Image quality

F***s given about image quality? zero.

I have some "proper" cameras and lenses (digital bodies, the old 35mm film SLR bodies are gathering dust) for decent photos.

It's a smart phone, it can happily replace MP3 player, SatNav, eBook (depending on size) etc but not a camera..

If I need, to take (for some reason) a quick snap with a phone then just good enough is typically good enough.

Theres some impressive maths at play working around the limitations of the tiny lens(es depending on the phone) in a phone camera to produce OKish shots, but cannot compete with the laws of physics and the light gathering capabilities of a high quality lens with a diameter many times greater (and a cost greater than the phone)
