Smile Concrete stain or paint???

We are redoing our front porch and back steps which are both made of concrete. However I want something that will hide the gray color but be long lasting and easy to apply and take care of. I know there are lots of different colors in stain for concrete and of course in paint but we are not sure of their durability and practical use. Any opinions???

Concrete stain will almost always outlast paint on concrete. It's easier to recoat too, stain will often wear away but seldom peels like a porch and deck enamel [or any paint on horizontal surface] will.
