You may be overlooking the fact that most pics are shared on the Internet anymore and even a basic P&S has greater capability than we actually need for most sharing.

As an example, here's a picture I took with my Canon Powershot ELPH 100HS which I bought for $100:

Pixel peep all you want, it doesn't make a bit of difference as this looks great on Facebook.

As I said I think the main difference for the layman is likely to be low light performance and perhaps some moderate DOF control.

ISO 100 in daylight is "good enough" for most even with a basic compact/phone but say ISO 1600 is going to look ropey even at a low resolution.
