Good day.
This device arrived in version 128Gb + LTE. I can answer questions if someone has them.
First impressions-it feels very similar to the first-generation mini because of the similar weight. By speed from air2 is not yet distinguishable. Concerns about the reduced capacity of the battery did not materialize - enough for as much as the second generation mini was enough. The screen is very nice, better than the previous minicar.
Of the minuses, there is only one - due to the increased length, covers from old models do not fit. I had to buy my own version (smart cover and silicone case).

Rep: (82)
The question is whether there is a switch like on the first mini, orientation and volume of the rocker? The second is there a defect in the matrix when you press the reinforced back on the case, as on most air 2?

Rep: (37)
* voronalexss
There is no orientation / silent switch like on air2. Volume up / down buttons are present. I do not observe defects with a screen (with pressure from behind). But, perhaps, weakly I press?
Although with real use in air2, I also did not notice this ...

Rep: (126)
* III-CJ-III, Does the battery charge well?

Rep: (37)
Full At the level of mini 2. I thought it would be worse ...

Rep: (126)
* III-CJ-III, The fact is that I did not have any apple products at all. So how many mini2 holds I do not know.

Rep: (82)
Tell me what model you got, did you take it in Russia? Eac on the box in the back? What do you say on the speakers, better is worse than Air 2 in terms of recoil to the hull?

At the stated 10 hours pulls. Here you can see and if you want to compare with other devices, including on the android. What device is interesting for you to compare?

I bought in the official Russian Apple Store on apple.com/ru. Brought the next day by courier service DHL.
Model 128gb with LTE. EAC did not look, but it should be, since the official delivery.

According to the dynamics - today I will test. Although when watching a video from YouTube at medium volume, this was not observed.
Yes, and on air2, I did not consider this problem (IMHO).

Rep: (3401)
Honestly, I don’t know if it’s worth changing, the processor doesn’t differ much from mini 2; I’d like to do it in Air 2. The cameras are not very important, the thickness suits ... Although you can think about 2 GB of RAM, and then you can easily change it :-)

Rep: (37)
* alex @ rya,
For me, after mini2, the increasing factors were the increase in RAM and touchID. Well, by itself, new features ios9 type picture-in-picture and work with two applications at the same time.

Rep: (37)
* voronalexss
According to the speakers: only at maximum volume begins to vibrate quite a bit. If we compare with Eyrom2, then we can say, it does not vibrate at all)

And where to buy a cover on it?

Rep: (37)
* iluxa23,
I bought together with the device in the apple store. Maybe the Chinese are already warning ...

Rep: (1)
I bought this device, the Yoobao cover stayed from the ipad mini and when closing the opening of the cover of the cover, the ipad does not block and will not unlock. Perhaps the cover does not fit or somewhere in the settings you need to turn it on?

Rep: (37)
* sony6670
Rather not fit. Smart cover from mini 1/2/3 is also not blocked / unlocked.

Rep: (0)
Does it have a touch id like an iPhone 6 or like a 6s? Interested in speed of operation.

Rep: (37)
* uriy31,
It feels like - as of 6. Actually, the new touch on the mini didn’t promise.

Rep: (798)
* sony6670 Covers from previous models do not fit. Slightly changed the size of the device, as well as the location of the magnets. On the apple store there are covers for mini 4.
