What is there to defend on that? Phones have inarguably became worse, as far as functionality goes, ever since the smartphone fad.

I think what this image says is that over time people use their phones more as an source of entertainment, hence the bigger screens which make reading and looking movies more comfy. I don't think the author meant it to be about iPhone sizes.

>>51605709
Inarguably?

To who?

I can certainly argue they are better. In fact I'd argue they've taken the biggest leap in the section of consumer tech over he last 10 years.

They have better:

Messaging, calling, camera, screen, applications, speed.

If you're going to argue they're worse because muh battery life or muh ruggedness consider this:

Battery will last 2+ days on a single charge. Not at the moment; but I travel a lot. And having a long lasting phone is a lot better than having 8-40MP and a 5inch screen.

>>51606103

I am a clumsy idiot and can confirm I drop my phone all the time but less since I got an iPhone 5s and got a case for it.

Before that I broke my iphone 4s screen twice.

I don't know what piece of shit you've used before but there's absolutely no difference.

Still, get yourself a fucking case and stop being a whiny bitch if you're going to drop it, they're a dime a dozen and a thin silicon case is ample enough protection.

This very much. The only thing smartphones have better is Internet speed and web functionality, which may have changed in the last 4 years. You can live without everything else.
>>
>>51606754
Why would they need to be more powerful? an 808 is powerful enough without making your phone melt. what are you doing on your phone that would need you to have more power on your phone? what are you doing on it? AutoCAD?
>>
Modern smartphones aren't cell phones. They are pocket computers that are also sometimes used to make phone calls. 99% of what they do involves displaying lots of content, and a bigger screen is better for that purpose.

anyway i'm ranting :p best of luck!

Phones are increasingly becoming an infantile distraction and less a useful tool. Our memories are going to get worse as we outsource our own ability to recall to websites like Wikipedia. Our concentration spans will shrink and shrink as we continue to need constant tiny doses of social media gratification.

Ever spent a little time on your phone and then wondered where all of the time went? Smart phones are a ridiculous time sink that are more trouble than they are worth IMO.
>>
>>51609699
I just don't use mobile data and never use my phone when in the presence of another person as it feels disrespectful as fuck. Problem solved, of course I do still spend 99% of my free time alone shitposting online, watching anime and playing video games so maybe its just the internet in general that's the problem, not saying everyone is like me but really nearly everyone my age is wasting alot of time online also.
>>
There's simply 0 phones out there that can even remotely match the functionality and utility of a Note 4

I wish they still made handheld devices design to be held in your hand, rather than satisfying some visual design ideal.
>>
>>51608166
If you only care about battery time and don't use any apps or technologies which didn't exist on an old non-smart phone you're a very basic and limited user and your opinion on what's important in a phone matters as little as the opinion of my 85-year old grandmother.

You can easily get dumbphone battery life out of a smartphone by nuking Google botnet and greenifying everything else. Debloater and leandroid, too.

This phone right here argues that by existing.

It's just as functional, it's scratch proof and waterproof, and basically drop proof unless you throw it off a cliff--much more durable than an old phone. And it has functionality that they did not have--gps, 4G, enough resolution to watch movies and stuff, and enough processing power to play and emulate games.

I think you just need a ruggedphone.

You're reading the statement the wrong way.
If they're not getting more powerful, they shouldn't keep adding cores like they're the next AMD.
Instead they should focus on power saving with what they have, and in turn make life better for everyone.

I don't need a smartphone because I don't need to take gay selfies while tweeting about blacklivesmatters and other liberal faggy shit.

What do you need the larger capacity screens and keyboards for when 99% of your faggy "conversation" is posting "I literally can't even..." on Fagbook.
