Never having had a tablet, it would probably be the smartphone; it can do almost everything the tablet can, and can be more accessible (qwerty keyboard, 4G data, etc).

A tablet is what I want. I want it because I can bring it to place and it's very light on load. I can play games on it. View shows/movies, browse the internet, read books and etc on a tablet.

I prefer to work with tablets, but smartphones are indispensable for their portability.

Smart phone with a large screen. Ideally, it allows you to stay connected to people and information. Contrary to popular belief, voice is still necessary for communication on many levels. I love my tablet, but it still falls in the "optional" category whereas my phone never leaves my side. For someone like me who is always on the go, my Note 2 is the perfect blend, but I still would utilize a 4.7" screen if necessary. Lastly, other than Google's voice input, text input is much easier on a least for me.

I work more than I'm home. So a smartphone is better for me. Kinda hard to bring a tablet to work. To big for my lunch box.

Smartphone. I can take it wherever I go and not have to worry about protecting it as much as a tablet. Plus the screen on my phone is more than enough for what I need to have on the go. Never thought otherwise!

A smartphone fits my lifestyle best, because I'm usually out-and-about, and I like being able to have everything in my pocket.

Smartphone because of the ability to constantly have it with me in my pocket. The smartphone is constantly on me for access whenever I need it.

What fits your lifestyle better: a smartphone or a tablet? Why? Smartphones fits my life better because of the functionality. I believe that tablets are slowly become more of an after thought with the emergence of the Note and Note II from Samsung. As a married man w/ 2 boys, Im always on the go. Having a smartphone that does more than talk and text is very important to me. I want to make sure that I have aphone that will do most of what I want it to do: take notes, play games, talk, text, and surf the web without searching for a WiFi hotspot. Smartphones are more necessary for everyday life than tablets

For me It has to be a smartphone with a replaceable battery and a good camera :) , Why : Mobility(portability), connectivity, Talk and text :), take good pictures on the go :)

Phone for sure, need it everyday. The tablet comes in handy but not portable enough to be useful all the time, besides if something is too small on the phone just hold it closer....

i always wanted to use the amazon kindle fire. A free gift would be a great way to start . I like other ones also. so any gift is welcome in holiday season.

Smartphone... simply because of the connectivity on the go...

Smartphone for me. I don't like carrying too many things... If I carry just a tablet, I would still need to carry my phone. Phablets would be perfect for me, but I'm always in the market for a new phone at the wrong time.

A smartphone is the only useful option; tablets are just toys.

A smartphone with a 4.3 inch screen or larger is the best compromise for portability, functionality, and utility in my life. I average just under 2 hours of time spent in my vehicle each week day, and I normally see about 4-5 different physical work locations in a day. A smartphone with decent battery life is the easiest solution for my mobile needs.

while at home i use my tablet more than my smartphone. on the go the tablet stays and the smartphone does all. essentially i use both almost equally...that didn't answer the question did it?

A smartphone... I always have my smartphone with me where as a tablet isn't as easy to carry around with you...

For me personally, a smartphone. Mainly because I always have it with me. I'm not in a situation where a tablet would be anything but a neat toy to have.

Smart Phone. It allows me to do all the things i can do on the tablet but fits in my pocket. A tablet just allows easier navigation of website and viewing media for me.

A smartphone definitely fits my life better. I can do almost everything on a smartphone and still carry it around in my pocket.

A smartphone fits my lifestyle better. I work at a preferred retailer of Sprint and have had the wonderful oppurtunity to see most of the handsets and tablets Sprint has to offer. After playing with them, the reason a smartphone fits my lifestyle better is my need for compact convenience. Im always on the go with my 30 minute commute to work and have a busy life at home taking care of my loving girlfriend. We share a room in an already small house and the bigger somthing is the less space we have. I have a GS3 right now and its the perfect fit. It is bigger than a lot of the smartphones I could carry but its still small enough to be easily accessible from my pocket or my car dock. And that is my lengthy reason that a smartphone would fit my lifestyle better than a tablet

A cell phone fits my lifestyle because of the size factor. I'd love to be able to carry around a tablet all day, but alas it doesn't really fit in my pocket. So many great phones out there with awesome displays allow me to have the same functionality as a tablet.
