    Ergonomically bad design. Uncomfortable

    The product is gorgeous and very well made. However, it is a bad design ergonomically. It is uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time.

    Why all the bad reviews??

    This mouse is great! I got it for my Mac and it works perfectly. It looks beautiful as well. It tracks well and hasn't messed up. The only downside is the changing port being on the bottom. Other than that, it is one great piece of technology and I would recommend it to anyone with a Mac!!

    Not for professionals.

    Is this the bellwether of Apple's identity crisis? This just isn't something a professional can use. They've switched from a company that makes tools into a lifestyle company. If Bang and Olufsen are any example, this is a real heartbreak. Please do t make me switch back to PC. Please correct course.

    Some poor design choices.

    It still feels fine and works the way I've come to expect from the Magic Mouse, and if that's all you need from a mouse (as I do), then that part is great.

    The battery holds a long charge, which is nice, but today I found I needed to charge it and now parrot all the other people wondering why the charging port needed to be located on the underside, rendering it useless while charging. Maybe it's harmful to the battery to be plugged in all the time and they assumed some people would just leave it plugged in? I don't know; I'm not an engineer. But I am a user, and I'm bummed that it's now a paper weight until it's ready to go again.

    To that point, I know that I can view the charge percentage by going to system preferences, but to not have any kind of indication at all on the mouse itself whether or not it is charging or it's finished is also a strange absence. I know Apple recognizes the value of a charge indicator because it used to be on their products, and is still on their AA Battery Charger.

    Hopefully Apple's trend of crippling user experience for the sake of aesthetics will end soon.

    Worst Design by the placement of lightening port

    I don't think this is an apple design, they have done this with out even thinking for a moment.
    seriously port at the bottom of a mouse ?

    Cheaply executed, I am ashamed to say I am an apple fan.

    Not Working

    Sorry I cannot give it zero. I bought this mouse on 21/11/16 and try to use it for the first time on 11/02/17. I tried for hours to charge the lithium-ion battery in vain. From my experience the Li-Ion batteries technology is not reliable, in many cases it has a sharp cutoff and very short life. Furthermore the charging cable supplied to charge the mouse does not fit the MacBook Pro that I bought with the mouse, - different connectors. The laptop has thunderbolt 3 (USB C) connectors only and the cable provided has USB A connector.

    Need to recall and replace ASAP

    My iMac is completely useless whenever the mouse needs recharging. And the time between charges is getting shorter and shorter. This is NOT what I expect from Apple. You need to get it off the market and offer anyone who has one a free or shipping cost replacement immediately.

    A great upgrade from the original Apple Mouse.

    This mouse does the job it's designed to do and does it well. I purchased this mouse as I was getting fed up with having to keep charging the batteries in my old mouse all the time and the in-built battery in this mouse is so much better. Having the charge point on the bottom of the mouse does not give any problems or issues with this mouse. It's easy to connect to both my Mac's and is very accurate when in use.

    Who was the genius engineer who placed the charging port underneath?

    Apple dropped the ball big time with their new version of Magic Mouse. The mouse is rendered completely useless while it is charging because the charging port has the worst placement possible - right underneath. I understand the need to keep it thin and slick, but when design comes at the cost of usability it is not worth it in my opinion.

    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.

    speechless.

    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.

    Mouse

    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.
