It does look gorgeous. But again, it's all form over function. Miracast is going to be the next big thing, and Apple with their closed eco system will miss out. They really need to start paying nicely with the rest of the kids or they will end up on their own.
those android tablets got a huge boarder to it, look so stupid.
ps: not a fan of all tablets, apple and android.
The last line of the review says it all. (the choice is really between sensible and fancy, cheaper and apple at the back) It is you to decide want be sensible and get fancy and cheaper tablet or want a Apple logo at the back. I choose being sensible and you?
apple is just bullshitting now. same shit in different sizes. its going way down then its competitor. stop suing other n start to make some difference.
After Steve jobs, apple's got nothing.
to those who are thinking of buying this, rumors about ipad mini retina are already out. and we all know that rumors about apple were always right since it is their chinese factory workers who are leaking these information for money. maybe march it will be announced and released. you might as well wait.
Ted, 09 Nov 2012well, Apple will sell whatever they put to the market, sadly but true.... sometimes i just won... moreAnd why u not say Samsung stupid when have new phone every month with same design , same name and same spec ??
smaller ipad 2...just the size matter, not worth for it. I m certainly will go for nexus 7 if i want 7 inch tablet and go for ipad 4 if i wan an ipad.
another money wasting piece of junk. already sold millions ha ha god bless u buyers
Thanks gsmarena for your review.
It is one of the most balanced of the web.
Perhaps I could add that the best iPad actually is iPad 3
It's the one bring best screen and speed for the buck.
Anyway, you said this nicely, this mini is just a prequel of The real mini with retina and a6x
But apple is ainmed toward CA$H so they prefer use apple pigeon fan base for selling half backed product.
I would rather have the Samsung 7.7 - can even make phone calls from it and although older and a little slower, where is the real advantage with the mini iPad - none.
acrord32, 09 Nov 2012Dear GSMarena for a few days I have been entering to your site with the hope to see the Lumia ... morewait for a proper review, gsmarena actually test the product unlike the rest ahherm engadget, verge bias rubbish
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2012Its because idevices has a dedicated audio chip, while others are just simply software equaliz... moreDo your research properly before posting, the Samsung galaxy s3, Note 2, and Note 10.1 comes with Wolfson DAC which is way better than the Cirrus DAC in idevices, Wolfson has much better measurement, less distortion and much cleaner audio experience. Idevices lack even basic customisable equalizer, you are stuck with what Apple gave you. I wonder when will all this apple fans wake up, Gosh! Flash a proper kernel to remove audio volume limitation by gov't law and no apple device comes even close in terms of audio quality to Galaxy
