Apple iPad Air 2 vs Apple iPad mini 3
Bigger battery, better battery life. It’s longer with the iPad Air 2.
Due to its larger capacity battery, the iPad Air 2 naturally benefits from having a longer battery life. No doubt, the two are capable of pushing through a solid one-day of normal, but there’s still more juice left in the tank with the iPad Air 2 as we’re readying for bed. In our battery benchmark test, we’re reaffirmed to the obvious, seeing that the iPad Air 2 reaches a mark of 7 hours and 27 minutes – while the iPad mini 3 chimes in at a decent 6 hours and 53 minutes.
Battery life (hours) Higher is better
Apple iPad Air 2 7h 27 min (Good)
Apple iPad mini 3 6h 53 min (Average)
Separated by only $100, it’s really tough for us to recommend going with the iPad mini 3 – even though it’s the cheaper of the two models, at $399. It’s even tougher to swallow knowing that it doesn’t see any major improvements, or differences, with its own predecessor. Flipping it around, the $500 cost of the iPad Air 2 makes plenty of sense, since it’s boasting the better internals and performance. At the same time, we have to point out that the iPad Air 2’s larger size makes it more ideal for certain things – such as typing up documents, surfing the web, and watching videos. And best of all, it’s incredibly thin with its construction! Unless you prefer the more compact size of the iPad mini 3, don’t waste your money picking it up knowing that the iPad Air 2 is without question the superior tablet.
