This is correct, in fact it is the only camera I use. I used to always use an SLR camera until the Nokia 1020 41mp revolutionised mobile phone technology.
The dilemma is always whether you happen to have your camera with you when you suddenly see something you would like to photograph. Since nearly all the pictures I take are entirely spontaneous then my phone camera is the only “smart” solution to this. Especially now that nowadays phone camera technology is developing really rapidly.
I still use my Samsung S7 but I have been really tempted to upgrade now to the S9 because of its dual aperture feature, but I read that the S10 due next year will also include a wide angle lens and so I am going to wait until then (if I started upgrading annually I would soon be in big trouble! )
The only feature that I really miss which the phone camera is not good at is a telephoto function. It is also not so good when there is a big contrast in lighting such a candle in a dark room.
Here are some recent examples of what I consider reasonable quality from a phone camera:

And a faithful reproduction of both bright and dark contrasts and the colours of the rainbow just as it was. I am always fascinated how so much detail can pass through such a small aperture on the back of my “phone”!
