Just an observation, OK? Sometimes the JPG is better.

I shot some outdoor shots of people at a meeting. RAW + JPG. In editing, I notice that the JPG looks so much better! The camera processing took much better care of noise, sharpening, but most of all automatic lens correction for Chromatic Aberration! Take a look at these 100% crops:

The fence shows it fairly well, but the back of his shirt outlined in red (plus several other objects in the rest of the frame) all showed it. The RAW has a lot of CA and the JPG is perfect!

Not sure what the moral of the story is except take a look at both when editing, and always shoot both, not just RAW. Sometimes the RAW can save your butt, sometimes the JPG is better.

JPEG is never better.  What has happened here is that the camera has chosen settings more to your liking.  RAW which has been post processed into a JPEG will always be better provided you know what you are doing.

All you have shown here is your inability to make a good JPEG from RAW.  Instead of posting to tell us about your ignorance, learn what RAW can do and improve your post processing technique.
