Would it be silly to go from an original IPad to a mini?
Givern that I won’t use itt for films ect whilst at home, & trying to use the I player on 3G is a waste of time then just what do I expect from a portable device?Posted 5 years ago
Well I except the limitations, but do I want a massive phone for the 1% of the time it will be usefull, Er no, the iPad is most usefull whenn I’m not in a wifi area but I’m not sure how this relates to my OP.
(Other tablets are available….)
I’ve just got a mini Samsung Galaxy as a travel tablet. Am very impressed. Bunged a 32gb memory card in on top of the 16gb internal memory and it holds plenty. If I need more on a long haul or for storing more photos, for example, carrying another 32gb card is really easy. I can just bung in more memory whenever I want, with no need to be online to do so. Plus, all my media is just drag and drop, so I can move stuff around anywhere really easily.
Overall, mini tablet is a great idea for travelling. Battery life is a little less, but size/weight are perfect for flying with, IMHO.Posted 5 years agonutsnvolksMember
I have a mini, I think it’s great. Makes a nice compromise between trying to stare at my phone screen and getting the laptop out! That said, the wife seems to have claimed it as hers! And I’ve never had a normal iPad to compare it, but screen didn’t seem that much smaller in the shopPosted 5 years agoforge197Member
Had an original ipad for a couple of years and have recently “retired” it for the mini, never went back to ipad 1 once the mini is a great size and as I had an ipad 1 a jump in performance, also 4G on ee is excellent as is there 3G were 4G is not available.
So no it would not be sillyPosted 5 years agovrapanSubscriber
iPad 1 is left behind since getting a Mini. Maybe you will be more bothered if you give up the high res of one of the newer iPads but I am not spoiled in that way so for the time being the mini is better. Battery life is very good, size/weight near darn perfect, screen size not noticeably smaller.
Complains, it could be more scratch resistant, a bit faster and bit cheaper. Other than that just buy one.Posted 5 years agoSpongebobMember
I have an iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.
The iPad cold do with being a little bit bigger for home use.
A 6″ tablet wold be ideal on the move – something that slips into a jacket pocket.
I tried out he iPad mini and thought it was too big and relatively expensive.
I hate the way Apple are so tight about pricing the larger storage models and those with 3G/4G and GPS
IMHO, all Mini’s should have 3G/4G GPS, otherwise, what is the point of it?Posted 5 years ago
