Some people prefer to use a tablet when they play mobile games. And some people just don't like the big screen and stick to the smartphone. Which one do you prefer and why?

I'm not really into mobile gaming anymore so I don't think that I would get a tablet just for it.

For gaming on mobile device that isn't specifically made for gaming (aka handhelds like the 3DS, PS Vita, etc) I prefer to game on a tablet over a phone, the larger screen really does make a difference and the fact that if my battery dies mid game session I ain't without a phone until I can reach a charger. :D So for me, definitely tablet. :)

A tablet is going to be far better for gaming than a smartphone, this is because a smartphone screen is relativity tiny. Not like that is saying much as both of them rely on terribly on touchscreen controls, which have zero tactile feedback meaning you have to consistently look at where your fingers are, and before people bring up the fact you can use a controller, a lot of games on mobile platforms have zero controller support.

I'm a huge fan of portable gaming. I owned almost every form and shape of it, From Atari Lynx, Game Gear, Game Boy, PSP etc. and i must say that when you're playing on a mobile device, the most important thing is how you play, how responsive the controls are and i think that a smartphone fills more this requirement.

I guess the phone by default, since I don't even have a tablet. Although, even then, the only mobile gaming I've done on my phone was playing Pokémon Emerald on an emulator :p .
