Long time iPad user...my last iPad was the iPad 3 (with iOS 7). I bought a iPad Air today and noticed that the text is a little like the pre-iPad retina (choppy). I did not notice this a s much on my iPad 3. Some say it may be due to the new screen thickness, etc...

Like to know evryones thougts on this. If I enlarge the text (reverse pinch) it is clean. But looking at the text on the main screen for example, the text under the app (name of app) seems a little choppy as does the rest of the text.

It's the new font in iOS 7. Also, chill out.

Chill out? Why would you even say such a thing? OP has a valid concern. He was using iOS 7 on his iPad 3 and didn't have the text problem, but he does on the Air. So perhaps it's not "the new font".

Agree. This poster made a dumb statement about chilling out. Sometimes we should all re-read our posts first, before posting, and ask ourselves, is this post mature or stupid. ;)

Glad you said that, as I thought the same, text at times appeared less 'retina' than on the 4 with iOS 6.

Not sure if it's the Air LCD or fonts in iOS 7, but it's really a minor difference.

One thing for sure is I'll never sell my 4 with iOS 6 on it...

Noticed that as well.

Whenever the LCD merged with the Glass (iPhone 5 and later), screen does seem just a tiny bit less retina.

First, it was quite distracting, but now I've gotten used to it.

Not to hijack this thread or anything but , does anyone with ipad air feel like screen is choppy sometimes? Especially noticeable when scrolling in web browsing and swiping between different home screens. I was under the impression that this new 64bit CPU was a beast and should have the new ipad screaming smooth .
