Techopedia explains Phonetography

In 2013, global shipments of digital cameras fell by 30 percent, largely as a result of the increasing quality of smartphone cameras. This shift is believed to have started with the release of the Apple iPhone 4 and 4S, the first smartphone able to produce photos rivaling a decent point-and-shoot camera.

The proliferation of photography apps also has helped spur a shift toward phonetography by allowing users to apply filters and personalize their photography.
