Apple iPad mini 3 is a powerful iOS tablet launched some years ago, provisioned with an exceptional 64-bit Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1.3 gigahertz, a comfortable 7.9-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera. Let's take a closer sight of what this tablet can give us.
Apple decided to power this device with an extremely powerful 64 bits Dual-Core processor running at 1.3 GHz, packed into the Apple A7 chip with only 1 GB RAM which is a little bit poor for such a great device. Graphic intensive tasks often consume a lot of processing power, so this tablet counts with an additional PowerVR G6430 graphics processing unit working at 600 megahertz to help with that calculations. This tablet comes with a 128 GB big internal storage memory and while it doesn't count with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about running out of space at all.
Apple made this device in 2 color options, gray and gold. Regarding its design materials, this tablet is mainly created with Aluminium, which gives it a top level feel and better resistance. The Apple iPad mini 3 is a very compact tablet, given that it features a 7.9" screen and it has just 7.87" long. Being just 0.3 inches thick,this device is thin and stilized. This tablet doesn't feel very lightweight for a tablet of this size, weighting 11.68 oz.
Apple packed this device with a incredible 7.9" display, and a 1536 x 2048 resolution, giving this tablet a very detailed graphical experience. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.
This tablet features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. It can also shoot videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. The camera also counts with lots of great characteristics like auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.
This tablet counts with an amazing 6350 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the iPad mini 3 with a great battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, though with so much capacity you will probably buy a new device before that happens.
This device includes wi-fi connection (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), LTE 4G fast data connection or the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The Apple iPad mini 3 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.
This tablet also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
Apple is selling this device for only $ 360, which is a quite low price for comparing with similar tablets. No matter if you are looking for a gaming tablet, want a tablet for work, want a social tablet or love photography, this tablet is definitely a very good choice for you. This tablet includes Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
