Our house was recently burglarized and among the things taken was an iPad Pro 10.5 512GB with cellular capability. I don't have the cash laying around to replace it so I bought the iPad mini 4 to make do until I can save up my pennies for the iPad Pro again. I was surprised at how little I found missing versus the iPad Pro. Although the screen is smaller, it is just as brilliantly sharp and readable as on the Pro. I think I prefer the smaller size of mini. The camera is only so-so versus the great camera of the Pro. However the ergonomics for using the camera on any iPad stinks and the shutter speed is too slow to always avoid camera shake in either iPad. One thing I miss is the great sound quality of the stereo speakers in the pro versus the so-so monophonic speaker in mini. But this doesn't matter when I connect the mini to my stereo system via the headphone jack or use a Bluetooth speaker bar. I bought the Apple pencil with the Pro but ended up never using it. (The Apple pencil only works on the Pro.) If the mini has a slower CPU than the pro, it isn't evident to me. Of course the mini has less memory and I'm not able to load it up with all the photos, music and podcasts as I had on the Pro. I strongly urge getting the mini with 128GB instead of 32GB for this reason. Comparing the iPad mini to the iPad Pro is sort of like comparing budget airline seats to first class airfare. Everyone gets to their destination regardless of how much they paid.
