Phi Phi Don is where the resorts and township are located, Phi Phi Ley is the one where the Beach was filmed and there are no resorts or shops there (well there is a little Kiosk and you can camp there in arranged tour groups).

Both are popular and most day trips will take you to both, maybe an hour on Phi Phi Ley to swim and relax then lunch and shopping time over on Phi Phi Don Tonsai Bay.

Both worth a visit.

If you try to see both Phi Phi islands AND around Krabi in one day, there's no way you are going to see it all.

Phi Phi is beautiful (especially Phi Phi Ley)

Railay beach (near Krabi) is also very very beautiful. (nicer IMO) and has 3 beaches although one is not so nice but Ton Sai (a rock climbers mecca is not far away)

That does not get you to Ao Nang which has their own long beach and touristy things. Nor does it even put you into Krabi town.

If you rent a speedboat and try to see it all in one day, sure you can see the highlights (Phi Phi Ley, Railay and Pranang beaches) but you will miss many small islands in between, and the other places i mentioned above.

My brother would try to do it. I wouldn't.
