Which one lasts longer - an iPod Classic or iPhone?

Would it be better if I just stored all my music on my iPod Classic instead of my iPhone 8? The iPod Classic has 160gb and the iPhone 8 is 256GB.

    The old 160GB iPods had actual hard drives in them and mechanical drives can and will fail eventually. The iPhone has flash-based storage which should theoretically last longer, although most likely the battery will wear down before the memory does.

    I assume you mean battery life.

    That would be the iPod classic since it doesn't have to power a high resolution larger display, vs the iPhone 8, though it would hold less music as well.
