    RSI waiting to happen

    The ergonomics of this monstrosity are terrible.

    Example of poor design

    The mouse has great functionality - the touch sensitive top is a great idea and makes navigating macOS a breeze. However, I there are a couple of reasons that I think it falls well short of expectations.

    The charger being on the bottom is sheer idiocy. I won't belabour that point, as it is obviously silly. Secondly, the profile of the mouse is designed with clean aesthetics in mind, meaning it can be uncomfortable over long periods of use. A more contoured mouse would undoubtedly be more comfortable and fit the hand better.

    Charged from the bottom

    CRAZY DESIGN. I can't understand how a company like Apple who must go through numerous stages of design including prototyping and user trials end up making a rechargeable mouse that has the charging point underneath rather than at the front. It has to be left on its side whilst charging and clearly can't be used whilst on charge. MAD

    Sleek, sexy, unreliable

    The only thing 'magic' about this mouse is the fact that Apple can convince us to spent £79 on a piece of plastic which can't do what a £5 alternative can do. I have had three of these and all have stopped working after a few months. Not worthy of the Apple brand and certainly not worth of your £79.

    Let down by the most irrational charging cable position

    The core features for the mouse aren't the issue. They work as to be expected but, it seems that Apple want to kill productivity.

    Completely baffled as to why you'd place the charging cable at the bottom, rendering it useless during charge? Utter madness.

    Whoever designed this mouse? I got no warning the battery was low. Came into my office on a Saturday to work (on my iMac) and the mouse battery is dead. Can’t work as the charging connector for the mouse is in the most stupid place you can imagine and the mouse doesn’t work when connected via the charging cable - and even if the mouse could work with a cable attached, the fact the connector is underneath the mouse makes the device unusable. Bonkers. Thanks for ruining my Saturday Apple

    Ups and downs!

    Now, for a product of this cost you would expect something pretty much spot on that ticks many boxes, if not all of them. Unfortunately? No.

    The things I like about this mouse - gestures such as swiping between web pages in safari, generally navigating websites is rather effortless and very smooth indeed. I also like the weight of the product and its overall build quality. It feels substantial but not cumbersome. Lastly, the design. It does 'look' great.

    Now for the longer list of problems. I am a pro user, I spend long periods of time working on programs like Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator etc, jumping between apps and dragging/dropping files. I use every pixel of my 27inch screen! After about 30 minutes of use my wrist and hand starts to ache due to the way you have to almost suspend your hand over the mouse to control it, you can't rest your palm on the mouse because it's just too flat. This is not ergonomic at all.

    The other issue is the CLICKING NOISE it makes! after a while this becomes annoying - there are much cheaper competitors out there now offering 'silent' mice and Quiet Mark approved products.

    Next, the fact that this can't be charged during use. the charging point is underneath the mouse by the optics so it has to be rested on its side to charge!

    Finally, the way it moves - it almost scratches along my desk when I'm moving it, it's also noisy on a mousemat!
    Sorry apple.

    Looks good but can’t use it (yet)!

    My new mouse looks very nice (and so ir should for that price) but lacks one ESSENTIAL feature... so at present it’s as useful as a chocolate teapot!

    In order to pair it with my new MacBook Pro, it apparently needs to be connected using a cable BUT
    They supply one for the old style USB, not USB-C which is all I have on the MacBook. They really need to coordinate their products.
    I have some of those cables for my iPhone and iPad so could of course find other ways to charge the mouse.

    WHY on earth do they not supply a simple adapter which shouldn’t cost more that £1 and would be invaluable for other purposes?
    Or even the correct cable? Answer I guess is they sell a fancy cable for that at a RIDICULOUS £19!

    Very Poor

    Warranty replaced the first mouse, very pleased with the service but the new one failed with exact same battery charging problem 6 weeks later. Reverted back to my replaceable battery one and all is good. Fundamental flaw in design and functionality Apple!

    Magic Mouse 2

    Don't understand other poor reviews. I have been using my MM2 for a few days now and it is fantastic. Ok have to charge it so cant use it while charging, so what, battery life is amazing and been able to see remaining power in Mouse Settings means I will never run out of power. Like everything in this world you get what you pay for and the MM2 is just amazing, great swipe/touch features and ergonomically a delight to use. Having tried cheaper alternatives the MM2 is so far ahead of everything else.

    Absolutely horrendous

    The original 1 which came with my iMac pro developed a fault in July 2017 and replacement they sent has developed same fault. I’m going to Apple repair centre today around 12 o clock to have it replaced or repaired. When you pay such massive amount of money to a company like Apple, the product should be of satisfactory built and not break down every 4 months.

    Magic Mouse 2 was falsely advertised

    Man, I bought this mouse for my gaming PC as it was "magic". But NO! It's a complete waste of time and money. It's nothing compared to my dell mouse I got with my pre-built dell desktop for £180. This mouse only runs at 10fps on Minecraft.

    Designer of the Magic Mouse (FAIL)

    It may have been magic had you put the socket at the top like a normal mouse so that it could continue to be used whist being charged!
    Please whoever designed this do everyone a favour and go put your head in an Oven and spare us from anymore idiocy from you.
    Or is it Apple's feeble way of getting consumers to buy two? one to use and one to charge.
    Its an embarrassment, as a company they should be ashamed to sell it.
    In the future it will be recognised as one of the most laughable products ever made.

    Well done Apple for making a Massive Lemon.

    Stupid design

    I COMPLETELY endorse the review by Andrew C from London. Apple's designers must have been asleep when they came up with this design - absurd having the charging port in the bottom of the mouse! Ouch! I returned mine. Will wait for Mouse 3!

    Prove to me your are good... I need to get the trust back

    I just hope that this Magic Mouse 2 last longer than my previous one....
    After only 18 months my first MM2 stopped working....
    After 2 long calls to Apple support I was .... told buy a new one !!!

    To say I am disappointed ..... well I am
    Now I have an old dinosaur one attached to my computer at my work place and it is still going after 5 years !

    Having said that the new one so far is working fine... I've only had it a week... I just don't quite have that trust back....

    Lovely feel, but may not be good for serious power users

    I love the mouse.
    Feels great. Being able to perform gestures like "swipe" and "scroll" are entertaining.

    However, since you cant escape having your hand on the mouse to move it, it is easy to for the mouse to think you are making a gesture when you are not.
    This might annoy some users.

    The charge lasts for ever. admittedly, i use my iMac for short periods, but the charge lasts for months!!! That really is a big plus.

    They need to upgrade the USB cable to a thunderbolt

    The mouse is good and the battery life once you have fully charged it is good. The only issue is you have to find a wall adapter if you have a new style mac as there is only a usb cable in the box. This really is annoying as its an extra thing to carry, or i will have to begrudgingly purchase a thunderbolt to usb adapter.

    Works like it should

    I know there are many reviews out there of people getting really upset that the mouse has to be flipped and charged. If you can't remember to charge it once a month, then a power up whilst you boil the kettle will get your through to the end of the day. No one is THAT dedicated that you can't give it 10 mins.

    I have a Magic Mouse 1 as well, as the 2 holds its power better. Less battery replacing. Other than that I see very little difference. Great bit of kit.

    Form over function

    Well, this mouse looks fantastic, but I find it really slows me down whilst working. Ergonomically I find it comfortable, but unresponsive and not really suited to the human hand. There's also the problem of the charging port being placed under the mouse rendering it unusable when charging. I've been using it for 4 months and thought I'd be used to it by now, but alas.

    Abomination of industrial design

    This mouse is pathetic. It's an abomination. The charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Run out of power while you're using your shiny £80 Magic Mouse 2? TOUGH. You'll need another mouse, as you can't charge this one while you use it. This is an absolute disgrace. An appalling example of industrial design.

    Stay away. Do not buy.
