As the title said, I was the happy owner of a first generation iPad mini, upgraded to a Retina iPad mini as soon as I could due to the poor pixel density of the original's display - the Retina really does make a huge difference. That said, I found my first iPad mini's screen to also be relatively dull - colors had no pop, particularly not compared to my iPhone 4S (at the time). After hearing of the gamut issue in the new Retina iPad mini, I was more than a little annoyed that my new Retina mini, which was already ordered and in the mail, would have similar issues as my original. To my surprise however, I was pleased to find that, to my eyes, my Retina mini has vastly more accurate colors than my original iPad mini. Is it absolutely perfect? No. I agree that my iPhone's display (I now have a 5s) is still better. But it's such a giant leap from the original iPad mini that I'm a happy customer. Very thankful I didn't let all this gamut hype get to me. If you're on the fence, go for it - the Retina iPad mini's display is absolutely gorgeous in practice, if not on paper. Worth mentioning I've got no issues with burn in nor with a yellow tint, either. Not saying that there aren't those with issues out there, but just saying I apparently got lucky. Apple, count down one more happy customer in a sea of threads filled with complaints.
