I have the new Mini 6 and the Mini 5. Using Goodreader for pdfs and Marvin for epub. I find that the jelly issue is the same on both the 6 and the 5. It doesn't really bother me, by the time I get to that part of the screen it has settled down, but I realize it could be a real problem for some.

Web surfing though is going to be an issue, and any other app that uses scrolling.

I definitely agree that the iPad mini 5 is terrific for ebook reading. I love mine. And to be truthful, I find holding my iPad Air 2020 more difficult due to the tiny bezels. I keep activating stuff on the screen because there is no place to rest my thumb. I don’t have to worry about that on my iPad mini 5 though. I understand the allure of small bezels since they give you a bigger screen in the same over all size package as you get with larger bezels. But they make reading for me a bit harder. I would love to see an iPad mini with the larger bezel at the bottom keeping the button, and smaller bezels on the other three sides. For reading, I prefer a design like my Oasis 3 with a lot of bezel for my thumb on one side. Of course Apple will never build an iPad mini like that.
Fair enough. Agree with all of that--except the bit about Ipad Air, which I have no experience with.

Isn't it funny how the ergonomic details of an older device can sometimes make it more effective--for certain purposes such as book reading--than a newer device that has the latest tech?
