10 ways your smartphone has already replaced your laptop – Greenbot

For the past few years, people have been discussing whether the PC is really dead. While many argue that there will always be a place for a bigger screen, a more powerful processer, and a physical keyboard…there’s no denying that people spend a ton of time on their smartphones.

You might think that your laptop is your pride and joy—and that your smartphone could never, ever replace it—but is that really true? Let’s take a look at 10 of the ways your smartphone has already replaced your laptop as your go-to Internet/email/work/everything device.

It has a giant screen

As laptop screens get smaller (hello, Ultrabook-craze), smartphone screens are getting bigger. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a 5.7-inch screen, which is practically laptop-sized (okay, it’s still one fourth the size of the Macbook Air’s 11.6-inch screen), in my opinion.  

It has 128GB of storage

Don’t worry, I’m not going to pull one of those “the first PC had 2 bytes of memory” tropes on you—but your smartphone does have a lot of storage space, even compared to modern laptops. Plenty of entry-level Ultrabooks have 128GB SSDs. Why bother with a laptop when you can store everything on your phone? (And if not on your phone, in the cloud?)
