Ok, I bought into all the hype & picked up a 4th gen iPad 32GB wifi today to replace my 16GB iPad 2.
Finally got everything backed up, installed & restored. What I don't get is that I'm really not seeing a huge difference. Yes, the display appears to be a little sharper & color is marginally better. Speed doesn't seem that much faster to me. Maybe slightly, but I'm very underwhelmed at the moment.
Can someone suggest something to try that will clearly illustrate & justify the upgrade from an iPad 2 to iPad 4? Seriously, I'm using them side by side, displaying the same images from each & running the same apps, etc. but am not even close to being "blown away". I picked this up from Bestbuy, so returning the iPad 4 is easy enough... just want to make sure I'm not missing something.
I'm a photographer with a focussed eye on graphic display, and am simply not seeing that much difference here. I'm no novice with regards to photography either:
I don't play games much, but use the iPad on the road for content creation including video work. So far, I'm wondering what the gain was by upgrading to iPad 4?
Running side by side, same apps, looking at same photos... and, I'm pretty underwhelmed initially. I must be missing something, because I don't notice it being that much better. Doesn't feel any faster. Fine text is a bit crisper. Photos have very slightly better color/contrast, but only if you're looking at them side by side with a critical eye.
Unless I discover something I'm missing or don't have set right... Might return it. I really don't care about Siri either. Don't find myself using it on the iPhone 5 either. So far, disappointed in this new iPad. I have to be missing something though, since the reviews keep talking about what an order of magnitude leap ahead the retina screen & A6 processor are. Can't be ALL hype can it?
