Went with 60/40 listen to The Smiths songs a bit more overall but Morrissey has a lot more music to choose from. Love both though I'd say The Smiths were more consistent than solo Morrissey.
My Morrissey solo listening vastly outnumbers my Smiths listening, probably something like 90% to 10%. This isn't really a reflection of quality however. I can explain it by the following:

On a 'song by song' basis, The Smiths are clearly superior to Morrissey solo with less filler - however, those songs are all embedded in my consciousness to such an extent that I don't feel the need to listen to them every day. Morrissey's solo catalogue is also HUGE, so there's much more material to choose from. Some random incredibly average solo Jesse Tobias B-side just feels fresher to me than listening to something like 'Bigmouth Strikes Again' - even if it's objectively a worse song.
