I own an iPad mini and I see no problems with the screen at all.
The resolution is higher than the iPad 2, not quite as high as the 3 & 4. Still a great screen
The mini has exactly the same resolution as the iPad2 but with smaller pixels, it seems sharper than the 2.
Agreed. I compared my iPad mini screen with an iPad 2 at Best Buy and my screen has a crisper appearance.
I find it to be fine. Maybe there's a difference in a side by side comparison, but in actual use, its perfect. I had a kindle fire hd and took it back. (for other reasons) but that screen actually gave me headaches.
I had the kindle fire hd for a month before returning it. It has a great hd picture and sound but that's all it has so it went back. One hour with the mini and I don't even notice the difference anymore.
You better be careful or you'll have a Android community backlash for being an Apple Fanboy HaHa!! I played around a number of times with the Fire HD, but ordered a iPad Mini. I just know it will work and work very well at that.
How does text look if you're coming from a retina display iPad? I read a lot on websites and play games but I really do not like the heft and bulk of my full sized iPad.
If there's an Apple Store or Best Buy near you, it's best to take your iPad retina with you and compare side by side.
This is a screen cap of a page from a novel stored in my iPad 2. The mini's resolution is slightly better than the 2 because of the smaller screen and increased pixel density.
Hope it helps.

I got an iPad 3 in March and love the excellent retina screen, particularly for reading books and magazines and websites with tiny print. However, I wanted a lighter, smaller form factor for everyday mobility. I do notice that text on the mini is not as sharp as the retina screen. It's okay for brief reading like email or a few minutes spent reading at lunch, but I prefer the 3 for long reading sessions. That said, the portability of the mini, it's excellent sound and very good screen make me very happy with it. I use both daily. I'm over sixty and work long days in front of a computer screen, so my eyes are often tired even before I start to read for fun in the evening. The retina screen on the 3 definitely helps me, but your experience may be different.
Only you can decide if a mini will do what you want it to do. Good luck! Let us know what you decide.
