    most uncomfortable mouse, can't use when recharging

    Must keep a finger suspended in mid-air to avoid confusing the mouse. Very tiring. Resting finger at the very edge works but it's sharp so also very uncomfortable. Without exaggeration, every other mouse I've bought is more comfortable to use. Also frustrating that other rechargeable mice can be used when plugged in but that's not possible with this one. My previous mouse used normal rechargeable AA NiMH cells, which lasted about 3 months, and can be swapped in 15 seconds, rather than this which requires a new recharge every couple of weeks and an idle Mac for 30 minutes and still less than 1/2 charged. Apple can do SO much better than this!

    REALLY uncomfortable material and shape

    It's not only about the terrible shape, which is great to the eyes but not to the hand.. it's also about the worst material and texture EVER for a mouse. It's imposible to scroll when your hands get a little sweaty because the terrible material makes it imposible. Really different to the trackpad's material which is great.. one star for this pricy product is so much! ZERO STARS

    Great product

    I've had little to no issues with this mouse. Looks great, has great battery life and feels fairly good in the hand. Keeps my USB C port free as well. I've had one disconnect, once. It was near another bluetooth device. Never happened again. I've used it for quite some time now. I feel it could be a hair more accurate for very small motions, where as my Japanese VAIO mouse is a bit more responsive on my PC, but overall usable and above average.

    this mouse kills my wifi connection

    This mouse actually kills my wifi connection.
    When it is on, I have little or no internet connection.
    The moment I switch it off, my internet connection works fine.
    I thought it was strange, and might have something to do with me, but no: it is a common issue, apparently.
    The Bluetooth connection of the mouse interferes with wifi connections.
    So you can choose: use the mouse, or have internet and email.
    No solution offered by Apple.
    Nothing at all.

    So customers... make your choice...

    Do you really want to pay more for an Apple accessory that causes problems that Apple is not eager to solve?

    Disappointing--should've returned it

    I can't think of any other way to describe this product than" it's apiece of junk. I should've returned it as soon as I got it. I ran it with Snow Leopard then with Yosemite. It gets stuck, sometimes it moves on its own and especially when it's not placed right next to the computer, it can lose connectivity. Apple: please get it right next time.

    Fantastic

    I was hesitant to purchase the MM 2 because of the negative reviews.

    So, I visited the Apple Store and took the Magic Mouse 2 on a test drive.

    Then, I came home and read the reviews again and said... Huh ??

    If you are like me, you grow weary of reading BOGUS product reviews.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with this mouse.

    It is exactly the same form factor as the original.

    It does not "wobble" as one reviewer stated.

    It has a nice heft, drives well and feels great in your hand.

    Bottom line... disregard any review less than four or five stars.

    This is a very good improvement over the original Magic Mouse.

    Rubbish

    By far the worst mouse I have every used in my entire life. Overpriced, rubbish, too heavy and bad glide pads. Do youself a favor, don't buy this mouse. A $2 microsoft piece of trash mouse is 10 times better than this. The worst bit is the ergonomics. It is like trying to track with a bloody smoothed stone you would find at the bottom of a river. That is not a good thing. Whose hand is shaped like a crescent moon anyway? You can't right click and left click at the same time, there is not bloddy scroll wheel and it always accidentally zooms in and out. If there were 0 stars I would give it to it. A trackpad is better than this. Very disapointing. Stop trying to do some BS innovation and stick to what works. If this is a budget for your mouse than get some like an mx master.

    Excellent

    I'm not one to usually write reviews but there seemed to be quite a few negative comments I felt I should balance them out.

    I find this mouse excellent, I have had no issues at all connecting it (to a Macbook pro purchased June 2015) and so far the battery life seems pretty good. It fits very comfortable in my hand, and is very comfortable for all the finger gestures that can be used on it which I personally find the best feature of the lot.

    I would highly recommend.

    Worst Apple Product ever

    My iMac came with a magic mouse 1 and I can tell you is the worst apple product ever. It suffers from constant disconnection to bad battery life. I was so frustrated that I took the mouse as a Pedro Martinez throw, I threw against the wall. I got the magic mouse 2 and it looks the battery issue is kind of fixed but I still was not happy with the connection so I returned. Apple need to improve the connection and put the lighting connector at the front of the mouse.

    Works great but is pretty much the same as the old one

    Great mouse. It is pricy though and the old one is the same except it takes AAs which I don't mind.

    It kinda works

    Pros:
    -It's a wireless mouse with working X and Y axis
    -Includes a lightning USB cable, a $19 value (rated 1.5 stars from 2,163 reviews)

    Cons:
    -Constantly requires charging, so I have to keep a backup mouse plugged in
    -Can't upgrade from Yosemite on my work laptop, so scrolling + gestures don't work
    -It looks really dumb while it's charging

    Design over function

    While the new Magic Mouse works perfectly with my new IMac when charged, you can't use it while it is charging as the port is on the bottom of the mouse.
    Whoever thought of this design wasn't thinking of the customer. I now have to wait until it charges to use my computer as I don't have a trackpad with the IMac.

    You can't use the mouse while charging the battery

    Read the title. Useless product, terrible design.

    Not comfortable

    The only reason for buying the magic mouse is the compatibility of the system. Otherwise, this is my last option to buy a mouse for this price. The design is sharp, idea is great but terrible consideration on comfortability.

    Some advise for the buyers. If you need a mouse for gaming or everyday use, pass it. If you really do need a mouse compatible with system, get it.

    Not Bad

    I use it with my MacBook Pro 15 Inch. it's not bad i like the feel and i like the sound of the click. it works perfectly it can do every function that i would like it to. But may someone please inform me why we need this product if we have a mousepad built into our laptops? Not saying product is bad, i enjoyed it.

    Great mouse but Apple can do better

    I purchased the latest mouse due to tracking issues with the original Magic Mouse so it's great to have full functionality again.
    No problems with the automatic pairing which worked as expected for an Apple product.
    It is possible to view the remaining charge. Click on the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar and highlight the mouse to view the remaining battery. Some reviewers seem not to have noticed this.
    Like others that have reviewed it I'm surprised by the location of the charging port. It would have made more sense to put it on the front but it's great not to have to mess around changing batteries every few weeks.

    I would have thought that Apple would have taken the chance to maybe change the design and provide more functionality. They do seem to be losing their way slightly of late hence the 4 star rating.

    Not the best Apple experience

    Out of the box, it paired right away with my iMac running Yosemite, but no cursor movement. After calling into tech support, it took rebooting the mac holding down command+option+r+p to clear nvram. Then it started to work. However, still haven't gotten scroll to work yet. Are macs supposed to be this difficult? I thought that is why I left Windows....

    Painful User Experience - Jittery and lagging cursor movement

    Jittery and lagging cursor movement on the screen makes this mouse difficult to use. Making small cursor movements is close to impossible.

    In general, design focused on looks over ergonomics. Saying that the gestures are brilliant and it creates the typical apple immersive user experience.

    The mouse fails on the basics but the advanced functions are great. Maybe Magic Mouse 3 will fix the simple things, until then I would look for alternatives to this difficult to point mouse.

    All form, no function.

    I'm normally a huge fan of Apple products, however this mouse leaves my hand feeling sore. I'm a daily user of their standard wired mouse, which has great palm support. This mouse, has none. It feels like you're moving around a credit card instead of something you can comfortably rest your hand on. No palm support. All form, no function. Apple can do better than this. Their latest and greatest mouse may win awards for industrial design, but it's not winning the comfort of my hand.

    Magic Mouse 2 vs Magic Mouse 1

    WeI have two iMac's and the newer one has MM2. I find it smoother and even more comfortable to use than the MM1, and the built in battery lasts longer than the rechargeable batteries I use in MM1.
    The main thing for me though is that the MM2 retains a solid bluetooth connection to whichever machine I am using on, whereas the MM1 has always been prone to disconnecting or taking a while to connect.
    The fact that you cannot use the mouse while it is charging did worry me slightly at first, but, as I assume the the battery does not suffer from reduced capacity due to 'memory' problems, one can just keep an eye on it and recharge it well before it gets too low for a days use. Perhaps put a monthly reminder in the Calendar.
