Apple iPad mini 4 Review

    See other variants reviews Score: 75.6 / 100

Apple iPad mini 4 is a breath-taking portable tablet launched in 2015, provisioned with a great 1500 megahertz processing unit, a 7.9 inches multi touch screen, and 2 cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera.

Apple ships this tablet with a Apple A8 chip, holding an extremely powerful 1.5 gigahertz processor with a great 2 GB of RAM. The Apple iPad mini 4 counts with a 128 GB large internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't come with an SD card slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

The Apple iPad mini 4 feels much lighter than what you expect from a tablet of this size. This tablet is just 0.24 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest devices out there. Even though the iPad mini 4 is only 8" long, it still manages to hold a 7.9" display. The iPad mini 4 is sold in 2 different color options, gray and gold. Talking about its body design materials, the iPad mini 4 is majorly made of aluminum.

This tablet includes a completely amazing 2048 x 1536 7.9 inches screen, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels in the screen. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This tablet features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It is capable of filming videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 120 frames per second. Additionally, the camera has a few nice features like digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This tablet packs a big 5124 mAh non-removable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an amazing battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, even though with such a great capacity you will probably replace this device before it becomes an issue.

This device features Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE fast data connection and 3G fast data connection, over HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini 4 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks and it can use both GSM and CDMA carriers.

The iPad mini 4 also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.2) and GPS Navigation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The iPad mini 4 may be a little bit overpriced considering it is sold for 288 dollars, and many similar tablets are being sold cheaper than that. The iPad mini 4 is probably the correct choice for you no matter if you are looking for a social tablet, want it for playing games, are a photography fan or are looking for a device for work.
