Q: Which is better to buy/use in China: smart phones or tablets?

Am thinking about my next upgrade and I'm torn between the two. I would love a big screen to do the multimedia apps that I most want to use this device for, but I need a phone too. That, and being in a crowded subway is rather convenient even though it doesn't seem to bother other commuters. 

 

Just wondering where everyone stands on this "space-age old" debate - especially on the China angle.

Presently my mind seems to like the Samsung Galaxy Mega, it's a really clunky phone and a small tablet in one, but in reality I would probably just pick any smart phone with 5" screen, my eyes are still good enough for reading on that screen size, or watch movies. 

A tablet without 3G has no purpose outside of the home, the severe lack of reliable free wifi makes it useless, it can of course be tethered to a phone but don't want to carry to much gear around. 

your usage needs are relevant to give a better answer

Well, I have both...smiley. I don't find my tablet useless. I watch a lotta movies, can do that in bed, train, plane, whatever. Perfect for traveling...and private classes! You can walk in almost any place now and get free wifi. Love the Nexus 10 cuz the speakers are at the front of the screen, a contender for it is only the Sony Z tablet, never cared about Apple.

My phone (HTC One S ) fits in any pocket, don't find big phones very useful, they look ridiculous when you are making a call (don't look very comfortable to hold either).

No No No, wrong wrong..

 

You need a "Phablet" (Phone +Tablet) = Samsung Mega 6.3 or Samsung Phone tab 8.0

I just bought one of those new Samsung combo phones/tablets.  A little learning curve but otherwise great. 7 inch screen.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
