  • iPad Mini with Retina Display review: Pricey, mighty Retina Mini is best small tablet yet

    iPad Mini with Retina iPad Mini with Retina

    The Good The iPad Mini with Retina Display adds an excellent high-resolution display that rivals the iPad Air's, a far faster A7 processor, and tops it off with improved Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, with battery life that's as good or better than in last year's Mini.

    The Bad A starting price of ₹49,100 for 128 GB places it well above the small-tablet competition, and adding more storage or LTE makes it even more expensive. It lacks the innovative Touch ID fingerprint sensor that the iPhone 5S sports.

    The Bottom Line The new iPad Mini somehow shrinks down the iPad Air into an even more compact package, sacrificing nearly nothing. It's more expensive than before, but it's also the perfect smaller tablet.

    The new iPad Mini has a 2,048x1,526-pixel Retina Display that's exactly the same resolution as the larger iPad, and a far faster 64-bit A7 CPU that parallels what's in the iPhone 5S and iPad Air, plus that M7 co-processor. In fact, you could easily call the iPad Mini with Retina Display a shrunken-down clone of the new iPad Air
    With the screen and spec caveats of last year's Mini, it presented a real compromise compared with the big iPad of the time. This year? There aren't really any technology drawbacks at all compared with what you get in the full-size iPad, except for a bit of reduction in screen quality and overall system speed, but trust us: the Retina Mini's really like a tiny Air. Mainly, it comes down to a size preference, and value proposition. And, whether you need to pay up for a tablet this powerful.

    Design: A tiny bit heavier and thicker...but you'd never notice
    If you pick up the new Mini, it feels a lot like the old Mini. The differences become clear if you look closely, but you'd never know from a distance.

    The Mini comes in two colors: white-and-silver looks the same as last year, but the black-and-slate model has been subtly adjusted to "space gray," using the same lighter-metal back as the iPhone 5S and iPad Air.

     

     

     

    Mini and Retina Mini. Can you tell the difference?

    Other than that, nothing's really changed in the iPad Mini's form. It has the same basic compact design as last year, which the iPad Air now also adopts: thin side bezels, a flat back, and a generally wafer-thin, metal-and-glass look. While it's technically a bit heavier than the older model -- 0.3mm in thickness, and a 23-gram difference for the Wi-Fi version, putting it at 0.73 or 0.75 pound, respectively -- but you'd never know from holding it. Side by side with last year's Mini, it's nearly indistinguishable.

     

    And, it's still that same compact-but-not-quite-pocket-size form (unless you have very large, deep pockets). But, it's that extra size that gives it a huge edge over smaller tablets for running larger iPad apps in semi-miniature.

    The Mini was a perfect 10 for its form: why change it? The new Mini, wisely, barely alters the equation.

    Retina Display: Worth the wait?

    Yes. Without a doubt, if you're a big reader, the massive jump in screen resolution is the most welcome change on this Mini. But what's most impressive, and hard to truly appreciate at times, is that there's no drop-off in pixels in the smaller screen size compared with on the Air. And, the Retina Display already looked good on the Air's 9.7-inch display.

    It's a big improvement, indeed. Other 7-inch tablets routinely hit 1080p or better resolution, such as the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX , with 1,920x1,200-pixel resolutions and 323 pixels per inch. The Mini's 2,048x1,536 resolution amounts to 326 pixels per inch, offering even better pixel density over a larger amount of screen real estate. And the Mini's screen is 7.9 inches with a closer-to-square 4x3 aspect ratio -- not the 7-inch wide-screen form factor of the aforementioned Google and Amazon tablets.

    DeviceScreen                                               sizeAspect                                  ratioResolution

    Apple iPad Mini (2012)                                7.9 inches                                   4:3 1,024x768 (168ppi)
    Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display             7.9 inches                                   4:3 2,048x1,536 (326ppi)
    Google Nexus 7 (2013)                                7 inches                                     16:10 1,920x1,200 (323ppi)
    Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7                          7 inches                                     16:10 1,920x1,200 (323ppi)

    But, it's a surprisingly subtle upgrade from a distance. Put the non-Retina and Retina models side by side, and it's hard to tell them apart. Get closer, and you'll see the difference right away: finer resolution, and even color quality, are improved.

     

    When looking at photos or reading books or text-heavy documents, you'll see the difference. Like the iPhone's leap to Retina, or the iPad's, it's a level of detail you'll miss after you get used to it, rather than one you'll notice right away.

    Text: Retina vs. non-Retina, magnified.

    It's more like a focal adjustment, when reading text.

    Videos look great, too, but the smaller screen size and extra letterboxing mean wide-screen movies are still pretty small. I tried out "Cloud Atlas," and the movie at least looked extra-sharp, but the viewing space on a Mini can get cramped.

    Screen comparison, clockwise from top left: Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HDX, iPad Mini Retina, iPad Air.

    Retina on the Mini vs. the Air and other tablets: A bit of a drop-off

    The Retina Display iPad Mini has a screen resolution that matches the iPad Air's: 2,048x1,536. In 7.9 inches, it's a denser pixel-per-inch resolution. Does that matter? On both iPads, you'd have to take out a jeweler's loupe to see the actual pixels with your own eye. Text on both looks crisp and clean from nearly any distance.

    Does that matter? Well, if you want the best possible display for photos, games, and movies, then yes. But, the Retina Mini's crisp, bright display still looks awfully good for just about everything, and unless you're comparing photos or icons side-by-side, you probably won't miss that lost saturation.

    What else is new?

    The Retina Mini has a 64-bit A7 processor, just like the iPhone 5S and iPad Air. It also has an M7 co-processor, which helps track motion and could be used for motion-aware apps and to reduce strain on battery life. It has a better front-facing camera than the last Mini, an improved MIMO Wi-Fi antenna (but no 802.11ac wireless), and improved LTE connectivity internationally for LTE models, plus an extra microphone on the back that auto adjusts and emphasizes environmental audio based on whether you're using the rear- or front-facing camera (for clearer FaceTime calls, for instance).

    In a lot of ways, the Retina Mini is much like the iPhone 5S, except it lacks a fingerprint-sensing Touch ID home button; this year's iPad home button still has a square on it, and won't do anything with your fingerprint except collect a slight smudge. Not having Touch ID is a bit of a letdown, but it would have been an utter luxury on a small tablet like this.
    Performance: Similar to Air, and a huge leap over last year's Mini
    If you're a gamer or a serious user of apps like video-editing or media-rich programs, you'll notice gigantic speed boost on the Mini, thanks to its leap from an A5 last year to an A7 this year. Applications that hiccuped before now run smoothly; multitasking and high-end, demanding tasks like graphics rendering, video editing, and the like are effortless.

    Actually, it turns out, the A7 processor on the Retina Mini according to Geekbench 3 tests isn't exactly the same as the iPad Air's: it's 1.29GHz, the same as the iPhone 5S processor, while the 1.39GHz A7 on the iPad Air is a little faster. The new iPad Mini has twice the RAM of the last Mini: 1GB to 512MB, but the same as the Air.

    So, maybe it's not too surprising to see the Mini's specs in such a small form, since the even smaller iPhone 5S managed a similar feat. But the Retina Mini is an impressively fast little tablet by any measure.

    Moving up to a Retina Mini over the previous Mini, however, you will have to suffer increased download sizes: apps, and movies, and digital magazines all take up more space in their Retina-optimized forms. "Cloud Atlas," while long, was a 6.2GB download. You might want to consider a bump up to at least 32GB when getting a Retina Mini.

    Wireless: A big step up for Wi-Fi and global LTE
    Apple's newest iPads certainly make it tempting. Despite being offered for multiple carriers on Apple's site, all the LTE iPads are actually identical and unlocked: you can SIM-swap across carriers and overseas to your heart's content. Affording pay-as-you-go LTE or folding it into a family device plan isn't as affordable as it should be.

    The Wi-Fi antennas have also gotten an upgrade to MIMO technology, just like the iPad Air. MIMO promises better throughput, and better range with dual antennas.

    Gaming: The perfect middle ground

    The iPhone's handheld design feels good for screen-tapping arcade games, but it's got a small screen. The iPad Air is great for games, but it's better for larger-scale board games and tap-to-move strategy titles. The Mini is the perfect in-between. Now that its graphics have taken a serious step up, it's also capable of playing anything on the App Store without a hitch.

    Infinity Blade III, Riptide GP2, and others look fantastic. And, with iOS game controllers on the horizon, the Mini could be an intriguing fit for a controller case/accessory.
    iOS 7, and all the free iWork/iLife apps
    Apple's new iOS devices come with a free suite of iWork and iLife software: iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Together, they comprise an excellent set of tools to do a lot of things on the go. These apps run very well on the Mini's 7.9-inch screen.

    On the iPhone, things can get cramped. The Mini manages it all as a perfect middle ground: not too cramped, but the iPad Air offers up larger icons and menus.

    iOS 7 comes preinstalled, of course, and on the iPad, iOS 7 really isn't much different than on the iPhone. Multitasking is easier than before, but it's still not a split-screen affair: instead, you double-tap and tap an icon to hop over to another program. Some applications run simultaneously, but if you open up too many, some will suspend and restart automatically.

    Battery life Battery life

    Battery life 
    Here's some good and somewhat surprising news: the iPad Mini's battery life looks to be as good as the iPad Air's. Our first battery-test run was eye-popping: 14 hours and 14 minutes of video playback, beating Apple's claim of 10 hours. The Air lasted 13.2 hours, while last year's iPad Mini ran for 12.1. Stay tuned for additional battery tests and our final, official number, but early gains are very promising.

    I used the Retina Mini while browsing, playing games, installing apps, and more, while using LTE as well, and found I could get through a whole day with battery to spare.

    A larger internal battery, more powerful display, and faster processor mean a bigger power brick: the included AC wall-plug is now a 10-watt unit, versus the iPhone-size 5-watt mini-plug. Charging up using the included charger takes about the same time as last year's Mini with its charger, all things considered.

    The iPad Mini has already been designed to truly do a lot of tasks equally as well as a larger-size iPad, and that Retina Display makes it a better e-reader, Web browser, and photo viewer. But its price seems to acknowledge its versatility. And, while it's ₹6,000 less than an iPad Air for the same specs and promised battery life, some people will inevitably consider paying up just for a physically larger screen on the Air, even at the same resolution.

    Air or Retina Mini: Only a matter of price and screen size?

    So, indeed, there are a wide range of Android -- and even Windows -- tablets that could be classified as offering "more bang for the buck." But only the iPad will deliver iOS , along with the relative advantages and refinements of that app ecosystem -- a double advantage for anyone who's already an iPhone or Mac user.

    Indeed, you're probably here because you've already looked past those competing tablets, and have held out for the new iPads. But now that they're both here, the question is: which should you get? The Mini certainly presents an awfully tempting proposition, offering a better overall value for pure performance and storage for the dollar. The Mini has a few small drawbacks: it's a little bit slower, and has a display that, based on our tests, is a little less perfect than the iPad Air. These differences are minute compared to the bigger differences: the Retina Mini is smaller, and it's less expensive. That will be an advantage to many, but keep in mind that anyone looking for a laptop alternative is probably better off with the Air -- just don't expect it to fully replace a laptop for every single type of use.

    Conclusion: Best in class

    The one thing the Mini isn't? Cheap. If affordability is your game (and really, who doesn't want an affordable gadget), Android, Windows, and othertablets offer far more budget-friendly alternatives.

    But, if you want a small tablet with no limitations, that can run the best gamut of high-end apps, display productivity-type applications in a larger amount of screen space, and play games amazingly, the iPad Mini with Retina Display is hands-down the way to go. It's a better primary tablet, while those affordable competitors make good secondary tablets.

    Plenty of phone-makers have been delving into "mega"-size 6-inch "phablets." Apple has no phablet, but the new Mini comes closest to offering that same large-screen versatility.
