The iPad 3 and iPhone 4S both record 1080p video. But the iPhone 4S has an 8 megapixel camera while the iPad 3 has a 5 megapixel camera. Should you choose the iPhone 4S over the iPad 3?
Well, no. The difference in megapixels does not matter when it comes to video. One second of 1080p video is only twenty-four 2 megapixel pictures, after all.
The iPad 3 is actually a better choice for video than the iPhone 4S. With newer software and hardware, some of the kinks from the iPhone 4S have been fixed. Plus it has a big screen for easy viewing!
So if you have a choice between iPad 3 or iPhone 4S, you should definitely pick the iPad 3.
