    He's better than she/her

    1. He's better than she. (Do we use suject form "she" in written English)
    2. He's better than her. (Do we use object form "her" in spoken English?)

    Thanks.

    In formal language it is possibly better to use 'I' but in everyday usage 'me' is more common unless followed by a verb or clause.
