    Not bad for general computing

    I've used the Magic Mouse 2 for about a month now, and for me at least, there are elements of this mouse that I like very much, but also elements of it that prevent it from being a great mouse:

    pros:
    1. I do like the sleek form factor of the mouse, and the design is consistent with Apple's modern, stylish lineup of products. However, the small form factor, despite its pleasing appearance, also poses issues (below).
    2. The bluetooth connection works flawlessly, never have issues with connection, and I also like that I can click on the mouse to bring my macbook pro out of sleep.
    3. There's really no competition in this space: the mouse supports a number of gestures that are comparable to gestures you can perform on the trackpad. This makes the mouse very suitable for general mac use.
    4. Works well on a wooden table without a mousepad.
    5. Good battery life.

    cons:
    1. Due to it's small, and uniform form factor, it's ergonomically awkward and uncomfortable. Having migrated from using PCs primarily, I was used to my Logitech MX master, which I could use comfortably all day long. Hence, I'll still stick with my Logitech when I'm working on applications that requires a lot of mouse use (such as Capture Pro 10, Photoshop, etc.)
    2. The right click, while it works, is very inconsistent. I think I've found a sweet spot to click to get the right click working, but it's certainly not as consistent or easy (as in requiring no additional effort) as using mice with a dedicated button for right clicking.

    My recommendation would be to still go ahead and get this mouse if being able to do gestures is important to you. But if you have large hands and/or require all day comfort and precise left & right clicks, go for a 3rd party solution.

    One of the worst computer hardware products I ever used

    It's too small for my hands, it does not fill them. My hand hurts using this mouse. And it's not an overly big hand.
    It's pretty but that's it, not ergonomic.
    Sometimes it tilts while moving, as it's wider at its top.

    Even at tracking speed set to the maximum, it's slow as it does not move the pointer up/down at the same speed as it does left/right.

    I'm fed up using this mouse. It totally spoils the Mac user experience.

    The charging port at the bottom is just ridiculous. This is like putting the fuel port of a car somewhere behind the rear wheel..

    It takes much for me to write a review.
    But this product seems to have never been tested by anyone before it went to sales.
    I am going to return it and replace it by a simple PC mouse.

    Sorry guys, but if I hadn't used a Mac before and wouldn't know that it's the mouse that makes using the Mac so cumbersome, I'd return the whole computer...

    One Downside

    My old magic mouse was not working right with my new MacPro so a new one was bought for me as a present. I love the idea of a lighting port for charging it (less batteries need to be bought) but the location of the port was the only one flaw/downside. It probably should have been placed on the side of the mouse instead of the bottom of it so that it can be used while charging if needed too. I love all Apple products, never have a single issue with any of them. If you are wanting a good quality product, this is it.

    Like this mouse but...

    This mouse works well as advertised but I wish Apple would bring back the friendly green power light of the original Magic Mouse. I am visually impaired and that light was a much clearer indicator to me that the mouse was powered on. I hope someone from Apple sees this review and contacts me !

    Would prefer NO STARS - Looks nice but totally useless and overpriced

    Thought I would by this to go with my MacBook pro because it looks the business.

    However, it is really troublesome to connect to the MacBook (a 10 pound logitech bluetooth doesn't seem to have any issues), you keep having to go to settings and search for it.
    Also many games require you to have a right-click and the mouse's double swipe alternative just doesn't work when I need to left click at the same time (you know the drill - Right click aim, left click fire).
    The mouse is very flat on the desk, so hard to manouver.
    Lastly, which blithering idiot at apple put the lightning port on the bottom so the mouse is unusable while charging? I know you don't need to charge too often, but really how hard would it have bee to put the port at the front of the mouse?

    This is different to a normal mouse just because apple want to be different, not because it is any good.

    Excellent

    Huge improvement from the first one. No connection issues, excellent tracking. I think the reason for people giving it a lower rating is because they couldn't be bothered to read the tech specs and had out of this word expectations.

    Outstanding Mouse

    First, to all those complaining about the charging port at the bottom of the mouse...GET OVER IT. Are you really that stupid and inept that you MUST be able to charge when using it? Charge it overnight or when you are not using your Mac/mouse. That's all you need to do. My first charge lasted 49 days before it got to 15% with daily use. I last charged it on Dec 23 and almost 3 weeks later I am still at 75%. I first thought the charging port was rather stupid but now I realize this keeps you from keeping the mouse plugged in all the time. GREAT!

    Second, to those who are looking for reviews to help you figure out rather or not to buy....all I can say is BUY IT. This is one of the most precise and comfortable mouse I have ever used. I liked the Magic Mouse 1, but I totally LOVE my Magic Mouse 2. It's smooth. It works on many surfaces my other optical devices do not work 9even my Magic Mouse 1). It's very comfortable to use ( you don't hold it like a large mouse). It's a very well built mouse and doesn't feel cheap. Battery life is insane...really. The battery is what impresses me the most.

    Just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

    Seamless Integration and Excellent Performanc

    my iMac came with a wireless mouse and I enjoyed it and used it a great deal. It was time to replace it due to damage, over some 4-5 years. The new one came in no time at all.

    The delivered mouse is pre-charged so no waiting for an over night charge to begin.
    I followed the very simple guide and was using the new mouse in less than a minute. what can I say. Its wonderful.

    Amazing feeling but a useless tool

    The worst thing for me is the quality of the wireless connectivity. I get so much lag when using the mouse that its just ridiculous for a £80 mouse and its literally in front of the laptop! When using apps that need precision, like photoshop or the office suite you get quite a lot of noise from all the touch surface like miss-clicks, unwanted zoom etc. You can deactivate those but why buying this mouse in the first place since you are not going to use its features.

    Its looking nice on the table but I wouldn't recommend this to a professional that wants high productivity.

    Truly Magical!

    I really don't know why there is so much hate about this mouse on the Internet(maybe because of the price). The moment I unboxed it, I fell in love with it. It's beautiful and yes, Apple does NOT consider aesthetics over function. Its a mouse which might take some time in adapting. Initially, I had little issues in using it and I was tempted to use the trackpad on my MacBook Air 13' but I forced myself to use this mouse and now, my muscle memory has this mouse. The way you glide your fingers is so much fun.

    Pls note I don't use mouse with my work computer(Windows laptop) and did not use mouse for years so this will give you a fair idea that how much I love it that it has made to use this beautiful device. Thanks again Apple. Price is a little steep which is for all the products made by Apple.
    Peace out.

    Perfect for certain people

    I use this mouse for maybe 2 hours a day, and I've had it for about 3 days and it says it's still at 90%, If your using this all day I wouldn't recommend it. You will need a mousepad if you plan on using it on a glass desk. The main downside to this, is that the charging port is on the bottom of it.

    Good Mouse

    It is a nice mouse with good battery life and a nice feel. It also works on more surfaces than my old HP mouse. Perhaps a little too expensive and the top part shifts some when it is held, but it is nice other than that

    Freezes - jumps - UGH!

    I've tried for months to get used to this mouse. It jumps, freezes, swipes too easily or not at all. I want my hold PC mouse back again.

    Its Good and Bad

    I bought this yesterday and I had to say it looked sleek and slim when it came out of the box. It connected well with my Macbook Air (2015). Then it just went downhill from there. It could move and stuff, but when it came to scrolling, it couldn't. I tried everything and it still didn't work as well as the more gestures. Seriously, Apple? Also, who decided to put the charging port on the bottom? This has to be the worst Apple product ever...

    Junk. Not well designed.

    > Mouse repeatedly loses connection.
    > Even when connected mouse click often non-functional. Able to move curser but cannot select or click on anything.
    > Battery life extremely poor. Batteries last only days. Bought a Logitech to replace it. Logitech has ONE battery with a claimed 18 month life. TWO batteries in the Magic Mouse last a week or two max? Some engineering .... :(

    What a waste of money. I got suckered into the Magic Mouse charger as batt life was so bad. Now that the mouse has failed I'm out the price of the charger too. I've used Apple products for over thirty years with no problems. In the past two years I've had to return one Apple TV (freeze on bootup), 2 iPhone 6's (black screen). QC and design has gone down the tubes. Sad.

    Magic Mouse 2

    Of all the people who have been complaining about the the charging port being at the bottom, I am sorry, but especially those people who have been long time Mac users, are incredibly whiny and probably don't realise that 2 mins of charge is worth of 9 hours of battery use for this mouse. And don't any of you sleep eat or get off the computer at some point? It takes 2 hours of charging to give it a month's use so stop whining. I charged mine for barely 15 mins and have used it for the past several hours and my battery shows as 10% so all these people saying they have to keep charging it may have a faulty mouse or there mac needs updating because mines is no problem. Yes, getting used to this design is the only problem I see nothing else, oh and sometimes its confusing differentiating between left and right clicks but that's only because I haven't used this sort of mouse before. Other than that people have to stop complaining, none of you have ever made a mouse and there hundreds of different types so of course one size won't fit all. And it probably is the most understated and elegant mouse of all, its not being lazy, but being sufficient. Anyone who wants a candy coloured mouse should look elsewhere.

    Terrible connectivity.

    Terrible connectivity, every one of them in my office disconnects constantly. Only fix is resetting PRAM every time it happens.

    This is probably one of the worst product i ever purchased.

    Magic Mouse

    I love the Apple mice, they are great. I've had them for 10+ years now, starting with the mighty mouse and had the magic mouse 1 and now the magic mouse 2. There is no mouse that compares with it, the technology and ergonomics are just great.

    Two negatives about the mouse is:

    1. The lighting port is at the bottom of the mouse so you can't use it while charging it although it charges very, very quickly and the battery lasts very long. It just seems like a stupid design while they could've put the port on the side somewhere.

    2. There is no more on indicator light at the bottom next to the on switch. I am used to flipping the on switch on the magic mouse 1 and seeing the green light which indicates that it is on and has battery life. You can see it inside the macOS though so it's fine.

    Great mouse, no regrets, thank you Apple!

    Doesn't move very well

    It goes back and forth great, but up and down - not really responsive. I have had it for 4 months and not thrilled that I paid over $70 for a mouse that decided it doesn't like to move up and down - especially since i'm a photographer and it's pretty useful to be able to move a mouse up and down while editing! Sheesh! And really? Charging from the bottom? And it would be nice to have something blink if the battery was low. Apple is not what it used to be.
