Detailed review
I love the form factor and the speed seems just fine - but I cannot put up with the resolution. I honestly can read text easier on my iPhone 5. The main reason I got the mini was so I could read text easier - it unfortunately does not do this well - especially "in app" text like ESPNs App - I can barely read the play by play text. I love everything else about it - but I will be returning it.
