Smartphone is my preferred weapon of choice due to the fact that it never leaves my side. I do own a tablet and use it when i travel for work.

My first impression was a smartphone. However, as society transitions to tablet usage, I'm finding that it is almost difficult to separate the two. They compliment each other not only as business tools, but also as personal needs.

On the go, Smartphones can quickly and easily access instant information. For business and leisure, tablets are quickly becoming the norm for more detailed and comprehensive material for presentation, shopping, reading and the list is becoming endless. To segregate smartphone and tablet, is short changing the power of the two together.

Smartphone - 90% of the functionality, but more portability.

Well, a Smartphone honestly fits my life better. Just all around more portable and constant connection is a must. Tablets can do some of those things, but I like having something in my pocket and that smartphone fits around my life a whole better

What fits your lifestyle better: a smartphone or a tablet? Why?

Honestly this is a very good question. As it determines what you do on a regular bases. However with me being in college I believe that a tablet may be beneficial to me as carrying a laptop puts more weight on you and takes up space where as a tablet is more portable and many companies and schools are turning to tablets. However a smartphone could work as well as it is smaller, even more portable and can do many thing a tablet can do and with things like the Samsung Galaxy Note II you can get the best of both worlds but for me I would choose a smartphone simply because of its ease of access, less space it takes up and it would be more beneficial as i could get alerts from blackboard on the go and stay on top of assignments as they are posted, as well as being able to stay in touch with my family as i am away

as much as i would like to say tablet, i realize when i am mobile a 4.5 to 4.7 inch screened android phone fits me better. However if I am being dormant for any extended period of time. I love the tablet. I have and own an ipad, the lack of legitimate flash is incredibly annoying.

I find myself using the playbook more, only it has a crappy screen and lack of lte solution

A phone is a better fit cause it is portable and has everything I need at my fingertips.

Smartphone. Tablets are larger smartphones without the calling feature so as much as I'd like one for entertainment and being [more] counterproductive, I would take a smartphone over a tablet any day of the week.

A: Tablet, As an IT Systems Analyst I find myself working from home often, I have tons of applications that assist in my job functions. I can access Microsoft Active Directory, use remote desktop apps, email, Skype, review tasks and files. In addition, I rather play games and surf the net on a tablet. Its just an ideal product.

Tablet because more often I take in large amounts of web-based info than I use a phone for talking n txting... but I'll never NOT have my phone on me.

A smart phone is the most useful for me. Main reason Portability. I still use a computer to do the heavy lifting but I could see myself going total Google cloud with a dock, keyboard and bigger screen for my phone.

tablet.... I like big screen space. But, smartphone has its advantages too. Both should be there.

I think a better questions is what suits you best: tablet or laptop?

A smartphone fits me because it is my all-in-one device. I like to have everything I need in one device; making calls, web browsing, taking pictures, etc. A tablet is not pocket friendly and isn't typically used for making calls. A tablet to me is just an extra perk but doesn't provide the necessities a smartphone does for me. :)
