Is an iCloud backup the same as an iTunes backup?

If I've got iCloud backing things up, is there any need to manually do an iTunes backup via USB?

Yes, do a manual backup via USB, also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If your iDevice freezes completely, the cloud backup will do exactly ZERO to safe your a*s!

Do NOT ever rely on a cloud-anything!!!! What if you need to restore just as you have no broadband? Just when Apple's servers are overwhelmed because of a new OS launch?

No, nothing beats a local backup. iTunes does it better and faster than any other solution for any OS. Use it!
