Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablet Computers
Apple has excellent average ratings for its A7 processor tablet computers as well as across its entire tablet range compared to other brands.
1080p Video Recording Mode
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a higher video recording mode than most A7 processor tablet computers that came out more than two years ago. This Apple tablet computer has a 1080p video recording mode, whereas most tablets that have been available for a similar time to it have a 720p video recording mode.
A 1080p video recording mode is in fact the best video recording mode amongst all tablets of a similar type and age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
A 720p video recording mode is the worst video recording mode across comparable types of tablet computer.
2 Reasons Against
Not 3G Compatible
Most A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are not 3G compatible. The iPad Mini (2nd gen) is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.
If you would prefer a tablet that is 3G compatible then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) (£270.00) which also has a higher rating.
Not 4G Compatible
The iPad Mini (2nd gen) is not 4G compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are also not 4G compatible.
If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) (£270.00).
6 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)
Released Over Two Years Ago
Apple released the iPad Mini (2nd gen) over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablets that have been available for more than two years.
We compared this tablet to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper; or the iPad Mini (2nd gen) (£270.00), and the iPad Air (£513.00) both from Apple which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Average Internal Storage Capacity
The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a relatively standard internal storage capacity (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.
If this A7 processor tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Apple iPad Air (£513.00) (128GB) which also has a higher rating.
+4 Other reasons
Average Rear Camera Resolution
The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly standard rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper; or the iPad Mini (2nd gen) (£270.00), or the iPad Air (£513.00) both from Apple which has a better Rating.
Two Processor Cores
Compared to the other 22 A7 processor tablet computers that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed the number of processor cores of, the number of processor cores on the iPad Mini (2nd gen) is two which is average.
Alternative 2 processor core tablets currently available that you might want to consider include the Apple iPad Air (£513.00) which has a better Rating.
If this A7 processor tablet has too few processor cores then you might want to consider the HP Slate 8 (4 processor cores).
Average Screen Size
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly average screen size (7.9 inches) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that are a similar age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
Tablet computers with a larger screen size that might be worth considering include the iPad Air (£225.00) (9.7"), or the iPad Air (£513.00) (9.7") both from Apple which also has a higher Rating.

After the fanfare that heralded the new iPad Air, Apple was rather less effusive about the new, upgraded edition of its compact tablet ? the iPad mini with Retina display. Yet, while it shares the... Read more…
Finally, a small formfactor iPad with Retina display Unmatched build quality
Fast 7 processor for a firstclass experience
Pretty light and thin by today's standards, very powerful hardware, excellent screen, excellent audio, pretty good camera, games look fantastic, all the productivity you need with associated apps, And
Smooth, fast performance
Display is slightly less bright than the iPad Air
Colors look washed out when compared to iPad Air and iPhone 5 5c
Are all things we can live with, without regretting the purchase, that's why this is a very solid slate
The iPad Mini Retina gets from us a 9.6 out of 10 for design, a 9.7 for hardware and a 9.5 out of 10 for OS and UI
And then the big story: Same screen.Oh, it's smaller, all right: 7.9 inches diagonal instead of the iPad Air's 9.7. But it's exactly the same number of pixels, smaller and packed in closer... Read more…

Hasn't given me any weird problems
These are all pretty minor
Okay BIOS, a bit confusing for overclocking(I have never overclocked before, just kinda messing around
The back panelshield was slightly annoying(very minor
The box makes it look cheesy. (Again, very minor. Just want Gigabyte to change that on their new boxes
I overclocked my 3.5GHz FX 6300 to 3.8 or 3.9GHz, and my computer would have to boot a few times before it actually started properly
I am still learning about all the facilities on this I-Pad but very useful, especially when my husband is using our main home computer! It is also just the right size to fit my handbag so can... Read more…
Easy To Customize
Has so Many things to do
It was very good when it worked
It discharges fast
Stopped working. .. wouldn't do anything
I sent it in to Gigabyte assuming they would repair it or send a replacement. They sent it back about three weeks later, without any explanation of the problem
I assumed it was fixed, but after reinstalling the machine again it powers the fans, but won't boot up
Now I am stuck with a dead mother board. I've been without a computer for a month. Thanks Gigabyte. Or is Gigabad
When the iPad first came out I wasn't convinced of its usefulness, but the mini is great.
I can do all my office work on the go. A great bit of kit

Home button has always problem
Can't be used as a cell phone should be able to
Does Not Have Instruction
I had some issues installing Debian Testing on this board, I ended up installing through UEFI, had to disable IOMMU in bios or mouse and keyboard wouldn't work during OS install
Another issue I had with the motherboard is VIA V 805 USB 3 controller chip, and I suspect it's the same issue other people reporting in Windows -- system freezes when trying to send bulk data over US
GNSSGUY would recommend the Apple iPad Mini 2 (Verified Purchase)
The iPad mini other than its size has all the features of its larger sized counterpart. The features differentiating the two are not worth the price to pay for the larger version. Again it depends... Read more…
