You should always use Report Definitions as List Views and Summary Views are deprecated rules. If you have use cases which are not feasible with report definitions, please share them with us (and your account executive) so that those could be addressed in a future release of the platform.

List views and Summary views are deprecated and they enhanced the functionality of Report definition.
A report definition rule defines a report definition report. This rule generates an SQL query that retrieves and sorts information from the PegaRULES database, an external database, or an Elasticsearch index, and generates HTML that displays the results in a variety of formats. You have a range of options for interacting with the results, depending on the settings on the Report Viewer tab.
Because of the ease-of-use of report definition rules, managers can create, share, modify, and schedule report definition reports with little or no assistance from application developers.
