I like the size of this iPad Mini and I like the Retina screen, very clear and crisp. It's much much better than my old iPad 2. With the mini, I am able to read everything clear on it and watch video on it with no problems. Playing games, watching video, surfing the web, and so on is much smoother and easier, thanks to it's new processor. No delays at all, quite speedy. Wifi speed is much faster than before.

Only downside is memory size. I mean I thought Apple would increase their size over time without changing the price. I got a 32gb which is ok. Was hoping Apple change new line-up in this order: 32, 64, 128, 192. 16gb is simply not enough to hold most of the great Apps that Apple offer. So, I must take one star with me.

Sleek, stylish, attractive, etc., and it is very useful. I bought it primarily to connect my Fujifilm XT-1 camera to take photos from the iPad and to send photos from camera to iPad. Also I plan to use it for general photo display for myself, family, and friends.

I suppose iPhone users are at ease with it, but for those of us who don't have iPhones (or other smart phones), it is not at all intuitive--yes there are a few of us who don't have smart phones. It does not work at all like a computer: no home page for Safari, no easy way to close a folder or app, etc.

Also, it is pricey. Should it cost that much? No, certainly not.

Overall, I would say it is useful for a lot of people, but not something you really need. Were it not for my camera connection I would not have bought it.

        Not dissapointed in the Mini 3 ipad. Apple just works as you expect it should. I did not give it a 5 Star because of reflection glair outside. I hope Apple addresses this issue with a anti glair built in screen. Otherwise Im very happy and recomend this product

          This is a great "always around" reading, communication, study and entertainment device.
          The form factor and size are just right: not too small for reading, not to big for always carrying with you.

                                I bought this to replace my 1st generation iPad. I love the smaller size of the mini. It's great for reading, email, Facebook, etc. I don't miss the larger sized screen at all.

                                I had a nexus 7 which was limping, lagging, and even had a dead pixel. I did like it very much but this tablet is a huge step up for me! The display size is perfect, not too big and not too small. I love the iOS 8 experience a lot more than the Android OS. Though the colors could be a bit better, and they should add another speaker, I would still highly recommend it!

                                  I bought this I pad as an upgrade for the Ipad mini 1.
                                  This is a huge hardware upgrade. Much better processor, Retina screen.
                                  It is like an Ipad mini 3 without the fingerprint scanner.
                                  I found it not worth spending the extra money on the Ipad mini 3.

                                    This is my second iPad mini - the first was stolen a few months after I bought it.I do not use it for gaming, watching movies, music or email, for the most part, but I have a library on it - with both books and magazines - very easy to read, light, and portable. And since I have a Macbook and iPhone, very familiar.
