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?

Only a-focally, which is a pretty substantial image quality compromise.

Using that telescope as the lens in the same way you use your DSLR?

No, I used the dSLR at prime focus.

Ah, ok. I'd heard of people using phones and telescopes, but I get you.
