    I have been saving and can (finally!) afford either an iPhone 4s or an iPad 3. Which would you recommend I get as their prices are similar-ish. I currently live in the Republic of Ireland but hope to move to London to study in Sept. so would I be better off if I wait until then or just buy an unlocked iPhone (which is what I plan on doing anyway as they have a higher resell value). I want to study Vet. Med. and I have a laptop so these would be just extra gizmos... Any advice you have is appreciated, be it personal experience or whatever!

    iPhone as you already have a laptop.

    I'd say get the Samsung Galaxy S3 though but that's only because my bf has it and the screen is bigger than that of the iPhone 4S and it looks so sleek and pretty.

    Since I like to use a product before accurately judging it, I bought an iPad only to return it after a week of usage. The iPhone is inferior to phones running variants of Google's Android operating systems.

    Great. It does everything a restrictive device can do. :clap:

    The S3 is a great phone! I also ordered it and played around with it, but the One X is superior.

    Oh I've not played with the HTC. I'm a little soured from HTC because I had the Hero (the one with the 'chin' ) and it died horribly on me.

    I wouldn't recommend HTC's at all..! Out of the whose though, I would go for the Iphone 4s, it does everything the Ipad does and more!

    iPhone.. so much more portable. iPad's aren't really necessary when you've already got a laptop, the novelty begins to wear off after a while!

    HTC's 2011 phones were sub-par. I was impressed with them this year though! (so far)

    If you need a new phone, get the iPhone. If you don't, then you already have a laptop so you don't need an iPad. iPhone already does all that iPad does. I really don't see the point of iPad, other than if you haven't got a laptop already, and even then it's much better to get a laptop instead anyway.

    That's because the iPhone can't do much in the first place. :laugh:
