The portable mini tablet exhibits great performance. It works on the best OS. Playing games and watching videos are more exciting than ever. The loud speakers are very loud and clear. Great camera with very good features you ll get very crip looking details when zoomed. The touch ID feature avails good security to the device.
The battery backup is great it gives good backup both on wi-fi and cellular. If it is provided with voice calling it would be a better device. It is a bit dissatisfaction that it comes with the outdated A7 chip instead of A8X.But the difference is very minor and really not a big deal. The NFS game runs very smooth the graphics run very fast and they appear very detail.
The design is most similar like iPad mini 2 the only edition here is Touch ID feature. It consists of retina display which is very advanced and thin and feels touching real icons. The color reproduction is good and same as its predecessors. But it is more glossier and the glare is high in sunlight making impossible to see.
The OS provides very simplistic operation and easy to move around. 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited bench mark is 10699.ON Geekbench 3 it scored 2481.It is a bit slower than Ipad Air 2.It has one of the long life batteries backup. The battery backup is more while running on wi fi than compared on the cellular.
I prefer to buy this mini tablet because it just comes in handy and more convenient with its light weight and ultra thin glossy design. The performance is also great. Especially the display has such a great resolution looking vibrant. If you are interested in small display tabs just buy it, no draw backs in particular. Good device.
