I use the trezor hardware wallet and its super easy to use. Just hate that it can't store ETH natively though, have to use bulilt in ethereum wallet plugin. Never tried the ledger

You can use the ledger chrome extension wallet, that's the usual way.
You can use your ledger nano S with your mycelium android wallet with a micro USB - micro USB OTG cable but be aware:
Mycelium only can handle the Legacy address of Ledger Nano S bitcoin wallet, so if you send your coins to your Segwit address, you will see an empty wallet on Mycelium...
There are some other mobile wallets that can be used with Ledger, but the above mentioned two are the most common.

Just use the ledger one, trezor is safe but it can be easily broken because it is more flexible.

The ledger one is like a pendrive in aluminium, it is almost impossible to break and it can resist for a few years.

What a horrible idea, myetherwallet is one of the most un-safe wallets that are online, it can be easily pished by hackers. Just store your Erc20 tokens in the ledger, they allow them.

Technically, if you own a Ledger, you don't store your Ethereum on MyEtherWallet. MyEtherWallet is used only for accessing your Ethereum funds. It is fairly easy to use it, especially for token transfers which native Ledger app doesn't support. What you are actually storing on your Ledger are your private keys which are used to sign transactions which are later broadcasted to the whole network. Electrum works fine with Bitcoin, especially version 3 which has introduced support for SegWit.

using myEtherwallet with ledger is safe.... you have to confirm every transaction with ledger so no problems!

Are you using Ledger because you have no other wallets to put it on? A hardware wallet would be enough to store coins on.
