I hate reading paged manga as long strip so much, and so many of the shadier sites don't have paged views any more.

If I got bigger screen like at least 24 inch, I'll go single page, other than that long strip is preferable for me mmm...
But then, on smartphone, it's a toss between long strip and single page, usually depending on the font mmm...

Reading single page manga in a long strip is not too bad but actual long strip manga get annoying. Too much white space and black fades. Also only one frame at a time?? More compact pages give a better reading experience.

Most webtoons abuse the spacing between each panel and sometimes repeat half the prior chapter. I think it's because they force the authors to publish weekly a certain amount of panels. I really don't understand why after they end the popular ones aren't compiled into a better format. I usually end up zooming out when there isn't too much text.

As others said, if it was designed for long strip, that's one thing, but it can already be mildly annoying to have a double page spread when reading single page, but that sounds like a nightmare if someone just posted all single pages as long strip so now the spread is stacked on top of itself.

If a manga doesn't have any double page spreads then I would pick single page. But it just sucks when scanlators can't piece together double page spreads so it's better to just default to double page for the whole manga if any spreads do end up appearing. That way it's exactly as if you were reading it in a magazine or tankoubon.

Now it just feels weird to have to click page by page, even if my connection is better than before, would rather just scroll.
Double page was always the worst for reading on a computer, bc it was so awkward to have to scroll down to the bottom half of page 1 and then scroll back up to read the top half of page 2, then back down again to read the bottom half. Too much of that quick up and down scrolling made me dizzy lol.

I'm not a fan of "converting" manga to webtoon formats that some services do though. I think vertical scrolling can just be implemented for manga without having to shift any of the panels around, which always looks atrocious.
On a similar note, I also think most webtoons that have been converted into traditional publishing format have noticeably inferior paneling compared to series that are natively in that format.

Phone (6.7"😉 -> long strip
PC -> natively how each series was designed to be read. If mango -> single horizontal; if webcomics -> long strip
