iPad mini review

The original iPad mini is still good, apart from that screen

Our Verdict

The iPad mini ushered in a major change for Apple and aside from the slightly disappointing screen we loved this tablet. It's now been usurped by the iPad mini 2 with Retina display, so it's really only there for those on a budget.
