Full sized 9.7" With AT&T LTE (not activated, yet). I could not see getting the mini when it would likely not fit in my pocket, and when I have the Nexus 7. I was wanting something a bit bigger and getting a bunch of android tablets and phones seemed a bit redundant.
I have not had to charge it yet. It was 85% when I got it. Its at like 65% right now.
Some stuff I have done so far:
Set a couple reminders for next week (lets see if it works, I never used this feature on anything yet)
Set airplay mirroring and played Angry birds (need to bench test things, right?
) on the iPad and my 47" tv. Also tried web browsing, youtube videos, tried the camera but it did not work, not that it was needed, I just wanted to try it.
The device is fairly light, easy to handle, or sit in my lap. I have not used if for long periods of time, or trying to write long post or work processing on the thing, if needed, I would have to spring for a keyboard.
Construction is, as you would expect, premium. It, honestly, is a bit of a step up from many of the android devices. Does Apple have a patent on aluminum too? Is that why most android devices are Polycarbonate? I am sure the Polycarbonate is cheaper and more absorbant, but I am getting off track.
I have yet to harass siri, that is on the to-do list :evil:
Or download some of my previous content to the device.
This thing is a finger print magnent! I am glad I got the white one!
Text is sharp and clear zoomed all the way in. The LCD is bright, I have it at about 45% or around that.
I am starting to wonder if I should have got the 64gb version. I think I can manage the 32gig, will know more when I dig into this thing a bit more.
A bit more.
I also notice a lot of ads and pop ups, but I am used to using an ad blocker (I know, I don't need to hear it,
) on some games and web viewing. So, not really an Apple only thing there.
