The 2017 iPad 9.7 inch performs well thanks to its A9 chipset, and the 2048 x 1536 Retina display is gorgeous. However, due to the fact that it has not been laminated to the glass, it can reflect quite a bit of light.
The 2017 model of the Apple iPad 9.7-inch has received positive reviews for its great price without sacrificing performance, making use of the A9 chipset. Users liked the amazing 2048 x 1536 (264ppi) IPS Retina display, its responsiveness and its good battery life. The sleek look also received praise along with its lightweight build. However, while many loved the screen’s resolution and clarity, some thought that because the screen is not laminated to the glass, it had more glare. Others also found that it feels slightly cheap in hand. The new 2017 iPad 9.7-inch is really well priced and uses the A9 chipset to drive it, however, while the display is amazing, the reflections may turn off some users.
