My mini iPad mini review
Disclaimer: I haven’t bought an iPad mini, but I probably will in the coming weeks. This short review comes from reading all of the other reviews online and playing with the device in an Apple Store for a little while. I have also used all of the other tablets I mention.
Apple released the iPad mini this past Friday. Instead of a 10-inch Retina display like the current iPad, the iPad mini sports a 7.9-inch non-Retina display. This means that the display is smaller and the device can be held comfortably in one hand, but there’s a tradeoff in terms of screen quality. If you’re used to the incredibly detailed display quality of the third-generation iPad and newer iPhones, you’ll notice pixelation on the iPad mini. It’s especially apparent when reading text for long periods of time, so take that into consideration if you’re contemplating a purchase.
I am all for the idea of a smaller iPad, and Apple has executed its first miniaturized tablet very nicely. The iPad mini will get much better as its updated each year, and there’s no denying that Apple has put forth an admirable effort this first time around. The iPad mini feels rock solid in your hands. It’s scarily light, yet it also feels strangely durable.
Q:Alex, Just wanted to get some advise on your views regarding which iOS photo editing app on the iPAD that you would prefer? Snapseed or iPhoto for iOS? Thanks for your input and time? -Jeremy, Colorado Springs
Snapseed all the way for editing. It’s hands down the best out there. iPhoto for management, especially if you also use iPhoto on the Mac.
