I mostly use down-arrow _if_ the mini-index area tells me that the next message is unread. If it is not (which can happen with sorting by thread-date) but I can see the next unread message in the mini-index, I jump to it with Control-N. Only if I cannot see the next unread item in mini-index, I drop back to full index (with 'q') and pick the one I want to read next. -- Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet, if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
