    Here is few pics I took today with my Pro and two of my Air 2's. I tried to get the pic exactly to scale in each tablet.

    iPad Pro recap so far:
    Battery life test of my Pro has exceeded the 10 hour mark and looks to be a honest 12 hours of internet use. Speakers are class leading and blows away any tablet and most all laptops I have heard. Speed is blistering fast with screen spitting apps. Its not that my Air 2 running ios 9.2 is slow but compared to the Pro its noticeably slower.



    Battery testing:

    iPad Pro:
    A loss of 11% per 90 minutes of Netflix play. Loss of .1222% per minute of use. 7.333% a hour. Total of 12.2 hours of Netflix play. This is with screen and volume set at 50%. Location services are on.

    This mirrors my iPad 3 battery life and what I have tested is the gold standard of battery life for a tablet.
    This is very impressive considering it's driving 4 speakers sounds louder than all the other tablets and it's brightness is brighter than all the other tablets set at 50% brightness. In the real world, I would set it to 40ish % and volume lower and get considerably better battery life.

    To put this into perspective here are a few other tablets and how they performed in the similar test.

    Samsung Tab S 10": loss of 23% per 90 minutes giving it a 6.52 hour Netflix play time.
    Lenovo Tab 2 A10: loss of 17% per 90 minutes giving it a 8.82 hour Netflix play time.
    IPad 3: loss of 11% per 90 minutes giving it a 12.2 hour of Netflix play time.

    Everyone has been posting up 1 iPad compared to the Pro, but thanks for showing 2 next to it. It pretty crazy that the Pro is about the size of 2 regular iPads.

    Very welcome. What's funny that when I use split screen, it really does look like I am running two Air 2's side by side without the bezels.
    When using pip like watching Hulu and surfing reading this forum, the pip looks like a mini 4 floating around the Pro.

    It's like split screen was made for the Pro. Much better than on the Air 2

    They weren't lying about it being the size of two iPads.

    Funny how 12.9" vs 9.7" doesn't sound like its as much of a difference as it is.
