Apple iPad mini (2019) Review

Score: 9.91/10

Apple iPad mini (2019) is a top-notch device released 2 years ago, featuring an exceptional Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2490 MHz, a quite big 7.9" screen, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 7 megapixels front-facing camera. Let's take a better sight of what this tablet can do.

Apple decided to equip this tablet using a Apple A12 Bionic APL1W81 system chip, packing an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 2.49 gigahertz with a great 3 GB RAM memory. A great aspect of this tablet is its 256 GB large internal memory and even though it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it is still enough to store tons of apps, games, songs, pictures and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This tablet is sold in 3 color options, gold, gray and silver. The iPad mini (2019) is a very compact tablet, considering it packs a 7.9" screen and it is only 8 inches long. This tablet is just 0.24 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest device's category. Apple made an excellent design job making the Apple iPad mini (2019) weight just 10.87 ounces. Talking about its materials quality, the iPad mini (2019) is mostly manufactured with Aluminum .

This tablet features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 7 MP front camera. The Apple iPad mini (2019) also captures videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 120 frames per second. Additionally, this tablet's camera also has time lapse video.

The iPad mini (2019) has a high-tech 7.9" display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful.

This tablet counts with wi-fi connection (although it can't be provided to other devices acting as a wireless modem), 4G (LTE-A) high bandwidth data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a slower 4G variation) and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This tablet has dual SIM so it is able to use two different phone numbers and even different carriers at the same time.

This device counts with a big 5058 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery providing the iPad mini (2019) an impressive battery duration. An issue to consider is that the iPad mini (2019)'s battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to live shorter, whereas with this big battery you will probably replace this portable tablet before that happens.

The Apple iPad mini (2019) also includes a few cool features such as Fingerprint unlock, Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The iPad mini (2019) is being sold for around 679 dollars, somewhat expensive for comparing with similar tablets. The iPad mini (2019) is the right choice no matter whether you are a photography fan, want this portable tablet mostly for social networks, need a device for work or are looking for a gaming tablet. This tablet is packed with Lightning to USB cable and USB power adapter .
