Anyone else notice that the One V is a complete retread of the old Sprint HTC Hero? I thought they put up the wrong pic at first. lol.

Smartphone as I want some thing very portable but powerful enough to use just like a computer. Come to think of it is should be like a Swiss army knife with computing, TV, Movies, Digital wallet, Digital Keys, Remote control, etc... is what I dream of.

A tablet because I'm currently attending the University of Nevada Reno and a tablet is by far more beneficial for me as I can put my text books electronically on it as well as find useful apps for my studies.

A smartphone fits my lifestyle better. It is more convenient when I'm on the go. Also, I can't do without Whatsapp.

A smartphone fits my lifestyle better because I need and prefer something very easy to store, access, and use on the go, from a pocket and with one hand! Smartphones are simply more portable and flexible for use on the go!

I would say a tablet. Truth be told, I hardly use my smartphone. When im home i use my kindle fire for everything. Web, movies, books etc... And with how their making tablets better and better it'll all be tablets in the end.

For me it would have to be a smartphone/phablet with a nice screen because I'm forever on the go

Smartphone, because it is the only real way to carry all your favourite devices in a reasonably-sized package. In my country i have seen no more than 3 people using a tablet outdoors contrary to almost everybody who listens to music, takes pictuers, checks mail an so on and so forth on a smartphone.

Tablets fit my lifestyle better - only by a 55/45 split. Multimedia is easier to consume on a tablet, and as a musician, carrying a tablet with my sheet music instead of lugging volumes. And no need for a music stand light. Smartphones are much more portable, and work better than tablets as music players and organizers.

Definitely a smart phone as its a one stop shop for everything I can do with a tablet and more. It would be nice for my smartphone to have the battery life of current tablets, but apart from that the phone wins.

A smartphone fits my lifestyle better. They're just more portable. I still own both, however.

Just give me a big ol' smartphone. Oh, that's right I have one. Could really use a tablet for at home though.

A smartphone definitely fits my lifestyle better because it has all the functions of a tabelt while being super portable.

Smartphone. It's convenient, easy to take with you and has more communication options. A tablet is definitely a second device to compliment your smartphone.

Personally a smartphone because I can carry it around wherever I go.

A smartphone, data on the go and it fits in my pocket.

Tough question. I guess it all depends. I like tablets for reasons of being able to enjoy videos and read books with having to squint. However, nothing beats the portability of a smartphone. Today's smartphones already have all of the capabilities if not more than most tablets. Plus, I already have a data connection. Now as soon as more 1080P smartphones are released that don't have such a huge pocket footprint, my life will be complete. They are the perfect middle ground.

Smartphones are more preferable for some on the go, with its rather portable size over the tablet and their larger sizes. But to be honest, I would prefer a tablet and their larger screen sizes when using it at home. A tablet would be nice at home, if its a tablet with only Wi-Fi connection with its larger screen size, where as a smartphone with data is for on the go.

Smartphone, as it basically has all the same functions plus easier to carry.

Smartphone because I can use it anywhere I go. I wouldn't walk around with a tablet and at home, I can use my laptop.

Definitely a smartphone. For some reason tablets seem like a (fun) novelty to me.

Smartphone due to convenience, but I'd love a table too.
