User opinions and reviews

Idea of this ipad is good. I personally visit specially to take a look and try it BUT apps + Home Screen isn't perfectly matching this size. It feels like something needs to be polished for this size. No doubt size is just perfect to handy...

Couldn’t agree with you more. Apps should be resized for this particular size for easier reading, otherwise the whole idea of portability becomes useless. Still using it ‘cos of its blazing fast performance.

It's so easy to make a choice. Mini 6 is only for smaill device users that can easily carry it when watching movies, playing games or quick note. Otherwise, go with the Air 4
