You are either lying or miswrote something. The iPad mini's screen is equal or superior to the iPad 2 in every way except for size. The definition is sharper (smaller pixels), and the rest is pretty much the same (IPS, LED backlight, etc.).

Even allowing for personal preferences, poor memory, and such things where somehow you might think the iPad 2's screen is better than the mini's, there's no way to say it's "much worse". Are you thinking of the iPad 3?

But only on the mini is it somehow the worst thing ever in the whole world. You're right that different strokes for different folks and all that, but the haters are the fanatics in this case, and the guy you question if he is "getting paid by Apple or something" the voice of reason.

No one says you have to like the display, but it's drama queen absurd the way some people are reacting.

I am really surprised how emotional people get over one device versus another. I sold my iPad 2 about 1.5 months ago. My wife has the 3. I went back and forth at the Apple store with the Mini and the 4. I ordered the Mini with LTE. No argument on the technical specs. I will use for mainly mail, RSS reader, web, and some TV/Movie watching on airplanes.

I may wind up returning it for a iPad 4; but the form factor and weight is so tempting I just have to give it a try.

Can you imagine if clothing choices were as limited as tablet devices? Everyone has to pick what works for them; it's great to have more choices. And yes I agree the next gen mini will be retina as that is the maximize income model Apple uses. Profit is a good thing, if you do not believe that read Atlas Shrugged.

If you agree or not I don't care. But that was really uneccessary.

Exactly, no one is complaining because these other devices have better displays. It is real world experience, not paper specs. It's worse.

What does that even mean? Nothing ever posted in these forums is necessary. You are basically saying people are allowed to agree or disagree with you, but only those that agree with you are allowed to post their opinions?

What are you talking about? There are countless posts here about how Nexus 7 and other tablets having better displays.

And it's not "real world experience" that's being talked about here. Real world experience is people currently use lower resolution displays today without complaints.

Apple even sells a lower res iPad today, in stores, prominently displayed for people to use and buy!

But, somehow, on the mini it is all sorts of negative hyperbole. Real world is truly, nobody gives a ****. The display it has is good, retina would be better. But to read the posts here, you'd think retina is a barely passable minimum, and anything less shoots sand into your eyes.

Hardly. I'm saying that someone can have an opinion different than yours without being liar.

You get what you pay for.

Apple will always be a premiere product, you don't like it don't buy it.
LOL riiight. Apple loves fans like you that believe everything they make is the greatest thing since the automobile.

As a owner of a iPad 3, Nexus 7, Motorola Xoom and Kindle Fire the Nexus 7 does hold its own. Both the Fire and the Nexus 7 don't feel like cheap products. They may be made of plastic but its not the same plastic that Samsung uses on their phones, it feels just as solid as the iPad 3 with less weight.

iPad 3 gets used mostly at home but when I go to work I use the Nexus 7 since it:
a) is smaller
b) you are able to customize the keyboard (a huge problem with iPads in my opinion) so I can type quickly and efficiently.

What Apple has done with the iPad Mini is sold less for more.

How is book reading on the Mini, compared to the Kindle Fire, for those that have both?

The hyperbole is annoying, but couldn't the haters pile on in one or two theads--there must have 10 duplicate threads about how crappy the mini is. In fairness, there have been at least 10 to say its not that bad.

YES. After I got my iPad mini I literally stopped using my iPad. But I wasn't sure about ditching my Kindle yet. After a few nights reading with the mini, the Kindle has now joined the iPad sulking in the corner.

I concur.

However, the concept of individuality is often lost or misunderstood in Appleville.

The organizations' dictatorial ways tend to hamper otherwise intelligent human beings ability to think for themselves.

A side effect is a boorish attitude... perfectly normal, if not rather repugnant.

Sure, I'll get the retina mini when it's ready. But happy as a clam until then.
What people don't realize is they bash it because there is a higher powered product. The mini is perfect for a certain crowd, otherwise apple wouldn't even release it.

I think people can't comprehend that some people, myself included will gladly forego the retina screen for the thinnest, lightest device they can make. And if they make a retina that is significantly heavier or thicker I woouldn't want it.

Exactly my feeling, the whole point of the Mini is the fact it is small, thin and light, yet still easier to use than any other 7" competitor.

Any thicker or heavier and you may as well just use the 9.7 iPad.
