iPad 2 & iPad 1 Web Browser (Safari) Memory Test

Tuesday 31 May 2011 @ 7:06 pm

Today I took another video comparing iPad 2 to iPad 1 in a web browser (Safari) memory test. This memory test shows the improvement in iPad 2 in term of web browsing experience.

iPad 1 has only 256MB RAM, on the other hand iPad 2 has double amount of RAM, which is 512MB. Therefore, clearly there’s one winner in this test.

Surfing the Internet on iPad 1’s Safari web browser often will run into a reloading problem when switching tabs. Most of the time, a previously visited webpage will need to be reloaded when we are switching tabs back and forth because iPad 1 has to refresh the content of the webpage when it runs out of memory.

This reloading issue won’t happen in iPad 2 whether we are switching tabs or switching between apps, thanks to the 512MB RAM.

Check out the video below to see the difference in performance :-

iPad 2 & iPad 1 Software, Apps & Game (Processing Speed) Comparison

Tuesday 31 May 2011 @ 12:45 am

I just make a video comparing the differences in software, apps and game (processing speed) on both iPad 2 & iPad 1 side-by-side.

One of the main differences you can find in iPad 2 is of course the Smart Cover. It wakes up the OS when we flip open the Smart Cover and the OS goes into sleep mode when we close the cover. This is one of the cool factors of iPad 2 and I believe it successfully attracts more buyers too.

There are 3 extra apps pre-installed in iPad 2 because it has a front-facing and rear camera.

  • FaceTime app – An app for video chat with iPhone and iPad 2 users
  • Camera app – Obviously it’s for shooting photo and video, using either front or rear camera
  • Photo Booth app – Add special effects to the photo taken

On top of that, we have more apps to install on iPad 2 because some apps are specifically developed for iPad 2 to utilize the camera feature.

iPad 2 is running on a dual-core A5 processor and better graphic card chip, which is up to 9x faster than the iPad 1 (running a single-core A4 processor). Therefore, I tested the processing speed in apps loading, web browsing and game playing. Check out the video to see the speed difference yourself. :)

Please feel free to suggest if you have any other ideas or methods or comparison to bring the best out of the iPad 2.

Differences Between iPad 2 vs iPad 1 (Physical Comparison)

Saturday 28 May 2011 @ 4:16 pm

This post is the first part of the comparison series that I will do between iPad 2 and iPad 1. As you have probably known, Apple did some improvements in the design of iPad 2 such as making it lighter, thinner in term of thickness, added built-in front & back camera, etc. Therefore, I think it’s worthwhile to compare both of them.

Apple has also released the measurement figures of iPad 2’s dimension and weight but we don’t see many side-by-side comparison between iPad 2 and iPad 1. So, I took a few photos of both iPads putting side-by-side to give a better picture of how different are they in term of the physical designs.
