I'm assuming you've been using VS for a few years, and my phone is now more powerful than the laptop I was using a few short years ago
Yes, and I can't make that comparison; I don't own a very recent smartphone. Still I'm sceptical whenever there's any such claim without a benchmark.

Performance matters[^] though.

Why wait? Remote Desktop into your desktop or decent laptop using whatever mobile thin client you prefer.

I'd recommend also carrying a light-weight keyboard (bluetooth) if you need to do some serious typing on a limited machine.
