    it's really annoying

    I wish I would have read these reviews before I wasted a good group of cash on this not-magic-at-all mouse (mine is white). I was just very excited about having all apple products when I purchased my MacBook Pro. To use this mouse, I have to do very large arm movements to get it to move anywhere. As soon as I connected it and started using it for the 1st time, I could tell this mouse was going to be hard to use in comparison to a usb plug-in (with a right click button!) mouse I was using on another laptop..I miss that other mouse dearly now. I'd really like to get my money back or be able to get another apple accessory instead of this one. Is that possible?

    The future is here (too bad so many don't know the past)

    I've been a Mac user since the beginning of Apple and I can say this Magic Mouse 2 is a joy to use. No, it might not make your cappacino in the morning and you might have some petty complaints as I see in so many reviews but I don't see too many people going back to their 1998 model mouses. Great job Apple.

    Who was the genius that designed this? They need to be fired

    This has to be the worst design ever. My 11-year-old nephew could have come up with a better design than having the mouse lay on its side in order to charge!!!! I just bought this mouse today and I'm ready to return it. I'm normally an Apple fan but this takes the cake. Where is Apple's QC dept? I can't believe that such a badly designed product actually got into production. Since they only want to hire the elite of tech, how did this get past the trash can? Is Apple sleeping on their skills? Seriously, Apple needs to look to the consumer for feedback before they create another dud like this. Get it together or third-party manufacturers will be getting rich off your huge design mistakes. I only gave it two stars since the shape of the mouse didn't change (thank god)

    Not a good design

    This might be a good design if you have NEVER used another mouse before but stay away if you have, it will takes a long time to get used to it . This is the very first bad design by apple, steve would have fired the whole team

    Easily the worst design in any mouse. Ever.

    I won't rewrite what plenty of people have already expressed in previous 'reviews'. I'll just say that applying this design to not one but even a second generation of a product, apparently without even considering that you've designed a complete dud that is even likely to hurt its unfortunate users in the (shockingly) short term due to its non existent ergonomics is, well it's baffling. To the designer of this torture device, please stop trying to design things. Bring the rest of the team coffee or something. You'll still be contributing to the overall effort and it'll be an instant bump up in your positive impact on the end-product. Thanks.

    My mouse lost connection 3 times while I wrote this.

    The Mandatory 1 star is 100% too much star.

    Great Mouse

    Love its ergonomy (before Magic Mouse 2 I've been using a $3 mouse from a Chinese store, that made what it was supposed to, but not very comfortably, and had to buy a little mousepad with a wrist-bump). My only complain is the location of the Lightning Port. It could be in the same spot the cable of the Mighty Mouse (yes, it would make the mouse taller, but I could live with that), or it could stay in the same place with the introduction of a Magic Mouse with optional Wireless Charging.

    Lacks Gesture and Control

    This mouse is VERY poor for the price.
    The trackpad offers so much more gestural interaction that the mouse feels like an incomplete tool. Half the time the "right click"/"two finger click" doesn't register and you're just clicking through to things unintentionally.

    If you're a designer like me, this can be a real nightmare. It also doesn't have a zoom out function, which is obnoxious while navigating large design files. There's actually no way to even quit an application from the apple task bar using this mouse so you have to either use the trackpad, or get a different mouse... literally. Even though I have the mouse, I can't even use it while I design.

    This thing is a HUGE waste of money, do not recommend especially if you are a designer! Just get yourself a wireless mouse from someone else, the markup here is huge, it doesn't even integrate well into the other mac interfaces. Clearly just more money-pushing, incomplete product launches from Apple. Wait for the next one or get a mouse somewhere else!

    Great mouse, but the charging is bone headed.

    What was Apple thinking to make it totally impossible to use this mouse while it is being charged? The charge port is on the bottom so the mouse cannot be used! The good news is ten minutes of charge will last for hours. One minute will usually get you going.

    Stopped working

    Terrible charging design and one day decided to stop working. Switched to a $10 microsoft mouse and could not be happier.

    Not designed very well Imo.

    The ergonomics of this product haven't been thought about much, if not thought about at all. It doesn't fit the hand (small) and do I need to say anything about the charging port? Shocking. its on the base of the mouse. The Mac alerts you when the battery is almost drained from it so you need to charge it but can't carry on using it. You just have to hope you remember to charge it once you have finished!

    Typical beautiful Apple design

    Like all Apple products this mouse is incredibly well made. Although it is expensive, the quality more than justifies the price.
    Most complaints are about the charging port being underneath, but it is hard to see were else it could go and still retain the beautiful sleek design. And like all rechargeable devices you soon learn to plug it in, it's not rocket science.

    Definitely a "must buy"!!!

    No using while charging = FAIL

    I can’t believe this hasn’t been changed yet. I’m typing this on my phone because my freaking mouse is charging and I can’t use my Mac!!! Simply put...I hate this mouse.

    It works but upside down charging is senseless

    PROS
    The mouse works as intended most of the time.

    CONS
    1. I routinely run out of energy on the mouse. Why? Because MacOS fails to warn me.
    2. When recharging, I have to flip it upside down and plug it in. This leaves me mouse-less for about an hour while it charges.
    3. Why an hour? Because there is no battery charge indicator on the mouse and it's disconnected from the laptop.

    CONCLUSION
    Decently engineered hardware but horribly unthought out design. A first year HCI student would know better than to disable usage during a normal lifecycle process on an input device. Not providing a mechanism to inform the consumer of the charge strength exacerbates this issue. This is yet another bad design decision by Apple.

    Serious recharging issues

    The issue that I have with this mouse is that it seems to call for recharges very often (apparently doesn't hold a long charge) - and then I get no warning until it is just about to die. Why not warn someone with something like "there are only 10 hours left of power" so I could then recharge during bed and not interrupt my workflow.

    As others have said, the recharging doesn't allow you to use it while recharging, so I have experienced major interruptions to workflow several times in the few months I've had it. It is not at all a quick recharge.

    Overall I am quite annoyed I paid so much for this mouse but there are major usability problems.

    Stay Away, Worst Mouse Ever !

    This mouse is an atrocious piece of technology, Ive had 2 defective units now and the third replacement just barely works. The mouse will scroll left and right through pages at random when trying to move up and down on a page and trying to right click is 50/50, Save your money and buy from another manufacturer.

    Sweaty hands? forget it.

    The glass used is not ideal. If your hands are not 100% dry then your fingers stick to the glass in an unpleasant way (rub your fingers around a wine glass and you'll get the idea. I wonder why they couldn't use the same textured silver glass that's used on the track-pads on the macbooks. That texture has the most pleasant feel to it of all trackpads I've felt, and would be perfect for their mouses too.

    So good I bought a second one!

    I agree with others who are incredulous that people rate this at just one star simply because of the recharging port being on the bottom. The mouse, itself, is incredible. The charge lasts me—and I use the mouse over 8 hours each day—at least 45 days; so, SHAME ON ME if I can't remember to plug it in one night every 45 days. SHAME ON THE NAYSAYERS for trashing an incredible tool over this one design flaw—which I admit I would rather see changed, but is certainly NO DEAL-BREAKER for any reasonable person.

    Great mouse with stupid design

    Absolute superb mouse to use. Glides effortlessly, touch/swipe is accurate and dependable compared to earlier versions. But... It's just ridiculous that the charge port isn't on the top end so the mouse can be used while charging. They'd have a corded/cordless hybrid, and I wouldn't lose 2 work hours waiting for it to charge before I can do anything. I only have one spare USB port on my iMac, so can't even plug in a corded mouse while it's charging. Stupid, stupid, stupid design.

    No ergonomics

    This mouse is not ergonomic, the sensor is terrible, I'm not gonna start about charging port location meme. I don't recommend this product to anyone.
