3 Reasons For
Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablets
Apple A7 processor tablet computers have excellent ratings on average and across all tablet computers Apple is one of the leading manufacturers.
1080p Video Recording Modes
This tablet computer has a 1080p|720p video recording modes, which is typical of many similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to it.
With a weight of only 331 grams, the iPad Mini (3rd gen) is fairly light compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and type to the iPad Mini (3rd gen). Across all the tablets of a comparable age and type to the iPad Mini (3rd gen) the weights range from 330g to 480g.
2 Reasons Against
The Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) is not 3G, although keep in mind that most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen) are also not 3G.
Very Small Display Diagonal
The Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) has a quite small display diagonal (only 7.9 inches) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been available for more than two years. A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago have display diagonals of between 7.8" and 9.7".
If this Apple tablet display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_2981411_price] (9.7").
5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Apple released the iPad Mini (3rd gen).
Average Processor Frequency
At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Mini (3rd gen) has a pretty typical processor frequency compared to most of the other tablets that were launched more than two years ago.
There are a number of other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price].
Average Internal Storage Capacity
With an internal storage capacity of 64 gigabytes, the iPad Mini (3rd gen) has a fairly typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been around for more than two years.
If this Apple tablet computer internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519391_price] (128GB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)
At 5 megapixels, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) has a relatively average rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Mini (3rd gen).
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews.
Two Processor Coress
Compared to the other 25 tablets of a similar type and age to the iPad Mini (3rd gen) that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the iPad Mini (3rd gen) has two processor coress which is average.
We compared all the other 2 processor cores tablet computers to this tablet and we think the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
