Let's Test Ipad Mini

By: Cathrine Mckay

If Apple is known for anything, it is the design. The iPod was the flagship piece of this design which ranges iPhone and iPad have been inspired.

The iPad Mini is a worthy addition to the range. It sports a 7.9 inch screen with the same 4:3 aspect ratio as the original iPad. We would have preferred a longer shelf is narrower for easier handling.

For starters, the width makes it ideal for eBook reading when coupled with the extreme lightness of the tablet. The thickness is 7.2 mm and it weighs only 308g for the Wi-Fi Version

As with other iPads, buttons are kept to a minimum thanks to a single home button on the front.The right side houses the volume knob and a switch customizable.

Screen 7.9 inch IPS LCD offers a resolution of 1024x768 pixels and a pixel density of 163 pixels per inch. The display is sharper than the original iPad and iPad 2, but it is worse than the Google Nexus 7 by Asus or Amazon Kindle Fire. The clarity is simply not competitive with pixels discernible, especially when reading text end. Brightness is another story. With an incredibly bright screen, the colors look rich, readability outdoors is better than the competition and the viewing angles are excellent.

iOS 6 is back. This means that the iPad is not different from other iPad that we have come to know, and for some of us love. While everything is well known, it is extremely refreshing to use iPad applications on a device with one hand.

As a reminder for those who have not used iOS before, the main user interface consists of a 4x5 grid of your applications. These can be laminated and horizontally organized into folders. The left screen is composed of a universal search bar that allows you to search your apps, contacts, Wikipedia or on the Web. There is also a notification bar at the top which can be slid down.

What really distinguishes iOS competition is the choice application, with a greater number of applications optimized for tablets than any other operating system. The Mini iPad takes full advantage of them. The pre-installed applications like iTunes, Podcasts, iBooks, Notes and Reminders look great and are also very easy to use. All applications we tested, maintained their functionality, providing a smooth experience ever seen on Android counterparts.

The iPad Mini has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with f/2.4 lens and no flash. The photos are taken quickly and the detail is right, but there are some problems. With an exhibition centered around your focal point on the iPad Mini-exposed photos with a focal point and dark under-exposed photos with a focal point of light.

While other Android or Windows Phone devices could allow some form of compensation for these shortcomings, the menu of the camera does not allow iOS. For a closer look at the results, just click on the images below. Videos are captured in full HD and is quite good with good lighting. The touch focus is a delight and the detail is right. We can just blame the poor performance during night use since no video light can remedy this situation. Similarly, the positioning of the camera is so close to the angle of the iPad Mini that the finger can be located in the field, as you'll see in the video below.
