Question Substitute for Laptops

Which handheld device is the best substitute for laptops? I mostly use my laptop only for study purpose and sometimes for games. So which device do you thing is the best substitute for a laptop (if there are any)?

Default Re: Substitute for Laptops

My phone has taken the place of my work laptop. My job involves me traveling to customers' locations to troubleshoot/work so my company issues a netbook to us all. It previously used an inbuilt cellular card but we are now supposed to use the hotspot on our company phones. I use my personal phone (ZTE Axon 7) in its place as it has a nice sized screen and is way faster.

For me, it's my Surface Pro but any decent Windows based tablet would be workable. I like to be able to run full fledged Windows programs such as browser, spreadsheet, word processing, etc... instead of some severely feature restricted app on an Android or iOS based tablet.

I run the exact same programs on my tablet as I do on my desktop and laptop.

Do you think a phone will be suitable because it easier to carry around and use it? I'm thinking of purchasing one? what are your ideas about this: https://www.sellist.com/trade/sri_la...note-4-used-36

That will definitely work.
