I'm starting to get tired of fake cell phone blur

Initially I thought it was a good idea, and I still think it works OK with actual portrait FOVs....

But I see stuff like this... not to pick on this guy.... but it just looks a bit silly. Like a carefully applied blur brush. The main issue is the perspective... part of why portrait lenses "melt backgrounds" is because they blow them up to look less busy. With a wide lens, even with blurred backgrounds it's still very busy.
