What exactly are the latest iPad Mini’s specifications, that make tablet buyers want to buy it? Yes, we already know that the Mini is good to have because of its small size, light body and dashing looks. But what exactly are the iPad Mini’s specs that make this Apple tablet deserving of its brand and its following?
First, the most important of iPad Mini specs is the processor and memory this tablet carries. The latest iPad Mini runs on a dual core 1Gig central processing unit with 512 MB of RAM. This means that it uses the same processor and memory as the iPad 2 so it scores equal with it, based on overall performance. This also means that the fourth generation iPad scores better in terms of technical performance, but for the average day to day user, this flaw would not really matter.
After all, these iPad Mini specs make the tablet perform as well as one would expect and the relative flaw in performance is actually not really noticeable to the average user. Because of this, the iPad Mini can run just a bit slower on some applications but expect most applications to be up and running after a second or two.
This one or two seconds does not matter much especially when all you want is to use the tablet comfortably and efficiently and if you do not intend to time it with your stopwatch each time you turn the device on.
Simply put, the iPad Mini specs allow the device to be extra efficient and reliable for general user activities like surfing the web. It can, of course, be very responsive to even the lightest of touches, taps and swipes. It may not be the highest ranking Apple iPad in terms of performance, but it can be said, that the iPad Mini specs still make the tablet worth much more than the asking price.
When talking about iPad Mini specs for performance, one feature must be tested and compared – battery life. This is where the latest iPadMini is ahead of its competitors. In tests and in actual user experience, the iPad Mini has an astounding 12:43 battery life. It outperforms the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 by 40+ minutes and even the Google Nexus by about 3 hours in battery performance. Compared to other iPad tablets in the market now, the iPad Mini still ranks number one in terms of battery reliability.
Another thing that needs to be mentioned when reviewing iPad Mini specs is its connector. The connector is located on the bottom part of the tablet. Similar to the iPhone 5, the Lightning connector of the Mini is flanked by 2 rows of holes which are actually drilled onto the device so reasonable sound volume can be heard.
This unique feature makes the iPad Mini powerful in sound, making it a great device not just for communications but also for entertainment. Many are even surprised because this – among many other iPad Mini specs – make it worth the price especially since it is rounded up as a small neat package.
