Agreed. I've never had any problems with my air. As mentioned above, remember that everyone's uses are different and for almost everyone the air will perform perfectly.The Air 1 does not stutter or have any performance problems despite what some might say. Every user will have a different total setup and use case scenarios but overall the day to day performance between the two is pretty trivial. Face it, the Air 2 didn't have many REAL upgrades other than the RAM. Thinner simply made it vibrate a lot. Touch ID? So what. Some screen coating that apparently makes the screen better? Whatever.
No distortion on my Air 2, no stuttering on my Air 1. I think you're right about the RAM limitation. Your comment about the Air 1 screen is funny but true. It felt funny when I first got it, and it still feels funny today. No other iPad I've had felt/feels that way.I have both. The only downside with Air 1 for me is the plastic feel of the screen. No major performance difference. But then I don't have zillions of apps or tabs in safari open at once.
No screen distortion on Air 2 unless you press the back really hard, in my experience, and the vibration doesn't bother me, I use headphones or external speakers for music or movies, and don't have volume up full when using internal speakers. And, very rarely holding iPads, they are on various stands or hoverbars, or propped up with smart covers or keyboard cases.
1GB RAM in the Air 1 will no doubt limit it as things develop, beginning with not getting split screen.
Your experiences notwithstanding, it seems clear based on several responses that this isn't a universally recognized problem. "Like hell" is a relative term anyway; my Air may stutter every once in a while, but that doesn't mean "like hell" to me. It's still a perfectly functional, pleasant to use tablet.I don't care what you people say about the Air 1, it stutters like hell with default settings.
Maybe your Air 1 dissed you? But my Air 1 is perfectly FINE, no stutter at all. I'm pleased with it My only disappointment is no split view feature for Air 1 so it is time for me to upgrade to Air 3. *sigh*I don't care what you people say about the Air 1, it stutters like hell with default settings.
depends on what is your main purpose. is it just a consumption device (browsing, movies, games) or would you like to do some work (sketch, take notes... and in the future read articles while writing about them - a splitscreen functionality)?Hello,
Which of the two iPad Air is the best in terms of problems?
