The iPad Mini 4, Apple’s 4th generation model, is not just slim, compact and simple as stated in this title. It’s now upgraded and improved when it comes to performance.
At a glance, most of you will say that nothing has change in this model since; it still looks like the iPad Minis 2 and 3. But if you’re going to try their cases in this one, you’ll eventually find out that this is lighter and slimmer than those. So, sad to say but you’ll definitely have to buy cases for this new model.
Though you think that the design is somewhat ‘recycled’, it is still one of the best premium tablets in the market. And if you think that it’s harder to handle because of its wideness, you’re definitely wrong. And if you miss the feel of the two previous models because of the buttons, you don’t need to worry since its ports, Touch ID finger sensor and buttons are all located in the same place.
When it comes to color resolution and production side, however, this one really increases the hype. The display is noticeably more accurate and brighter because of Apple’s improvement of sRGB gamut chart calibration. As of this time, it now has a 426-nit luminance compared to the previous models’ 312 nits. That means you can still see things in your tablet clearly, even if you’re outdoors.
