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!

Smartphone, the portability

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!

A tablet is one thing I still need to add to my collection of things that I havent used.

Tablet for me. Watching videos and surfing the net is easier with a larger screen.

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).

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'm always on the go... need something that I can toss in a pocket! Plus taking pics is not easy with a tablet(Also doesn't look good). Smartphone all the way!

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.

I FEEL A SMARTPHONE BETTER FITS MY LIFE STYLE AS I NEED MY PHONE AND INTERNET AT THE SAME TIME. iF I HAD JUST A TABLET I WOULD HAVE TO CARRY BOTH.

Smartphone for me. I need it for Exchange for work, then making calls to talk to my wife. I use my tablet but I need my smartphone more.

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.

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.

Personally a tablet. The bigger screen makes it more comfortable to browse phone arena.com :)

Smartphone. It works better, and I pretty much have it at all times. So it's always there when I need it. Tablets haven't been completely adopted by app developers, so not yet...

Smartphone. You can't beat portability and there isn't much that a laptop can do that a phone can't nowadays. Although it would be nice to replace the o'l laptop with a tablet someday.

A smartphone suit my life style. My smartphone is an all-in-one device and is alway with me no matter where i go.

Fits my life style better would be a smartphone. Just as capable as a Tablet but easier to carry around and make phone calls.
