How is this for an example? The S5pro (with a low 6 MPix sensor that
dates bake to more than 4 years ago) has a better DR than the
camera's you talk about...

The S5 does pixel-level HDR; it does not contain any pixels with high DR (not any higher than anyone else, anyway).

It does a good job of capturing highlights that would have clipped, while maintaining low exposure indices, but it does nothing good for sensitivity; probably a little damage, as some of its photon capture is lost with the pixel structure, and discarded in the HDR conversion.
