Even though it weighs 3x the iPhone 5 it really isn't at all noticeable. In fact, given how much larger than the iPhone 5 it is your brain is almost tricked into feeling it's lighter because you're expecting so much more bulk.
The screen is noticeably not retina, but that's the only negative thing I've noticed at all so far.
Maybe my eyes are really bad, but I loved the display of iPad (gen 1). When I got gen 3, I noticed it was better, but it wasn't like going from black and white to a plasma HDTV. To me, it was a step up a nicer image, but the non-retina display is not a huge negative (on the Mini). ...IMHO
Fed Ex Mini LTE delivery attempt at my mountain condo yesterday before I could get there. Will get it Monday. Fed Ex had it in China the day before and it's already here. -- Gary in South Carolina --For a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three.
Hopefully my A6X will be here early then. I lost my 3rd gen last week and ordered a 4th gen as a replacement. But of course it is scheduled for delivery at my office the Friday after Thanksgiving. I really don't want roll in just to wait on Fedex nor do I want to wait more than a week for my shipment.
