display anyhow, I got myself an iPad Pro with LTE - so that way I have a GPS on the tablet for the DJI Go app. I also got the Smart Keyboard. It has been a while since I started divesting myself of Apple devices (just transitioned my wife from her trusty iPhone 5S to the Galaxy S7 as well) - so it was interesting coming back to the ecosystem. The good: Apple still makes some really great hardware. The iPad itself feels really nice to the touch. Solid, and is nice and light. I really like to hold the iPad. The screen - it seems overly yellow in tint when compared to my desktop monitors (which are calibrated as I do photo / video work on occasion). Really yellow. Not sure if this is a TrueTone thing, but I am a bit concerned. That said, even though it is not AMOLED, the display has a nice contrast to it, and the colors still pop without being overly contrasty to the point of being harsh (that's something Samsung likes to do - it is great for a five minute demo, not so good for long term usage). Apps - the ecosystem is the best for any tablet (assuming that we do not count legacy apps on a Surface style device). Dedicated tablet apps are still probably best on iOS. I hear Android is a wasteland, and there still aren't too many universal Windows apps that take advantage of the tablet form factor. The device is pretty snappy. Safari is nice and quick on it. The display is usable outside! This is great. Love it. Very important since I got it for the drone. The smart cover does not use Bluetooth. No fiddling around with connections, charging, etc. Thank you, Apple! Love to read on this - for all of its virtues, the Surface Pro is not that great to read on because of its size. This is about right for me. Like the antenna band (LTE) on the back instead of the ugly plastic thing that older iPads had. Speakers are a big step up from previous iPads. I won't use them much, but those rare times I do - it is nice to not have to strain to hear, especially in a noisier environment (I have four kids, so yeah) Have the option to buy the Apple Pencil to go with it. Not sure I will, but it is great to know I can. True Tone - I actually kind of like the way it has shifted with the changing environment. I know it is a love it / hate it kind of thing, but if my display wasn't overly yellow I could see myself really enjoying the adaptive display. Is nice not to use the on-screen keyboard when you have the keyboard cover. The bad: This thing was expensive. I spent almost $1,000 (with tax) to get the unit and the keyboard. I try to not let that sink in. That's a lot for a glorified smartphone device. The keyboard cover. Who designed this awful thing? Did they not look at the competition? One angle - awkward to fold/unfold, and frankly just a mess. I eventually can type on it fairly rapidly. But no backlighting and poor design makes me wonder why Apple thinks it can charge $150 for this. My Surface Pro's keyboard is cheaper, better, and has a trackpad. Keyboard cover adds a lot of weight to the device. It is noticeably less comfortable to hold and read with it snapped on. I snap it off when I want to read. iOS doesn't support pointing devices. It is hard to do serious work (for me) and have to tap on the screen. Fortunately, I don't need this much. iOS on a tablet still feels like a toy. The bright colors, the slow animations when going into and out of a folder (iPad zooms in, iPad zooms out), and the general tenor of everything is just weird coming from Android and Windows which seem more purpose driven. Seeing all of the icons barfed on the home screen is jarring coming from OS's that can hide garbage apps that YOU CANNOT DELETE, OR DO NOT WANT. TouchID seems slower than it was on my iPhone 5S, and definitely slower than it is on my Galaxy. Not sure if I got a bad unit, or if the sensor on the Pro is worse than that on the phones. It takes it a little bit of time to register. Snapping apps is awkward and slow. Especially if you want to switch which app goes on the left and the right. That said, it seems to work. Occasional hangs (iOS 9.3.4). Not sure why, but Mail has hung on me twice so far. Lightning cables are expensive and not ubiquitous. As long as there is a need for lightning cables, Apple will remain profitable. Takes forever to charge. Coming from devices that have QuickCharge - I was shocked to see the device only go up a few percentage points after being plugged in for a few minutes. I am used to much more rapid charging. 2GB of RAM. I notice that some of my apps can take a while to refresh after being out of focus for a short time. With split-screen not sure how long 2GB will take, but iOS is better at RAM than Android. Miss having a back button. Every app seems to have a different way of getting out of the current state, or going back to a prior menu/screen. Overall, I would give this iPad Pro a 7/10. Most of this is due to its price and what you get for it. In a way, I think it is reflective of post-Steve-Jobs Apple. Coasting on the good designs that came before, not being so successful with new features (Keyboard Cover), and keeping profit margins extremely high with little new innovation to show. iOS while it has added a few new things, is more or less the same, but seems a bit buggier than I remember. It certainly could never replace my laptop, but I love that all of my Office apps are on it - so I can take a quick note whenever I want and it all syncs on the cloud. The keyboard makes it all less painful. So I might actually use my laptop less, though it doesn't replace it. If I didn't need it, I wouldn't buy it again. But now that I have it, I certainly like using it.
