    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.

    Stupid design

    I COMPLETELY endorse the review by Andrew C from London. Apple's designers must have been asleep when they came up with this design - absurd having the charging port in the bottom of the mouse! Ouch! I returned mine. Will wait for Mouse 3!

    I miss being able to change the batteries

    This mouse works just like the old magic mouse, however it now has a non removable battery that you have to charge. At first I really didn't mind that. The battery actually holds a charge for a good amount of time. However when you do need to charge it, you need to plug the cable in on the bottom of the mouse. So you can't use it while it's charging. Since it always seems to die when I want to use it it drives me crazy. Otherwise it's OK.

    Love it.

    Maybe a previous batch had problems to elicit all the negative reviews, but I love it. Sure, you have to get used to not accidentally clicking or scrolling. But once you get used to it, the swiping, two-finger swiping, scrolling, zooming, and right clicking are all very intuitive and useful. I've been using it at work daily for the past two weeks without charging it, and the battery is currently at 79%. It says it charges quickly, so, while the charging port is stupidly on the bottom, it doesn't seem like it will be too much of an inconvenience when I finally have to charge it.

    The worst design descision on earth!

    I came to write this review using ONLY MY KEYBOARD (!) because the battery of my magic mouse is out and there is no possibility of using it while plugged in and charging . At least I now know that you can navigate through the web without using a mouse :)
    Back to the topic: I'm a product designer and generally love Apples products. But I have to admit that the decision to PLACE THE PLUG ON THE BOTTOM of the mouse is the worst idea on earth – I even use this often as a bad example of product design.

    I still don't know how this could happen to a company like Apple. But I hope they^ll fix this desaster soon.

    Think I'll have to buy a Microsoft mouse now...

    Worst Battery Solution

    I like this mouse until it alert of low battery. I am a proffesional designer and well focused of the job daily. When the battery get low, all of my work stufs stop, and i start to swear Apple's weak design mouse.

    Finally a mouse that holds its own charge... and for a long time!

    Perfect upgrade to the previous battery-powered Magic Mouse. My old one lasted many years without a hitch, and my new MM2 came with a new computer purchase. I guess I don't understand the barrage of negative comments about this product. My favorite is the complaint about the charging port being located on the underside of the mouse, so you can't charge and use it at the same time. Oh brother! Charge it overnight-- duh! I'm on the computer all day, every day and it holds a charge for WEEKS. After a couple of weeks I'll check the battery level and it's usually still about 75% charged. If someone can't remember to plug the mouse in once every couple of weeks, then the problem lies with the user, not the mouse. My only slightly negative comment would be about the price. Yes, a bit pricey. But I don't mind paying for something that holds its own charge for long periods, is comfortable in the hand, glides around easily, is durable and will last me many years of clicking.

    Interesting toy, sadly not on par with proper mice

    The good:
    Beautiful design, best quality, battery lasts forever, touchable surface is different and interesting, recharges rapidly (I think the charging port is in good location btw), can scroll sideways like on touchpad, very easy to connect, Mac's mouse settings are really beautiful for this mouse, highly configurable, comes in the most beautiful packaging, which also includes a Lightning cable.

    The bad:
    Very uncomfortable and not ergonomic. Does not glide on surfaces as good as the cheapest Logitech mice. Sensor is not precise. So, it is not well suitable for graphics work, or gaming, or music production, or basically anything at all. There are too few gestures, and they don't match touchpad's gestures. For me, the worst thing are the sharp edges of top plastic. It rubs my fingers and make them hurt. I still haven't figured out how to hold this mouse. I automatically start using MacBook's touchpad which is the best touchpad there is...which, combined with extremely bad ergonomics of the mouse, not precise movements, scratching on most surfaces and lack of decent gestures, renders this mouse totally useless.

    The verdict:
    Buy this mouse if you want your mouse to have Apple's logo, looks and quality. If you need a mouse to get the work done, look elsewhere. To be honest, this is a tough decision, since the mouse looks so nice. So, it comes down to whether you want to see and show off your mouse, or actually use it.

    good mouse

    I have been using it for a few weeks, as a replacement to my razer orochi elite. This mouse is awesome! The bluetooth works out of the box (as opposed to razer's), the gestures are awesome, battery life good, my hand doesn't feel like anything has been sacrificed ergonomics wise, the only thing that annoys me is accidentally gesturing "back" while scrolling, altho I know where and how to disable this feature, I like to be able to swipe back and forward, so just gotta re-learn where to put my finger when scrolling. Also not being able to use it while charging (I've yet to charge it tho) doesn't seem so bad - 2hrs per month of using trackpad is sorta alright.

    First Experience With A Magic Mouse

    For my first experience, I would say it'a not all that bad. The mouse has some good functionality such as the built in gestures and that 3/4 of the top is touch enabled. Making scrolling or switching between applications simple.

    -The Touch is easy to use, creating a few gestures that help you control your Mac interface makes it simple however there is a little bit of a learning curve to it. For people who aren't indulged in tech, this might be difficult. They have gifs in the settings menu that show how to use each gesture.
    -Battery Life if superb so far, 1 week of on/off use about 5-10 hours daily and it's still going.

    -The ergonomics of this things are ridiculous. It looks like they were trying really hard to make a mouse that was different and amazing compared to all the rest. It doesn't feel good in my hand and it just looks odd with sharp edges all around the top. It's impractical to say the least.

    -You would think that when you turn it on, it pairs with your computer knowing that's the only device it has ever been used for? nope. Every single time I have to turn it on, I have to go into the settings and click to connect it. This is the most expensive bluetooth product I've ever bought and the only one that has no memory of device authorizations. Sometimes it does not even show up on my computer.

    -This is more of a personal con, but I have a MacBook Pro Space Gray and I like my products looking sleek and clean. They released the original Magic Mouse when the Mac computers were originally white. They have yet to change it. Yet they have the magic touchpad with the other finishes. It would have been nice to pay $80 for a mouse and have it match my computer.

    Over all, I wouldn't suggest this mouse. I got it for the ease of access and have not had the experience I have with most other apple products. It should get 1 star, but have a touch enabled mouse gets it 2. Wouldn't ever purchase again unless it were $10, what it's worth.
