I have the original iPad 2 (TWO) and yesterday I purchased the new iPad 2 (NEW) at our local Apple store. When I got home and set it up I was immediately disappointed when it appeared the whites and blues in the Safari Browser f the NEW seemed to lack contrast compared to the TWO. The text was, of course, clearer on the NEW, but the blues were not a vivid and the whites were not as white as those on the TWO when compared side-by-side. I went to the settings on both iPads and set the brightness to full bright and â€œAuto Brightnessâ€ set to OFF. I compared identical photos and it was hard to tell but it seemed that contrast and vibrancy may be a little worse on the NEW. To give it a better visual test I went to a site where I could view Macbeth Color Checker Charts. I did this with both iPads and did side by side comparisons. I still think the TWO has better vibrancy than the NEW. I also think it is easiest to see when comparing the Safari Browser. I invite anyone who has both to do some similar comparisons to see if their NEW looks better than there TWO. Thanks for any and all who spend this effort. I may go back to the Apple store to discuss this with the Genies.If I do, I will report back.
