Apple iPad mini 2 is an incredible device launched in 2013, counting with a quite big 7.9 inches display, an extremely powerful 1.3 gigahertz Dual-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera.

This device feels a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 11.68 ounces. This device is offerred in three color options, black, gray and white. The iPad mini 2 has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.3 inches. This device is a very compact tablet, considering it packs a 7.9" screen and it's only 7.87" long. Talking about its aspect, this tablet is mostly built with Aluminium, which gives it a quality design.

This tablet is powered by a high performance 1300 MHz Dual-Core 64-bits CPU, included in an Apple A7 system chip and only 1 GB RAM which is a bit low for a device of this level. Graphic rendering generally uses lots of processing power, so it uses an additional PowerVR G6430 GPU ticking at 600 MHz to help handle those graphic tasks. A key aspect of the Apple iPad mini 2 is its huge 32 GB internal storage and while it doesn't include an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about how much memory is left.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It can also film videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also includes a high number of interesting characteristics like auto-focus, digital image stabilization, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

Apple designed this tablet with an awesome 7.9-inches display, and a 1536 x 2048 resolution, which makes everything look absolutely perfect. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This tablet features a big capacity 6471 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, even though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes a real problem.

This tablet features Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed internet connection or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This tablet also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your device close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is being sold for 255 dollars, which is really cheap comparing with similar devices.
