But using a larger sensor also brings things with it that can be a problem for image quality for many phone camera users. Show my family a bunch of photos of a family gathering that all have shallow dof and they will just push them aside. They want everything in the photo to be as sharp as possible. If little Susie is in focus but Billy who is standing behind her is not, this is an immediate delete photo in their book. The small sensor sizes are part of the reason for the success of phone cameras

It would not be difficult to make the software in a large sensor smartphone to simulate the DOF from a small sensor smartphone. It would be a lot easier than implement many of the software tricks used on small sensor smartphones, FI for them to simulate shallow DOF.
