iPad mini, in-depth analysis, complete review of the iPad mini

The iPad mini is here. The Californian firm Apple has just release one of the most anticipated devices of recent years. Rumored to satiety, today we are able to analyze their data sheet. A sheet full of news that will appeal especially to those who were looking for a new device, away from the league of 10 inches. Yes, meeting the forecasts so far we referred, the mini iPad will feature a 7.9 inch screen, palindrome if we remember the inches that keep all generations of iPad: 9.7 inches. This time, Apple also opted for a dual-core processor, which ensures performance roughly in line with the line that the firm has continued to date, combining those capabilities with high performance in the area of connectivity.

Yes, in addition to supporting networks LTE (in some markets, of course), the iPad mini features compatibility - as necessary as water - as Wifi via 802.11 a / ​​b / g / n. The functions remain the most acclaimed features of this iPad . Beyond these issues, which we discuss in depth in this analysis, we have to mention your main iSight camera of five megapixels, useful for capturing snapshots of very good quality, and its connector Lightning (faithful to the last generation iPhone , known as iPhone 5 ) and conservation of a maximum range of 10 hours. Feel like to know the rest of technical performance? Here we go!

Design and Display

How could it be otherwise, the iPad mini retains a design very similar to his older brothers, iPad generations that have now come to the fore. See, however, that their appearance is very different when compared with other 9.7-inch devices. And for the occasion, here is the reason for its name, the mini iPad comes with a screen of 7.9 inches. The main objective of Apple, this time, has been to reduce the size of one of its star products, allowing - in short - that the piece can be held with one hand by the user. Is 23% thinner and weighs 53% less, so it seems that for the time the Apple team has had to work from scratch.

Its dimensions are 20 x 13.47 x 0.72 inches and a weight of 312 grams for the 3G + WiFi version and 308 grams for only including Wifi. The display, in this case, is one of its major elements. It is small, but in principle it is a good size to run those applications most important, check email, surf or read. Its size is 7.9 inches (diagonal) working with IPS technology. Its resolution is 1,024 x 768 at 163 pixels per inch. This is a screen, but bright light, which indicates that despite having reduced size has not lost its quality. Keep in mind, however, that the company wanted to make Apple largest screen. Up to 35% with respect to the screen of a conventional seven-inch tablet. Finally, it should be noted that the iPad mini panel has special technology that allows to distinguish whether we are supporting your finger on the screen or if you really want to execute an action. The display incorporates a cover system or oleophobic anti-fingerprint protection, ideal for users more scrupulous.

Finally and finishing on the design issues, it is interesting to note that we have worked on a unibody enclosure, which would be the same for different body parts. The battery is integrated into a single pill rather thin and the design of the camera has been reduced in order to better integrate into the final architecture of the device.

The iPad mini had to be skilled in connectivity. A Apple had no other. In principle, we can state that the international version of the device operates on GSM / EDGE (850, 900, 1,800 and 1,900 MHz) MTS / HSPA + / DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1,900 and 2,100 MHz) and LTE (bands 4 and 17). For specific versions should be consulted directly on the Apple website to see if the issue is adapted to the current technology in your country. In any case, we can say that the iPad mini will be sold in Spain is compatible with 3G networks (in the case of the version equipped for mobile networks) and wireless 802.11 a / ​​b / g / n , in all cases. It must be said also that as is traditional in Apple products, the iPad mini get along with wireless Bluetooth 4.0 , basic and fundamental tool for sharing files between devices. The issue with 3G also has support GPS and GLONASS attended that allow us to work with applications that require location or use the navigation functions, which are also important for those who walk all day between maps, car, roads and cities. All versions incorporate a digital compass.

In the section on physical connections we will face some developments in this case and not so. And is that the iPad mini has the new connection Lightning (eight pins) that we saw in the iPhone 5 and that radically changes the standard 30-pin integrated in all generations of devices submitted until last September. Thus, if you have to purchase antique accessories Lightning adapter, a piece which in principle should be compatible with all devices of old, though some users have said the opposite. Finally, the iPad is targeted mini headphone jack 3.5 mm stereo, speaker and microphone. For 3G + Wifi version, the tablet also has a SIM card slot Nano (3G + Wifi).

The camera is one of its most important elements. And is that many users appreciate this element above all things. This time, Apple has introduced an iPad mini with five megapixel camera, which can take photos of a certain quality. The same camera is capable to record HD video FullHD (1080p). On its additional features could talk at length.

Memory, processor and operating system

As each time, Apple introduced the iPad mini in three different modes, depending on the memory of each device user with: 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB. This is the space that the iPad owner must play to save your content, knowing that you have the iCloud service to store files and access them from any other device and of course, from anywhere. The RAM, indispensable to evaluate the performance by the processor is 512 MB. It is, as you can see, a discrete potential. Yes, for the occasion, Apple has enabled this iPad mini processor dual core A5, in principle sufficient to meet more than acceptable performance. The tablet does not incorporate, as is traditional in Apple, no slot for memory expansion of user, which is not anything new.

It was clear that the iPad Mini would start functioning as standard with the new edition of its operating system, iOS 6. Do not forget that since its introduction, version 6 of this platform has presented numerous problems outlined by the users: energy leaks, desynchronization of agenda-calendar, etc.. It is hoped that a new edition of this platform can correct these failures and is definitely built soon, in this iPad, as in other devices that already work with iOS 6.

In the section on applications should be differentiated, clearly, those native applications from those that can be installed retrospectively by the user to decide taking into account their tastes and needs.
