I have been playing poker on mobile devices for a couple of years now because I often have to go out and I don't want to miss any tournaments. I have always thought that it is a very bad idea to play poker if you are with friends or family gatherings, I like to play it at home on my computer because I get maximum concentration on the game, but on mobile if you are not at home playing alone concentrated it's not a good game

I 100% recommend playing from your homes

Definetly better but not everyone has the luxury to spend hours over hours in front of the PC

I agree with you. I also sometimes play on my smartphone, but in reality the results are always worse than when I play on PC. In my opinion, playing on a smartphone is acceptable in cases where there are some unforeseen circumstances, when the connection is lost, or there is no electricity, when you urgently need to continue the game.

I cannot use a Phone App, it's that simple, The only app I have to use is one called "My GP" and that is to order my repeat prescriptions every month I switched on the Bluetooth connection to my Phone ordered my Script which took just 2 minutes, and my battery level dropped by 6%.
I hear people yelling "Buy a new Phone" but why should I? It does what I want it to do and if I want to play Poker, I use my Laptop.
It sickens me when some people will go on about saving the Environment but they don't think twice about ditching their mobile phone for the latest model.
My phone receives text messages, phone calls and wakes me up in the morning, and if I had to buy another it would be a waste of money as that is all I want from a phone.

Of course, the best choice would be to play on a computer because you will see everything comfortably and you can play without being distracted by anything, but not everyone can afford to play so many hours at the computer every day because we all go to work and some family have children and all this can prevent us from playing poker, so many of us play on the phone

I downgraded my "smart phone" to a "dumb phone".

Some people just have to stay connected to everything all the time. No wonder stress-related illnesses are at an all-time high.

I have played from desktop\laptop and smartphone. My best score on one site was grinding MTT from their mobile app. I would recommend PC if you want to grind from multiple tables and track play properly.

I prefer to play poker on my computer than on my devices, specially because I don't like the device versions. For me the best app is the 888poker, but still is not good.

Actually playing poker in tournaments without maximum concentration is not a good idea, you end up making a bad move that could end your progress for hours!:unsure:🎧

I play poker on my laptop. This case the screen is enough big for me. The smaller screen is not comfortable.

I only play from my PC because my phone is too old to run poker apps. I really need to get a new phone so I can continue games when I need to go out but I'm not sure how multitabling works on a phone. Does anybody multitable on a phone ?

I use it on the computer, due to the number of tournaments. On cell phones it is not comfortable to play several tournaments at the same time. But when I'm playing just one tournament, sometimes I switch to my cell phone.

If a person works a lot, then he can only play at home. Poker requires concentration.

If I'm playing one or two tables, I use my phone, and then I can play away from home and do some other things at the same time. But I usually play 4 or 5 tables at the same time, so a computer is better for me, because I can see everything on the screen at once, and not on the phone, where you can only see one table and you have to constantly switch to the others

I always get my wife's used phones when she upgrades. I use my cell phone to tell me when i am invited to local live games. I know nothing more than how to turn it on and check and respond to messages. That is the extent of my poker via device! The screen is much larger on my computer.

The small screen strains my eyes if I look at it for more than 15 minutes or so and I can never correctly aim my fingers to make the right actions, so I vastly prefer playing on a desktop vs. a phone.
