The video recording is quite blur and focus is in and out. Very clear stereo speakers. It has A7 chip which came last year. We don’t know why Apple preferred to use A7 chip instead ofA8X chip which is much more faster. At first look we think it is just smaller ipad air 2 but no. It is slower than ipad air 2.But the differences while compared in the hard ware are very minor. But the processor is simply outdated.
