I still have the old Galaxy S-6. Works just fine for my needs. Decent enough camera. I'll use it for a bit of everything including browsing, Facebook, checking on my fantasy leagues, texting, and the rare phone call. :)  Mostly because of the tiny screen, I prefer my laptop or that ancient thing i believe they call a desktop computer.

Definitely agree that the small screen is annoying.  My vision ain't up to doing much with it.

About desktop computers, I haven't used one of those in maybe 10 years.  This laptop is enough, decent performance.  I just bought a monitor, wireless mouse and keyboard.  Same experience, one less computer to keep synched.

Use it for most things above plus when I need a bit bigger screen I use it as a hotspot and connect my tablet to it.

Interestingly, some new Samsung phones come with a desktop-style GUI in them that's activated by plugging them into a docking station, which supports a full-size screen, keyboard and mouse.  Reviews are mixed so far, but Samsung is committed enough to that GUI that they're also selling notebooks with it.

Can remember a thread on live years ago where I said that mobiles would become so powerful that you'd just have a screen and keyboard at home with a docking station instead of a pc. For most people's needs I'd say that they already are powerful enough to do this.

Reminds of something Nokia did back in 2014 with something called Continuum.

Getting there.  Reviews are mixed, but if a tablet is powerful enough for someone, this DeX thing would be at least powerful enough.  Of course, it's not portable like a tablet is...

Yep.  I'd never heard of it before but it is quite similar.

I use mine as a phone of course but also FB and internet & email, it also controls my heating, my work shifts, smartdrive at work, CCTV and if no wallet I can pay with it.

Wow Dave you gone all Hi tech. No I deliberately left it behind (and I am very tech aware) until I had to saw the massive addiction Bangkok around 2005/6. Same in UK and China where i travel a lot. Hated them. Now use it slightly more but prefer MacBooks think they are things of beauty.

Detest Google but wow ......... Google Maps and Google recommendations. Amazing.

As I live in North London in a massive high crime area (moped crime) like to keep my wits about myself.
