This. People should talk more like this. The best camera phone of the world can take nice photos. The 10th best camera phone can, too. The difference between them is so small it ultimately doesn't matter. Brands were caught (not naming names here) using professional DSLR photos as if they were taken with a smartphone, and of course the Internet caught up with it.
Cameraphones on top shelf are truly good, almost as good as standalone point-and-shoots. The difference isn't in megapixels, or in quantity of lenses: it's in sensor size and capacity of shifting focus. Cameraphones, regardless of brand, will never be able to beat a good camera on sensor size alone.
The best camera is the one you always have with you, they say. It's true, and it's where convenience happens. I love having a very good camera on me at all times. But any time I want truly great photos, any time I sense I can capture great moments when I go out, I take my real camera with me.
