Should I buy a new phone or get an iPad?

Asked by tinyfaery (44149points) January 2nd, 2024

The phone is about 4 years old and I smooshed it last fall so there are actually components exposed on the back of the phone, but aside from the wireless charging, it works fine. I’m not sure how much longer that will continue to be the case.

I read a lot on my phone, like a lot, a lot, and more and more I am noticing eyes strain and neck/back strain. I thought that if I got an iPad it’d solve a lot of my problems.

But I don’t think my phone can last much longer, and I know getting a new phone solves none of my problems, but I seriously don’t feel like making two big purchases in one year (potentially).

I tried to make a switch to Android last year and it’s crap, so yes it must be an iPad. Also, I read stuff that I don’t think can be read on an e-reader, unless I can read random pdfs, mobi, epub, etc. from the internet or files. Is an e-reader that much cheaper than an iPad, considering how much and iPad can do v. an e-reader?

Do you have any information that can help me make a decision?
