Apple iPad mini 2 is a fascinating device released back in 2013, packing a quite big 7.9 inches multi-touch capacitive display, a 64-bit Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1300 MHz, a 5 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera. Is that all? Not at all, it's just the starting point of a detailed review.

Apple sells the Apple iPad mini 2 in three colors, black, gray and white. Talking about its materials, this device is manufactured with Aluminium, which gives it a high quality look. Being just 0.3 inches thick,the iPad mini 2 is thin and practical. The iPad mini 2 is quite a compact tablet, taking into account that it packs a 7.9 inches display and it is just 7.87 inches long and 5.3 inches wide. Apple appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 11.68 ounces tablet.

Apple packed this device with a incredible 7.9-inches display, and a resolution of 1536 x 2048 , which makes everything look amazing. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Apple decided to design this tablet using a high performance 1.3 GHz Dual-Core 64 bits CPU, bundled in the Apple A7 system chip with only 1 GB RAM memory which is a little low for such a great tablet. To collaborate with graphic intensive applications, it also counts with a PowerVR G6430 graphic processing unit clocking at 600 megahertz. A great advantage of this tablet is its 64 GB huge internal memory and although it doesn't have an SD memory card expansion slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without even thinking about filling the tablet.

This tablet has WiFi capability (and it can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE fast connectivity or 3G fast internet connection, using HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini 2 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This tablet has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. It can also film 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. This camera also counts with many interesting features: auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, time lapse video and geo tagging.

The iPad mini 2 features a great 6471 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this device an amazing battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that the iPad mini 2's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, though with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes a real problem.

The iPad mini 2 also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Apple iPad mini 2 is a great option for everyone considering it's an incredible tablet and it costs only $ 285. No matter if you will use it for work, want it mostly for social networks and internet browsing, want this device to take lots of photos or need a tablet to play lots of games, this device is probably a great choice . Apple sells this tablet with Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
