4.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded from original mini, November 30, 2013
This review is from: Apple iPad mini with Retina Display ME278LL/A (64GB, Wi-Fi, Black with Space Gray) OLD VERSION (Personal Computers)
Length:: 0:43 Mins

I am writing this as an upgraded view not as a first time iPad buyer. i got the 64GB version but i did also post this review on the 16 and 32 versions because the 64gb version was nit listed for sale here until just recently. i bought the black, i had the white. i went black because as beautiful as the white is i found myself looking at the bezile often. the bright white distracted me from the screen sometimes. the bezel fades out of view when black and i find myself seeing more of what is on the screen.

the retina display is a huge upgrade. i have corrective lenses and need 1.25 reading glasses. reading all text on the retina is worth the upgrade for me. while i do not have an iPad to compare the color gamut i can say that i think the colors are fine. the display is a worthwhile upgrade consideration. as much of an improvement the screen is the processor is an even bigger improvement. i use to see load time of a game called Field Runner2 HD (there is a free version too) of 40 seconds or so, the new mini loads twice as fast (see video review). i wish i took a video of the two side by side before i sent my old one to a friend. it was amazing how much faster the new iPad loads games.

i would like to say the iPad mini should have had the fingerprint scanner and all Apple products are overdue for built in wireless charging. still this is a really nice product and i am glad i spent the money on the upgrade.

PS, looks like they consolidated the reviews of other versions so that is why you see me on here more than once, regrets.

actually this is not a internet game run via app. it's a game the runs on the iPad. having upgraded my iPad and not upgraded my wifi i am confident that the iPad is what improved.

I think it is worth emphasizing for everybody that this iPad Mini (2) will arrrive with an expired typical one-year warranty from Apple. So you won't be able to repair the iPad for free once the 15-day no-questions return policy from Amazon expires. I just received mine, verified the warranty online and it is expired, as in other cases.

Even if the box looked new, the product looks perfect externally (no scratches) and all the items were tagged as "new", the product is obviously used (i.e. the warranty was activated more than a year ago).

my review is of the product, not the seller. products sold new have a warranty the day it was purchased. sounds like you need to return to this seller and buy form someones else. then maybe a product review. FYI Amazon does have a seller review option.
