    Would you keep an iPad 5th gen (32 gb) just over a year old, you know the history, well cared for, etc., OR would you trade it for a 4th gen mini (16 gb LTE) in good - VGUC?

    16GB is way too small in 2019. If I choose, I would keep ipad 5th gen instead of bothering trading. At least 32 GB has a bit of wiggle room (storage capacity) to play with.

    I’d take the 5th Gen. Higher storage, A9 instead of A8, which was quite a jump if I remember rightly. If this is for your grandson on the spectrum, would a MiFi hotspot bridge the gap until a suitable LTE iPad comes along?

    Sell the 5th gen iPad and get the 5th gen iPad mini with LTE instead!

    No, it isn’t. I was able to get him a 6th gen LTE. But it would be for a toddler grandson, who would only be watching it on long car rides. The only issue at all with the 5th gen is the overall size.

    If the main purpose is to load up something for your grandson to watch, 32GB definitely has an edge here being able to load more content to watch. LTE is pretty meaningless in this scenario, given child’s tendency to over-blow data plan.
