In reality, the HD quality videos are much more impressive on the iPad mini with Retina display, meaning you'll always be tempted to fork out a little more to get the extra sharpness.

But the Retina display on the mini 2 is unquestionably superior and once you're used to Retina quality the lower resolution of the older screens is very noticeable.

Apple might be criticised for bringing older technology to the iPad mini, as the A5 chip with 512MB of RAM doesn't sound like a lot when you can buy the quad core Google Nexus 4 smartphone with 2GB of RAM for the same price as the mini, and with the same amount of storage too.

I found the speed of doing this to be more than acceptable despite the lower-spec processor, with the smaller screen making cropping photos even easier than on the iPhone.
