This A7 processor tablet computer was released over three years ago.
Average Processor Frequency
At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a pretty standard processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers of this spec and age.
We compared all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] is also worth considering.
Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)
The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a pretty average rear camera resolution (numeric) (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablet computers of this type and age.
We compared all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers to this tablet and we think the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
+3 Other reasons
Two Processor Coress
Compared to the other 25 tablets that came out more than two years ago that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) is a two processor cores tablet which is average.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2 processor cores tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the iPad Air[pl_1737198_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_1847201_price] both from Apple.
Average Display Diagonal
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a relatively average display diagonal (7.9 inches) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
Alternative 7.9" tablets currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price].
If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_2034560_price] (9.7").

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…
