    i have a question about ipad mini retina screen. apple said that the screen is retina display like ipad air and it has more pixels than the ipad air (326 ppi>264ppi) and same resolution. But why does the color saturation on ipad air looks sharper and deeper than ipad mini? i want to make sure it's not a problem before buying it.

    The rMini has a sharper screen as it has a higher pixel density (more pixels = sharper looking screen) but the colour saturation (or gamut) is a separate thing.

    The saturation does seem to be a bit lower on the retina mini but it isnt enough to really have a detrimental effect on usage.
