The overall design of the iPad Pro 10.5 is exactly the same as the Apple Ipad Air 2 and Pro 9.7, which of course still has the features of the Pro series: four external speakers and the Smart Connector port on the left side to attach the keyboard.
On the feel of the handle, it is almost no different from Air 2 and Pro 9.7, the lengths of the edges and their weights are slightly but negligible. Feeling heavy, must use with two hands. These characteristics have existed for many generations of the iPad, but the reality is that users are used to that feeling.
However, when you use the Smart Keyboard, the down-point-to-accept that becomes meaningless because the keyboard helps the iPad stand on the table as a mini laptop. You do not have to hold your iPad while using it anymore.
On design, the iPad Pro 10.5 + keyboard breaks your MacBook Pro in terms of compactness, lightness, mobility.
The 120 Hz screen, True Tone function, P3 color profile are the three most valuable features of the iPad Pro 10.5.
The 120 Hz screen. This is the highest scan frequency currently on the tablet. It makes every movement in the iPad interface is significantly more smooth than other tablets. From scrolling lists, scrolling web pages to closing apps and switching apps, you’ll easily see the difference with previous iPad models.
The 120 Hz screen feels more pleasurable and everything becomes faster than normal. Apple says the iPad Pro 10.5 has an additional chip that manages the 120 Hz frequency sweep. When using high-frequency scanning tasks such as still images, movies, text, etc., the machine automatically reduces the scan frequency to the appropriate levels to save battery power. In fact, I almost do not notice the difference every time the machine reduces the scan frequency. Smooth feeling is always kept stable throughout the process of using the machine.
The True Tone feature automatically adjusts the brightness and white balance of the screen based on the light of the environment. The goal is to help the eye ache by reducing the amount of blue light. True Tone is different from Night Shift. Night Shift always makes the colors warmer, the screen is golden, and the eyes are tired. True Tone is always adjusted according to the environment. True Tone can be seen as a more advanced Night Shift. It automatically keeps the quality of the display in the sun or when it is bright enough, while in the dark, the screen itself turns to warm yellow tones, much like Night Shift. I personally do not turn on True Tone because I often view photos and edit pictures on my iPad.
P3 (DCI-P3) is a high-end color profile, which represents more colors than sRGB. P3 will be useful for editing images and video in RAW format. Then iPad Pro 10.5 will show a wider color gamut than non-P3 players.
About the screen element, I did not feel it inferior MacBook Pro. The reason is that it still helps me do a lot of computer work without causing the feeling of inhibition. The display quality remains very high, the color accuracy is almost absolute, the screen size is large enough to edit the image in detail and comfort. So at the screen factor, I evaluate two machines equally.
Of course, the MacBook Pro can not be equal to the iPad Pro 10.5. Firstly, the iPad has a camera. Secondly, that camera is also the camera of the Apple iPhone 7 so I do not feel shy about its image quality.
The camera makes communication work considerably faster than using a computer. For example, I am chatting with my friends and want to send a photo of a nice item to them. Instead of having to switch to pick up the phone and take a picture, then just take the iPad and take it. The image quality is comparable to that of the iPhone 7.

Conclusion: On the camera element, the iPad Pro 10.5 breaks the MacBook Pro.
- EXPRESS – SOFTWARE
Since I bought the iPad Pro 10.5, I was on iOS 11 right away because iOS 11 is the new ability to turn iPad Pro 10.5 into a “MacBook mini”. It has a dock that contains an app underneath the exact same macOS, which has the same Cmd + Tab interface as macOS so it feels almost identical to the MacBook Pro computer.
Another feature that I like very much is that it runs two apps at the same time on the iPad. This feature is not new, I have long used on the previous Galaxy Note (both phone and tablet) of Samsung and OnePlus 5. But the fact that it says those machines are only for fun but I almost never use. Now thanks to the Smart Keyboard to help me work on more iPad, running two app at the same time has become more useful than ever.
The two Split View and Split Over features on the iPad Pro 10.5 will split the screen into two sections (left / right) to run two different app, allowing for resizing on each side. Due to this feature that I rarely come back Home, less to transfer the app. For example one side of window opens the mindmap to draw a plan, one side of window open the Messenger to chat for comments from colleagues. Or one side to the browser compose the event content, one side to Calendar to see the date. At the moment, when feeling inconvenient to transfer music in Apple Music takes too much work (transfer app, press transfer button), I think right drag the Apple Music window to the right of the screen Let it lie there for faster transfer.
Another app I like is Files, which access all the files that are in iCloud Drive. And because all the data outside the Desktop of MacBook Pro is also uploaded to iCloud Drive from the iPad, I will also access all the files of MacBook Pro, I have to transfer files between two machines. I have Google Drive and it also appears in the Files software.
On the software and interface elements, it’s hard to say that the iPad Pro 10.5 is more or less than the MacBook Pro, but the iPad Pro 10.5 is still praiseworthy because, as I emphasized at the beginning of this article, it helps to solve ~ 90% of the workload. Every day, so here I evaluate two machines equally.
This is the only weakness of the iPad Pro 10.5 compared to MacBook Pro. Although my MacBook Pro only uses USB-C ports, buying a C-to-A adapter or using a C-to-C accessory is easy, easy, and has many options. Also to buy accessories or adapters using the port Lightning of the iPad is more difficult because rare product, high price.
On this factor, the iPad Pro inferior MacBook Pro.
where can you get a Apple iPad Pro 10.5 online
This part of the performance itself evaluates and compares the factors: speed of running the app, its speed of operation, the level of completion of work.
Speed up the app
iPad Pro 10.5 with A10X chip and 4 GB of RAM runs extremely smoothly on iOS 11 (beta). All app load faster than when using Apple iPad Air 2. Even some app load faster than MacBook Pro because the app on the iPad does not have a Welcome screen or do not have to load a load of plugins like Photoshop on macOS. Just touch the screen is open app always, very fast. The speed inside the app has nothing to complain about, at least with the ones I mentioned at the beginning of this article, every app is running well, and the response speed inside the app is fast.
iPad Pro 10.5 has a huge advantage of touch screen. It helps you open the app faster on the computer. For the app can not see immediately or I do not remember in any folder, I will open the Spotlight to find. iPad Pro 10.5 allows to open Spotlight just like Spotlight on macOS with Cmd + Space. In addition to finding the app name and all sorts of data available on the machine, Spotlight on iPad also lets you type mathematical operations to compute the result.
In addition, running two apps at the same time also greatly speed up your operation.
Degree of completion of work
This is an extremely important factor when it comes to the level of “job” of iPad Pro 10.5, especially when I want to use it instead of MacBook Pro. I still need MacBook Pro to handle 10% of the unfinished work of the iPad Pro 10.5. For example, use Photoshop on MacBook Pro for rendering, running Content-Aware, adjusting specific layers in pixels, or using iMovie for layer editing, noise reduction, and video dubbing. The problem of the remaining 10% is not due to weak configuration but because iPad does not have the equivalent app. If I find the app has the same function as the MacBook Pro, then I do not need to use MacBook Pro anymore.
I use the iPad Pro 10.5 every day, the screen brightness to Auto but it is always at 100% brightness because I often sit outside the sunny garden. My iPad has 3 Gmail, 1 FB, 1 Messenger, always with Smart Keyboard, always connected to AirPods via Bluetooth. Continuously spent between 7 am to 3 pm is running out of battery power, which is about 8 hours of continuous use with 100% brightness. Pin MacBook Pro 15 inch 2016 Touch Bar has never been used before.
Although iPad battery is not enough to spend a day as above, but I’m not too worried because only a lightning thread and USB port can recharge immediately for iPad, or use the backup battery is still OK. Just carrying a 10,000 mAh battery is enough to recharge your iPad Pro 10.5. For MacBook Pro, you either have to bring your 87W charger with you, or you have to use a genuine mobile charger that has both fast and low power delivery capacity.
