Bitzer, 05 Nov 2021How about Nintendo SwitchListening music and watching videos on that don't make much sense.

But for gaming yes, I am one of the people that plays on the Switch on the go or in train.

chris1998, 05 Nov 2021So why not just buy android box. Flash it so u can play emu... moreAll android boxes are trash. A mini pc is much better for emulation. But is it portable and play anywhere like a phone? No. Classic games are much better experience than the trash on the playstore. Do you enjoy those? Good for you for being not bored by those then. Gamesir x2/razer kishi plus phone and you're good to game anywhere.

[deleted post]So why not just buy android box. Flash it so u can play emulators. Who really wants to play a classic game on a 6.4inch mobile phone . Emulators only come in handy if you're super bored or have like a long flight or a 3 hour train Journey

At these prices, I see Asus going down in about one year, just like OnePlus and others that tried to copy Apple prices.

At home I prefer to watch my stuff on my monitor or TV instead, but on the go a laptop is less convenient.

But I can do even with 64gb storage, since I'm not watching them all the time and hence they are on an external hdd. But even 3TB isn't enough for me.

Ever heard sites like gogoanime, 1anime, kickassanime ? You can watch all types of anime in there as it will have all the popular anime that is scheduled to come out and you dont even need to have account in these sites. Also eztv site lets you stream all the tv shows, cartoons and anime if they have any.

I don't think someone cant afford a PC if he wants to buy a phone for that price. 1tb used laptop only $300 now my brother got i3 7002u and mx250 plus DVD RW.

This phone is very safe cause of extra cooling system which he have.

Just because you need storage doesn't mean everyone needs it for same reasons, also in my country internet is damn expensive so I tend not to stream movies/anime on the go because of that.

Ideally a 64/128gb phone would be fine for most of it had a microsd card slot, but because companies like Asus, Apple, Xiaomi or Samsung don't earn from you buying their lowest storage flagship because it has a microsd card slot, they removed it so you have to get the more expensive phone for more storage.

Common business practice, not a smartphone world exclusive thing to begin with.
