Re: My iPhone 6 is better than my X100F

The phone camera is a snapshot camera exactly because the majority of its users are using it as just that- to record memories, events, moments in time, family history, etc., with minimal attention to more artistic elements.

The fact that it is a much, much better camera than a Brownie or an Instamatic is a matter of technical progress. The extensive software and computing power in the phone enables the phone camera to pay attention to at least some of those more artistic elements for the snapshooter, resulting in much nicer results. The ease of use element is the same.

"Snapshot camera" is description of a function, not a level of quality.
