So what are you saying?

Are you saying that cameras should include a SIM for 'instant communications'?

No thanks, I do not want my camera becoming a phone.

Or are you saying that cameras should eliminate all buttons and dials and go touch only?

No thank you, in spades.  I do not want touch anything on my camera, but I do want a plethora of buttons and dials that give me direct acces to camera functions.  I also want as many of those buttons as possible to be customizable so I can customize the camera to the way I like to use it.

I think you may be confusing casual photography (snapshots, if you will), with the needs of photographers (people who have a strong interest in capturing the best image possible).

I have a smartphone, and micro four thirds mirrorless and FF DSLRs.  Each have their place when it comes to taking photos.  But when I am out to take the best images I can, the smartphone is not on the list of choices of which camera to use.

The images from my smartphone are actually pretty decent, but no way would I use the smartphone as my first, or only, choice.

But to each their own.  If the smartphone is what works for you, then that is what you should use.
