Think of it in terms of modularity. You do not have to carry and think about a camera which will quickly become obsolete (or is already obsolete) compared to superior cameras that are available. Phone cameras are almost uniformly terrible, because they are tacked on as extra features with really no impact on the usability of the phone. They just waste money and space producing images which could be beaten by a 2-year-old drawing with crayons. I /hate/ phone cameras, because a horrifying number of people have become convinced they can take lasting photos of important events using their telephones, and they only figure out how wrong they were when it is too late.
<br><br>Sure, your phone doesn't have a camera, but it does have lots of room for expandability. An external camera, actually built specifically to take decent pictures, talking to the phone wirelessly, would work much better. (Except for batteries, which is an interesting problem).
