  1. They should just make the whole phone thicker to eliminate the camera bump, the camera bump is much worse than a thicker phone in my opinion. They could utilise the extra space for a bigger battery as well.

  2. It also greatly depends on the camera module, some manufacturers have a larger camera module that takes 1/8th of the space, while some, have a very small camera module to make room for the bigger battery. Design factors have to be included too like a headphone jack and NFC /wireless coil with linear motor vibration etc.

  3. Sorry but there's no excuse for camera bumps. Because, what's stopping the manufacturer from filling the rest of the phone out to make it flush with the bump and this removing the "bump". The extra space can be used for more battery, more memory or anything else. Heck, even if they used it for nothing useful, the benefit of having a phone with a flat back will be awesome. No more rocking phones when on a desk.

  4. To me: as a photographer who uses mostly a dedicated camera (cause my Xiaomi Pocophone F1 8s absolutely shit), I don't care (also because my phone sits in a rubber case). I'd be absolutely fine with a 1cm thick phone which offers room for a good camera (I don't need 3, 4 or more lenses) and a huge battery (4,000 – 6,000 mAh). Making a smartphone as thin as possible (with disadvantages) but have a huge camera bump sticking out (which makes the phone wobbly on a flat surface) is pure nonsense.

  5. Its just mysterious why Manufacturer put such big and many expensive Cam-sensors in a phone at the expense of a apropriate Lens.

    Good old Nokia 1020 got me great Macro Bokeh with Zeiss Lens. It has to be thick to produce good Macroshots with a big sensor.

    Sadly nobody buys something like a Panasonic CM1 Smartphone, thats why i am still on two phones. Its not cost effective to produce something like this.

  6. Since "under-display camera" solution will be the new trend on smartphone industry, how about they will tuck it in the upper bezel of the phone? Like they will increase the bezel on the upper part.

  7. I remember when people were complaining about the camera bumps. That is when phones were getting rid of the bumps. Just like they had complained about the thickness of the phone. Then all of a sudden camera bumps are back. I never minded the camera bump as long as the camera is good. Just like I rather them make the phone a little thicker if that means 5 thousand milliamp or bigger battery. It's funny how things change. Maybe in a few years, people will start wanting no camera bump again.
