    I'd give back my iPad. My iPhone is my only phone.

    16GB iPad mini - $299
    64GB iPhone 5s - $849

    That math is easy to figure out.

    If you're asking which one I'd choose based on usage, I'd say the same thing.

    I use iOS and Android phones but I much prefer iOS on a tablet so I would give up my iPhone.

    I need a phone to keep my company going.

    The choice would be easy as the iPhone does what the iPad does plus it is a phone!

    No much of an option here.

    now that i think of it, why aren't iPhones priced lower than they are. an iPad has to be more expensive to build right? just because of contracts?

    Can't I give back my nexus 7, galaxy tab and galaxy s4 instead?

    Ok if I had to it would be my iPad because I need my iPhone to communicate with people.

    Some of the price difference comes from the GSM/CDMA radio. Another part is due to the fact that the iPhone has to use smaller, more expensive components. Mainly it's just because Apple wants to make more money on the iPhone.

    If I had to choose I'd give my iPad back. It's a consumption device for me. My iPhone is more important to me.

    Overall the iPad is more expensive to manufacture. Supply and mostly demand is the reason for the price difference.

    This is a tough question, i own tons of apple products and love them all equally. I think I would give up my iPhone because i cant imagine going back to using my slow computer instead of my ipad. I however just got my iphone so it is tough to answer. But then again, i only really use my iphone for calling and texting because my ipad is for web browsing and iPod nano is for music and my iPod touch is for gaming so...losing my iphone for a basic phone may be possible. GOOD THING THIS ISNT REAL BECAUSE I WOULDNT WANT TO GIVE UP ANY APPLE PRODUCTS.

    The iPhone goes with me everywhere and I use it at all times of the day for various things. The iPad I can easily do without and just use my MBP instead if I have to.

    Plus:
    iPad Mini 16GB LTE - $350
    iPhone 5S 32GB - $749

    Easy decision.
