    That's like asking if I had to choose, would I buy a car or a boat? Apples and oranges.

    Do you already have a phone?
    Do you have already have a computer?
    Do you want a mobile computer?
    Do you want a mobile computer that needs to fit in your pocket?

    If I had neither a phone, nor a computer then I would choose an iPhone.

    Wait until today and check out the iPad mini. Maybe that's your best bet.

    However, if you don't have a phone and need one, then the choice is easy - go for the phone.

    I need a phone and have the iPhone 5. That was my first venture to Apple products. From there I got the MacBook Pro and then the iPad. I absolutely love my iPad and use it pretty much exclusively for leisure type web surfing, paying bills, etc. I could do without the laptop if I had to give one up. But if I could only have either the iPhone or the iPad, then I would have to say the iPhone cause it can do anything an iPad can do and also can make phone calls. It's really the most versatile.

    I own both but if I didn't own either I would say first and for most one needs a phone.

    well it can't do everything the iPad can do but app wise they are similar but there are a bunch of apps enhanced for the iPad only.

    Since I had a feature phone for a very long time (until the iPhone 5) used with an iPad, I'd have to say iPad.

    exactly. Two totally different basic functions.

    No. A boat is not a big version if a car. Therefore not comparable.
    I am so tired of this apple and oranges thing. There are other things close in shape, that can be compared besides the two most obvious things on the planet.

    ----------

    The basic function being of both...that they have the same touch screen and most of the same apps.
    Yeah, nothing basically the same at all there.
