Design

If you have used the tablet before or any iPad for that matter, the design is not something which will attract your attention. iPad Pro 10.5 has tradition iPad design, the same rounded metallic case with an Apple logo, however, the cut for the antenna has been removed. Now it looks more appealing. It weighs 469 Grams, Exceedingly light to handle. iPad Pro 10.5 is very sleek, even after attaching the smart keyboard, it does not bother you with its presence in your executive bag.

Edges of the camera are slightly embossed, may irk you a little bit, the camera is located on the top right corner, this has given the designer more space to amplify the sound of speakers after all Apple does not compromise with the quality of the product.

Overall, the design is doing justice to the standard of Apple. It feels really good while holding the device in hand, TouchID is within reach irrespective of the orientation of the device. You Can use it safely at the pool or during the bath. However, iPad Pro 10.5 is not enabled with waterproof safety, you be careful as you may get into trouble if it is accidentally plunged into wet things.

Display

iPad Pro 10.5 has a 10.5-inch screen with 78.3% body to screen ratio, this is the best screen I have seen on any tablet, it has extent color range, extremely good brightness, and sharpness. The screen is enabled with True-tone display, Scratch-resistant glass, and oleophobic coating. Capacitive touch screen with LED-backlit IPS LCD gives an excellent experience while working with touch. Apple has put great efforts in the screen, you will realize with your very first touch on the screen, it works very swiftly. We can say this is the best you can get on a tablet.

Apple has given 1668 x 2224 pixels in this tables which are a very good move by apple as it was required with the large screen size of the tablet. The display is capable of going even brighter than on previous tablets, heading up to 600 nits which enable the tablet to play HDR videos, however, stream content from YouTube hasn’t given the full HDR effect, and HDR-capable video files won’t copy across to the iPad. In short, it’s not easy to access HDR content yet, so one of the selling points of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro isn’t fully accessible

The ProMotion display technology is something which makes iPad Pro 10.5 exceptional, during the launch Apple emphasis on this technology. The ProMotion technology makes screen smart enough to switch the frame rate according to the action you are perming, for example, if you are scrolling through web pages it will give you 120 fps but if you watching still images the frame rates drop which preserves the battery. The dynamic refresh rate is there to save battery as much as anything. We found the animations are clearer while swapping through screens.

True-tone display is another feature with makes this tablet special, it changes the display according to the lighting conditions around you, so the screen will look different when using it by lamplight and outdoors.

Which provide 6-7 hours backup if you use it constantly, we saw the consumption of battery was more while using the internet on Safari as compared to using it as the word processor.

So the performance of battery varies according to the user. However, 6-7 hours of back up is good if you are using it in place of your laptop.
