The Smartphone Camera Is Changing The World...And Here's How?

Let’s face it, prior to 2007, we had phones equipped with nothing more than low-end and unsophisticated point-and-shoot cameras that we un-apologetically used for capturing our experiences, moments, events, etc. (albeit most images were grainy, blurry, and pixelated).
