I think it would be prudent to take the story about how the images came to be taken and the review to be written with a grain of salt.

Few images could be less likely to show a difference: in particular, the light is good but the dynamic range is low.  But, sure, it is not news that if you pick subjects that don't stress the capabilities of small sensors the results will be hard to tell from the results with large sensors.

That is, you have to ask the right question, and LL has asked the wrong question.  If you ask "Can you take great photographs with small sensor cameras / phone cameras?" the answer is "yes".  But if you ask "Are there great photographs you cannot take with a small sensor camera / phone camera?" the answer is also "yes".  And you use a large sensor camera / SLR because you want to take all the great photographs, not just some of them.
