Simply, it has all the qualities we want to find in a successive device, as it’s both thinner (0.34”) in frame and lighter (10.55 oz) in weight to make it even easier to grasp with a single hand.

Even now, the 9.7-inch Retina display on the iPad 4 is a marvelous thing to behold – mainly because it’s super detailed thanks to its 2048 x 1536 resolution, which puts up an admirable pixel density of 264 ppi.

For the sake of that 0.5 ... you could buy two Android devices and still have change. You would also never need to put up with selective OS updates that destroy your entire app gallery with limited backward compatibility and features that were released on other devices the year before.
This doesn't take into account that Android is a far superior OS
