iPad Mini 4

  The iPad Mini 4 looks it seems to duplicate the functions of the iPad Air 2 but it comes in a smaller version ( 7.9 inch display ). It has been upgraded with a better CPU, 2GB of RAM, laminated display and the body is slimmer than it’s predecessor the iPad Mini 3. This is a small media apparatus ,but it functions well. The price of this iPad starts at $400.00 for the unit that comes with WI-Fi. The starting price for the unit that carrie Wi-Fi and  cellular activity cost $530.00.. These are the following specifications: OS – iOS 9, Screen Size – 7.9 inches, Screen Resolution – 2048 x 1536 
( 326ppi ), Display – LED Multi-touch, CPU 64-Bit Apple A8, Coprocessor – M8 motion, Internal Storage –  16GB/64GB/128GB,  Rear Camera –8MP Isight camera ( autofocus, f/2. Aperture, Five-element lens,  Hybrid filter, Backside illumination, Improved face detection, Exposure control, Panorama up to 43MP, Burst mode, Tap to focus, Photo geotagging, Timer mode ), Front Camera 1.2 MP (  FaceTime  f/22 aperture, 720 HD video recording, Backside illumination, Auto HDR photos and videos, Improved face detection, Burst mode, Exposure control, Timer mode ) Bluetooth 4.2,  WI-FI802.11 a/b/g/n/ac; dual channel ( 2.4GHz and 5GHz ); HT80 with MIMO. It alco comes with an Assisted GPS and GLONASS, Sensors ( Touch ID, three axis gyroscope, Acceloremeter, Barometer, Ambient light sensor. There is a fingerprint touch ID. The height is 203.2 mm. The width is 134.8 mm. It has 1.6 mm of thickness..
   The iPad Mini 4 just looks like the iPad Mini 3.  Apple seems to not mind the design. They must have felt that there is no use to change the design. This mini iPad has sloping edges that shines. The sides  have a nice arch to it. It feels good to hold on your hands. It is slippery, so be careful when handling this machine. On the top of this mini machine you can spot on the right side a volume switch and a lock button. On the Bottom you will see speaker holes and a lightning charging port. One thing nice with this mini iPad is that you can place it inside your bag and slip it out. It is so easy to use in any place because of it’s portability.. It lacks in productivity because of it’s smaller screen and battery. Typing on it becomes a bit difficult because of it’s small because of it’s size. The 2,058 x 1,536  display on the iPad Mini 4 does not have True Tone Technology One additional feature to this mini iPad is that it is laminated. This is an improvement from the latter’s predecessor’s air gap that was in between the glass and display. You feel like you handled the pixels. It’s a nice experience. It has larger amount of gamuts  and a wider range of hues. It’s a really good looking display because the display looks real vivid. I would not use it under direct sunlight because usage becomes constrained. The iOS 9 has it’s pros and cons. It’s just a bit iffy for me. I can deal with it and it’s not much of a concern. With the OS 9’s highlight iPad’s feature, it offers a new type of multitasking and you can use the split screen feature. this means you can open two apps side by side. The apps here are much better than the one’s that are on Android. With the Night shift mode on this mini iPad, you’ll will enjoy reading on this machine, especially during night time. Both cameras take good pictures but I prefer using my smartphone when taking pictures.

      This little machine is built to perform. With it’s A8X processor and MB co-processor plus it’s 2GB of RAM gives this iPad the ability to do much better work than it’s predecessor. You can open more tabs with the iPad mini 4 than the mini 3. The iOS works spontaneously and fast. You can use it for gaming purposes and it does better at this than the iPad mini 3. Don’t expect this to do better than it’s bigger  brothers. Remember that this is in an iPad mini and not a regular iPad . You’ll surely like the iPad mini 4 for media, browsing, reading and emailing. This is a functionable iPad. The Battery will give the user 10 hours of Battery life.
