Ipad mini 4 vs iPad 2018 for reading comics? And some more questions..
I was all set to buy an iPad 2018 128gb wifi today when someone gave me an iPad mini 4 16gb (!) LTE together with a 3.5gb monthly plan. This kinda put my iPad 2018 plans on hold because hey, it’s free! Even the plan is free, because apparently the mini was bought together with a phone plan, and so the data plan is bundled with it.
It was given by a family member who doesn’t use it, it’s been gathering dust in her office for 3 months now which was why it was given to me instead.
Anyway, I intend to use the iPad mostly for reading comics and ebooks, probably some Netflix, and browsing. Maybe a game or two? I wanted to get the 128gb so I can cram all the comics I can in it. Maybe some music and offline movies.
Now, since I have a 16gb ipad mini now, I was wondering if I should still get a 9.7″ iPad? The mini has a nicer screen for sure, but at 16gb, I expect to delete and transfer files a whole lot. But Since it has LTE, I can stream music and movies when I’m out of wifi range so no need to store anything. Should I get a leef ibridge?
As for reading comics, the larger screen is preferable of course, or does the mini’s nicer laminated display make up for that? Not to mention it is more portable.
If I do get a 9.7″, I’d probably get an LTE version so i can still use the ‘free’ data plan.
Given how ill use it, will the 16gb mini suffice?
BTW, this will be my first iPad. My kids have one (a mini 2), but I never really used it.
