A smartphone, it has many more uses than a tablet does now-a-days and is much more mobile.

I prefer a smartphone, they offer everything a tablet does but lets you call people.

This has got to be the hardest question.... AAAAAH..... *thinks for a moment*

I got it! I think the best thing for my lifestyle is a smartphone. Tablets are great, but being required to have Wi-Fi everywhere is a pain in the butt. I can whip out my phone from my pocket, shoot a mass text to everybody I need to meet for the day, and hop on a Hangout when it's time to meet them virtually anywhere with my HSPA+ connection. Sure, the movies and documents on tablets are great, but they require a stable data connection that can be provided by my phone's hotspot. So the phone is much more important.

Smart phone. Its always on and in my pocket when I'm out and about. Tabs are nice when at home but they don't fit quite as nicely in a pant pocket

A smartphone for me - the size is just too convenient. I have no problems carrying one everywhere, but that's not true with a tablet (for me).

Smartphone fits me better since I'm always moving.

Smartphone definitely because I need to make calls and their easier to carry around wherever you go.

Smartphone by far as I don't like to carry buiky equipment around everywhere. I like to have everything I use available all the time so a tablet is only partially useful and with smartphone screen sizes increasing to what they are they are getting big enough to solve most daily activities.

Tablet, so coworkers can see that I am taking notes and not tweeting/txting during meetings!

Smart phone for me because it's more practical to get around with. Tablet at home so I'm not draining my phone battery.

A smartphone because it is easy to carry around and it has the same features as a tablet.

I have to go with a smartphone. Typically smaller and you can make calls.

a tablet is better. while i think i would still carry a smartphone, if i had a tablet, i would probably carry a smaller screened smartphone and leave all the more heavy duty stuff to the tablet. Thanks for the giveaway!

Smartphone you can't put a tablet in your pocket tablets are nice for at home or on a plane to watch a movie but a smartphone can do that and more.

Smartphone all the way! I need to access info when I'm walking around and besides, who wants to take photos with their tablet. Smartphones are a lot more practical if slightly less fun to use.

I always have my phone on me(as does everyone else in the world), but to answer your question, prob a tablet. I spend far more time absorbing web-based info than nibble-sized communication (txt and twitter) or talking... Not a great question - this isn't binary. There's no mutual exclusivity in using these 2 things. Buncha people, myself included, do use both at the same time.

Definitely the tablet. My girls and I would love it for books and movies!

Smartphone over a tablet because its basically smaller tablet that can make phone calls and do a lot of things a tablet can do also..so..definitely a smartphone :D

I use the tablet more because it is better for watching movies on the go.

i think a tablet would be good to have a portable easy to use device to use. I currently don't have a tablet but want one. I currently only have a phone but the screen size almost seems too small at times.

Smartphone, because it's more portable. Hardware-wise they're both the same, with the exception that smartphones can't make calls. Plus, phones end up being cheeper up front.

144. doonroy (Posts: 10; Member since: 19 Nov 2012)

Smartphone because we can actually call with the phone, whereas a tablet can't really do that.

By far a smartphone. Tablets are nice, but a smartphone fits in your pockets and is essentially a small tablet. They both definitely have their place though.

presently a smartphone fits my lifestyle better, b/c its more convenient. this will be changing soon however as i will soon be attending school and a tablet would be more convenient for taking notes, storing books and studying.

Having to access more and more info and be able to read it, a tablet is better suited for my uses.

While I have both a phone and a tablet, I use my phone more as I am usually out and about, but when I'm at home and have some free time, I can lie down and thoroughly enjoy my tablet while my phone sits in the corner. I think I generally prefer my tablet and it isn't too inconvenient, but my phone is much easier to deal with. A powerful smartphone better suits my lifestyle, but isn't what I'd prefer.

Smartphone. It's easier to carry with me all the time. It's also much simpler to make calls with.

If I had to choose one, I would pick the smartphone, because I am a very active person and would need the mobility. But I think from now on I will always have a smartphone and tablet.
