The results are interesting. The new iPad mini is about 4 times ahead of the first generation of iPad mini, but a little behind the iPad Air, although running on the same SoC. It can be assumed that the SoC in iPad mini Retina little differently regulates the energy saving and in certain tasks slightly reduces the frequency of CPU. However, we highlight this is only speculation. But the main Android-competitors were left far behind iPad mini Retina (although, of course, ahead of the first iPad mini).
Visual brightness of the reflection is difficult to assess because of the differences in the color tone and color frames, but the statistics in the editor shows that the screen on the new iPad mini little lighter (average brightness – 95) than the Nexus 7 (83), and the darker than the old iPad mini (108).
These all devices are much expensive than other tablets but Apple is the first company who brought 64GB and 128GB storage options in the market.
