General phone fluidity and responsiveness improve a lot when the SoC is better.
Also yes as you say things like gaming and so fourth are improved

Also camera functionalities and software is vastly improving so needs more of a kick. But you are right, its mostly gaming and app software.

We're at the point where there is no excuse for that anyway, it's just manufacturer bloatware bogging the phones down or a plethora of background apps.

I've never had responsiveness issues with my current phone, except for poor reception.

The 120Hz screen certainly is a welcome improvement but that doesn't require top end hardware either for most apps.

Well a phone doesnt require 120hz anyway. Gaming or not. But it can have it.

Yeah, it doesn't require it, but I reckon that's the next step forward instead of more oomph.
