 With the advent of incretasingly more sophisticated technology and the fast,dependable hardware of the mobile device, people are starting to to turn more readily to their smartphone than to their tablets and pcs.   Which do you prefer?   Do you have a brand, a model that you believe is superior?    What do you think of prepaid smartphones?   Too expensive and cheaply made...?    Has anyone gone backward to their simpler, less sophisticated device?    While having free time at work,  would you gravitate more to one device or another?

I am a paper and pencil kinda of guy(old). I do not have a computer at home. I make my Lt.  transcribe my reports from paper to computer. The only technology I use is a cable box and an IPHONE.

No, and I can say why in 2 words - screen size.

I am Team Blackberry and my device is great for communication, music, and my fitness apps (Runtastic and MyFitnessPal).


But I enjoy writing on pen and paper and don't have to worry about spell check constantly reminding me that my name isn't recognized in the Webster dictionary.


I do believe that tablets may replace PCs but like someone said, phone size is the reason they won't be replaced...it's more convenient to have a bigger screen size when typing up papers, multimedia, etc.


Good question, though!

  Yes they will soon, too many people don't know how to use north, south , east and west for their direction and it would be a good idea I do think. Because we can fine places much easier than before , and where to get off the freeway or the service streets.

Dictionaries are modifiable, just put your name in the dictionary.

I would hat the thought of doing a long report on a telephone. Lap tops are here to stay.  They may use better technology in the future such as holographics, but I never see them going away.

Today's smart phones allow you to store alot of personal and financial stuff. We've had incidents, in my locale, of people having their phones grabbed out of their hands, while boarding the local Elevated Trains.  For that and many other reasons, I will stick with my "dumbphone" for the quite some time. I have a laptop, a desktop, and corded phones (landlline).  Somehow I am able to communicate as quickly as I wish.

I agree. Sure you have great convenience but you can lose them a lot easier. Also, the more advanced they are, the easier they are to break. I use a $20. flip phone that I accidently put through a sheetrock wall (tripped with it in my hand). Still works... wouldn't want to try it with a smart phone.
