Virtual horizons on smartphones

We all know that smartphones today have built in accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers. With all these orientation-aware stuff packed in, why can't any phone manufacturer enable a feature like a 'virtual horizon' on the camera viewfinder? Most DSLRs and mirrorless cameras have this feature today.

I have the HTC One (M8). When you take a panoramic photo, it uses a rectangular bar that you can use to make sure your picture is level and follows where you are trying to shoot. I got in June of 2014..One month before you posted this question.
