Hm. Not sure I'm on boat with this one - I have to deal with pictures of rather... questionable quality every now and then, but I don't get the mental jump from "bad pictures are taken with smartphones" to "campaign against smartphones!".

I've seen very bad pictures taken with absolutely great DLSRs. For people like me, I'd guess the problem there are the differing standards of the person taking the picture and whoever then is supposed to use it (say, e.g. in a local sports club's website). You're not fixing bad photography with more pricy hardware.
