As far as functions, I agree. But they are more powerful, have faster processors, more memory and storage greater capacities, they have brighter screens with greater resolutions, batteries with longer run times and faster charging, and more "improvements" in those areas. Nah! Sorry, but that's just silly. Designers are NOT intentionally and coding apps to specifically use more resources. Give developers more credit! This would suggest there is a HUGE conspiracy between developers most of whom are independent or who work for different, and competing software companies - not the hardware makers. It just makes no sense any developer worth his or her salt would intentionally make their app a resource hog. An app may be poorly coded due to poor coding skills, but a competing product from a more skilled developers would quickly take the greater market share. Where did I ask if you are being stupid? Right, because the following makes sense? "Anything that has smart in front of it, isn't for smart people". I guess cars that save lives by automatically braking, alerting drivers to side traffic and lane drifting, adaptive cruise control, etc. are only for stupid people.
