It’s far safer to use ramps for oil changes and much other under-car work. If you use a jack, also use carefully placed jack stands on both sides of the car. It’s much faster and safer to use ramps.
Once you are safely under there and looking at the oil filter, seeing how much clearance there is around it and over it, the choice of tool becomes clearer. I have usually found that if the outside of the filter is clean, I can remove it with my hand inside a rubber-faced glove. On my hard-to-access Honda Civic I prefer the Fram filters that have a rubbery grip surface.
