First of all, both are insanely good, and it's hard to add more to the thread than what has already been said.

Priest is easier to level. And it can be a god in PvP.
Paladin is awful to level but one of the best RP classes in the game. And you never go oom.
I disagree, but this also depends on how you want to level.
Paladins are (if I can repeat the word) insanely safe to level. A lot of auto-attacking, and that could be potentially boring if you are not into that at all, but they are very
safe because of mail/plate, heals, very
strong defensive cooldowns, and relatively strong attacks—and running out of mana is not as dangerous. It's just slow to level one. They can do alright in a sudden PvP encounter too, just because of their defensive cooldowns.
Priests? They are good too, but the world will be a bit dangerous because of cloth-armour. In PvP while levelling, their mana drains pretty quickly, because it will be rather difficult to balance between heals and damage. Priests are somewhat easy to level, but I would personally place the Paladin as easier
to level, but more boring than a Priest, even if the Priest consists of a lot of wanding.
