Honestly, the results are quite similar to last year’s model, as well as the original – meaning it produces sharp details, natural colors, and proper exposure.

No longer must we agonize over pixelization, just because its 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 IPS LCD Retina Display is glorious for its sharp visuals and strong details.

In general, we have to admit that the iPad mini’s 5-megapixel auto-focus camera is able to produce some pleasant shots with its quality – especially for a tablet.
