I'd disagree, lp/mm is not useful as a small sensor will win over a big one (it has smaller pixels to resolve detail and a smaller lens where it's easier to get more resolution per mm, essential even).

Which is why I said it was used to compare glass only, not sensors.

However that means the Canon has 600 lp of resolution over the face's height and the phone 120 lp. I'm thinking the Canon will look a lot sharper.

Sure, the Canon sensor is sharper.  But how do you propose to get that sensor into the phone then?  Otherwise, I'm not sure it's relevant.

As far as I know, no one currently makes an interchangeable sensor camera.  Though I'd like to see someone try it.  For now though, they do make interchangeable lens cameras, which is why lp/mm, comparing only the glass itself,  is a useful and practical measure.
