My phone is like a miniature computer. I have unlimited data on it, so I basically have internet anywhere I go.

It's a little entertainment device I can take anywhere with 5g speeds. It's incredible.

But can it run Crysis?

not powerful enough to outright replace desktop pcs yet, but the portability still makes it incredibly useful

It's not like a miniature computer, it is a miniature computer. Even that's not accurate. What you're referring to as a miniature computer is actually a handheld computer, or as I've recently started calling it, a pocket computer. Minicomputers are actually as big as a person and were popular in the 1970's. Think the PDP-11. Desktops and laptops are microcomputers (hello? MICROsoft?) and phones and tablets are pocket computers. They have boards, CPUs, RAM, storage, and support networking as you're well aware.

I remember how in 2007 I had to buy a new desktop computer to run Oblivion. Now it would run on a smartphone. Pretty crazy when you think about it.

It's a state-of-the-art surveillance and data-collecting tool! Just for you! On the go!

All I do is surf the internet and listen to music. Why would I need an overpowered computer?

 No.282674

Microsoft really dropped the ball when it came to their phone. They could've made it so your phone replaced your desktop computer (just slide it into a dock when you are home and get a full windows environment on your phone), but instead they just made another shitty phone OS that no one wanted.

This.
Buying a phone is a waste of money, they're small, underpowered computers with a tiny screen, and they're literally designed to break or become slow in 3 years.

Also they are absolute shit for games or any kind of real work, their only purpose is to take selfies for social media.

Bed is for sleeping, wiz. Stop ruining your brain by shining a bright light directly into your eyes at night.
