Exact my thoughts ! Literally every word.It depends.
When you are young you have time for all this then fine. The raw hardware matters to you.
Once you reach a particular age when time is more important and the experience matters more than the hardware you start moving away from all this "nonsense"
So it's a individual perspective.
10 years back blocking ads through various ways would have been a enjoyable exciting experience but not now.
So I can say that there is a large market for such a device otherwise people can't sell in black on olx etc!!
