    What is the best device for gaming? I know that phones are much more convenient, especially while you're en route but tablets are better for the home environment IMO.

    Battery life is pretty good on the newer phones, but really, it's the tablets that have the "all-day" battery.

    If you were in the market for a new device, and looking at mostly the gaming side of things, I'd go for a tablet. Pound-for-pound, I reckon they're cheaper.

    The problem with tablets is that they're not that optimized, they're starting to lose popularity. Honestly, the battery life on them isn't that impressive either. The screens are pretty big.

    I feel they're losing market because the phones are getting enormous.

    The battery in my tablet is the size of a large phone, it's capacity is fantastic. I charge my Samsung S2 Tab once a week, I get around 15 hours screen on time, and it's well supported.

    Yup. For example, look at the Nexus 6 - one inch less than the Nexus 7 tablet and it has superior hardware, I don't know if it's just bad marketing from Google or they don't focus on tablets anymore.

    I would say a tablet, but I rather stick to my phone since it is more convenient to carry around and the fact that most of my games I play is on my phone if not my handhelds.

    Can't exactly whip out a tablet for a quick game of Alphabear while in a queue!

    I'd feel so stupid, people judging my strategy from behind me while I poke at a glowing slab of glass...

    It's fun on tablet for home setting, but I usually just play on my smartphone.

    If you really have to choose between a tablet and a phone for gaming I'd say the former is better. That said, they are both awful gaming devices unless you only play simple games on them.

    For gaming? I'd say tablets. I think it's pretty obvious that it's the superior option. Phones weren't exactly made for gaming anyway. I mean neither was tablets, but it's not like it had that many uses to begin with. I use it to read a book and that's about it.

    I personally can't stand playing games on my phone. I only play games on my iPad. I tell my kids it must be because I am old now and like a bigger screen. I just find phones too small for my fingers to get in there and do any gaming, but I am still rocking the iPhone 4s, too.

    Between the two, I'd say that tablets are better for gaming. It's more comfortable and you have a bigger screen. Most games are far better on a tablet.

    I prefer tablets by far. Many times I have screwed up because of the small phone screen and I end uo clicking something I wasn't supoosed to. Tablets have better screens and I feel better graphic appreciation. I like looking at all the details and phones make that very hard.
