    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.

    Ignore the reat

    I’m not sure why all of the other reviews are so horrible about this Product. I have Been using this guy for a month now and still haven’t had to charge it. I feel when I do charge it will be a little bit annoying however I’m a smart enough guy to know to charge it during the night when I’m not trying to use it. Other than that this mouse works great and I love the fact that it’s Bluetooth connecting!

    Great for most tasks, depending on what you need.

    Magic Mouse 2 is an improvement over the original (built in rechargeable battery with lightning cable provided and not dealing with a plastic tab which the battery door that wears out). As for not being able to use it when charging, of course it would help to have the charging port in front of either or both sides to use as a wired mouse. I have been able too scroll reading articles while charging by having MM2 on its side next to my MB Air and having the cursor somewhere useful so that it could scroll the article being read. Aside from technical matters, the rarely asked question is does this mouse do what you need it to do or not, and go from there.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    WOW! I seen all of the bad reviews on here, and almost didn't order this mouse because of it. I'm so glad I decided to go ahead and order it. My wrist would get so tired with having to use the track pad on my Mac. I know that everyone has their own opinion, but my goodness, this mouse is incredible. The space between the mouse and my hand allows airflow and keeps my hand from getting too hot. I absolutely love it and definitely recommend ordering it! Props to apple for making an amazing product, yet again!

    Best mouse I have ever used. (And that is quite a lot)

    It is very clear the dingbats posting negative reviews here have never actually used this mouse. It is, simply, brilliant. Beats my old Apple trackpad hands down. Beats my wireless and wired Apple mice from the days of yore hands down. Try it, It is, simply, the best mouse you are ever likely to use. Tremendous charge life, too.

    Ignore the twits. This one really is one out of the box.

    I’ve been using mice, trackpads, you name it, of all shapes and colours since they first appeared in the mid 1980s. This one truly is a remarkable leap for anyone with a brain in their head! Sure, try it before you buy, but you truly won’t be disappointed. Best mouse I have ever used, bar none.

    Works Perfectly

    The mouse itself is sleek in design and extremely minimalist. Which from the aesthetic standpoint is honestly amazing. Comfort level is pretty good though it took some getting used to switching from a normal larger more bulkier mouse. People complain about the charging but honestly, the mouse holds a charge long enough for it to not really matter that the charger port is on the bottom.

    Poor Design

    So someone in the technical design said 'customer doesn't need to use the mouse while it is being charged. he could wait' and everyone else in the team nodded their heads? How did this product even pass the use case test?

    Great product

    This mouse is great I don’t understand all of the bad reviews about not being able to use it while it charges! Since the battery lasts for soo long I think it’s doable to let it charge for a night and then be able to use it for the next few weeks of use

    I like it

    I previously used a prior version that required batteries. It was pretty awful -- it skipped, it frustratingly just stopped working for periods of, say, ten seconds, and it was often imprecise when I was using Photoshop (I am a complete amateur). A patterned mousepad fixed the imprecision, but the skipping continued. This new mouse does not skip. It's a pleasure to use. I tend to rest the heel of my hand on the desk and use my fingers to move the mouse, which works fine. I am surprised at the negative reviews.

    Good Try - Try Harder

    I hope someone from R&D will read this, apparently.

    Mouse looks super cool, but is not workable.
    Using more than for 1,5-2 hours gives you pain.
    Charging function is interesting, with a hint for gay community.

    I use only apple devices, all of them, but this mouse is a failure.
    Please develop an ergonomic vertical mouse, smth like Anker - price it at 150 EUR and everyone will buy it anyway.

    Fail

    This design is beautiful to observe. However, a sculpture is not its purpose. The ergonomic element, which is essential for mice, is absent. There's no consideration for how your fingers interact with the device. The sleek design is too slippery, and you cannot properly grip it. Worst of all, the tiny crevice between the upper shell that presses against the lower body to engage its functions continually pinches the skin on your fingers. Not that the pinch is painful or significant but worse, it's extraordinarily annoying. It also collects the oil off your skin, ewe. For the price, it should be superior to anything else. Apple fails on this one and should replace all of them to compensate for the inconvenience that they cause. Boo, hiss! I am waiting for the delivery of a better design that correlates to the premium charge for this product. Don't buy this mouse!

    Best Mouse I've Ever Used

    Sorry to see many are are having problems or just don't like the Magic Mouse 2. Like so many other techie products, I never quite understand how so many have such crazy issues, where I am just plain in love with the product.

    The response for the mouse (and keyboard) is so accurate, it's transparent that it's wireless. The smooth, trackpad-like top surface is crazy fun, one of my top features. I use my iMac daily and have only found the need to charge the Magic Mouse 2, once. With 72% charge remaining on my second charge done several weeks ago. And the charging is so fast, you don't even realize it. It feels good in my hand and feels and looks like a quality product. Something we expect from Apple.

    I highly recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to everyone. Of course not everyone will feel the same, so we have options. :-)

    Position of charging port

    It is too easy to forget to charge either the new keyboard or mouse. The biggest problem is that the port is at the bottom (unlike with the keyboard) so it cannot be used while charging. I have been caught out several times now. The new mouse and keyboard also requires you to keep a charging cable handy. I keep mine plugged in the back of my iMac because it is not easy to access. Now my iMac looks unsightly. I cannot think of any pros over the previous rechargeable battery version. Worst design choice yet by Apple.

    Form Does Not Follow Function in Magic Mouse Design

    I am a graphic designer, detail & accuracy, in Photoshop or Illustrator and InDesign is critical. Using the Magic Mouse ULTRA sensitive touch surface, just removing my finger after an input click moves the item I have just very carefully and accurately placed or edited. I almost always must then resort to the Magic TrackPad with iMac to get some semblance of accuracy - It drives me crazy because this reveals the Magic Mouse was a carelessly conceived design - apparently never tested well in "Real World" use.

    To make this mouse useable I ask only that the System Preferences Panel for the Magic Mouse, offer an option(s) to reduce the surface function or sensitivity to more like the magic trackpad or former Mouse with the tiny roller ball. This would solve the erroneous input with attendant frustration. The surface of this mouse is WAY too sensitive, to the point of being ridiculous. If I am setting type and using the Type Panel say in Illustrator and my finger touches the surface, the point size changes, I don't even have to apply pressure - it's insane.

    For professional graphic designers we don't need or want all the consumer whizzbang gimmicks, we need dependable accuracy and simplicity of use…something Steve Jobs would have totally agreed with… though I do remember watching him introduce the onstage demo of the MagicMouse with Touch Surface - revealing an embarrassing difficulty the person giving the demo had with the Magic Mouse - he kept experiencing some of the issues I have just described – Ding Ding Ding! Didn't anyone at Apple notice this, then immediately start working on implementing a solution…I've got one: Start Over!

    Apple, I hardly recognize you - where is the ghost of Steve Jobs to guide you back to the design ethos: Form Follows Function?

    Good, but ridiculous

    I recently upgraded from the MM1 to the MM2. The MM2 is just as nice to use in that it glides well and has the same functionality, but I just cannot for the life of understand the design choice of putting the recharge port underneath. I appreciate that the mouse is fast charging, and a few minutes on the charger is enough to get you through a work day, but come on!? Just put the lightning connector in the front of the mouse so that it transforms into a wired mouse temporarily while charging. This was such a glaringly obvious solution that could easily have been achieved without affecting the look and feel of the MM2. And you might think "who is actually likely to run out of battery and find themselves inconvenienced?", well this literally happened to a co-worker of mine the other day. I stuck my head into his office and asked what he was up to, he replied "nothing, because I'm waiting for my mouse to recharge". His mouse was in front of him lying on its back with the cable plugged in.

    Anyway, it's good, but definitely gets chalked up as another of Apple's hair brain designs.

    The worst apple product I ever use

    This mouse definitely has some design defect. Wen I use some text editors, it often zoom in or out when I try to copy something...
