I had two minis last year just because I love the form factor, but that display was just sad, so I returned them. I do love my iPad 4 generation display, and do to it I couldn't stick to lots of tablets, just because it is simply awesome. Getting to my opinion. I have been waiting for Mini retina for a whole year, and I preordered it, and was so excited about it. I got it and loves it, until a friend of mine told me about this Gamut test, then I've put this thought in my head about how crappy the display truly is, and became very unhappy. I watched every video comparing both, and read forums here from beginning to end. Today play with my mini, I decided to compare to my iPhone 5S display, and you can see the difference, so I went out and bought iPad Air. 3 hours comparing both and to my iPad 4th generation, and my conclusion is, iPad 4th generation still has the best display, because it's right in between. Mini retina has gentler colors, tiny bit faded, while iPad Air has colors right in your face and too cartoony. Red color on Air hurts your eyes at full brightness and so does deep blue. Tried the same colors on mini retina, and they are more pleasant to look at. Then I watched videos, faces on Air look more greener, while on Mini Retina more true to life. I can't imagine having Air colors on the Mini Retina, it's resolution is higher and having such cartoony colors will be a total pain to look at. I think Air colors should be toned down a little bit. Looking at a flower on it that has a rainbow of colors, the details are faded, lines on a petal drown due to over saturated colors, while on mini retina colors aren't so saturated and aren't as vivid as iPad 4th generation, but the details are just pleasure to look at. At the end of the day, I pick Mini retina Why? Form factor is just superb, much more portable than iPad Air. Colors are toned down, but at least they are not overly saturated. Speakers on Mini are much better in my opinion than Airs speakers.
