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.
