Using Smartphone for video lessons here

I'm finally ready to begin using Italki for Spanish lessons (probably one lesson every week or so). I don't have a computer with a camera right now, though. I have a decent Samsung smartphone, though, and use it for video calls with family and friends all the time (through Skype or Duo). I'm wondering if others here have used their smartphones for lessons, or if most of you use computers. I guess I'm just concerned if using a smartphone instead of a computer would be seen as inconvenient/tacky by the teacher on the other end.

Thanks very much for reading.

Like the others mentioned, it depends on the type of lessons you´re looking for. If it´s just conversational practice, there´s absolutely nothing wrong with using a smartphone. I usually use my computer, but have had to use my phone a couple of times and it went fine. Don´t make technical issues stop you from improving your languages!

I use Skype to have my lessons, and I use both my cell phone and a computer at the same time. The reason is Skype works better on my cell phone.  The sharing of files, the corrections, the messages back and forth, etc. are done on the computer.  Everything is synced up instantaneously.
