In our time using both tablets, we find battery life on the iPad to be longer than its competitor in the XYBOARD. Honestly though, we still find ourselves having to charge them nightly after heavy usage throughout the day – so it doesn’t matter as much. On the opposite end of the spectrum, light users will find the iPad delivering longer charges thanks to its beefier 11,560 mAh battery.


Frankly, the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is a respectable tablet within the Android sphere, even more when it packs additional goodies such as an IR blaster and stylus, but when it’s pitted against the newly available iPad, its cost is by far its kryptonite. Consider this, that the iPad rocks a starting price point of $630 for the base 16GB LTE model, which is less than the full $700 outright cost of the comparable 16GB LTE version of the XYBOARD 10.1. The more we think about it, they both have their standout features, but when first impressions make all the difference, the iPad has the distinctive advantage in capturing our attention from afar.
