What are we talking about?

Can you post a sample from your phone that is optically zoomed in roughly the same amount?

Well no more than you can show me an example of how your camera makes phone calls or posts to Youtube, we are not talking about comparing dis-similar features, we are talking about comparing shots from dedicated cameras vs this phone at the same focal length......but you knew that

I'm not sure what we are talking about, or are supposed to be talking about. Your points seem to be logically consistent with:

  • I shot this without a zoom lens, why should anyone bother with zooms?
  • I shot this without a flash, why should anyone use a flash?
  • I shot this without a tripod, I don't get why people buy tripods?
  • I shot this using auto exposure, what's the point of manual exposure?
  • I shot this using autofocus, why would anyone manually focus?
  • I did not use a lens hood for this shot, why they are necessary?
  • I uploaded this directly from my phone, what's the point in post processing?
