Awesome Tablet!

Coconut00 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I have owned the Mini 4 for around two months and I have been loving it. Unlike the Mini 3 which was barely an upgrade over the Mini 2 this one is very good and I even bought the 64 GB version for $400 at Best Buy.
I would fully recommend this device especially since Best Buy sometimes has it at $100 off. The only other devices I could recommend are the iPad Air 2(slightly more powerful) and the Mini 2(cheaper, 16 GB going for $200 on Best Buy).

Awesome build quality. Extremely thin and light. Design might be a bit repetitive for someone who has owned iPads before but this is my first one so I like it.

Most likely the only pro of a 4:3 tablet is reading and web browsing
Multimedia

Excellent for Multimedia, except for the 4:3 screen.
Camera

When it comes to tablets, I only care about the front camera since I find people taking photos with them ridiculous. The front camera is average at day, bad at night

The display of the Mini 4 is finally as good as the bigger iPads (well maybe not the iPad Pro 9.7 but that is a newer device). I still would prefer if it were 16:9 and SAMOLED but it is quite good for an LCD and on par with the AIr 2. I compared my iPad's screen to the one on a friend's Mini 2 and the differences in color were big.
Battery
10.0
Lasts me all day (from 6 am to 6 pm) and I have never gotten home with less than 65%. Standby time is amazing. I opened Bad Piggies, left the tablet to do something else and when I used it again 12 hours after this, the battery was at 100% (obviously not charging) and Bad Piggies did not reload.

Pros

  • Fast
  • Excellent Build quality
  • Very good display for an LCD
  • iOS updates for many years
  • Apps are better than on Android tablets
  • Battery is fantastic

Cons

  • Weird iOS stutters
  • Front Camera isn't good
