Are Smartphones Killing Digital Cameras?

With the cameras built into smartphones get more and more advanced, people using smartphone instead of cameras to capture life moments has become a norm because of the advantage of the smartphone being always with us.

Although the digital cameras in smart phones are still inferior to dedicated digital cameras, they are constantly getting closer. Both Huawei’s Mate 9 and iPhone 7 Plus has two camera lenses which renders images in unprecedented details.

The chart from Statista with the data from Camera & Imaging Products Associations (CIPA) shows the number of shipped digital cameras reduced significantly from 121.5 million in 2010 to 24.2 million in 2016, a 80% decrease.
