Apple iPad Mini 2 (2013)
- Retina displa
- Fast processor
- Great battery life
- Compact design
- No Touch ID fingerprint sensor
- Pricier than competitors
While there are some strong Android competitors, the iPad mini 2, now available at a lower price, is the best value iPad thanks to its great screen, stable performance and robust design.
The Apple iPad Mini is a bestselling 2013 7-inch tablet that received positive reviews for a gorgeous high-resolution retina display, a blazing fast A7 processor, a storage upgrade option up to 128GB, Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, great battery life and a compact design. Some reviewers felt the base price to be very expensive relative to the competition and wanted the Mini to come with a touch ID fingerprint sensor like on the iPhone 5s. For buyers who need tablet just for e-books, web browsing and video playbacks, there are plenty of other cheaper tablets but for those who want more in terms of power, performance and stunning visuals, the iPad Mini is a great tablet. If video editing is primary use, we recommend the 9-inch iPad Air which offers similar performance and features at a slightly higher price.
