The new iPhone and its competitors hope to make laptops obsolete – Los Angeles Times

LaNada Peppers uses her Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for nearly everything.

As a journalist and communications manager, the 35-year-old relies on her smartphone to take photos, update social media, write stories, book interviews, capture video and send emails. When she needs to type fast, she connects a portable keyboard. If she needs to edit audio, an app does the job.

“Essentially, I live on this thing and don’t know what I would do without it,” she said.

Yet she still lugs around a laptop for things her phone can’t do as well: editing photos and video and storing and backing up files.
