10 Reasons Why You Still Need A Tablet If You Have A Smartphone

So, you’ve got a smartphone. And it’s great! But you find yourself looking at tablets, wondering: do I still need a tablet if I have a smartphone? What can a tablet do, that a smartphone can’t?

Good questions! To try and answer them, here are 10 ways a tablet is better than a smartphone.

#1 – That Big, Beautiful Screen

Sure, there are big phones, and small tablets, but have you tried talking on a phone with a 7-inch screen? Not recommended.

#2 – The Benefits of a Dedicated Device

Sure, your smartphone can play movies, music, and games. You can use it to browse the web and so on. But having a dedicated device means you can use it, and your phone, at the same time.

#3 – Gaming

The difference in screen real estate really makes a difference. There are some amazing games for mobile devices, but they can be a real pain on a smaller screen.

Fun fact: on average, tablets are less expensive than smartphones with similar features. Conversely, tablets tend to be more powerful than similarly priced phones.

#5 – Battery Life

It’s not just about that big, beautiful screen (although it is: see #1), but about comfort, and not competing with a thousand other factors when it’s time to stream.

#8 Getting Work Done

While you technically can use Google Drive, Microsoft Office, and other productivity apps in their smartphone-only forms, the tablet versions are not only feature-packed, but there’s space to properly edit.

#9 – Versatility

Anything that your smartphone can do – including taking phone calls with apps like Skype – your tablet can do. It can also fill in for your laptop in pinch.

#10 – Peripherals

More than just cases, with a wide array of Bluetooth keyboards and other accessories, your tablet can expand its versatility in ways that your smartphone can only dream of.

In the end, your smartphone is great, but there are plenty of reasons to own a tablet as well.

  • I like working on tablets, the only downside I personally faced is that they are hard to carry when traveling. Also, many a times they need me to spread my hands and disturbing big fat guy sitting beside me in the flight.

  • I need to travel a lot for business & it’s very convenient for me to show stuff to clients on a tablet. More convenient than carrying a laptop around.
