why would camera companies need computational when their picture quality is way better than smartphone camera? What they need to do is add social media features...so the picture can be shared instantly.

Why? Because computational photography is used even with high quality cameras by some of us.

Examples are in-camera HDR, focus stacking, stacking for noise reduction, pixel shift, and so on. I prefer to do this in post, but sometimes it's nice to do it in-camera as well. I'd like to see it for panoramas for example, so that I could preview results rather than waiting until I return home.

But I agree about better sharing. I was asked on a recent trip to share and given I shoot raw it was a too convoluted procedure to get them an image compared to my phone.
