Apple iPad mini 2 is a high-level iOS tablet released back in 2013, equipped with a very powerful 1300 MHz Dual-Core 64 bit processor, a good size 7.9 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, a 5 MP back camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet's characteristics when we get into more details.

Apple didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 12.03 ounces tablet. The iPad mini 2 is just 0.3 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest devices currently available. Whereas the Apple iPad mini 2 is only 7.87" long, it manages to contain a 7.9 inches screen. About its materials, this tablet is manufactured with Aluminium, which gives a quality design and an extra resistance. The iPad mini 2 is sold in 3 colors, black, gray and white.

Apple equipped the Apple iPad mini 2 with a Apple A7 system chip, which holds an exceptional 64 bit Dual-Core CPU running at 1300 MHz with only 1 GB RAM memory which is a little poor comparing with its awesome processing power. To handle graphic calculations, it also has a 600 megahertz PowerVR G6430 graphic processing unit. This tablet has a big 32 GB internal memory and even though it doesn't have a slot for an external memory card, it is still enough to install lots of apps, games, photos and videos without worrying about filling it.

This tablet is equipped with a gorgeous 7.9 inches display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution, providing this device with a perfect graphic quality. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The iPad mini 2 provides WiFi connection (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed internet connection or fast 3G connection type, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini 2 works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can connect using both CDMA and GSM carriers.

This tablet also has a large number of great characteristics like digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This device comes with a 6471 mAh high capacity Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an incredible battery duration. An issue to consider is that this device's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, whereas with so much capacity you will probably discard this tablet before it becomes an issue.

The iPad mini 2 also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Localization and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
