    Apple has done it once again.......

    I had the first version of iPad, loved it. One drawback for me, with limited use of the hand I use naturally to hold a tablet, it was too large and bulky for extended use. The iPad Mini 4 solves that problem. The iPad Mini 4 replaces a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Unlike Apple, when new Android operating systems are released, tablet owners do not "automatically" get them. My Samsung tablet is the KitKat Android version. Even though it's a nice tablet, Samsung DID NOT offer the upgraded Android operating systems to tablet owners. Poor customer care!!!! Out of the box, the Mini 4 had ample charge to fire it up and begin setup. Setup is straight forward by just following the prompts. The Home Screen is easily customizable, more so than Android is. The negative of the Mini 4 compared to Android tablets is no widgets on the Home Screen, such as a weather app widget. Navigation on the Mini 4 could be enhanced by adding a Back Button near the Home Screen button, a feature available on the Tab Pro tablet. I notice little difference in screen resolution between the two tablets. I experience no lag, or difficulty typing on the native keyboard of the Mini 4, a problem I often experienced with the Tab Pro. All things considered, the Mini 4 is an excellent choice for anyone. With Pages, Keynote and Numbers included in iOS 9, productivity is enhanced. Working with iCloud is simple enough, and keeps my iPhone synced to my Mini 4 effortlessly. Battery life is excellent, easily going 9 hours of continuous use before recharging is necessary. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with my purchase. Thank you Best Buy for the $399 price on the 64 GB model. 16 GBs may suffice for some but I take and store lots of photos on my tablet. I do find it much easier to keep photos organized on the Mini 4 than on my Android tablet. I recommend the Mini 4 whole-heatedly to anyone looking for a highly functional tablet for personal, business or both uses.

    Best iPad Mini Yet

    Not much needs to be said if you know the iPad this is the best small sized companion money can buy. To understand this statement realize I am not an Apple fanboy, I am actually heavily invested in the great Samsung phone/home ecosystem. I make the exception for the iPad because of the extent of the audio app, gaming and application support that make the iPad perfect for work and travel. I have owned iPads since the iPad 2 released, bought the Mini 1, Mini 2 and now Mini 4. The screen is beautiful and sharp, the battery life in my day to day use that consists of 1.Email/Evernote, 2.DJ and Music Production Apps, 3. Casual gaming - I clock in at about 10 hours average on a charge. I got about 7 hours rolling high resolution movies on the plane, but that was pretty much an entire flight to Germany, I still find that quite acceptable and resolution of the movies on the screen. I am happy with the iPad for so many reasons, from minor time wasting to full time management (work). In comparison to ANY android tablet, the application support and functionality are far beyond the reaches of the OS, especially when it comes to low latency audio for music recording/production as well as game support. Really, really fast. Really, really worth the extra $100 over other high powered tablets.

    My husband did all the research for me and we both agreed that I would love the Ipad mini 4. We did test out all the Ipads in the store and this was still the one I felt was most appropriate for me. I love the size of it, I take it to class and have the powerpoints open while the teacher goes over them so I can write notes and not strain my eyes on the board. The battery life seems to last me at least a week even with having the brightness up and having the screen idle at 5 minutes, I don't use it 24/7 but I can get away with using it at school then on the couch at night to play some games or do research or even check facebook. ONLY downside so far, some of the apps I have for iphone, are not compatible with ipad and I didn't realize so it's been very frustrating. Trying to get on instagram, for one example, the ipad blows the screen up so big since the app isn't compatible and it's honestly just really annoying!

    Nice iPad

    I decided I wanted to buy a tablet this year, and though I'm not an iPhone person (I use a Samsung), I decided to go with the iPad because it seemed to be compatible in more environments than Android. (For example, I flew Delta recently and they supported iPhone, iPad, and Android phone for their wifi but not Android tablet. Not that anyone with any sort of device was able to get the wifi working anyway, but that's another story.) Once deciding on iPad, I could have gotten an older model MUCH cheaper, but decided to future-proof myself by getting the latest and greatest. Having had it now for over a month, I can say - it's good. It works, it's fast, it's easy. I sorely miss the lack of a back button like on Android - it's annoying to have to reach to the top of the screen to hit the browser back button. I'm kind of wishing I'd gone with the older, cheaper model iPad so that I could "upgrade" to an Android sooner. But Apple fans will like this model very much.

    I love this tablet. Was upgrading from a 2012 iPad mini and glad I held out because I got something thinner, lighter, and faster. This has got to be the best tablet out on the market. I wouldn't want to read books/articles and watch video on anything else. Great speed, great performance, and the most apps available. The only flaws on this tablet are: no wireless charging, no waterproofing, no rear camera flash, and no Force Touch. They definitely should carry over the front facing flash from the iPhone 6s as well. But I love this tablet and look forward to a great 2-3 years of performance out of this thing.

    Great iPad for someone who wants a smaller screen

    I bought this iPad mini mainly because my MacBook Pro needed a new hard drive bracket and ribbon and I needed something to use that a bigger screen than my iPhone. I have used my iPad mini everyday and have been loving my purchase and investment in this product. After having my iPad mini for over 6 weeks I still have not ordered the part for my Mac because I feel this has been able to fit my daily needs. Also I like with the size the fact that it is super easy to carry around places and not even realize I have it with me because of how small and lightweight this product is. I am glad the sales associate at Best Buy talked me out of buying the iPad mini 2 just because it was cheaper and to spend the extra money and get a product that wasn't as old as the iPad mini 2 was. My only complaint is I wish Apple would have had an updated model out because I probably would have prefer that over the iPad mini 4.

    I have owned several previous versions of the iPad Mini in the past, and was interested when the Mini 4 came out for some of its new features. Reviews of tablets are difficult because everyone's needs are so different, but the Mini 4 is an excellent tablet if you're looking for something portable and light. OS is easy to use, all of the standard iOS apps, and the screen is beautiful - the usual for Apple products. Unfortunately for me, it filled a niche that I didn't need filled. I own an iPhone 6 and a MacBook Air - the Mini 4 does not seem that much larger than the iPhone 6, and does not have the full computer functionality of the Air - I returned the Mini 4 because it wasn't particularly useful for me. If you have a smaller phone and/or a clunky Windows PC and want a small tablet for web, email, apps, etc, I imagine that you would be very happy with the Mini 4.

    Apple is my favorite company for electronics. We have purchased other tablets in our family, including the Kindle Fire and a Nabi. Neither one was as easy for our children to use as the IPAD. Apple just requires a click and drag. My wife had to go online for help anytime our youngest wanted to add a game to her Nabi. She'd had it just over a year, when the tablet stopped charging, no matter how long it was attached to the recharger. This was very frustrating. This is new for my wife, and she is really just starting to learn all the benefits this little product offers. Our youngest is able to easily work my wife's old IPAD mini 2. I highly recommend this product. We are going to utilize the Apple Rep to learn more about how to get the most with this new IPAD mini4. So far so good. Very fast and intuitive.

    Great Tablet !

    As a 1st Tablet, & 1st iOS device, this had a lot to live up to. I was somewhat familiar w/ iOS, but more so with Android. I'm pleasantly surprised ! The display is bright, & has a good viewing angle. Setup was easy. Battery life is good. The sound is good too, not great, but better than some smartphones I've heard. The only minor issue is the so called oleophobic screen coating. It's not actually resistant to fingerprints, but does make it easier to clean them off. I use a non alcohol based screen cleaner, to prolong the coating life, ( they can wear out / off). The connection to wifi has been very reliable. I updated to iOS 9.3.1, & have not had any problems. Games play very well. You Tube looks great, & reading books is so much nicer than on my phone just for screen size alone. I'm very haapy so far.

    "You get what you pay for." Compared to other tablets on the market, the iPad is the best. Apple makes its own hardware AND software, so everything runs in perfect harmony. I needed this iPad to run a few apps for business and I couldn't be happier with it! When I'm not using it for work (I love the portability; it's the perfect size), I stream movies, read books, browse the internet, etc. Worth the money if you need it! As always, I love BestBuy! The store where I live was sold out and I needed the iPad within 2 hours. I told the manager I had to be in Sacramento for a meeting, so he called a store on the way to Sacramento. They had one, so I paid for it, quickly picked it up near Sacramento, and arrived for my meeting 15 minutes early. Thank you!!

    My iPad purchase was for a Christmas gift, it was a hit! Product is awesome as suspected, the print reader is amazing and comes in handy for presentations. Everyone who has an Apple product should owe an iPad Mini 4. But I recommend online shopping, the customer service at the Torrance Best Buy was awful! Any customer should be treated with care no matter the size of the purchase but I was obviously spending a couple hundred dollars, sales people would half way help me and then walk away. At one point I went to the customer service desk to look for a worker (2 weeks before Christmas) and there was 9 workers standing in the back chit chatting! Not cool!!!

    I have owned other tablets from different manufacturers and an iPad Mini 2. The iPad Mini four is without a doubt the best I've seen. The processor in the Mini four is way faster than the processor in the Mini Two. I wanted the iPad Mini four in Space Grey with 64BG of memory and the only retailer to have it in stock was Best Buy. My search for this specific product included many on line sellers, including Amazon. In the end, Best Buy gave me the best deal!

    I upgraded to the iPad Mini 4 from an original iPad Mini. The Mini 4 is much faster, especially when a lot of graphical information is displayed. The retina display is also much clearer and easier to read, particularly when viewing text. The battery lasts longer, even though my new iPad has a lot more memory (64gb). I'm really pleased with this product. I had a little difficulty transferring some of the information from my original iPad, called Apple support. They were very helpful. Handed down my old Mini to someone else in the family. Still works fine. There was an Apple rep at Best Buy when I bought this. He was very helpful with explaining some of the features of the various iPads and answering my questions. Also helped that Best Buy had a great sale on the Mini 4 around Xmas

    It is so thin and yet so powerful

    I have an Ipad and it is great but some what cumbersome. Especially when trying to take advantage of video and photo capabilities. This mini is just the right size, it is easy to use plus has more powerful camera. But it not just a camera, it so much more. It's a portable and powerful computer too. It fits all the needs of a great tablet and also perfect size to watch live media. Sporting events, movies and TV shows are moving from the set top boxes to tablets. It's not just Netflix anymore. More cable companies and apps are offering more entertainment for the tablets and the iPad mini 4 handles all this media beautifully. That why I bought the 64 gb instead of just the 16 gb. I plan to get a lot of use out of this iPad Mini 4 -64 gb.

    Great screen and speed, but almost too thin....

    I have always thought the iPad Mini's don't get their proper credit for being a good alternative to the bigger tablets. Apple had not really done a significant upgrade to them until the iPad Mini 4 came out recently. They really made a good tablet much better. The speed and screen are definitely noticeably improved. My only concern with the tablet is that it now is thinner and almost too thin (by the way, your old screen protectors and cases probably won't fit the mini 4). I know that sounds strange, but it doesn't fit as comfortably or safely in the hands now. I think you almost need a case for it to feel right or you risk it slipping through your hands. Great tablet, but it does beg the question, can our devices be reaching the point where thinner won't be better?

    The iPad Mini 4 does everything I need it to do. I bought this for the purpose of putting less strain on my iPhone 6s Plus. I was on my iPhone so much that I didn't give it time to charge. That meant I needed to alleviate the stress on my iPhone. I still wanted to be in the Apple ecosystem, so I decided to go with the iPad mini 4. It's the perfect size for me and does most things well. It can even make calls and receive texts through wifi. The only reason it gets a 4/5 is because the built in speakers are bad and I don't want to rely on Bluetooth speakers and headphones all the time. Other than that, I'm more than happy with my investment.

    For email and internet research on the go this device is great. I always have my iPhone 6 with me but for detailed stuff it is just too small. And of course I'm not taking my Mac Pro with me on short trips. My old iPad is not bad but it's almost the size of the Mac Pro. I find the iPad Mini just about right. With a keyboard it can just about replace all my devices for on the go. I almost went with the iPad Mini 2 because it was discounted so much but now I'm glad I got the Mini 4. The display, finger print sensor, speed and size made it worth the extra cost. BTW, I find the Mini 4 faster than my iPhone 6 for web browsing and of course it's much easier to read than my phone (I have the regular phone, not the Plus). tsp

    This is my 3rd iPad and 2nd mini. Being that I have an all-in-one fully loaded HP, a MS Surface Pro 3 w/ pen & keyboard, and iPhone 6s Plus along with Apple Watch... Let's just say that traveling personally and for the company can be a bit trying when you have as many gadgets as I do. But if nothing else, my iPad mini 4 has the capacity and strength to do what needs to be done both work wise, academically and even in my leisure. (Word is bond) I only shop at Best Buy for my gadgets... Best prices and price matching is awesome. Being an elite member has its perks :). But overall I love, love, love my iPad mini 4! Fits in any of my handbags/backpacks without issue. Great battery life and just so slimming/lightweight.

    I purchased this iPad mini 4 for my 9 year old son. His iPod Touch was aging and had some glitches. I used the Best Buy website to pick out what I wanted and then made the purchase at the store. It was a simple easy process. The iPad mini is the perfect size for him. It's an upgrade from his iPod, but not too large. He still carries this with him to restaurants and shopping with us just like he did with his iPod touch to occupy his time when he gets a little bored. We also opted for the 64gb version, because his iPod Touch 16gb filled up quickly with photos and apps. Oh, and it's a great learning tool as well. His teacher is always recommending apps to help with his math skills. Very satisfied with this purchase.

    I have had numerous iPads since they were made. I love this product from Apple. It irritates me that people rag on those who want to spend THEIR money on Apple products. The costs are comparable to android and the product works and lasts. This big deal about apple vs android is ridiculous. For what you need an iPad to do, it does it and it does it well. I know this product will work greatly for us over the next 3-4 years and we can sell it and get a good chunk of change for it. If you want a well rounded, trustworthy, and reliable tablet, you cannot go wrong with this tablet. Again, I've had all the iPads and I'm currently reviewing on an iPad Pro 12.9 and I love it. So will you.
