    Great size and good display

    |
    Posted .

    I like this iPad mini 2 better than a regular size iPad. The size is more convenient. iPad mini fits easier into a big purse. It has decent touch response time. The cellular it a great convenience. Assessories are easy to obtain for it. Movies look very nice and the camera isn't too bad either in good bright lighting. I really would like to see an sd card slot but for now I just put my favorite iTunes playlists in memory. I like knowing I can communicate through cellular when there is no wifi available....ipad with cellular is a good emergency backup if your phone isn't available. iPad is generally very user friendly and you don't have to be a mad scientist to figure it out.

    LOVE THIS!

    Posted .

    Let me first say that the battery life on this thing is awesome. I took it out of the box - straight from UPS delivery - on the 17th. It had 85% charge on it. I used it until last night (played games, set it up, did social networking and took pictures), and when I plugged it in before bed, it still had 38% battery. That was roughly 2 1/2 days. Can't complain about that. Have had an iPod touch in the past, not totally familiar with Apple products, but bought it because I wanted to do away with expensive Verizon prepaid phone (which I could barely see anymore# - and combine monthly bills by combining phone and laptop. Sorry to say I still need Charter to keep wifi #frown# but it's okay. I was paying $60 plus tax for 2G of data on Verizon prepaid smartphone. On this plan, it is a LOT less, and even though it isn't a phone, there are apps to use it as one if I choose. I can keep a cheap Verizon flip and still be below my original amount paid. As soon as I learn how to navigate the iPad and set it up, I will like it better. The screen is awesome. I would have liked to spare the high price and get the regular mini, but I figured why by an old OS when the new one was out for $100 for more. Also the Verizon cellular embed is an extra $100, but it's okay. It is a little heavier than I thought it would be #like I said, I am unfamiliar with these products# but I got a fitting case with a cover on it and it makes it easier to hold. Wishing it had a different type of storage, or at least easier to use, but I bought the 32G model, as you only have about 26G out of the box - once all of the pre-loaded apps use up the room that they take to operate. I will learn iCloud and transfer things off to external drive when needed. This will just take some effort on my part to learn. I'm older and don't learn as quickly. Very happy with my purchase, and if you can afford it - I encourage you to buy it. I am an Android user, and it is quirky. I have to unlearn that system and learn this one. Android is less expensive, but I could not get a good tablet with Verizon, so I had to go with the iPad. So glad that Best Buy has financing...it made it possible for me to buy this for myself. Many thanks to BB for their excellent customer service and lightning fast delivery. I did pay for overnight #$21) and it was here in just about 24 hours - even here at the very busy Christmas season. Very appreciated!

    Exactly what I expected

    Posted .

    I spent a long time comparing tablets before choosing the iPad mini. In the end I decided to spend the extra money because I have an iPhone, MacBook Pro, iPod, and Apple TV. I like that iCloud keeps all of my emails, contacts, etc. synced across all my devices and that was the selling point for me. It has been a month and I am extremely happy with my product. Like I said, the only negative is the cost.

    Ipad mini 2

    Posted .

    Never purchased any type of Apple products before. So first time purchased and I would say it's easy to navigate. Fast process speed with games and internet. Size is perfect to carry around for family trips. Protected it with the otterbox and it was the right thickness and weight for lugging around. I wouldn't go any bigger.

    bought this for travel. perfect for travelling. light weight and offers all the great features of an iPad - just smaller and lighter. fits easily in small bag rather than lugging around a bigger and less compact iPad for travel when ounces and size matter. Love it!

    Got a cell plan-ready iPad Mini for less than a wifi-only model and a lot more storage! Don't be afraid to get a Best Buy Open Box item. They stand behind their products with no questions asked. My son lives his new Mini.

    Newest iPad for me

    Got rid of my smartphone for a dumbphone and plan on using the iPad for everything I needed with a bigger screen. As usual, the iPad being an Apple product is very easy to use.

    Great deal on the mini-2, increased memory, and verizon connection to boot. Super happy with this purchase and the fact it was 'on sale' was a huge bonus!! It's an iPad and it's great.

    Mini is easier to hold onto and lighter

    I have the IPAD 2 and I enjoy it but it is rather large and bulky and a friend had the Mini and once I saw it and it's size I was sold. I also got it connected to Verizon which will make it convenient when I travel.

    This is the 3rd tablet I've bought for family members and this time it's for me.everyone has become so much more Internet savvy with communicating since they have iPads. I have an iPhone and find it to be like a big iPhone. It it easy to navigate. My mom is 87 and is rocking the technogical world now with her in mini ipad. She says she didn't know what she had been missing! I highly recommend this product.

    Nice, but Internet seems slower than standard size

    |
    Posted .

    It is cheaper, I got twice the memory for same price as iPad Air with 16G. BIG Win! Now I see why, the internet is killer slow it seems, but I really needed the space. If you never had a regular iPad, you may not notice. My husband gets frustrated an pulls out the laptop cause he doesn't want to wait. Not sure if it is Bing or the sites I visit. Can't really tell if it is slower at home or on 4G, I have to make a point of noting this. Otherwise, nothing else seems slower.

    Almost Perfect

    Posted .

    This item itself has no flaws, and anything I don't like about it is strictly my personal preference. I prefer the full size iPad over the mini, but I'm happy to have a smaller tablet that has the same internal specifications as it's full-size partner. My three requirements for a tablet are storage(need 32GB minimum), 4G connectivity(it's a work device), and large size. I was only able to afford two of the three, and chose the two I felt were most important to my work. I love it, even though my fingers don't, and my eyes prefer the larger screen.

    Best tablet

    My mini iPAD is my best friend! One change I cannot get used to is you have separated the "Notes" into different categories. We should have the capability to have them in Alphabetical order instead of it being saved according to date and categories.

    Great gift for grandchildren

    My daughter teaches 2nd grade and she uses Ipad's in her classroom as a supplement to her normal curriculum. It is amazing what the kids have learned to do with them to improve their educational experience, from creating their own I movies to enhanced reading and math. This is not a toy and the kids love them. I bought my granddaughter who happens to be in the second grade her own mini Ipad which is a great size for her.

    Always a reliable choice!

    I have had the Apple I pad Mini for over 5 years now, unfortunately I also have been 2 of them, during that time! Due To Screens Cracking, etc.etc. Regardless, I have chosen ipad mini and mini 2 every time because they are so easy to just transfer all my info over and pick up right where I left off in the broken ones.

    The mini works just as well as our iPad Air but is even more convenient to Stowe and carry. In my opinion, the wifi ready model is the way to go!

    Wonderful with the modem

    I debated purchasing the mini vs the iPad air but absolutely love the mini! Compact, fits in a small notebook sleeve for travel, and I even use it for gps. I love the ability to hit my contact address for cold calling and then with the modem with Verizon service I can instantly get turn by turn directions to my prospects. My org iPad could not do this with the voice turn by turn.
