    Good Try - Try Harder

    I hope someone from R&D will read this, apparently.

    Mouse looks super cool, but is not workable.
    Using more than for 1,5-2 hours gives you pain.
    Charging function is interesting, with a hint for gay community.

    I use only apple devices, all of them, but this mouse is a failure.
    Please develop an ergonomic vertical mouse, smth like Anker - price it at 150 EUR and everyone will buy it anyway.

    Charging Feature is a bit of a let down

    Whilst I love the design of the mouse, it's functionality and features.
    The charging is a bit frustrating.

    It would be better to have a charging port perhaps on the front of the mouse so you can still use it when charging.
    I've had to buy another Logitech mouse to use when I need to charge my Magic Mouse.

    Other than that the mouse it great.
    I will say the charge does last a long time so that's a plus.

    Don't be Put Off by the Three Star Rating.

    I use Bluetooth mice and keyboards a lot. But I always keep wired counter parts around just in case the blue tooth devices can't be detected. And the batteries are forever running low. I have this mouse and the Apple Bluetooth keyboard (without the numeric keypad and rechargeable batteries) for an iMac. At first the mouse felt a little strange. and somewhat uncontrollable I didn't like the placement of the charging port. The keyboard felt a little small. And for a couple of years I didn't use them. Finally I charged them up and I am pleasantly surprised. Once you charge them they hold the charge a long time. I have my machines automatically shut down every night and startup in the morning. I actually remember to turn off both Bluetooth devices. There is never a problem at startup detecting devices. They are pricey and they are not the MOST ergonomic of devices but they do work well. Well enough that I have just purchased a second set. In both cases they replace an Apple replaceable battery wireless keyboard and a Logitech mouse. The second set is for a Mac-mini connected to the TV.

    Dude No Right/Left Click

    This mouse is nice, I like the black option but it doesn't have the normal functions like right and left click what is it good for?!?! I expect better. I don't mind the charging location, but it really would have been easy to put it in the back top side behind the apple.

    Grade - just a C

    It's a little below average. It works most of the time but that means about 80%. And when it's about to go dead because the battery is drained you find out too late. It looks cool but it's not as good as a $15 mouse by the generic makers of such.

    Incomplete Product

    I have a new MacBook Pro. This mouse requires a cable to pair with the computer. Unfortunately it comes with a USB2Lightning cable and my MacBook Pro DOESN'T HAVE a USB2 port. I was unable to use this mouse until I found an adapter. On the plus side, it is very easy to pair after the adapter was found and feels like a MacIntosh mouse. Would love to see a ThunderboltLightning cable included.

    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.

    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.

    Make sure you have a wired mouse to go with it

    My IMAC came with this "magic" mouse. It is definitely a little tricky finding the right and left let along center scroll when I am using it. There have been a few times when my mouse just froze on me. Fortunately I have a wired mouse when enables me to connect to the computer to get the mouse just to move.

    Make sure however to guard the the charging cable that comes with it because it is needed for the magic keyboard as well. If you lose it then you won't be able to charge your IMAC.

    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.

    Nice design but....

    Love the mouse EXCEPT it doesn't indicate when it's running low and needs to be recharged. The warning would be terrific so I could plug it in overnight. Woke up this morning and it was essentially dead. Also needs some sort of indicator when it's fully charged. Other than that, it's a vast improvement over the old one. Perhaps Apple wants us to buy two so one can be charging while the other is in use? NOT the best solution really. NOT at the price.

    good but not great

    it was exciting to see you can recharge it,but it must have been a little much to want to use it while it was recharging ,they place the plugin port on the bottom of the mouse instead of on the side or somewhere cool like the front. they figured it would mean people would just buy an extra mouse in case it hadn't charged ,or watch a movie while it charges ,unknown, this is sort of like how they made the ear buds that can be easily lost, an ok idea from a business perspective ,cause people now need to buy more to hear their music, but a plug in would be preferable. fixing one problem just to then create a new problem is not good progress, hopefully they think of the design next time by asking a group of people who aren't just agreeing with the boss.

    Poor weighting and shape makes it hard to use

    Most of the time I use a Windows PC for work so I have generally use two mice the most: one Logitech wireless mouse that's a bit small but quite ergonomically shaped and a Microsoft mouse that's as cheap as they come for twenty bucks. Lately I've used the Magic Mouse quite a lot with an iMac and it offers no precision at all. It's rather heavy and is it a bit too flat to feel comfortable underneath my palm. It's weight contributes to its lack of precision as it can't be moved around smoothly like other mice can. I quite like the trackpad on my Macbook Pro, but don't feel like I need it if I have a regular mouse available...and so the top surface of the Magic Mouse 2 isn't that useful at all. I love Apple, but this mouse isn't practical and it's expensive. Honestly, I'd rather just have the iMac trackpad, or whatever it is called, or a regular Microsoft or Logitech mouse with no Apple bells and whistles.

    Your grip style is critical to your satisfaction!

    I'm told there's three kinds of grip for a mouse: Claw, palm, and something else I've forgotten and can't be bothered to look up.

    What I've found AFTER using the mouse for a week is that I use a claw grip, pinching in from the sides to move the mouse. It is at this point that I realize that the (not sharp, but) abrupt corners on the sides can be noticeable. Maybe not off-putting, but 3 weeks in I still notice it.

    If you're used to a high palm swell on the mouse you will miss it. My cheapo old Logitech M100 mouse does not have a big swell, but Apple flat takes some getting used to.

    Flat is necessary for the multitouch surface on the top of the mouse, which turns out to be more useful as I take the time to configure it to how I work.

    I haven't had connectivity issues. 1 charge lasts me... I don't know, 3 weeks later I'm sitting at 76%, and I'm a full time student.

    Worth it, but try one in a store, if you can.

    Give a Mouse a Tail

    Why or earth would you put the charging connector on the bottom??? The magic keyboard has a thunderbolt socket on it. If you plug the lead it, it not only charges, but also acts like a wired USB keyboard, allowing you to press startup key combinations without waiting for Bluetooth to start. genius. Why not follow that lead and give the mouse a tail? Have the charging socket on the top end and allow you to operate the mouse as a wired mouse when plugged in. This is not rocket science, just good design, something Apple tends to be very good at. How did you guys miss this one?

    Other than that, the mouse is pretty good.

    Good functionality, terrible ergonomics

    Good functionality for OSX users but after even 30 minutes of continued use, the mouse is very uncomfortable in the hand. yes it looks great, but that was clearly the only thing that was important when designing this mouse.

    Good mouse in theory

    The shape of the mouse fits your natural hand position and the scroll is very nice. But it disconnects CONSTANTLY which makes it near unusable.

    Also here for the charging port. MM2 needs more magic spells.

    I was going to buy this mouse for my MacBook Pro since its trackpad isn't enough for how much I navigate on several programs/apps at once. I must say when I saw this in the store, I was very tempted to buy this along with the MacBook due to it's sleek style. I'm not a gamer so I love its minimalistic look. I'm also not one who goes in-depth on mouse functions (precision, speed, smoothness, finger/hand comfort, etc.). That being said, I did enjoy trying out the product but needed more details before purchasing.

    The charging situation is definitely concerning. It's not so much that I can't wait for an hour or two every two months to recharge. I'm sure everyone in here who's complaining have something else to do for an hour or two every two months while recharging the mouse. What concerns me is that like some have mentioned here, is that there is no light that indicates if the mouse needs to be recharged (correct me if I'm wrong). Therefore it could become suddenly useless during workflow. As someone who often works out of office and does a lot of web conference, I'd hate to suddenly get interrupted by this and lose momentum (especially if you're the one presenting to the group). Having to recharge the mouse every night before to avoid this sort of situation could become an inconvenience. I could do this for my phone but not for a device that's supposed to make my computer-use more seamless.

    Sitting this one out. Hoping the newer version's charging port isn't in the way so that it can be plugged and remain usable during such situations.

    Poor Usability - Disappointed

    Bought an iMac when my beloved 2011 17" MBP finally gave up the ghost (yes, it was an early-2011 model with the faulty logic board; had it replaced twice but the programme ran out). Was hoping to get a decent mouse along with some semblance of a track pad. Magic Mouse 2 is a decent mouse to point and click, but already the implementation of the right mouse button is dodgy at best. Worse, the lack of ergonomic features makes the thing hard to point at times. Worst of all, though, is the lack of any middle mouse button, and the implementation of the scroll wheel. Since the entire surface is sensitive to swiping/tapping, the mouse frequently mistakes simple finger movements for swiping or tapping movements, resulting in unwanted scrolling and zooming. It may work if you are using the mouse with 1 finger only, but as soon as you permanently have 2 fingers on the mouse (e.g., when using left and right mouse button functionality), chaos ensues. Popped my Logitech G9 (ancient, but trusty and working) back in and am happier, but minus the track pad functionality.
    My advice: if you need a trackpad, get one instead of the mouse, and for things you need a mouse for (and I mean not only gaming), use a real mouse.

    Not a hater (really) but I agree with them on this one...

    Perfect, except for one huge flaw: the charging on the bottom. Makes it worthless while charging. And yes, I realize that it is not a life-or-death issue, and yes, it doesn't kill me to step away from the computer every now and then. But my iMac is a family computer, and it seems like whenever I need it, the kids have run down the mouse without charging it. I don't see why they couldn't put it in the front (or the side) like a old wired mouse.... That said, it is otherwise flawless. Love not needing to change batteries.

    Looking forward to Magic Mouse 3!
