Apple iPad Mini 3 MGGQ2LL/A NEWEST VERSION (64GB, Wi-Fi, Space Gray) (Certified Refurbished)

Apple iPad mini is a pretty good iOS tablet, equipped with a great performance 1 GHz Dual-Core processing unit, a big 7.9-inches capacitive display, and 2 cameras, a 5 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera. Great! That's it? Not at all, it's just the introduction of a detailed review.

Regarding its construction materials, the iPad mini is mostly made with Aluminium, which gives it a high quality look. Apple is offering this tablet in two different colors, black and white. While this device is only 7.87 inches long, it is able to fit a a 7.9 inches screen. This tablet is incredibly thin and practical, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. This device feels much lighter than what you would expect from a device like this.

This tablet has a good 768 x 1024 7.9" display, making everything look quite vivid. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Apple sells the iPad mini with a Apple A5 system chip, holding a good performance Dual-Core processing unit speeding at 1 gigahertz and 512 MB RAM. Graphic intensive applications generally uses lots of processor cycles, so it has a PowerVR SGX543 MP2 graphics processing unit running at 200 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. A good point of this tablet is its 64 GB astonishing internal storage and though it doesn't include an SD card slot, it is still enough to store tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This tablet provides wifi connection (and it can share it with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance connection type and also HSPA+ data connection, a bit slower 4G technology or the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. The iPad mini can also shoot videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 fps. This camera also counts with lots of useful features: auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, geo tagging and time lapse video.

This tablet comes with a large 4440 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. An issue to evaluate is that the Apple iPad mini's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to live shorter, even though with this big battery you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes an issue.

This device also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), 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.

The Apple iPad mini costs 320 dollars, which is quite the same as other same level devices. No matter whether you are looking for a gaming tablet, want it mainly for social networks or need this tablet for work, this device is definitely the right choice for you. The iPad mini includes USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
