Read the manpage for fdisk (read it *all*).
Then decide for yourself.

Use both and work it out for yourself, what works for someone else may not work for you, people have different abilities and requirements that factor in when comparing anything. As with every question i see here similar to this, there is no right or wrong, there's just choice.
