    I don't agree that our use cases are much more demanding now than they were 5 years ago. We still mostly watch videos, text, use social networks and messaging apps. The hardest "task" for the average consumer is processing Instagram, Snapchat and other apps video and photo filters. CPU improvements in our phones are becoming irrelevant because we are still limited to 5-7 inches displays and can't truly multitask or do "serious work" such as compiling code, expert videos, open 20+ tabs in the browser and easily manage them etc.
