Using layout fragments


What is the point of it if you lose the ability to remove, replace, or detach fragments? Isn’t that the whole point of fragments anyway? Why not just use an activity and save a little time?
I’m not opposed to using fragments, just wondering if there’s something I’m missing here about its usefulness.


It has one major advantage: you can easily specify which fragment gets loaded where on the screen in which configuration. That’s not easy to do with dynamic fragments.
