The Ipad mini with retina display, also known as the ipad 2, is a brilliant tablet. It is slightly old now as the 4th generation is out but this means it can be picked up at a bargin price. It has the same specs as the Ipad mini 3 except it has no finger print scanner and is available in less colors. The ipad mini feels fast and nippy when doing basic tasks such as email or web browsing and performs well with more demanding tasks such as Gaming or Video streaming. The appstore is available to all IOS devices and offers a wide range of free and paid for apps to customize you ipad. The boot times are fast and the controls feels solid. I previously owned a Nexus 7 and i can say that the sound quality from the speakers of the Ipad is much better and the build quality is second to none. I am really pleased with this purchase and would recommend this product, if you found this review helpful then please mark it so :)

By Antoine HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 16 May 2014
It is incredible how the iPad has revolutionised the computer industry in just under 4 years, triggering the tablet era.

The latest iPad Mini is just a smaller version of the iPad Air, and as such sports the same processor and options offered on its bigger brother.


Now does the iPad Mini really live up to the marketing hype?

A quick answer is "Yes", thanks to new zippy 64 bit A7 processor, lovely "Retina display" screen and portability!
And what makes this the best tablet to date are the apps, which have been optimized to take full advantage of the powerful 64bit processor. As an example: If you have a 64bit operating system but 32bit software than the performance increase is negligible.

Apps available for the iPad are generally of a very high standard and virtually virus free. There are various reasons for this:
○ iPad is also targeted for professional environments
○ Stable and reliable iOS platform
○ Applications are only available through the App Store, thus guaranteeing income to the developer
○ Other platforms have new tablets springing every other day, sporting different screen sizes and processors


✓ Blazing fast, low consumption A7 (64bit) processor
✓ Premium build quality sporting ever so stylish looks thanks to the precision engineered aluminium housing
✓ Retina display. Great colour saturation producing stunning images
✓ Super lightweight, WiFi version 331grams and WiFi+Cellular version 341grams
✓ Vast choice of apps which can mimic laptop/desktop programs
✓ iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote available for free
✓ Awesome battery life.

Bought an iPad to replace an old iPod touch. This tablet is designed beautifully and feels really thin and light it can be held with one hand. Apps loads really fast, browsing is seamless. Fast access to open games and app store. The screen is stunning, the amount of detail from the retina display is incredible. I would recommend the retina version, because it has the faster processor and retina screen. Was thinking about buying the first one but decided to pay a bit extra for this model and I am not disappointed.

Superb Tablet!

The iPad mini 2 (Retina display) blew me away in almost every category. It was by far the best purchase I'd ever made.


At first I was quite sceptical about the size of the iPad mini, I thought it would be too small to watch videos and too small for browsing the web. Well, my gosh was I wrong! The tablet is perfectly sized (in my opinion) and is perfect for travelling. The tablet is very light so it's great for reading at night and holding the tablet one-handed. The great thing about the size, is that there are only small bezels around the sides of the iPad, this makes a really immersive experience when watching videos. The iPad is also extremely thin which is also great for travelling and makes the whole iPad feel lighter. Overall, Apple did a superb job in the portability side of things and you won't be disappointed.

Battery Life:

When I first saw how thin the iPad mini was, I thought this would be yet another tablet that has had the battery life sacrificed for looks but in actual fact, it both looks good and has great battery life! In my testing I got around 9 hours with heavy use of watching videos, web browsing and listening to music. Please note though, listening to music draines your battery extremely quickly, even more so that watching full HD videos! I'm not sure why this is as watching videos requires powering the pixels of the screen and the speakers, compared to music only requiring speaker use. However it still lasted around 8.5 hours of listening to music so you've got absolutely nothing to worry about.

Screen Quality:

I, and I'm sure many others, didn't really think anything of the 'retina display' I just thought it would be a good quality 1080p (Full HD) screen.

Ok, so I've only really used Android for tablets before, this was my first attempt to try IOS. I will say it took a little while getting used to, for me as a developer I wasn't expecting that you don't have a file system to access like with Android, but instead it's typical to use apple iTunes to transfer files across - similar to an iPod.

The tablet is great though, I must admit. It cost a little more than a typical Android tablet, but not much. But with it you get an amazing hi-res screen at 2048 x 1536. It's pin-sharp and you can't see any anti-aliasing or pixels at all - plus webpages display fully and readable. The addition of the more 4:3 type display as apposed to the normal Android 16:9 actually makes the tablet feel bigger. The last 7" tablet I had was a Nexus 7, this is the same approximate height, but wider. I've just returned a faulty Lenovo tab 2 10", and the iPad mini 2 doesn't feel much smaller weirdly.

It also feels really snappy, no obvious slowdown. The battery is also really good and lasts a long time and the Camera ain't too bad either in good light.

The only moan I could levy at it was that all new apple gear (phones, tablets, Macbooks etc) should come with free extra software, titles currently are Keynote, Garageband, Pages, Numbers and iMovie. When starting the tablet it offered an update to IOS 9, but didn't offer the said software free as I was informed it might.

In the end I had to go onto apple Support chat to sort it out. They were friendly and eventually (after about an hour back and forth) they gave me redeem codes for the missing software.

They had no idea why I didn't get the software listed as free, but anyway it's sorted.

So if you're looking to make a change, then for the price now is your chance - if you're a Android veteran prepare for a day or so to get used to things. Good buy.
