IMO, the ipad mini 2 will have "great battery life" as 23.8watt = 6400+ mah..!!
which is way larger than nexus 7 2013 (3950mah). Also the nexus 7 already has above average battery life for its hd screen....

Best to save and buy the highest storage model, the 128gb, if you are planning to keep the device for long. Else pick the lowest for resale value.

16 -> 32 -> 100$ for 16gb more
32 -> 64 -> 100$ for 32gb more
64 -> 128 -> 100$ for 64gb more

16gb -> 33$ per GB
32gb -> 20$ per GB
64gb -> 11$ per GB
128gb -> 6$ per GB

> In reply to tikibiird @ 2013-11-04 23:14 from x3nR - click to readIpad mini 2, one reason is that its 7.9" screen with a ratio of 4:3 is best for reading and multimedia. I don't understand why Androids do not use the same aspect ratio, rather they use 16:9 or 16:10-these will make their devices look much longer relative to its width, portrait mode is awkward. I compared the screen area of ipad mini vs LG G Pad 8.3, and the difference is just a sq. inch although G Pad 8.3 has longer screen diagonal, the reason is that it has aspect ratio of 16:10 compared to Ipad's 4:3.
Difference = (10*16)(8.3^2)/356-(7.9^2)*0.6*0.8 = 1 sq . in.

But ipad mini is a bit wider allowing you to see more view of a document in a portrait mode which the most comfortable for reading, since you can hold with one hand easily.

But the best advantage of Androids especially G Pad 8.3 is that you can bump the memory to 16GB+64 GB(microSD) total and you can use any USB cable out there to charge or access your device. And btw, it is USD350 vs USD400 Ipad Mini 2 16GB.

Another advantage of LG G Pad 8.3 is that it is narrower by almost a centimeter making it more handy pocketable.

half the price of this tablet is invested on the mark on its back. Techwise, it's even lagging with todays standards. Apple has transformed into just a mean fashion accessory.

> In reply to Aerosheet @ 2013-11-06 02:37 from kP}B - click to readWell if you are on a budget than yeah I'd get a nexus 7. However, the iPad mini 2 is a more premium product. Browsing on the internet is going to be a much better experience with the iPad mini 2 as well. Both devices have great displays as far as ppi goes. However, I dig the 7.9 inch screen over the 7 inch. You might as well get a large phone rather than a nexus 7. The iPad mini 2 is also going to be more responsive. As far as speed, they will be about the same. The 64 bit may seem impressive but the iPad mini 2 isn't optimized for that power. So it won't take advantage of the power that the A7 chip offers. It will still be a very very fast device. Of course one big factor is the operating system that you prefer. I prefer iOS 7. It's easy to use and has some cool features. At the end of the day, it's your choice.
