Based on 6,560 expert and owner reviews, Apple has excellent ratings for its tablet computers. Apple also has excellent ratings specifically for its A5 processor tablet computers compared to other manufacturers.
Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity
Across all the A5 processor tablet computers that were released around the same time as the iPad Mini the internal storage capacitys range from 4GB to 64GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 29GB. The iPad Mini has one of the larger internal storage capacitys (64 gigabytes) amongst tablets of this age.
We compared this tablet to all the other 64GB internal storage capacity tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad (3rd gen) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The Apple iPad Mini has a fairly big total storage capacity (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the iPad Mini. The smallest total storage capacity of A5 processor tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the iPad Mini is 16GB and the biggest is 64GB.
1080p Video Recording Modes
The iPad Mini has a 1080p video recording modes which is higher than the 720p video recording modes found on most A5 processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as it.
A 1080p video recording modes is in fact the best video recording mode across all tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the iPad Mini.
Across comparable types of tablet the worst video recording mode is 720p.
The thinnest depth of A5 processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Mini is 7.2mm and the thickest is 180mm. At only 7.2 millimeters, the Apple iPad Mini has a quite thin depth compared to most of the other tablets of a similar age and spec to the iPad Mini.
Across all the A5 processor tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the iPad Mini the weights range from 290g to 670g. With a weight of only 308 grams, the iPad Mini is one of the lighter tablets of this type and age amongst tablets of this age.
+1 More reason for
3 Reasons Against
Most A5 processor tablet computers that have been around for more than two years are not 3G. The Apple iPad Mini is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.
Tablets which are 3G that might also be worth considering include the Apple iPad Mini which also has a higher rating.
Like most of the other tablet computers of this spec and age, the iPad Mini is not 4G.
If you are looking for a tablet computer that is 4G then you might also want to look at the iPad Mini, or the iPad Mini (£365.40) both from Apple which is also higher rated.
Quite Small Display Diagonal
The average display diagonal of tablet computers of this age and spec is 8.8". The Apple iPad Mini has a fairly small display diagonal (only 7.9 inches) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Mini.
We compared all the other 7.9" tablets to this tablet and we think the iPad Mini, and the iPad Mini (£365.40) both from Apple which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you want a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad (3rd gen) (9.7") which also has a higher rating.
4 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Mini
Released Over Four Years Ago
Apple released the iPad Mini over four years ago.
Average Processor Frequency
At 1 gigahertz, the iPad Mini has a pretty typical processor frequency compared to most of the other A5 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years.
We compared all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad (2nd gen) is also worth considering.
Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)
At 5 megapixels, the iPad Mini has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablets that have been available for more than two years.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini.
+2 Other reasons
Two Processor Coress
The number of processor coress on the iPad Mini is two. That's average compared to the other 15 tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Mini that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.
There are a number of alternative 2 processor cores tablet computers currently available that you might want to look at including the Apple iPad (2nd gen) which has better reviews.
If you would prefer a tablet computer with more processor coress then you might want to consider the Apple iPad Mini (£499.00) (3 processor coress).
