Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Apple released the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.
We compared this tablet computer to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper; or the Apple iPad Air ($792.83) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Average Internal Storage Capacity
With an internal storage capacity of 32 gigabytes, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a relatively average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablets that were launched around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
Alternative 32GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available that you might also want to consider include the iPad Air ($333.49), or the iPad Air ($209.00) both from Apple which has a better Rating.
+4 Other reasons
Average Rear Camera Resolution
With a rear camera resolution of 5 megapixels, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a pretty typical rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
There are a number of other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available that you might also want to consider including the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper; or the Apple iPad Air ($792.83) which has a better Rating.
Two Processor Cores
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has two processor cores which is average compared to the other 22 A7 processor tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.
We compared all the other 2 processor core tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think a cheaper tablet such as the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) or you might consider a better rated tablet such as the Apple iPad Air ($792.83) are also worth considering.
If you are looking for a tablet computer with more processor cores then you might also want to look at the HP Slate 8 (4 processor cores) which is also cheaper.
Average Screen Size
The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a relatively average screen size (7.9 inches) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were released around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
We compared this tablet to all the other 7.9" tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this Apple tablet screen size is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Air ($209.00) (9.7") which also has a higher Rating.
