    Nice iPad

    Posted

    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.

    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.

    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 best smaller sized tablet you can buy!

    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.

    This product is about like any other Apple product, a few nice upgrade features from previous model however never really head and shoulders improvement. I replaced an IPad Mini 2 with this and it is faster, thinner, better screen and include the fingerprint reader. All nice features however it leave me wondering was it worth the cost to upgrade. I got mine for $100 off on sale, so if not replacing a previous mimi or a version 1 I would say great deal however if you are as me replacing a version 2 or later you will be left questioning was it worth it. The only answer I can give is I don't know.

    Beware of the Open-Box Special

    I purchased this on BestBuy.com as an open box special. Although the box was not new, the iPad looked fine. However, when I started to activate it, I discovered that Best Buy had failed to deactivate the prior user's Apple ID! The previous owner had written his/her email and ID inside the box lid, but it had been scratched over and was illegible. When I called Geek Squad, they told me it couldn't be corrected and I would have to return it! I called Apple Support, and their tech walked me through it. Apple A+. Geek Squad F.

    I replaced my very old ipad with the ipad mini. I love the size and the clarity is incredible! For the most part it's very responsive to touch, though I do seem to have a bit of trouble with one of my favorite games not always sensing my touch. It happens more at the top of the screen. It might be the old program. Anyway, it's super fast and it was easy to sync with my old one so all my purchases made it to the new one. Highly recommend! You can't really go wrong with Apple and since my old one was a second generation, it owes me nothing!

    Apprehensive at first for this is my 1st tablet but buying my daughter one I decided why not get one also. I needed more than a toy but a tool I could use for both for work and personal business. Finding a lot of uses and finding new uses all the time. I am hooked and will hope more work related apps become avail.. Great when I'm away from either my pic or MacBook so I use this more each day. I am really glad that Best Buy had such a great sale that enticed me to purchase an additional for myself.

    With the warning that my iPad mini would no longer be able to update the iOS... I began looking for a replacement. I love the size and functionality of the mini iPad and was glad to find that the new one fit the bill. I'm not sure why they made two changes - it is a tiny bit longer than my original (so I needed a new cover) and there is no longer a mute button near the volume keys. I was thrilled with the surprise sale that Best Buy had on the Apple products.

    My wife needed to upgrade from her older iPad. It was the original size and she is loving the smaller one. It's much faster and takes great pictures. Personally I find myself using my phone more than I jump on the iPad but when I am on the iPad I'm never disappointed. if you want a tablet that you don't need a huge screen on but something bigger than your phone, this is the one to get. Apple iOS is always a huge benefit for anybody wanting a tablet.

    Works just fine

    It works just like an apple product. The good thing is it's really lighter, but with all the covers you need to protect it, it's not that light. But that's not apple's fault. And I do like the finger print unlock function. Mine's volume is really small. Not sure that's just a problem with mine or with all the new minis. And generally I prefer's the design and material of old minis. I really appreciate Steve's sense of beauty.

    Great iPad for our 8 year old

    My daughter saved up the money to buy this herself. Her best friends have iPad minis with 16 GB of storage. We decided it would be worthwhile getting the upgraded storage since we are planning on having this for a long time. The size is perfect for her to carry and the battery life is typical for Apple tablets. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because Best Buy dropped the price as soon as we ordered it and don't price match on open box.

    No written instructions

    I finally had to download from my desktop, the instructions on how to use the iPad mini. There was just one slip of paper that needed to be read through a magnifying glass on some basic notes, but no user manual. Even with my experience with computers, I could not get it to work so had to have my son and his lady friend provide some hands on tutorial. If there is a user manual, it should be made available at place of purchase.

    iPad mini 4 a little lighter than the iPad mini

    I like the new size and a few features are better. I only purchased a new iPad to get more memory (from 16 to 64). Apple would not sell any older iPads with more memory than 16gb. Therefore, I had to get an iPad Mini4. The Apple iCloud failed me. The games on the iPad did NOT Restore following a complete backup of the original iPad. Apple Care, as well as the game developers, were unable to access the original app data.

    This was what my daughter wanted for Christmas. What can I say about but it is apple and apple rules the tablet world. The processing speed is extremely fast. It allows her to talk thru FaceTime with her friends and even helps with school. As always with Apple, the price is a little extreme. That is reason for the 4 star. This was a $100 of and thought it was still a little high. But you do get awsome quality from Apple

    I wanted to buy a 64g mini ipad 4 for my son for his birthday but the brand new one is a ltttle expensive for me. Then I saw this "Open Box" advertised in Bestbuy Online which is on sale and is really cheaper compared to brand new one. I ordered it online and it turns out to be very good after all, and it is Geek-Squad Certified to be good. I am one happy mother saving every penny in all things.

    I purchased it for my toddler. It's a good size for him and gives us access to Apple's app store, which just doesn't compare to the Amazon app store. It's also much smoother with a much better resolution, but it, of course, comes at a substantial price at over 10x the cost. All in all, it was a good buy, but the price, which is essentially the same as the iPad Air 2, docks it one star.

    Yes! I said awesome because the iPad Mini 4 is a very well engineered device. The quality and feel is top-notch. It's a perect device to use when you want to flip through content on Clipboard or any of your favorite web-hangouts. I have the 64GB version, so I will have this puppy for a long time! Note,...I probably would have given it 5-Stars ha I opted for the Cellular version! Oh well.

    The Battery is terrible! Charging is much too frequently needed compared to my iPAD first gen / too small font for seniors or visually impaired/ great apple care but the classes offered in Knoxville are not enough & very poorly scheduled & not comprehensive / the location was much too distracting & noisy. I am very sorry to have driven all that distance.

    I entered the store needing to upgrade my old ipad2. It was between the iPad pro at a higher cost and the iPad mini4 at a lower cost. Ultimately the faster and newer processing power led me to the mini. It takes some getting used to the smaller screen than my iPad2 however the speed with which it operates makes up for that. Additionally the picture in picture option is helpful.
