Great small dimensions,great job apple,price big

A god, 10 Oct 2021"Annoying screen jelly effect." Now bec someone ... moreDitto.
Also own a S7+ OLED Samsung tablet that is supposed to have best screen u can get in tablet and still has same jelly scroll issue if you look for it.
Also has other issues like colors all wrong at minimum brightness, already showing signs of burn-in, etc.. No perfect tablet screen people will always find issues if they look for them!
Personally, might trade in my S7+ for this mini since it's half the weight and that counts for a lot if you plan on hand holding it for hours at time. Currently use a stand for my S7+ since it so big and heavy. I remember with my old ipad mini used to be able to carry in one hand for hours at time not to mention sharper screen due to higher DPI on smaller mini screen. This is also quite noticeable if you look for it like any games with planets like Star Wars commander used to have planets actually look round on the mini whereas on larger tablet like normal size ipad and S7+ can actually see the polygonal outline of the planets instead of smooth circular planets.
Only things I'll miss on the S7+ is the microSD slot and free pen included otherwise nothing to compelling to keep me on Android tablet.

Even smartphones which are under 10mm thickness have 7000mah battery.

In other words, even the latest and the greatest Android tabs cannot replace Windows laptops especially the Surface Pro with a keyboard.

Sorry Apple, I really wanted to buy an iPad Pro (my 1st would-be-iPad). But even after the latest iPadOS and TB port, your productivity apps are so limited. Although you claim that it just works as a laptop replacement, in reality even the latest iPad is still a kid's option. I will be looking for a Windows based detachable like Surface instead.

After all the talk about how much better optimized iPads are than Android tablets, I was shocked to find out that the iPad does not have an Instagram app for tablets at all. And many games come with black borders that are automatically filled on Android devices. This is quite sad actually and I don't understand how tech reviewers can be ao blinded to ignore sucj things when saying once again how much better optimized iOS / iPad OS is than Android...

I think that with what it costs it should have at least 90 Hz refresh rate and 128 GB of internal storage.
Too bad it isn't.

Anonymous, 12 Oct 2021Does anyone buy tablets other than iPads? I've tried ... moreThat question is stupid.
It is true that Apple continues to dominate the market for these devices but that does not mean that Samsung, Lenovo, Xiaomi or Huawei (if you are not interested in not having Google services) do not also excellent Tablets.
I always say: There is a market for everyone.
The rest is apologism for this or that brand of technology.

Apple has the best tablets in the market it is for those people who want different experience from a tablet unlike the android ones

Anonymous, 11 Oct 2021how big battery u think other tablet that have similar size... moreGiven the size, it needs minimum 7000mah battery.

IMO it should be around 9000mah and should come with 65W fast charging.

Who wants more battery? when the amount of things you can do on your phone is limited?
Or when the entire user experience is handicapped?
