As we continue to search for the best smartphone camera, let’s take a minute and enjoy the damn pictures

When, exactly, did we become so damn cynical about smartphone cameras? In my lifetime we’ve gone from Polaroids and those point-and-shoots with the crazy five- or six-shot (I don’t remember how many) flashes to friggin’ computers with 4- or 16- or even 20-megapixel shooters in our pockets. We’re able to take multiple pictures, select, edit and then share them with the world just seconds later. No more 24-hour processing. No more hoping you get the right prints back. No more lugging out large photo albums that you might care about once or twice a year. We have unlimited virtual storage.

So why the hell can’t we just enjoy the shots?
