Which split screen kind is most useful?

What kind of split screen should I buy? A horizontal, diagonal or vertical split screen? Which is by experience the most useful?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe horizontal is for people who primarily shoot in landscape mode, vertical for those who shoot mostly in portrait mode (so thot it's horizontal in that mode) and diagonal for those who shood a good mix of both.
