Many people would rather the government take care of them.  One of the
main attractions of HAM is that in an emergency, you can take care of
yourself, your loved ones, or better yet, help out others ( a foreign
concept for some outside the United States, and to most millenials, who
would rather more government aid, intervention and rations.) 
Presently, it is quite easy for someone to broadcast stations via voip.
 In turn, downloading broadcastify or a number of other apps allows you
to listen to rf coms world wide and makes the idea of HAM seem
irrelevant. but when the cell towers go down, or a world wide DNS
attack happens, or any of the millions of other scenarios that could
possibly "bring down the net", HAM is still a viable alternative,
especially in remote areas or during emergencies, especially using
simplex.  I visited Yosemite National Park several months ago, and once
you leave the valley near the hotel and cabins, your phone becomes a
paperweight. Listening to the conversations of nearby youths, the idea
that mobile service not existing there seemed beyond the realm of
possibility. Likewise, during an emergency, cell service may be
limited, either from the emergency, or through carrier rationing, and
communication during such events can make a big difference.  
You might have tried out HAM to see what it is all about, and found
that for you it is pointless.. For better or worse, the removal of
morse code has allowed many people to try the hobby with nearly no
effort at all to become licensed other than downloading an app and
memorizing the answers.  In any case, to use and familiarize yourself
with CHIRP will enable you to program numerous radio devices with
linux. 
With all that being said, a smart phone might work better for you.  But
CHIRP won't work with a smart phone.
