Tablet or Smartphone ?

I've got a laptop... two actually but the Mac gets used everyday. I've also got a Kindle Fire HD which is getting the battery charging problem again I was thinking of dumping the Kindle and having a Smartphone instead. My current phone is fairly stupid so I would just upgrade. Anyone done this ? Pros and cons ?

depends on what you want to do on it tbh. Anything and everything is likely to be a compromise in some ways.....

Amazon phone if you really want to stay with Kindle style features? (I they give it to you for free....)

Worth thinking about but a bit more than I want to spend.

I'm having trouble justifying a lap top, tablet and smartphone. Definite overlap of capabilities, if you see what I mean.

I've looked at the new Fire phone, after the trouble I've had with the Fire HD I'm not exactly well disposed towards Amazon or Kindle products.

This is an investigation into possibilities, a faff requires something I'm definitely going to get but put it off. This is not faff capable

screen size?
required s/w? e.g. writing Word docs on the device etc?
installation mechanisms - store / cd / dvd?
battery life?

all things to be considered and prioritised :-)
