High-quality camera cannot be made thinner any more, while the phone can, and so we have this pure ugliness - protruding camera. So, instead of all optics elements and sensor being on the same axis, why not simply have a mirror at 45 degrees beneath the front element and put the rest of the optics and the sensor at 90 degree angle with plenty of room?! Now the focal length is not limited by the thickness of the phone, and ugliness is no more. Why does it take a MR poster to do all the hard work??? Apple engineers, can you even read? Sheesh!
