Top 6 reasons a mobile phone trumps a handheld.

1. You'll have it with you anyway, no need to carry something extra.

2. Screen resolution and size. Most phones have higher resolution than the handhelds and are also lighter.

3. Emulators, everything from a snes, psp, 3ds, n64, etc. and it doesn't cost you a dime

4. Has more uses, more apps

5. Faster

6. PCs and consoles have the better fully featured games anyway.

Reason why Handhelds trump mobile phones for gaming.

1. Handheld games have a dedicated control scheme instead of relying on the touch screen.

I like the handhelds better because the Japanese video game industry seems to be prioritizing handhelds I tend to prefer Japanese games over western ones
