This time last year people were all over these forums with how much they absolutely love their mini - it was the "perfect iPad", in fact people said they loved their iPad Minis so much, it didn't even matter that it had year-old processing technology and a poor resolution display - even at a time when retina-class displays were the expected standard. Now this year's mini is as powerful as its big brother and has the retina display, but I'm actually yet to read anything positive about it - people are saying they loved their iPad Mini 1's, rushed out to buy this one as it was seemingly all they had ever wanted, and are disappointed with it. So what is fuelling this disappointment? I find it hard to believe its a slightly rare image retention issue that hardly anyone will ever notice or a slightly faded colour display which, unless pointed out to you and held up next to a display with better colour, wouldn't necessarily be noticeable - and even if these were issues, I can't see they are worse than the ones people were willing to put up with last year - so what's really wrong with it? I haven't got/used one so I can't answer this myself.
