Based on my life and work, the smartphone. I'm constantly on the go and always checking email, and often texting back and forth with family members. It allows me to do everyhtingn i need and then some. I can read on it...in a pinch, like when on flights, but its compact size allows easy carry as well

Id have to say a tablet fits my lifestyle better!

I like to read quite often, and while I do have a Galaxy Note, when viewed on a 7" or bigger screen, reading just feels "natural" seeing as it match's the size of most actual books's readable space!

smartphones fit me better.
I use my phone on a dailybasis and it goes every with me. Theorhetically I could downgrade to a dumbphone and pick up a Nexus 7 or something, but it wouldnt fit in my pocket and it'd be really friggen hard to hide the fact I'm looking at it on the job.
I'd like a tablet, but it wouldn't ever really leave my house.

A smartphone because it is easier to carry around and communicate with it.

a 5" smartphone meets the majority of my needs. It's that hybrid screen size that makes web browsing and video watching easier on the eyes while still being pocket friendly that makes it the go to device.

I think a tablet would, as you can still make calls, message people, and it has the big screen. The big screen is good for business people, as they can set appointments, read on a bigger screen, and do lots more that will help them. It also benefits people as it seems people would like a big screen. As long as the price isn't skyrocket high, people would use seven inch tablets as their phones. Although it is understandable people won't too, as they think it's too big and a smartphone is easier to carry around. They are right, but just my opinion, a tablet would benefit my lifestyle.

A tablet would be better for me so I can stop zooming in and out of my school applications on my phone.

7 inch tablet fits my life better. Its better to watch video on bigger screen but not as big as it cant fit my pocket so that i can carry it around easily.

My smartphone fits my needs better than a tablet, but that being said, i have a Droid DNA with pretty big screen, so it almost covers both.

I use my nexus 7 on the weekends, and at coffee shops in the mornings.

I'd say a smartphone, because at the very least I need to be able to use an actual phone at all times. But there is a place in my life for a tablet because I like to do a lot of reading, so it helps with not having to carry around many books.

A tablet, but not just any tablet. Since I am a software engineer and a student for my Master's in Computer Science, it would be nice to have a tablet that can compile source code (needs to be C++, Java, Python, C#, and everything else), utilize toolkits/APIs (Qt, OpenGL, .NET), read/write documents in MS Office format (and do it correctly), and use GPGPU processing to handle some floating-point data. Also, it would be nice to be able to use VPN to do actual office work when I'm on travel. Unfortunately, I have not seen a good implementation of such a tablet. So my hope resides among the Surface Pro to help solve some of these requirements.

I just need a phone that can browse the web in my free time, play some games, and most of all, call people. Oh yeah, and have a good interface that is relatively bug free, fast, and has no graphical slowdowns.

smart phone, portable, long battery life, small. It just works compared to tablets that need a bit more work.

Smartphone. It does everything a tablet does, but it fits in my pocket. But don't think that doesn't mean I don't want that Kindle Fire HD, cause I do!!!

I prefer a smart phone. I periodically consider a tablet, but always come to the same conclusion; why? I can do just about anything on my phone. I don't have a need to consume on-line video content, so I don't really need the larger screen. When Windows 8 machines are more competitive, I may re-consider because I could then do full-on work with it. Until then, my GS2 suits me just fine.

Smart phone! Is always portable and don't worry about storing it in your pocket or bag. Plus having cellular signal to Google anything anywhere beats regular tablets without service.

I would have to go with the tablet simply because i'm a big fan of videos and movies online and a big screen help with that. I own a motorola smartphone and I basically use it for calls, most of my times are spend on the tablet because I like big screens.
