Re: How do sync your iPhone?
My husband has a Macbook Pro from 2011 and his hard drive crashed.
He had been adamant about not backing up to icloud and only backing up to his computer... You can imagine that now, he's suddenly become a huge fan of icloud back up, lol. He's lost a ton of things which he cannot retrieve.
Live and learn.
As for me, since coming back to Apple, I have discovered something very simple:
If you set up your Apple devices to work as Apple intended them to, they really do work like a charm.
In my case, this meant buying more icloud storage space, but it was cheap and I'm glad I did.
I also set up automatic back ups because I'm a noodle head who keeps forgetting.
And I do not have any problems with either my Macbook Air or any of my other devices. Life is good.

How do sync your iPhone?
iCloud. My windows laptop was such a chore to use that I rarely ever hooked up my iPhone to sync. I'm getting a MacBook Air at the end of the month so I guess that I'll sync it more often.
However iCloud is so convenient. You don't even have to remember to do it. It just does it automatically.

How do you sync your iPhone?
Like the others, I back up to both and manually "sync" to iTunes on occasion. Why? Various reasons including being able to quickly get a new device up and running and to be able to restore something that I might have deleted by mistake.

Re: How do you sync your iPhone?
Both but I prefer having my Apps on my computer this way I control my Apps and media, especially after hearing from many people that Apple took down Apps they owned from the App Store, also there are new complaints of People who paid for Apps then the App disappeared for a week from the App Store and when it came back it was under a different developer name and they couldn't install without paying again so not to get into a weird situation like that I bought a 3Tera external hard drive, got my iTunes running on it perfectly.
Also restoring from the iCloud backup is only possible after doing a complete restore on your iDevice but with iTunes no restoring of the device needed for restoring any of the backups that you got saved.
