When it comes to the choice of taking a smartphone or tablet on travel it always depends on everyone’s individual needs. Each device has its own pros and cons from the size and weight to the cost.
The advantage of a smartphone on travel is that it can replace so many other devices like music player, camera, map, translator etc.
In fact, a tablet practically has no difference from the phone except for the size and the phone module. Using a tablet, as a rule, you are not able to make calls by mobile communication. But all other functions of tablet and smartphone are identical. This is convenient as learning to use one device you can use any other without additional training.
Of course, the price of the device and the space in the baggage are also important. Tablet is larger than phone, however, if you are going to write a lot of texts, work with spreadsheets, watch movies, edit photos, read e-books and documents — we would recommend a tablet.
If you need a device to call via mobile communication, take photos, translate oral speech, find your location, follow the mail and news — a smartphone is enough.
