Not the latest táo khuyết tech.Not as easy to hold with a single hand as narrower small-screen tablets.

The táo apple iPad mini 2($299, 16GB) is just a shrunken, original máy tính bảng ipad Air($129.99 at Amazon UK). With a new, lower price, though, it"s become the best inexpensive on-ramp khổng lồ the world of quả táo apps. Think of it as Apple"s lowest-cost laptop, Apple"s netbook, or the true sequel to lớn the somewhat maroonediPod touch. There are a lot of other good small tablets out there, which is why the mini 2 doesn"t quite get our Editors" Choice. (That belongs to lớn the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 ($129.99 at Amazon UK) , with its slimmer toàn thân and better screen.) But if you want all of that Apple phầm mềm goodness, the mini 2 is a terrific balance of price and power.

Editors" Note: This review, originally published on November 14, 2013, was revised to lớn reflect the ipad mini With Retina Display"snew name and price.

The mini is so similar lớn the Air, kiểm tra out our máy tính bảng ipad Air reviews for full details.

The difference between the mini và the Air is really about kích cỡ and price, not weight. I just held both tablets in my hands, & now that the Air is only four ounces more, the weight difference between the two tablets doesn"t feel meaningful.

The mini 2 still has the 4:3 aspect ratio, which makes it compatible with ipad apps, but noticeably thicker—and less usable one-handed—than the competing Samsung Galaxy Tab S and theNvidia Shield Tablet ($129.99 at Amazon UK) . Its metal-and-glass construction is tightly elegant, with a shiny chamfered edge around the corner. The narrow side bezel echoes the máy tính bảng ipad Air"s, and lượt thích the Air, it comes in silver & space gray.

The 7.9-inch, 2,048-by-1,536-pixel IPS LCD cảm ứng screen is bright and sharp. It"s the exact same resolution as the máy tính bảng ipad Air, but in a higher pixel density—324ppi to lớn the Air"s 253, almost the same mật độ trùng lặp từ khóa as the iPhone 5s($129.99 at Amazon UK). All of the screen elements are slightly smaller than they are on the Air, something you notice in productivity apps with lots of tiny screen elements lượt thích iPhoto. They"re still usable, but you need slightly sharper eyes và fingers than you vì chưng on the big iPad.

The mini comes in a dual-band, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi version & a universal cellular version that works with all U.S. Carriers. Every mini is unlocked, even if it comes with a SIM card installed, apple told me. Wi-Fi performance was good, but not quite as good as the ipad tablet Air. Testing against a Meraki MR16($129.99 at Amazon UK)router through a metal door, I saw 13-14Mbps down on the mini but 18-19Mbps down on the Air. Bluetooth 4.0 is also on board; the cellular version, but not the Wi-Fi-only version, has GPS.

Battery life was 6 hours, 8 minutes playing video clip with the screen set khổng lồ max brightness. That"s just about the same as the ipad tablet Air, but far short of the Galaxy Tab S.

Performance & MultimediaThe máy tính bảng ipad mini has a 1.3GHz táo bị cắn A7 processor, the same speed as the iPhone 5s & slightly slower than the Air"s 1.4GHz. It scored slightly slower on the Geekbench & Sunspider benchmarks than the Air did, but matched the Air"s result on the Browsermark browser test & on the GFXBench graphics test. Although all the current, leading android tabletsoutpace the máy tính bảng ipad mini 2 (and for that matter, the mini 3)on processor tests, the iPads" Safari browser showed superior results on the browser tests, and it beat the Editors" Choice Samsung Galaxy Tab S (but not the latest Nvidia & Google tablets) on graphics tests.

There"s no ipad mini version with the much faster A8X processor that you find in the ipad tablet Air 2. Butaccelerometer-based games like Asphalt 8: Airborne & Need for Speed: Most Wanted are actually more playable here than on the Air, because it"s easier to lớn handle & tilt the smaller device. IPhoto và iMovie also work smoothly.

The M7 motion coprocessor also makes an appearance here. Táo bị cắn showed me how diary phầm mềm Day One, for instance, can monitor how much you walk or travel with the máy tính bảng ipad in your bag.

iOS is still asimple grid of icons that is passionately focused on touch. & iCloud remains an important component to lớn the OS, especially for backing up your data.Read our in-depthiOS 8 reviewforthe full details.

The mini"s 5-megapixel main camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera are the same as the original máy tính bảng ipad Air"s. I noticed that when shooting side by side, the big ipad sometimes selected slightly higher ISOs—64 as opposed khổng lồ 50, 500 as opposed to 400—making the big iPad"s photos a little brighter, but just a touch noisier. The HDR mode also still doesn"t vày much; a bright sky will blow out in any image. I"m really splitting hairs here, though. These are very good cameras, for a tablet.

Like the Air, the mini 2 has a pair of bottom-ported speakers. While the speaker grilles are smaller than the Air"s, they generated almost exactly the same volume: 86 or 87 decibels at six inches. Also like on other iPads, if you want khổng lồ play your clip on a TV, you can use a $49 HDMI adapter cable or Apple"s proprietary wireless streaming system, AirPlay.

The mini 2 now only comes in 16 and 32GB models, for $299 và $349. Adding LTE for any of the four major carriers costs $130 extra. Since there"s no memory thẻ slot, you may find 16GB limiting if you tải về even a few movies or large đoạn clip games.

Comparisons and ConclusionsLet"s dispatch the ipad mini 3 ($129.99 at Amazon UK) first. It costs $100 more and all you get out of it is cảm ứng ID. No, we don"t understandit either. But the ipad mini 2 is by far Apple"s best tablet value at the moment—all the iPad phầm mềm goodness you want, at a price $100 lower than most iPads usually cost.

That makes the ipad tablet mini competitive with small-scale android tablets as well. And it puts me in the unusual position of recommending amoreexpensive apk tablet as our Editors" Choice, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4. I"m just so entranced by the Galaxy Tab"s vibrant screen and expandability that I think it"s worth the extra C-note.

At the $299 level, I can"t think of anything else that quite matches this tablet right now. The mini 2"s vị trí cao nhất Android-powered competitor is probably Nvidia"s Shield Tablet,which has a powerful processor, but falls way behind the mini on trò chơi availability, screen quality and build quality. If you"re interested primarily in productivity, take a close look at the hãng asus VivoTab cảnh báo 8 ($129.99 at Amazon UK) , which runs real Microsoft Windows, with all of its pro apps & all of its complexity và virus-susceptibility.

Our favorite táo tablet is still the máy tính bảng ipad Air 2 ($129.99 at Amazon UK) , which has the newer A8X processor for the best possible graphics & gaming experience. But if you find yourself with $300 in your pocket và you want to lớn get in on the iOS app universe, the ipad tablet mini 2 is a terrific buy.
