If you are an infrequent user for needing a hotspot, then the phone hotspot might be sufficient.

Reasons for a separate device.

There would be less drain on the phone's battery by using a dedicated hotspot device.

The signal detection might be stronger, but that is speculation on my part.

You might be able to connect more devices to a dedicated hotspot device. I know the phones are limited in the number of devices that can connect to it.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
