    I have no bluetooth issues with iOS6 on this iPad. On the iPad 3, by bluetooth cut in and out when I upgraded to iOS6. Also, my screen is white on the bottom half and yellow on the top half. :/

    ?

    Screen white on the bottom and yellow on the top half referring to your 3 or 4?

    Would you rate the screen better or worse than the 3?

    Also can you honestly feel 2x as fast on all applications you run on the 4?

    I am debating if I should upgrade my 3 to a 4... I got a mini already though :)

    It's hard to say. While typing this, the keyboard and website look more white on the left side and has a yellow tint on the right side. I am holding the screen in landscape with the home button to the left, and I must say the left side of the screen resembles what my ipad 3 would show while the right side is quite annoying. I just got this yesterday and will give it a few days to see if it fixes itself over time. But when watching hd YouTube vids or Hulu I feel the ipad 4 reproduces color and blacks a lot better then my ipad 3. Also the ipad 4 does indeed feel snappier, and the reason why i upgraded was not because of the speed, because really you probably won't be able to tell that much of a difference, but to be sure my ipad will be compatible with all the latest apps that will make use of this new processor.

    I would think about exchanging I'm holding my 4th gen just as you describe with my 3 next to me the 4 appears better but not by much I don't have this half white half yellow you mention I would go to apple and try to compare it to a display or see what a genius says

    Since you have both 3 and 4 right now, is 4 a worthy upgrade? (I don't do those graphic intensive games).

    I did the same upgrade and I have to say that I'm happy with it.
    The thing is blazing fast, no lag whatsoever. The three didn't have a lot of lag either, but this thing has NONE, if that makes sense. $140 less lag? Hard to tell, low-hanging-fruit principle.

    On the other hand, wifi is a lot more reliable, full bars all around the house vs 3 to 2 bars on the 3.

    Screen is the same for me. I actually found my 4 to have a better screen. My 3 used to have a tinge of red on the right side of the ipad. Not a big deal but its there.
    On the 4 everything is more yellow, but at least it's even.
    Only downside I can think of is the FaceTime hd still sucks.
    But overall, happy with it.
    Would not have paid $200 for the upgrade, but for $140, I did it (sold my 3 at a good price on craigslist)

    Only if it matters to you that you have the latest and the dock connector I find myself using my gfs mini more than my 4 really it's not worth it

    My iPad also has a very minor tinge of yellow on part of the screen-- the lower right quadrant. It's only noticeable while scrutinizing on a solid white background. I will keep regardless, but hope its something that settles to a normal state after usage. Perhaps a pipe dream.

    My iPad 4 has a distinctly yellow hue compared to my old iPad 2. It is pretty uniform across the screen however. As I have until the end of January to return it at Target, I will see if it 'settles' over the next few weeks. I'm also going to check out some display models at my local Apple store today, to see what the norm is.
    Coming from a 2, however, I am LOVING the retina. I get the same kick as I do whenever I use my iPhone 4S - everything is just so SHARP - now I can easily read websites in portrait because the smaller text is still so clearly defined.

    My 4 display looks nicer than the 3 I had. The 3 always looked a bit washed out. Wi-Fi does seem better. I'm very happy with mine.
