I'm thinking of buying one but is it really worth it when you have an Air 2 and an iPhone 6 plus?
No, it isnt.
Might want to review battery life as a decision factor.
Do you think it's worth it? It would be your money spent.
I have a 6+, Air 1 and Mini 4. Each device has its benefits. The larger iPad is better for viewing movies and videos. The mini4 is better for games and Internet browsing. The 6+ is good at everything when your out of the house. The large iPads get annoying to hold for long periods of time while browsing and typing when surfing the web. The sound is way better on my air1 for movies and such.
It's worth it imo. All the devices can do the same things. Each one just does certain things a little better.
In my situation, I'm at school, work, and with friends often from 9am until 3am the following morning. I don't have access to chargers and find the iPad won't last all day. I shouldn't have to carry battery pack, so I find the iPad mini 4 often dies on me.
Lol my iPad Air 2 lasts the whole day
But the iPad mini 4 has a much smaller battery. Definitely won't last from 9am to 3am.
It's not a phone?

Have you used one? Mine typically gets about 12 hours of screen on time.
Remember, it has a smaller battery than the Air 2, but also a smaller display with less pixels to power, and just 2 processor cores sucking power instead of 3.
Agreed. I get 10-12 hours of battery life easily out of mine.
Agreed on battery life. If anything, I think I get better battery runtime on the Mini 4 than the Air 2 doing similar things, though I've never done a scientific comparison.
Maybe for you
You can't say it isn't when everybody's usage is different
Yeah, that's the trouble with these kinds of threads... everyone wants to know what they should do/buy/etc, but everybody is different - with different wants and needs. It's way too subjective. I suspect that there's a certain level of crowd-sourcing and need for affirmation associated with these kinds of questions, but he answer really is YMMV.
I have the
I have a need for all of them at different times. Mini 4 is perfect at work where I use the browser a lot on it. Sometimes it's easier to use at home but at home my use is the air 2
If I want work to do, heavy emails I use my MacBook
So if you are a heavy user and want to use a device on the go and at home you can find enough time for all of them
That is very nicely put. As for the YMMV, I'm on the profligate end of hardware purchases, and even I think that mixing the 6/6S Plus into the mix starts to feel cramped, but hey, it isn't my cash.
Buy them all.
I think you missed the point of my post. That's ok.
I just got this. LOL.
I would think though for the OP that it depends on what device you're using throughout the day more if it's your iPhone and then just have the mini to compliment that for say entertainment and some productivity when needed then the Mini 4 should be adequate enough but if the battery isn't on par get a battery pack to help pick up the slack.
He's just a troll from imore which I ignored.
Wow I'm the troll?! Look in the mirror CR.
I said you? He is. guess I'm adding you to. Because I wasn't trolling
You quoted my post said and I was a troll from iMore. I was on there for three + years contributing.
I said the person you quoted..... I didn't say "you" I said "he". Big difference in those two words buddy
