Which is better iPAD Air or iPAD Mini





There is a difference in the screen size. The screen size of iPad mini is around 7.9 inch and that of Air is around 9.7 inch. Both screens are best but with slightly different experiences. The difference is in PPI. Ipad mini offers 326 PPI right now that can only be matched by Google Nexus 7 right now. However, Air offers 263 PPI that is lower than Mini right now. Both runs on Apple A7 ARM. 

The only dilemma is that there is no software right now to take advantage of this one.If you want to buy Air, released on November 1st then you can but the iPad mini with retina display is also going to be launched soon and that is also going to be a great choice. Air is bigger in size and hence good for web browsing and reading text. It is bigger but only 469 grams in weight. The size of the Mini is around 331 grams. The cost of Air is going to be around 500 dollars and that of Mini with retina display will be 400 dollars with Wi-fi only edition. You can buy Air any ways.

There is one more aspect of these smartphones that makes them best for reading. You are going to get retina display with the Mini that is coming soon and hence you can think of best resolution and the view will be free from glaze. Hence you can watch out for Retina display that is a buzz in the market right now.

The price range of Ipad mini will be only 400 dollars and hence if you wish to buy for less then the new mobile phone Mini is going to be a better option for you. It will be lighter with 331 grams. You are going to enjoy it in January definitely.

Which is better iPAD Air or iPAD Mini


Hello Wateson,

Both the tablets have the same functionality regardless of their size. They have come up with:

  • Retina display
  • iOS 7,A7 Processor
  • Memory extendable up to 128GB
  • Both promise 10 hours of battery life.
  • Weight almost same

Being smaller in size and providing similar functionalities iPad mini is more easy to carry anywhere in trains or pocket. Whereas iPad Air is more comfortably used at home due to its large size. Another advantage of iPad mini is that it offers all the functionalities and speed at a lower price than iPad Air.

  2. Display is an important point because IPAD AIR is 9.7 inches but IPAD MINI is 7.9 inches. It is upon to you that what you need a bigger screen or smaller.
  3. The memory configuration between these two devices are same.
  4. Both has a good WLAN network. In IPAD AIR Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-brand, wi-Fi hotspot and in IPAD MINI Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-brand.
  5. The configuration of the camera in both devices are same. Both have 5MP, 2592×1944 pixels and auto focus. Features: Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR.
  6. The OS, Chipset, CPU, GPU and Sensor configuration are same.
  • OS: iOS 7.0.3

  • GPU: PowerVR G6430 (quad-core graphics)
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, gyro, compass.

  1. Both have non-removable Li-Po battery.

Now we can see that the entire configuration is same in both devices except Weight and Display. If you like big screen and money is not a problem for you you can buy APPLE IPAD AIR. If display is not a fact to you I will suggest you for IPAD MINI as its weight is less than IPAD AIR which means IPAD MINI is comfortable to carry and the price is also less than IPAD AIR.

Hope this will help you.
