    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...

    I tried to use this mouse for way too long

    I was giving a 5k iMac August 2017 for work. I have been using the Magic Mouse for nearly a year when I could stand it no longer. The slightest swipe of the finger would send pages flying. This was especially true with web pages. I don't know how many forms that went bye-bye with a little swipe of the finger. I tried to adjust sensitivity too but it was too limited.

    I finally broke down and bought a Logitech Freedom Plus M557 blue tooth mouse and am feeling pretty good. I like the ability of the magic mouse to swipe sideways when I need to, I just hated that it did it too easily. The Freedom Plus has a much better solution. You simply push the scroll will right or left and swipe sideways.

    Best mouse on the market. Needs a carry case as it scratches easily.

    I just bought my MacBook Pro a month ago. I have not even charged my mouse yet. It is at 53% as I write this review.
    I haven't had any issues with it at all. I love it. My hands fit the mouse perfectly.
    I came from using Windows with a wired and battery operated mouse and wasn't disappointed with my swap to Apple products. I am very pleased. it does scratch easily though. I recommend putting it in a pocket of your briefcase or get the velvet carry bag on Amazon, to transport it and keep it like new. Mine is already scratched. I took a star away because of it should come with it's own case. :(

    Nothing Magic...

    ...about this Mouse .only 1star. I would fire the ingeneer or creator or developer of this mouse. Who in this world told these guys that the connection at the base of the MAGIC MOUSE was a great idea? I love APPLE we’re a family of 4 and in our home are 3 Ipads, 4 Iphones and 1 Mac, and we DON’T deserve to have a MOUSE like this ... Useless when Charging.

    If I could rate this zero it would get it!

    The only reason I gave this one star is because you can't give it less. Biggest pile of rubbish ever created.
    Magic Mouse ... it's all in the name I feel because if you can get this thing to work reliably then it's actually a miracle rather than magic. Charging point underneath..!! Who the .... thought that was a good idea... have now dragged out an old cable mouse I was using and have gone back to that... reliable, functional and most importantly operational when I need to actually do something.

    Apple... please please please PLEASE end production of the Magic Mouse 2...!

    Charging Feature is a bit of a let down

    Whilst I love the design of the mouse, it's functionality and features.
    The charging is a bit frustrating.

    It would be better to have a charging port perhaps on the front of the mouse so you can still use it when charging.
    I've had to buy another Logitech mouse to use when I need to charge my Magic Mouse.

    Other than that the mouse it great.
    I will say the charge does last a long time so that's a plus.

    Love it!

    I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews about this mouse. I am using this mouse since about 8 years, the old one used a lot of batteries, but the Magic Mouse 2 is amazing! I charge it about every 4-6 weeks and use it daily for about 8 hours. Once you get used to it you just can do about everything with this mouse! I am a designer and create all sorts of vector graphics - most of the time just using the mouse.

    A cheap mouse

    Yesterday afternoon I purchased this so I could use it with my Mac without having to worry about using batteries since it is rechargeable but it didn't include an Apple Lightning Cable so I can't charge this.

    Caution. Apple, I suggest you bring out a new mouse.

    The Magic Mouse - Apple's supposed game-changing mouse. Only, its not. First off, the ergonomics of the mouse are awful, the human hand is not one perfect curve, using this thing with no support under your palm is super tiring after a short period of time, and you cant 'lay' your palm on this thing, because then none of the gestures work, and you cant click. The second awful thing, are the gestures. Apple, your trackpads are amazing, I adore the new magic trackpad 2, and macOS is absolutely phenomenal with all the trackpad gestures, but your mouse doesn't seem to support any of them. Sure we have things like double tap with two fingers for Mission Control or Exposé, but thats not nearly as intuitive as swiping up. On the trackpads we've got the scrunching gestures that can launch Launchpad, or show our desktops. On the mouse? none of those 'shortcuts' are present. If theres no space for gestures on this thing, give us buttons on the side! or give us sliding gestures we could do on the body of the mouse on either side (Kind of like the 'squeeze' buttons on the old, and much better, Mighty Mouse) The last thing i want to talk about is the 20$ price increase when you want the mouse in a different colour. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay an extra 20$ to get another colour just because you guys think "more people will want the black one, so lets jack up the price by 20$" Apple doesn't do this. Dell and HP do this. You don't charge extra for a space grey finish on a MacBook or on an iPhone so why the price increase on the mouse and keyboard? Please fix your mouse, I cant stand having to connect an adapter to my MacBook pro just so i can use your previous gen. USB Mighty Mouse.

    Unusable while charging?!?

    What kind of idiotic design is it to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse?? It's unusable while charging. That's so terrible.

    Horrible Product

    This product doesn't work as it should. It can hardly move from one side of the screen to the other without stalling in some way (while completely charged. The store's only recommendation was charging it). I ended up buying a SECOND Magic Mouse thinking the first was a faulty product. Both have the same frustrating issues. Huge waste of time and money, would NOT recommend.

    Sitting here waiting for my mouse to charge...

    I came the Apple site to look for a wired Magic Mouse option to buy while I sit here and wait for my current Magic Mouse to charge, because it’s unusable while charging. Unbelievable that there’s no wired option AND the current version is unusable while charging. One or the other would be super.

    THIS Mouse has Died

    This Magic Mouse 2 lasted less than a year. Very Unhandy to charge it, since the port is on the bottom of the mouse. It is not possible to use when charging. (The original mouse which had batteries was a MUCH better design. You could just change batteries and keep going.)
    When the MM2 didn't work anymore, I took it back to Best Buy where i bought it, I was told that I needed to go online to talk to Apple. You need a MOUSE to go online.....I did NOT buy another MM2. I bought an off brand mouse... it worked well with my iMac in less than 10 seconds, and cost a LOT less.
    Apple has always been my choice of computers, phones, etc. They are VERY well designed. The MM2 is a failure! It doesn't live up to the Apple standard. Disappointing!
