According to some latest tests run by PCWorld, in which the new iPad was compared with Android tablets ASUS Eee Transformer Prime and Samsung Galaxy Tab all running under same conditions, it has been revealed that the new iPad actually runs cooler than the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Even with a much bigger battery, the new iPad was found to be running cooler than Galaxy Tab after playing a graphic-intense game for an hour. The tests also confirmed that the new iPad runs only slightly hotter than some Android tablets and that too only when it is charging.
As you can see from the chart above, the new iPad ran between 5 and 7 Fahrenheit degrees hotter than the iPad 2 after playing Riptide GP for an hour while plugged in, and it was as much as 8 degrees hotter than the iPad 2 after playing the game for an hour on battery power alone. That behavior wasn’t consistent across the board, however; on some of our tests, the new iPad, when running on battery power, was as little as 2 degrees warmer than the iPad 2. In general, the new iPad tended to run a bit warmer while charging, but not significantly so.
So if you do use your new iPad to the point where it becomes uncomfortably warm, dial down the display’s brightness for a while or take a short break and give it a chance to cool off a bit. Simple!
