In our Apple iPad Mini review, we liked its bright, colorful display and long battery life of 12 hours and 40 minutes in our Laptop Mag Battery Test. We gave the iPad mini a 4 out of 5-star rating for its overall great performance.

In real-world tests, the iPad mini 5's mighty A12 Bionic chip took on multiple apps simultaneously with no lag. Gameplay on the tablet was also fast and fluid.

In our lab, the iPad mini 5's multi-core score of 11,515 on Geekbench 4 beat the iPad Air (11,471). Weighing a mere 0.7 ounces and 8 x 5.3 x 0.2 inches, the iPad mini is much lighter and just as thin as the iPad Air (16 ounces, 9.8 x 6.8 x 0.2 inches).

Hands down, the iPad mini is one of the fastest and smallest tablets out there. 

So if you're looking for an ultraportable, speedy tablet that you can write on, the iPad mini is worth considering.
