> "dedicated hardware does a better job than general purpose one (cameras vs. smartphones)"

I think that depends on what you mean by "better job." For example, I have both a Nikon D-800 and an iPhone. The Nikon takes amazing pictures and the iPhone fits in my pocket. Most of the time, the "better job" I want is a camera that fits in my pocket. On occasion, the "better job" I want is a camera that takes amazing pictures.

I would never abandon either my camera or my phone because my "better job" frequently changes.
