It was fine when they were just phones. But they helped kill cameras. Not because they replaced them, but because they killed any interest by the young in true photography or any hobbies or pastimes that they used to take interest in. Hobbies are dying on the vine, manned by an aging group. Even surgeons are complaining that young doctors lack the dexterity (which in-part came from hands-on labour in hobbies) do the job as well as they might have. Smartphones have subsumed the young.

Blimey, I'm not particularly young anymore but I don't think there's much truth in this. There's so much creativity out there from the 'young', I suppose it depends on your definition of 'true photography'.
