Do some research for yourself and see if it is something you would like. What one person likes another may not. It's all a matter of personal choice.

Both islands are nice - tropical white sand beaches with crystal clear waters. Here are some pictures, so you can compare a bit:

Perhentian: https://www.molon.de/galleries/Malaysia/EastCoast/Perhentian/all/

Redang: https://www.molon.de/galleries/Malaysia/EastCoast/Redang/

The difference is that Redang is more upmarket, resort based, while Perhentian is a bit more backpacker level, with a multitude of places to stay (and choice of restaurants).

BTW, between these two islands, there is also Lang Tengah. Quite cute and less known outside Malaysia.

As above, both are great and Perhentian Kecil has more budget accommodation options.
