When Apple announced the new iPad Air 2 earlier this month, all eyes were on the fact that the tablet now sports 2GB of RAM and the fastest processor chip around. Apple did mention that the tablet’s screen now has an anti-reflective coat, which makes it 50 percent less reflective than the iPad Air. According to DisplayMate, not only is the new tablet even less reflective than that, it is also three times better than any competing tablet on the market in terms of glare.
I can still remember when the iPad first came out. In 2010, Amazon had the leading e-reader on the market. Although the two devices were in separate categories, Amazon kept comparing its e-reader to the iPad. One of the features Amazon touted in its comparison was that users did not experience the reflection glare on the Kindle that iPad owners did, which was true at the time.
