Apple iPad mini 2 is a high quality iOS portable tablet released in October 2013, featuring a great Dual-Core processing unit running at 1.3 GHz, a 7.9 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera. But it's time to get into more details.

This tablet is powered by a Apple A7 system chip, holding a high performance 64-bits Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1300 MHz and only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a bit poor for such a good portable tablet. Graphic rendering generally uses a lot of processing power, so this tablet counts with a PowerVR G6430 graphic processing unit working at 600 megahertz to take some work out of the CPU. The Apple iPad mini 2 counts with a 16 GB interesting internal storage memory and though it doesn't include a slot for an external memory card, it should be enough to install hundreds of applications, although it probably wouldn't be suitable if you are planning to install a couple of the largest games currently available or taking tons of photos and videos.

The Apple iPad mini 2 is a bit heavy comparing to other tablets , weighting 11.68 ounces. The iPad mini 2 is sold in 3 color options, black, gray and white. Being just 0.3 inches thick,this device is extremely slim and good-looking. This tablet is a very compact device, taking into account that it has a 7.9" screen and it's just 7.87 inches long and 5.3" wide. Talking about its design materials, this device is majorly created with Aluminium, which gives a quality finish and high resistance.

This device features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera. It can also film 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera features a high number of cool features like digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, HDR mode, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This tablet has an astonishing 1536 x 2048 7.9-inches display, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels composing the display. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The iPad mini 2 has a 6471 mAh great Li-Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this tablet running for many hours without charging it. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery isn't replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, although with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new tablet device before that becomes an issue.

This tablet counts with WiFi connection (which it can provide to other devices acting as a modem), 4G (LTE) high performance connection type and fast 3G internet connection, over HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini 2 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

The iPad mini 2 also includes a couple useful characteristics as Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet may not be a good choice considering it costs $ 275, while some similar devices are being sold cheaper than that. No matter if you want it for work, need a portable tablet mostly for internet broswing and social networks, are looking for a gaming tablet or you love taking pictures, you will definitely love this tablet. When you buy this tablet you will also receive Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
