Does any UHH member have an Iphone 14 and a "real" Camera? Would you take shots with both?

There has been a lot of talk about cell phone cameras. I would like to suggest a way to get insight into the difference between 8*10 or UHD TV or UHD monitor or UHD monitor.
Can pros tell the difference? On what criteria? Can amateurs tell the difference?

1) pick a few objects, a book, a knick-knack, a pet, a stop sign, a ruler, a piece of graph paper.
2) from a variety of positions and distances, take pairs of pictures 1 from each device.
3) for each pair flip a coin as to which to display first.
4) ask the person looking at the pair which is better? Which is from the phone?

Is there an arithmetical way to to compare zooming, moving closer, and cropping from a higher megapixel file?

I do not own an iPhone 14, but I do own an iPhone 13. I use it often. Images are excellent. With improvements, I suspect the 14 is another winner. I sold my two Canon DSLR's and L lenses and opted for a Sony RX 10 IV to lighten the load. I have no problem using my iPhone for images. I'm not creative or even adept (tremors in right hand dominate), but I'm able to capture decent images with the iPhone 13.

There is no logical goal here. Every camera has strengths and weaknesses that make them better or worse in any specific situation.

What are you trying to justify? Are you trying to buy a new camera of some sort?

I've wondered if somewhere in the not too far future the name will be changed from iPhone to iCamera and the phone will be an add-on option. I'm sure that everyone has noticed when the new phone is released the major upgrades are to the cameras.

I have a <smart> phone and a camera, I DO take pictures with both.

Not gonna do all that "testing" for comparison, I like both.

Either one may look better, even with the same conditions.
Why make a mountain out of a molehill.
You'll either like what they do or not.
Does it matter what other people like to do?
Do what you like.

It’s not either/or, it’s different strokes for different folks.
Use what you like and don’t worry about what other people use or other people think.
For me, I don’t care for the smart phone’s small sensor and lack of view finder.
It’s all personal preference, there is no right or wrong.

Addendum to my quote. I have used my phone on occasion but nothing can or will ever replace the versatility of my camera system.

1. Maybe...

2. That's because no one is interested in operating system upgrades.
(One OS upgrade that I really like on my S21 over my S-III is that ALL apps can be switched to (concurrently) not just five. BIG, BIG improvement!)

I have an iPhone 13 Pro Max and a “real” camera. The camera in the iPhone is a real camera. I use both and am pleased with the images produced by the iPhone as well as “real” camera.
