My new iPad Air 2.

Got it from HN. Apparently, HN allows up to 36 months installments.

Apple's ecosystem is second to none.

On another note, I think I'll wait for iPad Air 3. iPad Air 2 like not that big an upgrade from my iPad Air. Any users switched from Air to Air 2? How's the performance?

Nicer screen as I prefer and used to the zero air gap screen. Battery life lost to air.

Worst part is the speaker at max volume, the tablet will vibrate like crazy making unbearable for holding long.

Else is lighter and super fast compared to air.

Does the additional 1gb of RAM help with performance? Day to day use, do tabs in Safari and apps refresh less?

I normally open at most 6 tabs.

No refresh on my iPad air 2 so far.

coming from somebody who never owned ipad before (I did borrow my bro's ipad 2 sometime), is ipad air 2 a recommended buy? I tried the unit in store, my only worry is the screen distortion issue and the vibrating chassis issue. Short term it's still okay, but im not sure for long term.

Anybody can give advice?

Screen distortion?

Personally no such experience... So far, I loving it compared to my Greeny counter parts which I used to have.

As for vibration problem, Sadly, there are no fixed, I RMAed my iPad Air 2 for another new and the problem still exist, this is mainly due to the thin Aluminum chassis which Apple uses. Since Air 1, this vibration was around but not as bad as 2.

I seldom on the music and sometimes, I just use a Bluetooth headset to channel the music in.

So the screen distortion probably only happens to some of the units only. But u're quite lucky to get the non-issue model. Screen distortion is that dark spot that appears around the mid-right screen part of the ipad.

I will use my iPad mainly during commuting and browsing at home. During commuting it's okay since will use earphone but during home browsing it will be a pain because I will not use earphone at home. The vibration also makes the sound crack a bit. Actually even my iPhone (and maybe every gadget) will have some vibration if I turn up the volume too high but it won't vibrate the chassis as strong as Air 2.

Are you using case for your Air 2? I would like to know if using a case would help in reducing the vibration.
