A recent benchmarking of the iPad 2 of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) revealed that the second-generation iPad may be a good buy for consumers who are looking for a reasonably-priced tablet. The benchmark showed that the iPad 2 offers a batter battery life. According to AnandTech, users will have around 16 percent more battery life when they are casually surfing the internet as compared to the older versions of the device.
However it appears that the more significant improvement is noted when the Apple tablet is used for more graphics-intensive functions. According to reports an additional 30 percent of battery life was not whenever games are played on the iPad 2 before it was necessary to recharge the device.
Playing videos would also offer an additional 20 percent of battery life for the latest versions of the iPad 2.
The iPad 2 became a reasonably-priced option for consumers following the release of the new iPad into the market. Despite the release of the new iPad, the previous version of the device was enhanced and the most recent version is the fourth version of the iPad 2 as indicated by its name, the iPad 2.4.
The latest version of the device uses the 32nm version of the A5 processor, which is smaller by 57 percent compare to the original model although it still offers the same power but has a better battery life.
The benchmark showed that the latest version of the iPad 2 offered around 11.7 hours of web browsing, which is better compared to the 10.1 hours that is offered by the older version. The A5 chip on the device is also a bit cooler compared to the previous version. This will likely attract more users who were initially disappointed by reports of an overheating iPad.
The black and brightness level of the latest version of the iPad 2 is also higher based on the benchmarks tests that were made recently.
