If you are only interested in snapshots then by all means, any camera phone will do but if you are at all interested in the technical aspects of photography and trying to achieve something worth looking at then you need a proper camera.

Ok, I'm sorry, but the implication that you need a proper camera for to "achieve something worth looking at" is a bunch of total B.S. There's plenty of times when you're having a good time, maybe at your anniversary, on a date, doing something fun unexpectedly, or just plain want to take a pic to rub in the face of your friends who didn't come with you that you can get a pic who's "worth looking at" value is not dependent at all on whether you could squeeze some more pixels of resolution into the picture.

What you have described in that paragraph is the essence of a snapshot, not photography. (and is in no way related to pixel count)
