"I still think it's weird that the only connector for Ethernet is still this ancient phone company thing that's too big to fit on so many modern devices. Especially if you look at how many connectors there are for, say, USB or HDMI."

The phone (RJ) legacy is definitely related to twisted pairs being so phone cabling based. As much as it's big at least anyone with a $20 crimp tool can make one - wouldn't be true for terminating with some mini molded connection like is the case of USB et al. Pros & cons both.
Cheers,
