The iPad Mini (2nd gen) is 4G compatible. Most of the other comparable spec tablets that are a similar age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are not 4G compatible.
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are not 3G compatible.

1 Reason Against
Very Small Screen Size
With a screen size of only 7.9 inches, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a quite small screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers of this type and age. Across all the tablets that were released more than two years ago the screen sizes range from 7.8" to 9.7", and the average screen size is 8.6".
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 7.9" tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) which has better reviews.
If this tablet screen size is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Air ($548.00) (9.7") which also has a higher rating.

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the iPad Mini (3rd gen) (128GB), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen) (128GB) both from Apple.

If you want a tablet with more processor cores then you might want to consider the Gigaset QV830 (4 processor cores).
