7 Reasons For

Apple Tablets Have Excellent Reviews

A7 processor tablets built by Apple have excellent ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all tablets (not just A7 processor tablets) and found that Apple also has excellent ratings across its entire range.

4G Compatible

The iPad Mini (3rd gen) is 4G compatible, unlike most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen) which are not 4G compatible.

There are a number of other 4G compatible tablets currently available that you might want to consider including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519359_price] which is cheaper; or the Apple iPad Air[plb_3809771_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a tablet that is 4G compatible then you might want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737207_price].

3G Compatible

The iPad Mini (3rd gen) is 3G compatible. Most of the other A7 processor tablets that were launched more than two years ago are not 3G compatible.

We compared all the other 3G compatible tablets to this tablet and we think the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144811_price] which is cheaper; or the Apple iPad Air[plb_3809771_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Tablet computers which are 3G compatible that might also be worth considering include the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737207_price].

A7 processor tablets that have been available for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen) have internal storage capacity of between 8GB and 130GB.

Chart Edit

Very Big Total Storage Capacity

Across all the A7 processor tablets that have been available for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen) the total storage capacities range from 16GB to 130GB. With a total storage capacity of 128 gigabytes, the iPad Mini (3rd gen)'s total storage capacity is one of the biggest amongst tablet computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Recording Mode

This tablet has a 1080p|720p video recording mode, which is typical of many A7 processor tablets that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of tablets that are a similar age to the iPad Mini (3rd gen) range from 330g to 480g, and the average weight is 390g. With a weight of only 331 grams, the iPad Mini (3rd gen) is fairly light compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been around for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen).

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Screen Size

The smallest screen size of A7 processor tablets that have been available for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen) 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 Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst similar spec tablets of this age.

Other 7.9" tablets currently available which you might also want to consider include the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144809_price], the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519359_price] all from Apple which is cheaper.

If this tablet computer screen size is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_2981411_price] (9.7" and cheaper) or the Apple iPad Air[plb_3809771_price] (9.7" and higher rated).

Put simply the iPad mini 3 demands an extra £80 for TouchID and the option to choose the gold colour finish. That's a significant premium over the iPad mini 2, which is the better buy. If you...

Great size, good screen
TouchID integrated
Amazing display, excellent battery life, fast processor, great 3D graphics, easy to use, app store still number one for quality and variety
Excellent screen and design iOS 88.1 features, including timelapse and Apple Pay Touch ID fingerprint scanner adds convenience
Though we're disappointed by the lack of upgrades
Same as last year, iPad mini 2 offers far better value for money
The addition of TouchID and gold colour option just doesn't seem to justify such a premium over the iPad mini 2
Cameras and processor not improved in line with other iPads
Minimal updates over last model
Relatively pricey

Undeniably attractive design

Good handling
Great finish
Not a compelling value for many buyers, with iPad Mini 2 at 100 less
No improvements whatsoever, except for the addition of TouchID
A reduced weight and a smaller border wouldn't have gone amiss
Holds less appeal than the iPad Mini Retina (iPad Mini 2), and the latter is still available

Still great, now with more storage options and Touch ID
The addition of Touch ID for securing the tablet Apple Pay
Premium design that's solidly constructed
Very snappy with its performance
Continues to take some excellent photos and videos
You should save your cash and get the iPad Mini 2
No notable changes with the hardware
399 cost doesn't seem appropriate given the changes
The display's brightness output is less than the iPad mini 2
Shorter battery life than the iPad mini 2 in our battery benchmark test
