The Retina iPad Mini can't compete with its bigger brother at showing the same wide range of colors, according to tests run by tech review site Anandtech.
Putting the new Mini through its paces, Anandtech discovered that its color gamut hasn't changed since the first model was introduced in 2012. Further, the Retina Mini's sRGBcoverage is limited compared with that of the Air and with those of rival tablets, such as theNexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.
"The difference is small but apparent," Anandtech said, especially to people accustomed to the full sRGB coverage found in the Air and the Retina Display MacBook Pros and the iMac. The most visible deviations are in the red/blue and magenta colors, Anandtech noted, which can been see in a side-by-side comparison of the Mini and the Air on Anandtech's site.
