To my mind it fully depends on your project features, I mean demands on browser support. If you your potential visitors or your client's clients use modern browser - you may use Bootstrap4 as it is based on Flexbox and you get all at once. By my practice nowdays I still use Bootstrap 3 as I am asked to think about IE and I use flexbox only with some elements and including properties so page look quiet well in IE. But I encourage my clients to move to modern browsers all the time as Flexbox is really awesome thing! No doubts!

I'm also quite interested in knowing the answer to this question. Is it better to use one or the other, or a combination of both?
