Review iPad mini 4: Spesifikasi, Kelebihan dan Kekurangannya

PETIK.NET - When Apple released the iPad mini 4 in 2015, it received rave reviews from Apple fans. Not only does it have an elegant design, the iPad mini 4 also has powerful performance and advanced features that make it the most popular tablet today.

However, with the wide range of the latest tablets released by Apple, is the iPad mini 4 still worth buying in 2023?

Reviews for the iPad mini 4

Performance

iPad mini 4 comes with an A8 processor which is strong enough to run applications and games that require high performance.

However, with applications and games that are increasingly complex and heavy, the performance of the iPad mini 4 may be a little behind when compared to the latest tablets equipped with more sophisticated processors.

Even so, for everyday use such as browsing the internet, streaming videos, or reading electronic books, the iPad mini 4 can still carry out its duties smoothly.

Apart from that, the iPad mini 4 has also received an operating system update up to iOS 15, so users can still enjoy the new features offered by Apple.

Design

The design of the iPad mini 4 is elegant and compact, making it easy to carry anywhere. Weighing only about 298 grams makes it quite light and comfortable to use for a long time.

The 7.9-inch IPS Retina display screen is also very comfortable to use for browsing the internet, watching videos, or reading e-books.

However, when compared to Apple’s newest tablets such as the iPad Pro or iPad Air, the bezel or frame around the iPad mini 4 screen is quite thick and looks a little out of date.

In addition, unlike recent tablets that are equipped with Face ID, iPad mini 4 still uses Touch ID to unlock and verify payments.

Camera

iPad mini 4 is equipped with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.2 megapixel front camera. This rear camera is capable of producing pretty good photos when used in fairly bright light conditions. However, if used in low light conditions, the photo results may not be as satisfactory.

Meanwhile, the front camera of the iPad mini 4 is still quite adequate for use during video calls or selfies. However, when compared to the front camera on Apple’s newest tablet, the front camera on the iPad mini 4 looks dated.

Battery

The iPad mini 4 battery is claimed to last up to 10 hours under normal use, such as browsing the internet or streaming videos.
