Hi, Think I am going mad, anyway my sister was on holiday in America and has returned with an iPad Mini 1, she got it very cheap there. So I had a play with it when she came round, and I hate to say it, but I really liked it It felt more compact than I thought, I have a 2012 Nexus 7 and it's been fine but lately the back has started to creek and I can now press the edges of the screen and it causes the actual screen to be pressed if you know what I mean? One thing I don't like is poor build quality, I play a lot of games too and having lived with 3 iPhones know the extensive exclusive collection the app store gets of these. Also it's a lil annoying as my Nexus 5 has really shown up my Nexus 7 in speed, it really flies. So, I am now thinking of getting a 32GB iPad Mini Retina, I can get one through a scheme at work that saves me £22 on the price. My mum has an iPad 3 and I keep it up to date and had a play today, yes the iPad is very smooth now, iOS7 seems to have sorted it's problems out and it works better on a tablet. So, some questions, is the Mini a good quality product? Well built? Does it have any known hardware issues with it like backlight bleed or fault home buttons? How future proof will it be for those games? I ask as I know iOS7 supports all iPad models I think and some games will come out requiring it? I also use my tablet for web browsing and You Tube, which is daft also as the iPad app refreshes your subscriptions by pulling down on your subs page if I remember, on the Nexus it has no refresh feature, you have to go into most watched or something then back to your subs. Oh, and what are the new game controllers like? I said to myself long ago if I got another iPhone I would want the PowerVR 6 series as it's next gen, and Apple did deliver that. So are their any iPad mini Retina gamers out there? I play the graphically intense ones really like Real Racing, Dead Trigger, Dead Effect etc and I love pretty graphics. I also really enjoy the Defense Zone games and the Anomaly series, of which Anomaly 2 lagged a bit on my Nexus 7 towards the end. eco systems don't bother me, because I have tons of iOS apps I've bought from before which will still be linked to my account, and my Nexus 5 isn't going anywhere so I'll still have Android. I need to think fast as the offer through my work stops on the 20th of this month, most likely as next month is the new financial year. I am also not too fussed about an iPad Mini 3 as design wise it isn't going to get much smaller, they'll just boost the power. I am very surprised with myself with this, because I love my Nexus 7, but I don't think it's going to last and don't really want to take it apart just to tighten screws up to stop the creaking of the case. And even though I really didn't like iOS7 on my iPhone (hence I now have a Nexus 5) it does work better on a tablet, and their is no denying that iPad smoothness. And also, this is not a troll post, I am very serious about getting the mini but would like help with my questions?
