    Stopped working

    I bought this mouse about 9 months ago after I got my Mac Book Pro. I recently stopped responding to movements on my mouse pad. It still scrolls but I thought it would last longer.

    Won't connect!

    My original Magic Mouse that came with my iMac worked hard and long for three years. When it died, I replaced it temporarily with a Logitech wireless mouse that I had on hand so I could stay in business while I ordered another MM. When my new MM2 arrived it would not connect. Of course, I cannot disconnect the Logitech mouse because then I cannot make the menu selections required in connect the MM2!

    A total aggravation!

    not the best

    I am not as happy with the new mouse, it doesn't function properly a lot of times even though it is fully charged, it seems to get stuck and won't work, I don't like that you can't use the mouse as your charging it like the key board. I prefer the batteries at this point maybe I just got a bad one, will get a new one, if still having the same issues will go back to the old mouse.

    Ok for casual use, no good for working with.

    I use my computer primarily for work and this mouse lags, is constantly needing to be recharged and since the charger is on the bottom, I have to stop working until it does. If you are using it for personal reasons and you can afford to waste your time, then it's ok, not worth the money though.

    Great in use!...But...

    This is a great mouse, a little inaccuracy now and then, but overall a good 8/10. BUT... like, what the h***.. Charging port under the mouse? You dont have to be a Rocket Surgeon to understand that it is a terrible idea..

    4 stars for Use
    0 stars for charging port
    = 2 stars in average..

    Great mouse - when you can set it up

    Needed to do some photo editing work so went to pick up a mouse on my way to work, got there and went to set it up which you have to do by plugging in to the laptop... one problem I have a 2017 Pro - which doesn't have a USB port on it. Why do none of your cables work with your other products anymore!?

    99% of people would be better buying the Magic Mouse 1

    So I originally thought all the negative comments bashing Apple's placement of the charging point on this thing were pretty funny, and fairly nit-picky. Surprise, they weren't. In all honesty I can't find a single reason why the MM2 is better than the MM1. If anything there are several reasons it's clearly worse to live with.

    As a professional designer and someone who is on their computer all day long, I'm lucky to get 24 hours worth of use on one charge, so now I have to make sure I charge this thing just about every night, or risk running out of juice mid work day. Because you can't just swap batteries like the MM1, recharging the MM2 means about an hour of downtime. And that ever so cleverly placed charging port makes sure you can't use the mouse while it's charging. (Really missed a great opportunity to have the port on the front so the mouse could function like a standard wired mouse when charging).

    For a company that prides themselves on delivering superior design, Apple absolutely missed the mark on the Magic Mouse 2. Save yourself $40 and buy the MM1. Or trade me your MM1 for my brand new MM2!

    Slick looking design with insane flaws

    First, in your favorite search engine, search for "bottom of a mouse". Observe where every single bottom-tracking mouse ever made has put the tracking mechanism. It's smack in the middle of the mouse. Apple put it at the top of the mouse, meaning every single minute gesture you've ever gotten used to is thrown out the window, because reasons. It makes it feel incredibly inaccurate until you've gotten used to it, and I'm still not sure why Apple wants to change how I hold my mouse.

    The hybrid trackpad top of the mouse is great when it does what you want it to - scrolling is a particularly nice feature to have. But then it activates when you're trying to click, and it moves the screen on you before you click. Gestures, like navigating forward/backward on webpages, also gets misinterpreted as a scroll action. Most mouse manufacturer's provide utilities to adjust this sort of thing, but Apple does not. So I have to toss in a different mouse if I need to perform anything that requires accuracy.

    It definitely gets points for longevity, the charging port on the bottom is the most overblown thing about this mouse. It lasts for weeks without a charge. Generally it feels pretty good in the hand, a good amount of weight and it feels like a premium product.

    Not my First Choice

    It works but thats just about it. I like how its rechargeable but you cant use the mouse when its charging due to the port being on the bottom. Good thing it doesnt take too long to charge but this is my biggest gripe. I recommend plenty of other great mice options.

    Apple is Trying Too Hard

    I never thought that I would say a tech company is trying too hard because forward thinking technology companies typically produces cool products. But Apple it seems is putting forward thinking tech ahead of good common sense. The thing about humans is a lot of us are very impatient. Those of us who are, don't want to be forced to stop working to recharge a mouse, not even for two minutes. Also, the 'battery charge is low indicator' advances to 'battery is empty' WAY faster than the original Magic Mouse. Since Apple decided a very small flat mouse was a good idea they were left with no where to put the USB port besides the bottom. If the port were on either side the cord would get in the way of your fingers when it is plugged in.

    Irritatingly sensitive

    The sensitivity for scrolling is WAY too high, its hard to click on things. Since pressing my finger down on the surface causes my finger to take up a teeny bit more space on the mouse, it thinks I moved my finger and scrolls away from the thing I'm trying to click on.

    Every mouse I've had in the past had settings to adjust the scrolling sensitivity, but Apple "did a ton of testing, trust us its perfect." Yeah, nah. Give us the option to adjust the sensitivity please!

    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.

    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.

    Pros
    -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.

    Cons
    -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.

    Form finally destroys function

    Not being able to use this while recharging is actually incredibly disruptive to work because I or anyone i know tracks the battery level of their mice. Suddenly you have to stop and put the mouse upside down in the middle of active working, a call, or a presentation. This alone made me go back to a different mouse.

    This is a text book example of why form should follow function, not the other way around.

    A few problems with Magic Mouse 2

    New design has caused a callus on the inside of my pinky. Have not yet figured how to "right click". Can't use while recharging.

    Magic mouse doesn't click because it thinks you're scrolling

    The sloped front of the mouse causes your finger to slide down when you try to click. The sliding finger registers as scrolling, which causes the click not to function properly. The scroll is so sensitive, that I haven't been able to click perfectly without scrolling even though I've been using this mouse for months. I could turn off scrolling, but then what would be the point of this mouse?

    Ugh...worst mouse ever!

    I hate using this thing, it is too flat. If I use it for any length of time my hand will cramp. Aesthetically, it's great; functionality, not so good.

    Epic Failure

    The charging port is on the bottom, which renders it useless when it expires halfway through a document, what highly paid genius decided the bottom would be a great place for a charging port?
    Sorry Apple, epic failure..........

    deeply flawed

    obligatory rant about a catastrophic design flaw. 1st world problems. the reason people are losing their minds about the charging port being on the bottom of the mouse and therefore rendering it useless while it is plugged in, is because we have come to expect a certain level of quality from apple. this is why we buy apple products. it's a brand loyalty that has been earned. here, with Magic Mouse 2, form trumps function. they were so concerned with creating the sleek mouse profile, that they neglected to include features that reflect how people actually use the product. no one remembers to plug in their mouse until it dies while they are using it. and when the low battery warning pops up while you are in the middle of something, you can't stop to plug in a mouse that can't be used while charging. it's a huge oversight for a company that prides itself on well-designed, user friendly products. aside from that it's great. can't wait for number three.

    Good... not $80 good

    Got this thing with my mid-2015 iMac purchase. Its really not a bad mouse at all. I like it much better than the more expensive track pad that you can get (don't get me wrong, I'm a millennial in the professional world... I love apple's track pads). Works as well as any $15 mouse you can get on amazon only it supports basic multitouch gesturing (nothing to write home to mom about). My two biggest gripes are (1) the ridiculous cost and (2) the fact that a single rogue cat hair will stop it from functioning at anytime until you blow on the sensor. I would never pay this crazy price if it wasn't bundled into the price of my iMac.
