I bought a mini after having a nexus7 for a while and loving it. |
The screen is noticeably better rez-wise on the N7, but I still find myself using the mini much more - the wider screen lends itself to surfing and web pages much better I find, despite the lower resolution.
It's interesting because the new Nexus is even narrower - and hence less attractive to me - if you use it in landscape mode (which I do a lot) then by the time there's buttons (software ones) at the bottom and perhaps a keyboard onscreen - there's not much browser real estate left.
Both great tablets, but a retina mini, even if they change nothing else, would be a absolute day 1 purchase for me.
I've never regretted buying mine though - its awesome. So light too, compared to the N7.
