But for those who don't need software or OS support and are Android enthusiasts this is an excellent tablet with a top notch CPU, a lovely IPS display and an attractive design.

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.

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.

Display quality is good, with a sharp image and commendable (if not searing) top brightness.

Featuring a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD display, it simply delivers the goods in the details department, as its 323 ppi pixel density is undoubtedly breathtaking for its screen size.
