How is this so hard to noodle out?

A lot of people don't want to carry around some big cumbersome device. Phones are fragile and yet are exposed to more abuse than most other electronic devices, and they are incredibly easy to steal. A lot of people don't want the expense of a device that stands a good chance of being lost, stolen, or broken.

As for the power most people really don't need it. Humanity somehow managed to survive until 2010 without the ubiquitous smartphone, yet somehow now not only is survival dependent upon it it requires top-of-the-line specs? Give me a break. The masses lie and say it is absolutely necessary for their job or schooling, yet in reality they just waste time of things like Instagram (the epitome of pointlessness) and Facebook. To top it off, even a high end smartphone has an internet experience that is far inferior to that found on a mundane ol' fashioned computer.

Too many smartphone fanboys use their phone as a substitute for human friendship and oftentimes drool over them to the point of objectophilia.

It's just a phone people. It's nice to see them advancing, but have we really gotten to the point with this fanaticism that we can't imagine someone NOT wanting to focus their entire life around their phone?
