    Not my First Choice

    It works but thats just about it. I like how its rechargeable but you cant use the mouse when its charging due to the port being on the bottom. Good thing it doesnt take too long to charge but this is my biggest gripe. I recommend plenty of other great mice options.

    Everything awful

    1. A full charge of this shiny new suppository has lasted about two weeks (not a month as advertised).
    2. The charging port is on the bottom of the device which prevents using the device. It's a horrible design obviously, but it can't be accidental. I assume it's some deranged sadist middle manager over there at Apple trying to inflict some unspoken deviant worldview onto us. Instead of arguing, just fix the design please. Yes, we're all philistines who don't understand you vision. While you wait for us to become enlightened, please please please just fix it.
    3. The mouse does not get a 9-hour charge in 2 minutes. This is a lie.
    4. Pointing: OK, if you visually check to make sure which direction is up first.
    5. Scrolling: OK, except with the Chrome browser which interprets side scrolling as "back" and "forward" page commands -- SOMETIMES!
    6. Clicking: Awful. 1 out of 10 times, the mouse will do what I can only describe as a half-click. It's as if the software will register a button down, but not a button up. The only other mouse I've ever had this problem with was my Magic Mouse 1, which I replaced with the MM2 and it has the same issue! All other mice I've tried work perfectly with my system. I don't understand this behavior and can't explain it. Sometimes I have to click something 4 or 5 times just to get the mouse to register. I guess the mouse wants to make sure I REALLY want to click that!

    Designer of the Magic Mouse (FAIL)

    It may have been magic had you put the socket at the top like a normal mouse so that it could continue to be used whist being charged!
    Please whoever designed this do everyone a favour and go put your head in an Oven and spare us from anymore idiocy from you.
    Or is it Apple's feeble way of getting consumers to buy two? one to use and one to charge.
    Its an embarrassment, as a company they should be ashamed to sell it.
    In the future it will be recognised as one of the most laughable products ever made.

    Well done Apple for making a Massive Lemon.

    Love the touch function!

    While this mouse doesn't deserve a 5 star rating, it definitely deserves more than people are currently reviewing it. I switched from a logitech mouse (not sure which model), and I am thrilled that I can use gestures with this one. I would use my trackpad all the time if I could, but I find that not having my wrist supported like I do with my mouse pad leads to pain/issues. Being able to have the mouse and use the gestures is the best of both worlds. Also, it works really well with my mousepad. My downsides are obviously the charging function and the ergonomics, but everything else makes up for me.

    I love it!

    I upgraded a couple of months ago to this mouse and love it. I don't have an issue like many of the other reviews that they can't use the mouse when it is charging. A message appears on your screen that the battery is getting low long before it actually stops working. It also charges fast so you can plug it in between tasks here and there if you don't want to fully charge it all at one. I love not having to replace batteries, even using rechargeable ones, this is so much better. Thanks Apple for another winner.

    This is an excellent mouse!!!

    This mouse is brilliant in it's design much like the first one and makes the Mac experience ever so enjoyable. The sleek and comfortable hold all the way to gestures, this mouse is hands down the best one I could ask for. A common opinion that comes out is that the "designers are idiots" for putting the charging port on the bottom. I'd like to start by saying these people are idiots. I agree that the port on the bottom may be "questionable" at best but there's a side of this people aren't considering. Actually it feels like many people wrote the review without using the product for extended periods of time. This mouse can last for an extremely long time on a single charge, almost a month with daily use of about 7 hours (personally). When the mouse runs out of charge, just plug it in for a couple of hours and then it will be fully charged and ready to go for another month. So sure, the mouse is useless when it's being charged but no one will bring up how long it lasts on the off chance it may seem like you can forgive the design. I forgive the design for its excellent service and all those who think it's bad without even trying to use it, they are the idiots.

    Apple is Trying Too Hard

    I never thought that I would say a tech company is trying too hard because forward thinking technology companies typically produces cool products. But Apple it seems is putting forward thinking tech ahead of good common sense. The thing about humans is a lot of us are very impatient. Those of us who are, don't want to be forced to stop working to recharge a mouse, not even for two minutes. Also, the 'battery charge is low indicator' advances to 'battery is empty' WAY faster than the original Magic Mouse. Since Apple decided a very small flat mouse was a good idea they were left with no where to put the USB port besides the bottom. If the port were on either side the cord would get in the way of your fingers when it is plugged in.

    Love this little mouse

    By far the best mouse I've ever used. The touch controls are the best, no other mouse comes close to this. Ability to swipe with one or two fingers is the best feature. I'm a designer and using this in all Adobe products is superb, the sensitivity is just right. I have no issue with charging the mouse once a month when I sleep, not sure why it bothers others so much. But then again, people love to hate on Apple.

    Irritatingly sensitive

    The sensitivity for scrolling is WAY too high, its hard to click on things. Since pressing my finger down on the surface causes my finger to take up a teeny bit more space on the mouse, it thinks I moved my finger and scrolls away from the thing I'm trying to click on.

    Every mouse I've had in the past had settings to adjust the scrolling sensitivity, but Apple "did a ton of testing, trust us its perfect." Yeah, nah. Give us the option to adjust the sensitivity please!

    Please fire the designer

    Why would anyone, ANYONE put the recharge port on the bottom of the mouse, so that you couldn’t use the mouse while it was recharging?!? Did anyone test this thing with real people before shipping? Just because putting a hole on the visible side of the mouse would ruin the esthetics is not a good design choice.

    Terrible and expensive mouse

    This mouse probably looks good and stylish but this is the worst mouse I ever owned. if you have any form of arthritis or hand pain, stay away from this. My hand was hurting so bad after using it for ~30min.
    Please Apple, make sure magic mouse 3 is ergonomic !!!!

    So unhappy with this purchase - totally ridiculous!!

    Firstly, the retailer didn't mention that this was not a battery mouse, like my old Apple mouse that no longer works!
    Maybe I should have known, but I didn't, until I unpacked it.

    So what do I do with all the Apple rechargeable batteries and Apples chargers I purchased from you Apple..can I get a refund?

    Errr, wait minute, I have to plug the USB charge cable in the bottom of the mouse! So I can't use the mouse whilst it's charging? (!).
    What kind of design and function insanity is that! So dumbfounded with this bad 'Design by Apple in California'.

    So now, if this internal rechargeable battery stops working, I have to buy another Apple mouse right..I can't just change the batteries.

    I want my money back and I want a battery mouse, so I can continue to use those Apple rechargeable batteries and Apple chargers..

    Good Mouse - Bad Cable

    Bad Form, Apple. You ship an old USB to Lighting Connector cable with MM2. My spouse just got the MM2 to go with her new MacBook Pro with only USB-C Ports. The Apple Rep that paired this up should have known better. Now we have to by another $25 cable to charge her MM2 or buy some other adapter. The USB-C to Lighting Connector Cable should be included with the purchase of a new MacBook Pro until Apple sorts out their supply chain.

    Dumb design

    How dumb to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse so you can use it while it's charging.

    You can't use the mouse when its changing, insanely stupid!

    Its horrible... when my first magic mouse was ruined by rechargeable batteries leaking, i just bought another mouse.
    But this one cannot be used while charging. What an idiotic idea... The plug could have gone in the side of the mouse and life would be good. The bottom of the mouse is the worst place to put the plug. While charging it looks like a beached whale. If the plug was in the side it would sit flat, AND could still be functional.

    Apple should be ashamed, worst mouse I have ever used!

    I've been in the PC business for 35 years. This mouse doesn't even deserve one star! This mouse and the mouse before it are both the worst mice I have used in my entire career! The bluetooth gets disconnected constantly. Apple blames it on being near other electronics, networks, etc.. There wrong! I've tried to use the Laptop and the mouse far away from any other anything. I've even tried multiple Apple bluetooth mice. Apple support has been NO help in trying to resolve the mouse constantly loosing the connection with this mouse. Apple is obviously aware of what a piece of junk they're still selling. This mouse, the one before it and the remote control on the Apple TV 4 should all be thrown in the garbage where they belong and Apple should stop selling these items to customers! It's sad Apple cannot make a bluetooth mouse that actually works. I'm forced to use another companies products. Shame on you Apple!

    Not user friendly

    Mouse is not made to fit normal people's hands. In order to use it properly, half of my hand had to be on the table just so my fingertips could be in position to press the button. I returned it, it wasn't worth not using my trackpad over the mouse.

    Love this mouse!

    I don't unterstand the other reviews... You DON'T NEED corded use. I need to charge the mouse every 2-4 weeks. Therefor I have to say, that I use the mouse very often (mostly 4-6 hours per day). When I forgot to charge it, I can charge the mouse for 5 minutes and can use it after this short charging time for more than an hour. Great product!

    Very unreliable, fails very so often, worst design ever!

    When charging, this mouse reminds me of an inverted turtle that can't walk!

    It fails all the time. In a good day I only need to re-pair it 3 to 4 times and on each occasion it takes over a minute to be found by my mac. When it does work, the gestures do not and or fail every now and then. Luckily I also have a track pad, which works great!

    I already had my doubts with the magic mouse version 1, but this one it's just dreadful.

    It feels rather unpleasant when reading apple suggestions of "please make sure that your mouse if on and fully charged". I guess by this time, everybody knows that for a device to work it needs to be on. Gee!

    Best Mouse EVER!!

    I am not a computer expert by any means, andI generally do not write reviews, but in this case I just have to say how much I love my new Magic Mouse 2!!! I have spent the last 7 years using my MacBook Pro, which I absolutely love, but after starting my new business this year, decided it was time to upgrade to something to handle my business needs. So, I got an iMac, and it came with the keyboard and the Magic Mouse 2. After using the mouse for several days and figuring out how to use it to get the most out of it, I have decided that I absolutely love this mouse!! Scrolling has never been easier! I love that it is light, sleek, and very responsive! Maybe a slight drawback that the charging port is on the bottom, but not enough inconvenience to change my rating.
