We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products. We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable.
Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products. The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability. The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.
We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability. Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies. A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
You can detach the keyboard of your device and use the screen as a tablet. Detaching the keyboard makes the device lighter and gives you the possibility to switch easily between laptop-mode and tablet-mode. The keyboard is included when buying the device. The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water. Display 1. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs.
It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels. Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch PPI on the screen.
A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience. The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering less noise and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
Damage-resistant glass such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force. This helps to reduce the reflection from your device. Compared to standard dynamic range SDR video, HDR10 video has greater contrast and color depth, resulting in more realistic images.
Performance 1. The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device. RAM 0. Random-access memory RAM is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
CPU speed 2 x 1GHz. The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores processing units. It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores. The device has a standard memory slot such as an SD or micro SD card slot that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance. It also allows you to run bit apps.
The maximum amount of external storage memory supported by the the device. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology. Uses big. Using big. LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
Cameras 1. The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

The slate-colored back panel of the first-generation iPad Mini was discontinued in favor of "space grey", a black color, and the white color still remains. Although the second-generation iPad Mini inherits hardware components from the iPhone 5S , such as its bit Apple A7 system-on-chip and Apple M7 motion processor, it uses the same home button as its predecessor and therefore does not support the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
It also includes a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1. As with all previous generations of iPad hardware, there are four buttons and one switch on the second-generation iPad Mini. The display responds to other sensors: an ambient light sensor to adjust screen brightness and a 3-axis accelerometer to sense orientation and switch between portrait and landscape modes. Unlike the iPhone and iPod Touch 's built-in applications, which work in three orientations portrait, landscape-left and landscape-right , the iPad's built-in applications support screen rotation in all four orientations, including upside-down.
Consequently, the device has no intrinsic "native" orientation; only the relative position of the home button changes. The audio playback of the second-generation iPad Mini is in stereo with two speakers located on either side of the lightning connector. The second-generation iPad Mini is available with 16, 32, 64 or GB [a] of internal flash memory , with no expansion option.
Apple sells a "camera connection kit" with an SD card reader, but it can only be used to transfer photos and videos. The tablet is also manufactured either with or without the capability to communicate over a cellular network. A and B. Additionally, one variant also supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25 and 26 while the other variant supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 18, 19, 20 and TD-LTE bands 38, 39 and Apple's ability to handle many different bands in one device allowed it to offer, for the first time, a single iPad variant which supports all the cellular bands and technologies deployed by all the major North American wireless providers at the time of the device's introduction.
Beavis praises the Retina display and A7 chip's performance, and states that its "design is still the best in the tablet category. He writes: "The iPad Mini 2 is our favorite tablet of From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Tablet computer made by Apple — Wi-Fi Source: Apple Newsroom Archive.
