Apple iPad mini 2 is an absolutely great iOS tablet device launched many years ago, equipped with a high performance 64 bits Dual-Core processing unit running at 1.3 GHz, a big 7.9" screen, and two cameras, a 5 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. But let's get into much more detail.

Apple decided to equip this device using a Apple A7 system chip, which holds a very fast 1300 MHz Dual-Core 64-bit CPU and only 1 GB RAM which is a little bit low comparing with this tablet's powerful CPU. Graphic rendering generally eats a lot of processing power, so it also uses a PowerVR G6430 GPU ticking at 600 MHz to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. A good advantage of this tablet is the 32 GB astonishing internal storage and though it doesn't come with an SD extension slot, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without having to worry about running out of space at all.

Regarding its aspect, this tablet is mainly made of Aluminium, which gives a premium finish and better resistance. This tablet is just 0.3" thick, taking it to the thinnest tablet's category. Although the iPad mini 2 just has 7.87 inches long, it is still able to fit a a 7.9" display. Apple appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 11.68 oz tablet. Apple sells this device in three colors, black, gray and white.

The iPad mini 2 includes a gorgeous 1536 x 2048 7.9-inches display, which makes all images and videos look absolutely perfect. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This device can also capture videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 frames per second. This tablet also has lots of amazing features: digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Apple iPad mini 2 comes with a big capacity 6471 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery that provides the iPad mini 2 an incredible battery life. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to live shorter, while with so much capacity you will probably replace this tablet device before it becomes an issue.

The iPad mini 2 offers wi-fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) fast connection type and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This tablet also includes a handful of nice features such as Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Apple offers this tablet for 255 dollars, which is quite expensive for comparing with similar tablets. The iPad mini 2 is definitely the correct option for you if you are a photography fan, will use it mainly for internet broswing and social networks, need a work tablet device or are looking for a gaming tablet. This tablet is packed with USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
