I have the most value with a smartphone...I own a Samsung Tab and hardly use the thing as my phone is always on the ready.

If I had to only have one it would be a smartphone. The tablet would be the icing on the cake, but the phone is something that's always with me.

For me I would say a smartphone, I'm always on the go and it fits my needs for everything I do now. It's more convenient for me to carry a smartphone that to carry a tablet. Who knows that may change once a groundbreaking tablet comes out because I'm not wowed by any of the tables now.

Smartphone, due to portability but the Note 2 is really bringing the two together. If the Note gets any bigger to ~6" with 1920x1200, It would be the best of both worlds.
So I'd rather have the phablet lifestyle.

I have the Galaxy Note, but a phone is always better for me for everyday use. Tablets are great for travel so you don't have to lug around your laptop.

A smartphone fits everything into one device for me. I'm an extreme mobile user and don't have much time behind a computer or to break out the tablet.

Smartphone. Even the 7" tablets are a little bit big for me to carry with me all the time.

A tablet. Because I do a lot of presentation and taking notes and displaying them on the go.

A smartphone fits my style best. Something I can take with me anywhere and not be so conscious of its presence. A tablet is too large for me to not worry about it all the time.

I'd have to say that a smartphone fits my lifestyle best. I need to stay in touch for work and a smartphone fills the bill. A tablet is too big to be carrying around while I'm at work.

IMO a smartphone. More pocketable and can do nearly everything tablets do nowadays anyway.

26. joseph98 (Posts: 167; Member since: 03 Feb 2012)


Definitely a smart phone but in particular samsung galaxy note 2 with its large screen. Why? Simply because it's easier, more compact & lighter to carry on the go.

27. Desmund (Posts: 74; Member since: 01 Nov 2012)


Smartphone, I can carry it where I want to and it's always in my pocket. Also why pay the high price for a tablet when most phones can do it all and possibly more depending on which phone you get. Plus the extra hassle with a tablet like trying to find a case, and it's something extra to carry.

A tablet because I simply love BIG screen.

A nice sized smartphone. Like my galaxy s3. Its th best of both worlds. Not too big. Not to small. Great features. Great performance. Once it gets the premium suite update. It's going to be even more awesome!

A Tablet. I prefer a tablet because I don't work and tablet's are great cause I can use it with my younger brother so it's not just for me. I like sharing the wonderful world of the internet. :)

i would say a tablet due to the fact that i can still survive without a smartphone and traditional phones can give off a wifi signal. so either way i can still connect to the web

I own both a smartphone and a tablet, but the smartphone fits my lifestyle just because I carry it all the time and use it for every 30 minutes at least!

Probably a smartphone as the smaller size is easier to carry around. A bigger screen from a tablet would probably only benefit me at home so a smartphone is best!

It is close for me, but the smart phone probably wins. It is always with me, easier to use in most situations (especially when traveling on a bus or other public transportation).

40. Exile SS (Posts: 40; Member since: 07 Oct 2010)


Definitely a smartphone. I find that they have plenty of detail and large enough screens (especially my Note II) that watching movies, Youtube, or editing pictures are easy enough. A tablet also doesn't really do anything better than a smartphone can. Any high end tablet can be matched or beaten by a high end smartphone in terms of processing power, memory, etc...

I can't fit a tablet in my pocket, nor can it make phone calls, so a smartphone is my constant companion. But I still want a tablet (a Nexus 7 is in my near future) for entertainment.

At the moment I prefer a smart phone. we have an ipad and I just do not use it very much. Honestly, it's too big to take with me wherever I go, but a smartphone is great!

I just need one in the 4 to5 inch screen range. That way I can actually read the information on the screen but still put it in my pocket.

A smartphone, because it's my portable communication option when not on my laptop. Then again never spent much time with a tablet, so.... if I win, maybe I'd know better.

54. BREvenson (Posts: 207; Member since: 17 May 2012)


Though I don't own one (yet), a tablet seems to work better for me. Smartphones can do so much these days, but I can feel comfortable with a device (that is usually no bigger or heavier than a hardcover book) that can handle everything I would want to do, from games to music, from movies to internet. I would probably still have a phone, but maybe just a basic talk and text phone; my tablet would handle everything else...and I could work that out pretty well.

A tablet fits better my lifestyle. I am currently in college, and it would be great because I need to do a lot of research for my essays and such.
