Disagree, mine runs about the same. As for charging time, it's always been slow, but when you factor in how long the battery lasts, it's not a problem.

Wish the test also included Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. It's one of Android tablets that has the longest battery life (12 hours of browsing on Honeycomb). Plus, the iPad Mini look pretty similar to it. But overall.. God job, apple!. IOS devices are known for it's great battery life.

I use my Ipad Mini (Ipad 2 before my recent upgrade) and while my normal usage is slightly lower with my mini then my ipad 2, I have also used an android tablet for work doing the same job and have seen little reason to swap over to the android market. Ever since I swapped over to Apple from the android market I can bring my work home with me on my ipad mini and seamlessly move it over to my Mac or mirror it to my apple T.V. So aside from a better battery life functionality is and ease of use is way better. I also recently played around with the microcraps windows 8 tablet and no surprise that they have not enhanced their taste in quality. (U.S. Military and part time student going towards my Software Engineering degree) If you find yourselves offended, I would apologize but I don't care!!!

People just suck this stuff up. In my searching I find many different scores and some are just looping vid with wifi and the scores are so much different. I am sure the OS has allot to play in all this like on my mini alone.. I am thinking it has some bug in wifi for it drains fast and so far everyone I have tried. Asus TF700.. looping vid wifi just over 9h easy. Now I guess surfing for 9h also would make a difference but.. I did MY real world..

You get an idea here no more no less and still dont go by what others say not even me. If you like the product make sure you can return it 1st and go buy it your self. The review might have said it was bad yet you just loved it.

Keep looking up JC
