Review Apple iPad Mini Retina Tablet

6 December 2013
  • Summary: Small device, giant resolution. The new version of the little iPad now has a Retina display, but it is also thicker than its predecessor. Apple also bestowed their 64-bit A7 processor on the little tyke, so it is on equal footing with its big brother. Or is it…?
  • Pros: Bright, high-contrast display, Good touchscreen, Lightning-fast SoC, Excellent battery life, First class manufacturing, Good browser performance, Great speakers..., Such a high resolution display is unique in a device of this size, and subjectively it's a very attractive feature.
  • Cons: ...that are poorly positioned, No current data transfer standards, Limited color space coverage, Poor color accuracy, Somewhat heavier and thicker than its predecessor, Expensive, A larger array of connections, Flash support and expandable storage.
