Untill now, smartphones were (practically) stand-alone devices. Wearables and home automation and IOT are like peripherals to smartphones. It seems to me it takes a different strategy and features to succeed in an environment where connecting with other devices is important. For example, I may pick my next smartphone based on how well it works wth the smart watch I want to have on my wrist.
