    Default iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 4 Temptation

    i trying to fight off urge to get one of these ipad. Am using iphone 6 plus on os 8.3 jailbreak.

    Had ipad 3 laying at home. Everytime i lack of interest in using ipad 3. Maybe because it is old, laggy and original owner id my brother who migrate to samsung tab.

    I usually use 6 plus on couch after work. My job have very little time to use 6 plus.

    Whenever have more hours at hand. I would usually use desktop for videos,gaming and internet......

    mini 4 is newer and 321 ppi while air 2 have larger screen.

    wanted to get either of this but my 6 plus will only be use as sms , call and outside. Paying so much monthly for data plan might be waste.

    My wifi ipad will then be occupy most time at home.

    what do you suggest?

    Get the Air for the bigger screen size since you already own the 6 Plus. You won't use the Mini as much since the screen difference is quite small.

    I would wait for the iPad Air 3 though.

    Go for the larger screen of the iPad Air. As TripleOne said, you may be more inclined to use the iPad Air because the difference in screen size compared to your iPhone is significant.

    If you're on a budget, then yes.

    If you have some good cash laying around, wait for the iPad Air 3 this Marh.

    I am also very tempted on both too...

    But at this time waiting out a bit for iPad Air 3 maybe the best choice.

    Congratulations, but sad to say they are about the SAME SIZE when watching a 16:9 movie on your iPad Mini 4 and iPhone 6 Plus. i suggest you must buy a zagg keyboard on your iPad, if you do not want to bring your Laptop with you Because nowadays iPad is 90% total replacement for your computing device unlike before which is limited right?

    You should definitely get the iPad Air 2. Th iPad mini is too small nowadays and you already have a iPhone 6 Plus so the mini's small screen will be useless for you. Of course there are differences in size between the iPad mini and you iPhone but it's no gonna be all that. So I highly recommend the iPad Air 2. Still a great device.
