You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, and the way you talk it sounds like you're a marketing major which would explain it.

Do you seriously expect a cell phone camera, with a lens that's literally 2.5mm in diameter, to ever be able to take a picture like this one?

Just so you know, this is the "lens" that took that picture:

Or this one:

Or this one:

Cell phones are limited by their teeny tiny form factor to lenses that fit into a tiny corner of their teeny tiny form factor, thus they will NEVER be superior to a system which can accept a far larger piece of optics.

Remember, cameras are mostly about optics, and Moore's law and Google's software doesn't allow you to overcome the laws of optics.

But you can mount a smartphone on that giant telescope, right? Using that telescope as the lens in the same way you use your DSLR?

If you want the phone lens to get in the way of what the scope can do yea. Phones cant offer prime imaging, ILC can.
