I think phones might be getting a bit over-powered

8-core, DDR4 memory, and 64-128 GB of SSD... These things are boasting more resources than my 3-year-old luggable workstation. Seems that phones are going with the model "don't bother optimizing code because the hardware will make up for it" that has been plaguing desktops for the past few years.
