    I currently carry two iPhone 13s. One personal and one for work. They do have impressive cameras.

    @Searcy Last week I bought the Samsung S21 FE 5G and did some tests with it. I must say that the picture quality has improved considerably since my Samsung S10 :) I am going to do some more with it in the coming weeks.

    This second one is taken with the iPhone13

    Interesting. The "fokeh" on the iphone pic doesn't quite hold up on close inspection but it's getting a lot better. Probably one or two more generations and it will be very difficult to distinguish between natural and artificial bokeh.

    Agreed, the fake bokeh on the Samsung phones is a little hokey too, it has issues with edge and ground detection but I would say overall it's pleasant and overall works well. I'm just happy my phone battery lasts more than half the day and I have 3 lenses to work with now.

    With further testing, I actually have noticed that the sensors on the phone are actually large enough where the camera has difficulty getting everything in focus. It's crazy how far cameras have progressed.

    I am still using my Huawei P30 Pro but I have to say the camera is shyte and it was the hype about its camera that made me buy it.
    So what is the best camera/phone combo guys?
    Always learning.

    If you’re deep in the Apple ecosystem then I would say stick with Apple. You seem to be with Android and while I liked my Pixel 3 for photography, the rest of the hardware was lacking. I enjoy using my Samsung S22 but the night photography processing isn’t on par with the Pixel 3 but it still has a wide, normal and a 3x zoom lens with up to 30x digital zoom of which the 10x digital zoom gives very usable results.

    I have a Samsung note20. Nice camera system. its fun .. but I am going back to a "real" camera :-) in 2 days time. I think my new Zfc and Kit 16-50 will do nicely.
