CptFox152515dMy 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.
CptFox152515dA T420 !? Damn you're frugal, I'm pretty sure an S8 has a better CPU xD
Root5133715d@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.
magicMirror552015dStop 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.
M1sf3t410215dJust gonna go ahead and leave this here since you guys brought it up, kermit sent me the link the other day as a possible temporary replacement for my mbp since its gotten so dated. Maximum ram is only 4gb but considering the price, the specs really don't seem all that bad.
MagicSowap16614dI 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)
CozyPlanes2974814dS10 plus seems to be the best option if you are not under budget.. 😅😅
