    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.

    It's ok but...

    Ok so I like it but it looks really weird plugging it in on the bottom. At first, it wouldn't connect, and I had to reinstall OS X for it to work correctly. Please note it only works with OS X El Capitan. It works with the iPhone Lightning Dock, which is cool I guess. I love how it comes with a lightning cable. It would be cool if they could put the lightning cable port on the front so you could also use it as a wired mouse, or at least use it while it's charging.

    SO DISAPPOINTED !!! Magic Mouse 2

    I bought a new Magic Mouse today to replace my one that died. I connected it to my Macbook Pro and i can only use it to click. It will NOT scroll or swipe. Apple support says the Magic Mouse 2 is designed for OSX 10.11 and up.
    WHAT? What are you thinking Apple!
    Apple support told me they could not find anything different between Magic Mouse 1 and Magic Mouse 2 except one uses batteries and the other is rechargeable.
    I am trying to be productive in my job...not spend WAISTED time thinking about connecting a BLUETOOTH mouse !!! REALLY? This is a no brainer. OSX 10.11 has only been a few months. Way to go Apple engineers and marketing specialists.
    And i can't even find the Magic Mouse 1 on the Apple website.
    So is this Apples way to get 15 million macbook users to upgrade to the new El Capitan OSX.
    This is great Apple. I will shop somewhere else.

    no longer has a green light to show it is charged, nor does it interact with the Mac to show charge level. Inconvenient, and makes no sense.

    Wobbles on flat surface, returning to apple.

    The MM2 I received had a very annoying wobble. It did not lay flat. I needed to send back for this reason.

    Love using it but charging it look darn weird for a product by Apple

    Works extremely well and as expected. Same user experience as the original Magic Mouse.

    Charging it, is a really weird user experience for a product designed in California by Apple. Look like a dead mouse stuff by lightning cable. Completely turn my desk ecstatic around to a completely different level.

    When charging, my magic mouse 2 need to be missing on my desk, thus missing 1 star.

    I think this is the worst mouse I have ever had. Super uncomfortable. I find it total useless because of the design. I really wanted to like it but no chance.

    Nice Improvement...Kind of

    I just bought the Magic Mouse 2 and had a few questions/ design improvements that I thought might be useful. Let me start off by saying that the rechargeable battery is a big improvement that removes a lot of hassle with the Magic Mouse. On that note I wanted to point out the major flaw of it... why would Apple not put the lightning port at the from of the mouse? It is currently at the bottom and it makes no sense. Putting at the from of the device would allow a person to still use the mouse while it was charging and could make it so that while it was plugged in to charge it would function as a wired mouse. This would satisfy both the wired and wireless mouse demographic. I find it inconvenient to have to stop using the mouse just to charge it and frankly, it looks odd having an upside down mouse charging on my desk. Mostly positive, just one major flaw.

    What could be better...

    Thank you for finally coming up with a chargeable version of this wonderful mouse. I have had none of the issues I have read here and must say that it holds a charge very well and charges quickly. My last magic mouse was constantly requiring battery changes and this has saved my life. Thank you Apple, you rock. Oh, and just loving El Capitan and glad I had to upgrade to use these new items.

    You call this a mouse?

    This and the previous generation, is the worst mouse ever bought, and that was probably the last item I will ever buy again from apple. The mouse disconnect all the time, and the cursor does not follow the mouse. the click sometimes delay. I wish i hadnt spent my money for that product. Very disappointed.

    Not worth it

    The mouse is pretty bad compared to others that I have used on my Macbook Pro. Logitech bluetooth works great. Magic Mouse takes a long time to connect via bluetooth while other devices have no problem. Sometimes you have to go to bluetooth to manually connect it. Performance on glossy surfaces (glass, and others) is pretty bad.

    Overall, if I had to do it again, I will never buy this mouse.

    Clicking Clicking, oh the clicking noise

    The Apple store rep told us it would not make the clicking noise anymore. The new MM2 still does--If it's just in an office, no big deal-But we use it in our bedroom. So when one is sleeping, you hear the click click click click....The recharging is better than using rechargeable batteries every week-But I still would expect better from apple..

    Not really sure yet

    I just bought the Magic Mouse 2 yesterday so I'm still getting used to it because it's not totally comfortable to use at first. I use it for my MacBook Pro and I just recently updated it to OS X El Capitan before I bought the mouse and I haven't had any issues with the mouse not working, but I see in the reviews that the mouse doesn't work for some people without El Capitan, what's the deal with that?? Also, I like the fact that its rechargeable and the guy at Apple that helped me said that it can last a few months before needing to be recharged, however I don't like that the charger plugs into the bottom of it because you couldn't use it while it's charging. Overall I like this mouse, I think it's neat enough but I don't honestly think it's worth the $80 it costs.

    Touch features didn't work

    I bought this because I wanted to use the swipe and tap to get the dashboard. Half the time, the swiping didn't work, and the commands are different from the trackpad on my pro! It would randomly zoom in really far, even though it's supposed to know the difference between a "resting" hand from gestures.

    Plus, the charging port?!?! are you KIDDING?!?!

    Returned after less than 48 hours.
