Question about Quad Bayer and Pixel Binning on a phone

Hey everyone,

I'm just curious on what the advantages and disadvantages of pixel binning are on a phone. Like the only thing I can see it being is a good marketing tool and keeping the phone slim. Wouldn't a sensor with bigger pixels be better than a 108MP QB sensor? Also is the binning done through software or through hardware?

If you shoot RAW on a QB sensor would it not just be the 108MP readout instead of the binned 12MP, or would the RAW be binned?  I just don't see advantages for QB compared to disadvantages.
