Apple ipad 8th gen 2020 review: Design

Talking about design and bid quality, the body of the iPad is of metal (aluminum). Regarding the glass used for display protection, Apple has not given any information but it has definitely said that very strong glass has been used for protection. The height of the iPad is 9.8 inches and 6.8 inches in width. The Wi-Fi variant weighs 490 grams and the cellular variant with Wi-Fi weighs 495 grams, although it is slightly heavier than the first version.

The top left has a 3.5mm headphone jack, while the right has a power button on the corner. The volume card has a SIM card tray in the right side, up and down. The bottom has a charging port and dual speaker grille. Bumps will not be found at all with the rear camera. The top panel on the back panel has large plastic chunk for the antenna. Touch IID is for Security as is the iPhone SE 2 (2020).

Apple ipad 8th gen 2020 review: Display

The new iPad has a 10.2-inch liquid retina display (LCD) with a resolution of 2160x1620 pixels and brightness 500 nits. Bezel is quite available with the display, but the bezel is less on the edge but the top and bottom are quite bezel. The front camera is given in the center of the display. Compared to Samsung's tab, Samsung has reduced the bezel considerably in the last few years. Apple was expected to get fewer bezels on the new iPad, though it did not.

Now all hope is on the launch of the new model. The quality of the display is good. Colors and brightness are good with the display. Color saturation is also good. Does not disturb the display in hard sunlight. The maximum brightness of the display is 500 nits. A clear distinction can be felt between the display of iPhone and iPad.

The 8th Gen iPad is supported with Apple Pencil which you can use to control the entire iPad, although with this iPad you get the support of the first generation pencil. There is no place in the iPad to hold the pencil like Samsung's tab. You will have to keep it separate, however for charging, there is definitely a Lightning port in it.

Apple ipad 8th gen 2020 review: Hardware and Software

The new iPad offers up to 128 GB of storage with 3 GB of RAM. It has an A-12 bionic chipset. Talking about software, iPadOS 14 is available in this iPad. Please tell that the iPhone XR only had A12 chipset.

The A12 is indeed a powerful processor whose performance we have also seen in the iPhone XR. There is no problem with performance in daily life. Heavy games like Asphalt-9 and Call of Duty also do not take long to load. There is no problem with multitasking.

App and tab switching is also smooth. We also played a lot of games on this iPad. When playing Asphalt-9 continuously for about 30 minutes, the tab is slightly warm, although not so hot that you have a problem. We did not face any lag or frame breaks during gaming. The interface is largely similar to the iPhone.

If you are fond of drawing, then Apple Pencil is nothing less than a gift for you. Pencil performance is good. Touch works smoothly. Handwriting written with pencil can be converted to text in one tap. The sound of the speaker is adequate and the sound quality is also good. The sound is not piercing in the ears. Microphones also do their job well. We had a great experience talking on the iPad.

Talking about the camera, there is an 8 megapixel camera on the rear panel, which has an aperture f / 2.4 and it also has autofocus. Also, HDR is supported. Panorama is available with the camera which is up to 43 megapixels. Face detection and auto image and video stabilization are also available with the rear camera. With the rear camera, you can record HD video at 1080 pixels.

Slow motion video recording is also available at 120fps. 3x video zoom and get. The quality and performance of the rear camera is good both day and night but with the front camera comes noise in low light. The front has a 1.2 megapixel lens with an aperture of 4 / 2.4 and you can record 720 pixels of video with it. HDR is also supported in the front. Camera is good for video calling and online classes

Apple ipad 8th gen 2020 review: battery

The new iPad has a 32.4WH i.e. 8000mAh battery, with which the company claims 10 hours of web surfing or video streaming. During the review the battery of this iPad did not disappoint us. Along with the iPad, a 15-watt charging adapter is also available in the box, which takes about two and a half hours to fully charge the iPad. The battery life of the iPad is good. If you play games and watch videos, the battery will support you throughout the day, although the battery runs out quickly in video calling. If you do more video calling along with playing games and watching videos, the battery may have to be charged once in 20 hours.

Overall, Apple has been identified as luxury gadgets, but for the first time Apple has launched the ipad 8th Gen in the budget for iPad seekers. The ipad 8th Gen is the best tablet in the Rs 30,000 range.
