    I have an :apple: iPad 4 which is still fast and good even though it's 2 years old. I went to a nearby electronics store and i found the iPad Air, I tried it and i felt that the screen feels so plastic and feels so cheap, I was curious to know if all iPad air's screens have the same problem, cause I tried the iPad 4 and iPad Air 2 and they didn't feel like the air :cool:??

    All iPad Air (1) feel the same. If you don't like the one you tried at that electronic store then you won't like any of them.

    I didn't particularly like that either but it wasn't the reason I returned mine.

    I didn't know the screen feels so plastic. I have no problem with Air 1 so far.

    That's because the device feels hollow. The Air 2 feels solid just like the Mini.

    Yep, the plastic feeling to the Air 1 screen can be annoying at times.

    Just the price we pay for Apple's need for thin!

    I have the iPad Air 2 which is the first iPad I've owned myself. Got it as a birthday present just over a month ago and I absolutely love it. I only handled an Air (1) once before and just know I am very happy with getting the Air 2. Feels terrific IMO (and looks it, too!)
