    Worst ever design. Even 1 star is too much.

    I am just another user in the long line of reviewers here to ask who on earth came up with the idea of placing the charging port on the bottom of the mouse to make it useless while charging. Another gadget that needs constant care (can i use it now or do i have to charge it?) And it wont charge when you switched off your computer either. so i need my iphone plug to charge it.


    Of course, there might be a reason to it and i have been trying to figure it out. If someone here comes up with a good explanation, please share with us.

    Just perfect

    it is completely innovative and nothing can beat it! And as for the charging.. with one minute of charging it lasts one hour! So go to the toilet let your mouse charge for 5 minutes ( means 5 hours of use) and stop complain about it!

    Terrible Design!

    What were they thinking?
    The mouse is unusable while charging! You would think that since it uses a USB cord to charge it could still be used as a wired mouse at the least. Instead you need to turn it upside down and let it charge. Like a mouse caught in a trap.

    Suggestion for a new feature for Magic Mouse

    Why don't you make a left or right click surface work as a tap/double-tap (like on trackpad) instead of actually pressing to click - and then you drag it as a mouse. Cause now it takes too muck of a finger power to press for a click.

    The reinvention of the mouse.

    First of all, there's nothing out there like this mouse. There is no such thing as an USB rechargeable mouse, that has touch, tap, multi-tap and multi-touch capabilities. It is light, it looks absolutely beautiful as a design.

    At first I was a bit disappointed that it has few gestures, however I found "MagicPrefs", a tool that lets you customize and has even more features available. Like "tapping on the apple logo", or "three finger swipe" or "three finger click" (which is ctrl + click for me)

    It's amazing how much you can do by configuring it.

    It takes a while to adjust, because the way you hold it when using it, is not like a traditional mouse that has your palm rest on top of it. You have to hold it differently to feel natural and comfortable for your hand. You will understand once you use it for 4-6 hours.

    Regarding the "charging on bottom" and "inability to use while charging". I see no other place where it could have been put and not break the design. People ranting about "form over function" are wrong, because 5min charge lasts you 9 hours of usage. I had a lot of problems before with wireless mice and not having batteries in my house.

    Terrible design - ergonomics and charging

    I decided to try using the wireless mouse at work (i've been using the wireless trackpad), and can't even get through ONE DAY with it. Below are my thoughts:

    1. Ergonomically terrible. My hand is literally sore from using it for less than a full work day on and off. It's a very slim/flat design -- looks gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but with its different swipe abilities, it starts to make your hand muscles sore. Your hand can never rest on it, so your fingers are always curled, your palm crunched... bad.

    2. I had to set the pointer speed up to MAX in order to get to what I would consider an average speed. For people who prefer a very sensitive (fast moving) mouse pointer, this would be terrible.

    Unbelievably poor design

    Mouse is unusable while charging. Always dies in the middle of work flow.

    Great mouse except for one serious design flaw, it can't be used while charging. Apple needs to address this issue!

    Great mouse, poor recharging design

    I love everything about this mouse EXCEPT how it's charged. You have to plug the lightening cord INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE MOUSE and it's rendered UNUSABLE UNTIL CHARGED. What genius designed it and how did it ever make it into production? And why in the name of all that is good are they still producing and selling it? It's mind-boggling. The end.

    Best bluetooth mouse on the market

    I can't imagine using my macbook pro without this mouse. It saves me so much time and it is much better than the trackpad. There's only one other bluetooth mouse on the market that can compete with this one, which is the Logitech MX Master. I tried that one out and the bluetooth connectivity is way worse and it also has no touch features. This is hands down the best accessory! Happy I bought it.

    What is all the fuss about?

    Being an Apple convert since the days of the very 1st iPhone, when my Magic Mouse 1 stopped working (after 8 years) I just went and bought another............ and then I read the reviews of the Magic Mouse 2. "Worst design ever" "Badly designed""Hurts my hand""Cant use whilst charging""The designer should be sacked" etc etc. I thought about cancelling. I didn't and it arrived.

    Clearly some people have nothing to do except moan. The shape is exactly the same as MM1. Yes it is different to a PC mouse but that is why you bought Apple.

    Yes it takes a little bit of time to get used to the great functionality but its worth the effort.

    No, it cannot be used whilst charging. Mine was 96% charged when I took it out of the box and, IT WILL RECHARGE IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME THAT IT WOULD TAKE TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES ON A CONVENTIONAL MOUSE. If you want one that has a lead attached to it whilst you use it, don't go for a bluetooth one. This will recharge in the time it takes to make a cup of tea or a visit to the bathroom which I assume we all do!.

    Yes it is overpriced/expensive but that is the price to pay for a superb piece of kit. If you want cheaper, buy a PC.

    It is a great piece of kit even if a little expensive. Don't hesitate to buy.

    Worst designed apple product ever

    You cannot use the mouse while charging - it has to precariously balance upside down - utterly ridiculous!!!

    ...and that's without even having managed to use it yet (o have yet to experience the scrolling problems) - I can't charge it on my new MacBook Pro as it only comes with a USB1 cable - bloody brilliant that the morons in the shop sell you incompatible products!

    So I decided to use it with my old iMac, but I can't pair it as I can't get the most recent iOS on my old iMac and its not compatible with old versions.

    Terrible design, dreadful shop staff

    Magic Mouse 2

    Even though I've never owned the first Magic Mouse I was hesitant on buying one but I love it so far it's an amazing Mouse paired very easy with my MacBook Pro and I didn't want to buy it for 2 reasons the price and the way the charging port was on the bottom and an extra 10$ from the last one just because it's 100% rechargeable yeah no thanks but I made my self buy it. Great Mouse. Just next time make it so we can use the Mouse and charge at the same time.

    Hate to admit it, but I hate the mouse

    It's the horizontal scrolling, it drives me nuts. Tried several ways to disable it, but all options don't work. I thought I just had to get used to the mouse, but after 5+ weeks I'm pretty sure it's just a very bad product...

    It's the worst in Excel and Google Agenda, you simply can't do 2-3 clicks without the mouse going crazy.

    Gonna call Apple, hopefully I get my money back

    The antonym of Remarkable

    Maybe they made a mistake writing the description. Its truly the antonym of remarkable. First of all I had the manually changed the maximum speed the iOS allowed, because even in the maximum speed offered in Preferences, it was enough, it was very slow.

    Beside that, is not precise at all. I use a genius bluetooth mouse and it works just fine. This one instead is pero imprecise.

    The scrolling also is very bad, it really doesn't work properly.

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. You will regret it for sure.

    Stupid Design

    Can't use it when it's charging. Worst. Design. Ever. Whoever made that decision should be fired.

    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:

    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.

    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.
