    But why? Who needs AI in their smartphone?!

    I don't like this push for everything to be smart enough to know what you want, before you know you want it - Not because of a fear of a Skynet style judgement day scenario, but because it's going to make the human race even lazier and more incompetent at doing things for themselves...

    Need to get somewhere but reading street signs and using your organic sense of direction just too much effort? Let the GPS walk you through it step-by-step.

    That parking space look a bit tight? Let the car do it...

    Wan't to impress the in-laws with a perfect Sunday roast? Just chuck it all in the smart oven and tell it to give you a buzz (to your AI phone, naturally) when it's ready.

    Don't know what to put in the washing machine together or what setting to put it on? Don't matter, the smart washer does!

    Not sure if your tie matches your suit? SMART WARDROBE KNOWS FASHION!

    All of those things sound like things I'd like to have!

    The kirin 650 in my P9 lite already has nice performance in games and any other apps I use daily, also have very nice battery life compared to all my other phones I had in the past 6 years. Improvement is always welcome :)
