5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Apple is one of the leading tablet brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Apple also has excellent ratings for its A7 processor tablets.

4G Compatible

The Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) is 4G compatible. Most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for a comparable time to the iPad Mini (3rd gen) are not 4G compatible.

We compared all the other 4G compatible tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144811_price], and the iPad Mini (2nd gen)[pl_2144809_price] both from Apple which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519391_price].

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

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
Highquality display
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
The final grade is a 9.6 out of 10
