    Mouse charge port location makes mouse unusable when charging

    I wish they would redesign this to put the charge port to the front of the mouse so it can still be used while charging.

    After exactly one year and a month it died almost slowly

    After exactly one year and a month my magic mouse 2 slowly died during a two weeks span. Just in time so I couldn't replace it for a new one, the magic mouse 2 I got with my iMac timely died right after the first year was passed. It's too sensitive although I guess or hope it can be settled. I bought a plain wired mouse at 15$ and it works way better than the I don't even know how much it is worth in money (not quality, mind). It's outrageous that apple plan every accessory to be very pricy at least I remember it used at least to mean quality. My 2009 mac pro works as fast as my brand new iMac 5k 2015... anyhow that's another subject. Angrily disappointing and I obviously do not recommend. I use only mac for all my stuff but I'm starting if it wouldn't be wise to consider otherwise for the next times, and I'm not the only one to think it... although that will be done with a big heart hake. Very sadly quality doesn't match the prices anymore.

    PS : just be clear it didn't die because of any accident or wet sport of any sort... it's really the electronic that went more and more chaotic until it became completely unreliable.

    Charge on the back?

    Form finally destroys function

    Not being able to use this while recharging is actually incredibly disruptive to work because I or anyone i know tracks the battery level of their mice. Suddenly you have to stop and put the mouse upside down in the middle of active working, a call, or a presentation. This alone made me go back to a different mouse.

    This is a text book example of why form should follow function, not the other way around.

    Seamless

    First ever hardware review since 2006. Decided to review this product since most people rated it poorly. This product works perfectly for me based on how I use it which is as follows

    1) Occasionally - I probably use this product for 5-7 hours each day with my 2016 Macbook Pro 13"

    2) With basic programs - Works very well for the programs I use which includes Chrome, Spotify, Photos and Microsoft Office (Excel and Powerpoint)

    The biggest reason why you get a product like this is to use it with a Mac. It connects well, shows battery life, charges quickly and should work perfectly for 80% of users. People who work with photoshop, or need it for gaming should look elsewhere (based on other comments).

    My Background: I am a 33 year old e-commerce entrepreneur with a background in business and Engineering. I am fairly technical but I really like products that just work (with minimal fuss and tinkering). I own a 13" Macbook Pro (2016, also owned a 2013 model), Iphone 6, Time capsule, Airport Express, Ipad 2, and a few Sonos devices. Keep the above in mind when you read my reviews.

    Save your money!

    I wanted to love this...but it is not up to Apples standards. The look and feel of the mouse are great. But the functionally is than desirable. It has outdated technology, so it can only be used on non shiny surfaces. Pretty sad since a $10 mouse can handle most surfaces. Don’t even think about using this if you play games. Save your money on this one! I am usually one of apples bigest fans and have many of their products. This is a total fail of a device for them.

    Good mouse if you have the claw grip and a small hand

    I can understand the bad review, most of them have big hand. I have a rather small hand + a claw gripping style, it is quite comfortable to grip and move the mouse.

    It goes along really well with the iMac and tracks well enough (not as well as my laser gaming mouse though). It allows me to scroll with ease not only vertically but also horizontally. Double tap to zoom in, double tap with 2 fingers to activate mission control or swipe 2 fingers to scroll between full screen apps. It works so well with the Mac OS.

    Shape is not ergonomic

    This mouse is so flat in design that if you use it for long hours it causes pain to the fingers and wrist. The design is not ergonomic.

    Cannot use while charging. But it did not bother me much as with single charge the battery last for many days and i rarely charge the mouse. But still one would definitely expect to use the mouse when charging.

    Scroll experience is bad as the plastic surface sticks to fingers making it hard to scroll. I really like many other apple products but this one needs to be improved.

    Out of control zoom

    Quickly zooming in on a page may be great for iPhones and tablets. But when I'm working on my iMac in Adobe Illustrator, or looking at an online map (such as Google maps or the MLS listings) it zooms uncontrollably. I can't even touch the sides of the mouse without triggering major zooming. The worst part is that you've taken away the option to turn off the zoom. WHY???

    It seems that Apple has fallen in love with trackpad gestures and wants to stick them everywhere whether it's useful or not. I won't even get into the way Siri totally messed up the Illustrator interface or how someone in Apple support suggested I tell Adobe to change their keyboard commands!!!

    Mac users are not all casual consumers of social media. Some of us make a living with them. This mouse makes that harder.

    A few problems with Magic Mouse 2

    New design has caused a callus on the inside of my pinky. Have not yet figured how to "right click". Can't use while recharging.

    Brand New, won't connect

    Brand new iMac. This "Magic" Mouse 2 worked for about an hour, then stopped. It won't connect no matter what. I can plug the charge cord in and it shows connected and charged, but as soon as I pull it out, it disconnects and will not connect. Back to my 9 year old MS mouse. It just works. Magic Mouse doesn't.

    Cannot rare as a negative 5 stars. Sad.

    Bring back the wired Mighty Mouse!

    I could not be more frustrated with an apple device as the Magic Mouse (both generations). Working mostly on a macbook pro, I need a reliable bullet-proof mouse. This is not it. The bluetooth drops out CONSTANTLY.
    Luckily, I've found a retailer who still stocks the old wired Mighty Mouse. I've ordered it today. No more messing about with unnecessary bluetooth rubbish.

    Great Mouse

    Still the best mouse I ever have.

    Maybe I'm not an extensive user, but I only need to charge it once every 1 or 2 months.

    Magic mouse 2 introduces friction to workflow.

    Hey Apple... did you forget: "the most powerful computer is the one that lets you get your work done" - you invented that phrase.
    The magic mouse 2 fails on that promise. I don't need to explain - anyone using it will see the problem. And it is a problem. I now need to have a backup mouse - just for when Mouse #1 needs feeding.
    Brilliant eh? No, not brilliant. Dumb. This is not Jobs. This is not Apple. This is just dumb.
    Come on Apple, show your stuff. Produce a design that lets your users get their work done.
    You can do it. Just believe in yourself. :)

    Works well and looks like an Apple product

    I think the Magic Mouse 2 suits me well. It blend in well together with my MacBook Pro.

    I could easily have found me a cheaper "PC" style mouse that would have worked just as well, but not as good looking.

    Wonderful Innovation

    I am not sure why there are so many that use the same exact words, "Worst Design Ever", but it seems that the main redesign is to move from disposable batteries to rechargeable. Thank goodness for that, less batteries in the landfill. The Mouse worked great right out of the box and there does not seem to be any erratic movements as some describe. I assume it would be due to static electricity, but as I live in an area that is frequently 26% Rh, I have not had problems. Bravo, Apple!

    Looks good, but is totally unusable in serious work

    To my experience,
    - too sharp upper edges: uncomfortable to hold (what is this s*t with sharp edges of accessories anyways)
    - Mouse is laggy: cursor following EXTREMELY unreliably w/ macbook pro
    (no fix for this so far, but there are lots of suggestions which doesn't really work)
    - Can't recharge it while using
    - in summary, cheap $10 wired mouse does it's job far better than this piece of junk

    Right out of the box this mouse felt nice, minimalistic, and worked immediately. Very satisfied.

    Prove to me your are good... I need to get the trust back

    I just hope that this Magic Mouse 2 last longer than my previous one....
    After only 18 months my first MM2 stopped working....
    After 2 long calls to Apple support I was .... told buy a new one !!!

    To say I am disappointed ..... well I am
    Now I have an old dinosaur one attached to my computer at my work place and it is still going after 5 years !

    Having said that the new one so far is working fine... I've only had it a week... I just don't quite have that trust back....
