    I originally purchased the larger iPad Air and returned that for this mini. I love the size, it's so much easier to hold and fits in a small bag or purse. I replaced a Samsung Tablet 4 with this, and there is a huge difference with speed, battery life, picture quality and more. I have switch my phone also from and Android to an iPhone, but I do miss some of the features androids have that Apple doesn't. You can't go back to a previous page as easily and you don't have the capability to add more storage for two examples. It would be great if they would someday combine all the features into one great tablet! I wanted the Gold color but it was out-of-stock so I got the Space Grey. They grey really is a pretty color. I've attached a picture, that I took with the Android, but it is a bit darker than it appears. One nice thing about purchasing this at Best Buy is that they price matched it from a different store that was $50. cheaper but they were out-of-stock at that store.

    I really love my new iPad mini 5! I love all apple products really, but this one is my second fave. My iPhone is first! I have added a smart folio ckeyboard case and paper like screen cover and now my iPad mini 5 is like my baby laptop and I take it EVERYWHERE ! The sound quality is way better than my last one thi mini 4 and the picture clarity is great too. I’m happy I got it! My only issue with apple is the pricing.... they could be more budget friendly but otherwise I am happy! Love my iPad Mini 5

    The iPad mini is a great tablet but the battery power. This is not the case with the new iPad mini. This iPad is powerful, fast, and supports the Apple Pencil. This is my third iPad mini my second iPad is ten years old it still work but the battery is bad have to keep it plugged in all the time it’s my grand baby’s now. My new one is the battery power is great it last 10 hours. If you have been waiting to upgrade your iPad mini, this is the upgrade you've been waiting for.

    Was in the market for an iPad and I wanted something compact for my everyday needs and I ended up going with this and I love it. So perfect not too small not too big great for casual use. Surfing the web and watching videos are such a pleasant experience on this device. Only downside is there’s only speakers on the bottom of the ipad which is kind of a bummer but not a deal breaker. Overall I would recommend this. Smooth experience works perfect with Apple Pencil first gen as well.

    The new iPad mini is amazing, I upgraded from a mini 2 and the speed difference is night and day. Screen is nice but blacks are not as dark as XSMax, understandable since it is not OLED. Pair with back cover and Smart Keyboard so you can detach front cover for gaming.

    I got this new mini iPad (5th Generation) to replace my old one (4th Generation). Best Buy really gives the best price! I got the Geek Squad certified - excellent condition, so I got it cheaper than the normal price! It came MUCH earlier than the expected date that they gave me, so that’s a surprise! It is in an excellent condition, all works perfect and it’s a very powerful machine (in comparison to my old one). It has been my constant companion since the day it arrives. I love the small size, but this new iPad can do so much more than the 4th generation. I can also do the doodling and drawing with the Apple Pencil now... which is one of the main reason for the upgrade! LOVE IT! And love BestBuy for all these techs! BestBuy is the only place I will go these days!

    Why didn’t I get any points for buying I pad. I pad is great, but service in your store is not good. I checked on line to see if the store I went to had the iPad and it said they did, but before I drive 30 miles one way, I call the store and no one answered phone. I called twice no answer so I drive to the store and find many sales people visiting with each other. I didn’t know where iPads were in the store and had to interrupt two salesmen who were visiting. Had to wait for person to help me and then to find out they didn’t have the iPad I drove to get. I ordered one to have on Wednesday no it came on Thursday. This is last time I will set foot in your store.

    This was a Christmas gift for my husband. We LOVE Apple products and iPads in particular. However, this is his 2nd one where the screen just goes completely white and he can do absolutely nothing. Geek Squad couldn't help. Because it wasn't doing it at that moment, Apple store couldn't help. He's taken pictures using his phone, but no solution. That's the only complaint, and there's no rhyme or reason to it. Otherwise, it's a great purchase!

    I have been using an old I pad and ran out of storage. I struggled the need to purchase this one. I am old as dirt and am on my I pad many hours a day. It is my life line and follows me everywhere. I am on a fixed income so this was a true splurge. I do not use it to ✍️, I just wanted it to have more storage. It has changed my life. I love it. The no interest option for one year at Best Buy made this possible. I guess I decided to upgrade at the perfect time.

    This is my 2nd IPAD mini and I just love it. I take it everywhere with me. I purchased it because unlike the IPAD mini4, this one works with the apple pencil and I wanted to learn to draw. The mini is the right size and weight to carry with me, so that I can draw anytime and anywhere. I am very happy with the IPAD mini 5.

    There is no limit to the usefulness of this tablet for work or play. It almost fits into your pocket (if you have large pockets), yet delivers all the power and entertainment of much larger Apple devices. Mine lives in my briefcase (except for nightly charging) and goes with me on vacations, too. It fits nicely into the Apple ecosphere.

    I normally use pc desktop and Mac laptop. Recently tried fire, but basically for games. Wife talked me into this new ipad mini, and while it has taken a bit to learn the system I am finding it fills the gap between the fire and laptop nicely. Still learning, but am impressed with it more every day and am seriously considering leaving the laptop at home and just bringing the ipad when traveling. I would buy again. Got the 256 gb model so will be some time before it will need to be upgraded. A bit spendy, but seems to be well built and very functional so actually a good value.

    Great smaller iPad which was just the size I wanted - easier to hold or carry it with you. Lots of great power and brings up items that you are searching for quickly. Also has a long battery life.

    This new Apple i-pad mini is an additional gift to her [her first one a mini 4 we purchased a few years ago] the newest one has more memory - double that of her first one - and she is finding it to be very enjoyable. It, the new mini member, gets used quite a bit as well as the previous one! When I ask her which she prefers, I get the reply, " naturally the newest gets the highest praise, however I still like the first one one. " So the newest gets the "thumbs up"!
