In brief: Sometimes easier
When using a dry powder inhaler, the "hand inhale" coordination is not required.
You active the inhaler, the powder is released and you breathe in as directed. Make sure to rinse mouth afterwards and clean inhaler as directed.

In brief: May work better
Some find that dry powder inhalers work better. That is probably a debatable point, but they do work well for a lot of people.
