CptFox1722106dMy guess is that as much as they're probably get at desktoping, I have some doubts about compile time and IDE load
3) Limited specs
5) Limited toolchain support
7) Easily lost/stolen
Also, they're pretty slow.
CptFox1722106dA T420 !? Damn you're frugal, I'm pretty sure an S8 has a better CPU xD
Root53089106d@lawzava Probably, but I didn't research it apart from the little but required to get the toolchain working on my S7e. It had issues, and compiling was about as slow as I expected. Totally fine for one-off builds, but I would hate to iterate on a project with it. YMMV depending on just what you're building, but I can't imagine it being a pleasant dev experience having a phone, especially a low-spec phone, as your daily builder.
magicMirror5951106dStop right there.
Why not a raspi with a 30k miliwat/hw battery + 128gb sdcard as a main dev device?
Essentially the same as a phone - but much better specs, better battery, can connect a real keyboard, normal monitor. same mobility.
Oh - no phone calls while you code. Shrug. forget it then.
MagicSowap194106dI tried (because my phone has a a better cpu -snapdragon 855- than my laptop -celeron n4100-).
It's not too bad with AnLinux, but you need some sort of dock for your phone and some linux stuff is missing but it can work as a dev machine (no need to root your phone btw).
(if you use Intel intrisics in your projects with no fallback to ARM neon or scalar operations... You're screwed)
CozyPlanes29250105dS10 plus seems to be the best option if you are not under budget.. 😅😅
One of our senior devs won a contract by developing a demo app in two hours during a child's birthday party on a 9" tablet.
After the project started, he then used the same tablet to code a huge feature that the client asked for only a few days before we were due to fly to their office to demo the final app. He coded it all on the flight and only had enough space to code with one hand. It was JS and WebGL shaders as well!
JS, WebGL, one flight, one hand, one contract, one client who'd never seen their data visualised in such a useful way.
