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.

Chart Edit

Very Light

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.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Not 3G

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.

Chart Edit

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).

Read more Less Chart Edit

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.

Read more Less Chart Edit

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.

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
Touch ID fingerprintsensing authentication
Carrierswitchable SIM on cellularcapable models
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

For en gangs skyld har Apple skutt seg selv i foten. Den ?nye? Minien har bare fått en fingeravtrykkleser og en ny farge. Ellers er det akkurat likt forrige års modell. Og det har man senket...

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
