    Recorded Video Shows More Than What Was On Screen

    Yeah, I noticed that. Whilst in camera mode, if you switch between photo and video recording mode you can clearly see that the screen image zooms in a few levels when video is selected. Which, as you say, doesn't 'fully' reflect what you're actually capturing on the screen. It's not a big...

    What kind of speeds with LTE?

    OK, all you guys in Canada and the states, try not to laugh too loudly! Here's my results in Scotland UK, using the provider Three (3). No LTE, just 3G services for us on this model iPad. Thought I'd put a smile on your face...lol In use, both download and upload speeds are a little...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    No, only dead pixels, never had any other issues. All the displays I had were very white. The final one I have with the good screen is also very white, so no issues for me now....at last!!!!

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    OK, perhaps I over-reacted a little having received my third iPad with dead pixels! Just as a quick update, my issues have been completely resolved and I am back to having a big smile on my face. After getting the 3rd bad screen, I called Apple again and they suggested that I took it to my...

    OK - this is my final post on this thread - 3rd replacement ipad delivered & tested - DEAD PIXELS!!! - gutted, and completely finished with iPad I'm afraid.

    Since purchasing my new iPad, I have also noticed a significant increase in Global Warming... ...however, 3G seems to be working OK!

    Bad camera, 2nd broken ipad in one week!?

    Perhaps the pics you provided are not a great example, because the results look fairly typical of the hardware specs of each camera to me. The front-facing camera is standard VGA and designed for low resolution use, i.e. FaceTime etc. I'm not seeing where your issue is from the examples you...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    I'll let Apple worry about their resources - All I know is that I'm paying Apple top dollar and I'm certainly happy to pay for quality.

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Yeah! feel your pain - Although, at least you got it swapped out in-store quickly for a good one. I ordered my one online from Apple Store as I don't have a local store. It's been like a postal lottery waiting for each new unit to be delivered. So we'll see what tomorrow brings huh? :)

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Thank you sir! Yeah I'm really loving this new iPad; the text on web sites and documents is just SO clear - I'm definately feeling a lot less eye-strain on this display when reading for long periods - fingers crossed for tomorrow. If this one has dead pixels; you'll simply hear a single gun...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Woohoo! Just got an SMS from Apple Store saying that my replacement ipad 3 will be delivered tomorrow! This will be my 3rd attempt at finding a pixel perfect display! Even though I've still got the other 2 ipads sitting here to be returned and I have been playing with them non-stop; I'm still...

    Major back light leak on my new iPad

    Don't you just hate it when you look under a skirt to check if a girl has shaved all of her legs and you notice that she's got a bad dose of light leak and dead pixels! I mean, you wouldn't want to take that kind of girl home to meet your mother would you? :D

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Just received an email from Apple to say that my second replacement iPad is being shipped in 1-3 days priority post. I want to believe this will be 'the one' with zero dead pixels, but for obvious reasons I'm not feeling confident. I hope I get a pleasant surprise. Buying a new product...

    Ur first day experience getting an iPad

    Brief summary of my new ipad experience: New ipad delivered on Launch day - very excited as I opened it and switched it on - Dumb-struck at the definition on the new screen - plugged in to charge and sync, loaded Sketchpad Pro (the main app I use). Wiped away some dust off display, it won't...

Removing earphones during movie playback - No Issues (Movie Pauses and can be resumed by hitting play button). Adjusting volume up or down (using earphone...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Lol...6 returns, that does suck dude! Yeah, the irony here is that the iPad 2 I sold was only a few months old and it was absolutely PERFECT. The only reason I upgraded to the new one was the retina display. I'm just wondering if there is actually such a thing as a retina display without...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Hey Dan, welcome to the new iPad 'Dead Pixel Society'... ... start by asking yourself if you're prepared to accept the defect - if the answer is yes - enjoy your iPad. If you can't accept it, then get that sucker replaced by calling 0800 048 0408 - Apple will be very cool about it - take it...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Be careful the forum 'Quality Control' police are watching us and I think I can hear them coming.... ....run away!!! (joking there!) Just as a little update for you guys; I had my replacement iPad delivered today, at least 2 dead pixels on this new one also :thumbsdown: (very visible to...

    Incredibooth retina display version

    Turn the dial at the bottom (the one that's round the big red button) and each of the numbers gives you a different effect, simples! Also, go right back to the main screen and swipe left or right between the other booths to use your other purchased effects.

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Yeah, Just to confirm, my dead pixels appear as black dots on a light screen. They don't do anything other than stay dark when there's a light screen.

    Pesimistic/paranoid new iPad owners or Trolls???

    That's an interesting take on things certainly. I can only speak for myself here... ...whenever I order anything with an LCD display I AM paranoid that I don't get a defective one as the screen is the bit you're actually going to be staring at all the time. I didn't even notice 3 bad pixels...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    LOL... ...I once worked near a Fire Station, but please don't call me if you have a fire OK! I'll just state again, for the record, that Apple QA didn't do a very good QA job on inspecting either my new iPad or the others who have reported screen defects and needed to return their new iPad...

    Its official, some new iPads have problems

    Just for completeness, we may as well add the 'Dead Pixel' screen defect to your summary of issues. There have been a whole batch of reports on this and various other forums. I admit this is not a new problem as far as LCD devices go, but it's definately one that has caused some concern for a...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    I agree, the issue is clear to see - that's a weird one though, looks liked ghosted characters. If a hardware reset doesn't work on that - I'd send it straight back!

    4 bad iPads. Dust and dead pixels on new iPad

    This. I think the dead pixel thing is becoming an issue for a few people now - I got a call from the courier today, they will be uplifting my 64gb 4G iPad with at least 3 dead pixels and the girl there said they had been super busy dealing with returns/replacements. Apple are sending me a new...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Yeah, agree, Apple are pretty cool that way. Although you do hear the odd horror story, albeit I think it's quite rare with Apple. I've heard different reports about how many dead pixels Apple consider to be a defective unit with LCD products, not sure if anyone can confirm for IOS products...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Hi Tristan, no not at all. I think Apple's after care is exceptional, but I have heard of people reporting an issue after using their product for a period of time into the product lifecycle and if a problem is reported Apple may replace with a refurb. I always tend to check any new product over...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    lol...ok let's allow this particular point to dissipate now, I questioned the quality control on my one and the 'few' others who have defective screens, I'm not sure why you are having difficulty with this concept. :thumbs:

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Apple do have an excellent policy for dead pixels (and most things actually), but before we get to that level - there's the 14 day 'no-questions' distance selling legislation for any internet purchases (within Europe anyway, not sure for US?). Within these 14 days, a buyer doesn't need to...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Hi, customer satisfaction and build quality are two completely separate metrics - I see on some forums that guys are taking back defective apple products 4 or 5 times before they get an acceptable one. In this case the guy is probably unhappy with build quality but delighted with service levels...

    iPad 3 display issue

    Hi Tristan, I did a little bit of digging around on other forums re new ipad faults etc., don't remember seeing anyone reporting your specific problem. I also love this 3rd gen ipad, but I'm afraid that unless I get a perfect unit in exchange for my 660 perfect pounds (£ UK) that I paid, then...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Thanks AQ, not getting off on anything except raw facts. I have a defective screen and a 'Few' others seem to be reporting this same issue. I don't disagree that there will be a fault tolerance ratio, that in the grand scheme of things is probably low. However, I stand by my original comment...

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Thanks geo, yeah I did the same. Briefly considered living with it, then also considered if it will affect my sell-on price when ipad 4 comes out... Anyway here's a link to the thread I mentioned above: - New iPad problems (dead pixels, overheating, scratched etc) - MacRumors Forums
