It’s not easier, but if you don’t have internet, and when you need to read from your phone, then, it’s more useful than nothing.
Is it easier to scroll on a phone? No, for some reasons, not yet.
This mostly has to do with how much info can be displayed in one screen page without scrolling.
The more info, the more technical it gets, and quite frankly, the more complex it is to understand and know about for people who don’t understand that.
I currently don’t have internet on my phone, though I used to have internet on another of my phone before. I used the EVE Gate from a tablet sometimes, as I didn’t have access to the EVE Client, or from the libraries’ desktop computers.
I’m planning to get a new phone that could do that but I’ll likely get the phone from Europe once I move there, if the battery is safe enough to use the device that is, of course.
