Best 8-inch (ish) Tablet
Key features: 7.9-inch Retina screen, A7 64-bit processor, 5-megapixel camera The good:
- Great screen
- Solid design
- Long battery life
Apple updated its incredibly popular iPad mini with a Retina display and a massive boost to performance.
It runs on the same 64-bit A7 CPU found inside the iPhone 5S and has a quad-core GPU to handle intense iPad games like Infinity Blade 3 with ease. It is very fast indeed.
If you like taking snaps with your tablet then the 5-megapixel rear camera is solid. The front camera is also good and is perfect for video calling. You can opt for a Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and 4G option and best of all it lasts for up to 10 hours of constant use on just a single charge.
It's more expensive than the last mini but it's well worth it. The design and screen are great and the performance blistering.
