5 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

On average Apple A7 processor tablets have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all tablet computers produced by Apple.

4G Compatible

The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) is 4G compatible, unlike most of the other A7 processor tablets that were released around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen) which are not 4G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] both from Apple.

3G Compatible

The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other A7 processor tablets that are a comparable age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are not 3G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 3G compatible that might be worth considering include the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144811_price].

This tablet has a 1080p|720p video recording mode, which is the most commonly found video recording mode on A7 processor tablets that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Short

With a height of only 200 millimeters, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) is one of the shorter A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) amongst A7 processor tablets of this age. Across all the tablet computers that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 8.5mm to 240mm.

3 Reasons Against

£74.00 Price Increase

In the last 55 days the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has increased in price by £74.00.

Very Small Screen Size

The smallest screen size of tablets that came out more than two years ago is 7.8", the largest is 9.7", and the average screen size is 8.6". With a screen size of only 7.9 inches, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a quite small screen size compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 7.9" tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a tablet with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_2981411_price] (9.7").

Average Processor Clock Speed

The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly typical processor clock speed (1.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other tablets of a similar age and type to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly typical rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers of this type and age.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

With an internal storage capacity of 16 gigabytes, the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price] (32GB), the iPad Air[pl_2981411_price] (32GB), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] (64GB) all from Apple.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price].
