Apple iPad mini 3 is an impressive device launched in October 2014, counting with an exceptional 64 bits Dual-Core processor speeding at 1.3 GHz, a pretty big 7.9-inches multi-touch screen, and 2 cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 megapixels front facing camera.

This tablet ships with a Apple A7 system chip, backed up by an extremely fast 64-bit Dual-Core CPU running at 1300 MHz and only 1 GB of RAM which is a bit low comparing with its powerful processor. Graphic rendering generally uses a lot of processing power, so it also has a PowerVR G6430 GPU running at 600 MHz to improve overall performance. A great aspect of this tablet is its huge 64 GB internal storage memory and though it doesn't come with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games available nowadays without worrying about filling the portable tablet.

It seems like Apple forgot about weight optimization in this 12.03 ounces tablet. This tablet is available in two color options, gray and gold. Though this tablet is just 7.87" long and 5.3" wide, it is still able to fit a a 7.9" display. This tablet is thin and practical, with a thickness of just 0.3 inches. Regarding its body materials, the iPad mini 3 is mainly manufactured with Aluminium, giving this tablet a quality feel.

This tablet has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. It also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. The camera also has a large number of amazing characteristics like auto-focus, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, face detection shooting, geo tagging and time lapse video.

Apple packed this device with an amazing 7.9 inches screen, and a resolution of 1536 x 2048 , which makes everything look vivid and colorful. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Apple iPad mini 3 counts with wifi capability (and it can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) fast data connection and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini 3 uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it can use both GSM and CDMA networks.

The Apple iPad mini 3 packs a huge 6350 mAh non-removable battery that can keep this tablet running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, though with its 6350 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that happens.

This device also features a couple nice characteristics like Biometric fingerprint, Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Localization, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Apple sells the iPad mini 3 for 289 dollars, which is not very cheap for this type of portable tablet. No matter if you need this tablet for work, need a tablet majorly for internet broswing and social networks, are an amateur photographer or are looking for a tablet device for playing games, this device is probably a good choice . When you buy the Apple iPad mini 3 you will also receive USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
