Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple iPad Mini 16GB Wi-Fi (White) (Personal Computers)
Well worth the £207 I paid.
Being a gadget obsessive, I have been through so many tablets. iPad 1, 2, 3, Samsung Galaxy Tab 1, 2, Motorola Xoom, Kindle Fire to name but a few of them.
First of all, let me tell you why this is better (for me) than any of the Android tablets. Just one reason, Apps. All the Apps I use on a daily basis (XBMC remote, banking apps, LightWaveRF, All the synology apps, IP Cam viewers, etc) have much better iOS equivilents. For browsing the internet, watching YouTube and playing the main games, I am pretty sure any tablet would suit you fine, but for the actual quality of apps, iOS wins everytime, and why is that? Because developers make a fortune from iOS, not so much from Android (as it much easier to illegal acquire Android apps), so it would make sense for them to spend more time on their iOS apps.
The mini is just the right size aswell, not quite as small as the Kindle fire (7 inch) and not as big as the massive iPad or Android 10 inchers that are just that too big to hold comfortably.
It is Apple quality so will last forever (unless you drop it!).
The screen is bright and clear, and for most the retina display isn't required.
Take it everywhere with me now, and wouldn't be without.
