The smartphone did totally replace the cheap P&S camera and can be rightfully blamed for their sales decline.

But at a cost.

My wife has stopped carrying around her compact and instead shoots with her Galaxy S8 now.  However, her compact had a focal length range of 25-500mm equivalent.  Looking at her pictures, she didn't make much use of the 300mm+ range, but she made extensive use of the range between 50mm and 200mm equivalent and modest use of the range between 200mm and 300mm equivalent.  Now, with her cell phone, she simply misses all those shots.
