PC – Personal Computer, meaning personal computer. It could be Laptop or PC Desktop.
It has a CPU, GPU, keyboard, monitor and runs Windows, Linux or MacOS. The PC is referred to as a specialized device for office data entry, image editing, programming, gaming, and more.
For the time being, the smartphone is known as a compact smartphone, with touch screen, powerful chip, buffalo battery.

From the definition, we can see: PCs are more specialized, and smartphones are more mobile. So what have smartphone OEMs been doing to turn smartphones into PCs?
#2. The change of smartphone
Smartphones and PCs have been changing over time, and that change shortens the hardware gap:
A Snapdragon flagship chip can be clocked as high as, or even higher than, an Intel Core i3 or i5 chip on a PC.
The smartphone is also perfectly compatible with accessories such as a keyboard, mouse, external hard drive or even a Gamepad. In short, smartphones and PC computers are closer to each other in terms of hardware quality.
As for software, Samsung DeX from Samsung provides users with the interface of office applications similar to PCs, the same operations with PCs.
Sony Playstation provides smartphones with the ability to play horrible games like PCs right on smartphones, the ability to render videos on smartphones is nearly as close to the PC
So are smartphones ready to replace PCs?
# 3. Limitations of smartphones
The answer is no ! Smartphones are not enough to completely replace a PC.
The first reason: About the ability to replace hardware. Not to mention Laptops, PC computers give you the ability to customize your hardware as you like.
You can replace CPU, GPU, custom Ram and Rom, radiators, upgrade modules and drivers via software, etc., replacing it at your own discretion, to meet your needs.
Smartphones cannot do that. You can only replace an existing component when it's broken, not customize what the OEM has arranged unless you buy a new device.
The second reason is dedicatedness: You cannot program on a smartphone. If so, which platform will you program? Java? Or some simple electronic devices?
It is not natural that people render videos, edit media on PCs. It's also not natural that people use PCs to edit or type instead of smartphones.
Reason 3: Smartphone to be able to turn into a PC will lose Mobile. Smartphones were born and became more popular than Tablet due to its mobility.
And to turn a smartphone into a PC, with the technologies that OEM smartphones provide us, we need a smartphone, a keyboard and a mouse. It's not much more than carrying a laptop with you.
# 4. Conclude
Smartphones can completely replace PCs, but for now this will not happen.
