It's a more powerful computer than anything you could buy even 5 years ago, and it fits in your pocket.I just don't get the attraction of these phones. The only reason that I have an iPhone is because it was a hand-me-down from my wife who used to get a new one every other year for work. I think that the one I have is a 6s. It's more than adequate for me.
yeah, they are arguably the pinnacle of electronics in 2020. Something so powerful and small. A smartphone (maybe not an iPhone) is first and only computing device for so many people around the world. I still remember having a Palm PDA that needed to be tethered to PC to download stuff and be more useful, a memory stick mp3 player, camera, GPS, and laptop. All separate devices which have been more usefully combined into one. If only a large screen would fit into my pocket.It's a more powerful computer than anything you could buy even 5 years ago, and it fits in your pocket.
That may not be an interesting use case for you, for many of us it makes our jobs and lives possible.
