And yes, smartphone users want all that too.

So no, while some would very much wish to indulge the wishful thought that smartphone photography R&D will peter out and evaporate like a bad dream, the reality will be anything but that.

I don't want smartphone R&D to peter out. I still say that the vast majority of smartphone users find the cameras of their phones just fine the way they are and more features and R&D into the cameras will do little if anything to spur sales. When that happens R&D will go into other things besides the camera.

These smartphone companies got R&D money to burn. So don't expect R&D into smartphone cameras to stop.

You don't know that and if true you have no idea they will not diverte R&D to other areas of smartphone tech. The only reason smartphones are sold is to produce profits. If cameras in phones no longer contribute to those profits, camera improvements will stall.
