The editors didn't like

  • Multi-tasking devices – is that always best served all dressed up in your Sunday best? We do feel like we have to smother its waif-like aluminium in a chunky cas
  • The 16GB option is still too small for Retina HD apps
  • As they'll munch through your capacity in no time at all
  • Add to that the increased space a 64-bit app will take and if you're thinking of nabbing a load of high-power apps (which you should want to
