    For those of you who have used both: Is the display on the iPad mini 4 significantly better in direct sunlight then that of the mini 2? Currently have a mini 2, but it's almost impossible to view what the screen is displaying when I use it to fly during the day and wondering if it'd be worthwhile upgrading to the 4.

    I have and used Mini 2, Mini 4 and Air 2. All have the same mirror look outside but I found the Air 2 is the best since the display is a LOT bigger and can see better/more detail even in sun light.

    I have the mini 4, that works quite well in bright sun and is only hard to see when the sun is directly striking the display. I have put on a matte screen protector as well.

    I've used both and the mini 4 is noticeably better outdoors.
