Apple iPad mini 4 is an interesting device released a few years ago, equipped with a quite powerful 1500 MHz processor, a huge 7.9 inches multi touch screen, and 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. That's everything we have to say? Not at all, it's only the introduction of this extreme review.

This cellphone is equipped with a Apple A8 system chip, packing a good processing unit speeding at 1500 megahertz with a big 2 GB RAM memory. A great advantage of this phone is its astonishing 128 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't include a slot for an SD memory card, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without thinking about filling it.

Apple is offering the Apple iPad mini 4 in two colors: gray and gold. This device is just 0.24" thick, taking it to the thinnest phone's category. Even though the iPad mini 4 just has 8" long and 5.3 inches wide, it manages to contain a 7.9 inches screen. This phone is much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone of this size. About its design materials, this phone is built with aluminum.

Apple designed this phone with a high-tech 7.9 inches screen, and a 2048 x 1536 resolution, giving this device an amazing graphic quality. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This phone features two cameras, an 8 MP back camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. It is capable of capturing videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow-motion videos at 120 frames per second (4 times slower ). Additionally, the camera features some useful characteristics like auto-focus, digital image stabilization, time lapse video, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone comes with a big capacity 5124 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with an impressive battery life. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery is not replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, though with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this phone before it becomes an issue.

The iPad mini 4 includes wifi capability (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G fast connectivity or 3G fast data connection, over HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks and it works with both GSM and CDMA networks.

This phone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Apple is offering this cellphone for $ 390, quite the same as other same level cellphones. No matter whether you want a gamer cellphone, need a device to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, want this cellphone to take many pictures or want this phone for work, you will probably be very pleased with this phone.
