 Different ways to shade, time consuming or not, they all have different outcomes. Smudging is one of the easier or harder ways to shade, depending on your needs. Smudging is very hard to manipulate. You could either make it very good, or very flat, depending on how you work out the value and opacity. It could look very amateur or very professional. I personally think smudging should be saved for photo realistic art, not  20 minute sketches that probably would look horrible with smudging.
