I have personally tested the Air 2 sound/vibration. Though I felt the vibration, IMHO, it's not a defect and since I use headset mostly, its a non issue.

As for the spot appearing on the screen while holding at the lower right side of the iPad, it does happen. And IMHO it's not a defect. It's due to the design. Since I use case on the iPad, this is also a non issue.

I suppose it's really to each his own. For those who are bothered, then, perhaps Air 2 it's not for you.
Yes I agree, since I am using it with a case...not an issue for me too.

Returning mine
Actually, I opt for replacement. The anti-reflective coating on mine has peeled off. I thought it was oil spits, yet it still persist when i tried to clean them.

Here's one spot of them (see the dots around the light reflections). There three more scattered around the screen, even the white bezel does have them.

No lha... Clean the screen and you can see this under strong light or sun.

I support you fully on getting replacement and get the best display that you can possibly have. But...I tried to check the distortion problem in 3 apple stores already...seems like all have leh. One is more prominent than the others but all can see when you shake the ipad while holding with right hand.

Yah, I also tested a few demo sets from various stores. Agree all have this issue but its the degree of "severity". Hopefully this new set will not distort so much.

So got a replacement set and the new set is so much better - no distortion unless I press really really hard. But alas! There is a speck of dust under the screen! Sigh can't have the perfect one... Not sure if I want to get another replacement.. What do you guys think?

If its a tiny speck I'd ignore it...

Does anyone screen goes blank when scrolling certain pages? Mine does. I need to lift my finger for the page to load.

Tried the iPad 2 demo set at Nubox CWP. While the distortion does not appear when holding it normally, it appeared when i applied minimal pressure on the back. Think I'll stick to the iPad Air 1 which does not exhibit this issue

Just got my air 2, been using it for a day. Dont see any screen distortion from the way i hold the device.

The vibration from the speakers is really strong though

IMHO its not a big issue.

I've tested the one at Nubox and the blue blotch does appear. I recently bought one on Wed (pre-installed IOS 8.1) and tested it in front of CSO. The blotch didnt appear that easily as the demo unit. I tested it again at home. I had to deliberately shake it up and down for it to appear. If used normally, it doesnt appear at all.

It's probably due to the slim design that this blue blotch are more prone to appear when pressed deliberately (from back cover) or shaken hard.

Its really to each his own.

As for me, I am now enjoying my new Air 2 with no problem with the "Vibration" or the "Screen" issues. Its just like my new iPhone 6+. No problem with the "bendgate" issue.

As everyone can see from the vastly successful sales in many countries, these so-called issues are really non-issue.

If you really want it, go for it. If you have reasons not to, then, don't.
