When you look at tablet offerings from Apple, the company wins hands down and there is no competition. The tech giant recently launched a special product, iPad mini that is at the same age of iPad 3. Apple does not only have iPads but also laptops and if you wish to buy an iPad, then read and understand the benefits of an iPad before you decide.
Although, there are as many as 3 forms of iPads, this latest edition of Apple is packed with a lot of features. It is easy to use and smaller in size compare to other iPad versions. If you are confused as to which iPad would be best for you, the comparison is given below, listing 5 differences between iPad Mini and iPad 3.
If you compare the screens of the iPad Mini and iPad 3, then iPad 3 will surely win because screen resolution is of better quality and it has high retina display. The screen resolution of iPad Minis is 1024*768 pixel resolution whereas that of iPad 3 is 2048*1536 pixels. Screen size of iPad Mini is 7.9 inch. The picture quality of iPad Mini is far better than that of iPad 3. You can actually taste Digital SLR quality photographs in every pixel of iPad Mini.
2. Design and Physical Structure:
iPad Mini is much more modest than the iPad 3. This makes it more convenient and thinner and more effortless to keep. The inclusion of a Lightning Connector can be as a big drawback, especially if you have numerous iPad accessories. But, then it is more of what you prefer when it comes to form because the quality of both the iPads is excellent.
We like the humbler shape-element of the iPad Mini as it is incredibly much smaller and lighter in comparison to smartphones – the previous iPads and the present Google Nexus 7. It is 53% lighter when compared to the iPad 3.
The iPad Mini consists of a 5MP iSight camera. This means images will be detailed and bright. It also has a front-facing HD camera for Facetime video chats. Well really, there has never been much fight when it comes to photography beacuse it has never been very important to us when it comes to tablets. The reason for this is that when you shoot using a tablet, it would appear like shooting using a plank. With its small size, the iPad Mini could actually be taken for a big smartphone – something like a Samsung phone.
4. Operating System and Memory:
Both products of Apple, iPad mini and iPad 3, work on iOS 6 operating system. Apple gives a map facility to its all products and it is very useful. There is, however, a small difference between these two and that is key functioning. Besides this, everything is almost the same. Both use dual core A5 processor and battery life of both of these models is equal. iPad mini supports 4G. So it is very fast.
So, when it comes to the initial verdict based on these specifications, the Mini screen is something that you would like to use at home. The smaller size and lighter weight makes it a good choice since you can hold it for a long time. Also, the price makes it a better choice. It has a good storage capacity and unless you want a large display, the iPad Mini is the best choice among tablets today.
