    Crazy bad mouse

    1. It accidentally scrolls everything but especially maps.
    2. Right click sometimes doesn't work.
    3. It loose connection once per week.
    4. You must use Terminal to set correct speed because it's still too slow on the maximum available setting.
    5. You can't use it while charging. (For example, you can use Apple Trackpad while charging.)
    6. It covers by scratches in few days of use.

    I changed mouse but it didn't help to resolve any of the described issues. I'm sure that nobody at Apple use it because it's almost impossible to use it.

    Poor ergonomics

    I can live with the design that the charging port is at the bottom and that you cannot use the mouse while charging. We could solve this simple problem by charging it before calling it a day. It does charge quickly, though. So even if you get caught in the middle of something, you can plug it in, get a coffee, and get enough juice to get the job done.

    As I have aged however, I cannot tolerate the very poor ergonomics in this mouse. First, it is way too flat which forces your hand to lay flat on the desk in an uncomfortable and unnatural position — our hand naturally curves when relaxed. It is very very unnatural to do the right click as it forces your index (or middle) finger to stretch to the right. This may not sound much if you have to do it once or twice a day, but after 30 years or so using a computer, it adds up. Esthetics aside, most of the comfortable mice on the market are shaped like a rock so our hand rests naturally and comfortably on it. These mice have a hump in the middle to separate your index finger from the middle finger to allow the latter to right click without you making any effort (mentally or physically). The MM-2 is no doubt pretty and smart in using the entire surface as a track pad, which eliminates moving parts to track. But it is uncomfortable to use so I ended up using a Logitech mouse instead. What a shame and there is still no replacement for this after all these days ...

    Best mouse I have ever owned

    I absolutely loved the original Magic Mouse, but the Magic Mouse 2 makes something great even greater. The fit, feel, and functionality of the Magic Mouse 2 makes it the best mouse I have ever owned. I have read numerous reviews of people complaining that you can't charge while using it at the same time. Either these individuals don't realize how much it would mess up the shape by having a port at the top, or these individuals have the worst time management skills known to man that they can't charge a mouse overnight or when not using their desktop.

    Apple! Can't you see it is nowhere near good enough?

    Lots of customers have politely mentioned the inconvenience of having a mouse that is unusable while it is recharged.
    This is not just poor design it is unforgivably bad design. It is rediculous. It is bad enough that they have to be recharged. I have had Macs since 1987 and never given the mice, or their leads, a second thought. They all outlasted the Macs they came with and worked perfectly throughout. Now in 2017 I have to wait while this waste of expensive materials charges itself up. On it's back with the lightning lead sticking up stupidly. Really, really stupidly. Apple has started making toys. Not even good ones, just pretty ones. I am sitting here looking at it now, unable to use my very expensive Mac and feeling unbelievably angry and frustrated. It is pretentious and unnecessary overdesign, masquerading as simplicity and ending up beyond inadequacy.

    Great Product

    I'm coming off a PC-based system to a Mac and I love it all, including my Magic Mouse. What's not to love? Scrolling between programs or apps and scrolling within a page without all that annoying clicking. It's comfortable in my hand and has a substantial feel. It moves easily on a standard mouse pad. Great product.

    Magic Mouse 2

    I've had two of the magic mouse and each one has failed after several months of use. I have tried reinstalling the software but this hasn't worked. It's a great idea but extremely unreliable and frustrating as you need to ensure you have a plug in mouse at the ready for when this one ultimately fails.

    A bit pricy but a nice product

    Purchased this as a replacement for my original Magic Mouse just because. Typical Apple build quality. Can't specifically say why, but the mouse "feels" smoother and more responsive. Not having to change batteries will be nice. Setup is a no brainer. Plug it into your computer and it pairs automatically. If you had a previous Magic Mouse, all your settings are carried over. Regarding the charging port being on the bottom of the mouse, yes, not a great design (misguided form over function). But, the mouse fits quite nicely on an Apple iPhone dock (mouse facing forward towards the cable) so at the end of the day, place it on the dock and there won't be an issue with battery level. And yes, you'd have to buy one of those too. So far, very pleased.

    Simply Impressive

    This is the true beauty of technology. You will never regret buying this. Battery lasts months before it needs charging. Scrolling, clicking etc is smooth as silk.

    Don't buy this

    I love the interface with the Magic Mouse, most of all being able to swipe sideways (no wheel or button). But honestly this thing was wonky almost right out of the box -- within one or two days, left click wouldn't work, mouse wouldn't connect with my computer. Who has time to futz around with this all morning? Not me. Please come up with a corded Magic Mouse that actually works day in, day out. Very disappointed.

    Ignore the misleading reviews, people are idiots, this thing is awesome!

    For goodness sake, do you charge your phone overnight? Then do the same this this you knuckleheads!! You can't tell me you don't sleep so let's be honest, many of you forget to charge this, then it dies and then you complain that the port should be in the front to compensate of your idiocy. Just take a break if you must allow it to charge while working, then create better habits, it's not difficult.

    I switched from the first version to this one and it was seamless! Works exactly as it always has (perfectly), have had zero issues and the best part? It charges super fast and no more batteries ever!!!!

    Buy it, and use it as its intended, charge it overnight, unlike the masses minus the M, ha ha

    Meh, just meh.

    It basically does what you expect a mouse to do with a couple of programmable features such as a traditional right click (windows) as well as some zoom/magnification abilities. Nothing really game changing here. Understanding anything from Apple is 4x the cost of what it should be, this is beyond excessively priced. It doesn't travel smoothly on a desk/mousepad and it requires far more physical movement than a traditional wireless mouse. Even when dialing up sensitivity, the pointer doesn't move far. I do enjoy the look of the mouse, but beyond that, theres nothing overly compelling that would allow me to recommend it. I feel i'm being generous in my 2-star rating. Oh, and who had the bright idea to put the charging port on the BOTTOM of the mouse? There's no good way to charge the thing other than to let it dangle awkwardly off the side of your desk. Horribly stupid design there.

    Don't bother with this mouse. In fact don't bother with Apple

    I've spent thousands with Apple over the years. But honestly, there products make to sense to me now. Don't buy this mouse. If it runs out of power the only way to charge it is via a port on the bottom, making in unusable, which means you have to stop work, or use another mouse.
    Genius!! Apple is so terrible right now. My company have already started moving to PC.
    See ya!!

    I just love the magic mouse 2. It's so beautiful, it doesen't need a scrool whee, it does need some time to charg but it last's for a month. The lightning connecter is on the bottom so it's unuseable for iMac users but it's fine for MacBook users. Hope apple puts the connecter on the side or front.

    Sleek Design

    I just bought my Magic Mouse 2 yesterday for my MacBook Pro w/ retina laptop. It works fine. It glides smoothly and very operational. I found nothing wrong with it. Moreover,I like that it is rechargeable and wireless. It will help me to preserve my laptop's trackpad from always using it. The constant usage of the trackpad and the force touch is not good. I mean it will damage in the long run so it's better that I have an option - the Magic Mouse 2.

    Stupid Design

    The mouse is unusable while charging and there is very little warning when it's about go dead. Supposedly it will get a day's charge in 2 minutes and this is flatly not true. Basically you have to have a back-up mouse and use while it's charging. Remember when apple designed things well?

    Died Completely after One Year

    Looks good, feels good, dies good. For the money spent, this may be the WORST product Apple ever produced. Oh well, my Microsoft mini-mouse uses one AA battery and runs for about a year. It's always been my travel mouse, now it will be my new "home" mouse.

    Form over function for this worthless device.

    Did no one ever tell Tim about this thing?

    Better than the last one!

    I have the original magic mouse at home and I hate dealing with the batteries! When I started my new job, they had that really old corded one which was even worse because I didn't have the gestures like the one at home! So I asked for a magic mouse. Ask and you shall receive (at my work at least). Anyway, I got it and was totally amazed that it doesn't require batteries! I didn't even know that existed! As other reviews have pointed out, yes it sometimes is inconvenient when your mouse dies because the charging port is on the bottom. But... Your computer keeps alerting you that your mouse is dying before it does. Be sure to just plug it in when you're done for the day and you'll be set. I have had it die twice at work because I forgot to charge it the night before. I just plugged it in for 5-10 mins and that gave me enough juice to make it until lunch when I was able to really charge it up. One thing I love is that it uses the same cable as the iPhone which I always already have on my desk for my phone! I so want one of these at home, but I'm just going to keep using rechargeable batteries for now. If I ever have to replace it, I'll for sure get the new one! I haven't noticed a difference besides the charging bit. If you put the new one and the old one in my hand, I wouldn't be able to tell you which was which unless I checked the bottom.
