- iPad 3 – any good?
Was the 3 the first one with the new style connector? And the higher -res screen?
3 has the the old style connector but yeah it was the first iPad with Retina display, Bluetooth 4.0, 1GB RAM, and 1080p video camera.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve been offered an iPad 3 for (I think) pretty cheap – £120. Is it still a decent tablet? All I’ll really be using it for is surfing, watching movies and reading magazines and that, so not really a power user.
I like the idea of a bigger screen over something like a Nexus, as I have a fair hefty phone and 7″ doesn’t seem like that much of a step up!Posted 3 years agoross980Member
I’ve got a 3. Never found it slow or laggy. The retina screen is great and the battery hasn’t seemed to deteriorate after 18 months (9-10 hours use per charge). Charging takes a long time and it won’t charge off the 12v adaptor in the car or my portable USB battery thing. Mine was an Apple refurb (though it was discontinued when I got it and it may have been brand new according to some sources). It cost £370 for a 32gb. I’d say £120 is a very good price, even if just 16gb.Posted 3 years ago

Yeah it needs a 10 watt (2.1 amp) charger.
iPhone chargers are often 5 watt (1 amp) and won’t manage to charge an iPad (or at least it will be very slow)Posted 3 years agojambalayaSubscriber
@flying – that seems like a steal ! How much storage ? I have an iPad1 (4+ years now) still used every day and I understand I could probably sell that for around £100 and it has no retina screen, is stuck on iOS5 (vs 7 now) and it crashes quite a bit as current website ads are very complex and it cannot handle some of them. FYI I have a 64GB one and if I bought again I think 32 would be fine.
My iPad charger broke, you can charge it with a phone charger it just takes along time
If you don’t want it I’ll have it !! email if profile 😉Posted 3 years ago
