The screen's too small to make multitasking really useful, and since Asus had to make the dock the same size as the tablet, it's too small as well.

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.

Reviews Word on the street

Vivo Tab  vs iPad mini 2 

The really impressive feat of the iPad Mini, the surprise, is that it seems to handle all the iPad's normal duties while being shrunken down.
iPad mini 2

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.

But regardless of market positioning, the iPad mini has to be viewed in a world with a $199 Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD — two strong performers that are a far cry, at least in price, from the iPad mini.
