Several years ago, the fastest and most reliable way to surf the web was via a personal computer, mostly desktop computers. As time went on, technology achieved a higher milestone in the manufacturing of mobile phones. Smart phones were invented and they also have access to the internet. Year in, year out, these smart phones are being upgraded to the extent that you can do almost everything on your smart phone ranging from surfi g the web to downloading files and documents.

The big question is which gadget do you prefer surfing the web with and why?

PC still. Multiple monitors make things easier to organise. Not to mention the fact it has more power than the phone.

All the modern websites are now mobile ready so this won't make any difference for normal users. However it PC always seemed to me more comfortable as in one glance I see the whole page and my eyes pin point the material I require and if not simply close the page with keyboard shortcuts and move on the next page. The PC just makes my work fast. For all other casual surfing any mobile suffice the purpose like the samsung I just have.

Smartphones work almost like a PC in a lot of ways. If you need to go online, you can do almost everything from communicating, being entertained, information search, connecting with various social media sites, etc. Its very big advantage is its portability and you can have fun taking pictures anywhere you go.

A desktop has the big screen advantage which enables you to read things easily especially if you have vision problems. Some websites are better seen in a desktop than smartphone and you have to download their mobile app to get better viewing. It is also best when you are working like video editing, writing, graphic designing, spreadsheets and a host of creative stuff. You can also work on multiple screens. The only disadvantage is portability. You cannot just carry it anywhere due to its weight.

I prefer both as they are essential for my personal use and work.

You can of course surf internet from your phone, however, there is limitation because of the screen size and the on screen keyboard.
It is said these days more people browse internet from phone than PC, however, most of these users are doing general things through theri phone such as checking social media, playing games, checking emails or watching videos. Internet is more than this.

I prefer to use mobile for my most immediate personal use. It takes convenient data packages when it comes to internet, that too at no extra cost. Bit I still feel that a PC or a laptop is way better than a smartphone. The reason being that they have more flexibility when it comes to equipping networking softwares and hardwares. So you're likely to have better connections in a PC. Also typing is a lot more difficult in a mobile than a PC. Even if you're browsing, it's difficult to notice fine details with a smartphone for which I believe a larger screen of that of a PC is well-suited.

Definitely the PC gets my vote. Even with the best of SmartPhones, I have noticed that certain formats at certain sites are not adequately viewable or represented as they are, of course, on the full screen of a large laptop. Also, I have big fat fingers, so my speed of typing is drastically limited by the small touch screen of a phone, and I tend to make way too many errors there.

We can surf in both choices you gave. However, there are big differences. One is that, the mobile phone is more convenient to use while the other is not. Two, the websites gives services about a mobile viewing and a pc viewing but in mobile phone you can view both styles. However I am more comfortable with viewing in a pc style. I think because I already get used to it that viewing in a smaller screen would disappoint me. But if I have to do heavier stuffs such as downloading, I prefer using PC since it gives a faster service, like being able to multitask and be able to run all the sites simultaneously. I only use my mobile phone in doing small stuffs.

Using internet, I prefer to use pc than mobile phone because first is the physical reason that pc is way bigger than mobile phones and also I think that pc can grasp more internet signal than mobile phone.

Hi! I prefer to surf the internet using my smartphone. It is so convenient and easy. You can put in your pocket and use it wherever you go, unlike laptops or desktops. However, I use pc when it is needed. For example, some websites need you to use a laptop for communication process and transactions, and not a mobile phone. It does not happen all the time, so, I turn to my smartphone and use it for leisure and other things.

I use the iPhone for answering emails, Whatsapp, GPS, booking.com and tripadvisor. Usually on-the-road things.
But to be really productive i have to use a desktop computer. For instance i have downloaded cPanel app for iphone and i hate! takes me ages to do things that usually take seconds in a desktop. Writing big texts are also impossible to write in a smartphone or even in an iPad.

I still prefer using my laptop because I usually have it for work. I just use my smartphone right now to play games r take care of my schedule and listen to music. Both are eseential to me but I can say that I can do more with my laptop in terms of doing some jobs.

PC! I can do a lot if I use PC, like downloading unlimited games that I like, movies, songs. I have a lot of space than mobile. In terms of surfing, I used both actually but when I have a project to make, I used PC. My work required to use PC because of softwares that I used, so most of the time i'm using PC

Off course desktop is the best option. It will surf all the things fast. It is easy to manage and store the things. It will provide you the big screen display the information of browsing.

Mobile is quite complicated for the surfing but when you would like to search anything instantly then mobile is the best. It is best for the quick search.

There are definitely different benefits to reading and writing email on a PC and mobile phone.
Mobile is best for quick responses to urgent emails while on pc it is best for crafting lengthier emails.
Aside from that taking photos or videos is still much easier to do on a mobile device than on a laptop or PC
so it's better to own the two devices.

I prefer desktop, because there are still alot of sites that best viewed in a desktop mode. Though I use more of the mobile browsing because I am always on the go. I can access it anytime and anywhere.

For me its computer. You can do a lot of things in computet rather than phones. Though the features of phones is similar to computer software but it has limitations. Much convenient in using computer compared with mobile phone.

I think I can go with both. I can do tasks at home thru my PC and if I'm out I can still do tasks using my phone. So, it's somehow essential to have them both working together.
