    I recently came across some extra money, about $350.00 worth and I've been debating whether to get a off contract Iphone 4 or an Ipad Mini. So I ask you if money wasn't an issue which one would you get? Which is the better bang for your buck?

    They both serve different purposes...if you need a phone get the iphone...otherwise get the iPad mini

    Iphone 4 has an A4 chip like ipod touch 4 so new games would stutter a bit (or a lot). 350$ for a phone, you can get better spec than that if not apple brand.

    Mobile phones these days, Android and IOS are not so far apart but for Tablet, IOS is way ahead with apps and stability. Choose an Ipad mini better, it lasts longer and better resale value if you happen to need quick cash.

    I know you can easily get an iP4 unlocked for $350. I just didn't know an iPad Mini was also available at that price.
    If so, I'd jump on the mini!

    The 4 is still a great phone so if you need a phone and want iOS the bits the way to go. The mini is great and IMO the best all around tablet to date. Each one serves similar but different purposes and without more information I don't think anyone is going up be able to give you a clear suggestion between the two.

    :eek:h::

    Sorry, I thought they were more than that.
    An iPad Mini is right around what an iTouch cost?

    $30 more, but with half the storage.
